STRAPPED

VPL bras.
Way Obsessed.

PICNIC

More of a liquid lunch I would say. A few hours spent lazing in the park with DanielaJen, Alexxsia and Jackie. I can’t wait to get some new sunglasses for the summer, completely obsessed with Jens, pictured several times here.
Also, isn’t Jackie’s new Jil Sander bag the bomb?

MAY+SASA

The new Larissa Hadjio accessory collection MAY+SASA was inspired by David Attenborough ‘Godfather of the Wilderness’. Larissa has created six underwater creatures constructed using leather and treated fish skin, as well as traditional Swiss zip technology.
In a market saturated with the clichés of femininity, the MAY+SASA collection entices you to buy something that fits your character rather than buying something that speaks for itself. 
The bags made up of an Oyster, Squid, Hammerhead Shark, Squid, Shrimp, Crab and Carp and made as almost a reverse origami using a special 3D technique. 
I really like the mood of the video, perfect choice of model and location. The bags hanging off the fishing line look so good! My favourite is definitely the Hammerhead Shark, or maybe the little clam purses.
You can buy these little wonders straight from the Larissa Hadjio website, but be quick as they are all limited edition.

ARNOLD CIRCUS

Wearing: Burberry trench coat, Karl Lagerfeld jacket, Topshop shirt, vintage blue suede shorts, Topshop socks, Next sandals, Topshop bag.
Walking through Arnold Circus last Sunday as the sun was going down, the light was bouncing off the windows opposite lighting up all the red bricks, making for a perfect photo op. This was also the first day the sun shone in London, meaning my legs were coming out no matter what. I’m still pretending it’s the height on summer now.
Thanks to Lexxi for taking the photos.

BREAKFAST WITH COACH

A couple of weeks ago Coach invited me along to their first UK store opening in Westfield shopping center for breakfast and a browse. I knew nothing about the American brand previous to my visit and after my fill of pancakes and milkshake I got down to business. One of the first things that struck me about Coach was their attention to detail; the various signature hardware, twisting bag straps, folded and textured leather, and even the tags inside the bags telling you the story behind the accessory, where it was made and what material was used. There is a real link to the craftsmanship, with vintage style pictures of the factory and the bag making process on the walls, even down to the lookbook with Coach bags throughout the decades.
They even have a bag exclusive to the Westfield shopping store that comes in red or white (and with super twisty bag strap). I have to say my personal preference lies with the classic black and brown bags that I found in the mens section. More of a vintage feel perhaps?
Coach plan on opening their second UK store on Bond St later this year. I’m told the Americans are planning on doing something huge. For example; throwing Coach goodies out of a helicopter over Hype Park! Now that I’d like to see.
