Paul Smith autumn 2014: sleepy sophistication

What’s the difference between rolling out of bed in your pyjamas, and getting dressed into an outfit that deliberately looks like you’ve rolled out of bed in your pyjamas? Paul Smith knows the answer, and it’s not as straightforward as you might think. To do it right you need to pay heed to subtleties, like using only the finest silks, mixing panels of prints, and…

In these days of Instagram, lessons on how to look great in photos are naturally popular. Today’s lesson teaches you how to take selfies just like a supermodel.

sass & bide PF ’14 look book

Embellishments are a constant of the sass & bide wardrobe, and pre-fall 2014 has a toned down array that’s tribal-esque but in an Art Deco inspired way. There’s lost of black and gold, or white and gold, a touch of print or a smattering of metallic polka-dots, but nothing is too intricate or too much. High slit skirts and cutaway shoulders make for sophisticatedly sexy…

Gisele woos for Juergen Teller’s camera

There’s oft referenced interview in which then-24 year old model Gisele Bundchen declared that she “would never be naked in a fashion picture.” Time and time again, Gisele has proved herself wrong.

Postcards from a fashioniser around Aleenta. By Daniel P Dykes. The mention of Phuket, Thailand, is likely to conjure up images beautiful beaches and exquisite islands. Or perhaps, depending on your youth, cheap bars and raucous clubs. Head north out of Phuket, however, and stick to the West of the mainland and you’ll soon find yourself in Phangnga. Here I stayed at Aleenta Resort having…

Princesse tam tam S/S ’14 look book

Always favouring the most effortless cuts, Princesse Tam Tam somehow manage to make their lingerie the polar opposite of vampish while still maintaining a sense of glamour. There’s no Victoria’s Secret-style bombshell padding, no bondage-strapped leather or intricate corsetry. It’s stripped back to youthful, feminine simplicity: whether underwear, swimwear, or loungewear, there’s something spectacularly appealing about the idea of a Princesse who’s not high maintenance.…
