trawling through the internet in search of inspiration i came across these lovely images. reminded me of an old family photo of my mother and her siblings taken in the 70's (she's on the far right in white):

i wish i had been in england when this story was published (or at least in a country that sold i-D), to experience the excitement of a 'new english-ness'. currently a hot topic.

Alexander Brenninkmeijer's touring collection was in London last week, only for three days each season before moving on to it's next destination. I dropped by, had a browse and left with some amazing trousers (and a heart full of love for Alexander).
some highlights from the AW09 Menswear:

shot down by Leila today. i thought i explained my idea pretty clearly (well, as coherently as i could...being me...) but whatever. there's time yet to bulletproof it before presentations next week.
i don't know what these say but I love them:
dance our way to victory?
must ask Mengxi to translate...
Elite Model Management sent over some girls again on Monday for me to meet & greet. had to rush back from Lime Grove, whack lunch in the oven and even had time to sneak in half an episode of Family Guy before the first girl Julie showed up. here are a few that stood out:
FEI FEI SUN :: was looking forward to seeing her the most and without a doubt my favourite girl of the day. those eyes, that hair, those HANDS! so graceful. she flew back to Shanghai today so I'm chuffed I got to see her. she's built up a lot of momentum since Elite Model Look '08 and her book is already as stunning as she is. this girl could be my muse.
OLIVIA DUNIN :: moved over from Independent after they shut down. a very calm girl with a kind, warm energy, amazing hair and gorgeous eyes...
JUSTINE :: Canadian ghost...absolutely striking and otherworldly look.
SIGAIL CURRIE :: I could spend the whole day with this girl. PIZZAZZ!
ADRIANA :: brand new to Elite but full of grace and poise. eyes you could get lost in and legs that go on for days.
JULIA :: those legs, that mouth, those freckles. cute cute cute.
JULIE DUMONT :: the only girl of the day that saw the inside of my (messy) flat! came through into the building before I had the chance to grab my camera and meet her in the lobby. statuesque, intense and has a face you could cut diamonds with.
