JUNE MOOD

What can I say… 2020 is feeling more and more like a season of Black Mirror, with each new month akin to a new episode, complete with a new natural, social or political horror. Opening strong with January, which featured a potential third world war and following with February’s fires in Australia. In March the […] READ MORE


March Mood

I’m currently on day six of the global, pandemic-certified, Covid-19 quarantine. I live in NYC where, currently, social-distancing is not only encouraged, it is largely enforced through the closure of almost all non-essential commerce. I’m only human (and a Taurus at that), so naturally, I spent the first few days sleeping in, binge-watching Netflix, scrolling […] READ MORE


FASHION, ART AND HALLUCINOGENIC PLANTS

Fashion, art and hallucinogenic plants collide in a new capsule line of ceramics; a collaboration between Copenhagen creatives, retailer Mr. Larkin and artist Maria Lenskjold. Founded by Casey Larkin Blond, the high fashion label and multi-brand store stocks only hand-picked, eclectic artists and designers that can co-exist in the weird and wonderful universe that is […] READ MORE


THE CULTURAL PHENOMENON THAT IS SAVAGE X FENTY

If you haven’t been living under a rock for the last two years, you know Rihanna has a lingerie brand. During New York Fashion Week Rih’s Savage X Fenty taped a top secret fashion show that was made available for streaming exclusively on Amazon Prime (where you can now buy the lingerie) on Friday. As […] READ MORE


BURCH IN BROOKLYN

On an early Sunday morning the New York Fashion Week flock flew across the bridge for one of the season’s most established names, Tory Burch. The move to have the show in Brooklyn is significant and emblematic of a changing world – and a changing fashion landscape. The high strung, high brow, inextricably Upper East […] READ MORE


ON DREAMS & REALITY: MUSINGS OF A FASHION INTERN

I had arrived. I was living in Paris – magical Paris – completing a master’s degree at one of the best fashion schools in the world and I had just been hired as an intern at a haute couture showroom during Paris Fashion Week. The news brought almost as much rejoice as my acceptance to […] READ MORE


SWEET & SOUR: THOM BROWNE SPRING 2019 TASTES LIKE SUMMER

Much like McQueen and Galliano in the late 90s, Thom Browne has proven himself to be a contemporary master of the spectacle with his intricate runway extravaganzas often walking the line between fantasy and horror. The Spring 2019 show transformed the Tennis Club de Paris into a bizarre seaside fairytale that at first glance seemed […] READ MORE


VIRGIL ABLOH x LOUIS VUITTON

Due to good fortune, I was in the right place at the right time and scored an invitation to the Louis Vuitton Menswear Spring/Summer 2019 fashion show in Paris – featuring the first collection by Virgil Abloh as creative director. However polarising the views on Abloh’s appointment, it speaks volumes about the current state of […] READ MORE


DIOR: COUTURIER DU RÊVE

So I live in Paris now. Oh, how unreal that statement still feels. I am not quite sure that I will ever be able to say those words without feeling a certain thrill. I will be spending the next two years studying towards a masters degree in fashion studies from Parsons The New School. This […] READ MORE


AN EMBROIDERY STORY

It is on everything. You can hardly turn your head without spotting an embroidered satin bomber, leather handbag or velvet bootie. I suppose you could call it “the Gucci effect”, and blame the current embroidery overload on Alessandro Michele’s eclectic, magpie touch. There is no doubt that the Italian luxury house has heavily influenced the resurgence of […] READ MORE
