New Header and Background Spring 2012

A new season, and new header and background! As usual, I choose a designer from Milan ( Alberta Ferretti), New York (Jason Wu),  Paris (Chanel), and London (Giles).

And here are the originals…


Quick Tips: Trench Coat

A most in everyone’s closet, here are some tips to look amazing wearing such a staple item

  • If the trench coat falls lower than your knee caps it is too long.
  • Make sure the belt on the coat matches to your waist, in proportion to your body.
  • Tie the fabric belt that comes with the trench on a knot
  • Yes, Khaki and Black are the staple colors, but you can always think outside the box with a classic blue or maroon. Or another option is cute patterns like polka dots.
  • When you wear the trench open, still cinch the belt to make a definition on your waist!

Biography of Phoebe Philo

PHOEBE PHILO has put the sartorial sparkle into Celine. Born in Paris, the British designer was educated in London and went on to study at Central Saint Martins, graduating in 1996.

Philo joined the house of Chloe in 1997 as first assistant on its ready-to-wear and moved to Paris. In 2001  she was appointed creative director of the label, taking over from Stella McCartney – who had taken on Philo as her design assistant at Chloe. In October of that year, Philo presented her first ready-to-wear collection for the house and in 2002 launched Chloe’s accessories line. In 2005, Philo was honoured with the British Designer of the Year accolade by the British Fashion Council. During her reign at Chloe, the label was transformed into a luxury global brand, winning critical and commercial acclaim for both its ready-to-wear and accessories offerings. Philo resigned from Chloe in 2006 and moved back to London. During this time she had her second child. After a break from the industry, Philo was appointed creative director at Celine and made board member of Celina SA. Of joining the label, she said at the time: “It will be whatever I make it for the time I’m there.” She presented her debut pre-spring 2010 collection in June 2009 and her full spring/summer 2010 collection in October of that year.

Philo lives and works in London with her husband, gallery owner Max Wigram, and her two children.

New Header and Background Fall 2011

It is still 100+ degrees outside but believe it or not fall is almost here, at least in the fashion world. So to get in the spirit I made the background for twitter and the header of the blog, for the Fall 2011 .

Once again I choose one designer from Paris (Elie Saab), Milan (Gucci),  New York (Calvin Klein), and London (Burberry Prorsum).

Hope you like them!
