In Flight Entertainment...

On my last trip to London I was seated in BA club Europe and Mrs. Abdul.R... was seated by the window.
She had fallen asleep on take off and remained out for the count when the drinks trolley came clanking my way. The stewardess opted out of waking her and I proceeded to order a Merlot and a glass of water. I was given my packet of nuts which I proceeded to tear open only to find my row companion coming out of her stupor.
We called the stewardess and Mrs. Abdul.R...ordered:

"I want some red wine...not too heavy" she asked quietly.
" Sorry Madame?"
" She wants red wine that is not too heavy"...I piped in  just wanting to get started on my wine in peace and quiet and not be talked over.

"If you don't like it I can give you the same as Madams..."meaning me.

Wine exchanged hands and the stewardess sashayed away.

By that time I was intrigued by this well mannered Nigerian woman ....she sipped, she made a "hum" sort of face and then looked towards my wine.

I tested the waters to see what her reaction would be if I said:

"How is it? Would you like to taste mine?" ....
"Yes!".... She said and passed over her plastic wine goblet without a care in the world as though it was a given.

I guess what is: "Wine is also hers"....

Hilarious I love it.

CHANEL-ICIOUSLY KEIRA!

 Now we are playing in the BIG LEAGUES....

There is no other for the ultimate: head to toe glamour than : Chanel.

I dare you to name another.....

Here is Kiera looking phenomenal....




I am in "sautoir" heaven when I look at this...that necklace is the business!

CULOTTES:MAN REPELLENT OR MUST HAVE?

Well, in fairness they are a bit of both....no man really likes them but we simply must have them. And who are we seriously dressing for at the end of the day? If we left it up to the men folk...we would be bound in Herve Leger and prancing around on stilletos like a Show horse.

Long story short:They are  this season's "must have" item and I love em!

So here I have found 2 very different looks:




So here we have the "on trend" look/street vibe:
Polyester mix dress and culottes :by Noir Kei Ninomiya at Dover Street Market.



And this is chic personified:

Polyester mix jacket and culottes by Kenzo
Leather shoes by Michael Kors


So where does that leave you?
Are you going to embrace the Culottes Culture?
Come on! Jump on the Bandwagon.

CHANEL SURFING


I completely like this look.....But:
What does it say behind her shirt?

TWEED WE NEED....?!

Huh!...

 Erm...isn't her top in suede?....

I'm being petty...
It's Chanel,we love it! ...We want it...! The over the shoulder  tweed bag is a "Meh"... but if that turns up in a gift bag outside my front door I would welcome it with open arms....and learn to love it.

So here are the painful details:
Suede shirt:£5,385
Suede trousers:£3,995
Shoes: £680
Tweed bag: £3,320

LA PERLA...FOR MEN

This one's dedicated to my friend Ziad...who wants a little more manly posts on Frockanrolla...

I don't know how manly this is ..but it sure got my attention:



Where to begin ?

How this handsome chap can keep a straight face! for starters....
So what are we looking at here? Bedroom attire my friends...inspired by...boxing attire? running and boxing attire?
Lord only knows...but one thing is for sure...a handsome guy comes into my boudoir dressed like this...
I jump out of the window.

Now Ziad....I promise more men fashion and hopefully something that might appeal to you...but we do love our tongue in cheek moments too.

PS: Beards are in Big time...the groomed,trimmed variety and not the straggly ZZ Top ..

                                         xoxo Frockanrolla

Alexander McQueen...at the V&A


SAVAGE BEAUTY is at the V&A as of the 14th March...in case you didn't already know. And if you want to plan to see it when next in London...you have until the: 2 August 2015.

I strongly advise you to book in advance and I want you to take it all in...yes! It is a monumental task but well worth it even if you come out feeling off kilter...as I did when I saw this incredible and sometimes disturbing exhibition at the Met in New York.
See post:
http://frockanrolla.blogspot.fr/2011/06/savage-beauty-alexander-mcqueen-at-met.html

This exhibition will take you from his postgraduate Central Saint Martins collection in 1992 to his A/W 2010 collection which remained unfinished at the time of his death.
