Brrrrrrrr, it’s getting cold!  I’ve been napping a lot lately like a lazy coach-potato cat I’ve been working hard from photography assignments and all that travelling.   Lately, I’ve been experiencing some bad luck which normally happen every autumn, until recently, my Old Lady (I called my old Macbook Pro 15″ Old Lady) died on me again which was partly my fault for storing 750GB worth of media files on to desktop which wrecked the hard drive, flight cancellation and missing a flight on a recent press trip.  And a few days ago I slipped and fell hard on a marble floor in the porch whilst clutching my laptop, never mind the bruises I was glad the Old Lady was safe and sound.

As part of the Biker Portraits project, I was asked by All Saints what was the best gig I ever saw, it was Stromae.  I first discovered the singer when he performed at Festival Mawazine in Rabat this summer, I didn’t know what to expect as I never heard of him before and he’s very very popular in European music scenes.  Stromae, a singer and song writer from Belgian, unknown to me, his hip hop and electronic music genres sums up my love for electronic and post-modern 80s influence, the song Tous les Memes has been stuck in my head for many days after watching his high energy performance, and I managed to download his album, although the tracks were sung in French, I didn’t care it was too good!


Wardrobe: Silk blouse – courtesy of Stills Atelier, biker leather jacket – courtesy of All Saints, skinny jeans from Topshop, bag and boots from Jimmy Choo.  Ring from V Jewellery (nicked from my sister Isabella), and watch from Olivia Burton – courtesy of Twisted Time.

9 Items That Were Once a Trend But Now a Wardrobe Staple


There are certain trends that, in hindsight, could be blamed on temporary insanity, like fanny packs, trucker hats, and the list goes on. On the flipside, however, there are also trends that, thanks to their versatility, have evolved into classics. It’s amusing to think that skinny jeans were once a trend, or that crop tops were once treated as a passing fad, right? Keep reading for more items that have transitioned from of-the-moment to can’t-live-without pieces.

Oil Slick

>> From the time when my second sister and I were born to when we were ten (basically about the time when we stopped looking cute and started to creep into awkward tween/teen territory), my two aunties in Hong Kong would send us lots of matching frocks in different colourways because fanciful childrens clothes in Hong Kong would be cheaper and more OTT decorative.  There was the tulle cupcake dress in pink and yellow (Lou would wear pink, I’d wear the yellow).  There were the red and green kilt pinafores with frilly blouses.  Then there was the “sophisticated” long sleeved black dropped waisted dress with a tiered lamé mini skirt.  They were bought when we were still too young to be wearing anything black or shiny.  They were intended for when we were old enough to handle metallics.  That didn’t stop us from going into the “spesh” wardrobe to touch them up.  One was gold flecked with black and the other was iridescent oil slick.  No prizes for guessing which one was the one my sister and I fought over.  Finally when the time came, I was allowed to wear the iridescent lamé dress to a primary school disco where the skirt shimmied and twisted its way to a soundtrack of Kris Kross and New Kids on the Block.  

The rainbow oil slick hues of that tiered lame number was exactly what I had in mind when I bought into Julien David’s pre fall 2014 foil netted awesomeness.  It’s why I went for the iridescent foil option when I tried out “modern manicure studio” (no it’s apparently not a nail salon) Paintbox in New York last week, as it was two doors down from the Mondrian, where I was staying.  As you can see from these pics taken today, they’re growing out already.  Damn my speedy keratin cells.   Any item of clothing or accessory featuring this iridescent rainbow oil slick surface is basically my easy peasy way of wearing what is essentially every colour under the sun depending on what light you stand in.  I’m already contemplating the matching skirt to go with the Julien David top.  Or I can dangerously click through to Julien David’s website, where he’s selling three different colour ways of both the foil net top and skirt and take advantage of what is currently a good Japanese Yen conversion rate (Julien David’s production is all done in Japan, despite him being based in London now) and also the fact that all prices include shipping and tax costs.  Ooops.  In the time it took me to type out that sentence, I just checked out my shopping basket with the skirt.  That’s how much I love thee, you sheeny shiny oily slippery foily thing.

While in  was in NYC during Fashion Week in September I got to visited some of  Tommy Hilfiger‘s favorite places in the city. One of those places was Katz’s, the famous Manhattan deli which has became a city icon over the years. You won’t find a a better (or bigger!) pastrami sandwich anywhere than at Katz’s.  Established in 1888, Katz’s Delicatessen has maintained the tradition and the quality of it sandwiches and remained intact after surviving three depressions, numerous recessions, and two wars. It’s one of the coolest places I’ve been to in the Lower East Side: the space it’s really special and charming, even though you would expect a place recommended  to be touristic, at Katz’s you can actually breath authenticity in every corner, from the food, to the furniture to every member of the welcoming staff. I had the chance to chat with many of the guys working here. Some of them have been working for decades and defenetly have lots amazing stories to tell.
I’m wearing a Tommy Hilfiger total look.

Durante la NYC Fashion Week de septiembre tuve la oportunidad de visitar algunos de los sitios preferidos de Tommy Hilfiger en la ciudad. Uno de esos sitios es Katz’s, un famoso Deli de Manhattan que a lo largo de los años se ha convertido en un icono de la ciudad. No encontrarás sandwich mejor (ni más grande!) en ningún sitio. Inaugurado en 1888, el Delicatessen Katz’s ha mantenido la tradición y la calidad de sus sandwiches y ha permanecido intacta después de haber sobrevivido a tres depresiones, numerosas recesiones y dos guerras. Es uno de los lugares más chulos en los que he estado del Lower East Side: el espacio es muy especial y acogedor sin el ambiente turístico que podrías esperar de un sitio tan conocido. En Katz’s puedes realmente sentir la autenticidad en cada esquina, desde la comida, los muebles a cada miembro del equipo. Tuve la oportunidad de hablar con los trabajadores. Alguno de ellos lleva trabajando décadas allí y definitivamente tiene muchas historias increíbles que contar.
En las fotos llevo un total look de Tommy Hilfiger.

The Reading List….Conflict and Costume by Jim Naughten

I’m realizing now that The Reading List, might have been more aptly named The Viewing List, considering most of the books I love seem to contain more photos than actual words! (a shocking fact-I know)

 

In Conflict and Costume, Naughten photographs the Herero Tribe of Namibia in their native costume. This “costume” has evolved over the last 100+ years out of what Europeans left behind in South Africa, and what the Herero Tribe subsequently adopted. To see so many misplaced patterns, shapes, and colors set against an overwhelmingly serene backdrop, surprisingly creates a nice sense of harmony. It’s funny how two contrasting visuals can play off of eachother so nicely.

Jennifer Lawrence Carries a Cute Loeffler Randall Bag to the Movies

Jennifer Lawrence Carries a Cute Loeffler Randall Bag to the Movies

Jennifer Lawrence was recently spotted coming out of the movies with a gal pal in Hollywood carrying a Loeffler Randall Walker Mini Bag, which is a surprisingly attainable contemporary option for an actress who gets boxes full of Dior goodies shipped to her home. (No, really. She is currently the face of Dior’s newest handbag.) You can find J-Law’s exact bag for $450 at ShopBop.

We penned “The Many Bags of Jennifer Lawrence” relatively early on in her career (way back in 2012, right after the first Hunger Games movie had hit theaters), so it definitely deserves a follow-up post before the year is out. So much has changed for our dear J-Law in two years time. She’s quietly made the move from rising star/”It” girl to bonafide A-lister.

Editor Faceoff: Are Risqué Halloween Costumes Hot or Not?
