Pardon My French With Garance Dore

 

I gotta tell you about Garance’s new show¬†Pardon My French.¬†Obviously I love the show (I’m a biased boyfriend) but the thing I love most is seeing Garance push herself to try something new. The fact that she’s exploring an idea that hasn’t really been done in the blog world is one of the big reasons why I respect her so much as an artist.

 

As you’ll see in the videos, she’s just as charming in real life as she is in her writing.

What’s Next For Raf?

Hey guys, we hear from the¬†gossip¬†that Raf is leaving Jil Sander (Saturday’s show will mark his exit) and potentially going to Dior or YSL.

 

Personally, I’d love to see him at Dior, but where do¬†you¬†think he should go? Dior or YSL?

The New Search Page!

Recently I promised a few new site updates. ¬†Well, here’s another update!!

 

We’ve cleaned up the tag section of the search page, making it more organized and clear, so you can search by ‘People, Places, or Features’ with all tags listed to make everything more intuitive and visual.

Don’t forget that you can search multiple tags at once, as many as you want, and click ‘Search’ on the top right to see results for all.

 

Hope this makes things a bit easier to navigate– stay tuned for more updates.

On the Street…….London Legs, London

Fur and bare legs… It’s a thing. ¬†Lots of people say “If it’s cold enough for fur, then it’s too cold for bare legs.” ¬†Quotes like that, to me, seem like getting dressed based only on a concept rather than reality. ¬†I find that if my core is warm (especially my arms and legs) some cool weather feels good and seems to balance my body temperature.

We have to remember that when people go out for the day, they’re not spending hours and hours walking around outside– we’re in and out of shops, in and out of cars, in and out of apartments– ¬†If anything, I get too warm during the winter wearing my coat around all the time. ¬†Also, remember that the temperatures in the morning and at the end of the day (when we’re going back and forth to work) are different than at lunchtime when the sun is in full force.

Dressing for the weather is a very inaccurate science, and quoting tired concepts or rules only shows a lack of understanding for the variety in our lives.

Burberry Fall/Winter 2012

Another great Burberry collection.  The outerwear was reimagined, refit and restyled for a hip young lady.

 

Actually, this brings up a point. I was a bit surprised as to how many of the London collections seemed totally based on dressing for the cocktail hour. ¬†There were so few clothes had any relation to cold weather. I guess it’s a business strategy, but a very narrow one.
