Hemlines, heels and haute couture – your daily dose

The desktop dump: Givenchy, Anna dello Russo, Elin Kling

So every now and then I go through my desktop and delete a ream of photographs I’ve been meaning to blog about but have somehow become old / irrelevant. But no more! From now on I’m just gonna dump ‘em here, and you can comment / witter on as you see fit, as I do the same!

Amazing couture designs from Givenchy. Love the futuristic armour on the back – reminds me of Avatar, somehow, or of old episodes of Star Trek.

Anna dello Russo looking, well, a bit like Anna dello Russo. Interesting behind-the-wardrobe profile in this month’s Vogue, the one with Victoria Beckham on the front. I love her now. Does anyone else love her? (Victoria, not Anna, who I feel . . . ambivalent towards.)

The blogosphere’s going a bit nuts over these, designs by Swedish blogger Elin Kling for H&M. I can see why – if you’re  a fashion blogger, your number one dream might just be to give up your life of crime (you know, your day job) to make a living from wittering on about couture and occasionally designing things that you’d like to wear. They seem, so far, to only be available in Sweden (fair ’nuff). I love the maxi dress – the rest might be a little too Maison Martin Margiela rip-off for my liking.

So how d’you like them apples? Do you have loads of random stuff languishing on your desktop? Share with the class.
