Karen Walker showed A/W 2013 ‘New Rose’ a week ago, I’m still obsessed.

Posted on February 18, 2013

I want to be a Karen Walker girl. There you go. Unabashedly and without shame, I want to be one of these girls. I feel like this most seasons when I see the runway images from Karen’s New York Fashion Week shows, and this time is no different. In fact, this season – Northern Hemisphere Autumn-Winter 2013 – the desire to be that cool, long-haired, quirky-casual girl is at its peak. I’m coveting a lot from this collection, ‘New Rose’ – the oversized trenches, dark green knits, black and white tartan and brown tweeds and the pink floral (is it floral?) everything – especially the quilted coat. The full-legged pants look amazing (perhaps not on a short girl like me, but on these girls…

My favourite looks from Calvin Klein S/S 2013.

Posted on October 2, 2012

When you’re busy and doing fashion week and travelling and not posting you get way behind. Super behind. I have vague recollections of promising images from the Stolen Girlfriends Club New Zealand Fashion Week show, for instance. You may or may not have noticed I never posted them. Same with pictures from Calvin Klein’s New York Fashion Week show. Broken promises, broken promises. The thing about blogging (for me, at least), is the timeliness of it all. If you don’t get things up quick enough, it’s like there’s no point anymore because everyone would’ve gotten over it or seen it elsewhere – short attention spans and all. Anyway, in order to rectify this, I’ve posted images of some of my favourite looks from Calvin…

NYFW: My favourite outfits from the Karen Walker show.

Posted on September 13, 2012

As you can see, I was lucky enough to attend Karen Walker’s NYFW show a couple of days ago. I was even luckier to be able to sit front row and get some clear snaps of my favourite pieces. My absolute, absolute favourite is the above mustard suit – I don’t know exactly if I could pull it off but someone must do it – the slight flare on the pants? Pretty amazing. Damn I hope that colourway comes to the Southern hemisphere. Coming in a close second is the dress with the bow at the back (a few photos down) – I feel like it’s going to be a huge seller come Feb/March. Check out my other, other favourites below (including those amazing…

Good Morning readers! Today I am making a spontaneous trip to the Polo so no proper blogging until much later, if at all. Oh well! Just thought I should let you know. Anyway, one thing I did see that I think that you should all check out (if you haven’t already) is this set of backstage photos from Karen Walker’s AW12 show at New York Fashion Week, shot by who I would consider the best backstage show photographer out there: Sonny Vandevelde. I’ve been backstage at a few shows with Sonny before, and no one seems to be able to get the models going (or intimidate the crap out of me) like he does. Like all his photography, these Karen Walker photos are full…

Reasons why I wish I was at NYFW: #1 – Rachel Antonoff.

Posted on September 13, 2011

Yeah I’m in Paris but I’m not gonna lie – I’ve got some New York Fashion Week FOMO right now. After the high and rush and energy of New Zealand Fashion Week, it would have been pretty cool to do New York, but alas it cannot be. Maybe next time. Until then, here is the first reason I wish I was in the big apple right now: Rachel S/S¬†presentation. Okay, I know it’s a bit pre-emptive and silly to say that I knew I was going to love the collection before I’d even seen it, but I did (I tried to force Isaac to go along and send me to the minute updates from it but alas he would not) and I do. So…
