I'm currently ploughing through all the subjects, finding out meticulously what they do, purely on the basis of their absorbing profile in Apartamento, but I thought I'd start off with Vuokko Eskolin-Nurmesniemi and her beautiful home in Kuosaari in Helsinki, photographed by Kaarle Hurtig. A...

Check out Proenza Schouler's latest e-commerce wonder: the Mochila collection. The perfect blend of tribal chic and high-fashion, the mochila wallet and tote would be an ideal addition to any closet (not to mention, a wonderful last minute gift for your fashionista friend). The wallet...

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...

The reason being I really couldn't miss out Proenza Schouler. One of my favourite designers ever expertly delivered their Fall 2011 at New York Fashion Week. With low slung ponytails and aztec prints, the collection had a strong tribal feel to it. Strong colours such as yellow, orange and...

By the by, a reader astutely pointed out the possibilities of latex allergies but MA have since verified that the coat is 100% polyurethane and therefore safe to wear. Still, the rare occurence of this pristine ground of snow as well as my deliberate avoidance of food sauces for the day...

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...

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...

Although Proenza Schouler's line doesn't lack shoulder bags, it felt like a strong addition; hardware has always been one of PS's strong suits when it comes to brand recognition, and the squared chain links and hollowed front closure would fit well in the brand's hardware pantheon....

>> 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...

My aunts and uncles may not know their Proenzas from their Chris Kanes but they do know how to touch up a nice bit of cashmere or leather. The mild weather here (12 degrees on Christmas day???) has meant a light-ish jacket like this one has come in handy. I've spent at least half an hour...
