Creative Coffee Culture

This is the Zeitgeist brand new mug being used by the very creative and cultured musician Benge for his morning coffee. The mugs will be available soon down at the Crouch End pop-up for others to be equally cultured.

Summer Has Flown Away......

It seems summer is over and this is the last photo I took while the warmth was still in the air. Hello to Lucy as she smiled for me wearing her vintage dress looking like she was still in Crete instead of London NW6. Now it is time to wrap up and watch my blog for wonderful ways to do this the vintage way this winter. Think of cashmere, fur, leather and sparkle. Then we can welcome winter with warm arms!

Burberry Beauties

This weekends pop-up vintage market will feature amongst other delights my collection of vintage Burberry Macs for the ladies and gents of London. The Burberry trench is a design classic and picked up its name because it was standard issue for the service-men heading for the trenches during the First World War. This stylish item was invented by Basingstoke draper's assistant Thomas Burberry, who created a waterproof fabric called gabardine for local farm workers. The trench then followed and endless varieties have been made - including the single-breasted version worn by Michael Caine in Alfie. My favourite and the one I am still seeking in my size is the double-breasted version designed for the British Forces. In the 1920's the distinctive "novacheck" lining was added and needless to say has been much copied. However the Burberry trench is the best! Classic, understated and chic.......

All items will feature at this weekends vintage pop-up.

It's Good To Share

At last weeks pop-up shop we had fun with this 1980's knitted jumper! Here are the photos of staff, customers and Daisy the dog wearing it in there own way! Let me know who you think looks the best and wears it well?!
And so in alphabetical order:

Vintage Vogue

I worked in New York for a design studio in the summer of 1990 and I have kept this Vogue Italia as a memory of my time there. Not being fluent in Italian I could never read the magazine but instead I always loved the photographs. Shown above is Cindy Crawford who at the time was in a relationship with Richard Gere. Also featured are Madonna, David Bowie, Naomi Campbell and some brilliant fashion. Watch my blog for more featured pages!
