L’Wren Scott 

We were interested to see what L’Wren Scott was up to as we loved her collection last season which we felt had really gained direction and confidence. Here are some pieces from S/S 14 which to us seems to be leaning more and more towards couture!!? Lovely…

Peter Pilotto

We also noticed that Peter Pilotto seems to fit nicely between Mary Katrantzou and Christopher Kane. Here are some of the looks that we picked out.

Christopher Kane 

Christopher Kane presented a huge collection with various themes running through it, here are some of the pieces that we loved, especially loving the heavy heavy shiny shiny satins this season, rich and luxurious but edgy.

Anya Hindmarch

We noticed that quite a few designers had created interesting showcases this season. We thought that Anya Hindmarch and co created a great presentation for her latest collection. Take a look!

NY Fashion Week Comes to a Close…

Marc Jacobs

Save the best till last!!  It might have been the last show and it doesn’t look at all like Spring/Summer! Rather dark and brooding and all Victorian lace and tassels, opulent but moody and kind of cute.  Me likey, especially against all the cleanness that most of the rest has offered!! Have a little look through at our selection….

Michael Kors

A very different look at Spring/Summer from Michael Kors, glamourous, clean and still quite a large tilt of the head to the 70’s.

Custo Barcelona

Quite a surprise from Spanish t-shirt company Custo!! Love all the pretty layered colours and playful summer mood….goooorgeous…

Maison Martin Margela

I have always had a soft spot for Margela, wearable modern classics and here is, as promised, another clean and witty collection.

HP Connected

Being part of HP’s Influencers Advisory Board has many advantages and one of them is getting to see some fantastic musicians perform small and intimate concerts, through HP’s collaboration with Universal Music ‘Connected Music’ is the strap line. This week had the De Roemer A team heading off to Fabric to see Iggy Azalea. Great night. We love HP and we are excited about De Roemer’s upcoming collaboration with them.

Cannes 4 2013

The HP Influencers Advisers Board

What a blast Cannes was this year! I feel incredibly privileged to be part of HP’s Influencers Advisors Board which has met at the Film Festival for the last two years for four days of brainstorming, tech smoozing, red carpeting and generally being spoiled by the giant that is HP.

Tony Hughes, Miggy Gibbs and Justin Packshaw

HP are one of the principle sponsors of the whole event so we get to have a very lucky insight into it all. All the glitz is great fun and we managed to see the showing of La Vie D’Adele, which went on to win the Palme d’Or – a truly extraordinary film for no other reason than the sublime and brave acting from the two leads which is quite breath-taking.

However for me, the icing on the cake, is hanging out, listening and learning from the other Board members, all of whom bring an amazing spin and insight to the technological table. What a bright, colourful and impressive lot they are.

Thank you to the gorgeous Melissa O’Malley for pulling it all together, to Page, Randall, Irv, Jean-Pierre for opening our eyes as to where this technological revolution is taking us and to the rest of the HP team for helping to make it an inspirational few days. Thanks also to the lovely Yasmin Mills for including me in more of the glamorous Film Festival craziness.

Watch this space as De Roemer is about to do something incredibly exciting with HP …….

‘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!’

We had a very civilised party which we co-hosted with Yasmin Mills, girl about town and all round beauty!  She came along with her gorgeous girls, Maddy and Laurie plus a number of their pretty girl friends.  Beautiful people came and went throughout the evening along with a few of our very own fabulous and extraordinarily beautiful friends.  We took a few pictures but not too many!!
