London Calling

    The rain is pouring, BC parents are rabble-rabbling about report card-snubbed children...and life couldn't be sweeter. New York Fashion Week is a wrap, which means it's time for all of my favorite fashion darlings across the pond to flaunt their wares on the London catwalk. No room for menial everyday tasks or To-Do lists in the day planner, my Moleskine is chock full of Must-Sees and fresh scoutables. 

    In like British manner of hype is the release of Another Magazine's Sp/Su 2012 issue. Starring The Tree of Life's Jessica Chastain on the cover (rocking a most magnificent 40's pomp, I might add),  Another's latest features an intimate conversation between Sarah Burton and Susannah Frankel, which has me in fits of anticipation. Accompanying the piece are stills from She Builds Domes in the Air, a 16mm film exclusive. Directed by Catherine Sullivan, the film has model Kristen McMenamy stalking stunning and spectral in Burton's third collection since taking rein (and divine reign) of the McQueen house... 

       "Although there are elements of this collection that are quite dark, even sinister, there's always a romance to it, a delicacy. Empowerment and protection: working here, you always have to bring it back to Alexander."

     No words can express my impatience with the delay between the England release, and the Canadian delivery dates. Alas, for now I will have to sooth my beleaguered soul with the wondrous offerings of London Fashion Week. Stay tuned for many a fine British find. For now, a song...
