Lara Stone does bicycle chic

Now I rarely ride bikes, but when I do, sporting bicycle chic unfortunately fails to make it into my list of priorities. First up, I attempt dodging the traffic, and next, it’s manoeuvring the pedals. If there’s a bell, I’ll usually be distracted by that, and as for a basket – well don’t get me started.

Poolside Americana: Wildfox Swim

Though I know it’s the middle of Winter for our southern hemisphere readers, here in New York its getting to be the height of summer.

Whilst having her face grace the likes of Vogue, Prada and YSL is enough to put her in our good books, it’s her appearance in the latest Madewell look book that we’re loving. Slipping in…

Vans x Hermes

FYI, this isn’t an official Hermes / Vans collaboration. Nevertheless, that doesn’t mean it isn’t cool. Whilst collaborations seem to still be fashion’s way forward – cue Lanvin x H&M, Sportsgirl x Antipodium, Jil Sander x UNIQLO – custom made products can be sometimes be even better.
