Miggy Gets Ready For The SUN

The lovely Miggy (from Miggy Likes The Internet) recently took a break to Trieste and packed herself a Black Neon twist bandeau bikini. Let the sun shine!

from Miggy...
Cat-eye sunnies via ebay, cute Twist Bandeau Bikini and a German novel to bury myself in ;)

''In the run up to fashion week in Berlin, I thought it might be a good idea to take myself (and my special someone) on a little break. If there’s one thing I have learned from all of my seasons at various fashion weeks, it’s that you need to be READY. A good bit of pure relaxation before and after the madness is completely necessary.
And if you follow me on Instagram or Twitter, then you already know that I have been embracing a few days of calm (before the fashion week storm) in unapologetically hot, Trieste.
The best food, the most chilled wine and the blazing sunshine…. Viva Italia!''


It's not often that I my desire turns to an obsession, but one brands collection that has made me fall in love like a school girl is MSGM. Thanks to Massimo Giorgetti in partnership with Paoloni Group, MSGM has captured my heart and my wardrobe aches! In particular the prints and styling are great....Leopard, zebra, coral, gold, sapphire blu, bright yellow and tropical prints.... I'm hooked.

Available to buy in the UK from ASOS.

Cockpit Arts Open Studio

Sunday saw a visit to Cockpit Arts open studio, having visited at christmas time it was good to see what new work the designers had been producing. Highlights for me were Lenique Louis, Ruth Tomlinson and Suzanne Goodwin (not to mention Scott Wilson, as I've wrote before about how great his work is I won't give deja vu)

Anna Dello Russo at H&M

04/10/12 is THE date to keep in your diary: H&M launch their accessories collaboration with Anna Dello Russo. Inspired by her unique sense of style and objects in her home the collection which spans jewellery, sunglasses, shoes and bags looks like something that will be worth getting excited about. I love ADR's italian flamboyant taste, I'm looking forward to the gold, leopard print, turquoise, chain and charms and more gold! Needless to say it's unlikely that I'll get my hands on anything as queues are not much fun but a nice thought nevertheless.

Tori Murphy Launches at Pulse

A great event for Tori's first collection launch. Elegant British made modern graphic luxury.
