Temperley London Autumn / Winter 2013: The Birds

Still romantic and utterly feminine in essence, Temperley London’s fall / winter 2013 collection reached for a surprisingly dramatic source of inspiration, as it was highly influenced by Tippi Hedren’s iconic character in Hitchcock’s classic horror movie, “The Birds”. With the image of a frosty, prim and proper Melanie Daniels in minds, the designer envisioned a polished and glamorous 60s inspired line up which allowed…

A matter of sex bombs: Wheels & Dollbaby and Tiah Eckhardt

Wheels and Dollbaby is a cult contemporary womenswear label that has its own personality with a bag full of adjectives: it’s cheeky, kinky, minx-like, sophisticated, classy and luxurious.
