Lanvin for H&M


This is the first photo of the Lanvin collection for H&M. Personally I'm fascinated by the inclusion of the woman second on the left. Very cool.

Martha Doesn't Live Here Anymore


It's now more than two months since Martha left us forever. Her belongings have been divided and scattered, leaving an empty flat that used to be her world. All that remains is the door bell with her name - the bottom one - and the desire to press it and discover that it's just been a bad dream. That she's still up there on the top floor, alive, well and as magical as ever.

The Gentle Art of Getting Lost


Steeped in history, this merchant's house in Cairo is a maze of staircases, passageways and half-forgotten lives. But if the myriad ghosts are a bit too much for you, fear not: the turquoise dots above each archway will protect you against the Evil Eye.

The End of the Affair?


The flowers have been consigned to the trash, and the rest - as they say - is history.

Veruschka at 71


1960s model Veruschka as snapped at a recent event.

So what do we think of her style?

Wild and edgy?

Or age-inappropriate and just plain weird?

Let me know.
