Patrick Wolf’s life in fashion

I’m a big fan of Patrick Wolf, his unique style and interesting take on pop music make him stand out from the regular template of ‘4 guys and a guitar’ indie bands. In a recent interview with the Metro he explained : ‘I wanted to communicate visually as well as musically but, when I left home at 16, I didn’t …

Marc Jacobs wins Designer of the Year Award

Have you all seen what’s happened to Marc Jacobs lately? He’s gone from being the shy, nerdy almost invisible man behind the label (left, 2006) to a sort of manga version of Tom Ford (right, 2007): all tanned muscles, blue hair and budget tattoos (M&Ms anyone?). By his own admission, he’s having a mid-life crisis, but he says he’s enjoying …

Mika at the MTV Europe Music Awards

I don’t get Mika. I don’t get his music, I don’t get him in interviews, I don’t get his dated ‘showman’ posturing, his constant mugging to camera or his self-satisfied manner. That’s all, of course, fine: I don’t have to like him. But what really bothers me is that I don’t get is why he doesn’t look better. He’s got …

  Whilst Topshop have H&M trumped when it comes to celebrity ranges, H&M have had good quality ranges by Viktor & Rolf and now they have a new range by Roberto Cavalli.
