Edward Finney A/W 11

 These images are from Edward Finney's A/W 2011 collection, this collection makes me think of Landed Gentry and riding horses in the good old days.

But also, how amazing is the first black dress? I'm putting dibs on that for my wedding dress for sure, now I just need to find a willing victim/groom...

The model in these images is the lovely Sophie, who I did a shoot with a couple of weeks ago for my friend Kimchi Slaw, most of which I spent wondering where I recognised Sophie from...

Present and Correct

I have an unhealthy obsession with stationery, bordering on the perverse in fact, so I thought I'd share one of my favourite websites to have a perv on.

These images are from Present and Correct, a lovely little website with the best pencil styling I've ever seen. Each image is well thought out and styled beautifully, with insane attention to detail. Present and Correct offer vintage, handmade and sourced stationery, and I love all of them... My housemate Lois and I often sit in the living room poring over websites selling envelopes, you should have seen our faces when we heard Liberty were opening a stationery department. I'll be in London in a few weeks and I've already allocated time to visit it!

Visit Present and Correct here. Other websites I like to perv on include Kikki K, SORT and Kate's Paperie.

Myrto Stamou

I blogged about Myrto Stamou way back in 2009 when she showed off her collection at Graduate Fashion Week, now she's an actual grown up and top notch, polished designer. 

This is her A/W 11 collection, and it's just a little bit stunning. The fit of the leather skirts are absolutely perfect and paired with the drape of the softer, finer fabrics, the whole look makes one gorgeous outfit.

For more info and images, visit her NJAL Profile.

A New Kind of Love

Ftape teamed up with On|Off to create a portfolio of rather stunning images, featuring designers such as Ashley Isham, Bryce Aime, Charlie le Mindu and my personal favourite Hasan Hejazi.

The images were shot by Stefan Milev and styled by Sasha Rainbow, I loves them.

I've only posted a few images so make sure you visit the website to have a proper look through them all, they're worth it! I'm looking forward to seeing a lot more editorials from Ftape...

Gisele Ganne

I love jewellery but barely ever wear it, because as soon as I put it on I feel like I'm dressing up and I don't look right so it's immediately cast aside. However, I often lust over pieces online thinking 'If only I had that, I'd wear it every day...', even though I know  wouldn't...

These pieces are by Gisele Ganne and fall directly into the lustworthy category. I love the connected rings and delicate chains against the furry bits and juxtaposed with the florals.

Each collection has a morbid yet beautiful feel to it, ranging from mourning jewellery to divorce jewellery.

For more info and images, visit her website.

p.s. If any designers are reading this, I'm looking for pieces for a shoot in April so if you want to be featured, drop me an email to iliketweet@gmail.com

Sophie Hulme lusting

I've spent a large portion of today lusting over the accessories in Sophie Hulme's A/W 11 collection, I'm a massive fan of simplicity and satchel-esque bags and these fit the bill rather perfectly.

I love the bright red number and can just imagine filling it with all my silly little unnecessary things and pretending it's full of terribly important things. Which is your favourite?

For more info and images, visit her website.

p.s. Currently excitingly waiting for the Latitude Festival to be announced, who else is coming? I'm WELL excited.

Yan To A/W 11

Yan To is a designer I post about each season, because his designs are constantly changing form and shape but keeping his design ideals. 

These are images from his A/W11 collection and I'm very much enjoying the swathes of velvet and leather. There are some more beautiful pieces in the collection but the model looked so painfully thin that I didn't want to look at her arms anymore! 

This collection is making me want to find all of my velvety things and wear them all at once, I might actually do that...

For more info and images, visit Yan To's website.

Beautifully draped and designed pieces that blur the line between feminine and masculine. Using masculine cuts and fabric but feminine draping and fit, dM/ (they use initials rather than names...) creates almost perfect garments.

Check out the website here for more info and images.

p.s. If anyone is around Preston tomorrow evening and fancy coming to an exhibition of our work, just drop me an email and I'll add you to the guestlist!

American Vintage

(Jacket - American Vintage at The Dressing Room, T Shirt - Topshop, Jeans - Primark, Shoes - Office)

The lovely people over at The Dressing Room sent me over a little, grey, cotton jacket by American Vintage that is perfect for layering up or for when it's a little bit warmer...

American Vintage offer amazing quality basics, perfect for layering and putting together. They are a French brand that mix up uncomplicated basics with signature US stylings, I kind of wish my wardrobe was a little bit more full of things like this rather than the bursting at the seams wardrobe full of stuff I never wear that I have at the moment...

I also thought it would be a good excuse to show my face a bit more and I'm wearing jeans, I NEVER wear jeans!

p.s. My Ebay sale is nearing the end, have a gander and help me streamline my wardrobe!

Lilly Marthe Ebener

I've become a little bit obsessed with imagining massive amounts of knitted things draped around myself in recent weeks, since my foray into massive snood-ing...

These are some of the most beautiful knitted pieces I've seen in a while, and are far cry from the usual hand knitted cardigans you see around the place. Only 100% natural Alpaca wool is used, making them look like the snuggliest things on Earth. As it says on the site; it's where the body ends and nature begins...
