Finally I can unveil the SS14 campaign! It ran as an exclusive on Tank Magazine’s Because on Friday, huge thank you to those guys for all the ongoing support. So happy with it, as you can tell, what a dream team to work with and how drop dead incredible is Zoe Huxford?!
The Spring/Summer collection will be landing in stores and online in two weeks at the beginning of Feb, including the limited edition Charlie May x Hudson shoes collaboration, can’t wait!

Testing out the resilience of my legs by doubling up on the top half, and it actually worked out ok, although I do have a floor length coat on my side, which acts as a kind of force field to keep the cold out. Science. Brunching with Shini yesterday at our favourite spot in Dalston, if you haven’t checked out her post yet (which pretty much chronicles our best brunches of 2013) you should do it now, although beware the hunger pangs…

I tend to think of wearing all black as a guilty pleasure, so easy to throw on anything and leave it to the texture to do the talking. This has been my favourite look as of late, just chop and change the accessories. I never thought myself a skater skirt type, but after discovering this shape looks so perfect under any/all chunky jumpers, I was convinced.
This Neil Barrett calf hair beauty has possibly been my favourite buys of the season, after falling hard for it in Malta (after seeing friend Anna of Completed Works in the same) it consumed me and I “had to have it”, even attempting to get it shipped to Malta – who knew that most shopping sites don’t even ship there… So I sat on my hands until we were back on home turf. Finally rewarded and it is possibly the perfect sweater, neoprene like arms and soft hair, turns any drab black outfit into something great.
Eeeek, excuse me whilst I go awoll for a while. As if the holidays weren’t enough, now coming back I haven’t been finding time to blog either. Usually my head is glued to a laptop 24/7, but an excessive work scedule on the run up to LFW next month has me pretty tied up. Yesterday I was so drained I found myself glued to the sofa watching back to back Revenge on Love Film ALL day. Today I am heading into work to make up for so much laziness which again leaves little time for this. I guess I could say, see me on instagram for more accurate life portrayal, although you won’t find any pictures of the sofa slug on there so maybe not entirely accurate.
First post of the new year and it’s a little something I was wearing a lot over the holidays. I never got on board with the pink coat trend, but something about this sickly sweet bomber caught my affections. Worn with an overly long Joseph silk shirt and trusty old wardrobe favourite, Wang pumps.
Kick off of London Collections: Men today and I’m starting to get super busy in the studio with AW14, with fashion month fast approaching, January is setting up the new year real nice. The SS14 campaign launches this week, excited to share with you what I’ve been working on!
When is inappropriate footwear appropriate? I deem it to be so when you have a floor length cashmere coat to keep you warm, an extra jumper will help too. Mixed reactions on these babies but I can assure you, my toes are as happy as I am. Heading back to London today in time for new years. I think I’ve pretty much exhausted my outfits from the suitcase I brought down two weeks ago. Looking forward to being reunited with my wardrobe, a full speed internet connection and an empty fridge. So much overindulging when I’m at home; a bottomless wine glass and chocolate box in front of the TV and I’m officially ready to start working out again.
New Years Eve tomorrow! Thank you to those who joined the party in 2013, and an extra big hug to those who have been with me all along. I don’t want to get too sentimental but what an awesome year it’s been! Already so much in store for January that I seriously can’t wait to share. Wishing you all a Happy New Years!
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!

Wahoo the winter sales are here! And not just the big guns like NAP or Selfridges, but my own too! So if you’ve been waiting on that special leather jacket or seasonally appropriate trousers, then look no further. My favourites include, the perfect stretch leather pants and ostrich biker jacket. Happy shopping!
Wearing full grey has perhaps been my new obsession, with grey purchases far outweighing the usual black or white. These two are my favourites, although I wish the knit was the exact same colour as the wool skirt; I have been wearing them both on most days, as my instagram indicates. Why can’t all garments be the perfect, raw cut precision as this?
New seasonally inappropriate footwear is in; as the spring/summer collection are already landing in store, I was immediately drawn to these slider-esque sandals from Isabel Marant. The first Marant purchase I’ve ever made, I feel like these perfectly bridge the gap between boho Birkenstocks and high fashion Céline fur adorned sandals or patent minimalism, even though I have to admit I thought these were Céline at first. Already wearing them with heavy overcoats and as many layers as possible.
