Another very delayed visit to an exhibition the other day after the Duffy gig at Brixton Academy (photos on the way!), despite being open since summer, I decided it was about time I checked out the Fashion Vs. Sport exhibition at London's V&A Museum, which celebrates the ongoing relationship between contemporary fashion and sportswear.
Although it was relatively small, it included contributions from iconic fashion designers Vivienne Westwood, Chanel and Prada as well as new designers which are influenced by street style and urban culture such as Cassette Playa, above.
It also included the obvious collaborations between Adidas and Stella McCartney as well as individually customised branded products such as I-Saw’s hand-engraved Nike trainers.
Definately worth a look, though you'll have to make a space in your diary quick - it finishes on the 4th Jan!

One of the many blogs I read is Stylesight's ingeniusly entitled 'Stylesightings' which regularly features entries from eddie - the author's - hometown of the wonderful New York - which just happens to be my favourite city in the world. My favourites of his entries frequently feature gorgeous New Yorkers with some serious style.
My fave today? A fun combination of layering involving Mickey Mouse, checks, colour and just the most gorgeous coat! Layered, green plaid - I'm guessing customised? Gorgeous!
Let me know what you think!

I have a not-so-secret love for people who dress for themselves. Who take minutes, hours or days out of their lives to pose in front of the mirror, try on six different outfits, change their accessories double that number of times, until they finally decide that they are ready.
Fashion photographer and artist Othello De'Souza-Hartley celebrates just this with his new two day exhibition at The Photographer's Gallery (16-18 Ramillies Street, W1) in London on Saturday 6th and Sunday 7th December, snapping those blessed with sartorial style and those who simply take risks, dare to look different and embrace their individuality. Check it out!

become trawling the web for one-off finds".Though they haven't discovered our little haven of vintage joy quite yet, but in
the mean time they offered some worthy competitors for you to have a peek at for
