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
Speaking of things I love, let me interrupt your browsing for a moment to tell you about Westfield London. On the most basic level, it is a mall. In actuality, it is a building that took thirteen million man hours to build, a building that has ninety-six escalators, and over 265 shopping destinations. The concierge team alone has seventy members. It is the Ultimate Mall.
Today kicked off Westfield’s Car Boot Sale to celebrate London Fashion Week and the launch of A/W 2010. Lily Allen kicked off proceedings ensconced in cream fur and Chanel pumps, while Mary Portas hosted her own Living and Giving car (her stock is INCREDIBLE). Running until the 26th, over 20 Hyundai i20 cars have been hijacked by London’s most sought after brands with something different on offer every day from giveaways to exclusives to styling advice.
Let’s take a look, shall we? View Post
Right after Lily Allen revealed she had been impregnated by Sam Cooper, we have found out that she is also preparing to debut her new fashion store Lucy In Disguise with sister Sarah Owen very soon. The preview will be at Vintage at Goodwood next weekend in a pop-up shop that will sit alongside other retro shopping stalls.
The boutique will open this September near Oxford Street and will showcase Lily’s own wardrobe favourites to rent or buy. Word is there will be everything from tour costumes to flea market finds.
The idea for the store sprung from Lily’s attempts to curb her clothes hoarding, and the fact that she was forever lending them out to friends and family. Lily has also revealed she has an ethical vision for the store, as she feels that second-hand shopping offers ‘an antidote to the mass consumerism culture of high street shopping.’ It probably won’t be as cheap as your local charity shop, but the fact that you can rent a dress of Lily Allen’s is quite something.
