' Monkee Genes in The New York Times  '

Everyone who know me knows i love anything bright and colourful. My favourite of all time jeans the super eye-catching and very successful range of brightly coloured Monkee Skinny Genes with a range of softer more sun-faded shades.

If the bright red jeans were a little too bold for you then check out these gorgeous of electric blue which are perfect for spring.
 




 Monkee Genes is the ONLY denim brand certified organic by the Soil Association, probably the hardest accreditation a clothing brand can strive to obtain. www.monkeegenes.co.uk

' Herring Shoes in The New York Times  ' 

The stunning UK handmade Herring shoes are shoes to die for. The lace up design and slim body make this shoe more than elegant enough to wear with a suit, but also lends the flexibility to dress it down with a pair of dark, slim cut jeans.
One of my favorite is the Herring Marrow is a high quality elegant shoes by Herring. It looks great with a lot of different outfits. These versatile shoes are perfect for wearing to the office, on a night out and when you want to give a more formal element to a casual outfit. Don’t underestimate Herring Shoes; you'll find that you wear them again and again.

' United Nude London Flagship store '

Last night I was truly delighted to attended the London Flagship store launch for United Nude at heart of Covent Garden. Having being a fan of the brand’s Dutch Creative Director and architect, Rem D. Koolhaas who work is in fact a clear example of the future.

Shoe store United Nude concept store is a dark concept in where the entire store is kept dark. The only lights will only be coming from the shoe display putting the spot light on each shoe.

The store certainly resembles colours from a Calvin Haris video set or a Wall of Light where I found myself completely enchanted and allured in. The shoes are perfectly displayed and placed on a LED wall. United Nude has blasted its way into London’s atmosphere with its famed Wall of Light and super stylish shoes.

United Nude's shoes categories from "affordable luxury", a category that means shoes sit at a fairly comfortable bracket of £100-£250 to Iris Van Herpen bad boys coming in at £695.

With his flagship stores, he also gets to enjoy his passion for architecture, with a truly unique “dark-shop” concept, which means the store is completely dark in all areas other than those where the products are showcased and literally highlighted. 

The launch was certainly a sucessful one, the crowd were magnificent, the hospitalitaly was immaculate and everyone had a enjoyable night.

Muddy Lovebox

WHAT  Muddy Lovebox
WHEN 18th July 2011
WHERE  Lovebox
' Muddy Lovebox '

On Sunday was a muddy mess that the Lovebox festival descended into.  This is typical for summer festivals so I’m glad I got the full experience I guess?  Anyways, here are some words to summarize the day.

There was no Kelis and Robyn duet despite rumuors, and after a largely dry evening Robyn's set was marked by a smattering of rain, but these minor points aside it was an a predictably blistering set from the sexy Swed

Of all the performances I saw I was most looking forward to Lykke Li, Santigold and Robyn.  All were pretty amazing however Katy B killed it!  Also Kelis performed before Robyn yesterday and I think she was one of the biggest draws for the crowd.  She did sound good but I only really liked dancing to milkshake.  Snoop Dogg was a big draw on Saturday night but apparently his set sucked, but I think that had to do more with the sound system and people not being able to hear him fully.

Happy Birthday to A Suit That Fits

WHEN 6th July 2011
WHERE Future Gallery, Soho

' Happy Birthday to A Suit That Fits '

Last week, I was delighted to attend A Suit That Fits 5th birthday with a spectacular party at the Future Gallery.
The night was truly magical as we celebrated the success of A Suit That Fits. 

Throughout the night we saw great performances from Tally Koren and accompanied by a gospel choir. 
The atmosphere was fantastic and guests were greeted with a delicious serve of Courvoisier Punch, canapes and we especially loved their suit-shaped cake despite the green icing, delicious! 
  
 More about the Brand:
" We’ve both always had a passion for suits, which became more than just an interest after I had a number of fantastic quality fine woollen suits made whilst doing voluntary work in Nepal in 2005.
I remained friends with the tailoring family who made my first suits from Nepal and on returning to the UK, I met up with old schoolfriend David; together we decided to use our engineering and software backgrounds to simplify tailoring and bring back the idea of a local tailor for everyone. We trialled the idea of A Suit That Fits at Hampstead market and sold our first two suits within twenty minutes of opening. This was a clear sign that we had a viable business idea, so we then worked through the night to create a simple website that was just about able to make one of our uniquely customised suits. We rented our first studio near Liverpool Street Station using money loaned on a credit card, and David continued to work two jobs for the first six months to help get us started. 

Since 7th June 2006 when we registered our first customer, we’re thrilled and very proud to be part of a fantastic and growing team of wonderful people both here in the UK and in Nepal at A Suit That Fits, and thank you to our wonderful customers for your ongoing support and custom. "

OMEGA Watches Make Splash

WHEN 6th July 2011
WHERE Haymarket Hotel

' OMEGA Watches Make Splash '

Last Month Omega threw a one to watch prestigious launch party at Haymarket Hotel. With a 1950s-style pool party theme and made a splash last week at a pool party that launched their new ladies collection. The event was truly spectacular I witnessed celebrity guests mingle, sip martinis, and admire new Ladymatic watches around a pool in which synchronised dancers performed. 

Celebs such as Sophie Ellis-Bextor, Jodie Kidd, Jesse Metcalf, Xfactor winner Matt Cardle all attended to celebrate the amazing launch. OMEGA watches are some of the most desirable Swiss watches on the market today, attracting high-profile ambassadors such as
Daniel Craig, George Clooney, Kidman and more.
 


The new Ladymatic series pays tribute to the original Ladymatic watches, which were introduced in 1955 and defined feminine grace and elegance in timepieces during that era. Now, the revived ladies watches combine stunning design with impressive, innovative mechanical watch movements which are some of the best in the world.

The new OMEGA Ladymatic Collection draws certain influences from its namesake: like the original Ladymatic watches, the line perfectly blends graceful, timeless design and OMEGA’s groundbreaking technology. The new collection, with its Co-Axial technology and bold fashion features, takes the best elements of an earlier era and introduces them, completely updated and upgraded, to discriminating women in a new century.
