My first Frieze

Frieze-Shrigley

Note to self: next time you visit Frieze, allow a whole day, if not two. My half day allocation wasn’t nearly enough once I had factored in a one-hour talk by photographer Stephen Shore. Continue reading

The latest retailer to tap tastemakers’ own style to showcase its wares is Zara. On its site under ‘Pictures‘ is a Tumblr-style cascade of lovely lifestyle images featuring Yasmin Sewell, Cate Underwood, Caroline De Maigret and Sofia Sanchez Barrenechea. Plus street style shots from Roy Of The Street and Citizen Couture. Continue reading

Quiet please!

The style in Tommy Ton’s Style.com fashion month round up was shoutier than ever but I preferred the simpler looks. Denim, tailoring, trench coats and trainers. The updates are in the mix and the unselfconscious attitude…

Gap Styld.by: Laid Back Layers

Part two of my Gap outfit posts are up on the Styld.by micro site. This look is mostly about the denim biker but I think it’s the red Sexy Boyfriend cords that gives it a kick up the butt. Continue reading

Gap’s Styld.By site has evolved since the last time I wrote about it and even better, this time I’m on it! The site’s premise is non-models wearing Gap their way, styling it with their own clothes to showcases their signature style. I was asked to take part in the Back To Blue denim campaign, choosing a few Gap denim pieces and styling them in my lazy casual, tomboy way. The first installment is below and here. I’m wearing Gap’s indigo ‘sexy boyfriend’ jeans (I went up a size to make them extra loose) with my own ancient Helmut Lang sweatshirt, Agnes B tee, battered Church’s shoes and a Prada manbag.

Camera phones – the unsung heroes of London Fashion Week

So what did the smartphone companies do for London Fashion Week? Apple introduced its new iPhone 5s by working with Burberry Prorsum on social media coverage using its iSight camera.

Like this photo from the Burberry beauty booth for example:

 

Yep, that’s me being tweeted from backstage at Burberry – no biggie.

Meanwhile, Samsung sponsored the BFC press lounge and worked with Nicholas Kirkwood on an exclusive case for the Galaxy Note 3. Continue reading

H&M magazine: autumn 2013

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

H&M -magazine-COVER

The new autumn issues are out and not only are we gifted doorstop sized Vogues, but also the free zines from the high street. I have a four-page story in H&M magazine on the silhouette that I believe will define this decade. That is, the new body conscious silhouette that’s the opposite of clingy WAG frocks and all about confident anti-fit shapes…

Burberry, Adidas: How do you wear yours?

Art-of-The-Trench-Paris - 7

There’s no denying that everyday style has impacted luxury, high street and street wear brands alike in a big way. And especially in the way that a “we’re inclusive” brand message can be disseminated across all visual social platforms.

Burberry arguably kicked the whole thing off with its beautifully executed Art Of the Trench site (with over 22 million page views from fans in over 200 countries to date) and in varying ways, Jimmy Choo, Salvatore Ferragamo, Hermes, Armani and Amanda Wakeley have taken the personal style ball and run with it. But still, no-one does it better than Burberry. This week, its Art Of The Trench concept arrives at Printemps in Paris, complete with an in-store photo installation celebrating chic Parisians as well as a pop-up of exclusive Burberry product.

Ankle socks for every age

I found this great photo in National Geographic at the hairdressers (I go to Cuts in Dean St – v good if you want short hair). It reminded me that I’ve been planning a post on women in ankle socks and pumps. There are actually quite a few high profile fashion women who have made this their ‘look’ and I don’t think it looks infantile. In fact, I think it looks really cool and self assured. Take a look at Katie Grand, Lucinda Chambers, Consuelo Castiglioni, Carla Sozzani and Miuccia Prada…
