It's a love or hate relationship - but Moi? I love Moooi. I first came across Moooi design in small bar in Iceland (pictured above- Horse Lamp). Slowly taking over the interior design world with inspired furnishings such as their Light Shade Shade. (Pictured)
Topshop has a great winter collection arriving soon.This vest should reach stores just in time for Christmas...hint hint.
Cult American label and Urban Outfitter's older sister Anthropologie has arrived in the UK. Despite it's huge sucess in the USA I'm not sure how London will react. It looks like the perfect place for your old hippy aunt - too many woolen bucket hats with applique flowers.

ASHISH! Fall 2009 for Topshop - run and bulk buy. Slightly scared I'll look Drag - but I love them. Skip the matching tights but get involved with some homemade pom poms - would look good as a collar on a boring jumper.

Puma's collaboration with London College of Fashion's Lauren Greenwood and ASOS has created stunning results...
The Black T-Shirt A La Lauren Greenwood- £35 .
This name will be huge - watch out and expect magic.

Do as Dolce & Gabbana - put watches everywhere. Pile and stack them on your wrists or attach to a thick chain around your neck. (Vogue Italia)

Beautifully photographed creative cuisine science by Luxirare... amazing.

Nike Sportswear - a new division of the superbrand Nike - has chosen some great furniture for it's new Parisian branch. Each piece is inspired by old gym equipment such as pommel horse benches, balance beams and gymnastic rings aplenty.

Craig Lawrence S/S 10, eccentric knitwear in unconventional materials. He prefers the creative process of knitting as he is able to build from point zero rather than having to design around someone else's fabric. He's already got a good rep- he was awarded a coveted Blue Peter badge earlier this year and was on the cover of Another Magazines Spring/Summer Edition.

Sheer fabrics for Menswear S/S 10. Pictured -Dior, Calvin Klein, Prada. (
A Merry-Go-Round for coats- Ingenious. Winner of the Dutch Design Awards 2009. Currently displayed in The Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen in Rotterdam.

Liberty inspired prints at Prada's 2010 Resort Collection. If wearing too many prints scares you a little- take the look home instead, lovely 460 thread count bed linen by Liberty, from £50.

Katie Eary's names has been appearing everywhere of late. Her last collection was pure military fantasy and received great praise. I'm not sure if the body theme has been taken a bit too literally for her S/S 10 MAN collection. I do like the ribcage style jewellery pieces, would look great over a plain dress... but looks a little bit like a child harness on men.

Copy off Chloe's Wedges (above) with Topshop's £85 version, buy longer laces and tie them around the ankle for the full effect.

Quiksilver Boardshort vending machine in New York (for Hot-tub parties rather than beaches I imagine) - how could this be translated for a British Winter? Dry socks machine? Warm Scarf dispenser?
Finally- a grown up version of the flashing trainers I always wanted when I was 6.
Merci Chanel.

If you havn't been to Iceland this will suffice for now- 'From Static to Silence' is a free exhibition showing at at The Print Space Gallery 74 Kingsland Road until the 28th of October. Artist Rupert Nightingale has captured the landscape of Iceland in his contribution to the collection. -

Halloween ideas or New hair trends?!Charlie De Mindu's unusual hair sculptures may not take off straight away at your local Toni and Guy. But hopefully they might wean some blondes away from GhD curls and allow them to get inventive?!

Philippe Starck is world famous for his exciting contemporary design, Boutique hotel interiors and That lemon squeezer. He's now taking on an even bigger project...experimenting with fashion. In a collaboration with Italian cashmere specialist Ballantyne he has created 60 pieces, arriving in stores this month.Will his skills translate? I'm sure they will be tailored to mathematical perfection - but personally I don't think cashmere should be lime green.

My favourite film... Jean Luc Godard's Un Bout De Souffle 1960. Style to perfection.

Rodarte have created a collection for Colette in Paris. Is it bad that im jealous of the doll?
Doll retails for 770 Euros. Bargin.(

The Turner Prize 2009: Last week the Tate opened it's doors to the annual Turner Prize Finalist Exhibition. The Finalists (clockwise from top left)- Lucy Skaer,Richard Wright, Roger Hiorns and Enrico David. (NO VIDEO ART- wah shocked!) Hiorns is the most original in terms of his chosen materials- a flat near Elephant and Castle pumped full of Copper Sulfate then chilled until crystals grew.

A very shallow opinion - but I think this is the prettiest.

I was lucky enough to attend the shows at Red Bull Fashion Factory, of all the graduates only one designer stood out to me, that was Jamie Cockerill, this video shows some of the show.

Felder Felder took stage in the evening with a celebrity packed front row. Their collection wasn't moving trends forward but more appropriate in the present. Comprising of structured denim and leather with embellished, studded and shredded details. I want all of this collection.

Fashion Fringe Finalist Elliot Atkinson's collection was beautiful with powered pink prints, oversized lambskin pilot coats and sheer black mesh. Can't wait for future pieces. (
Nazanin Yousseff. I love the sheer draping in conrast to the sharp collar and bold shoulders. Graduating from Instituto Maragoni in 2008, it's a year on and we want her back in the spotlight please. (image- wallpaper graduate directory)
