Roja Dove releases Risque at London’s Madame JoJo’s

April 25, 2012

The hint of the name and feel of this new fragrance launch was the venue in itself, Madame JoJo’s – famous Burlesque joint of past seedy glory days, of transvestism and tantrums, gangsters and players, cabaret and cocktails.  A number of my journalist colleagues commented they had never darkened its doors, a statement I can’t […]

Agent Provocateur’s ‘Classics’ Comedies Campaign

April 24, 2012

Hmm, don’t know how I feel about this short film from AP. Always risque and raunchy, the brand still managed to retain a bit of mystique and class as well as its inherent naughtiness compared to its more taudry high street imitators. This short film may well boost their internet site traffic amongst red hot […]

Yves Saint Laurent may well have been known for his sharp use of bright colour as well as Le Smoking tuxedo suit but there hasn’t been much joie de vivre in Stefano Pilati’s Spring 2012 collection, borne as it was from muted shades of loden green, deep purple, navy and black.

Fujifilm launch Astalift to the Premium Skincare Market in the UK

April 20, 2012

Earlier on this week, I went along to a skin care lunch. That may not be illuminating in itself judging by the number of new skincare product releases that occur on a weekly basis in a huge and ever developing market, but this launch caught my eye as the revolutionary (as always) skincare had been […]

Giorgio Armani designs for Lady Gaga’s Asian Tour

April 19, 2012

Not being her biggest fan and then some, I can at least appreciate Lady Gaga’s commitment to creating a look and a show for her ‘Little Sheep Monsters (just how patronising is that endearment?).  In the past she’s predictably attempted to shock in designs from Gareth Pugh to Nicola Formichetti at Mugler but now Gaga’s gone […]
