I often see pictures of this very fierce group of people parading around Paris during fashion week and always wondered who they were. According to Jak & Jil, they are the team behind the online magazine MYKROMAG. Interesting content and great design. Well worth a look.

Below is the ridiculously stylish ad directed by Autumn de Wilde and also starring the very handsome Matt Costa.
The collection is available online here. Id like to say they make a nice change from Ray Ban wayfarers but it just so happens that they look the exact same, hmm. Very nice selection of colours though it has to be said. But, for 250 quid im not entirely sure they're worth it.

The new Chanel No 5 film, directed by Jean-Pierre Jeunet and starring the lovely Audrey Taotou, can be watched here. It is not as amazing as i expected but i think the very attractive love interest makes up for it a little bit.
Cannot wait for Coco Avant Chanel to be released here. I havn't been this excited about a film in ages.

Rodebjer. Although Carin Rodebjer is Swedish she began designing in her apartment in New York and started being stocked in shops throughout the city after being spotted on the street wearing one of her pieces. This season's collection is very Parisian chic, which as you all i know, i absolutely love anything even mildly Parisian. Keeping on the Parisian theme, the lookbook was shot by the wonderful Yvan Rodic of Facehunter. Love love love.
Rodebjer Spring/Summer 2009 available at Indigo & Cloth, Basement 27, South William Street, Dublin 2.

If you wanna be cool like this guy and wear the coloured glasses rather than the tortoise shell head over to lazyoaf.co.uk. they've got a good selection of colours
Maria Lau a graduate from London's Royal College of Art, uses semi-precious stones braided in nude stockings. That's definitely something I can do (except for the semi precious stones bit, I'll probably just use fake plastic ones) and a genius way to use up all of my ripped tights that I can't wear anymore.
Obviously not everyone enjoys arts and crafts so you can buy the necklaces here if you like
I also very much like Sabrina Dehoff's unification pieces. Also of the Royal College of Art, after stints at Guy Laroche and Lanvin shes now teaching us how to come together through jewelry. Thats nice of her.
Again you can buy most of her collection here if you'd prefer.
I got this hatbox in a shop in Stockholm for only €35. It's amazing and even has a little mirror in the inside.
