Well, well, well, we meet again!


Deary me, my social (media) life has gone somewhat downhill of late! I am officially horrendous at keeping in touch with you my internet world…

I’ve had a tremendously busy couple of weeks (or months, I cant keep count anymore!). I actually thought the time was 9pm as I’ve only just sat down after getting in from work and putting the tea on – but infact it is 10:49pm – woe is me indeed!

I just thought I’d write a quick catch up blog before, well, bedtime really!

Basically, I’ve been working hard and playing harder! Theres been fancy dress, fireworks and actual FIRE… and some lovely flowers too. Man, it’s been ‘fabulous’ for more of a better ‘f’ word. AMAZING. Anywhoo, I would post some pic’s but I’m currently being selective with my face (and my friends faces for that matter) and the internet. Just because there are some unkind folk who would prefer to have an over active imagination and not think about getting caught in the act. LOLZ indeed. But this is by-they-by.

Lots of exciting fashionable stuff going on at work and home. I have lots of recent purchases to share and restaurants to critque!

But for now, I am off to bedfordshire for I am shattered!

Goodboo.

London Fashion Week Round-Up: DAY THREE.



London Fashion Week A/W 2009.

DAY THREE: Sunday 22nd February 2009.

Today saw designers such as Betty Jackson, Nicole Farhi, Christopher Kane, Richard Nicoll, Jaeger, PPQ, Twenty8Twelve and Aquascutum showcase their A/W collections…. Below are some of my highlights. Again, as you will see, the majority of designers are keeping their collections ‘safe’, to a minimal light (classic) colour palette, the direct response to the ‘dark’ cloud of the recession; the collections are wearable, during any season, and look forward to femininity.

Christopher Kane.

Christopher gives us a very sobre, dark, A/W collection. The majority of the collection is definitely eveningwear. Lots of sheer organza in a simple mix of creams, black and the odd stripey splash of metallic green/pink. A lovely timeless collection that endeavours to overcome the effects of the recession by cleverly keeping things classic, with Kane’s signature edge, perfect wardrobe staples!

Richard Nicoll.

Richard Nicoll looks fast forward to SPRING for his A/W 09 collection. The show focussed on creams, beige, blushed pink and grey for a sophisticated collection that, again, could be worn in any season. Romantic tops and blouses meet high waisted smart tailoring. The edge is brought back to forefront with ‘upside down’ dresses, as seen in the photo above.

I absolutely loved the Betty Jackson show. Very feminine, flattering shapes are cast throughout the collection, with particular emphasis on a cocoon style being added to skirts and trousers alike. The collection looks back at by gone era’s of the 50s with soft volume and a pastel palette, while the print and texture harps back at the 80s. With 25 years at LFW under her belt, Betty Jackson clearly just gets better and better with age.

Danielle Scutt, like Ann-Sofie Back, looks forward to Hallowe’en and to the Vampires and Ghouls that roam the universe for her Gothic Chic A/W collection. The collection highly focusses on black and red with the odd zebra stripe of white. Velvet and PVC mix with cotton Jersey for a truly haunting connoction. I really liked the T-Shirt dresses but the rest of the collection is a bit humour filled, proving to everyone that we must not be so serious about the Credit Crunch – AGAIN! I look forward to seeing her next TOPSHOP collaboration however.

London Fashion Week Round-up: DAY TWO.


London Fashion Week A/W 2009.

DAY TWO: Saturday 21st February 2009.

Today is the day I was looking forward to seeing… a few of my favourite designers were showcasing their A/W collections; including, Vivienne Westwood (especially!), Peter Jensen, UNIQUE by Topshop. What I am beginning to notice is the fact a lot of designers are playing their collections very ‘safe’. This is a direct result of the current economic climate; people are wanting to spend their money on much more hardwearing, simple pieces that will become wardrobe staples, rather than a one-off ‘party piece’.


Vivienne Westwood: RED LABEL.


-Daisy Lowe walks for Vivienne Westwood.

At first, I thought Vivienne Westwood had kept it a little too ‘safe’ with her Red Label A/W 09 collection; but after looking over at the photographs again, I absolutely LOVE it and cannot wait for it to hit stores. Theres lots of Viv’s signature textiles in there (tartan, harlequin, tweed, wool) and the signature shapes and forms. She hints back at the pirate era and heritage for this, very cosy, looking new collection. Daisy Lowe and Alice Dellal were amongst her wonderful models to walk the A/W 09 collection.

UNIQUE by Topshop.


UNIQUE looks to the future for their A/W collection. Not terribly sure how wearable this actually is; regardless of this, its definitely grabs your attention! The clothes are very art inspired with lots of decadent detail; I just cant wait to see the prices for this collection to be honest. A few hit and miss prints mixed with sequins and black dominates. The collection screams attitude, rave and technology as we’re faced with boiler suits, oversized hoods and quirky tailoring.

Margaret Howell.

Margaret Howell’s A/W collection has left me a little confused… although, indeed, it is a lovely simple collection, it is very ‘light’, in the sense, that I feel it looks alot more like a S/S collection. Lots of shorts and sleeveless garments, not terribly practical for winter! The staple of the collection is however, knee high socks, a rather playful and endearing addition to the collection I thought. Some really nice tailoring and lovely ‘cruise’ pieces. A really nice colour palette of greys, white, slate, light blue. Overall, I really enjoyed this collection, despite the lack of thought for the English Weather!


Ann-Sofie Back.

Ms AS. Back A/W 09 collection is just beautiful. Imagine a spell-binding mix between BeetleJuice (the film!), Hocus Pocus and The Nightmare Before Christmas, all juggled up with a Wedding and then thrown backwards through the darkest night. The models looked majestic with pale white faces and white stockinged legs. Feathers play a key focus to the collection as well as Hallows Eve. Oversized knits are emblazoned with BOO! and illustrations, while the more sophisticated end of the collection boasts high waisted carrot trousers and complicated sheer blouses. Ann-Sofie is definitely one to watch for 2009!
