Summer styling ... crisp white, pastels and a hint of gold.


Spring/Summer Chanel 2015 ... the glamour of white linen and gold accessories.


Summer wardrobe ... elegance and organisation on a small scale.

Deirdre Brennan - Saturday, May 03, 2014
Here is my edit of UK H&G's 50 Iconic Objects of Desire .... most of which you will know so well.  Each is aesthetically beautiful, classic in design and functional.

the bialetti moka


the tolix stool


the smeg fridge


the aalto vase


the louis ghost chair
the le creuset


the billy bookcase


the anglepoise 1227


the liberty print ....

and of course the list goes on and on and includes many personal favourites like the barbour jacket, chanel rouge noir nail varnish and the burberry trench.  Items one just can't live without !!

chanel's little black jacket

Deirdre Brennan - Friday, August 31, 2012



The exhibition everyone is talking about .... Chanel's The Little Black Jacket.


This project by Chanel's creative director Karl Lagerfield, along with former Paris Vogue editor- in-chief Carine Roitfeld, made its debut in Tokyo .... gathering force as it swept on to New York, Taipei and Hong Kong.  Next stop London .... (the Saatchi Gallery of course) and Moscow !!


Coco once said  "fashion isn't just present in dresses  ... fashion is in the air, it's borne by the wind, we sense it, we breathe it, it's in the sky and on the tarmac, it's everywhere, it comes from ideas custom, events ..."


For an update on how to incorporate your Little Black Jacket .... Marie Claire's September Issue (page 56) gives you some suggestions .... it's timeless !!
