ISABELLA BLOW WITH A WONDERFUL POMPOM CREATION

I love hats!!! I have been collecting them for years, but it is often a rather solitary passion as there are so few opportunities to wear them in public. With the Stephen Jones show on at the V&A and wedding season about to start, perhaps I can persuade more of you to start exporing the infinite pleasures wearing a good hat offers. We are considering holding a few hat parties here at 40 WiNKS in the near future. I am attaching a couple of pictures of the glorious Isabella Blow, who certainly knew a thing or two about the subject, and also a stunning portrait by Irving Penn, which you can find at the upcoming sale at Phillips de Pury. I think hats are cool and sexy! If you think so too, get in touch….

MORE PARTYING AT PHILLIPS DE PURY… by David

IRVING PENN

I have just received an invitation through for another fantastic party at Phillips de Pury… they have an auction of Photographs coming up on the 16th of May here in London. Viewing starts on Saturday the 9th with a Reception from 5.00 to 8.00 PM. We can’t guarantee that Marc Newson will be there (sorry, Kelli!), but there will be work from some of my favourite photographers, including the likes of Paulo Roversi, Nick Knight, Robert Polidori and one by the lovely Mark Seliger of Heidi Klum as Jayne Mansfield (I mention this because I was actually photographed by Mark a year or so ago as Andy Warhol…!!). If you love photography as much as I do, make sure you get down there or check out their online catalogue for more information.
