So I've been away. For far too long. As a few of you may have noticed my domain has changed as a man from Denmark unexpectedly took my domain name (google gave me no warning to tell me it was expired) and then demanded $500 dollars for me to have it back. The combination of this upsetting event combined with a incredibly busy new career had made me neglect my blog.
So I have decided to begin blogging today as there is no time like the present. Sorry to anyone has has wondered where I have gone - or stopped following. Excitingly as a result of the blog theft I have decided to start a new blog next month... so watch this space. For now here are some images of an average outfit combination yesterday...
I’m not sure whether it’s down to its wearability, its relevance or its status but somehow Topshop ALWAYS draws the in crowd at fashion week. This year their SS11 collection was no exception. The venue alone caused quite a stir – held in the ex Eurostar tunnel in Waterloo, the glass tunnel gave the fashion crowd a welcomed opportunity to sit and observe the collection in perfect sun glass sync.
As usual the FROW (front row) was full of the fash pack, including a pristine Olivia Palermo, a grungy Pixie Geldof and a glowing Lily Allen – all keen to see what the trend setting shop would dictate for our SS11 wardrobes. Warm Autumnal colours streamed through the collection, and a 70’s vibe dominated. Think afro’s, think platforms and lots of decadent glamour.
The collection was daring, vibrant and sure to make the 70’s big news next season. So if Phillip Green is to be trusted then the other side of this blustery season keep your eyes peeled for metallic bikini’s, tye dye dresses and maxi style skirts. Amaze.
When I think of my childhood, one of the earliest memories I recall involved walking through Richmond Park on an crisp September morning.
Every year as the winter began to draw in and the summer phased out, my father made it a ritual to take me to Richmond Park to watch the seasons change.
I suppose this factor is partially responsible for my love of Autumn. But then I grew up and discovered Clothes. COATS, gloves, thick wooley jumpers, Jeans, boots and LAYERS lots and lots of layers. For me it didn’t get much better than this.
So although Summer I love you heres to an Autumnal breeze, cosy nights and most importantly a fail proof Shearling Aviator Jacket – I intend to bask in your clothing glory.
Last weekend was one of sun and cultured fun. You see here in Brixton and Herne Hill we had Art, and the Lambeth fair - a reggae music fun type thing which has stayed authentic to its roots for more than a decade. With a handful of homemade cupcakes, treacle tart and a pot of cider we whiled away the afternoon. Amazing.
Here are some images of the fair and of the live graffiti which was taking part on my road. Join me next year - it was a blast.
I LOVE new things. So if you have a collection that you're just bursting to talk about please do email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with some pictures and a press release. If I truly heart it, I'll be only too happy to write about it.
