Ossie Clark: The King of King’s Road Reigns Again

Chelsea’s LFW survivors were out in force last night at Proud Chelsea to celebrate the relaunch of the label Ossie Clark London with a retrospective of Clark’s contemporaries featuring unseen photography by Norman Parkinson, Robert Whitaker, Jim Lee, Eric Swayne, Romano Cagnori and co. Although the painterly theatrics of Parkinson are perhaps the most widely associated with the designer, it’s the more documentary style black and white shots by Terry O’Neill, Romano Cagnori and Eric Swayne that really capture the zeitgeist of Seventies King’s Road. Look out for O’Neill’s snap of Jane Shrimpton sauntering barefoot down the street, Cagnori’s Birkin […]

I Heart Diet Coke

Coke has always loved a limited edition and this year is no different with Marc Jacobs taking on the role of pimping up the Diet Coke cans.

Each decade echoes traits from the time; the 80s showing an empowered woman, the 90s showing a fashion trendsetter and the 00s is along the same lines as Marc Jacobs own spring/summer 13 collection. Jacobs himself is quoted as saying "Diet Coke is an icon… and I love […]

Most importantly, it is helping me to know how that identity […]
