Some of my favourites from the Robinson Pfeffer SS11 pressday. That place makes me happy, the people, the way they run things… they had a Thai Royal masseuse come in for the day – I know it sounds like a lame attempt at a joke but they actually did, one that massages Cristiano Ronaldo. I’M SERIOUS OMG WHY ARE YOU LOOKING AT ME LIKE THAT. I tell you, that shoulder massage really made me feel like I was high. Not that I know how it feels to be high. I’m just going to guess it’s similar to when you’ve inhaled too much nail polish remover because that I’ve done way often. Oh is that why everything but my nails were painted the other day…

Hello lovelies! I may have been Missing In Action but I haven’t been Missing In Adventure, I have a lot up my sleeve and some down my throat, latter non-refundable though – can’t beat power digestion… but brace yourselves, there’s lots to come thisaway! My West London era is slowly coming to a close and I’ve been busy looking for twigs and grass for a new nest up in North London, hopefully the likes of Angel or Dalston, we’ll see where the Big Man takes me next.

Always love visiting Robbers and Pfeffmeister (Robinson Pfeffer) – the showroom is newly stocked with droolworthy SS’11 pieces already, but between you and me, I visit to watch Kyle & Andrea and kick eachother’s legs under the table and make your mom jokes over soy milk teas and Minties. They have this massive sense of humour and easygoingness that generates enough energy to power the entire showroom (and Hussein Chalayan’s studio next door), and there’s no question why the company’s a hit amongst London’s hippest. Other than that I’d like to have them as my older brother and sister – not denying of course that I may end up hanging head down from a tree at some point, but the hand-me-down wardrobe will be le schweeet.

If I ever had a chance to re-make my first few fashion choices, from buying my first Cosmopolitan magazine in 2006 to banishing all glittery sweaters from my ‘drobe, I’d liked to have first consulted Robinson Pfeffer for some damn good taste. Although of course, in 2006 the agency (events & PR) would’ve been a mere few flittering ideas, bubbling and brewing amidst the growing friendship of Kyle Robinson and Andrea Pfeffer until its hatching in 2008. I was invited to their showroom in Old Street last week, and other than the fact that I got lost finding the entrance and almost pressed on Hussein Chalayan’s studio (?) doorbell, it was a wonderful (and educational) opportunity. Boy does it teach you how to think beyond the trends. The two were so kind, crazy and quirky… well of course! The brands were from all over the world: New Zealand, Canada, UK, Japan… My personal favourite was the Zambesi pleated skirt with the catflap-ish hole, and the mini trench by Alpha60. Well, I’m not going to spoil this glee by looking up prices or anything for now.
