I finally got my birthday shoes in the post! – A birthday present to myself I might add; found on a dusty corner of eBay and shipped across the Atlantic. They’re taking a bit of wearing in. I managed to hobble out of Shini’s house to take these pictures (just kidding, but they are most definitely cab to curb heels only for now…). Worn with the white wool coat from my AW13 collection and other perfectly matching white things. Possibly my favourite outfit on here, ever.

One of my favourite pictures from when I was down in Devon, taken on instagram after a day on the beach – which clearly you can tell by my skin! I’d been looking for the perfect pair of white trousers for forever and I found these in Zara (similar here and here), so happy when the high street gets it right.
Speaking of high street, what do we think of the news that Isabel Marant will be the next in line for H&M collaboration? It seems logical to go for such an easy-to-wear, laid back brand after the avant garde aesthetics of Margiela last year. That being said, I think what made the Margiela collection genius as it was actual remakes of key archive pieces, and I’m still wearing my leather trews consistently.
Back to work after the holidays and busy with production for AW13, SO excited to get my e-commerce site up and running so you guys will have a lot more choice and see more what my brand is all about. In the meantime Bengt are having a 30% off pre sale so make sure you snatch up anything you’ve had your eye on before it goes! Just use the code FLASHSALE30 at the checkout.

Sometimes I find nail polish to be a bit too perfect and glossy looking. I love the look of a white decaying textured wall, so I thought I would try and translate it into my nails, just for fun. This was actually something we did for the SS13 show, painting the nails and then sponging it off for a more lived in, rough and ready feel. The trick is to wait until it’s almost set, then use a sponge to heavily dab into the varnish.
