Camille Over the Rainbow

Fan girl-ing hardThursday, June 29 2017

In more ways than one. Who knew that a portable air device could provide so much relief (that heatwave really hit us hard). And by relief, I obviously mean air.

So basic. So necessary.

When strangers are complimenting your outfit while offering you their wallets-worth to pinch an item out of your hand, you know you’re doing something right. I’m a fan.

Also fan girl-ing hard, the newly reinvented Vapormax. Bouncing around the neighbourhood before the streets come alive, in these gravity defying runners (hello lilac aka SS17’s newest most-seen shade on Trend Street – but jet-black be available for all you city cats), I couldn’t help but wonder whether they could truly cushion not only the air below my feet but also all my worries away.

La vie en rose etc…

Gabrielle Coeur GrenadineMonday, June 26 2017

One of the things they don’t tell you about leaving your home country is how much you will miss the little things that make your life so much sweeter. Like grenadine à l’eau. A drink so simple in essence (pomegranate syrup and ice cold water) yet so confusing to the non-Francophile.

I can’t tell you how many words have been exchanged between myself and bemused barmen, as I try to request a simple ingredient, one that I can see sitting just there on the cocktail shelf. Believe me, I have always made a point of not becoming the cliché of the demanding Parisian, and inevitably fail as soon as I spot one of those bright cordial bottles.

So, when I met Gabrielle in London, (whose colour happened to be the perfect shade of pomegranate pink) I decided we should take a trip back to the land of grenadine à l’eau. Surely, Chanel‘s latest (and in this hue, sweetest) creation, deserves to visit the city of its ancestors? And since even Karl saw fit to bring back the maison’s traditionally overseas cruise show back to the homeland, I thought no better excuse to go big, and simply go home.

So we did. If you need us, we’ll most probably be chained together, in one of Gabrielle’s seven ways, en terrace sipping our worries away, before heading off to one of Paris’ most alluring spots. At the moment, we love le Cafe de la Poste, followed by a little tour round Musee Picasso. See you there?

Stripey side upMonday, May 22 2017

Coming out of hiding and heading straight for the spotlight (or, you know, my balcony) to soak in a little Milanese sun and share a few sunny MAX&Co stripes with you all.

As always, it’s been too long since my last visit, though for once I have an excuse besides travel: our every growing podcast (which I do hope you have found the time to tune into), has taken over all of my creative brain juices. All for a good cause, but time to get back on the world wide web bandwagon.

Homecoming queenMonday, March 27 2017

The butcher, the baker, the candlestick maker (or as 2017 would have it, the fishmonger, the grocer and the cold press juice maker) have all welcomed my homecoming to Chelsea Green with open arms. Or perhaps, have only batted an eyelid or two as I fall back into the routine of brazenly claiming their storefronts as a scenic prop to better show off my latest acquisitions.

Enter the Delvaux Mutin Mini [applause].

Don’t we look great together? Yeah, we think so too! Though best we get on our way now. Errands to run. Shop owners to appease. Life to perform.

 [End scene.]
