A while back I did a couple of posts that thinly disguised my hatred for the PLAGUE OF PLAID that had infested menswear. OK, that sounds a bit pompous and high-fallutin’. I still stand firm. Well, sort off… I’ve been drawn as of late to the geometrically patterned chemise but I’m leaning towards gingham as opposed to plaid. Thus, I don’t feel such a hypocrite. Its that slight feeling of spring in the air that gets one thinking about the summer […]
The Willow Shoreditch 92 Hoxton Street London N1 6LP orders & enquiries: 020 7739 3009 / 020 7613 2587 OK, I might be a little bit biased here but one of my dearest friends has just opened his first shop in Hoxton, London, and what a beauty it is. Blooming marvellous, to use a cliché. Picture this: an urban East End setting, a bit rough round the edges, to say the least, and then amongst all this the most perfect […]
Oooh er, what’s this I spy with my not so little eye? There’s a new shop opening in Hoxton Street at the end of the week – The Willow Shoreditch. Promises to be a modern florist cum petit café cum emporium of delectable bits and bobs pour chez vous. Will post pics later.

+J Jil Sander for Uniqlo Model_ Iselin Steiro Photographer_ David Sims Stylist_ Joe McKenna Went to the Uniqlo store this afternoon to check out the new collaboration with Jil Sander for spring-summer 2010: +J. The first thing I noticed was that it wasn’t the mad frenzy that usually follows these sort of launches: Kate Moss for Topshop, the H&M link-ups. It was, well, quite civilzed. I kind of liked that. Clearly displayed product. Light, airy store. You got the feeling that anyone […]
Off to see what all the fuss is about later on today. Read a piece in the paper the other day that Jil’s new collection for the Japanese brand is being launched today. Wasn’t too keen on the debut range. The new collection’s meant to have more of a sartorial bent. Let’s see…
I must say, the Christmas windows have been a tad bit disappointing in the City of Lights. Galleries Lafayette: Le Shocking!! I mean, super tacky. Worth the trawl through the scrum to make it to the food hall, though! Yumm! Anyway, I just had lunch with a darling friend of mine – my second lunch of the day; all I seem to be doing is eat, eat, eat! Anyway, she’s done the most beautiful window artwork for Monsieur Red Soles. […]

(Sing along to the tune of Beyonce’s “If I Were A boy”.) If I were a girl, without any delay, I’d get AddLee down to Bond Street Jump out in front of Miu Miu And lust after this beautiful coat… ********************************* If I were a girl, I know how I’d wear this coat I’d team it with my Loubies, My lanvin blouse and Marni skirrrrrrt, oh, yay! ******************************************* I’d reach for my purse Bet you know how it hurts When […]
