Listening to this on replay and thinking of Ryan Gosling. If you haven't seen Drive yet, where have you been? Run out and buy a copy now. Beautifully directed and written with a rad soundtrack. I'm not ashamed to say I have watched it 6 times already. Totes lovin it. x
Pictures have been released for the much anticipated collaboration with H&M. Really looking forward to this one. They have come along way since their first with Stella McCartney. The images have been shot in the bohemian backgrounds of Marrakesh and photographed by the lovely Sofia Coppola.
Think patterns prints and earthy colours. I have my eye on a mustard patent top and silver rope sandals, also gorgeous blue polka dot blouse. Need to start saving now.
Marni for H&M launches in selected stores and online 8 March.
A quick shout about Zana Bayne, my new love. Arrived in the post a few weeks ago, all the way from New York. Handmade to my measurements. A beautiful crafted leather harness. I absolutely love it. Cant wait to wear it more. Perfect with bikinis and tee shirts and anything else. I want the whole collection. Love. Love. Love. x
Bikes where escorted down the runway at PPQ latest ready-to-wear collection. Does this mean they are cool again? Summer in the horizon maybe a perfect start to ride to work. Or at least find a uber cool one for Burning man. Yes kids I'm off to Burning man this year. I will no doubt mention this again. Back to PPQ, it was blacks, dark greens and a splash of check. It has grown up flirty femme fatal feel. Always a mesh of styles, PPQ gave a nod to the 50s and 80s. Bare those shoulder girls and strut your stuff. x
Swedes rain all. I've said it before and I'll say it again, Swedes rain all. Creative Director Jonny Johansson has done it again inspired by the body in art. Structured silhouettes with rich hues of deep reds, oranges, blues and greys. The return of lime jumper showed up re worked for winter. High neck lines and nipped waists with thick belts and over sized jackets give the models a box effect. Leather and plastic materials carried through as what is now becoming a staple for Acne. This trickled down to the shoes which as ever where quirky and quintessentially Swedish. Acne is going from strength to strength and picking up a cult following. Sit back and watch this space.. I only see good things coming from this brand. x
