Scintillating scarves...

“One should either be a work of art or wear a work of art.”
                                                                      – Oscar Wilde
I am the latter when it comes to scarves/stoles and I have collected some great “pieces” which instantly add a touch of modern glamour to whatever I am wearing. I am considering the zebra stole at Vuitton - I’m a great believer that accessories are the easiest way to update your wardrobe without spending a million bucks!

 "I'm not a fashion designer but an artist who works in fashion – an engineer of colour and form."
Giorgio di Sant'Angelo

Giorgio di Sant'Angelo was a cult favourite of celebrities such as Lena Horne, Diana Ross and Mick Jagger. The late fashion designer receives his first retrospective at the Pheonix Art Museum. His boho collections mixed American Indian, gypsy, Asian and African influences. Whilst not as commercial as some of his contemporaries at the time, this exhibition is timely with many designers showing Native American and Western influences - Proenza Schouler, Rodarte and Opening Ceremony to name a few. His breakout was in the July '68 issue of Vogue, with his model-muse Veruschka clothed in his colourful fabrics, ropes, furs, introducing his signature nomadic chic!

Le voyage...

“Historically, exceptional craftsmanship was the norm – now it is the exception.” Sarah Williams has created the most sumptuous bespoke luggage made to the highest standards,  utilising traditional methods and luxurious materials. Her designs have a surrealist direction, with one briefcase melting down in to a Daliesque droop! These luggage pieces are sure to turn heads.
