Quote of the day


“I think digital is great; I think any advancement in photography is great. But when people ask me why I don’t want to know what I’m shooting, I say I like to treat it like Christmas – sometimes you get what you want and sometimes you don’t.”
Bruce Weber, A Blog Curated By

Joseph gets it right

Joseph’s AW10 collection is coat and jacket heaven. I’m absolutely feeling Joseph’s take on military – luxe and minimalist in a khaki/black/tan palette. My favourite pieces…

Suede curly-haired avaitor jacket

Khaki cape with tan piping

Khaki wool bomber jacket with detachable curly-hair collar

Khaki double-breasted blazer

Oxblood leather trench (beat that Burberry)

Two-tone edge-to-edge coat (I’m seeing shades of vintage Lang and Sander here)

And I loved the handknit jacquard sweater. Reminiscent of the famous 80s Joseph knits, it was a fitting tribute to Joseph founder, Joseph Ettedgui who passed away earlier this month.

Charity tees? No thanks

I’m not ashamed to say I’ve never met a charity T-shirt that I liked. Well actually, I lie, there was this Stella McCartney one for Comic Relief, on which she slapped a red nose on Herb Ritts’ already-iconic Madonna photo. But the rest, no thanks. So sue me.

Thankfully, Fashion Targets Breast Cancer has taken a different approach this year and hooked up with ten fashion retailers to each create a bespoke black and white piece. The money goes to Breakthrough Breast Cancer and you get an item that you like, that doesn’t have a wear-by date and is thus a moneymaker for charity and sustainable too. The range launches tomorrow so if any of these tickle your fancy, feel free to shop…

Now I’m curious, does anyone still wear their charity tees?
