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…?

JW Anderson spoon pendants

It’s a bit cloudy today so I’m doing a new-in autumn shopping round-up. Starting with these stunning J.W. Anderson spoon pendants (above). These have just gone into Selfridges and J-W-Anderson.com – How delicious do they look? Also piquing my interest are the shoes and loafers from Dries Van Noten and Paul Smith, which I would wear with grey wool socks and my cropped tailored Joseph trousers.

Knitwear is a bit of a fetish of mine and the best bits tend to get snapped up fast. I love the school uniform colours of the Valentino sweater and the Marni mustard ombre menswear knit. Either would be a nice partner to the Dolce & Gabbana sheer tie neck blouse. Finally, you can’t go wrong with a camel coat – this one from Isabel Marant is relatively affordable at £620…

Isabel Marant track pants

Back in the day it was a sin to be seen in what we called ‘Adidas two stripe’. Trainers, trackpants, socks – anything that alluded to Adidas or Nike but was procured from Woolworths, M&S, British Homes Stores, or anywhere else not an official Nike/Adidas/insert name of ‘designer’ sports brand here outlet was the biggest fashion crime of all.

Fast forward several decades and how things have changed. Trust Isabel Marant to jump on the ‘athleisure’ trend with this faithful homage to Adidas (more…)

Bam! Nothing for ages, then all the sales start at once! Net-a-Porter, Matchesfashion, Liberty, Selfridges and Harvey Nichols all started their sales last week. I’ll be cherry picking my way through but to start with, here’s a quick pick of my current highlights. There’s a ton of Miu Miu and Isabel Marant on sale at Net-a-Porter but be warned, those sizes will go fast (there’s currently only one of these Miu Miu skirts left).

If you’re not over Rockstuds, Valentino’s leopard-spot flats are a bit different and now selling at 30% off at Matchesfashion. That Marc Jacobs ‘Coke-ribbon’ sweatshirt? It’s still kicking around and is 40% off at Net-a-Porter – yours for £720 (but there’s only one size left). And if you’re a lover of McQueen handbags, this red skull-padlock beauty can be yours for £470.01 at Liberty with 30% off. Shop the edit below…
