I heard somewhere that what luxury brands actually make their money off isn’t their haute couture but really perfumes, makeup, accessories and general beauty products.
Peter Phillips created the above limited edition shade for Chanel for the runway show and it’s just been released in America. Lucky for me I was just passing by.
Monki is the best place to get anything to wear when you live in London - a Scandinavian store not yet available here! Which of course means that the nice apricot Tamara Tee piece above is mine now plus the striped Alissa t-shirt. All for the sum of 360 SEK!
Start the day with a spring in your step
The days of handbags are not over yet but statement something should be something else this spring and this year…
Blue flats from Zara basic
White lace dress from Jovonna
Black tights makes every top a dress (almost anyway)
No more gladiators, go moroccan
Everyone should have a canary coloured dress and a “star wars” belt like the new Mrs O
Highest heels ever in block colours
Grey nail varnish by night and beige by day (red somewhere in between)
Snakeskin shoes by Louboutin
H&M collection by Matthew Williamson
Absence makes the heart grow fonder!
Spring is back with a kick, finally. Get in the game with this Miu Miu python bag.
Rachel Bilson has several assets (I guess acting is included in that), others include being engaged to the hottest guy in Star Wars (can’t believe I just wrote that) and of course, her amazing figure. Body con dresses are surprisingly flattering, sculpturing at the right places and if made by Hervé Legér also a staple in one’s wardrobe - if you can afford one.
Here’s what Amy Larocca from The Times has to say about MJ’s fal ready-to-wear collection: “Diane von Furstenberg and Donna Karan weren’t the only designers feeling nostalgic this week. Marc Jacobs seemed to be longing for the Mudd Club, when shoulder pads were steroidal and hair product a way of life. “It’s my clubbing days!” the designer enthused.
His collection, which was shown to a third of the number of people he typically invites, called to mind Grace Jones, Blondie and the other icons of his nightclubbing youth. There were bright colours and pleated, stonewashed jeans (Z Cavaricci, anyone?), with high waists paired with shiny satin tops.
These are not clothes for the fashion-shy: they are strong and somewhat in-your-face and the hair - oh, the hair! - is sky-high and immobile. “We spent all weekend on that,” said an ecstatic Jacobs backstage after the show. He looked young, fresh and tanned. “God, I love New York! Everything is feeling creative again!””
What goes around comes around and in everything it sometimes seem like if you mix stuff together the end result will be hailed as new, original and creative. A lot of black and 90’s feel to this stuff but its cool and Alexander Wang is really a talanted new designer.
Black cats mean bad luck… and good PR
Friday the 13th. The most unlucky, scary and daunting day that could possibly pop up. Well, this wouldn’t be the 21st century unless we were trying to have fun on its expense AND make some money. Read about Mischief’s stunt in having specially trained black cats wandering the streets of London to launch the new game F.E.A.R. 2. This wouldn’t be the 21st century unless we banked on its historical bad luck and had some fun at the same time. Like it.
