Gucci Guilty Intense ramps it up but doesn’t rock the boat.

August 31, 2011

Gucci Guilty grew on me.  It launched in 2010 in a blaze of glory, all sexy ads and sleek intertwining G’s holding the seductive juice so it was bound to get lots of media attention. At first I thought it a bit samey but nothing to get your knickers in a twist over but, I […]

Terry Richardson photographs YSL’s new Beauty Campaign

August 30, 2011

When I first saw Yves Saint Laurent’s new beauty imagery for Autumn, if I hadn’t been already seated, it would have knocked me off my feet. Where do I start?  The Terry Richardson stark defiant pose and bold use of colour that we know and love?  Or, the ultimate muse…..Arizona Muse playing the ultimate YSL […]

Taste the Trends at Vista Bar at The Trafalgar during London Fashion Week

August 29, 2011

Those clever people at The Trafalgar Hotel reckon they have the best view in London. I can’t argue with them.  They do.  London’s landmarks surround you as you sip cocktails in the comfortable, cosseted roof terrace with heaters and foliage and attentive service.  In fact, I bet more than a few tourists wish they knew […]

Marc Jacobs – To Dior or not to Dior. That is the question.

August 24, 2011

Hmm. To use a vernacular, I’m not exactly feeling it. And, according to the tweets of various respected fashion cognoscenti, neither are they. It’s not best fit. It would be a strange choice indeed but an understandable one if LVMH decide to move ‘the man who is a celebrity in his own right’, Marc Jacobs, […]

Dolce & Gabbana launch New Creamy Foundation and Passion Duo Lipsticks

August 23, 2011

I love when one of my favourite brands adds to their already sizable collection.  I make no apologies for being a Dolce & Gabbana make-up fan – the matte yet conditioning shades, the high pigmentation colour, the glamorous packaging….it all adds up to sexy, workable make-up. And, while I love the original powder foundation compact […]

Chutzpah’s Weekly Barometer

August 20, 2011

A light hearted look back over the past week’s good, bad and indifferent including the “don’t even go there’s”. LOVINGCelebrity Big Brother (Channel 5) – Even though we don’t know who more than half of them are, the term ‘celebrity’ is more than dubious and just who can understand what Kerry, Tara and Paddy are rambling […]

Fornasetti, Masters of Style release new Home Fragrance designs

August 17, 2011

I’m obsessed with Fornasetti –  the style, the humour, the design, the attention to detail, the class.  It’s no wonder that these rich images find themselves stumbling into fashion, being the inspiration for many fashion and textile designers. For the uninitiated, Piero Fornasetti was a Milanese painter, sculptor, interior decorator, engraver of books and a creator […]

I want (Prada) Candy. Or do I?

August 16, 2011

Now, this is an interesting one.  Prada’s been confusing me greatly for the past few seasons.  Miuccia hit the home run in with her genius A/W ’10 ‘Mad Men’ meets ’50s jazz beatnik collection and sent outfit after covetable outfit down the catwalk that was replicated by high street brands the world over.  The ladylike […]

A light hearted look back over the past week’s good, bad and indifferent including the “don’t even go there’s”. LOVINGZARA – Team Chutzpah has a love/hate relationship with the Spanish retailer, but they seem to be pushing all of the right buttons this season with strong women’s and men’s collections.  Just loving the metallics, textural […]
