'Astier de Villatte, Paris'...

On Friday I was in Paris for the day attending the SS 2013 Tranoi femme tradeshow for work and managed to squeeze in a quick visit to Colette where Scott Schulman was signing his latest street style tomb, cue mass queue of street stylers. Whilst wandering back to the metro we discovered the amazing Astier de Villatte on Rue Saint-Honore aka my new favourite homeware shop in Paris {you know I am a sucker for all white crockery}. The window display was so cool so I took I quick photo and went inside and bought Mr J a little souvenir in the form of this ceramic 7 of hearts playing card; part Alice in Wonderland part my lucky number / his birthday date - perfect. They also have a really cool website that is well worth a visit.

'Filthy Wilde for William SS 2013'...

On the Friday eve of LFW I was backstage at London's infamous nightclub The Box assisting my great friend, designer and costumier extraordinaire Mr Wilde with styling and general preparations for his debut off schedule show. In a collection where latex lined lace, printed silk jersey, peacock plumes, jewelled rubber and sequins collided in a palette of jade and mint greens, gold and black with hot pink accents - a modern day cleopatra was born. With the gorgeous Daisy Lowe opening and closing the show and a bevy of other beautiful girls {some models/some dancers and performers from the club itself}, amazing ginger hair wigs from Emilia Hermelin, makeup by the very talented Thom Ticklemouse and his team and exquisite gown upon exquisite gown we were in for an evening of exclusive entertainment and excess. Thought I would share some shots I took backstage with you all, just before and as the show got underway, look out for the man himself and the Egyptian head piece I made to go with William's show stopping final look - enjoy...

Foot Fetish Friday - 'Prada's Tabi Sock Geisha Girls'

There is something going on with footwear for Spring 2013 if some of the big players in the industry are anything to go by and that something are flats. Yes, flats. It's happening on the streets too with a noticeable proportion of the FROW working a flat shoe/boot this season and it looks really cool and modern. Don't get me wrong - I love a heel and their leg lengthening effects but there is nothing worse than a women who can't walk in her heels.  You could be wearing THE most desirable footwear but if you are tottering along precariously it is never going to be a good look. I also feel flats are a great way to give a more dressed up evening look egde. In NY when Victoria Beckham {self confessed queen of the killer heel} sent her models down the runway sans her signature 4/5 incher I felt something was bubbling. Anyway, I digress, the shoes that caught my eye this Friday are from Prada and they have a futuristic geisha girl slant with metallic leather tabi sock {some models just wore these sans shoe} and satin bow strap harajuku platform with leather daisy appliqué - WANT.
