trending: HOCKEY

So sports luxe in nothing new, especially now more than ever with fashion harking back to the oversized and heavily branded sportswear of the 90s. There has been a lot of buzz surrounding baseball with nylon bombers, letterman jackets with contrast sleeves and baseball tees but now I've realised it's all about hockey. Hockey jerseys being worn as a fashion statement always remind me of that iconic press image of an ultra swagged out and hyped up 2pac leaving court, defiant, and spitting at reporters, in his Red Wings jersey. Designers such as Casely Hayford and Alexander Wang can this year clearly be seen as drawing on hockey as a source of inspiration for their designs both for men and women. I think it's a cool look, what do you think?

cut it out

Since these cult Balenciaga beauties emerged last year, they have spawned an array of copy cats and cut out boots are the shoe du jour. The Balenciaga originals really epitomise a contemporary take on 90s grunge perfection! Just as well with this post apocalyptic weather we are having - ahem snow in April (today) the cut out boot cannot decide whether it is a winter or summer shoe, ideal for this freak weather. I love the chunkiness but Jeffrey Campbell and Senso have created a more elegant and wearable take on the fabulous cut out boot!

the eye has to travel

One chilly Saturday when Lol and I were feeling jaded with the London party scene, we took our danced out feet off to one of our favourite spots: The Curzon Mayfair. Armed with cosy snacks of the sweet and salty variety we went to watch one of our beloved fashion documentaries. The Eye has to Travel is the story of Diana Vreeland, my new favourite Grande-Dame of fashion since Grace Coddington. Similar to Grace Coddington, Vreeland had a wonderful creative eye and was responsible for many legendary fashion spreads. An incredibly larger than life character bursting with humor and charm, her interviews were laugh-out-loud funny but also interspersed with incredible original footage and some very famous talking heads. Born in Belle Epoque Paris, she lived through some of the most glamorous stylish eras in all of the worlds most fashion forward cities. She started her career as a columnist at Harper's Bazaar and went on to become editor-in-chief at Vogue. Vreeland reinvented herself as this darling of the fashion crowd and had a huge celebrity following which went from fashion to Hollywood. Full off beautiful imagery and witty one-liners the film is a must see and a reminder of all the fabulous people and trends in past decades!

rolling stone

I got you, ooooo
Baby I got you, ooooo
Until you're used to my face
And my mystery fades
I got you
So baby love me
Before they all love me
Until you won’t love me
Because they all left me
I’ll be different
I think I’ll be different
I hope I’m not different
And I hope you’ll still listen
But until then
Baby I got you
I got you
Girl I still got you
I got you
