SCRAPS...


*Right, so all I need for next spring/summer are the legs of an adolescent Russian/Eastern European model. OK. I'm sure someone's selling them on the internet...

*I hear on the grapevine that Sofia Coppola hasn't been resting on her pregnant laurels. She's been meeting with Charlotte Rampling. For what reason I don't know, but that's a collaboration I'd love to see happen...

*Apologies for the delay in posting my Bust Magazine Paris article. I don't have a scan of it but I have the pdf, I just don't know where to put it so you can link to it. Some kind of hosting fandangle? If anyone knows, let me know...

*I saw plenty of thigh high flat boots on skinny Parisian girls this time last year. They actually looked quite chic, usually toning down the Tina Turner connotations by pairing them with a chunky cardigan and jeans. Now I keep seeing them on chunky thighed British girls, often worn with inadvisable puffball skirts. I thought London was supposed to be the trendsetting city...

*I've forgotten the last time it stopped raining in London. The ground is so waterlogged now that the rain just slides around on the surface. Sometimes it seems to stop but water still leaks out of the sky and drips off the trees.

*Is it just me or wasn't the whole sporty vibe present in many of the collections so far hugely reminiscent of a certain late 90s Prada collection? Some used the shiny fabric, mesh and strips of vinyl as a starting point, which they then made their own. Others...

Great 'scraps'... and what grapevine was the Sofia-Charlotte news on? Rampling is so amazing.

Btw, I bought your Bust magazine- I will attempt to send you a scan via my prehistoric scanner.

Oh thank you, that would be great! I felt I should have mentioned I couldn't put any designery or expensive places in my Bust piece because of their demographic blah blah...
The Sofia/Rampling rumour was somewhere! on the internet, I can't remember exactly where, but it seemed like a reliable source! We'll have to see, maybe they're just mates!

Charlotte Rampling is one of the most incredible women. She just gets better and better.

As for the Bust article, haven't seen it here yet, but you can convert the PDF to a picture file and upload it that way. I'm happy to do it for you if you like, just email it over.

The thigh high flat boots sound amazing a la parisienne, but what a horror story with the London version. Shame. Now I want to get a pair, they must be horrendously expensive, non?
