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. It’s now added other components to the collection, including blazers, knitwear and the most fetching of tam-o-shanters, as well as designs in wool crepe and houndstooth…

On a related note, I did some filming months ago for a new intelligent editorial platform called La Coterie which has now launched. I got together with Kay Montano from ThandieKay and Rosalind Jana from Clothes, Camera and Coffee to discuss the AW15 Le Kilt collection and all things contextual around kilts, punk and feminism. Le Kilt’s Sam McCoach makes a appearance too. You can watch HERE and below…

But I do the odd department store press day as they usually have the best exclusives. Here’s my favourite from Selfridges: Diana Vreeland fragrance.

Topshop X Shit Bloggers Wear

Topshop-Shit-Bloggers-Wear

Is this the first time illustration has been used in an etail context? To sell actual product? Probably not, but I love the idea. Especially when used by Topshop US in association with Shit Bloggers Wear. The high street retailer asked Cecilia Doan to illustrate its new season hero pieces based on her satirical Tumblr blog, Shit Bloggers Wear. Nice one whoever came up with this one…
