I recently had the great pleasure of collaborating with Louis Vuitton.

Louis Vuitton’s Noe bag was originally designed in the 1930′s to carry 5 bottles of champagne.  Can you imagine going out into the countryside with nothing more than a picnic blanket and 5 bottles of champagne in your bag?

I imagined a picnic in a vast, open landscape on a long hot Summer’s day, where the sweet afternoon rain cools down the earth and kisses your cheeks.

… I thought of my youth in Australia and walking for miles and miles without seeing another soul to the point where the landscape becomes a companion; wandering its magical expanses and seeking the perfect spot to rest…

… I recalled the haunting beauty of my favourite Australian artist Norman Lindsay’s Sirens and the evocative film, Picnic at Hanging Rock, which tells a story of schoolgirls entranced by the landscape.

Some 80 years on from its creation, the Noe bag continues to inspire the imagination to wander…

How do you wear a classic camel coat and make it look SUPER sexy, whilst still being demure?

Accent with a contrast of red in all the appropriate places by taking my very chic grandmothers advice of matching your lipstick, bag and shoes.

With the recent MET Gala, PUNK: Chaos to Couture, it got me thinking about the ethos of punk.

In this commercialized world of fashion where what’s ‘in’ and what’s ‘out’ is dictated to us by so many forces, it is easy to get caught up in an obsession of wearing the latest trends.  There is fear that with so many proverbial eyes on us, one may feel like they are trying too hard if they stand out.  When I think about what punk is in a modern sense relating to fashion, I instantly go to women who push the boundaries and consistently dress for themselves as an expression of their creativity, regardless of the social pressures to conform; women who march to the beat of their own drum!

Tess Yopp, Hanne Gaby Odiele, Ulyana Sergeenko and Michelle Violy Harper aren’t necessarily punk in our traditional understanding with piercings and Mohawks, athough they use clothing as a way of making a statement which is very much the ethos of  punk.
