The sun is picking up its pace in the UK, making it even trickier to hybernate in my fashionable wilderness of earthy and organic textures and layers. But I realised that I didn't need to succumb to shapeless shorts and predictable vests to splinter away the impact of the heat. Rolling up baggy trousers into masculine 'hot pants' or postman shorts is such a kooky stamp. And clashes is the way to banish boredom, taking advantage of the way the sun illuminates crayon colours. White socks erected out of bold brogues creates a pixie boy vibe, while light black gypsy t-shirts ruffled and crinkled around purple shirts plays with the senses. And there's nothing stopping cardigans being used this Summer, because All Saints offer pirate cardigans that waterfall down and look so light they melt to the eye, and have the ability to 'fizzle invisible' in the heat. 'Folk Grunge' is the persona I've adopted, and I'd be interested to know if any of you have found a unique niche to integrate and connect the seasons and styles. I've also included a few images from the inspired photographer Stephane Sednaoui. He toys with Tim Walker fantasies, smokes up the screen with romantic Barbara Vidal style shots, and generally enchants me every time I come across his editorials. Hope you all like it.
