Raf and Fred...

Sometimes I wish I could wear menswear, especially when Raf Simons collabarates with Fred Perry to recreate a version of an outfit worn by Fred Perry in 1947. With shoes and everything!!! Love love.

More love...

While I'm on the here's something I like kind of train I might as well show you some lovely photosgraphs by Ryan Mcginley, I love the ethreal, dreamy quality he captures. Warning though he uses a lot of nudies.

"Fashion is at once both caterpillar and butterfly"....

I was just doing some research from my books and I came across this picture in my book of Chanel by the Metropolitan Museum of Art. I can't believe I had forgotten about it. So so beautiful that I had to share.

Chanel evening dress - 1937
My crappy scanner hasn't quite captured the same glitz of the stars as the book but you get the idea? Divine.

Au revoir....

After 3 years online boutique Brittique is closing down. Sad yeah, but chin up everything is on sale. Yes everything! Until the end of October!!! It hurts that I haven't been paid yet and I need to buy practical things like microsoft word when I would much rather be spending that money on lovely things. But if you have more money perhaps you would like to buy some cut price clobber.

Something fishy...

Modern mermaids listen up! Alexander McQueens S/S10 collection is delightfully fishy. Upgrade your scales with sequins and put fins in your hair. Land lovers can also marvel at the shoes, but to be honest I think I would have as much trouble wearing them as our aquatic, footless friends.

And this is by far my favourite, favourite look of the collection.

Look at the colours when the light hits it. Mmmmm. If I was a millionaire mermaid that would be my outfit in an instant. Apparantly the inspiration for this comes from the idea that humankind is made up of creatures that evolved from the sea, and we may be heading back to an underwater future as the ice cap dissolves. Oh well with outfits like this who would complain?

Go watch the show on


Saddle up cowboys and cowgirls theres a barndance in Paris. Oh no its just the Chanel show. A barn? Straw? Lilly Allen singing that song that sounds a bit country? Crazy? Yeah. Ace? Definately.
Oh and it wasn't a elaborate ploy to make everyone ooh and aah at the stage and ignore the clothes becasue they were pretty damn awesome as well. See.....

Not so sure about the clogs though.

The real world...

And here's how the real people wear orange proving that everyone can be bright!

Love the orange tree in the background as well!

The futures bright...

The colour of next summer? Orange. Oh well at least it makes a change from the ridiculously un-summery amount of black on the catwalks.

Jean Paul Gaultier, Nathan Jenden, Loewe, Tuleh, Lanvin

Smoke and mirrors?

How on earth have Viktor & Rolf managed this?
