THE PHILO EFFECT



Despite some much debated Vogue Festival conversation (I didn’t actually get to see the Philo in conversation with Alexandra Shulman talk, but have been hearing all about it none the less), I still see Phoebe as an idol of sorts. A subtle transformation within myself that has lead me to replace heels for trainers, blazers for loose coats and.. bus for bike. I can’t really attune that last one to Phoebe, as it obviously makes more sense, but it was the Céline skater-vans, worn practically every day last summer biking into the studio; that lead me onto this flat fetish in the first place. Phoebe, classically of course always pictured in Nike Air Max’s, New Balance 620s or Stan Smiths.. personal style icon she is. 

I don’t know who started it anymore; Philo, this urban movement that has us all ditching heels for trainers (90′s take two) or, me simply growing up and realising practicality and comfort exudes the kind of confidence we all want, deep down. Anyway, welcome to my new uniform. Enough Philosophising (see what I did there!), jeez, I’m off to enjoy the rest of the weekend.

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!

WHITE OUT IN PARIS



Or East 17 tribute, in Paris, you decide. As much as I like to pull an all white look, this felt very boy-band-of-the-noughties era. Maybe it’s the addition of shiny new Adidas superstars, which I’ve been switching between with the Nike Air Force 1′s (as much as my stringent assistant claims they are the exact same thing, I disagree, they are totally different shoes!) Maybe even more different now they are covered in various stains from Paris nightlife :(. This quiet windy walled area was in Montparnasse, the more residential area of Paris. Whilst we were pulling our best editor-lost-in-suburbia looks, the streets were completely empty on a Sunday, unlike London.

THOSE PETROL SKATES

Wearing: Max Mara coat, COS knit, Joseph shirt, Acne leathers and beanie, Céline shoes, Alexander Wang tote, Kirstie Maclaren cuff, Larsson and Jennings watch.

Winter in London. Baring the cold with plenty of oversized knits and these chunky leather trousers from Acne that may well have been made from an entire cow. Feeling snug to say the least. The show is less than a week away! Furiously writing this in the studio as shoes from the show arrive and we are finishing off the final samples for the collection. Hair and make up testing tonight and casting later on this week. It’s that exciting time of the season again! Luckily brunch dates with this dude lead to a chilled start to yesterday before heading into work like it was mid week. London fashion week is nearly upon us!

O’2ND AT HARVEY NICHOLS



One of my favourite looks from my recent collaboration with Harvey Nichols and O’2ND. Oversized silks shirts and leather from head to toe is a match made. I was channeling my Spring/Summer vibe but it was pretty chilly! Roll on spring when legs can be freely out again, and these Céline’s can be more in ma life. Check out their site for more outfits and a get the look too.

TOUCH OF PINK


Wearing: COS coat, Acne bomber, Joseph shirt, MMM X H&M trousers, Alexander Wang shoes, Givenchy bag, Hip Hunters rings.

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! 

 

THE MID CALF SKIRT


Wearing: Joseph shirt, Zara skirt, Topshop Unique shoes, Mirlo V Necklace and ID Cuff, Maria Nilsdotter and Rachel Entwistle chains.

I’ve come to the conclusion that no awkward mid calf length skirt is flattering unless worn with some pretty high heels. When putting on any skirt of a similar length, at first I’d say it doesn’t suit me at all, but add some block powa’ heels (see previous example) and you’re good to go! I got quite an crazy response over these shoes on instagram, I’m sorry I didn’t post them sooner as they were on an insane mark down in the sale, and have now gone, all but one that is.

ALLEY CAT


Wearing: Joseph shirt, BLK DNM skirt, Chloe sandals, Dr Martens tote, Maria Nilsdotter bracelet.

Wearing two of my favourite pieces in the world at the moment; this perfect silk shirt and leather wrap skirt. Is there anything better than leather and silk paired together? I don’t think so; it’s a must even. It’s difficult to tear yourself away from favourite wardrobe choices, but I’ve banned myself from wearing the perfectly white shirt to the studio as it will undoubtedly get covered in pencil/pen/table varnish.. c’est la vie!

OPEN SEAMS


Wearing: Joseph shirt, Zara shorts, Céline shoes, Rachel Entwistle jewellery.

Sometimes it’s easy to get carried away with the staples you can’t live without. Maybe my biggest misdemeanor is the white shirt; silk/cotton/linen, it’s the easiest thing to throw on and feel pretty good in. This white silk shirt from Joseph is the newest addition to the team, with the most beautiful details from every view, I’m pretty stoked tbh.
