A true sale bargain - two for the price of one!

Filling up the lazy days betwixt Christmas and the new year (whilst the showroom boiler has been malfunctioning) has been something of an ordeal I can tell you Dear Reader. A few short personal window appearances aside (well I wouldn't usually do sale, but the lack of radiator action drove me out), I also took the opportunity to visit a number of fabulous exhibitions and see some truly spectacular shows.

Sales are actually quite vulgar in Miss Mannequin's opinion, But take a tip from me (And I like to think I'm in the know), for a genuine 24-carat SALE bargain. The Design Museum just south of Tower Bridge is currently showing two great exhibitions, FOR WHICH THEY WILL CHARGE YOU ONLY ONCE!

"John Pawson - Plain Space" (open until 30th January) is a super insight into the projects of this brilliant architect who defined a style and set the pace for so many interior designers and stylists who followed. His influence even tipped over into the fashion arena where minimalistic clothing following his strictly outlined aesthetic.
Alongside houses and retail spaces, his redoubtable skills saw the conception and build of an astounding monastery in the Czech Republic and outdoor structures, most notably the Sackler crossing in Kew Gardens. Simplicity, clarity and a decisive vision can be clearly detected in the many designs and models on show. Miss Mannequin peeked over the dinky back fence of his Georgian London house and was delighted by the opportunity to take an eye-squinting Gulliver style tour of his home without getting caught in the act!

Miss Mannequin  stood on tippy toe and peered over the back fench to bring you this exclusive snap of the inside of John Pawson's house.
(Note: no smelly old rubbish sacks languishing in his back garden!)

Downstairs meanwhile,the "Drawing Fashion" exhibition (which ends 6th march) further thrilled Miss M, with a divine history of the illustrative art of fashion plates from the early 20th century masters through the golden age and forward into the current millenium. Erte, George Lepape and Rene Grau originals were on show, alongside those of many, many other notably talented illustrators.
Videos further enhanced the experience; Fran├žois Berthoud's awesome lino prints for McQueen and Antonia Lopez speaking from his studio particularly caught my attention. Looking forward; Miss M adored new work by Aurore de La Morinerie.

Go see and grab this true bargain BOGOF (that's buy one get one free to you)!

Let me know which other exhibitions caught your eye this year.
So until next year, toodle-pip and happy hogmanaying

Dressed to thrill....F&M, a Christmas tradition

This week, after completing her epic Christmas card mail out (lucky you, if you received one), Miss Mannequin got in touch with her festive spirit whilst doing a spot of shopping in London's West-end (well Piccadilly actually). 

My charming chauffeur Mark dropped me off at the corner of Fortnum and Mason's (in order that I could pop in for a pudding)! The front windows were of course stunning as always, this year depicting various works of art cleverly brought to life by the store's talented window trimmers. Gorgeous. What also struck me were the breathtaking side windows. I was captivated and entranced by the intricate enchanted forest theme, featuring layer upon layer of clever backdrops, propping and styling which led you on a journey through magical scenes. Look closely and you will find; a mouth watering feast set on a grand table full of epicurean treats, a cosy fireplace and library in the midst of an intricate collection of treasures (concentrate hard and you may even notice a short sighted owl wearing spectacles) and if you are following your map correctly dear reader, you will come across a secret boudoir filled with chic delights that Miss Mannequin would be delighted to find in her Christmas stocking! I telephoned Visual Director Paul Symes to find out more. Apparently, this side run of windows had been designed by his right hand lady, Sallie Greenhill. Working with a very slim budget, she spent four months of sketching, sourcing and prop-building to assemble this visual treat, whilst he concentrated on the art-themed front run. Creatively thought through and with a charming ambience, I feel sure you will agree than Sallie (and of course Paul) has done a fantastic job. Do pop by ... and let me know about other Xmas windows you have found inspiring.

Timberland Work Boots&Nicky Hilton

If ED Hardy skeleton printed lace up boots should invite Agyness Deyn as spokeswoman, then Timberland Work Boots need to treat Nicky Hilton their No.1 option fake louis vuitton handbags. The handsome girl who loves fedora, black blazer, skinny pants and calfskin boots with all her heart, knows how to express American cowboy style. When she travels to Europe with her sis Paris Hilton, she wears a standard pilot girl attire in funky contrast with Paris' girlish blouse and leggings. What's more, during her journey in Australia Fashion Week, her simple off-shoulder printed shirt and sleek black cowhide flat boots are stronger than any feminine getups. Ain't these in accord with Timberland wonderland explorer spirit? So it's wisest to appoint Nicky Hilton the global propaganda girl for Timber work boots, the representative in Timberland family.

As 2010 fall/winter is drawing near, Nicky Hilton tells you the inevitable trend. That is, to prepare a pair of strong splendid Timberland work boots to shape a brand-new gorgeous you. Christian Louboutin ankle boots are amazing indeed, yet they are more for sweet girls like Alexa Chung. We are not fashionstas and hence we needn't don some filmy black stockings and monochrome Christian Louboutin tuxedo-inspired ankle boots and looking fragile in freezing days.

The Timberland work boots, by contrast, not only keep you in style but protect you from the aggression of merciless winds. This is the real combo of function and fashion louis vuitton handbags with silk scarf. So just get ready for a coveted pair!

You say not, I said not, `All is not, so we imagine, including design director of Lanvin's Alber Albaz, Dior Homme former chief designer Hedi Sliman, or is it just joined the Theory of Olivier Theyskens, these bit design master is not the most suitable candidate, Father had to make a decision after all this, but he has remained silent outside, make things more complicated and confusing.

In an interview with Father a few days ago a magazine interview, and finally face the problem of succession, he said: "Since I signed with the Chanel contract for life, so to some extent, who will be my successor, I would like to depend on to whom should this position. And this moment, I hope this one is Haider Ackermann! "

Recall the recent Chanel show, Haider Ackermann really have to see the figure, it appears that Father still remain some hint to us, but unfortunately no one would want to whither. For the name, I believe most people are not very familiar.
