Wee finds: Eley Kishimoto a/w 2009


I trust all you clever clogs have had your fill of Fashion Week thus far, thanks to all the rather brilliant coverage on Style.com (for some reason, I prefer the 'details' shots over the full shots), and countless other online sources. So whilst you don't necessarily need my gushing to add to the cacophony of endless gush, I can't help myself but comment on a few wee favourites.


Now, I know I'm terribly predictable when it comes to personal style, but I had a big fat grin on my face when I spied Eley Kishimoto's homage to retro jetset glamour in London this week. Wheee – it was wings au go-go at the show, just add a few martinis and Jetsons lounges and those dolly-birdies would have been hopping down the runway.


I love Eley Kishimoto as much for their trademark quirky-girliness as for their amazingly vibrant prints – oh, the prints!, which never fail to set my heart a-flutter.


And get a load of the hosiery! Just adorable.



Makes me dream of the halycon days when flying was actually glamorous. You can see the full collection at NYmag.com.

    I had as much fun looking at the tights as well. I miss seeing glam. We had the coolest chic live in town (oh she had style’s) and my friend and I used to enjoy our saraphim sightings. Alas she moved :(
    Hey, at least I come come here and see a bit glam.
