LOVE this editorial by Jalouse magazine. The colour clash tailoring, printed separates and curly candy-floss hair. But most of all: the Alice in Wonderland-esque, humongously oversized bowler hat with a bouquet of roses perched on top. If I had a reason to wear that hat, I would do so in a heartbeat.

Blue sky, ruby red flowers and an amazing 1970′s blouse and skirt in sunny yellow. The cover is also amazing.

… To SIBLING, who have received NewGen funding for their new line SISTER by SIBLING, which as they told LFW, will sit, ‘on the SIBLING family tree SISTER is on the branch right next to brother SIBLING so you can expect colour, humour, sparkle and that everything will be knitted.’
Can’t wait to see more knitted beauties like these from the team’s Topshop line…

Anja Rubik in an amazing D&G outfit. Printed jeans aren’t really something I’d wear, but I love the cotton floral shirt. It looks like it’s cotton or denim and has the stiffness of a man’s shirt, which steers it away from mumsy blouse territory and into the acceptable boyish boundaries.

Saw these bad boys on afashionablesport.com and I want I want I want. Converse have taken on the Jack Purcell tennis shoe, and the two have had some babies. The heritage of badminton player/sneaker designer Jack Purcell is here in the coloured piping in Purcell’s signature smile on the toe and the terry cloth lining (typical of performance shoes in the 1980s). I love the embossed name at the top of the tongue and the fact that they are the perfect hybrid between classic Converse and Jack Purcell sneakers. That’s a job well done.

Originally a menswear designer for the last few years, it was last autumn/winter that J W Anderson broke out into womenswear due to high demand from his stockists and the fashion elite. The grown up tomboy look Anderson dreamt up for the ladies is inspired by ‘the idea of two lovers borrowing each other’s clothes, or wearing a jumper that a friend left behind’. You wouldn’t want anything else from such a brilliant menswear designer, after all.
Photography by William Gedney conjured up Anderson’s story of a boyfriend and girlfriend on an American road-trip for his spring/summer 2011 collection. It includes boyfriend knits emblazoned with crochet, over-dyed denim, boyish boxy short sleeved shirts, and a sprinkling of gauzy silk. I want every piece.
Love the dewy make up and scruffy hair-up in this editorial from Bon magazine. I’ve recently been craving an over-dyed indigo denim jacket like the one the model’s wearing here. Definitely need to pay a trip to Levi’s in the foreseeable future.
