I came across this film on youtube and the style and dancing blew me away. There is something so couture about the beautiful body positions, I had to share it! Enjoy ‘Amelia’ by choreographed by Edouard Lock

Valantino Couture, Fall 2011

Paris July 6…For me Valentino was hands down the most exquisite of the shows. hailed it “A mood board methodically arranged with haunting pictures of the last tsar’s family and their lost world cued the fairy-tale princess feel of Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pier Paolo Piccioli’s new couture collection for Valentino.”


Boue Soeurs

I was flicking through ‘The Fashion Book’, when I came across Boue Soeurs. The Paris couture house flourished at the beginning of the twentieth century. Below are the most exquisite pair of gripoix Chanel earrings, possibly late 1970’s early 1980’s, from Nina Polli Vintage.


Summer Photo Inspiration

It seems summer has at last arrived in London, and I was just becoming accustomed to seeing the autumn collections in the shops, but I refuse to succumb when there is still a chance for some sunny days ahead. Photos for Muse magazine by Tim Barber make me smile! And there is a movie to go along with it too!

An exciting find!

I recently stumbled upon a vintage Chanel brooch, the oldest Chanel piece to be added to the collection. It has the Chanel stamp indicating that it was made between 1954 and 1970, but I have a hunch it is closer to 1954. What thrills me about this brooch is that it is clearly inspired by Coco Chanel’s love of Coromandel screens from Japan. The tiny fans have Japanese birds engraved on them and are just exquisite. If anyone out there can shed  light on when this was made I would love to hear from you!
