Mango has produced its A/W 2012 lookbook, starring Anna Selezneva and looking really quite brilliant – I’d have pegged this for an editorial in Glamour or Elle if I hadn’t seen it headlined as a Mango lookbook. My only problem with it – and yes, I’m being picky – is that I feel like the items are a little too current. Will I still want beige flared jeans in autumn? Who knows; my heart is as fickle as the fashion calendar.

I find myself, of late, with several questions playing on my mind. (I was going to say “conundrums” because I really like the word “conundrum” but then I thought: is it “conundrums” or “conundra?” Answers on a postcard.) Reproducing fashion shoots has become almost moot; with Pinterest, I can merely pin the photographs I like and direct other people to explore them more fully via the link created by the pin (I know, head spinning …). So I find myself pinning far more often than I save images – whereas, in the past, I used to frequently save images and reproduce entire shoots.

But what do you, my loyal readers, want? Do you want shoots? Do you want news? Do you want lookbooks, such as this one? (Although it will surely have been forgotten by the time autumn/winter rolls around and I will have to do a Mango refresher course.) Are you on Pinterest? Or Twitter? Or Facebook? Would you rather have one place for everything (I’m hoping that, if you say yes, you mean this blog)?
