Night Walking

I'm not going to lie. I became obsessed with the Twilight books over the Summer (by obsessed I mean read-the-entire-series-in-a-week obsessed). I never, however, watched the film and drooled over Robert Pattinson or hated Kristin Stewart because she drooled over him.

So last night I finally watched the film and was really unimpressed. I can't pinpoint my disappointment but it just wasn't as epic as it was in my head. I don't really fancy Robert Pattinson (more Edward) but Issue 9 of AnotherMan might convince me otherwise, especially when shot by Hedi Slimane.

Featuring the Twilight teen, Tim Blanks, David de Rothschild, Sam Taylor-Wood and a whole host of fashion stories, the latest issue is out tommorow.

LFW Street Style

Whilst sitting around waiting for shows to start I indulged in a little street style snapping. The boys are really stepping up their fashion game as you can see from the pictures below.

Digging the poncho (the oh so tousled hair and unshaven face are also quite nice).

Love love love the fur coat and glasses, definately something I'd like to see more boys wearing.

I was mad about Rick Owens and Gareth Pugh AW09, so this outfit is definiately a fave. The shaven head is possibly a bit scary, but on the whole, a brave look.

Straight from the Nicole Farhi show and I adore the fur collar (so much so I now own one myself) and lace leggings. The Miu Miu bag compliments the look, not too gothic but not too pretentious.

I love this look from head to toe. The Vivienne Westwood boots and necklace, the Ray Bans, the gorgeous orange hair and beret - it all works so well together. Of all the ladies, this is easily my favourite.

Karolin Wolter

Chanel Iman

Abby Lee

Laura Blokhina
Daisy Lowe

Naomi Campbell

Issa was, well, incredible. I was left speechless on more than one occasion and not just because of the collection. I'm a self-confessed Abby Lee addict so when she walked through the door I almost had a heart attack. The same goes for Coco Rocha, Chanel Iman and of course the formidable Naomi Campbell.

When I'm able to actually write anything useful or coherant regarding Issa and Fashion Week in general more posts will ensue. I am still starstruck / speechless.

LFW Nicole Farhi

Constance Jablonski

Kamila Filipcikova, Bette Franke and Sara Blomqvist

Anastasija Kondratjeva

Tao Okamoto

Coco Rocha

Chanel Iman

Backstage at Nicole Farhi was so unbelievably relaxed in comparison to yesterdays shows. The clothes were also much more conservative however I loved both of Chanel's looks.

The horrid cliche words, classic and wearable spring to mind although it would have been nice to see an injection of excitement.

LFW Mary Katrantzou

Ekat Kiseleva, Laura Blokhina

Alana Zimmer

Mary Katrantzou showed a collection made almost entirely of cocktail dresses. Inspired by blown glass, SS10 was head to toe with intense colour and digital.

I really enjoyed this playful yet structured collection however I'll be interested to see an ordinary human being wearing one of the pieces. Will the woman wear the dress or will the dress wear the woman?

LFW Mark Fast

Backstage at Mark Fast was entirely overwhelming. The space was small for one designer, let alone two (he showed alongside Mary Katrantzou at NEWGEN) and people were barking at each other left right and centre.

I really like the Mark Fast aesthetic and his "cobwebby knitted dressing" has dominated 2009 fashion, however, I'd like to see more feathers and more swarovski next season. Diamonds are a girls best friend, after all.
