Currently suppressing the urge to take the laptop into the bed and acquaint myself of the art of endurance, but I fear it’ll be like man in stripclub, with wife. I’d forgotten Fashion Week is five days of tightrope-walking, the dismount both pleasing and excruciating and the only applause is from the shoes, sarcastic…slow…claps. They know they’re too damn expensive to THROW IN A BURNING OIL TANK. I will now buy cheaper shoes that can shred my feet and then I’ll express wrath by setting fire to them. Yeah, that sounds like good logic.

Day one was a good start, the wind tasted like winter but there were sunny spells that just lit up the courtyard like an incubator and then the colourful birds started hatching. Don’t you love it how all throughout the year magazines report the latest trend yet during fashion week no one really wears trend? It might just be London, but I didn’t see a herd of sheep(skin jackets) nor a pack of camel(coats) entering the show tent. Best thing about LFW: Overdosing on coffee with the girls and bumming around the courtyard, high on one caffeine cocktail or another, making new friends and shooting* old ones.

*Lined up against a wall, or sometimes just while they talk… candid is best, really.

Thank you Joseph Piper for taking my outfit shots!

  3. goodness knows why i’m up right now – no social reason, just general insomnia. but your posts are always so cheering despite the author being potentially both exhausted and in pain! love you for that.
    and guess what, you might yet have unintentionally worn/ forcasted a trend in your cut-out jacket which i assumed was some early-release topshop gift since they had a clear copy going on in one of their unique show looks today!

  5. Ah, I see the paparazzi is treating you well – you look fantastic! Maybe you should wear those shoes for the entirety of LFW – by the end, your feet will be numb to pain. Your candids are great, I am always in awe of the clarity of your pictures. Or perhaps I’ve just gotten used to my crappy one, where I find more and more dead pixels in every shot.

    you are gorgeous!! London is where we’ll see the most extreme fashionistas, although they may be a bit too avant garde for me, I’m still looking forward to more candids!!

  25. After scrolling through the photos, it was great to see what you wrote on trends. My eyes came to a full stop and a long pause on the image of the girl with the leopard tiny purse and bowl cut and scarves. I thought it was just an incredibly awesome look.

    So, thanks for capturing an environment where people’s individual style doesn’t just change with the mandates issued from Vogue editors!!

    And yeah that jacket is great and you know it, but I was so excited to see you rocking the knee-length cut off! Always was one of my favorite looks to wear in the early 2000s that is not very common to see these days. (At least around where I live and on the blogs I read…)

  27. Wonderful pictures & girl, I saw your shoes today, so no pity from me… I’m always amazed that the good old traditionals ‘black’ and ‘leopard’ are still/forever strong. Guess fashion just moves too quickly to really care about trends.

  34. it’s been a while! oh you look lovely as alwayss – the jacket is awesome, they look like halfway punched out hole punches (erm i wonder if that’s how it was done?) – jealous of you being at lfw – somehow it seems more exciting than nyfw??? maybe it’s just because it’s further away. oh well. one day i’ll make it there!
