I seem to be ticking off all the things that I poo poo-ed as a youngster, eating my words with gusto and shedding away that pessimistic negativity that I just loved pulling out as a defence mechanism. Getting married? Where once I was adamant I'd never say 'I do', I'm unabashedly thinking,...

In 2006, Prada sold its stake in Jil Sander to British private equity firm Change Capital Partners, so there's no chance of lingering bad blood between Sander and Bertelli causing trouble now. Of course, the elephant in the room now is if — or really, when— Simons will go to Dior." Photo:...

I think I doth protest too much against going out West as though it were the cliched thing for a vaguely East/North-orientated London person to be anti-West London. I do like it ONCE I get out there. It's the journey stretching west beyond Knightsbridge that seems to take its toll. Especially...

Nam of Street FSN was taunting me with a brilliant pink camoflage panelled jacket (top right-hand side of pic below) from the General Idea A/W 11-12 collection when we were hanging out in Florence during Pitti Uomo back in February. Steve even caught this bit of camo action on camera. I did...

TOKYO, Japan — Although he's behind one of the biggest fashion brands to come out of Japan, Issey Miyake detests being called a fashion designer. Maybe a designer, even a sculptor, but not that frivolous, trend-watching, conspicuous consumption known as fashion. What he has pursued since he...

Simona Citarella herself has also got in on the action with a pair of white cut-out shoes from her Simona Vanth shoe label. Young Milanese milliner Lika has created some criss-cross cut-out straw sun hats, with panama styles that are also adorned by the signature ceramic bows by Cor Sine...

>> You're going to have to endure some sentimental mush as I'm deep in the process of packing up six years worth of belongings (plus the remnants from my flat before this current one, where Style Bubble first began) and inadvertently stumble upon things that send me on mad Google Image...
