A.P.C. Solveig Shoe

“There’s no place like home” whispered Astrid as she clicked the heels of her new pair of A.P.C. ruby Solveig shoes. She had listened to her date for hours talking only about himself, as though he didn’t think she had anything interesting or worth while to contribute to the conversation. “There’s no place like home” she whispered one more time, wishing she could teleport herself out of the restaurant and into a bar with a gin and tonic and her favourite indie rock band playing, far, far away.

Gucci Style by Mégal Grouchka for Grazia France

“Yowzah! said Maxine out loud as she flicked through the pages of Grazia France on her lunch break and spotted Gucci Spring / Summer 2019 styled to absolute perfection. “It’s like women’s tailoring with a disco accent, and who doesn’t love a bit of disco” she thought to herself, wondering if she could ever pull off such a sophisticated and sassy look before acknowledging that yes, she definitely could.

In Character: Tilda Swinton in A Bigger Splash

While Tilda Swinton’s famous rockstar Marianne Lane remains mostly silent during her stay on the remote Sicilian island of Pantelleria in Luca Guadagnino’s 2015 film “A Bigger Splash”, her summer holiday wardrobe by then creative director of Christian Dior Raf Simons speaks absolute volumes. Harry Hawkes (Ralph Fiennes) on Marianne: “She’s the woman of the century.

Gucci Ophidia Bag

Janice always marched to beat of her own drum. To describe her style as eclectic was an understatement and to define her look on any given day could be perplexing for those with no imagination. However on a beautiful sunny day as Janice walked home from work there it was in the window at Gucci – the perfect companion for every outfit and one which truly spoke to her go-paint-something-geek-chic self, the Gucci Ophidia bag. Gucci Ophidia bag featuring the double G detail, an archival Gucci code from the 70’s. Visit: gucci.com

Old CÉLINE

As Juliette walked towards the group of protesters her heart began to race. There they were, in their thousands, her sisters, her kindred spirit fashionistas carrying banners and signs, and crying out for the return of their beloved Phoebe Philo-era CÉLINE. There was Camille in her scarf-print silk shirt from Spring/Summer 2011; Celeste in her plaid laundry bag coat from Autumn/Winter 2013; Lucie in her brush stroke print dress from Spring/Summer 2014; Ines in her glove shoes from Spring Summer 2015; Valentine in her slip dress from Spring/Summer 2016; and Romy with her Trapeze bag in one hand and red posca pen in another, who’d spent the morning roaming the streets defacing posters for the new CELINE campaign. “Bring back Phoebe, long live CÉLINE!”. If you have strong feelings of nostalgia and have trouble relating with the new CELINE you can follow @oldceline on Instgram. Image: Barrettes from CÉLINE Spring 2015.

Nancy

“Do you dream about me?” she asked him. “All the time” he answered. She had been in control of their conversation from the moment they sat down in the emerald leather booth, playing with a silver charm bracelet dangling from her right wrist as she slowly and skilfully coaxed his life story out of him. He liked this and he liked her. Their waitress placed two cups of coffee on the formica table and a slice of apple pie with two forks “for you to share, it’s on the house” she said to them smiling. The forks looked too tiny and fragile to cut through such an enormous slice he thought to himself. Later they shared an umbrella as they walked together in the rain, her moving the umbrella towards him, worried the rain would ruin his leather jacket, him manoeuvring her away from puddles so they wouldn’t spoil her boots. They walked past the restaurant where they first met two weeks ago, her working the bar where he was sitting alone, nursing an Old …
