Dior Couture Spring '04


While it's still semi-relevant, here is one of my favourite ever couture shows. In other news, I'm going to the Kinder show at Somerset House this morning, shall update when possible!

If I ever decide to start wearing colour, it will now have to be every pastel colour all at once in scribbly patterns. I have recently bought at least 4 beige pieces of clothing (2 dresses, a cardi and some shoes) so if nothing else I have the base for something amazing. All I need to add are the rhinestones, tattered lace and perspex visor with felt tip eyes drawn on. Yes!

Some very pretty, sun bleached shots from David Bellemère, Sophie Vlaming and Marie Claire Italia. I've just made my bi-annual visit to foto_decadent, can you tell?

Kunst Pausen


I generally have nothing nice to say about Claudia Schiffer. However this shoot from Vogue Deutsch is really witty (although I've had to choose photos that didn't show her face. I'm not usually this bitchy...) Shot by Erwin Wurm.

Paolo Roversi is my favourite photographer


This October '09 W shoot is one of the many reasons why. See also here, here and here.

Triskaidekaphobia is a very cool New York jewellery label - does it get better than spikes, teeth and Alice in Wonderland style Victoriana?

Architectural Digest

I love looking at other peoples' houses and decorative choices, and keep a file of photos for when I buy my own home. The American magazine Architectural Digest has some of the very best homes - fully conceptualized design schemes, but without pretension, frills or gaudiness. It's obvious that everything in these images is of the highest quality, but the natural fibres and quirky touches make each home - rather than a stale museum of style - entirely comfortable. The first set is my favourite, but for me happiness will always be an armchair next to the bedroom window (like the one I am currently typing from in my rented flat - thanks landlords!)
