a little french

I have just got back from holiday and picked up French Vogue at the airport, I though it was an incredible issue and managed to convince the boyfriend to translate it for me, so was actually able to read it! The editorial above photographed by Mert and Marcus and styled by Emmanuelle Alt I am in love with, the last image I plan to blow up and frame. Pure Art.


Heaven is a place on earth wit' you

Lana Del Rey: My new girl crush and total music obsession, the utterly captivating online phenomenon possesses one of the most beautifully haunting voices I have heard for some time. Her single 'Video Games' was the soundtrack to Christopher Kane's SS12 show and was soon dubbed the tune of LFW.




I love this emerging 'Cut Out' trend that has been hovering for the last few seasons, it so fun and young and if cut correctly can be extremely flattering. 




Boy of Desire

How Chanel can create a bag that is so authentically new and controversial to what we know as Chanel, but manages to retain even more of the Chanel DNA is beyond me. The new Boy Chanel is their latest, an androgynous shaped, no frills, tough hardware piece that for me is more me than I could have known. Inspired by Boy Capel, the great love of Coco's life, which, incidentally, explains why the new bag is called the Boy Chanel.

The design was influenced by the cartridge bag that was originally made for hunters and was carried by Madame Chanel herself, the Boy comes in three varying sizes and in practical, no-nonsense shades of red, black, grey, green and ivory.

I have already started the leg work on the boy, hopefully just in time for Christmas. In my dreams I think!


Paris create the fairytales

Garence Dore possibly got allocated some of the best seats in the house this season. Her photography is stunning and captures the elements of a fashion show you just can't get through style.com. Paris for me, has always been THE fashion week. I think this pictures justify my argument?
