the lovely folks at apparel magazine were nice enough to ask us to think of one garment coming for next season that we were pretty excited about - how could we go past this bernhard willhelm dress?? click to enlarge the article, and a huge thanks to apparel for the very kind words!
take a look at this wonderful article by diane pernet on marjan pejoski and his label ktz - we love how they describe the ktz collection delivering soon "the pulse of the current collection is a 90's party vibe that uses a powerful symbol of a cross mixed with tribal influences from papua new guinea.". think quilted tribal applique on over sized tee's, metallic and jewel encrusted crosses (very prince and the new power generation...) and interlocking rope prints reminiscent of early versace. can't. hardly. wait.
zoo magazine is pretty awesome too, and currently available at borders. snap it up!!

it's easy to forget on your daily trawl of the blogs that they are in-fact an amazing way to connect with like minded people - blogs after all are a small yet intimate glimpse into someones world, where they are willing to share their current obsessions, thoughts and beliefs. 'stop it right now' was recently introduced to us, and we were immediately smitten with her killer style, her love of ann-sofie back (coming to children of vision this season), and her dry sense of humour. after getting in contact she was lovely enough to do a little write up about the store, and my label 'jimmy d' and the new spring/summer collection due in-store in august. awwww bless!!
make sure to check out 'stop it right now' here, you'll be inspired we promise!
