Weekly round up: part 2


1. The Margiela collection finally hit H&M stores this week. It largely focuses on oversized jackets, loosely fitted jeans and origami like pieces which drape over the body. See the Look-book here.










2. You'll have seen this photo featured in my last post due to Kate's amazing dress, but in this post it's all about her book signing. And when I say book signing, I mean the book signing celebrity filled after party.
Guests included Liberty Ross, Florence Welch, Stella McCartney, Alison Mosshart, Boy George, Noel Gallagher, Cara Delevingne, Virginia Bates and Edie Campbell and the do was hosted by Marc Jacobs. I think my invite must have gotten lost in the post..it's okay Kate, I forgive you.

3. If you indulged in the December issue of VOGUE you'll probably have already been wowed by this pretty little fella'. But did you know that the Pudsey creation (complete with Swarovski 'twinkle' in his eye) raised over £150,000 for children in need when auctioned off? YAY!


4.The Italian knitwear brand Missoni have announced they're launching a lower priced line of garments. It has been said that the line won't match it's previous prices when the brand combined forces with US store 'Target', but that it is aiming to 'evolve' within the fashion industry. Interesting...


5. Victorias Secret have had to apologise again for causing offence with a native american inspired piece worn by Karlie Kloss in their most recent show. Karlie took to twitter to personally apologise along side the company; 
"I am deeply sorry if what I wore during the VS Show offended anyone. I support VS's decision to remove the outfit from the broadcast."
Earlier this year a similar incident occurred with a geisha inspired outfit; touchy audience or ignorant company?

weekly round up: part 1

For me, winter fashion means two things; sparkly, elegant festive party style and layering up with anything that may keep you even remotely warmer while the low temperatures nip at your nose, hands and feet.
While women in magazines and models on the runway sport clean-cut, sophisticated winter wardrobes, the 'real' woman (in my experience at least) goes for a much more relaxed vibe, focusing mostly on comfort and cosiness. So in this weeks image inspiration post, I've attempted to choose the pictures from the web that most capture the real world of winter fashion. There are exceptions to this idea however, such as kate moss' golden delight, or that glittering silver piece of art with the cross-back. The over all aim of this collection of photos is to appeal to everyone, and all areas where inspiration matters, so I hope you like them and be sure to declare your favourites.
