Hugo Boss Talk Edition 2

30/03/2012, Current Affairs, Fashion and Style, Fashion Bloggers, Hugo Boss

As some of you guys know, I went to Berlin in January to attend the HUGO by HUGO BOSS fashion show. I also filmed an episode for their Hugo Boss Talk series. Their camera crew followed me and Berlin-based Women’s Wear Daily correspondent Melissa Drier around the city for a whole day.

I had lots of fun at the Stefanel brunch the other day here in Milan. It was lovely reuniting with Gala and Eleonora, both of whom I haven’t seen in quite some time.

Proenza Schouler PS11 Bag

29/03/2012, Accessories, Fashion and Style, Handbags, Proenza Schouler

It’s not easy trying to resist something extremely good. I’m one of the last people to carry a Proenza Schouler bag. Everyone has the PS1 in every imaginable color and material. I don’t blame them; the PS1 is a classic. But after seeing this sporty tri-color Proenza Schouler PS11 baby, with its fabric straps (you can detach them and voila, you have an oversized clutch), pastel blue flap and gorgeous details, I have no choice but to slate it as numero uno on my ‘must-have’ list. It’s been my every day bag for quite awhile now. Whether I’m wearing Prada florals or Acne camoflorage or monochromatic Alexander Wang, I’m honestly surprised how it matches whatever I’m wearing on rotation.

Bottom Boy Seeks Yellow and White Top

19/03/2012, Fashion and Style, Phillip Lim, Spring Summer 2012

I’ve been monitoring online stores that carry 3.1 Phillip Lim (SSENSE and Shopbop) and I cannot seem to find this sheer white sleeveless top with yellow strip panels from his spring/summer 2012 collection. It’s one of my favourite pieces from his show (tried to photograph it from all directions while sitting on the front row) and I’m surprised it hasn’t arrived yet. I hope it’s not one of those ‘for-show’ pieces that they don’t end up producing.

I love it, I need it, I must have it. That yellow and white top needs to come into my life. Stat! I even went to the store in New York last month to look for it to no avail. I ended up buying a pair of mesh trousers and mesh boots instead.

Just Waiting For The Chilly, Jil-ly Days To Be Over

18/03/2012, Current Affairs, Fashion and Style, Jil Sander, Spring Summer 2012

I bought this navy veiled beanie designed by Stephen Jones for Jil Sander at the Paris boutique during Paris fashion week and I’ve been wearing it almost every day. It’s one of my favourite purchases this season and I’ve gotten major mileage out of this (very) expensive hat. I regret not buying the white one. What’s annoying is that it took an amazing genius like Stephen to come up with the idea of combining something so terribly banal (beanie) with something so chic (netted veil). The result, is, phenomenal! I can’t believe no one ever thought of it before and could’ve sold it for a friendlier price.

Pringle’s Perfect 10

18/03/2012, 10 Magazine, Current Affairs, Fashion and Style, Magazine Covers, Press Coverage, Pringle

Don’t forget to pick up the latest (spring/summer 2012) issue of 10 Magazine UK. Anna Mouglalis, in Chanel, is on the cover. Ten is one of my favourite fashion glossies! Pringle of Scotland recently collaborated with my beloved Sophia Neophitou-Apostolou and they’ve invited their favourite personalities for this cute travel Q&A feature. Anna Dello Russo, Antonio Berardi, Katie Hillier, Susie Bubble and Jen Brill (among many others) also took part and all of us wore pieces from the 10 x Pringle collaboration. I sent in a cheeky photo that my bf took of myself, dozing away at the Swissair lounge at Zurich airport in January.
