Fashion Month is soon upon us once more, so why not lead up to it with a look back at Men’s Fashion Week just gone?
One of the greatest pleasures was to bump into fashion journalist Yu Masui at Belstaff during LCM.
I’ve been happily following his intstagram posts for some time, and am thus a big fan of his sartorial choices.
Always a bit kooky, mixing and matching with apparent effortlessness, he’s sure brighten up the streets wherever he may find himself!
Cant wait to see what ‘Yu is wearing’ at LFW xxx
Or perhaps she does.
Im guessing she cares, and that that’s exactly why she has pink hair.
Because it looks like delicious candy-floss and brightens up everyone’s day.
At least mine.
Fabulous running into her at Pause Online’s presentations during LCM.
All hail Leanne Bebbie and her happy-lovely-dreamy tresses.
The vibrantly gorgeous Tahmina Begum has a style I thoroughly adore, every time I see this raven-head beauty I feel instantly aesthetically fulfilled. Well done this girl, well done. Tahmina co-edits XXY Magazine, and blogs over at Maximalistmina – check them both out for sartorial and general aesthetic inspo. This illustration is from when I bumped into her at LFW in Feb, and her outfit is everything I love; a bit of kooky, a lot of playful, most pretty. She is the queen of championing up-and-coming design, and this outfit features Phiney Pet sequin tasseled jacket and Cassandra Verity Green wave top/skirt, two designers I have now fallen head over heals for! Always accessorising to perfection (note the gorge hand jewellery, choker/cherry necklace and eye-heart sticker), and occasionally joining me in the eye-dot makeup = more reasons to be even more partial to her charms. Can’t wait to meet up with this lady soon to see what she’ll be wearing xx
Finally I’ve managed to get at least two outfits done for you guys, two fabulous representatives of the LFW day one Streetstyle fest that took place friday 20th Feb. One outfit from the legendary and I must say very charming Larry Tee, of New York music and club scene fame. Larry also runs a fashion brand called Tzuji, and the latest collection called, deftly, Electro Clash (the musical genre he named a few years back), is superbly covetable and i think this jumper, which is everything, has just gone to the top of my (and every stylist around’s) wish list.
Blonde Bombeshell artist Sarah Kinder aka @vera_london rocked 80’s vintage glam at LFW day 2. The simplistic glamour of this suit and turtleneck is given just the right amount of attitude with a touch of spiky peroxide and fierce footwear. The smidgen of tortoise shell, gold and red lippy is a delightful cherry-on-top, and I assure you, I’m not the only one who spotted a true individual manifested sartorially here, she was still busy posing as i left!

Magà Moura has the ability to brighten up the gloomiest of days. Not that LFW Day 1 was particularly dark or morose, however, when Fashion Week is all over, and we feel the withdrawal of shiny-new-things-every-day,scroll through @magavilhas on instagram and smile. Her collection of bonkers earrings make me particularly happy. The Brasilian beauty works as a fashion PR, ‘Cool Hunter’ and Style Blogger. Tired of the ‘sameness’ often found in the sartorial world, she values and craves originality and eccentricity, and lives by her word. Which is wonderful for us! May the kooky acid candy fest continue! xx
Where? Tottenham Court Road station, London.
Public transport can be hard work, – dusty, clammy, crowded. So make sure you brighten up your tube or bus journey by wearing a kick-ass outfit like this gal. She definitely makes it into the FABULOUS category. In fact, this lovely lady was the first ever outfit i snapped after deciding to start a style blog, and it lends itself remarkably well to illustration, there’s wool, a dress, a scarf, a shawl, coral tights, patent shoes, the textures and colours, and lets not forget the prints, – it should be chaotic – but this girl has styled an outfit before! With equal measures of skill and magic she has created an ensemble with enough quirk and cuteness to rival a box full of kittens with stick-on moustaches. Well done young lady, your style made my day.
