Seeing the World Through Charlotte Rampling’s Eyes……..

Ohhh I must be missing Melbourne right now…..it’s hard not to, with my family and dear friends over there, enjoying their take away skinny lattes, new deliveries of Lover’s winter Lydia collection and fish & chips…………my friends over there, keep inspiring me over here…..but they always have……another dear friend Deanne and I were discussing personal [...]

Magical Making with Isobel Knowles and Cat Rabbit…….

A while back my dear friend Isobel told me she was working on a book, using her amazing animation talents……(my thought not her words!) and every so often she would mention it again……now one of Isobel’s charms, is her total modesty, which means being blown away every time she shows me something new she has [...]

Front Row at Nina Ricci…..Le Bon Marché….

When the new season arrives in Paris, everyone wants to see it from the front row, including the mannequins at Le Bon Marché…all dressed in Nina Ricci……I can’t help but think of eighties VM classic film, Mannequin……the dresses, exquisite of course….. Le Bon Marché, 24 rue de Sèvres 75007 Paris, France

Kenzo……..THEN………

In the 1970′s Paris fashion experienced it’s most lasting fashion revolution with YSL, Karl Lagerfeld, Sonia Rykiel, Ungaro….. the new establishment in place….the white gloves were off….and in came the fun, which still remains, amongst those who added the newness was Kenzo……with his label JAP, and his love of colour, knitwear and prints…. Paris in [...]

What’s Your Favourite T-shirt?

How genius is this? Penthouse magazine ask French legend Jean-Paul Goude to shoot New Yorkers in their favourite t-shirts……I think this shoot and the films Tootsie and Eyes of Laura Mars, capture what I love about New York in the seventies……they probably all went to Studio 54 after the shoot…..can you spot the up and [...]

Fun Times at Colette Carnaval…..Paris..

Inside the very tents, that had just been home to many amazing shows this last week in the Jardin des Tuileries, was the weekend carnival hosted by mini department store Colette, to celebrate their 15th birthday……..we headed over with much excitement late Saturday afternoon, to find the longest queue I have ever seen in my [...]
