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. While trends of power women, fur and stripes on stripes were scattered throughout fashion month, none delivered such a positive note. Collections referred… Continue reading dries van noten: our spark of joy.
A quick note for you before the weekend begins. HAVE YOU SEEN GORMAN'S LATEST COLLABORATION? Sorry for yelling but Liz Payne and Lisa Gorman have smashed this one. What are two of my favourite things? Gorman, and embroidery. It is a multi-coloured dream come true. While Gorman is famed for vibrant prints and patterns (… Continue reading tactile retail therapy.
My post on African fashion has been sitting patiently, just waiting for a new burst of inspiration, ever since I arrived home from Tanzania. It seems so long ago now ( isn't it depressing when such a perfect time of life all of a sudden blurs? ). Amongst many other things over there, the people… Continue reading a love letter to african fashion.
There's enough content, labels and inspiring people on sustainable fashion to cover at least 5 posts a day, every day, for years and years. Sadly this isn't my full-time job. Sadly the time to put it all together doesn't exist in my life at the moment. So I settle for a couple of times a month,… Continue reading the sustainers :: mara hoffman.
I'm really torn about this new Kenzo x H&M collaboration. A few feelings: - I understand the pros for each brand in a relationship like this, but let's be honest, H&M may have made significant changes to add sustainable measures, yet is inherently fast fashion. A partnership is somewhat debatable. A lot more to be said on… Continue reading old school :: kenzo.
Instead of saying I have a big head or big brain - because I ( hopefully ) don't really identify with either of those connotations - I choose describe myself as big minded. Clearly my brain is a constant mish-mash of thoughts. Sometimes good, sometimes bad. And, unlike the regular person who notices a thought… Continue reading reliving :: rachel comey.
Today is a day that saw way too many crazy emotions flying around, and decision making attempts that were just too difficult. My full brain could not handle. It’s a worry when you can’t even make the decision about whether to have a coffee or not, leaving fate up to a simple 20c coin. But… Continue reading reliving :: stella mccartney.
The Spring collections are always my favourite - the perfect timing for every Australian to start planning their beach wardrobe. Time to get the florals out, and the hair flowing and bleached. Not very Paris, but très perfect. Technically we should be ahead of the fashion curve, so cutting-edge and on-trend, but inexcusably we aren’t. We… Continue reading reliving :: mary katrantzou.
Work-from-home day meant literally looking like I just woke up - unfortunately I wasn't the glamorous natural beauty that all the mags love to celebrate. Thankfully I wasn't expecting that, had too much experience with it already. Fresh(ish) and bare faced, ripped denim shorts, getting down to my work party of one. I have a… Continue reading got the brights.
It's not much of a reliving when it only took place the other week, but well-deserved anyhow. Marques'Almeida's frayed denim features have become an instant hit - the world has already been swept up in the frenzy as we all dig for anything fray. They've done the quadruple denim and pulled it off. I also… Continue reading reliving :: marques’almeida.
