Osman Fall Winter 2011
Afghan designer Osman Yousefzada smoothly jumped out the ‘black hole’ of neutrals for Fall/Winter 2011. Fearless, supplementary colours were notably paired with blush leather bodices and exceptional, organic lines. It was a beautiful departure to the big time for Yousefzada. Everything bright orange belongs to me, OK? Top five looks below! View Post

Temperley Fall winter 2011
In the halls of the British Museum, Alice Temperley took my reservations of Temperley London and turned them to dimensional fandom. While her designs have always been excellent, the one-note themes have kept them contained. Thanks to a bevy of detailed cocktail dresses and red-carpet rulers, these are destined to be award show commodities. There was simply nothing left to be desired. See the top five looks below!

Mulberry Fall Winter 2011
Claridge’s Ballroom is an idyllic location for a Mulberry show. At their showboating best, equestrian-dressed males served up fruity delights and cupcakes designed to look like giant red and white mushrooms. Attention to detail is the name of the Mulberry game, with some truly charming takes on layering being walked, as voiceovers from The Fantastic Mr. Fox replaced background music. In regards to their cash cow: new postman’s locks act as handbag closures and have fox face rivets in place of traditional Mulberry screws. See the top five looks below! View Post

PPQ Fall Winter 2011
I am having Veruca Salt-cravings for a cat hat, Amy Molyneaux and Percy Parker. In fact, I think all of your designs for PPQ Fall/Winter 2011 are exceeding brilliance. The accessories alone were wholly covetable: platforms with feathers and fine fabric features, ice cube-sheathed evening bags, mega buttons, and more! While the bonkers eclipsed the show, there were some sublime pieces with simple silhouettes. Deep down, everyone wants to be a PPQ girl. See the top five looks below! View Post

House of Holland Fall Winter 2011
Another season, another giggle. With his Fall/Winter 2011 show invites printed as bingo cards, Henry Holland‘s collection showed no apprehension on the frivolity front. The cheeky chappy patterned, clashed, crocheted, and tweeded (not to be confused with Tweeted) like never before. Obviously, the key piece was the ‘sex in sign language‘ sweater, which was draped over a lemon chiffon dress. Must have. See the top five looks – including the sex sweater – below! View Post
