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 […]

When Harrods launch a whole new ramped up area in store, you know it’s going to be special. So, when the invitation to attend Harrods new 22,000 square foot Technology Dept launch popped into my email box, there was a definite buzz of anticipation.

Swarovski Collective announced for Autumn/Winter ’12 Collections

February 2, 2012

One of the reasons (apart from the bling) that I give Swarovski so much credence is that they constantly support the more outre designers (even if some are fairly established), backing them by funding and also allowing them to incorporate the unmistakable Swarovski crystallised pieces into their collections, showing truly one-offs, making them even more […]

Bored of the norm? Ultra luxe lingerie from Hanky Panky

May 11, 2011

I may have deplored the Madonna single of the same title, during her dodgy ‘Dick Tracy’ period.  (I mean, “Hanky Panky…nothing like a good spanky….” *rolls eyes*) but the exclusive, cult lingerie brand of the same name is producing ten unique, retro style bralettes and famous low-rise thongs, heavily embellished with sparkling Swarovski crystals and exclusively […]

Damaris Celebrates 10 years of Sexy, Sophisticated Lingerie

April 26, 2011

OK, I admit it.  I have a thing about posh pants.  If “sugar and spice and all things nice…” are what little girls are made of, then their grown up selves regale in the smooth seductiveness of silk, the pretty, feminine flounces, the bright colours, the lace, bows, ribbons and detailing…it’s what we aspire to wear, […]

AMAZING is an abused and over-used word nowadays, especially on the Internet where it is applied to almost anything of merit. We are not given to hyperbole at Chutzpah Towers; however it would be an understatement to say that Mary Katrantzou rocks our world. Open a newspaper, or listen to the BBC’s self-fulfilling prophet of […]
