Dominic Jones Jewellery

I love the latest collection by young London-based jewellery designer Dominic Jones. The collection features rose thorns and I particularly love the rose gold thorn stud earrings, necklace and knuckle duster ring, worn by model du jour Alice Dellal below.

The Aviator Trend

The aviator trend looks set to be huge this A/W, and the aviator jacket with shearling lining is the must-buy item of the season. I love the toughness of this look which is contrasted with the shearling lining, perfect for the dressed down look. The flying style would look great teamed with a military shirt and neutral shades.

Acne has produced a beautiful stone coloured aviator-style jacket and flying hat for A/W (below), I bought a similar vintage flying hat in Buenos Aires earlier this year. Natalie Hartley (below), from the go-to style blog, Natalie Hartley wears, has recently been sporting many fantastic pieces from the aviator trend and gives many outfit ideas. Asos.com also has more affordable pieces if you’re looking to channel the trend on the high-street.

Acne at LFW S/S 11

London Fashion Week (17 – 22 September) is quickly approaching and with the release of the designer schedule a fortnight ago, I’ve begun to get really excited about what S/S 11 has in store for us.

It’s been a busy year for Swedish label Acne. Not only have they opened a flagship store in London’s Mayfair but they have also announced that they will be showing at LFW for the first time! Acne is one of my favourite labels, I have a real thing about Swedish style at the moment, and so I am really looking forward to seeing what they have in stall for us. If the S/S 11 Pre-Collection is anything to go by, it’s going to be good.

Lovebox Sunday

Lovebox was incredible this year, we had a cloudless sky, an electric atmosphere and fantastic performances. New Young Pony Club showed us why they are king of nu rave, We Have Band gave a stellar performance channeling Goldfrapp and CSS, Hot Chip set the crowd alight to 'One Night Stand' (a personal fave) and Grace Jones closed the night in the usual shocking fashion with a multitude of capes and headpieces whilst wearing a corset and G-string. All in all a fantastic day of sun, cider and sequins galore - the uniform of Grace Jones fans.

A Single Man

A Single Man. Perhaps the most stylish film I have ever seen, but could I expect any less from Tom Ford? Colin Firth’s glasses are the star of the show for me.

Janelle Monae

One of my favourite performers at the moment is Janelle Monáe, not only does she produce great music but also has incredible style. You may have heard her with Outcast’s Big Boi recently with the track ‘Tightrope’ (below).

I caught Janelle Monáe recently at Hoxton Bar and Grill and she just blew everyone away with her electric performance.

However, it’s her style that I love more than anything. Monáe manages to work the androgynous look so well and in so many different forms, with masculine tux jackets, crisp white shirts, cravats and brogues.

Wish list: Angel Jackson

Top of my wish list at the moment is an Angel Jackson bag. I love with the gladiator studded tote (top) and the feather lianto.

Tilt 2 Pop-Up Exhibition, Shoreditch

On Thursday night I went to the launch night of the Tilt 2 pop-up exhibition in Shoreditch which was showcasing work from several new and exciting artists. The exhibition was extremely varied in both medium, subject and design, and I was really impressed with the work on show. The last night of the exhibition is tonight so get down there quick! My favourite piece of the exhibition by Foals illustrator Tinhead. I love the contrast between the innocent and dark nature of this piece. Tinhead also created the Foals 'Antidotes' album cover below.

London Fields Lido

I'm on a health kick at the moment, and because I don't like running (small attention span) and I don't want to join a gym as (commitment issues), I decided to start swimming again. I went to London Fields lido for the first time last night and I loved it!

My big dilemma though was whether I should opt for a bikini or a swimming costume to swim lengths!? Now, my thinking was that a bikini, which wins hands-down in the style stakes against my school girl speedo number, might be deemed inappropriate by fellow swimmers. So, I opted for a sensible one-piece, only to find that the whole pool was full of halter bikinis (and even a few bandeaus) leaving me scuttling in and out of the pool in shame. Next time I know which look I'll be sporting. .htm
