Roksanda Illincic, Julien Macdonald, Erdem are some of the few designers called to create their own tutu designs for the English Ballet Company. Those will be auctioned for charity at the summer party extravaganza at the Orangery in Kensington Palace....I'd love to own every single one!!!

Pringles goes for Tilda Swinton and artist Jim Lambie once again for their AW11 campaign.
The new line evokes art deco geometric patterns which match Swinton's new look. The Scottish label is definitely taking a different direction...however I feel like they're going too Missoni don't you?
I love Tilda Swinton, she's one of the most charismatic and elegant actress around. I was amazed by her interpretation of a woman stuck in the Milanese haute bourgeoisie in 'I am love'. Watch this film, you'll get goose bumps! xx

Chelsea flea market and Antiques stores. (along 25th St)
the Antiques stores on 25th St (both east and west) are worth a visit. You can find lots of bakelite jewellery and vintage designer clothing.
Great vibe at Chelsea Flea Market, on Saturday and Sunday from 9am to 5pm, lively and eclectic, it offers good pieces of vintage furniture and clothing. Expect to find Ferragamo coats and 1960's Chanel suits (prices...well you can imagine...)
If you come out the opposite side of the market, on 24th, you can find a hidden gem. RonnieScot is a little vintage warehouse selling great old military clothing and many great pieces from 50's, 60's and 70's. Prices are reasonable and if you buy more than one item they'll give you a discount.
Nolita - Lower East Side.
|Calypso - 280 Mott St.|
|Double RL - 271 Mulberry St.|
|LittleCupcake Bakeshop - 30 Prince St. Yum!|
|Quality Mending Co. - 15 Prince St|
|Quality Mending Co.|
For military vintage clothing lovers Quality Mending Co. is the place to shop! Forget Double RL, prices are far too high, this is affordable and staff are so lovely and helpful! Perfect cocktail! I loved their selection of mens vintage footwear.
|Clothing Warehouse - 8 Prince Street|
Great vintage finds at the Clothing Warehouse!
|Le Labo - 233 Elizabeth Street|
|For lovers of TB their lovely store on Elizabeth st|
From Nolita find your way towards Lower East Side via Rivington street there are some nice shops like Cutie Room which has some good picks from indie designers from NY, LA and Tokyo.
Lower East Side is my favourite area to shop. The best emerging designers are collected in the numerous boutiques around Ludlow street.
Greatest shop ever? Between Orchard and Ludlow on 100 Stanton St there is the amazing Pixie Market. Jeffrey Campbell, B Store, Carin Wester, Best Behaviour, BACK by Ann Sophie Back to name a few. Browse their website to fall in love: http://www.pixiemarket.com/store/
NY see you soon! xx
