I finally got back some more images from a shoot I styled for DJ duo Disco Damage and photographed by Thomas Hein - the rest of the images can be seen HERE.  The shot below features a star patterned leather jacket by Korean label Human Potential and a plastic 'Temple Talisman' oversized necklace by FinchittidaFinch.  I'm doing another shoot with them tomorrow with a 'forbidden fruit' theme - can't wait to see how that turns out!

FW12/13 Press Days Part 2

IMG_3402 IMG_3403
I wrote a similar blog post yesterday for 1883 Digital (Check it out HERE) talking about some of my favorite picks from various press days around London, but I still have more I want to share.  Starting with Black Frame who carry Kenzo, a brand I've only recently fallen in love with.

Designed this season by Humberto Leon and Carol Lim, co-founders of New York's Opening Ceremony, the Kenzo man wore a lot of deep, saturated tones with pops of bright orange not to mention some luminescent green thick rubber soled shoes.  I especially loved the mirrored sunglasses with clear toned frames and the all over print outfit on the right.

Black Frame also carried the fun and quirky Meadham Kirchhoff whose accessories for her latest collection are straight out of Sesame Street on an LSD trip.  Another accessory designer that I am now obsessed with is Delfina Delettrez - these baroque dollhouse-like mirror earrings are super charming and very editorial.  
Finch & Partners PR now carry footwear by a designer called Alejandro Ingelmo, known more for his women's designs but who has recently been getting a lot of talk about his mens designs as well.  I especially liked these patent leather lace-ups with thick white soles.  
My goal this spring is to find a pair of jelly shoes in a US size 12, which I'm guessing is going to be a challenge.  Why do I always find women's shoes that with a slight tweak would make excellent shoes for myself?  I just love the retro vibe that these Juju jellies (seen at Coffin on Cake's press day) throw off, along with the minimalist clear aesthetic.  One day I will also hopefully find a pair of clear plastic lace-ups, which I've been dreaming about for years.  
Yet more black pony skin this season, this time seen on a pair of slippers by Marc Cain at the Task PR press day.  Also another pair of women's shoes that could easily translate into menswear but would be very hard to find. I really need to become a shoe designer or something!

Last but not least is Eskimo PR who served a lovely breakfast at  their press day yesterday. Two things that stood out most for me were this deer skin (I'm going to tell myself it wasn't Bambi) vest handmade in Britain by Fallow.  I also loved these round frame Andy Wolf sunglasses - with mirrored lenses similar to those seen at Kenzo.

Blow PR presented the official press launch of on Tuesday night at the Arts Club on Dover Street. Proving to be a who's who of the millinary glitterati the party featured hats on display from the likes of Philip Treacy, J. Smith Esquire and Emma Yeo, however it was little old Burger Kim and his homemade horse head hat that stole the show. Go Burger!  Check out some of the other styling guests below.

Man Like Me

Squeeze – the latest all over the place video from Man Like Me is out now and features a studded vintage red leather jacket by Burger & Fries from our ASOS Marketplace boutique. From the aisle of a shopping mart to the scene of a virgin sacrifice, the two boys styled by @MinnaAttala romp and dance and stumble around the video to quite the catchy tune.  Sadly this particular leather jacket is sold out, but here are a few other reformed beauties just waiting for a new home:

A few weeks ago I was asked by a Korean menswear label called Vino to style myself wearing a mixture of my own clothing and some of their new collection for a few street style photographs.  I chose this blue check jacket and styled it with bright yellow, blue & green pop colors perfect for spring.    

My flatmate Oscar Lindqvist (check out his blog Le Roi De Noir HERE) was also asked to join.  This kid has a very black and impressive wardrobe and he styled this black check suit from Vino with some smart, luxury accessories.
