Gucci SS14 x

Maison Bentley Style


This sinks into your bones like fairy dust.


A flavour of the eighties except the more conventional ending flashes past.


A silky intensity exuding pure class, you get a sense of high..and those shoes certainly help…


It’s like catching fire..

Laters, Kate x

Relaxed Rachel x

Maison Bentley Style


If Rachel Comey and I met we’d be BFs.  Seriously.


Her latest AW14 Collection is full of  laid back loucheness that manages to sing of both ease and statement.


Neoprene? No. Let’s beautifully quilt everything that moves.


The masculine elements lured away, replaced by feminine curves.

(NB: Wearing brogues without socks is an art form..get it wrong and an unfortunate sucking sound echoes with you down the street frightening small furry animals….just saying)


The colours..


The coat..


It takes nerve to be so every day, but this Collection packs a punch and leaves a powerful sense of self.

There’s no horrible wait for next Seasons to start (yet)..they’re all lined up like the most delectable dishes at a banquet.  But it’s not only the storyline, I’m also smitten by the fashions..and it’s the men’s rather than the ladies: The leather, the studding, the macho winter layering and enormous shaggy shoulders.  I lust.  A little bit of searching revealed that Helmut Lang’s 2012 Fall Collection was inspired by the series.  And how very very appropriate it looks as the Polar Vortex attempts to do it’s worst.  I’d bet good gold that that sheepskin coat above would be ready to…
