Dead Man's Bones

With Halloween on the way, you'll love this album. I'm quite taken by the haunted costumes of the children's choir!

Town is a men's magazine which launched the careers of influential photographers such as David Bailey, Terence Donavan and Don McCullin in the sixties. The art direction of this magazine (the covers in particular) are my new obsession.

Mcqueen - Finally!

Alexander McQueen's collection was wow. Thank goodness someone came along and blew spring/summer 2010 out of the water. The prints, shapes and overall flow of the collection was superb. Also highlighting the collaboration between hairstylist, Guido Palau and Chanel beauté Creative Director, Peter Phillips, which could be interpreted as a modern take on Queen Elizabeth I. With touches of Pre- Raphaelite inspired colour ways and shapes this season, we also saw McQueen's signature approach to corsetry and digital prints. I give this collection the thumbs up.

Back to Paris - Givenchy Spring 2010

Ricardo Tisci is someone I respect as a designer, but what's happened this season? I have two words for you – disposable trends. When you dissect this collection in theory it's filled with beautiful pieces, just too large an assortment of stories to dissect. Even so, the black and white stripes; white-on-white tailoring; tribal new-rave prints; draping and pointy hats all had appeal. Tisci gave the glossy's enough to keep their pages looking interesting this season I have no doubt. However, if the feat of a collection is holding one central story-line, Givenchy's rallied-up at least seven. This is more trends than you could poke a stick at in Top Shop probably!


Abolishing black studs and hard edge this season Marc Jacobs presented us with the celestial fairy.

Eye Spy at Dover Street

I took a trip down to Dover Street today. It's a great place to go and look at books and magazines for inspiration. There's also a handsome sales assistant that works near the book section who always turns a blind eye when I do a quick blackberry snap at their pages. Browsing the new ready-to-wear and seeing him in his perfectly styled outfits always makes the trip worthwhile. Here are some images taken from the books I looked at.

Dolce & Gabanna S/S 2010

Dolce & Gabanna sure went to Barcelona this season. Spanish bullfighter women; black, white and blood; floral bloomers and tango dresses; white lace teamed with black undergarments; Madonna ala Eva Peron inspired jewelry; red leopard-print; see thru dresses and the much loved tassle. I think they should rewrite the campaign all in latin this season!
