We love Twisted Lifestyle!

Get on it, for god's sake! It's a fashion gem worth knowing about!


Italian designers Dolce & Gabbana have teamed up with Bacardi’s vermouth brand Martini to launch their Martini Gold by Dolce & Gabbana.
The new drink comes to the shelves in a lavish gold bottle in a black case. The new Martini Gold vermouth is a blend of bergamot from Calabria, lemons from Sicily as well as oranges, Spanish saffron, myrrh from Ethiopia, ginger from India, and cubebe pepper from Indonesia.
In addition Twisted Lifestyle can report that Dolce & Gabbana are also working on a special project titled Quando Quando Quando. From what we understand, this project is a short promotional film as part of a campaign to promote Martini Gold by Dolce & Gabbana
The designers and their representatives are maintaining a low profile on the project, with the film’s official website showing nothing but a countdown to its release.
There’s a trailer out which shows a seductive woman turning heads in an Italian cityscape, it can already be said, however, that the visual language will stay close to the designers’ black-and-white, 1950s-inspired campaign starring Madonna.
The duo at D&G are definitely keeping busy lately and it’ll be interesting to see what they come up with.

Fashion Forecast: SS11

Like a wart nosed gypsy, we've been looking into our crystal ball (ever so boho!) and predicting what to expect this upcoming season...

This year think seventies re-invention. A strong essence of bohemian style, prints and jumpsuits. There's a heavy dose of earth-like tones being injected into the seventies revamp, keeping the look both contemporary and fresh. Wide leg trousers, midi-skirts and a selection of kimono's for you to choose this spring/ summer.(top left)

Safari Girl
Go a bit wild this summer with the very adventurous soul of safari, that mixes well with the 70's trend. Think bulky khaki jackets, denim shirts and maybe a hat thrown in on the side. Soften the look with textures such a lustrous chiffon in pastel whites, creams and the everlasting colour camel.

Eclectic Drama
Eclectic drama should have the concentration centred on make-up. It's all about using unusual clashes, colours and wearing your hair loose and flowing. Try something different like a small array of hair in a plait at the side, unique brooches and jewellery with a difference. It's about accessorising classic pieces and making them look edgier and way out.(right)

Bold and Bright
You could call it colour blocking, but colour blocking can't get any more blinding than this. Keeping it minimalist orientated, it shouldn't have a trace of prints anywhere, while the colour stays sharp. Be sure to accessorise carefully, going for more neutral colours for belts and jewellery.

 Tuxe Luxe
Almost the opposite of bold colours, this trend is all about sharp, clean cut edges. Monochrome colours or  timeless black and white, imagine yourself being whisked to a dinner evening nestled in the chambers of a manor house. You don't have to be rich, you just have to look smart. (below)

This year their was a rugged influence on the 1970's era. Gucci revived the kick flares and denim for their resort collection, while DKNY had a accessories based palette. Everywhere we look this season, there is an unique take on this hippy dippy time.

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.
