The latest DIY Project from rag & bone has been revealed, and quelle surprise, it’s ruddy great. Since 2011, the lifestyle and fashion brand has recruited scores of hot models, plied them with bags of rag & bone/JEAN, dished out digital cameras and let them go on their merry way – the results of which … Continue reading

Picnics, Posies & Pachyderms

Cath Kidston SS14

Paladin of pretty prints, it comes as little surprise that Cath Kidston’s new season collection is quite delightful. I’ve never really taken much notice of ‘The Home of Modern Vintage’ in a sartorial capacity but upon viewing the SS14 look book, I’d be wise to revise this. From teapots to those classic spots, budgies, giraffes … Continue reading

The best of the London press days SS14

Forget the festive season, if you are anything to do with the fashion industry (like me, darhling) you’re already thinking of SS14, and indeed incurring the wrath of the press day. Making LFW look like a sprint, this marathon month has brought with it a fair few delights, some of which are as follows… Sophia … Continue reading

Kim Kardashian swimsuit selfie

So it seems that in modern society it has become perfectly acceptable to show off at any given moment. Instagram with its array of flattering filters has not only made everyone photographers, but self-portrait artists – cue the #selfie. A form of documentation, the selfie is purely a means of brandishing your beauty about the … Continue reading

Wayne’s World

Wayne Lawrence, Orchard Beach: The Bronx Riviera

I recently came across Brooklyn-based photographer Wayne Lawrence‘s work courtesy of my daily trawl of the Mail Online (I know, the shame), but lucky I did, because I think his work is pretty awesome. In his latest series and book, Orchard Beach: The Bronx Riviera, award-winning Lawrence documents the grim-yet-glamorous Orchard Beach, a man-made ‘retreat’ frequently referred … Continue reading

What About Hince?

Kate Moss and Johnny Depp

What with the Nineties revival we’re currently experiencing, Paul McCartney employing the pair, and them being wholly beautiful and positively delicious, everyone is rooting for a Kate Moss and Johnny Depp reunion. Poor Jamie Hince. Well, maybe not so poor Jamie Hince, I’m sure he doesn’t really give two shits about the media banging on … Continue reading

LBD Please

Zara Studio Dress with Zips

Okay, I’ll come clean, I am a little bit in love with Zara. And I am a lot in love with this dress. Unfortunately, I fear you may well need the body of this model to pull it off satisfactorily, and if you don’t already know – this is not something I possess. I hope … Continue reading

When High End Meets High Street

Zara floral dress

Making the inexpensive appear high end is typical of Zara, to my delight. But now the high street store has gone one step further, by bringing out a designer inspired dress – before the designer has even shown it. I spotted this super-chic creation on the rails a good few weeks back and today when … Continue reading
