Bike shorts are back for summer 2010. Worn right they can look edgy again, however worn wrong, and it can look awful and contrived. I think a simple black lace pair under denim shorts would be the best option.

It was so hard to narrow down which pictures to show of the band of outsiders range for Autumn/Winter 2010. Because its all do freakin mazers! why? because in my opinion they are doing something different from everyone, and still creating a range that is wearable and exciting.Love the little fluffy gloves, raised bowling shoes, flying jacket, little prints (made from distorted polaroids of silk ties ) and quirky styling -the platform shoes are made from watch straps.

Here is Phoebe Philos second collection for the French fashion house Celine.
I love the French understated Glamour, and leather skirts, blouses detailing and trims, paired with beautifully cut over coats, and blouses and high waisted trousers.
This whole show oozes style, sophistication without being dated or boring, using subtle silhouette details, and luxurious fabrics, creating a sexy feel to a somewhat serious colour pallette. I cant see many women not wanting to wear the majority of this beautiful range, my favourite pieces include the chic hooded navy parka, leather pencil skirt and black dress with the full shaping and leather patch pockets

Iraqi-American writer and activist Zainab Salbi founded the organization in 1993 to 'help women survivors of war rebuild their lives'
My favourite is the Jimmy Choo's lightening bolt and Bella Freuds 'Femme' Design.

Did I mention I love Balmain? heres the new Autumn/Winter 2010 Images from the talented head designer Christophe Decarnin. Everyone is raving about bright furry coats at the moment, as seen on many street shots and in various shows.
I like the element of deep purple and Gold in this show, which gives a beautiful Baroque luxurious feel. The French fashion House have really gone for it with lame dresses and fringing, power shoulders and statement fur, teamed with ribbon laced boots, and much classier feel this season, even though some of the dresses are quite revealing. I much prefer the dresses and Naval outerwear in this show, im no so keen on the 70's inspired suits however....
