We want Sample Sales!

We want the dirt. We want the skeletons out the f*cking closet. Fashionista's have this sort of sixth sense in sniffing out where it's all happening. Sample sales in London are scarce of details via the internet, so we've got a back-up plan. Ever heard of Old Truman Brewery in Shoreditch?Well, a little bird tell's us that this is where 6-8 of the biggest designers host their samples each year. Gorgeous? We bloody think so. and there's a mailing list that keep's you up to date in the next sale to come. visit www.secretsamplesale.co.uk for more info. tres tres chic.

Exclusive Interview: Style Gourmand

Tandi, 30, from NYC works on www.stylegourmand.blogspot.com, and is here to talk fashion. We gmailed her on the upcoming year...

1.So name one item you want for the new year?

Anything from the Phillip Lim's children's collection in an adult size.

2.Describe your look in one word? (or three!) 

Vintage-inspired minimalism.

3.What catwalk show will you/ would you want to visit next year?

I have always wanted to attend a Christian Dior Haute Couture show. Galliano is not only a master at creating beautifully ornate gowns, but his Dior shows are also such over-the-top theatrical events, that I would really love to see one in person. 

4.Who is your style icon?

Catherine Deneuve in Belle du Jour.

5.Which trend should we look out for this upcoming spring/ summer?

Prints have been popular for the past few seasons and this Spring, I think that mixing and matching bright ethnic prints, like Ikats and African patterns, will be a strong trend. Brands such as Suno and Boxing Kitten use beautiful color prints that are unique and have rich colors. Gwen Stefani also used some fabulous prints from West Africa in her Spring/Summer collection for L.A.M.B.  Of course, prints also look just as good with monochromatic pieces, but the trendsetters will definitely be going all out, experimenting with wearing a multitude of patterns at once.

6.What item of clothing should we shift (bin) and what should we save?

I think that harem pants can be tossed since they are flattering on very few people. You should save those pieces that you really love becuase chances are it will come back into fashion, eventually.

7. Designer or High-Street?

I think how you wear clothes is more important than what brand of clothes you wear. Personal style is all about being creative, not necessarily spending a lot of money. For me, I like to mix classic designer pieces with trendier clothes from High-Street stores.


Armani's New Face: Elisa Sednaoui

With her sky scraping height of 5'9, Elisa Sednaoui is Giorgio's new Showgirl for the Fashion Scene. Elisa has previously modelled for Chanel, Diesel, Pucci, Triumph and a whole lot more we couldn't list in one sentence. With the Armani campaign ready to be released in February, we can't help but yonder at what it will look like. A masculine man, perhaps? We've probably got the triceps bulging somewhere...well, we can show you one image.

Carine Roitfeld- Whats IS Going on?..

Carine has been in le papiers (translated to 'the papers', we are talking of a french extraordinaire, here) practically most days. A publicity stunt some might say (i.e. a jealous Katie Price), but she can't help the drama of her life being snatched up by the press.

The thing is, the Carine revolution for Vogue is ending...she's quit the job to pursue other options. However much we weep, and scream, and blubber over previous issues of vogue, it can't stop it from happening. Because something better is going to crash into it's place.

It is not official that Carine Roitfeld will be collaborating with Tom Ford on a design project set to turn Mcqueen in his grave (R.I.P). But, the chances of it happening seem to be quite...big.

So Get ready, world, you may be about to end up with the best designer dress to date.
