California Poppies With You

The concept of this Mary Katrantzou Spring 2011 Ready-to-Wear collection is so perfect, so ingenious that for a moment it stunned me into silence. This is quite possibly one of my favourite collections of the past few years and after analysing every little detail of these effortless pieces, I began to notice all the intricacies I'd overlooked. Embellished necklaces fashioned from light fixtures and draped chiffon imitating billowing curtains. And the shoes. Vibrant jewel tones and at times subtle, classic shapes. Perfect.

When We Erupt Into A Room

Adore the Rolling Stones, David Bowie vibe of this August 2010 Interview editorial. Plus it's Freja, so what's not to love?

This Is Our Last Dance

I love that Alexander Wang stayed away from black for his Spring 2011 collection. I especially love the burnt orange boots, which I'm pretty sure I need this very second.

We Rode On Horses Made Of Sticks

Recovering from the mind numbing essay has turned into recovering from a strong case of the flu. My throat is sore, by body aches and I fairly sure that death is imminent. So until I stop coughing like a pack a day smoker enjoy the images above.
