While I wait for images of Saturdays presentation to come back, I just had to share with you these illustrations by Clym Evernden. Followed by the amazing moving GIF from Nordstrom’s blog. It was a really unique idea to stage a live lookbook shoot in the Beaumont hotel, guests arrived and could watch us shooting and prepping. Styled by Sebastian Kauffmann and shot by Yuvali Theis. Can’t wait to show you the new collection in full!
Spring/summer has finally dropped! Doing my best to upload the new collection whilst making the new one, but there are a few peices already on the site. Some very hubba-hubba white denim styles. Summer is just around the corner now! :)

Trust me to see a pair of spring/summer Marni sandals in the dead of winter, with snow still on the ground, and think Yup! I don’t see why though it’s acceptable to wear sandals on a fancy winter date and not a pair chic flat sandals. I’ve been collaborating with Amex style hub this month, with the launch of London Collections: Mens in January and now, just out is this ‘How to dress up on a winter date’. My way anyway ;)

Last week after a pretty insane feast at Sake No Hana, in St James (full post to come later on over the weekend) wearing a uniform of sorts… except for the skirt which was a brave decision on my part. The knowledge of a cab ride and sitting in a warm cosy Mayfair restaurant made me throw caution to the wind on that one. So excited for summer to come already, it’s been snowing in London this week and I can’t leave the house without a thousand layers on. This is me dreaming of what I’ll be wearing in two months time, shall we say?

The last Christmas lunch in London, celebrating the holidays ahead with #blycore before India and I snook off to shoot a lil something before the two week hiatus. Recent casual cravings have left me yearning for oversized linen shirts and split knee trousers, borrowing something from the boys etc. In fact I took a look at myself and the boyfriend today and realised we are both in white shirts, tailored trousers, trainers etc; but who came up with this look first I don’t recall. This is coming from the man who asks me to take selfies for him and who calls my homely tinsel ‘ratchet’. Follow me on twitter for more absurd of-the-moment boyfriend words of the day to come no doubt..
Focusing on the accessories is much more my thing of late. So many beautiful things to focus on, from so many designers I love. I’ve had my eye on this Kara stowaway for so long, the decisions between a stowaway and a backpack was very difficult, but I am obsessed. As well as Larsson & Jennings who are doing so well, hello new Soho store! Obsessed with this Saxon watch that I’m living in, currently coveting the all rose gold watch exclusive to Net-a-Porter.

Simplicity is always the best policy, especially when the tops have so much to say.
I recently discovered young up and coming designer JH.Zane and got the chance to play around with a few of his pieces in my studio last week. What started as one photo, quickly turned into a whole photo shoot. Summer needs to hurry up so I can actually wear this out on the street!
As I’m cosying up for the weekend, recovering from our work Christmas party on Thursday night and generally hiding from the cold, I feel myself dreaming of this recent press from Creem mag. Take me to the Devon beaches wrapped in cosy knits! Check out the editorial; so much winter inspo, it’s unreal.

The year’s gone by so fast, and here we are, the first of December! There’s such a feeling of holiday in the air already, Christmas trees lining the streets of Columbia Road yesterday for the weekly flower market, Maria blaring out on every available radio.. And here I am wrapped up to the nines in what I’ve practically been living in the last few months.
This knit from my AW14 collection (now currently on sale only until tonight!) has been a saviour when it comes to the cold. It’s actually the best thing I own! Added with the perfect thick wool coat and pony hair boots. – The only thing left to get cold are my knees, fashion over function etc!

I’m excited to introduce a travel segment to you, I’ve always been passionate about travel, exploring and documenting and have covered many countries here, on this humble blog O’ mine. I’m off to the Canary Islands in two weeks and I can’t wait to explore and suss out the best places to relay to you here and on gram of course.
Firstly though, I felt it was important to start with those countries closer to home. I’m in Paris twice a year, if not more (three times this year for mens as well as women’s fashion week), and it was this trip that I finally felt like I’d got the lay of the land; discovered great places to eat – read: great places to find a salad, and not just steak frites..
I know my way around the city pretty well by now, so I’ve created this map for any of you travelling out there and wanting to know my regular haunts, mostly food but some of my favourite stores too, such as Christoph Lemaire. I’ll add to it each season, or as soon as I find somewhere new that I NEED to share/ remember myself :)
Just a quick update with what I was wearing yesterday, leathers from my collection out now and voile Joseph shirt scored at the sample sale this week (the last day is today if you’re in London and free to go to The Music Rooms on South Molten lane), the usual Adidas sneakers on my person at all times and the perfect floor length coat, also from Charlie May AW14. Check out the new arrivals – the Eleven Everything x Charlie May knitwear, buy now as once it’s gone it’s gone :)
