‘Inspired by a recent exhibition of his photographs, we thought that you might enjoy a little reminder of some of the work by the great man himself, Norman Parkinson.

I am reading Grace Coddington’s biography at the moment, http://www.guardian.co.uk/books/2012/dec/09/grace-coddington-review-autobiography-memoir,  a lady of some substance within the fashion world.  She herself was a Parkinson model and has many fond memories of the work that they did together, initially as a model and subsequently as a Vogue stylist and creative director.  The book is a great insight into the small world of fashion and is especially enjoyable, when like myself, you have played some part in it!

We are following Parkinson’s photography with a modern master, David Sims by following a similar mood in colour, texture and shape, unsurprisingly the story shot by Sims is styled by the great lady herself Grace Coddington!’

Ski…Equestrian Style!!

Posted in De Roemer, De Roemer Social, Fashion News, Uncategorized with tags , , , , on April 22, 2013 by deroemer

It’s that time of year when a lot of us hit the slopes for some gorgeous mountain air and the thrill of swishing down the mountain at some speed with the wind in our faces, not too dissimilar to getting on a faithful steed!

 We thought that we would share a little fashion inspiration…Ski equestrian style!! It’s gotta be a good look, who could resist a good gallop!! A warm puffa, luxuriating in cashmere, a fierce beast, shiny shiny skis, helmets and all that globber, what a combination…Oh what thrills!!?

Thought that Alexander Wang was great for Balenciaga, rather better than his own line!

Dolce & Gabbana
Thought that the Dolce & Gabbana theme was wonderful, reminded me
of the old days at Crolla, perhaps not that wearable though!

Thought that L’Wren Scott stood out as a pretty cool designer!

Maiyet
Thought that Maiyet designed by Gabriella Zanzani, a conscious label trying to do good but without losing its profits, looked great this season.

So it’s the Golden Globes!!! For us it’s a preamble through the minds of the stars of screen and stage in the run up to the Oscars..and it sure does help to have some ball gown glamour to accent our chilly grey days here in little old London Town….

It’s that time again,

It might be cold and wintery here in London but fear not there is light, blue and fun just around the corner……. well maybe a plane ride away!

We thought that some winter sun & sea might cheer you and give you some ideas about what jewellery to wear

with those stunning bikini’s and beach wear… we just love a bit of winter sunshine…Hallelujah!

‘We would like to take this opportunity to congratulate the Obama’s on their successful campaign to be re-elected!!!  A lot of us are relieved that Barrack can serve a second term and be given the chance to implement and execute his more popular measures with care and consideration and with the same passion and verve that he shows us in his public speaking which is inspiring..

A nod to the style and grace of his beautiful wife…Michelle, CONGRATULATIONS Barrack Obama on all fronts!!
