Introducing: Timur Kim

Timu Kim SS15 1

What better time to discover a few new designers than the New Year, eh? Well, to be honest any time of year is a good time to learn about the up and coming créatifs who will soon be shaping our sartorial worlds and wardrobes. It’s also slightly questionable whether the last week of January can still be considered “the new year” but you know what I mean. This particular designer is one who I’ve been meaning to post about for a while now but as is always the way, everything got very busy and I haven’t managed to until now. In a mere matter of weeks Timur Kim will be unveiling his AW15 collection (scary!) so I thought I’d better get on with sharing the SS15 designs that first caught my eye pretty pronto…

Style Switch Up

Style Switch Up

If you read yesterday’s party post then you might have clocked a sly mention of a imminently impending feature on switching up one’s style. I know loads of you guys have blogs of your own (a fair few of which I’ve checked out) and I don’t know whether you ever find yourself planning on writing certain posts for ages and ages and somehow not getting around to doing it. Months pass and you berate yourself for not having written that piece which you just know would be killer and promise you’ll do it this weekend.

Well, that’s the exact story with today’s fash feature…

Dining with Thakoon, Partying with YSL

Thakoon London Dinner

Social media is a funny thing. When you meet up with a colleague, friend or family member who you haven’t seen in a while, it’s a pretty safe bet that you already know how they spent their holidays, their latest work news, recent sales buys and most likely what they ate for breakfast that morning. This isn’t exactly a revelation but it particularly dawned on me at a dinner last week as I sat next to Sunday Times Style Fash Features Editor, Pandora Sykes and found myself congratulating her on various achievements and cooing over her new kitten, all information gleaned from Instagram, before she’d so much as opened her mouth. This is on one level hugely efficient and means that if you have had a recent professional triumph, killer purchase or addition to the family you can bask in the interest and admiration of others without having to go through the thoroughly un-British process of telling them yourself. On the other hand, and as much as I love social media, it’s undeniably changing the way we interact with one another IRL and is, occasionally, rather creepy. Anyway, getting back to the point of this waffle, As I’m sure many of you guys spotted on my various social media platforms, last Tuesday I was lucky enough to spend a fair bit of the day and evening in the company of none other than Thakoon Panichgul…
