Low Luv

If you were to sum up fashion as such for me Erin Wasson plus jewellery probably make up what I love about it all, her whole style, her look and taste stand for the sort of clothes I love, the sort of editorials and lookbooks that I go mad over and the designers whose collections I appreciate the most. As for jewellery I can appreciate this in many forms not necessarily what I would wear personally but that is what I like about jewellery the differences in choice for each individual, from bold stand out pieces to fine delicate creations, for me Low Luv is actually a bit more rocky/grungy punky even for what I would wear but I appreciate the quirkiness of the creations, I love the amount of detail included and the fact that they are not bulky and solid rather hollow and cut out with attachments that are able to move freely such as the loose hangings on the bracelets. This new lookbook emphasises the way I see the designs even more so by the styling of the shoot not just of the clothes but also Erin's hair and make up, it amazes me still that she is just able to make any look her own it never looks as though she is adapting a new look rather she makes it her own look, just 'Erin' this maybe due to having some sort of her personal style permanently on her in the form of tattoos its the only reason I can think of other than she just has a magical ability to turn literally anything into her own.

COS-Collection of Style.

'Always exploring our original concept of favouring style over fashion.' COS is one of my favourite shop's mainly because of this concept as well as the simplicity the cut and the choice of materials used. Described as clothes for men and women who want high end design and good quality at an affordable price, which is exactly what it is. Launched in 2007 COS now has over forty stores across Europe, Asia and Middle East, each one placed in a carefully considered location with a design concept that preserves building's original features whilst creating a modern gallery space for our collections. Seemingly COS appreciates timeless design that lives beyond the season, merging traditional methods with new techniques and innovative fabrics, they work hard to create fashion pieces that look and feel at once classic and modern-something which they achieve in all of their designs from coats and jackets to shoes and jewellery. Attention to detail in every garment and the wide breadth of inspirations is said top define the collections, COS likes functional design crafted from simple ideas. Only up until recently I discovered that COS is part of the H&M group, now knowing this I have noticed that occasionally some of the clothing in H&M shows very similar design as in the simplicity, use of sheer materials and the cut.

One Teaspoon and Erin....

Any lookbook with Erin involved I would love, she sort of makes everything her own, I read on Oracle Fox that the gold trousers were her favourite, exactly what I would of presumed...

Prayer Beads.

In my opinion Elle Mcphearson is one of the most beautiful women in the world, whenever I see a photo of her me and my friends will always send it to each other. One thing in particular which I love about her, is her on the beach. If I could have anyone's jewelery on their wrist and around their neck it would be hers. Lately I've noticed that she wears several prayer beads, I recently bought these in bali I liked them as they were a traditional part of the Balinese culture even though I would be wearing these as more of a fashion term I like things that have a meaning.... Prayer beads are used by members of various religious traditions such as Roman Catholicism, Christianity, Islam, Buddhism and Hinduism to count the repetitions of prayers, chants or devotions, such as the rosary of Virgin Mary in Christianity. Beads are among the earliest human ornaments, over the centuries various cultures have made beads from a variety of materials from stone and shells to clay, dating back to 10,000 BC. The English word bead derives from the Old English noun bede which means a prayer, the exact origin of prayer beads remain uncertain but the earliest use probably traces to Hindu prayers in India.
