101 London Date Ideas: The Ultimate Guide to Dating in the City

That time of year is fast approaching. By that time of year, I am alluding to V Day, the big Valentines. The one day of the year when everyone is expected to be on a date. If you’re not in a relationship / marriage / convent and haven’t started cuffing then you need to get on that ASAP in order to find the one (or someone) for V Day. Once they are well and truly cuffed, you then need to work out where you’re going to go. That’s where we come in. We have devised the ultimate guide of date […]

Dr. Martens

For the past few years Dr. Martens have been trawling the streets of London again. From teenagers to adults, there seems to be a revival since their popular birth in 1960. The reason behind their success lies in their effortless unisex style, which combines contemporary and heritage. Created by Klaus Marten, when he was nursing a broken foot, Dr Martens has had such a deep association with youth culture that even books have been written about them. The historical weight attached is an incomprehensible mix of Victorian and punk former times, transforming us from the skinhead and Goth subcultures of […]

Good Charma

Pam Fink, the New York based jewellery designer, has devised a jewellery range that incorporates all her beliefs and loves.  A peripatetic traveller, after exploring Southeast Asia and Indonesia, Fink fell in love with Bali and its exuberant culture.  It was during her fourth visit that the invasion of Iraq took place, which inspired Fink to design jewellery which would exude her values of peace and love.  Coupled with inspiration from her grandmother’s exotic jewellery collection, along with her father’s superstition, Good Charma was created. With ten themes to choose from such as luck, friendship, love, protection or peace, and […]

Gisele Ganne

Freshly out of The Royal College of Art, Gisele Ganne is already dazzling the macrocosm of the jewellery world.  Her Oxymoronic style unites the macabre and the beautiful and in her first collection, her pieces are inspired by Victorian mourning jewellery.  Gisele explains,”Mourning is not just about dead people; it is also about dead relationships and decaying marriages and the divorce jewellery refers to old and contemporary wedding customs.”  Yet, before you’re put off by the sombre style, it is the paradox in Ganne’s work that makes it stand out.  Along with a slightly grave undertone, her jewellery is vibrant, abundant in bright colours and […]

Best Dressed 09

Best Dressed lists for 09 is named by Vanity Fair and it’s quite a list. Brad Pitt managed to make it on there for apparently his love of accessories. We hope they are talking about his love for accessories like sunglasses and man-bags not his children. But we must say Angelina Jolie does make a rather good accessory for him. Unfortunately she did not make this years prestigious list. There were some first time names like actresses Penelope Cruz and Anne Hathaway who both made it onto the women’s list which is not always easy. Also to make the list […]
