Getting my Yayoi Kusama on

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

When will we get to see the fruits of the Yayoi Kusama and Louis Vuitton collaboration (which promises to be bigger than the Sprouse collab)?

SS12 trend report: Harvey Nichols gets Kirchhoffed

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl


I’ve been on a bit of a press days sabbatical this season. PRs have not only spread SS12 press days across October, November and December (back in the day, it was just October), but generally had more events and launches than ever before. I guess competition for press and bloggers’ attention is fiercer than ever but it’s had the opposite effect; instead of ramping up my attendance and coverage, I’ve bailed out altogether.
