Portrait series - Taku
Taku in a Y.M.C terry jacket, Schott Prefecto Brand vest and a vintage logan quilted shirt.
Shoes are amazing - Ann Demeulemeester
No lace is ever too much lace - especially when it comes to a pair of kickass ninja boots like these. I love these so much they deserve a second shot… Just to make sure you didn’t miss the shifted heel: Spot on trend - and they’re almost vintage - if 2008 counts as vintage?
The Power Of Onion
This is a DIY post… inspired by A Pare And A Spare’s post on vegetable dyes. I was instantly turned on when Geneva wrote about a rustic copper colour that we could get while dyeing clothes with onion skin so, naturally, I gave it a go. And I love the result…! I had this beautiful DVF white wrap dress in my wardrobe that resembled more of a hospital uniform than anything...
Adidas going Green
In Kwun Tong
… A bowler and a fur jacket outside everyone’s favourite noodle shop in Kwun Tong.
Kung Hei Fat Choi
Happy Chinese New Year, peoples. I have always known it was tradition to wear red during this festive season, but I have never asked why - so I paid a visit to our trusted friend, Wikipedia. To make a long story short, a monster (aka Nian) used to go to villages every new year to eat everyone (and everything), until the villagers noticed that the Nian was scared of the colour red. Ever...
A bit of Neon
Pull out your gloves this Chinese New year because it’s getting cold… like 10 degrees cold (so this probably means minus 15 in the offices?) - Gloves with something neon get bonus points. Above: Gloves from A142, Spitalfields Market, London and Ottolenghi’s newest (vegetarian) cookbook, Plenty. YUM.
Eliza Joan, London
I found Eliza Joan on a cold Thursday morning in Spitalfields Market, London, and fell in love with her accessories. I never thought I was a fan of knitted accessories - but it turns out I am a huge fan of anything knitted, and I have been desperate to find myself some nice accessories… Everything is hand made from recycled materials and that is more than enough to convince me…...
A colour blocking sweater with a double handle twill bag - Loving the details in her style…
Local with a Twist, please.
You know when a designer tells you that they have made a collection that is local (Hong Kong) with a twist? Well… This is exactly the kind of thing I have in mind. Very few people manage to pull of a Cheung Sam (yes… I believe that’s what you call a traditional Chinese dress), but Kawai Wong does it oh so well. In fact, I have been told it’s her signature style - now...
Outside Nopi, London
This is the gorgeous Manon taken off guard, outside the amazing restaurant Nopi near Liberty, London. She is going to kill me for posting this photo of her - but I love it. Here’s another one taken not-so-off guard… Nopi, the new concept restaurant opened by the Ottolenghi group, was amazing. I only had the opportunity to taste deserts (yes, I had 3) and I will definitely be...
Equine Inspirations - Fly nets
A protective net against flies - I was fascinated… Don’t ask.
Gems of Sri Lanka
Sri Lanka is extremely popular for the abundance of gems and precious stones - the crazy amount of gorgeous jewelry there will make any woman (or man-buying-his-wife-jewelry) cry. All I was able to get was this bracelet, but it was good enough for me.
Portraits - Anthony
… being himself in a chambray shirt with navajo details and a brown felt fedora.
Central Park, New York
From the back - Suede details
Shot taken in New York, back in October.
… somewhere in between Dubai and Abu Dhabi. I was told the longer their eyelashes, the more chances they had of winning camel beauty contests… Hello eyelash extensions?
… from Dubai.
To a Happy New Year
I have no style shots for this one… because I was in bed in my glamorous pajamas reading Shantaram (highly recommended to anyone looking for a good read). But I would love to know what you were wearing on this special night… Looking forward to seeing pictures on facebook! Happy 2012 to everyone!
