New Season, New Tracks

25/10/2014, Givenchy, Isabel Marant, London, Louis Vuitton, Music, Phillip Lim

Remember that time back in the dark ages when iPods were all the rage and good ol’ Uncle Karl Lagerfeld went on a publicity spree showing off his collection of over 100 iPods? One could only imagine having a personal iPod nanny at their disposal. I’m honestly have no clue whether or not iPods are still around (hint: too lazy to google) but the idea of having my own slave updating my iPhone and my laptop with all the latest tracks is kind of amazing, no?

Here are some of my favorite new tracks perfect for the new season. Autumn is upon us bitches! If you see me werq, I mean walk, the streets with my headphones on, the likelihood of me listening to one of these tracks is quite high. Enjoy!

Alpha by Solange Azagury-Partridge

16/09/2014, Fashion and Style, Jewelry, London

My business meeting at the Connaught Hotel yesterday afternoon finished early and right across the hotel is Solange Azagury-Partridge’s flagship boutique. I first heard of Solange from reading LoveGold’s London Shopping Guide. As much as I love fashion and all its trappings, I’m not getting any younger. Most of my clothes usually have a shelf life of six months, probably a year tops. Which is why I started to look (I said look, not buy, ok!!!) into fine jewelry lately — they last forever! There comes a certain point in life when you elevate yourself with certain, finer things.

To the uninitiated, Solange Azagury-Partridge is a self-taught jewelry designer. In 2001, Tom Ford (formerly of PPR), hired her to serve as the Creative Director of Boucheron. She held the position for several years before focusing on her own brand.

She recently launched her first men’s jewelry collection named “Alpha” based on classic themes such love, lust, strength and beauty. All of her men’s pieces are made with 18ct yellow gold but sandblasted and blackened with rhodium. The blackening intentionally wears away, over time, to slowly reveal the yellow gold underneath. I thought it was genius.

I had the pleasure of trying several things on. Perhaps my favorite piece from the entire “Alpha” collection is the “Heart of Darkness” pendant. My heart never raced so fast I couldn’t stop myself from sweating in my three-piece suit when I held it. The pendant had a great weight as well. DIVINE. ABSOLUTELY DIVINE.

The “Lionheart” ring features two small diamonds and a ruby.

This is the “Bareknuckle” pendant. I like how it signifies strength, like a fist ready to punch someone.

I also love the “WMD” (Weapons of Mass Destruction) pendant. I had a good chuckle when I saw this cheeky piece.

The “Tied Up” bangle is adjustable.

One of Solange’s personal favorites is the “Samson” bracelet. It’s a made to measure piece customized with a lock of your loved one’s (or your) hair.

Christopher Kane Fall Winter 2011

The liquid-filled plastic accents on Christopher Kane’s dresses were terrific. Unexpected if you ask me.

Remember Robyn’s Indestructible video? I still don’t know who designed her frock. They’re not similar, of course, but I like the concept.

Here are several other looks from Christopher Kane’s fall/winter 2011 fashion show.
