Dior Resort ’17 – Meier & Ruffieux’s Statement Collection at Blenheim Palace

June 1, 2016

Design duo Lucie Meier and Serge Ruffieux at Dior seem to be doing a Vetements at Dior while hot-sitting at the helm. Which is to say, coming out with some new and much needed trend and proportion direction, as well as causing a degree of confusion. Layering it on, sometimes too much, gave the collection […]

Dior’s J’Adore Touche de Parfum

October 20, 2015

I’d forgotten how much I loved this fragrance. Its beautiful creamy dreamy soft subtlety with a slight glistening sheen that no amount of glamorous Charlize Theron legs in Dior perfume ads could ever properly convey. Dior’s J’Adore is probably one of modern fragrances most underrated in terms of sophistication, delivery and make-up. Perfumer-Creator, Francois Demachy […]

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 […]

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 […]

Dior launches Fève Délicieuse to La Collection Privée

May 4, 2015

Here’s the heads up. It’s a May Bank Holiday. And a rubbish one at that. Stuck in the wrong end of the UK, it’s an an election week where my country appears to be rammed with delusionistas, set for sailing itself down  a la-la-land river of dreams and making me long for the Left-Right divide […]

Galliano at Maison Margiela -The Shot in the Arm that Paris Needed.

March 7, 2015

Oh how we’ve missed you John Galliano. Like a shot of A grade drug to the arm, the first RTW Maison Margiela was all sorts of wonderful. Galliano deftly manages to simultaneously defy and entrance. Here, were the smacks in the face of genius that Paris has missed for so long. From his misplaced tainted […]

Givenchy’s Couture Fragrance – Néroli Originel

May 26, 2014

It’s a wonder that Givenchy didn’t enter this market sooner. Whereas we’ve had Chanel’s Les Exclusifs and Dior’s Collection Privee for some time, not to mention the beautiful superior exclusive offers from Guerlain such as the show-stoppingly gorgeous No. 68, Givenchy lagged behind in its niche and exclusive or as they term it, couture offer.

April 20, 2014

I’m being particularly kind to you this Easter Weekend, dear readers-of-the-over-stuffed-faces-with-chocolate. I thought it about time that I told you of the delectably indulgent and just teetering on the right side of sin release from Dior’s Privee Collection: Cuir Cannage. Cuir Cannage. Hmm. Just saying the name has me in a froth. It already has […]

DIORMANIA. Dior’s Glamorous New Beauty Boutique in Covent Garden

November 24, 2013

Popping along to the gorgeous new Dior store in Covent Garden for the first time the other week was quite a revelation. Firstly, and no-one can fail to notice this, it sits right slap bang next to the Chanel beauty store which has held pride of place prior to its Parisienne rival appearing. I did […]
