Sundays often start like that. A long, long lie-in after a longish night with guests, then a hearty breakfast, a bit of housework such as hanging the washing to dry, making lunch, and lying back on the couch reading ELLE.
No matter where I have worked so far, explicitly declared dress-down Fridays have always eluded me. Still, I can't help noticing how everyone breaks out the jeans to mark the beginning of the week-end, permitted or not by the dress code.
It must be great to have clashes and contradictions for signature style. Aussie designers Heidi Middleton and Sarah Jane Clarke are totally devoid of self-imposed restrictions, as is worthy of the free spirit and confidence of the strong, the obscure and the beautiful. To me, crayon-coloured Seekerstate is their best collection to date – and the strongest vitamin shot I’ve had in a while.
Must say upfront: I’ve never been a Felder Felder fan. That’s probably due to more than my taste. After all, what’s not to like about the uber-coolness of the continental-bred, London-based cool-girl twins with great PR and a great personal style? Wild and wearable, full of rock & roll, I sort of always expected their collections to call out to me, and it just wouldn’t happen. Until now.
