Forget Dior - Moi? J'adore Chloé!

For some, Chloé's collection for Fall 2010 may seem a little... well, bland. Gone are the scalloped edges, floaty dresses and delicate fabrics that we have come to expect from Hannah MacGibbon and instead, we are offered a 'no-frills', clear cut alternative with tailored, and somewhat androgynous pieces.
However, that certainly does not mean the collection is by any means less feminine. In fact, it seems that MacGibbon's new collection exemplifies the modern context of that exact word - 
What does it mean to be feminine in 2010?
I promise you, this latest collection provides all the answers, and there isn't even a hint of pink...

Women today belong to the professional world. We are, or are at least close to becoming our male counterpart's equals. So, why not wear a trouser suit to work? and LOOK BETTER than your male boss who is forced to wear the same outfit because his sex has no alternative option. 
Ladies, we can definitely pull off the military look as well as any soldier...
Can men wear slouchy trousers with heels? I think not. 

Hannah MacGibbon - I salute you!
I'll not deny that I am one of those girls that will always opt for a dress over a pair of trousers, but maybe it's time to make a change and if that means Chloé is leading the way for Fall 2010, then I will quite happily follow suit.

Hi Ho, Hi Ho...

Now normally I would look at these jeans, raise my eyebrows and say, "really"? And that's being kind. 
Look at the shape, instead of elongating the leg, they somehow make them seem as though they belong to one of Snow White's seven little men, and a dumpy one at that. (Imagine the photo was taken of her standing straight, both legs side by side - see what I mean?)
But then, I'm forced to look at the bigger picture - it was Monsieur Sartorialist after all who papped this lovely lady. Surely she deserves a second glance.
Everything else about this look works; the khaki beige jacket, the nude layering of her t-shirts, that little flash of green on her belt - it's all very Spring 2010.
But that denim! I'm just not sure I'm convinced. 
I can forgive, but I definitely cannot forget... sometimes vintage my friends, should definitely remain vintage.

Officially En Vogue!

OMG it's little old me... in French Vogue! 
Somebody pinch me!

To translate:
Charlene Barton - Student, blogger, and indispensable to all of French Vogue's London fashion spreads: at just 21 years old, this is a girl of many talents. Not only has she appeared on many TV shows, but Charlene has also sung for Prince Charles. 
This is someone Vogue simply could not allow to let pass them by.  

Merci, Carine!

Concrete Jungle.

I'm still obsessed with New York - in fact, it's no1 on my to do list to go once I finish my exams.
Till then I'll just have to admire the Sartorialist's images - and dream about owning this girl's jacket ♥
