Emma looked fabulous in a Galliano dress and her stunning De Roemer silver geisha bag.  Emma, best known for her beauty and being a girl about town is now stepping out with Jeremy Healey, Celebrity DJ and sometime Ibiza resident.  She is also, as well as her sister Timna, an extremely accomplished artist. It obviously runs in the family as they were in LA to support their mother Joanne Woollard who had been nominated for an Oscar for her work as a set designer on the Oscar winning film Gravity. What an accomplishment, 2 beautiful talented artist daughters AND an Oscar nomination! Congratulations to all and especially to Emma on her great taste in handbags!

Love the fuzzy, cosy quality of the clothes, they look extremely wearable yet sporty and elegant.  A tricky combo to pull off, bravo.  Designer Danielle Sherman backed by LVMH and funded by Bono and Ali Hewson managed well and reminded me a little of Phoebe Philo’s Celine.

COACH

Very excited by Coach, this their first season introducing a clothing line designed beautifully by Stuart Vevers who was at LVMH’s Loewe label.  He based his thinking on true Americana, wonderfully wearable, witty, leathery and superbly cut.  Great bags and even greater boots and shoes, can’t wait.

VICTORIA BECKHAM

Lovely clean lines, elegant and modern.  Exquisite tailoring and love the chunky gold chains on the divine coats and coat dresses.  Well done team Beckham and I am thinking that our lovey friend Susanne Tide-Frater might have had a good deal to do with concept and execution.  Well done.

PRABAL GURUNG

New to me but Gurung, a Nepalese designer, first appeared in 2009 with his first runway collection.  He studied in New Dehli at the National Institute of Fashion Technology and then in NY at Parsons. Now an American citizen he is most definitely on the map.  Loved his chunky deconstructed knits over chiffon and silk skirts that showed a fair amount of leg, cute. Gorgeous colour combinations and some very clever glam tailoring. Me likey.

We’re now ready and waiting for LFW!

Soneva Fushi in the Glorious Maldives

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on January 15, 2014 by deroemer

We were lucky enough to spend some of our Christmas holidays in the Maldives at the most amazing Soneva Fushi Resort, truly the most impressive hotel we have ever stayed at.  They follow a SLOW LIFE philosophy which permeates everywhere you look on the resort and they take environmental issues and responsibilities very seriously.  Something very close to our hearts at De Roemer.

“What fun”, the only form of transport on the island!

Whilst we were there we overlapped with some very interesting guests.   Justin was delighted to meet Buzz Aldrin, the second man on the moon and to dive on the beautiful coral reef with him more than once! Buzz at the grand age of 83 was diving twice a day! We were very impressed.

There was also a rather arty group of about 15, the ‘Gathering’ as they became known.  Artists, musicians, directors, creatives and actors.  Tilda Swinton and her man, artist, Sandro Kopp were amongst them along with Michael Stipe of REM fame, to name just 3.  All terribly nice and keen to make a difference to the world as a collective and as individuals.  Known voices can travel quite a distance so we hope that their influence can have some sort of impact on our environmental issues.

It was so lovely to spend time with Sonu and Eva, the visionaries and owners of Soneva.  They really are wonderful people and they care so much about everything and all the small details as well as being hugely loved by all their staff, family and friends.

My favourite spot in all the world!

What a truly beautiful island and how fabulous to be able to spend some time on it, we would like to go again and again and again….

London Fashion Week

Natural History MuseumSadly as usual we were disappointed with the tents at the Natural History Museum.  The atmosphere is great as you walk in but the uneven grey carpet supplied for the majority of the labels showing was drab and depressing.
…………………………………
Not so for the up and coming, the new generation, sponsored by Top Shop no less.  They had a great area upstairs with a lovely even, hardboard floor smelling of newly sawn wood.   It felt fresh, light and airy. Much more appealing to the visitors and exhibitors alike.

Mary KatrantzouMary Katrantzou really stood out with her architectural jewellery screen printed onto silk shifts and I loved Mark Fast’s signature, literally, his spider like name spelt out with cotton and pins on a felt board.
