There’s Something about Denim..


If there was one item that caught my eye in Fashion Week last September it was this picture from Valentino SS14..so available now.  It seemed to encapsulate everything slightly different, slightly loose and rather wonderful.  The dropped waist is heaven and it’s the first time I’ve considered the maxi length in a long, long time.  I really thought they could be my designer purchase of the summer..



So imagine my shock when I discovered they were in fact flared trousers.  I love they are probably the only item of clothing I have ever seen that discourages thigh gap…it just looks so ugly on this style (the above pic just confirms).  But…would they be the ultimate sartorial choice? or would they lie forgotten in the wardrobe, too reminiscent of bad 70’s and something a clown might wear? I’m struggling..


I’m off to the South Bank now to see Alexa Chung’s talk at the Vogue Festival and feel the buzz..anyone else going??

LUX_5215.683x1024Would you wear this on a hot summers day?…Or even a spring one?

LUX_5226.683x1024Do the colours sing beach, sunshine and easy living?

LUX_5285.683x1024No? So who is the Emperor in his new clothes?


The punters? The magazines?..or the out of date fashion industry?
