The Isetan department store, should be the blue print of all department stores, there is enough wonderment on every floor to keep the hardest to please out of breath! One of Japan’s most incredible stores creates not catalogs but mini magazines with the likes of Japan Vogue…..this shoot part of their Autumn Winter 2010-2011 special [...]

Belle and Sebastian….Write About Love….

Many birthdays ago, my dear friend Katrina gave me a Belle and Sebastian dvd….I didn’t know much about them at the time outside of a few songs……but of course after the first viewing, I fell in love with these Glasgow natives and to this day I can still pick a Glasgow accent anywhere….they are an [...]

Feels Like Summer….Looks Like Spring……

Could it be that summer will actually arrive? Maybe….for now spring is bringing out the best outfits I have seen in Melbourne for some time, so it looks like fashion inspiration is in the air……The following shoot from Spanish magazine Paper Planes issue 1, by Txema Yeste, is breath taking, I keep going back to [...]

Days of the Week…Paris, London, New York…..

Another favorite Japanese magazine special, are the editorials featuring street style, from around the world…..long before fashion street blogs were the norm, they had been publishing a version of this since the late eighties…..usually it is shop girls who are featured, since in Japan, they are respected as beacons of style for their brands…..in a [...]

A Rhapsody of Jane and Joe…….

The Serge Gainsbourg Festival sadly ends tonight….but it has been an amazing season of beauty…..for this is essentially what Serge was all about…..whether it was reflected in his music, films or muses…..and this is certainly what we saw in the films shown….I have loved the love story between Jane Birkin and Serge for some time…..but [...]

Off The Runway….on to the street….

And The Winner Is……

1969 was an amazing year for films…..watching the performances of the following 5 actresses being nominated for  best supporting actress, it amazes me how not all five won…..I can’t imagine seeing this level of cinema or acting today being nominated any time soon……all five films deserve being rediscovered, all look so harrowing and a little [...]

Spotted….The Girl in the Perfect Skirt….

I love how lost in the seventies this look is and the cream skirt with tights combo is one of my favorites……Catherine, editor at German Vogue, not shy about setting her own trend at Paris Fashion Week….. Photo: Candice Lake, UK Vogue
