Kate Moss Designs Jewellery Collection for Topshop

Kate Moss has designed her first jewellery collection for Topshop. The collection, which includes on-trend seventies inspired jewellery from Kate’s personal collection, will hit stores from 2 November.

Known for her love of vintage costume jewellery, the highlights of Kate Moss’ collection include a striking cocktail ring with Swarovski stones and oxidised metal. If the success of her clothing collaborations with Topshop is anything to go by this will be a sell-out.

Off-Duty Model - Abbey Lee

I love the off-duty model look, it's so effortlessly chic and unpolished. This image recently caught my eye, it's of the beautiful Abbey Lee and she looks a-may-zing! Love the long skirt, metallic jacket and sweeping fringe. The guy behind certainly likes her look.

Leather Trousers Wish List

I've been dreaming of leather trousers recently, Isabel Marant's leather biker ones to be precise. These trousers are amazing and have been seen on the likes of Gwyneth Paltrow, Elle Macpherson and Gemma Arterton. Unfortunately the £1500 price tag is a little steep for me so I shall be channeling some on the high street. Any good recommendations?

Love it, or hate it, the hipster look is everywhere at the moment. From the coloured denim to the canvas shopper and the high top trainers to the high top fade hair.

London Fashion Week S/S 11, Day Six

London Fashion Week S/S 11 ended on menswear showcasing the best in emerging British design and I went to see E.Tautz, MAN and James Long.

E.Tautz presentation:

I started the day with the E.Tautz presentation who is such a great talent – as well as being exceedingly handsome. The label produces such beautiful classic tailoring which really highlights what London is renowned for. We have some really exciting British tailors coming through at the moment what with A.Sauvage, Rake and E.Tautz.

A.Sauvage designs:

It is really noticeable that the attendance of shows was far smaller on menswear day than throughout the womenswear days, which is such a shame. What LFW menswear day needs is a big name to come back to London, make a stand and encourage others to do the same so that it begins to become a day that everyone wants to attend.

London Fashion Week S/S 11, Day Five

On day five at London Fashion Week I saw Clements Ribeiro and Issa London. The turnout for Clements was low with many front-row seats unfilled. The fashionistas were obviously feeling the effects of too many late night parties and early mornings.

I enjoyed Clements nonetheless and it was a welcome return back to the catwalk after five years away. The show included knits, floral prints and a spring colours, and I particularly liked the top knot hair.

Issa finished womenswear at London Fashion Week S/S 11 with a bang. The collection was full of jewel colours, draping, turbans, jeweled sandals and large earrings. The exotic inspired pieces were a roaring success!

London Fashion Week S/S 11, Day Four

Day four was my favourite day of London Fashion Week S/S 11 with David Koma, Holly Fulton, Erdem, Christopher Kane and Roksanda Ilincic all on the line-up.

The day started with a back-to-back catwalk show from David Koma and Holly Fulton. Both incredibly impressive with Koma staging a ballet inspired show with tight bodices, waspish waists and full tutu skirts. I want!

Holly Fulton then continued the show with her signature geometric prints. The collection was inspired by cruise and the epitome of 80s glamour, Jackie Collins.

Erdem's ballet russe inspired show was beautiful, from the marque to the gorgeous setting in a Bloomsbury square. I loved the plaited hair!

Next up was the Christopher Kane catwalk show which sister Tammie described as ‘Princess Margaret on acid’. Now that’s a sight I’d like to see...

Finally, the day ended with the Serbian beauty Roksanda Ilincic. Roksanda was part of the seventies resurgence that we’ve been seeing at LFW and the show consisted of long jewel coloured silk dresses with flowing headscarves.

London Fashion Week S/S 11, Day Three

On day three at London Fashion Week S/S 11 I saw the Mary Katrantzou, Julien Macdonald, Antonio Berardi and Richard Nicoll shows which were all stunning.

Mary Katrantzou kicked off the day at the old Eurostar terminal in Waterloo station, the most incredible venue with an arched glass exterior and high ceilings. The acoustics were great for the upbeat catwalk tunes.

Backstage at Mary Katrantzou:

Mary was inspired by interiors for this collection and designed the infamous lampshade skirt which I loved! For those fond of Katrantzou’s prints they were not let down, the show was full of her signature bright graphic prints.

Next, was Julien Macdonald which I almost missed completely, so I snuck in the back and watched the models snake round the rows of fashionistas. It was quite possibly my favourite show from the week – super sexy! Take a look at the video for it in action.

Antonio Berardi gave us an elegant and romantic collection. My favourite moment was when the opening bars of the Charlie and the Chocolate Factory song ‘Pure Imagination’ were played just before the models walked – pure nostalgia!

Finally, the day finished with fashion favourite Richard Nicoll. I spied Hannah Marshall sneaking in late to gain a front row view. Nicholl was inspired by ‘minimal glamour’ and boldly stated after the show: ‘What we sell is dresses’. Keep them coming!
