For Him: Fall & Rise……

In Uncategorized on September 23, 2012 at 10:35 am

Made famous by Astaire, Sinatra & Martin then spoiled by the likes of Hefner & Bieber, without a doubt The Velvet Smoker Jacket has had a tumultuous career.

However, LV, Gucci, Valentino & Alexander McQueen have come as a saving grace for this classic, allowing it to return to former glory.

 These fashion juggernauts are all opting for a slimmer, tailored jacket, coupled with minimalist colours that ooze style.

Not yet up to wearing a full blown velvet jacket? You can choose options that offer a discreet flash of velvet on the lapel, pockets or piping.

One thing’s for sure, with jackets like these – smoking has never looked so good.

For many years Burberry was placed on a shelf, collecting dust and falling wayside to its adaptive competitors.

However, this iconic British Brand has recently re-appointed itself as a new age, pioneering global fashion house.

Christopher Bailey, Creative Director of Burberry is at the helm of this transformation, pushing boundaries in regards to the companies fashion, customer service and social media footprint.

Most notably, the mix between tradition and innovation has attributed to Burberry’s success which is epitomised in its newly introduced Walking Umbrellas. These handcrafted pieces are complemented by distinctive “animal handles” including Ram, Duck, Hound and Owl Heads.

Happy Hunting.

New York Fashion Week

In Uncategorized on March 14, 2012 at 11:14 pm

At the recent New York Fashion week I was lucky enough to attend the Tommy Hilfiger show (more photos on that later) and also to hang out the front of the Lincoln Centre and offsite fashion shows and spot some fashion elite, some well dressed people I had no idea who they were and some models. Unfortunately, somebody walked in front of my picture of Anna Wintour and I believe I will not get over it for the rest of my life- even though I know I was only a few feet away from her. Today I will share with you some pictures of Rachel Zoe outside the Donna Karan show in Chelsea.

Tonight I had the pleasure of meeting the singular Oscar of Oscar Oscar at the new Fortitude Valley salon opening. There is a giant white horse at the back on the store but unfortunatetly you can’t see it in the photo. Located at 354 Brunswick Street the new salon has mirrors that could challenge Versailles. So next time you need a haircut meet Oscars favourite pony at the new valley salon.
