Lily Allen Fashion Line
Six months ago, Lily Allen and sister Sarah Owen opened a vintage shop to the name of “Lucy in Disguise” because ‘we love vintage and we’re not clothing designers‘. That didn’t last long. A stylish birdie has told us the duo are now launching an 18-piece RTW collection of vintage-inspired dresses with the assitance of LVMH menswear style director Nadia Jones.

The collection will be released in June, in Harvey Nichols for the the UK, Shopbop for the US, and at Lucy at Disguise both in store and online. Take a look at some of their pre-release sketches below! View Post

The itinerary thus far for September 8th, 2010 in London is as follows.

Also, to celebrate Liberty’s new scarf room opening, the store will be hosting styling classes and mini-fashion shows showing customers how to wear their scarf.

Harvey Nichols: Head to Harvey Nichols in Knightsbridge where designers including Erdem, Christopher Kane and Martin Grant will be on hand to customise the Fashion’s Night Out charity T-shirts and tote bags on sale in store. The first floor will create an old-fashioned haberdashery area where designers will help you jazz up your piece. Have a picture taken with your favourite designer in one of the store’s photo booths. In Manchester, the store will host a variety of designer trunk shows or, alternatively, guests can eat a three-course meal while watching the hit fashion film Devil Wears Prada. The Leeds branch will hold a large-scale fashion showcasing autumn/winter’s key looks and trends. View Post

Lula Magazine Spread With Cintia

Favorite Lula spread

Lula might be my favourite fashion magazine (though they kill it with music and art showcases as well). With an eternally retro feel combined with all of the most incredible and interesting talent of recent years, every issue is a visual delight. There is something almost friendly about the writing, styling, photography, and illustrations that are splattered across the 3lb-in-weight issues. It’s what every young girl dreams she finds to stick on her bedroom wall.

In celebration of their fifth birthday, Fiona Leahy designed a celebratory pop-up shop in Harvey Nichols Knightsbridge that opens today! They’re giving away Chanel goodies with every purchase, and definitely giving you reasons to purchase with Erdem, Miu Miu, Rodarte, Sonia Rykiel and Charles Anastase exclusives.

Fourth Floor. 109 – 125 Knightsbridge, London, SW1X 7RJ.
