Lulu Guinness Autumn Winter 2010 Press Day

I was invited today to attend the Press Day for the Lulu Guinness Autumn
Winter 2010 Collection in London. The launch took place in the Savile
Club in London and as I climbed the grand staircase and entered the
grand ballroom I knew I would not be leaving with anything less than a
new found respect for Lulu!
Lulu Guinness Invite.JPGThis season features the “Kiss and Makeup Collection” which was inspired
by the iconic 1960’s model Peggy Moffit. Most people remember Peggy for
her outrageous makeup and clothing. And who could ever forget her
absolutely gorgeous enormous brown eyes which she would accentuate with
excessive amounts of eyeliner and mascara?
Lulu Guinness Inspiration.JPGIt’s a wonder that it has taken this
long for a collection to be inspired directly by such a fabulous
historical figure in fashion! If there was anyone that could honour this
iconic woman in the way in which she deserves it would be Lulu
Guinness. The bags, purses and pouches which were presented today are
all instantly recognizable as Lulu Guinness items but they have new
details which make them stand out from anything she has done before.
Lulu has translated the Peggy Moffit look into “bags
embroidered with make-up grids and dressing tables, a bag that features a
‘Make-up Shop,’ with eye-shadow and lipstick palette embroidery setting
the tone for the season.”As always, her pieces are of superior quality
and show extreme attention to detail. We can’t help but feel we are
holding something so special whenever we step out with a Lulu on our

Here’s a look at some of our
favourite pieces from the launch today:

Valentine’s Day: Last-minute gift ideas

vday hello.jpg
Valentine’s Day is a holiday that can drive fear into the hearts of men around the world. What do you buy the woman you love to show her how much you care? What is too little? What is too much? Is this the year you buy a ring? Is this the year you sweep her off to Barbados?

All of those, of course, require extensive planning. So if you aren’t the type to have been preparing for the big V-day (no, men I don’t mean V for Vendetta) then I have a few suggestions for you. Above are fool-proof gifts that any woman would absolutely love to receive on the day we all know was created by greeting card companies to make more money.

But who cares why the day is celebrated? The bottom line is to tell the one you’re with that you love them with all your heart. Embrace it – though don’t forget to whip out your credit card at the same time!

All ten gifts are easily available, so rush out and pick one up before it’s too late and the shops are closed. And for the ultimate, buy the lot, get a hotel room for the night and create a giant gift bed for her to fall into!
