As a girl born into a landscape where surfing is a way of life, this new collaboration from Alexander Wang and Hayden Shapes speaks to me beyond the fashion element of OMFG marble everythang! These boards are just downright SICK, and that’s not a word I use often.
These sandals have been turning up in editorials across the board, they’re so not my usual type of thing but worn with excessive fray and slouchy black, they have my attention.
Why is it that things I can’t stop thinking about often lie in the love or hate bracket? Givenchy, Acne and even Topshop have some strong fugly contenders right now too. What are we thinking, yay or nay?

No, it’s not a dream, you are visually laying your eyes upon the new flagship from the Row; as discovered through my girl Andy Heart via WWD. When I posted this last week there was some speculation if this was even real, the space looks so other-wordly to us we can’t even imagine. The space is reported to have been both Mark Kate and Ashley’s hairdressers before it became available. I dream about when I open my first store but I can’t imagine it ever having an open roof pool feature – only in LA! Which reminds me is on my list of top visits this year..

When I came across the new LN-CC SS14 web campaign, shot in a marble quarry in Carrara, Tuscany; it’s needless to say, my mind was blown. Possibly the most incredible backdrop of all time (and a little jealous it never crossed my mind first tbh)! I need to book the next flight out, that’s for sure..
I remembered these photos I shot of the London store at the end of last year, when AW was still on the shelves. The insanely beautiful London store space acts as an ever changing platform of creative ideas – you can see this perfectly through their Vimeo film; as you can see there’s even a club inside the space that resides on East London’s Shacklewell Lane, which is actually how I came to see the space for the first time. I’m proud to say that such an awesome boutique resides in my neighbourhood, and if you’re visiting London I’m telling you to make an appointment :) They’re closed at the moment until September but no worries if you’re not London bound or living as they’re online too.
Or the new silhouette, even. Easy going, wide legged calf reaching culottes (anyone would have called that a statement before but now it seems as cool and minimal as ever). I’m even seriously lusting after these Victoria Beckham slouch trousers, not to mention as soon as I saw those Calvin Klein raw chunky hem trousers, as seen above, on the runway, I knew I’d be hooked. Give me an uber lux disheveled raw coat and pants any day please.

It’s been a while since I posted an inspo post; most of my hopes and dreams appear on Pinterest or Tumblr these days, which is actually where I first caught a glimpse of this Céline detail from their latest AW14 collection, in the first place. On my recent pilgrimage to the new Mount Street store in London, I was in awe of just the level of technique, texture and work that goes into each and every piece. I know a hefty price tag comes with it (hello dream shirt at £900) but it’s worth every penny. For now though I’m happy to just take these beauties, thanks.

Everything I’m turning to for inspiration this holiday; plenty of layering, daring exposing of skin with wools, knits and plenty of flats and oversized silk shirts. I could go on but it’s a tale as old of time of course. Hope you’re enjoying the holidays, New Years is just around the corner and whilst I’m enjoying sitting here with my feet by the fire, there’s a new collection to make when I get back to the big smoke!
Photos gathered on Pinterest.
Daria has got to be my favourite model of all time. I don’t think it’s singularly down to the Céline campaigns that sealed her fate as my favourite, but doesn’t she resemble Philo herself a bit here? I should apologise for the lack of posts this past week, so much to handle with your own business, as well as squeezing in some very exciting projects right up until yesterday. Right now, I’m packing for home, managing to squeeze in christmas pressies around the mountain of shoes I’m trying to pack, whilst my boyfriend simultaneously removes them. No Stella’s for me this time!

I’ve been thinking A LOT about knitwear recently. Not just because the nights are getting colder and I’m up to my 18th sweater buy of the season, but because for AW14 I’m doing my first knitwear collaboration! There will be more on that later, but it has made me think about how we wear them, the purpose they serve, as well as the design. Featured knitwear in this editorial from all the big guns, Stella McCartney, Acne, Céline; the bigger the better, and all the better for being a bit revealing too.

As I’m planning my suitcase for my biannual runaway to Devon for new seasons inspiration trip, I’m asking myself, how it’s going to be possible to take all these oversized garments with me? I’m so into the new layering and knitwear and 10 sizes too big coats, but this doesn’t bode well for my trip. Maybe I just cocoon myself for the train.. we shall see. That first coat still has me dreaming about the more affordable Sandro version, I just need a cold snap to come in to push me over the edge into buying.
