The smaller,the better..

Very happy with the leather shorts i picked up during the sale for just £15! Looks like they are going to hit the high-street big time in a couple of week as they where seen everywhere during the SS10 fashion weeks. From top: Top Shop Unique, Alexander Wang, Chloe,Balmain,Costume National and Hermes.

Valentino gets a touch of cool

Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pier Paolo Picciolis' third Couture show for Valentino in Paris last week was all a bit futuristic tribal meets draped chiffon dresses. With little of the label's traditional red dress along with some edgy styling it made for an interesting and visually beautiful, modern show. (..and yes,that is Alice Dellal)

Burberry AW10/11

Not a tie to be found in the Burberry AW10 collection shown in Milan last week, instead there where military style coats and boots, cool big knits (Siri Johansen, head of knitwear, never gets it wrong), 90s style denim shirts combined with skinny trousers and huge man-bags. For the full show, take a look here.

A collaboration between Beck and Charlotte Gainsbourg can't really go wrong in my books. Took me a couple of listens to get there but now I likes! Great video to.....Heaven can wait

Two Door Cinema Club

Enjoyed seeing Two Door Cinema Club play at the Madame JoJo last night. The three young gentlemen from Bangor (Northern Ireland) are very talented and sound great with their electronic beats and jaunty guitars. Two Door Cinema Club are signed to French label Kitsune and will be releasing their debut album next month.

Hip Hop Don't Stop!

I like my old school hip hop heroes and often use photos of the 80s style icons as fashion references on shoots. Back in the days by Jamel Shabazz is a great book for photography of early hip hop culture. Love the Sonic Editions website where you can find and purchase limited edition framed prints of some of the greatest Hip Hop and R&B artists. Worth checking out as quality is superb and prices start at only £59!
