I used a tote bag for the first time in months last week. Like practically everyone else, I’ve not commuted since March, so I’ve been getting by with pockets for my daily walkabout, or a compact J&M Davidson camera bag if I’m going further than the coffee shop at the end of my road.
But last week I went to meet up with a friend and needed a bigger bag for the mask-brolly-sweater gubbins I had to carry with me. (more…)
This longish read with Jane Birkin is content-meets-commmerce gold. She talks about her penchant for Agnes b silk tops, men’s V-neck cashmere jerseys (of course) and every trashy magazines she can get her hands on for the plane read. (more…)
Just sharing my favourite photos from Karl Lagerfeld’s Little Black Jacket exhibition, which opened at the Saatchi Gallery today (I went to the preview yesterday). I really didn’t have high hopes for this so I was shocked at how much I loved it. The casting is wonderful, as is Carine Roitfeld’s styling. Karl has truly managed to capture the style and personality of each of his sitters. And the gigantic prints (by Steidl) are nicely displayed, gently pinned to the wall. The exhibition is huge and you can even take away a free poster with you. So much nicer than flooding the shop with tacky merch, no?
The exhibition is on from now until 28th October and you can buy the accompanying book there too (it’s a lot cheaper than in the shops).
*SPOILER ALERT* Don’t look down if you don’t want to see (top to bottom) Ines de La Fressange, Frankie Rayder, Jane Birkin, Lauren Hutton, Linda Evangelista, Sojourner Morrell, Alexa Chung, Sofia Coppola, Sing Hye-Kyo, Kirsten Owen and Lily Donaldson… (more…)
