The Steve Mason Playlist

Head scarfs mania

Add a twist to your outfit with a Wendy James stroke Minnie Mouse scarf adorned on your head!! (Ours here is secured with two crystal brooches)

Thank you to K Grand, who showed this look out with her styling on the Top Shop Unique Summer 09 show, a slice of herself in the mid 80's!

I also liked the piece in the Times Style Mag on Feb 1st, shopped by Natalie Hartley and referencing Danielle Scutts African style head wraps, these lovely shots with great looks gave us 'this seasons ultimate finishing touch.'

Jasper Goodall exhibition

We are big fans of Jasper Goodall's work. He's got an exhibition opening tomorrow at the Electric Blue Gallery. We are going to check it out, you should too!

Here's some examples of his work.

The Mini Tie

We are longing for the day the mini tie will make a proper entrance into mens wardrobes. Here's a little indicator from Acne that this might be possible.

And, obviously our own example...

Powerdressing in a bag.

This faux snakeskin briefcase bag was bought for the shop as part of a collection.
Influenced by Proenza Shoulers navy crocodile pochettes shown this summer.
