Wishlist: Daisy's Lace Dimes

Posted on Monday, 8 December 2014

It's that time again to start compiling your Christmas lists and here is one item which is firmly on mine... Daisy Knights Lace dimes!I fell in love with them last London Fashion Week when Daisy was supporting them on her super cool pink vans. On a recent interview with the designer, I delved deeper into the story behind the Lace Dimes...

I'm seriously obsessed with your Lace Dime collection, where did you get the idea to design them from?  

I am a religious Vans wearer and I love to customise my clothing so it was a natural progression which led to making something cool and original! They're so easy to wear and look great alone or piled up together - plus, of course, they're not restricted to trainers - I think they look great on brogues or boots too.

Stalked: Jordan Nassar. Coordinator of Fairs and Editions for Printed Matter Inc & Artist

Posted on Tuesday, 2 December 2014

I first met Jordan at a private view at the super cool gallery Evelyn Yard in London in which he had previously exhibited his own works at a few months before. Jordan, a born and bred Manhattan boy is not only a very talented artist but also is one of the main guys behind Printed Matter Inc and the Printed Matter Fairs.

I caught up with Jordan for drinks and a hotdog at Herman Ze German on Charlotte Street while he was in London for Frieze week, and quizzed him on what he's doing and what artists he's following at the moment.

What do you do and what do you love about your job? 

I work as Coordinator of Fairs and Editions for Printed Matter Inc. in New York City. Basically, me and one other guy run Printed Matter's NY Art Book Fair and LA Art Book Fair, each Fall at MoMA PS1 and New York and each Winter at the MOCA in Downtown Los Angeles, respectively. The events are the world's largest and are totally unique - part trade fair, part art fair, part mass-pop-up-shop, part festival - a celebration of Artist's Books and the community surrounding. We organise 250-350 exhibitors, a weekend full of Visual Art and Artist's Book-related programming, conferences, bands, parties and everything else to do with the events. While a part of me loves the spreadsheets and huge logistical accomplishment, what I love most about it is bringing the community of artists, Artist's Book makers, publishers, and aficionados together - it's a bit like summer camp, seeing all these friends who live all over the place in one spot. 

Stalked: Lucy Alston, Brand Stylist, Hobbs

Posted on Friday, 28 November 2014

Please meet the lovely Lucy, the very talented stylist behind Hobbs' gorgeous shoots, windows and general overall look! No surprise she is also one of my favourite pinterest pinners, her style and taste comes out in her boards.

What do you do and what's the best part of your job?

I am Senior Brand Stylist for Hobbs, my favourite part of the job is the trend research,  keeping up with the latest shows of the season and compiling into a presentation. I also love pulling together seasonal moodboards which dipict a real sense of the season to come, which I use for window styling and online edits. Being envolved in the very beginnings of the creative process and product is also something that I find a really enjoyable part of my job. 

The Man Clutch

Posted on Wednesday, 26 November 2014

Ohh that fabulous old debate, should men wear bags? Funnily enough quite a few men and women say no...! But I think, why shouldn't they, us women count them as a necessity to hall around all our daily essentials. So it's unfair to think men have to solely depend on their pockets for the wads of cash, that they are hopefully planning to spend on us later on in the day!! (Just kidding!)

Stalked: Emma Miller, Model and Blogger.

Posted on Monday, 24 November 2014

Please may I introduce you to the lovely Emma, a world famous model, blogger, and actress. While studying at King's College London, Emma worked around the world, for major brands such as Avon, L’Oréal and Diane von Fürstenberg, as well as appearing in the hit American television series Entourage. Now who said girls can't multi-task!!!

As the sun set over Marylebone, I caught up with Emma for a little Q&A on her life in fashion, reality TV and where she shops and eats in the city.

Tell us about what you do and what you love about your job?

I'm a model, represented by Nevs Model Agency in London & Next Model Management in the US. In 2013 I launched my own fashion blog, dedicated to covering life in the fashion industry. Besides featuring my personal Style Diary and Style Guides, I report from the front row at international fashion weeks and get the behind-the-scene scoops from industry insiders.

Currently Obsessed: My Daniel Wellington

Posted on Friday, 21 November 2014

There is one accessory that I am incredibly fussy about and that is my watch. I have the grand total of two.. one is my Rolex that I wear when I am feeling professional and the other is my new found friend, Daniel Wellington, who I save for wicked weekends!!

If your darling other half is anything like mine, they would have asked 5 times already 'what do you want for Christmas' and if you're anything like me.. you won't have a bloody clue!!! 

To make you're decision a little bit easier, I have a little prezzy for you... for all my lovely readers a nice little 15% off these divine watches, read on for codes!

Back To Basic Stalking: Maiko Shibata. Black Is The New Black

Posted on Wednesday, 19 November 2014

There's a fine line between being dressed all in black and looking like a goth or being dressed all in black and looking on-trend and fabulous!! 

My latest stalk, Maiko Shibata from Paris gets it spot on, the reason being she has played around with textures of black rather than the colour itself. I'm sure you'll agree the oversized sweater with the leather A-line skirt works to a tee.
