By putting ourselves in the cotton field, we found a deeper understanding of the entire manufacturing process, from planting to production. Sustainability begins with the soil in which we plant those tiny cotton seeds and continues through the dying process of our garments. Lisa tells us...

seeing john humphrys in the flesh and my friend gigi being invited to sit in 'the chair' during the break made it the best day of my life. 5. my green suede and snakeskin heels at my end of year ball. 6. armed with flask of coffee and layers just before going to the library. 7. ashburne...

(not to be confused with body bags..rather less morbid) remember back in 2006 when the way you wore your it-bag was just as crucial as the bag itself? the 'resting in the crook of your elbow' model carry look became the order of the day but I much prefer the unfussy 'cross-body' way-leaves your

The day was free of any hocus pocus (I don't really buy Friday 13th creepiness) and well spent. I experienced an odd practice simulation of a MRI scan as I'm having one today as part of a neuroscience experiment. While I was inside I was thinking of 'IRM' by Charlotte Gainsbourg which...

For this reason the pyjama style jackets that Topshop have been rolling out recently have a nice 'beddish' quality about them without leaving the wearer psychologically confused (yes) about their state of undress. Winter seems to be the solution when layering is the saviour of tricky trends...

I didn't go to the hairdressers until I was about 13 because a seat in front of a television or in the middle of the field by our caravan (no need for hoovering hair) was where my strands used to live their final moments. Advocates for being blonde include: Kasia Struss, Jerry Hall sliding...

I'm wearing my 'Robert Ford tunic' (it reminds me of the thin cotton garments worn in The Assassination of Jesse James) along with my faithful jeans and sunglasses from Topshop, bag from Cow Vintage and New Balance trainers. The carrot cake turned out to be absolutely delicious, though I...

Packed into my lesportsac are a couple of pairs of high waisted cotton shorts, some airy tops (breezy armpits are important in this hot weather!) and my trainers as well as some reading material. I'm really looking forward to taking a couple of days to chill out in the glorious sunshine and...

It's also worth having a little peruse of their blog Ou est la Discotheque(yes, the marrying of two discotheques is completely coincidental) which I personally like for the fact it combines thrifting guides, pistachio brownie recipes and tips about the best markets for weekend rambling. All...
