Well, after years of working in fashion and having been influenced by more of them than I care to remember, I would say a style icon is someone who has developped and expressed his - or her - personality through his fashion sense more successfully than the rest of us mortals and who,...

Inspired by the endless "scènes de ménage" and dissatisfied housewives throughout film history (from Jean Harlow in Dinner at Eightto Carmen Maura in Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown or Thelma & Louise), the story was shot by Jeremy Zaessinger and styled by my friend Ray Tetauira and...

Unbelievable! Burberry Prorsum Christopher Bailey again manages to surprise and please me. As you might have read before, I'm a huge Burberry Prorsum fan. This latest collection too, I think, is fantastic. This collection is very casual and there are not so many trenches this time. Also,...

Burberry Prorsum, I go for understated chic. 2. What does your house look like? A. Priceless antiques co-exist with contemporary designer furniture, also priceless. Oh, and I posess a lot of modern art: paintings, hanger installations... you know, sweetie. B. I don't know... there is a...

The Wedding of the Century has taken place - and I admit I watched it live on BBC while gossiping with my friends about everything: the trees in Westmister Abbey (they added a beyond beautiful, slightly medieval forest-like touch that went great with the dress), the Spanish royalty's looks...

It feels like it was only yesterday that we impatiently awaited the PFW craziness, crashing into every show dressed in impossible outfits (and more than impossible heels) and partying every single night like there was no tomorrow. A couple of years have gone by. Now fashion week means stress...

Vivid metallics were the highlight of the Burberry Prorsum show. Trench coats—a signature look for the designer—were played up with beautiful hues of magenta, purples and bright blues. The models walked the runway looking ready to take on the world, with matching handbags and bold ankle strap...

Venerable names like Burberry and such bright new stars as Christopher Kane have dazzled London Fashion Week, giving the so-called poor relation of international shows some high-profile praise. Squeezed awkwardly between the more prestigious New York and Milan fashion shows, London always...

an outstanding fashion film styled by my friend René Gloor and shot by Nicolas Valois! I'm a really big fan of this one, not only because David Lean's Lawrence of Arabia (the movie on which the fashion film was based) is one if my all-time favourites, but also because René and Nicolas's film...
