Marc Jacobs Fall 2010

I've been perving on this collection ever since my beady eyes got a hold of it. This range explores traditional styles and textures combined with oversized pieces that are reminiscent of grandmas wardrobe and are proper modern classics.
And as always, the campaign shot by Juergen Teller plays on this theme perfectly. Can someone please bring this collection to our part of the globe?

What are your plans for Summer?

Today Isaac and I got prepped for a shoot.

We managed to score ourselves some bags of Doritos (always a plus) from the lovely girls at Beat PR, and i couldn't help myself from taking a shot of Isaac bending over for some Louis V.

I love Navajo

I couldn't help myself...

For those who haven't had the pleasure of visiting LaDuree in Paris for a Macaroon, the next best thing is now available for us to enjoy here in NZ. J'aime Les Macarons are made to order through . Perfect treats for a miserable Friday.

This is why Louis V is so great. Kitsch collectables like this Limited edition Steiff teddy. Only 200 were made and i've only just seen it. This can be my photo of the week. I feel i'm finally getting the hang of my camera.

'Love All' Lonely Hearts Spring 2010

With a nod to the preppy perfection of the tennis court, Lonely Hearts spring/summer 2010 melds fresh- faced innocence with coming-of-age teenage rebellion. It’s a good girl turning bad – sneaking out for a cigarette during tennis practice, her bad boy’s leather jacket slung over her crisp, white tennis dress.
Tones are clean and fresh - whites with pale pastels and cream with blue. Club blazers are cropped and emblazoned with an embroidered crest, shorts are twee and geeky and pants are high and pleated. Dresses are reminiscent of the golden age of tennis dressing – think Chris Everett with a little Steffi Graff pep – tiered, pleated and short.
Sporty practice shorts, racer back tops and stretch mesh detailing make an appearance, and shapes are easy fitting – dresses are A-line with fitted tops and full, flirty skirts.
Interspersed throughout all this country club freshness are classic Lonely Hearts forms. Rebellious dresses and separates come in hyperactive, peppy prints – paint splatter viscose, a custom acid tie dye on chambray denim - all inspired by the animal drawings of Alan Aldridge and Jan Svankmajer's 1988 surrealist film Alice. Schoolgirl checks and pretty florals add a girlish touch, referencing Lonely Hearts' signature masculine/feminine clash.
The classic country club navy is highlighted with sheer taupe and nude tones. Leather makes itself known in workout shorts and a short club blazer. While complex detailing is more prevalent than previous seasons, the collection has a confident, more minimal feel.
New Zealand based artist Kelly Thompson's freaky reworkings of the classic crest and crocodile logo are embroidered on chest pockets and grace paperwork - dapper subversions of the trappings of scrubbed-clean wealth.
