Woke up this morning to the sound of rain pounding on the window. Slept in and then headed to Somerset House while feebishly attempting to juggle a huge clutch bag, coffee, umbrella, and oyster card. Arrived to find the photogs were out in monumental force: Garance Dore, the Sartorialist, Altamira, Jak & Jil, Vanessa Jackman, Street Peeper… ‘why hello, is it me you’re looking for?’ I asked as I sauntered past flipping my hair. Highlights of the day included being photographed by Vanessa (who I love), meeting the lovely girl behind State of Sunday, and being introduced to Mary Katrantzou’s mother by Matthew (I said, ‘you must be so proud’… uh, duh). Spent most of the day getting soaked out in the courtyard (though I did go to the J. JS Lee and John Rocha show – photos below) and topped it all off by having a big burger and vanilla milkshake at Byrons for dinner.
12:30 – J. JS Lee
Seriously, it’s a wee bit too late for extensive amounts of words but let’s just say that J. JS Lee was good… and has got me trying to figure out how I can attach a jacket to the front of my shirt, while searching ebay for long grey dresses and strands of pearls.[Gallery not found]
3:15 – John Rocha
Abbey Lee Kershaw, who didn’t walk a single show in NY, opened and closed the John Rocha show. Insanely beautiful. The same goes for the entire collection. The slightly sheer textured details on the black dresses were some of my favourite details.[Gallery not found]
Bye for now, need my pillow.
