AMAZING HOTEL ROOM DESIGN FROM TILT

The Au Vieux Panier Hotel in Marseille, France has an annual redecoration or ‘reconceptualisation’ policy on their 5 rooms.  World-renowned graffiti artist Tilt has had his hands and spray cans on this one.  He’s called his design ‘Panic Room’.  It’s not hard to see why.

Zoran Lucić : SUCKER FOR SOCCER

Check out these fantastic posters featuring some of football’s all-time greats designed by Zoran Lucić.

I’ve only included a small handful of my favourites in this post, but you can see the full range by clicking here.

I absolutely love them, but I am surprised that the collection doesn’t feature more former Yugoslav players in there, given Lucić’s Bosnia & Herzegovinian roots.

You can find Zoran’s profile on the Behance Network here.

LONDON FASHION WEEK RETROSPECTIVE: DAY THREE


MARIOS SCHWAB

Day three of London Fashion Week brought with it some sophisticated, grown up shows.  Nicole Farhi’s dramatic, Black Swan-eque collection and Paul Smith’s laid back tailoring were just two of the big names to hit the runway.

My favourite collection of the day was from Marios Schwab (pictured above).  The collection was 1940’s-inspired, creating a wardrobe ideal for any vintage femme fatale.


MATTHEW WILLIAMSON

Although this collection featured some of the beautiful, feminine maxi dresses that Williamson has become famous for, my favourite looks featured metallic brocades clashed with turquoise, orange and burgundy.


VIVIENNE WESTWOOD RED LABEL

Casual but tailored, layered yet sharp, Westwood’s collection, as always, is the epitome of British style.

LONDON FASHION WEEK RETROSPECTIVE: DAY TWO


TEMPERLEY LONDON

After reviewing day one of London Fashion Week I fell a bit behind with my posts, so here are the retrospectives from the rest of London Fashion Week, albeit in rapid succession…

For me day two didn’t have the same impact as day one, there was some nice tailoring from Jasper Conran and Todd Lynn but I preferred the more whimsical shows from the day before.

My favourite collection from day two of London Fashion Week was Temperley London (pictured above) which showed an ornate, almost regal collection featuring metallics mixed with floral prints.


HOUSE OF HOLLAND

I’m not normally a great lover of Henry Holland’s designs but this poptastic collection was bold, bright and fun.  Highlights for me were the chevron dresses and the use of houndstooth.


MOSCHINO CHEAP AND CHIC

This cute, retro collection used pastel colours and 60’s shapes to create a whimsical , off-the-wall collection.
