Double RL Launch Party @ Liberty London

Rodeo theme last night for the launch in the EU of new Ralph Lauren clothing line, inside Liberty's renewed menswear department. 
Double RL is a new brand of the Ralph Lauren family which celebrates American retro work wear for men:  hand-finished selvedge denim and flannel fabrics, lumberjack and pendleton prints, classic cut jeans, military-grade chinos, braces with leather inserts.
On the notes of country blues music we sipped lovely Tiger Milk and Mint Juleps cocktails and lovely canapes. Goody bags at the end and home not too late! Crazy week ahead! xx

Kate, Gaby, Lyns

Tiger Milk cocktails!

Enjoying my mint julep :)

The guy in the middle reminded me of Pete Campbell in MadMen

Pure London.

Lovely stuff seen at Pure for AW11. Lots of romantically embellished knitted clothing at sustainable brand Lowie and at Pixie. Pastel macaron shades like mint, pink nudes, violet and light blues were dominating on the clothes (Orion, Jovonna, CiCi, TBA)  - and if you actually want to put on your finger a fake laduree now you can! I wouldn't try and bite it though.
Tassels, rubber pompoms and plastic brooch-like are renewing Melissa's signature pieces designed by Vivienne Westwood. Also worth to mention their intriguing lace up ankle boots with brogue detail.
Chie Mihara had some amazing suede and ostrich-like leather t-bar shoes. Heels were high but wearable. 
French sole inserted, in what it used to be a ballerina-only collection, some nicely shaped boots. Will it work for them? Only next winter will tell!

Bring on London Fashion Week! I can't wait to go. I will keep you posted in the next few days! xx

real or fake? :)

Vogue Russia 10th Anniversary.

This picture just got my attention on Another Mag.. I think matryoshka dolls are one of my guilty pleasures.. I love how Vogue celebrated their 10th Anniversary! The dolls have been auctioned for charity a couple of months ago...

Can you recognise the designers?

Winter dreaming

Dreaming of summer today..I so wish it was round the corner but there is still a lot to go! I'm dreaming of Festivals, picnics in the park and bathing into the Ocean. I can't wait!
