Petit Déjeuner – Hurry Up and Wait

What do mornings mean to you? That’s the roundabout question being asked by Petit Déjeuner, my new DRG film strand, which launches today! It’s a chance to stretch myself beyond the world of stills and dip a toe into the wonderful realms of moving image.

These video vignettes take their cues from morning routines, musings and motivations. You know, those first waking moments when you may be ruminating on your ambitions – hello Monday #lifegoals! – or if you’re anything like me, wishing you could slow your pace right down as you silence the snooze button for the 12th time…

Bo Jong Hurry Up and Wait

First in the series is Hurry Up And Wait, directed and photographed by my creative collaborator, Emma Miranda Moore. We took inspiration from our 18-year-old Dutch muse, Bo Jong, whose suitably go-getting spirit had her entering modelling at 14 and moving to London by eighteen. An adventurous self-starter, her weekend mornings are categorically not spent lingering in bed.

Bo might not be sure exactly where she’s heading but that doesn’t stop her wanting to get there fast. Although, as for most of us, she’s not immune to a distraction or two. While still in pyjamas (lovely linen-silk striped Carrier Company ones), Hanro vest and hand knitted socks, she’ll graze on tea and toast, maybe dipping into a book to ponder the eternal existentialist question – What Would Jean-Paul Sartre do?

Then it’s a quick change into her off duty wardrobe of Studio Nicholson trousers and Chloé engineer stripe shirt (or will it be Sonia Rykiel’s pie-crust collared denim?). Add an Isabel Marant bangle, Aurélie Bidermann mirrored ring and Shinola watch. Wait, is that the time? Best get going…

What’s your Saturday routine? Hurry up and get things done or take your own sweet time…?

Le Kilt and La Coterie

Le Kilt aw15

The AW15 Le Kilt collection is arriving in store (it’s new to Harvey Nichols this season – buy HERE), so now’s a good time to show the look book photos. Le Kilt has only been around for a few seasons but is slowly gaining attention for its handmade, off-kilter kilts. (more…)

Editorial shoot: Slip it to me

There’s a time and a place for logo-waistband cotton smalls… but this isn’t one of them. No, this is the time for sweet nothings, lace fripperies and sheer silk sets, preferably in neon-accented colours or playful floral prints. I scooped up a caseful of Agent Provocateur goodies for my latest Disneyrollergirl editorial shoot, with Chiara Romagnoli behind the lens. If you’re in the mood for bright smalls, I recommend the candy-coloured lace bras, lovely under sheer blouses or summer’s indispensible white boyfriend shirt.

The bodysuits are nothing short of fabulous, whether frilly and bohemian, or gamine in black ruffles. And should you be on the lookout for decadent nightwear-slash-loungewear, then I can highly recommend the signature satin pyjamas – beautifully cut and seductive as hell…

Mastered: Bloggers doing it for themselves

Mastered-disneyrollrgirl-how-to-work-with-brands

So I had a feeling 2014 was going to be a big year for blogging and I was right. Some of my blog buddies have achieved huge things this year, for starters, look how many fashion bloggers are writing books. Not e-books, but big printed things full of that weird stuff called paper. Susie Bubble is working on her second book (if you count Style Feed which she contributed to), while Sasha Wilkins/Liberty London Girl has just sent her convivial cookery book to print. (more…)
