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

Still Sexy After All These Years–Antonio Berardi AW’15

February 23, 2015

  Not many designers can credit Gwyneth Paltrow’s derriere for raising their stock, but Antonio Berardi’s career hit a purple patch after the now consciously-uncoupled Mrs Martin chose to wear a sheer-panelled Berardi dress to the ‘Iron Man 3’ premiere. That dress, with its flattering cut, peplum, and kimono sleeves, not only showed the world […]

Between A Flock and a Hard Place–Mary Katrantzou AW’15

February 23, 2015

  When you attend fashion weeks there’s often a feeling of sifting through quite of bit of underwhelming clothing in search of that one collection which causes you to catch your breath.

Roksanda’s Organic Contemporary Swirl for AW’15

February 23, 2015

Roksanda is the class act that just keeps on giving. Ilincic manages to combine edginess with complete unadultered luxury and in this show, multi-coloured fur swathes, wraps and muffs were as big as the colours. Aubergine, pagan orange, electric blue and fuchsia. Pattern and texture rich, this was as close to wearing contemporary art as […]

February 22, 2015

*sigh* It appears that getting listed for a Topshop Unique show is harder than cracking the much bigger, much more lucrative houses and designer names that shower tickets on a lowly blogger.  It’s times like this that you start questioning your decision to part with plenty pounds sterling every year on multi outfits from the […]
