I love you Bianca, I love you Sierra.

Chinatsu Nobe is a hairstylist, who designed the fantastic horse-mane rats' nests in the Graham Tabor photoshoot I recently wrote about. After a long day, when I can't be bothered to wash my hair, I wish I could cover it up with a wig made entirely of flowers.
Junko Shimada graduated from the Sujino Gajen Dressmaker Institute of Tokyo in the late 1960s, moved to Paris and stayed forever (as one of the first Japanese designers to settle there). I appreciate the hyper feminine prints and colours in contrast with the avant-garde and almost ridiculous volumization.

Ishi Glinsky's necklaces meld high end baubles with found scrap metal. The one four five one website has written something obscure about Dadaism but I'm just imagining how cool they'll look layered over some of my favourite winter looks.

A couple of days ago I was alerted to LOOKBOOK.nu, the best street style website I have ever seen. I must have looked at 100 photos, and there wasn't a single dud. It has inspired me to start documenting my own outfits in a more composed way.
Thanks for inviting me Yuri!
P.S. I can't remember exactly who this outfit belongs to, apologies.

It's fair to say that I am often less drawn to the basic merits of certain items I write about, and more to the overall ambience and aesthetics of the way they are represented. Most of my research is based around items I will never own, so I'm not afraid to admit that I like to look at pretty pictures as much as pretty clothes. L'Ecole des Femmes is safely confined to this category. Even if I could easily buy their clothes, I really don't think I would, because they're quite average and definitely not my style, but the model is cute, I like her mouse ears, and the photo-effects are sugary and pastel enough to belong on this page.
