Monday, 28 June 2010


I was blessed on my last day in Paris this afternoon by the most sublime lady, YVETTE MORETTI, Yvette has been on "the scene" for years, at time of press she is 72 years young and going strong with her shop STENDHAL PARIS on rue Saint Honore, "the street of where fashion comes from, and just up the road from one of my favourite shops in the world COLETTE.
In the end I got myself a little closing present for Fashion Week which is a scent by Bugatti called PUREBLACK - to me is a sweet "scent homme" with undertones of daddy. Love Love Love.
See you next time Madamoiselle Moretti... Was just a great ending to a great week ...Je Taimbien X

The last show of the season for me, tired, worn out, sore feet and almost hungover from being awake. Had an amazing time. Dunhill which was hosted in The Ritz, Place Vend
ôme for me sums up modern London male, may a refined, West/'Sloany' Londoner. Very chic, relaxed and stiff at the same time. Great work from Kim Jones modernising the British classic brand, I absolutely love it.

Paris Gay Pride

A little summit summit from Gay Pride in Paris this sumer 2010...
The same as any huge gay calendar event anywhere in the world. Trannys, nannies, leather and rainbows, with cheesy 'bangin' music and a carnivorous carnival atmosphere; FUN(NY).

At the same time cuation is always required...

(a bar in Le Marais)


Henrik Vibskov

Interesting as always, this time the theme was some what nautical slash summer fait with buntings and wooden boats slash wheelbarows, pushed by models in the SS11 coolection for Henrik Vibskov. Set in the same venue as last years SS show in Lycée Turgot on rue de Turbigo
the wears where somewhat colourful as you would expect see; gq.com/style.

Diane Pernet

It has been nice hanging out this week in Paris for Mens shows. It was also nice sitting on the fashion bus next to Diane P from the WALTER VAN BEIRENDONCK show to K Van Assche. A little shot of her here.

Paris in June

Fuck Kappauf

Kris Van Assche

I had a bit of a mucho mucho day on the 25th, Kris Van Assche was one of the designers I managed to catch, set in a wearhouse, with a hunge white colorama roll Id say
about 50M long as the catwalk. Clean lines, greys and light blues, typical models and a top setting. I loved it but I will always love his SS collections.

Mens Fashion Week - Paris ... Yohji yamamoto

In true Yohji Style, the show was cool, set in a salon with bright lighting and wooden floorboards, there were feelings of tudor, floral and brocade - which I have seen a lot of so far this week. The music ranging from harpsichorded classical to tranquil techno, you can check the collection out on Mens Style.

Heres is a shot I got of the fluro lighting above my seat.

Mens Fashion Week - Paris ...

Amazing, is all I can say from the begging.

Just some great people, lovely silhouettes and patterns so far.
My main mission was to make sure Liam from Black Daniel had an easy time for his attendence to the Issey Miyake show and Looked amazing there and to complete my bit for Notion Magazine which you will see on the shelves in August.

Summer Time Wardrobes

I have most of my summer wardrobe but still adding to it for little while now, well let see how long we have stable or even nice weather for.

Here is a little scribble of a pair of shorts that I have designed, I really like the drawing myself
and thought I would share it with you.

I need to make them which I just haven't got round due to not having the time.

I have some amazing Ideas for colour palettes and fabrics, which will make the final beautiful. the insipration for the design and drawing comes from The Summer in Spain ("Mallorca, with the Kids"), Boats, Water and the Sky, Day Turning into Night and and Spanish Tourist Information Bureaus in the mid 90's.

If anyone wants to help me create them then if you like them for yourself we will make two pairs you keep on and I keep the other. Ill get the fabric and choose different colour for panels. Just a chilled out project but need to get them done soon cos the summer will be over...!

Just need someone to help who can make patterns and cut properly and is interested in the photo...

Get in touch.

MIMLXXXV Roman Numerals Make Me Happy... :)

After not uploading any posts for a while I have a few things that I need to put up like from the last two posts. One last thing I have been loving is the typeface of Roman text and the system of numbering using letters.....
