Quote of the day

“The It Bag is a totally marketed bullshit crap. You make a bag, you put all the components in it that you think could work, you send it out to a couple of celebrities, you get the paparazzi to shoot just when they walk out of their house. You sell that to the cheap tabloids, and you say in a magazine that there’s a waiting list. And you run an ad campaign at the same time. I don’t believe that’s how you make something that’s lasting β€” that becomes iconic as a design.”
Bottega Veneta’s Tomas Maier

From the vaults: Jenny Howarth

Is this the picture that first piqued my interest in all things pretty-tomboy? Jenny Howarth, a big name on the 80s London modelling circuit, epitomises the low-maintenance, fresh-faced, androgynous look that I always go back to. (And however bad I know it is, there’s no denying she looks damn cool smoking a fag.)

Taylor Momsen for John Galliano

My secret frou-frou side is loving the branding of the new John Galliano Parlez-moi d’Amour fragrance, from the Ellen Von Unwerth photography and ad, to the bottle adorned with a wee postage stamp. I’d much rather have seen Georgia Jagger in the starring role rather than Taylor Momsen though. You?

Happy Holidays!

Wishing peace and fun times to all who pass this way. Enjoy the break!
