OBJECTS WITHOUT MEANING



Back to exploring an empty city on the bank holiday weekend. Liverpool St, usually flooded with suits, completely empty and deserted. Naturally taking advantage of the mass of concrete and glass.

Wearing the most perfect navy suede tee from Objects Without Meaning, one of my new favourites; their brand ethos, about garments as empty vessels, blank slates to be filled with experiences and emotions of daily life, couldn’t have me agreeing more. Minimalism for the win.

HUDSON X CHARLIE MAY


Featuring: Hudson x Charlie May brogues shot by Joseph Piper last LFW

If you guys are already subscribed to my newsletter you’ll already know this, but the Hudson Brogues are back in stock! Back by popular demand after selling out in just a week. The limited edition shoes are available to buy now, I won’t be putting in another order so this is your last chance! :) Perfect for summer and even more perfect to do some shopping this bank holiday from the comfort of your sofa. Have a great weekend!

Buy the Hudson x Charlie May brogues here.

MALONE SOULIERS


Wearing: Mango coat, Charlie May layered mesh top, Hudson jeans, Malone Souliers pumps, Givenchy Obsedia, Mirlo Jewellery.

From one end of the spectrum to the other; proving I can be a lady when I put my mind to it. Temporarily swapping kicks for pumps, and quite happy to pull myself out of the all too comfortable routine.

I recently discovered this brand, Malone Souliers, an unapologetically feminine new footwear label that believes high heels to be magicians, creating transformations all over the body (I can agree on this point – oh hey, skinnier looking legs!). Pairing these beauties with some of my favourite gold from MIRLO and a delicate layered mesh, silk georgette top from my current collection.

GOLDEN HOUR


Wearing: Charlie May blazer, Theyskens’ Theory knit, Zara trousers, Adidas shoes, Larsson & Jennings watch and Céline sunglasses

As soon as Spring sets in, I can’t seem to help to want to do the all white thing ALL the time. These new tortoiseshell sunglasses (my first pair I might add) adding the only colour to this outfit that should be bouncing off the suns beautiful rays during golden hour. If you saw my instagram yesterday you’d have noticed a new addition to this trainer family, the same pair in stripes. My attempt at bringing black in a bit more maybe.

PEARL EARRING



Probably the daintiest and more unnoticeable thing about my all white outfit would be the teeny tiny Stephen Einhorn pearl in my ear. I love it when you catch something about someone’s look that someone else wouldn’t have seen, the devils in the details and all. I’ve been wearing the white mesh baseball dress from my new collection pretty much non stop. I love layering it over trousers, which is perfect as it’s not that hot yet, and I’m a separates girl never the less. Super in love with my new matte black Larsson & Jennings chain metal, I never used to wear a watch and now here I am, although guiltily I confess, I still check the time on my iPhone..

PONY BOOTS


Wearing: Charlie May coat and trousers, Joseph shirt, Céline boots, Alexander Wang tote bag.

Pony on my feet and my collar, I am pretty calf hair obsessed at the moment, as my latest collection will tell you. Dropping by the incredible Malone Souliers breakfast yesterday on Albemarle Street, it felt like the perfect time to take a quick snap wearing some of the new collection. I feel cursed sometimes that just as the collection lands in stores, I’ve presented another one that I immediately want to wear instead. Why do I have to wait until August. Clearly I’m not anyway but these split knee trousers and navy coat will be added to my personal order list come September!

#POPSHOPPING


On my desk: Alexander Wang tote, Tom Dixon candle, Sketch by Clym, MIRLO jewellery and my new issue of POP.

Growing up in Devon the only magazine I would save up to buy would be POP; it’s been my favourite since  can remember. I remember the blogger collaboration they pioneered back in 2009, just a year after I had started my blog and was avidly reading other blogs online. It felt like a really exciting turning point that I was desperate to be involved in; so you can imagine how ridiculously excited I was to be approached by POP a few months back, to help pioneer the launch of their new online site The POP along with YOOX.

The new segment, coined #POPSHOPPING see’s bloggers styling their top picks from YOOX for the new Pop site, shooting on film using Fuji Films Instax. It was across digital platforms including Pinterest, newsletters and instagram, as well as appearing in the brand new issue of Pop magazine itself (squeel!). Thank you so much to Stephanie for making the whole experience a blast, and to POP and YOOX!

See my interview with Pop on Yoox and make sure you go out and buy the new issue!

 

BACKSTAGE AT CHARLIE MAY AW14


Backstage at Charlie May AW14 by Joseph Piper

Finally I get to show you these beautiful backstage pictures from my AW14 show! It’s always over so quickly, and such a whirlwind I can hardly remember, so looking back over these it the perfect little memory jog. I’m so happy with how the collection looks this season, I think it’s finally at where I really want it to be; the styling and model casting by the incredibly talented Nobuko Tannawa, the space inside the OXO tower on Southbank with so much natural light, and finally the collaborations with Gigi Burris millenary and Eleven Everything knitwear. So happy to have met you both you insane talents! To see the full runway looks go to Vogue.co.uk.

PARIS PHOTO DIARY


Paris photo diary from instagram.

How apt that the modern photo diary would be instagram exclusive. I would normally lug my Mark II around; but with a full 40 piece collection to lug, and rails, and personals, the camera had to stay behind on this trip, forgive me? We were in Paris for sales and I have to say it’s the first time I really loved the city. Hanging out with people that know it like the back of their hand really is an awesome thing.

To recap. Our beautiful balcony 7 floors above the Rue Saint Honoré, living walls, discovering Uncommon Matters, India repping AW14, white shoe game, Colette, the Yohji show, Nicholas Kirkwood pearl boots, Jennifer Fisher at the Valery Demure showroom, SS14 croc bombers, cut out 3.1 Phillip Lim tees, leather slides, sunsets with Clym, and of course the new collection.
