Kate Bush: Then & Now

anabela of fieldguided tweeted about the music video for kate bush’s hounds of love the other day, remarking on how rad her look was (the blazer, the hair, the lips) and if i could make it current. challenge accepted, anabela.

this is sort of contemporary take on kate’s whole country librarian look. so many girls are actually rocking this vibe these days, which is rad. i had to make the lipstick revlon – what kind of eighties girl wouldn’t have used revlon, right? you can’t really see her skirt or shoes in the video, but i think this is a pretty fair interpretation.

antonio marras a/w 2011

um, yes. i am very much down with this vibe.

antonio marras dedicated his autumn/winter 2011-12 collection to his mother – including a characteristically poetic ode to her in his show notes and a sepia, passport-sized photograph of her pinned to the front of them.

marni & missoni

i haven’t been covering the fall shows lately, mainly because i already overdosed so heavily on the new york & london fashion weeks. but i have been keeping an eye on them – and paid particular attention to the details at marni & missoni’s collections in milan. i have always had a soft spot for these two italian design houses, mostly because they are the favourites of my great friend amy who has the best taste of anyone i know (look out for her ‘things i like right now’ later this month.) so these are for you amz. this winter will be all about colour, are you okay with that?

this vibe

i know that a lot of the fashion i post is very bright and quite LOUD on the print scale, but mostly i tend to go for far more neutral colours in real life. black is a favourite… and jeans of course. prints wise mostly things that are pretty chilled. i also love just plain white, grey, navy, light denim blue, dark greens & browney / mustardey colours. i wish i could be more adventurous sometimes. i once stood in an h&m for literally 10 minutes hovering over an electric blue oversized sheer blouse. walked out of there empty handed, and regret it to this day. you idiot! why didn’t you buy that electric blue blouse? and so it went for the next 24 hours on the plane ride home.
