I recorded this Mango scheme / window recently in the middle of October here in Central London, although didn't really think of anything particularly interesting to write about it other than the fact that Copper seemed to be developing as a trend here on the high street. Interestingly Zara Home, almost directly opposite has also picked up on this theme. Zara's production time is apparently lightning fast and although Interior's trends seem to move at a snail's pace, this transition from high street fashion to high street interiors is remarkably quick. OK, well, we are now possibly heading towards the 'laggards' end of the various concepts of consumerism before Primark jumps on the bandwagon and we hear the death knell tolling and screaming in our ears, although I felt it was worth noting that this is happening within home furnishings at a remarkably fast pace - possibly a trend in itself?

|This is not Amy Winehouse|
Its all go down at Fred Perry right now. With the launch of the new collection endorsed by Amy Winehouse AW10 (I always feel that its rather dubious to say 'designed by' as I always wonder how much actual involvement celebrities have in these collections - possibly none) being launched after a gig to 20 competition winners last week in East London. I'm really warming to the Fred Perry brand as they have been doing some interesting stuff and Amy Winehouse probably suits this brand rather well. Anyway, maybe swing by and have a closer look at the collection and see what you think. In the meantime, this is not AW in my photographs.
|Or in this one either.|
