Recently I had the pleasure of getting involved with 55DSL, Diesel's younger and very cool brand in an advertorial for ASOS magazine. I've always been a big fan of their clothing as it's rock chic with a touch of street. Check out their latest collection here.
So, for an entire afternoon while I was stalking the fashion fabulous of Notting Hill, I was also being stalked myself by the 55DSL team! The advertorial was my first ever *excited face* - and what better to have it in than the awesome ASOS magazine, read the full article here!
I'm obsessed with this parka from 55DSL, find it here.
What I love about this brand is that not only do they have the coolest clothes but they also support up and coming artists, musicians, bloggers and performers, you may remember a while back I went to an event in which they were promoting artist Benjamin Murphy and DJ Toddla T .
Their latest collection they have out is awesome, my favourite items have to be this parka, and these t-shirts which are all on my ASOS wish list already!
Full Collection HERE.

After a rather late night the previous night at the opening of the new London club, Ruski's, there was only one fashion brand that would pull me out of my hungover state and to another party and that is the coolest French dudes on the block - Eleven Paris!!
You may remember that I blogged about these guys ages ago and am still obsessed to this day. The evening was filled with champagne, awesome clothes, and music- what more could you ask for? This jacket is one of many I have set my heart on.
Loove these jeans!
Roll over Kenzo .. Eleven Paris have created the coolest sweaters and t-shirts revolved around tigers and sharks! Check them out here.
Eleven Paris came over to London less than a year ago after becoming a huge hit in France, they now have a store on Carnaby Street, a prime shopping area! They are also stocked in Selfridges and ASOS.
If you haven't yet seen their AW13 collection, go, run, run run straight to their store or shop online. If you love this blog you will love these bad boys!!
STALK THE STALKER ON
The reason I stalked this particular little lady was plan and simple, her hat and that white coat, and red lips! Her look and overall style was awesomely confident, no surprise she was Italian.
Martina is from South Italy, a place called Monopoli. With her sister she owns a vintage shop called Naftaliba Lab.
Her favourite designers is Marni but she wears mostly all vintage.

I stalked Chris at Somerset House, who was out snapping fashions fabulous on the most gorgeous vintage camera.
My 5 minutes with Chris Pollard:
What do you love about your job? What do you love about your job? And why do you choose to use vintage cameras for your photography.
One of the main things I love about my job is actually getting to chat to really creative and inspired people, feeding off their interest and their knowledge, it keeps me wanting to push my own work and concepts further. I shoot on Vintage film stock, as I think the industry has recently been over saturated with Digital photography! I don't condone Digital work as it's what feeds the evolution of our industry, but I think maintaining the use of analogue reminds the instagram-age of where that filter they apply actually originates from! I am also so drawn to the tactile nature of Polaroid and Film. Being able to hold a photo in your hand (in which you are never entirely sure if it will work until it is developed) really gives me a buzz when a mistake in the film, or a light leak creates an result that I wasn't expecting.
What's your favourite camera?
Favourite camera - A Sanderson Quater plate made Wood and Brass! its about 90-95 years old! Getting something Pre-World War 1 to capture images feels quite special.
Not so much a designer, but a Savile Row tailoring house: H Huntsman - they have really tried to experiment with shooting suits and tweed this season.
Pam Hogg! Great use of ballet and dance on the catwalk and the taxidermy head wear / slightly macabre militaria aprons and wartime armbands were great touches.
5 items you can you not live without?
1.Paper-based Diary...If I wrote it in my phone I would never turn up at the right time or date for anything
2. Good Stationary...just makes writing useless notes that I will probably forget much more enjoyable
3. Tailored Suit...Weddings, Shows, Parties, Work...what ever the occasion, as long as it fits perfectly it will work
4. Emergency snacks...running between shows and everything else requires a lot of energy!
5. A Camera..Doesn’t have to be analogue, but a way to capture memories is always important!
