One of the best things about having a boyfriend is being able to steal his clothes. However, Tim Soar’s autumn/winter 2011/12 collection, cuts out the middle man (literally): ‘For my first proper womenswear collection, it was important to do something coherent across both menswear and womenswear. There was something that I felt was right about menswear for womenswear and the collections mirror each other. With this Him/Her concept, it was very rigorous and it made me very strict with editing pieces out.”
The collection is truly great and indicates just how promising the designer is. Susie Bubble of StyleBubble has written a great post about the authenticity of Tim Soar’s menswear inspired womenswear collection, and how this time, your boyfriend might be stealing from you…

Denim ideas for summer… dungarees with tank tops and boxy tunics with turned up sleeves. Very boyish, utilitarian and easy.

My favourite look from Celine’s 2012 resort collection. The bright white trousers, pointy shoes worn with the colour saturated brocade blazer and bralet is both brilliant and beautiful. Is brocade back?

I love Terry Richardson’s blog. Some great black and white spontaneous portraits, snaps of him and his famous friends, and is ideal for just generally being nosey and procrastinating. Abbee Lee Terry looks great here, wearing copious amounts of bling with a man’s blazer and some sensational specs (both Terry’s, perhaps?)

Love this slouchy suit with shimmering beaded neckline from Yohji Yamamato’s spring/summer 1997 collection. Worn on the girl with pierced ears and a messy chignon, it has an incredibly androgynous nineties feel, and there is something subversive and insouciant about it which is typically Yamamato. The photo reminds me of this quote by the designer: ‘When I started making clothes, all I wanted was for women to wear men’s clothes’.
