At 5 Beekman Street in Manhattan, there is a large but unassuming building that is completely empty and abandoned, with much of the interior shuttered since 1940. Few are allowed inside, depriving the general public of the ability to witness its surprisingly stunning interior – and it won’t be this way for long, as it was recently purchased by hotelier André Balasz. The derelict interior provided an intriguing backdrop for our shoot, contrasting perfectly with the soft, girly pastels of our lookbook.Read More
Since my last blogger diary, it’s rained, it’s snowed, I’ve taken sunny afternoon walks, visited museums – far too much to get straight into one (comprehensible) blog post. So instead, I thought I’d play a bit of “fill in the blank.”Read More
Lemon… a ray of sunshine, a light at the end of winter’s tunnel, daffodils and daisies poking their heads out of the ground and the fresh scent of citrus flower… a color associated with joy, happiness, intellect, and energy.

Our February lookbook is so full of light and soft colors, it’s hard to believe it was shot on a chilly day in New York City in an abandoned building… our team shot at 5 Beekman St (more on this location to come) with photographer Anna Palma, who you may remember from this amazing video. Here’s a peek behind the scenes!
Have you ever looked at a girl and thought, “there’s someone who knows what fashion is?” This week’s Style File is one of those girls. She’s not scared of an Avant Garde print or dressing head-to-toe in monochromatic tomato red. Her styling is spot on, the way one images a top fashion editor being styled. Although she always looks relaxed and comfortable, you just know that she’s into fashion. The sweater she throws on is perfectly nubby, and oh, that insanely cool necklace she’s wearing? It’s the logo for her friends’ young fashion line that is blowing up in the UK right now. Her style is flawless with great attention to detail. Look close and you’ll see a dreamy braid hidden in her waves. This girl knows how to dress herself.
London Fashion Week is underway and we have the beautiful blogger Sarah from Baby is a Sinner blog documenting what’s hot in the Big Smoke.
From the city to the style on the streets it’s quite apparent that London has a slightly more Rock N Roll/ Punk vibe than New York and again the colours of Neon made an appearance – a trend we all love!
has any London Fashion Show caught your eye yet?
Here’s a photo diary from LFW! More to come tomorrow!!
Last week we told you about the pastel trend we love for spring, and today we released our February lookbook, a pastel story. This week we’ll take a closer look at some of the pretty hues we love for spring, starting with rose… the color of delicate petals, sun-kissed cheeks and grapefruit, symbolic of gentleness, grace and sweetness.
