What’s in the bag?: Olivia is carrying a camera in her bag. Actually, I’m pretty sure she said cameras (plural). This is understandable as she’s a street style photographer and a normal photographer and a photographer of crafty things. Look. Basically Olivia is just awesome, so read her blogs okay?

This morning I woke up dead tired. I rushed over to Anouk’s place to grab her and head to the first show of the day – Ruby. Well, it was really two shows in one. The first being Liam, a new brand under the Ruby label (much like Madame Hawke – which, as of next Winter, is defunct). The venue was amazing – a huge shed in Grey Lynn, set up with an impressive array of lights and all sorts (the show was being live-streamed in stores). It was, in my opinion, the most international looking set up this week. (Big ups to The Creators who put that together!) Liam opened with a spotlight on the logo on the wall, and Chelsea Jade Metcalf and her collaborative – Watercolours played live.
My favourite thing from the show? The above blue cobalt suit. I could definitely do one of those in my wardrobe. (That camel coat wouldn’t go amiss either…)
Here’s what I saw (from the front row! Holla!) from the Liam collection – Ruby collection coming soon(ish)!:
Harriet’s wearing all Comme des Garcons (coat and pants) and Comme Homme shoes! “I like dressing like a house, and being comfortable, and mens/unisex clothes. I was wearing a long sleeve mens Comme top underneath, and a mens watch!”
All Comme Everything!
I’m not gonna lie. I went into the Jimmy D show today feeling panicked. Panicked and rushed. And distracted. The amount of people who have said ‘hi’ to me today only to be confronted with a weird blank stare, or just plain being ignored, is ridiculous. It’s 2:10pm and I’m feeling pretty behind so it’s safe to say if you come and talk to me today, it’s unlikely you will get a coherent response.
That out of the way, I did sit through the Jimmy D show and I managed to enjoy myself. My favourite thing from the show? The harnesses and the lingerie. The harnesses I would never be able to pull off myself, but the underwear is definitely on my radar for next winter.
See some of what I saw, below:
Ella is one of my favourite girls to take photos of. Nobody has owned the last year like she has. And she’s such a nice girl. I think she’ll go far. Anyway, no more gushing. I quickly caught Ella after the Ruby show today – it’s a rare occasion that you get time to snap her because she’s booked so many shows this week. Doesn’t she look marvellous? Such a cute dress. And those cheekbones. And that hair?! Oh wait, I’m gushing again.
I’m sorry. I’ve fully dropped the ball today guys. I forgot to bring my mouse, my trackpad on my laptop is screwed and I have a gazillion photos from the Ruby/Liam show to go through and put up. I think we’re gonna have to get a bit out of order and post Ruby later. If you’ve been wondering what has been going on in iPhone quality photos – check out the tumblr. There’s pics from Celine Rita, and I’ve just uploaded a low-res video of the finale of that show (see above).
I’ve got Jimmy D to go to in about 5 minutes, then Lonely Hearts and Trelise Cooper before I get any kind of posting break but bear with me!!! Until then, enjoy these hilarious photos of Samantha Shorter and Anouk Rondel. Those girls know how to make fashion week fun.
