Surreal, sinister, sexy: too creepy to look at, too beautiful to look away

It stands to reason that the cover shoot of Bambi Magazine‘s latest issue should be this one. It exists at the surreal place where the lines of shocking and stunning intersect; where you might be too disturbed to want to keep looking but too intrigued to look away. Like a horror movie watched through parted fingers – as if they might offer some flimsy protection from the nightmare being projected on screen – it draws you into its empty corridors and clinical white walls and leaves you there in capable, latex-gloved hands. But capable of what exactly?

David Bowie + Paul Smith

Paul Smith and David Bowie? That sounds like a bit more old-school British cool than the world can handle. And yet, clashing music and fashion together, the two have collaborated to produce a special limited-edition red vinyl of Bowie’s The Next Day.

Can't wait to her this bad boy...

Daft Punk have Oasis' album chart record in their sights

Daft Punk are on course to smash Oasis' 16-year U.K. chart record for the fastest-selling album thanks to the success of their new release Random Access Memories.

Oasis' 1997 album Be Here Now sold 650,000 in its first week, but pre-sales suggest the French dance music duo could pass that figure when Random Access Memories is released on Friday (17May13).

If Daft Punk crash into the top of the U.K. album countdown, as expected, they'll score a chart double as their new single Get Lucky is set to spend a fourth week at number one on Sunday (19May13).

Geometrhique - a new jewellery brand by a fab friend of mine!

Finally, after all of these years, one of my bezzies has decided to launch her own jewellery brand. Obsessed with geometry, chunky jewellery like me and a love for the nature, she has decided to call her jewellery brand Geometrhique which goes hand in had with what she has been creating all these years.

Check out her stuff and like her on Facebook!

Alice + Olivia Fall 2013 Ready-to-Wear Collection

Stacey Bendet is an unapologetic maximalist. And her new Alice + Olivia collection expressed that more-is-more approach in a multitude of ways. Photos won't do justice to the variety of textures here, which Bendet tended to mash up and play off one another within looks. To pick an example of her approach, take one gold-toned look comprised of a patchwork faux fur, a wholly beaded striped top, and a glittery coated-wool miniskirt. Bendet showed that ensemble with a leopard-print scarf, tiger-print bag, and knee-high tan platform boots. She's always adding. 

Elsewhere, there were boiled wools, bouclĂ©, popcorn knits with embedded pearls, bonded-leather knit jackets, laser-cut and embroidered leather pants, and a panoply of laces and brocades. Not all the looks were as texturally dense—there was a slouchy little beaded suit, and the most memorable outfit matched a simple navy turtleneck with a gown-size skirt in a vivid tropical print. These were outliers, though, which speaks to Bendet's devotion to multiplicity. It may not spell coherence, but as a strategy, it's rather sly—no matter your personal style, you'd have been hard-pressed not to find something here you liked, whether it was the cool bonded-knit motorcycle jacket, or the metallicized ski sweater, or a little brocade tee, or a boudoir-ish feather-trimmed frock from the Alice + Olivia eveningwear capsule. Bendet offers an array of propositions and invites girls to pick and choose.
