Ooooo, how cute. Look, my nails are all covered in cute little characters. Awww, isn’t that sweet? They even match my book.
Ahem. I have a penchant for anything immature and child like. Honestly, the more ridiculous the better. I’m currently planning a superhero themed bathroom (much to everyone’s distaste)… I swear, it’s going to be awesome. The main focal point will be a clear ‘KAPOW’ shower curtain (I just need to find a place to make it because actually no one stocks proper superhero bathroom stuff… it’s all weird creatures I’ve never seen before).
Anyway, as you might know Meadham Kirchhoff is all the rage in London. After their ‘cute as a button’ ballerina x wild dancing girl show two seasons ago I was sold for life. As much as I’d like one of their adorable little kitty t-shirts and their big batting eyes cardigan*… I can’t bring myself to spend that sort of money on a T-shrt and cardigan. But, I can handle 7 quid for a pair of Nail Rocks from Topshop. Don’t believe what it says on the package though, they do not last 10 days and they aren’t easy to put on. It took Shini and I about an hour to get them on… and afterwards they still looked a bit like a mentally deranged child had gone mental with her stickers. I didn’t really care though because they are just SO FREAKING CUTE.
* hello, have you SEEN my eyelashes? Was this cardi not MADE FOR ME?
Got off to a slow start today. I didn’t have any shows and so decided to just take it easy and recover a little bit. Headed into Somerset House in the late afternoon to see the lovely Elizabeth Lau. Also spent some time in the courtyard people watching and laughing at Kit who got asked to have her photo taken with someone because they liked her psychedelic print combination so much (this isn’t a normal thing). There were loads of tourists around and so, shortly after, made a beeline for some nearby sushi.
Here’s a selection of photos from today. Just friends and photographers who were hanging out in the courtyard. The above chap had on the most insane outfit and was my absolute favourite. I think he photographs for Japanese Vice. Next is Lexie from My Labyrinth who was wearing some killer Alexander Wang heels. She is my go-to girl for backstage photography now and her site is one of my new favourites. Also included is Jennifer from Style East, Kit, and Imogen.[Gallery not found]
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.
