Orla Kiely

I joined the Bobbi Brown team backstage again, huge thanks to Irene, today at Orla Kiely. The look was a chic but laid back Bardot, smokey eye and subtle shimmer lip.

The show it’s self had a sexy-secretary cheeky nudge to it, one thing Kiely never fails to offer is a beautifully thought out show set. She put the girls to work 9-5, although in the most stylishly dressed office I have ever seen!

Bolzoni & Walsh

Tough biker girls, smouldering insouciantly in velvet and leathers, luxury basics at their best.

Keeping with the knitwear theme I wore Vivienne Westwood again, I also had these beautiful vintage sunglasses from TK Maxx for when the sun decided to put in an appearance! I was wearing my Comic Relief t-shirt although it was a bit to chilly to show it off.

Preview: Behind the Scenes – Shooting the Antipodium AW12 LookBook

Earlier in the year I was lucky enough to get the chance to hang out with the Antipodium team and watch them shoot the AW12 lookbook. It was a great chance to see the collection up close and see the models enjoy showing it off. All the models were great fun, going from chiseled-cheek bone heart breaker to goofball in one second flat. Here are some of my favourite images.

The collection entitled ‘Vermin’ takes influence from East London. the sprawling metropolis of old and new is unique from pie shops to artisan bakeries, launderettes and ateliers.┬á It is about opening your eyes to the beauty of things we see everyday. Slick, with a spots influence the collection has a rich palette of camel, tobacco, lilac and nude; contrasted with vibrant blue and green. Futuristic glossy plastic used for bomber jackets, against tactile faux fox fur highlight the industrial versus hyper-natural notion of the collection. The two feature prints are ‘Local birds’ a scan of the outstretched wings of pigeons and the ‘Eastenders’ view of the sprawling Thames.
