Today I trotted (well, cycled) over the bridge, taking a break from the Fashion Week goings on at Somerset House to make a visit to the Tate Modern and their Roy Lichtenstein exhibition preview. The Lichtenstein show is the Tate’s first since 1968 and worth a visit purely for the historical value of his work. [...]
Last week the Farfetch.com team acheived the not inconsequential feat of calling in samples from around the world for their #digitaldressup event. As someone who just hoofed some samples across London, garment bags draped over my head like some kind of stylish batman, respect is due. Farfetch let some of their fave bloggers loose with [...]
A few weeks ago I was invited to Ireland for the launch of Kildare Village’s Chic Summer Festival, which celebrates all that’s great about Irish food, culture and fashion. I gave you a a little sneak preview here, but here’s my trip in all its glory. I’ll always jump at the chance to stock up [...]
My feet at the Designers’ Collective pop-up
Recently I went to Bicester Village for the launch of their ChicBuzz magazine and app. On the day I participated in a livetweet session where the Rebecca Tay, ChicBuzz ed fielded all manner of style-related Qs to me to answer. Here’s an expanded version of my answers from the [...]
This week has been another busy few days of pounding the streets of London going to press days, I always whinge about traipsing around but actually it’s nice to see corners of London.

Margaret Howell is a brand I feel [...]
On Wednesday Bicester Village hosted the British Designers Collective, with a guest appearance by Alexa Chung which caused much kerfuffles and excitement. Although her visit was brief Alexa flew the flag for Brit style in a Bella Freud jumper and Nicholas Kirkwood shoes.
The pop-up store is open until mid-May and is packed with bargain [...]
Kicking off my showroom coverage with Brit designer Rupert Sanderson is a little contrary, but that’s how we works round here. Their warm showroom was a lovely sanctuary from the miserable rain, you know how us Rosbifs like to talk about the weather? Well the Rupert Sanderson showroom was possibly the only showroom I got [...]
Monki launched their Carnaby street store this week by holding a fun party with drinks, mini burgers and an amazing dj set with 90s classics. I really need their lamé light fixtures in my life.
More light fixtures, how brilliant is this buoys chandelier? I spotted it in John Lewis at the weekend, love the [...]
‘Karl’, the new range by Karl Lagerfeld conceived especially for NET A PORTER was launched yesterday at their Westfield offices. The range is quite classic, with a base of hi-shine fabrics in silver lamé, sequins and wet-look. Classic tailoring is given the Karl touch with shirts, tuxedo-style jackets and carrot-leg trousers.
Humourous pieces like the [...]
