If Linda Fargo (buyer for Bergdorf and Goodman, TD) is a fan, then it’s worth keeping an eye on this designerduo I came across on Fashion TV the other day. The two ladies from Cushnie et Ochs describe their designs as sexy and severe. All true, the razorsharp silhouettes are sleek and chic with a lot of peek-a-boo effects.
Fashion is about style. About trends. About expressing ourselves. But fashion is also about making yourself a liar. How often have you said: I will never ever wear that in my life again?! And how often have you caught yourself wearing it a few seasons later? Well, let’s be honest; all the time! Every season, I guess. Leather pants, clogs, pointy shoulders, leggings: we all threw it away and then bought it again! Damn, we are so stupid!

Things we can't afford, but still want to buy, even it will costs us a lifetime full of sandwiches with peanut butter…
We love this gorgeous crocodile tail leather jacket from Balmain. Why are we broke?!?
London Fashion Week: we really really really missed you. But because all three of us are broke, we couldn’t come to visit you. But the next time we’ll be there. We will be back! For now: just some high lights from this fashionable week.
Style.com has interviewed influential people in fashion about their vision on the future of fashion. The first one was Robert Duffy, ‘the-I-just-discovered-Twitter’ president of Marc Jacobs, the second was Cathy Horyn- the NY Times fashion critic, and the third was designer Hedi Slimane. Here are their quotes that put our toughts on hold for a minute….
Robbert Duffy about his expectations on the launch of the Marc Jacobs e-commerce site in August:
”I really don’t know what to expect. I have absolutely no idea. The only two things I’ve ever bought on the Internet—three things, actually—are a car, a house, and a dog.”

So funny! When the blonde girl in the pink parka from the video still has her geeky glasses on she resembles our Dutch actress/presenter Hannah Verboom. Beside that doppelganger effect, we like the fresh tunes from the band Cha-Cha. Discovered via a fellow blog, RDuJour. And as we like British bands and their cool sense of style…We could ‘ve just ran into these guys at Brick Lane!
Topmodel Lara Stone is head over heels in love with hubby to be David Walliams, but that little cloud of hapiness didn’t stop her to carefully choose a designer to make her weddingdress.
The British have an intense relationship with tea. No country where you can find more sorts and flavours of tea, except China and India maybe…And tea in England almost never goes without something sweet.
