I just couldn’t resist including a story about Australian lingerie label ‘Cake‘, who produce fantastically sexy underwear for pregnant women… All deliciously naughty in my opinion!! Stockists in the UK include Seraphine in Kensington Church Street.

ALEXANDRA FARO – FASHION DESIGNER by David
SPRING/SUMMER 09 COLLECTION

SPRING/SUMMER 09 COLLECTION

Hungarian born fashion designer, Alexandra Faro, moved to London in 2004. After studying at the London College of Fashion she bravely decided to launch her own label. Alexandra popped over for a drink the other night to tell me about her new A/W collection, which all sounds rather fab and wonderful, but still very hush hush!!… Here in the UK, her designs are stocked exclusively by super cool ‘127 Brick Lane’, alongside the likes of Comme des Garcons and Maison Martin Margiela. Her previous collections there have all completely sold out, so if you are interested in getting something from her current S/S range, we would suggest you get down there sharpish!!

WHO STOLE ALL OUR CLOTHES, DARLING??

WHO STOLE ALL OUR CLOTHES, DARLING??

UP CLOSE AND PERSONAL…
A woman who doesn’t care about the lingerie she wears is a woman who needs a new relationship!! The fabulous 50s inspired collection from Victoria Holt and her label Fred and Ginger is a perfect homage to old fashioned luxury and sophistication, and is guaranteed to get those sparks flying again. Victoria used to work with Jenny Packham, so is someone who really understands how to make a woman feel glamorous and confident. What is so refreshing though is that she has recognised that some of us boys also enjoy wearing nice underwear, and her collection includes a range of briefs and boxer shorts in French silks, English cottons and Swiss jerseys… The collection is available from Selfridges, so pop down and check it out!!

HOT SHOTS FROM MARC ROGOFF by David

Marc Rogoff

HOT SHOTS
Quite a few people have been getting in touch asking me who took the fantastic pictures for the 40 WiNKS website… the genius behind the camera is the charming Marc Rogoff. Marc is a hugely talented fashion photographer (he was shooting Kate Moss just the other day, but I think that might all be a bit hush hush, so keep it to yourselves…). He is also passionate about interiors, and I don’t think it will be long before his work is popping up in all the top interior design mags. I am hoping to be doing some more work with Marc very soon (wearing my model hat again!!), so will keep you posted on that. In the meantime, check out his website (www.marcrogoff.com)… particularly if you are looking for a really great photographer to shoot for you. Marc is the man!!

SPANISH FASHION WITH REAL SEX APPEAL…
One of the hottest new stars on the Spanish fashion scene is Soledad Serna, whose label Manolita Watlin specialises in clothes for women who want something a bit different… we love her cool, funky, sophisticated look, and also love the fact that she is based in London!! We are hoping to persuade her to have a private viewing of her new collection at 40 WiNKS very soon, so if you are interested in attending, let us know…

Hanging out with Robert Pattinson by Kelli

Hunk or Skunk?

Hunk or Skunk?

The other day we had a photo shoot here at 40 WiNKS for cool, new magazine Fashion Music Style. Among the bands and musicians being shot was the Hollywood hunk, Robert Pattinson. I got to make “Bobby” a cup of tea and chat with him as the photographer and crew prepared for the shoot.
Yesterday The London Paper printed a story about Pattinson’s hygiene or lack there of stating that the actor was stinking up the set of ‘The Twilight Saga: New Moon’. This got me thinking, can a hunk still be sexy if he’s a bit smelly? Write me what you think and I will reply with details from my own personal encounter with the nostril offensive culprit in question.
