Lets Get Leathered!! Loewe Leather Icons F/W 2010

British designer Stuart Vevers takes the Spanish Goddess of luxury leather back to basics with his new über chic, consummately cool and – dare I say – totally trans-seasonal Icons range. Featuring a wardrobe staple bonanza with pieces to take you from fierce and formal to sexy casual, all crafted from Loewe’s world-famous ‘nappa’ leather (light and supple like a textile but with that vampish edge only leather can bring to the stylistic table) and all in classic fashion-never-fail black…

From the Jimmy Dean retro-rocker jacket to the grunge-tastic Courtney Love pencil skirt, this collection is so goddamn cool it’s making the inevitable tears of envy, covetousness and all-round sinful lust-related emotion freeze directly onto my eyeballs.

Look du Jour: Short Chic

Black bandeau, cheeky high-waisted turn-ups foxed up with devil-may care flounce of a scarf = super simplicity and effortless, understated über cool.

This is how to wear your 2010 shorts: casual, rough-around-the-edges and festival ready…

I couldn’t possibly let this one go without mentioning the hair: Courtney Love 90’s grunge-shag meets red-hot über siren Florence Welch’s boho show-stopper of a barnet. Need I say LOVE?!  Citified summer chic doesn’t get much easier (or more sexy) than this!

The Power & The Glory: Bench 2010 Lookbook

A quick one for the street-style massive…

Bench’s new summer 2010 collection features a tribal take on urban cool for the guys: Native American prints and bold tribal motifs offset against classic-Bench jeans and skater shorts. And for the girls? A retro-rehash of punk and grunge with a pop-tastic colour palette…

Un-freakin’-deniably cool.

Thanks to RWD for the break – head to their site to view the rest of the collection…or head over to Bench for more info (and to shop of course!)

Look du Jour: Grunge Glamour

Any look successfully incorporating this volume of sequins is a sartorial triumph in my book…

Late 80’s grunge punk glam in a vampish vintage shoulder-padded wonder of a frock. Especially loving the leg-o-mutton sleeves (very Ralph Lauren a/w 2010) not to mention the electro-pop hot-pink lipstick (natch!)

Photography/styling by up-and-coming designer Mary Catherine Moody check out her blog … or head straight over to the super-slick website to view her collections (and fab fashion photography!)

For an extended interview with MCM head over to Glitteratzi.

Look du Jour: Rebel Rebel

Provoked by my unmitigated disappointment over the stonker of an election fail here in the UK I’m feeling just a tad anarchistic. Cue grunge-punk electro fusion from cravingballerinas…mirrored lightning bolt knuckle duster, bruised heart print tights…lets go kick some doughy political butt.

McQ by Alexander McQueen: Fall 2010

Goth-grunge meets gypsy-punk in plaid, patchwork, deconstructed denim and undone layers. Touch-me texture clashes cut through the hotchpotch of patterns, florals jostle with Beetlejuice stripes, whilst dirty work boots add a masculine edge to feminine fabrics, and nod to the androgychic of the 90’s. A style tour de force by one of the greatest designers of our age.

McQueen, you will be missed.

To see more of the collection you’d better hot-foot it over to nitrolicious
