BACK TO THE CHUNKY KNIT



So, with the colder wetter days rolling into London, it’s on all our minds. Autumn is here. When I think about it though, Autumn is my favourite season; chunky knits, leather trousers, and with the weather still bearable enough to pull off slides and no coat. Crisper, colder days but with blaring sunshine, sunglasses are also still appropriate. The only thing is the temperamental element, when cycling to meet Shini yesterday I got caught mid-Dalston in a heaving downpour. We grabbed lunch and before you knew it, it was back to what you see here! I can handle that.

Feeling the need to introduce a bit of mild colour (you know that navy was heavily on my mind for Charlie May AW14) I’ve gone and bought this new knit from Acne. I’ve seen it in beige and black, but there was something about it in blue that grabbed my attention. The perfect neckline, revealing just enough of that black mesh Triangl bra, which incidentally is my new favourite underwear of choice. Perfect to tide me over until winter rolls in and I need to hide away in my new Eleven Everything x Charlie May merino polo neck.

CUFFED



My latest thing seems to be trousers; cuffed, loose, split or short, I seem to be amassing no end of the black tailored variety. I’m also gravitating towards all black a lot more than all white this summer, what is going on! After seeing those notorious Calvin Klein SS14 cuffed trousers (that are way out of my budget right now); these Joseph trousers in the sale were the perfect nod towards one of my favourite SS14 trends.

FLIGHT MODE



That summer itch when all you want to do is have a holiday but in actual fact you’re knee deep in work and have nothing planned. The balloon sleeves on this dress quite make me look like I’m about to take off anyhow. Living in all black Y-3 and gleaming white Adidas for the last few weeks, until the heat wave struck and now I don’t quite know what to wear. I think my girl India is rubbing off on me a bit! I was always sporty spice in my school friends group anyway.

PLATFORM


Wearing: Charlie May Ostrich Biker (on sale) and raw mesh shirt, Joseph trousers, Stella McCartney shoes, Saint Laurent bag.

Summer has arrived in London and I am just so happy about it (check out that face in picture two!). It’s getting difficult to get any work done when all you want to do is be in the park with friends and get your new bikini out. I’ve got a pretty exciting/busy week ahead followed by ultimate relaxation in Edinburgh to visit Michael for the bank holiday so it’s all ok :)

Even though the weather is hot, I bike back home from the studio in the evening when the sun isn’t so blaring, so a biker jacket is perfect for the wind. Maybe not the shoes though.. but they’ve been hidden for too long, trainers are out and platforms are back in – for the time being at least..

SAKURA


Wearing: Joseph shirt, Zara trousers and heels, Larsson & Jennings watch, Saint Laurent Lulu bag.

Admittedly not the most minimal of settings, but when it comes to spring time and London is filled with cherry blossoms, the more the merrier! Especially when it comes to the interiors of Michelin starred sushi restaurants; the incredible interior at Sake No Hana has welcomed the arrival of Spring by taking over and entwining the bar with Japanese cherry blossoms. The upstairs restaurant was particularly beautiful; we sat at the sushi bar watching the incredible precision of the sushi chefs making our bento boxes. Obviously THE most delicious I’ve ever eaten, especially with the accompaniment of the limited edition Sakuratini cocktail on the side. 

The pop up is open for another week, until 19th May so you’d better hurry and make your booking before the fleeting blossoms disappear until next year :)

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.

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. 

In collaboration with Harvey Nichols
