Pugh’s Drag Red Light Call Girls

September 20, 2015

Well that was a shocka! And no, I’m not referring to the quite quite brilliant, scarily reminiscent of Galliano/Margiela bag-lady meets clown make-up, but to the fact that Pugh, ever known for his doomsday Goth outlook, seemed to rejoice in colour. When I say colour, I mean red. Crimson, bright resplendent red that worked brilliantly […]

It’s not even #LFW Hump Day and…..

September 19, 2015

It’s only Day 2 of LFW and already we’re getting the lows (as well as the fashion highs) and we’re not even at Hump Day. Which in LFW terms is tomorrow, Sunday. Ironically, the day of great name shows like Saunders, Katrantzou, Margiela and Temperley. But believe me, when the lows come, they come aplenty. So […]

Music Is The Answer–Burberry and Apple Music

September 17, 2015

British music is as intrinsic to the Burberry brand as the trench coat and house check, so it’s really no surprise that the digital innovator is the first luxury fashion firm to team up with online streaming service Apple Music – especially as its parent company has nabbed three of Burberry’s top executives over the […]

No Sauvage

September 16, 2015

How do you think Johnny Depp smells? I only ask because the mercurial character actor, now in his early Fifties, has a new starring role as the face of Dior’s latest men’s fragrance Sauvage. Mostly known for his Keith Richards-channelling, campy pirate Captain Jack Sparrow it might be Rum, Sodomy, and chewing Tobacco, or a […]

Rodarte’s Lace & Sequin Sophisticates–SS’16

September 15, 2015

Rodarte may have accomplished a great fashion feat. In today’s SS’16 show they managed to make all over dense lace tights not only good but fashion-worthy. Something that’s nigh on impossible to do since 1985. Not only did the Rodarte girls show a sense of  fine balance with their raging statement maximalism that looked pretty, […]

Rose Fortescue is a clever cookie as well as a girl with her finger on the pulse of social media. Her instagram account is one of the best being glamorous witty and observant and her one-liners on E4’s Made in Chelsea have made her one of the more interesting characters.

Rosie Assoulin’s Statement Sportswear for SS’16

September 12, 2015

I’ve just stumbled across Rosie Assoulin, not a designer I’m overly familiar. This season, pics popped up on rolling social media forms from #NYFW and Assoulin’s point of difference is, well, being different from the reams of New York’ish simlicity. Contra traditionalist, Assoulin seems to play with her layered and trompe l’oeil pieces that takes […]

Tisci’s New York Givenchy Triumph – SS’16

September 12, 2015

Givenchy upcamped and showed in New York in preparation, no doubt, for the opening of the latest Givenchy store in the city where so many of Riccardo Tisci’s Givenchy clad celebs reside. It seemed fitting, then, that Tisci tastefully (what else?) choose to show a large collection ode not only to the triumphs from his […]

Perfect Timing – Some thoughts on the Hermés x Apple Watch

September 10, 2015

Right about now financial analysts, fanboys and fashion victims will be scrutinising Apple’s latest press conference, the usual Silicon-Valley-meets-Nuremberg-Rally Sturm und Drang. Sifting through the usual technological detritus (another iPad, ANOTHER iPhone model, this time featuring a “Selfie” button to save your poor, overused thumbs from an RSI, a kerching iPencil cross-selling opportunity), the real […]
