If there’s ever been a style of shoe to make you stop, step back and squint your eyes - questioning their very existence and meaning - it’s the geriatric-inspired mash-up. No one word could describe the part-sandal, part-jogger, part-slipper that’s storming runways and streets. Are they cool? How far is too far in our obsession with… Continue reading the geriatric shoe :: comfort vs. cool.
We are well and truly clear of fashion month now. Obviously, designers and labels across the board, from luxury to fast fashion, are pouncing on the feminist movement and strong political undercurrents that are on the lips of (almost) every living being right now. It's not new this season; it's not a new “trend”. But… Continue reading dressing the modern day suffragette.
Amidst a sombre world outlook, a harrowing time for many, Dries Van Noten's 100th show was the breath of life needed to revive our spirits and kick us into optimism mode again.

Is it all our fault as a… Continue reading fashion week dramas :: more ruffles.

We all know I am an incessant list-maker and note-taker. I have notebooks and post-its coming out my ears. There's a very real fear I could wake up in a midst of floating paper, having scattered all my paper notes like confetti, gathering on my bed ( like all those clothes I fail to put… Continue reading reliving :: louis vuitton.
Now that spring is officially here - as the winds get a little warmer, the sneezes a little more common, and the layers peeling off - I can finally look back on the Resort collections with happiness, as opposed to hatred. Living in the Southern Hemisphere in winter while our fashion friends up North swelter… Continue reading reliving :: rosie assoulin resort.
Recently I’ve started a new ritual. It’s called “old lady hannah” - slightly worrying that it’s already come to this at the age of 24. Basically, I sleep, nodding off at a reasonable time to get up at a ridiculous time. I actually get my 7 hours in which is a close miracle considering my… Continue reading reliving :: giambattista valli couture.
