>> I've barely time to go to the loo/eat/remember what day it is so do forgive me if I'm repro-ing content over the next week or so whilst Paris is going on. I'm banging out show reports left, right and centre but not for the blog which will always be a sacred place devoted to randomness and unstructured tittle tattle. That's how you like it, right?
Therefore in that scattered vein, with no relation to what's going on at the shows, here's a set of photos I did for Stella McCartney to play around with what is their most famed bag style, the Falabella as well as some of their pre-fall pieces of clothing and shoes. Not to sound like a spokesperson but as I said in the short interview, it really is the sort of bag that works in many style contexts in that it's both decorative and utilitarian. Much like a lot of McCartney pieces don't announce their presence by shouting and screaming but by having noticeably unusual detailing, either in the cut or in the fabric choices. In this instance, black and white satin cut into a Polly Maggoo-esque mini-dress, a feather printed jacquard flounce-sleeved top, a mid-calf and full red skirt, and the snakeskin and tortoiseshell adorned sturdy loafers have those attributes. All the easier to match up to the Falalalalalabellalalalala. That's no accidental typo. That's just how I say the name in my head.
