Kenzo's Nomadic 40th Anniversary

I do realise that this post is a little late, as it's from Paris SS11 Fashion Week, BUT, I thought these clothes were far too great to ignore! Kenzo celebrated 40 years of their existence with the most spectacular finale leading on from the SS11 show. These heavily costumed doll like figures marched out and stood on a huge revolving circular platform. I love their whole look - I find the layered-up, eclectic, prints, nomadic-like outfits so inspiring, timeless, colourful and beautiful. This worldly look has influenced so many designers, from Comme to Westwood, but this catwalk has really made me look at Kenzo in a new light. I wish they'd give us more like this every season! So good!

I have literally just arrived off the plane.Been on holiday for duex weeks, and been looking at shows on on my phone, by the way when are they gna get a blog app for iphone???I really like alot of the Topshop Unique collection, although it reminds me of alot of some other designers all fused into one!I LOVE the sunglasses in the first photo and the general firey colours, and patterns. The bright yellow tassled bag is cute, and the tassled shoes. I like the juxtaposition of strong prints against soft, floaty materials, I'd love lots of this collection in my wardrobe next Summer!Bx

'Every Shoe Tells a Story'

I am posting alongside the 'Clarks:Every Shoe tells a story' Campaign.You can add your very own story the their facebook page with the chance to win a prize each day. The overall winner will recieve 3,000 pounds worth of Trailfinders vouchers!! Being a bit of a shoe addict I have many pairs. But a girl always has her very faves... Be it heels or flats, stilettos or wedges, there is the right pair for each specific occasion. I think as a girl Clarks were definitely my favourite shoes,I loved being taken to get some navy blue mary-janes. I think desert boots are a classic and therefore timeless.I recently bought these turquoise platform sandals from Office, and I'm really loving them at the moment.
Although I'm a westwood pirate-boot girl, and love my converse when i'm feeling lazy, I think my all-time favourites are my Dr.Martens. I started off with a pair of black leather boots when i was about 16, i asked my mum to take me to the shop in Covent Garden, that's when I got hooked!But now, i'm in love with the low-top shoes. The story of these shoes are..I went to the factory shop in Northampton, and liked the fact that they were made in England, instead of production being taken to eastern Europe or further. The thing with these shoes is they will last my life-time, if not my childrens. I can wear them with everything, they are a classic.When the craze for Dr.Martens came back recently people were buying them from vintage shops, second-hand. So god only knows what stories they entail!The best thing is they get better with age too, and become molded to the shape of your feet.I'm sure they will hold a lot of memories for me when I reminisce about them in years to come!

_Chloe Sevigny in Mr Nice

I recently found out Howard Marks' autobiography Mr Nice is being made into a film, it's coming out 8th October and features Chloe Sevigny! i havent seen her act in ages, if she's as good as she is in Kids, then it'll be a winner! bx

_Stam Rocks!

Following in line with my recent punk -> rock -> grunge thing, i found these two photos of Jessica Stam. It's cool seeing a different side to her, it reminds me of an early Chloe Sevigny, the 90's NYC look as opposed to looks wise. So simple but capturing a part of her youth. Love it! bx

_This is England 86'

C'mon, who's excited..?! I seriously can't wait for this to be screened! The series starts on 7th September and I think it either has 3 or 4 parts. That's me sorted! bx

_Jumanji in the Attic

I love this shoot! It reminds me of the film Jumanji, where they're up in that crazy attic! I love the mix of b&w and colour and the use of crude strip lighting. The use of animal prints surely makes this highly linked to the film, right? The patterns and textures really stand out when it's monochrome, so bold. The models are Egle Tvirbutaite and Annemarie van Dijk and it's been photographed by Phil Poynter for Vogue Italia. bx
