Editorial shoot: Bittersweet blues

I’ve wanted to shoot with Vanessa Jackman for yonks. We met on a funny bloggers’ trip to Paris a few years ago and generally catch up twice a year on the fashion week circuit where she shoots street style (her blog is shortlisted for a Bloglovin’ award – go vote!) and I research the shows.

Finally we carved some time this summer to shoot the charming and creative Claudia Gould, who epitomises the new breed of multi-pronged model with attitude. Our friends at MIH Jeans gave us the run of their West London showroom and a rail of AW14 samples. The Phoebe Slim is already something of a cult jean, while we all cooed over the men’s Jean Machine chunky navy sweater, one of those wear-anywhere-and-everywhere staples. I also loved the inky indigo raw-edged straight skirt, styled here with a Post-It pink bra from & Other Stories.

The theme for the shoot was loosely denim-based. We wanted to evoke a laid back but bittersweet mood that expresses the melancholy of late summer-early autumn. So I added to the mix Rejina Pyo’s ruched red skirt, Dusan’s luxurious poncho and a double-layered jacket from 3.1 Phillip Lim, all newly arrived at The Shop At Bluebird.

Feelgood fashion? Oh MyGoodness!

Mygoodness-Uniform-wares

Here’s something a little different for Cyber Monday. If you want to join in the excitement, boost the economy, and give back, then why not do your shopping at MyGoodness.com? It’s the latest in social enterprise and means you can scratch the shopping itch while giving something back.

How it works is that for everything you buy, either the brand or the MyGoodness team will donate a percentage of the price to a cause or charity that they currently support. ‘Philanthropic retail’ (think TOMS and Gandys Flipflops) is becoming more common, but it helps that what MyGoodness stocks on the site is an edit of really well chosen products (including fashion, beauty, home, tech and books).

To add another twist, MyGoodness also sells ‘Money can’t buy experiences’ which translates as things like meeting a favourite artist backstage or having dinner with a superstar chef.

On the site right now, you can buy this Clarisonic Plus, this 3.1 Phillip Lim ’31 Minute’ clutch and this Uniform Wares 200 Series Calendar watch (above), all with 10% of the price going to Chickenshed, the children’s threatre charity. Interested? Click here more feelgood fashion from MyGoodness.

 

Brompton Cross: the revival

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

J Crew-Brompton-Cross-2

All of a sudden, Brompton Cross is back on my radar. The Conran Shop is flourishing again (seriously, you can do all your holiday shopping there in one mammoth swoop), Joseph is getting better and better and there’s an influx of international fashion arriving.

Acne and Jil Sander Navy appeared rather quietly not long ago, J Crew’s upper-end collections have recently arrived in Draycott Avenue (somewhat overshadowed by the pizzazz of Regent Street) and Carven opened the same week. Continue reading

Oh! How shall I wear my coat?

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

The start of London Fashion Week is my cue to think about coats. It’s historically when the weather turns from mild to treacherous, and of course, when the fashion set gets layered up for their street style close-up. The question is not which coat to wear, but how to wear it. I predict we’ll be seeing one of the big three: Continue reading
