Peter Pilotto AW10/11

Peter Pilotto and his partner in crime Christopher De Vos moved from cocktail to tailoring this season showing amazing 70s inspired pieces. All though the collection was inspired by the era of brown and orange pallets it felt refreshing and modern.

Weird and wonderful from Kirkwood

The London based designer has done catwalk collaborations with no less then 7 exiting different designers this season! Preen, Roksanda Ilincic, Rodart and Louise Gray are some of them. Nicholas Kirkwood is definitely one to watch on the shoe front.

Live from Burberry

First show to be globally live-streamed, and in 3-D! Christopher Bailey and Burberry nailed down everything from a creativity, brand awareness to communication and selling. (pre-ordering was available instantaneously on the Burberry Web site) Love the aviator style jackets and the buckled boots.

Glamorouse 70's revival at Clements Ribeiro

Suzanne Clements and Inacio Ribeiro showed true glamour at their AW10/11 exhibition at Somerset House yesterday. Luxury and richness is definitive keywords for this collection. Check out the embellished shoes!

Richard Nicoll

Beautiful blue, light gray and terracotta colored garments in satin, chiffon and velvet cleverly styled with sliver Swarovski crystals embellished bulldog-clips mixed up with cool t-shirts showing collage prints by artist Linder Sterling. As ever Richard Nicoll delivers chic.

Betty Jackson

Just after 9.00am this morning Betty Jackson showed off her AW10 collection in front of a fashion packed audience including Erin O'Connor,Hillary Alexander and Zandra Rhodes at Somerset House. Cord harem pants, clog boots with tassels and over sized leather bags were just some of the items on the menu. Loved the floral harem style jumpsuit but can't say the same about the slinky gold dresses..I'm sorry Ms Jackson-I am for real

Acne strikes gold

Another great collection from Acne! This time Jonny Johansson got his inspiration from The Clone Wars .. a sci-fi cartoon for kids. Love the drapey jumpsuits and the grunge-luxe jackets. Extra points for replacing wool with fur!

Norwegian design goodies

When Norwegian design is good, it's often very good. Take for instance these hand finished leather shoes designed by T-Michael, this gorgeous Olss√łn Barberi bag from design duo Henrik Olsson and Erika Barbier and last but not least this stylish yet highly protective raincoat from Norwegian rain. Also, check out Norvegienne for some French/Norwegian inspired design.

VOGUE PARIS

Great story featuring a spring preview of the biggest designer labels in Parisian Vogue this month. photo by Inez van Lamsweerde & Vinoodh Matadin.

cloged up

I am not a big clog fan, but quite like this pair from Chanel..Alexa Chung is wearing them on the front cover of Vogue's March issue and (surprise,surprise) looks her usual casual cool. If you're not on the Chanel waiting list Kurt Geiger have done some great clogs that will be in store soon.
