I’m a bit over jeans at the moment. I’ve got the ones I like, I can’t wear flares and I’m more interested in other types of denim. Like what Keji is doing with dark indigo kimono jackets, Chloe’s artist smocks and MIH Jeans’ romantic chambray. And then there are things that look like denim, but aren’t, such as Vivetta’s cotton shirt dress and Gucci’s piped silk shirt. Isn’t it the stuff of dreams?

Tracey Emin’s love letter to New York



What an amazing digital art exhibition! I’ve just discovered Tracey Emin’s ‘I Promise To Love You’ display, which runs in New York’s Times Square throughout February. A display of her neon artworks on Times Square’s billboards, it’s part of the “Midnight Moment”, a presentation of the Times Square Advertising Coalition (TSAC) and Times Square Arts. (more…)



Press preview: Tracey Emin at The Hayward Gallery



Here’s some friendly advice. if you’re planning on visiting Tracey Emin: Love Is What You Want at The Hayward, go twice. There’s a lot to take in, and none of it’s skippable, so either factor in a good three hours or split it into two visits. (more…)



My February wishlist:



This month I’m loving…
Chanel beige ballerina flats – to wear with the Gap boy-cut khakis I have in my mind but which don’t actually exist yet
Tracey Emin book – but maybe I should look at some of the books I’ve already got first
Loft apartment in converted factory – hmm dream on sweetie
Gold Le Sportsac tote (yes I do really need another bag…)
Old school denim jacket – time for a revival, no?
