Gossip just in:

This just in from last night’s Diesel/Showstudio/Hywel Davies book bash held at Diesel’s zhuzhy showroom in Kings Cross:

All the display copies of Hywel Davies’ book ‘100 New Fashion Designers’ which had been artfully placed on Grecian style plinths were pinched throughout the night proving that £20 is still too steep for the majority of fashion folk (mind you, who sells a book at a book launch?). One uncouth guest even bothered to clip the crystal from the showroom chandelier. How classy. Another partygoer was seen trying to squeeze a floor light into a too-small carrier bag while two guests were caught rummaging backstage trying to get their hands on a pair of Diesel’s limited edition “Dirty Thirty jeans” (to be launched for one day only on 10th October) and had to be promptly removed from the venue by security. How very shabby.

Pre-B Store show chit-chat

While hobnobbing with Topman design director, the dashing Gordon Richardson I managed to glean the following:

*The Antony Price/Topman collab is set to land in November!

*Price has built a mannequin to the exact size of the Topman house model (or ‘lad’ as Richardson called him)!

*The collection is based on the Roxy music track ‘Remake Remodel’!

*The coats are especially worth waiting for!

*The collections starts at a size 36 – or maybe a 34!

*They’re working on spring-summer now…it’s inspired by Duran Duran’s Rio video!

[PS: I’ve been promised an exclusive Antony Price interview – watch this space…]
