Salvatore Ferragamo’s A/W’12 Advertising featuring Kate Moss

June 28, 2012

Kate Moss may be on her 30th Vogue cover and have transformed from waif to Boho vintage style icon to married rockstar’s sophisticate wife but she’s still one of the few model stars with enough credibility and authenticity to straddle both Rimmel and Salvatore Ferragamo campaigns simultaneously. Ferragamo has always been the byword for Italian […]

Back to Basics at Matthew Miller for S/S’13

June 28, 2012

Following the previous explosion of pattern and colour, Matthew Miller has taken a ‘Back to Basics’ approach to his Spring/Summer 2013 menswear collection. Tailoring is tighter, the palette is stripped back to an almost totally monochromatic minimum, and the militia aesthetic of last season has been dialled down a few notches.

Crafty & Youthful English Folk Traditions at Christopher Shannon for S/S’13

June 26, 2012

I have a bit of a love/hate thing for Chris Shannon. Whilst I loved his panelled festival gear, I hated the ruffled trackie bottoms (as it turns out, so did he), but it was his coming A/W 2012 collection which really turned my head, the prints reminding me of the rampant logoism in the late […]

June 25, 2012

Lacoste is suddenly cool again. Le crocodile bien connu is rearing its snapping little jaws all over the fashion scene and with a brand new pop-up store on the famous Knightsbridge Brompton Road and Knightsbridge Green triangle (dahling), I tripped along to the launch last week where the store hosted a rocking evening of cocktails, […]

June 25, 2012

Just before London Collections Men last week, I panicked slightly. Here was London’s first international Mens’ Fashion Week (titled the clunky LCM rather than LFW-Men) and there was Ms Chutzpah with hair that was shockingly in need of care and attention.

June 24, 2012

He can do no wrong in my book. Since Riccardo Tisci took over the helm at Givenchy, the house’s radical change in direction to multo chic, slick, modernist urban has made me salivate at every single collection. These are the clothes I want to wear: the sarouel cut of trousers with dropped crotch and skinny […]
