Maiko Takeda

Maiko Takeda is a Central Saint Martins college graduate. Her collection Cinematography presents the concept of wearing shadows as jewelry. The pieces are constructed from a thin metal with thousands of tiny holes in varying sizes. When the light hits the holes, an image is projected on the skin. Mind blowing.

She dreams in colour, she dreams in red

Judging by my recently dyed red hair and penchant for layering, I'm all nostalgic about 90s fashion... hold the button-snap tracksuit pants.
McQ by Alexander McQueen's Fall 2010 Collection speaks to my soul.

Preen Resort 2011

I like to class myself as an open-minded follower of fashion; constantly evolving with every seam overlocked. Browsing through the Resort 2011 collections though underwhelmed me and even Chanel had me doubting the direction that fashion is taking. Then came Preen. Simple designs in monochromatic colours highighted with bold pieces; a combination which always wins me over.

An unlikely combination

It's not often that you associate McDonald's with the fashion industry. Traditionally a fast-food restaurant with a menu well rehearsed by people of a lower socio-economic background (and the alcohol fuelled), McDonald's have attempted to market their (deliciously) horrible products to the fashion conscious. The concept has been launched at Fashion Weeks dotted all over the globe but I wonder how many of the fashion industry's finest would have dared enter. Does marketing really sway us that much? YES! I want a Big Mac!

J.Crew Men's

It's hard to focus your attention on the garments when your palms are getting sweaty from the vision of wood cabins in the French alps with any of these men in the proposed picture.

Length, layers and ladies

No better way to cover up that extra layer of warmth so lovingly (or resentfully) piled on over winter.
