K U R T C O B A I N - But Not As You Know It.
Currently obsessing over the delicate grunge looks at DVN for SS13.I love the careful juxtaposition of plaid and screen printed florals in luxe organza , lame and mousseline fabrics. Effortlessly chic separates that can be transited from day to night looks. I’ll be on the hunt for similar but affordable looks from the high street this week. Stay tuned x
I have been remiss in not posting more of these. Bad me. Anyhoo, in my newest installment of “You gotta start somewhere”, I invited my friend Alexis Bryan Morgan, Executive Fashion Director of Lucky Magazine to share with us some of the lessons she learned early on in her fashion career. Hope you…
If a young man tells his date how handsome, smart and successful he is – that’s advertising. If the young man tells his date she’s intelligent, looks lovely, and is a great conversationalist, he’s saying the right things to the right person and that’s marketing. If someone else tells the young woman how handsome, smart and successful her date is – that’s PR.

The gentlewoman. SS 2013
I picked up the gentlewoman today mainly because Beyonce was on the cover! Surprisingly i thoroughly enjoyed reading the other features as much i did the Beyonce feature. I also loved that the cover wasn’t paper, everything about it is completely different, from Caroline Roux’s texts about ‘modern details’ to cleverly styled looks by Marie Chaix for ‘the V’ feature. I’ll definitely be collecting the next issues for my style archives. You can Pick up a copy from & other stories on Regent Street. Xx

Love her voice.
“From a very early age, French women learn not to exaggerate. Yves Saint Laurent once said that the purpose of clothes is to make women more beautiful but that a coat must never attract more attention than the woman wearing it.”
“I don’t change my handbag every season. I believe in the Yves Saint Laurent woman who either has her hands in the pockets of her pantsuit or is holding her lover’s hand. She doesn’t need a bag.”
“If you don’t want to make any mistakes, buy black clothes. That’s always good. And from age 50 on, you can slowly start adding a little beige. That’s softer. Every five years, you should take a critical look at your own wardrobe and, if necessary, eventually swap your bikini for a one-piece swimsuit.”
