Mlle Mademoiselle S/S ’14 look book

I need help deciding: which to be more enamoured with, the clothing in MLLE Mademoiselle’s spring 2014 look book, or the look book itself? The white lace “mermaid” dress with its plunging neckline and fishtail hem calls like a siren, as happy to be worn with bed hair and flat sandals as with heels and red lips. Cutaway bikinis, lace-front shorts and halternecks have a…

Life that begins when the night falls

For some people, the days seem to suddenly get to an endpoint as soon as the sun sets, cutting all strings, limiting all activities, shutting down all senses.

6 gorgeous Easter-themed retro pinups for your Sunday

Before dismissing sexy ladies in bunny ears as flippant, know that I am of course aware of the significance of Easter as an event on the religious calendar. Yes I spent my Easter Sunday morning at a historically and architecturally fascinating Portuguese church, listening to mass in a language I couldn’t quite understand. Outside the pews the original message is, as with every major Christian…

White fire, black ice

Some pictures aren’t meant to keep you guessing for long, laying out bits and pieces of a reality that’s stripped down to its bare essence, lacking any signs of embellishments, yes, but never meaning.

LOA S/S ’14 look book

A garment always feels more special when it’s hand-made. Lidia Aguilera’s young label LOA features the kind of unique finishings and embroideries that can’t be found in mass-produced product: a mix of the folklore, traditions and craftwork from Aguilera’s home Island of Formentera with the freshness of spring trends and the cosmopolitan vibe of modern Barcelona.

Very Sexy: Karlie & Doutzen for Victoria’s Secret

Victoria’s Secret can easily be charged with accusations of doing a lot of the same, same but the formula clearly nets them millions of profits, so why change it?
