My Week In Fashion: We Get A Sneak Preview Of Roland Mouret x Banana Republic
GALLERY >> My Week In Fashion
1. Roland Goes Bananas
Roland Mouret hosted a dinner for the fashion press last night to present his much anticipated collection for Banana Republic. We enjoyed a sneak preview of the collection, which is available in just a few weeks. Jam -packed with the designer’s signatures, the range is made up of 25 pieces. There are pencil and jersey dresses galore, tailored jackets and skirts which will no doubt have his devotes queuing to snap up something for their wardrobes.
2. Next Is Super
Next celebrated Christmas last week by hosting a show to present their wintry fashions to the press. Sharing the catwalk with the cutest of kids around was a supermodel or two! Jordan Dunn, Jacquetta Wheeler Betty Adewole and Anja Rubik were amongst this impressive cast.
3. Mary Katrantzou: The Devil Is In The Detail
I’m in the middle of styling the shoots for Grazia’s Big Fashion Issue and the cupboard is filling up with such wonderful things. I’m just amazed by the workman ship on this Mary Katrantzou gown that has just arrived in time for my shoot tomorrow. Collages of heraldic emblems and other quirky symbols (notice the ‘information’ sign on this dress?!) come alive in sequins, beads, gems and embroidery.
4. Lunching With Louboutin
The Dolls House in Hoxton Square was the location of last week’s lunch hosted by Christian Louboutin, thrown to celebrate the company’s new bag range ‘passage’. Surrounded by the lovely bags, we dined like kings, and the best bit? They lent me these glittery bow courts to wear to the event!
5. Oh I Do Like To Be Beside The Seaside
When the sun is shining it makes me thankful that I live by the sea – it makes the long commute into the city totally worthwhile. While the evenings are still light, this is my view on the walk home from the station. It would be rude not to indulge in an ice cream or two now and again, wouldn’t it.
