William the Brilliant




Finally a solution for all those tiny golden skeletons rattling around your house, a coffin ring!
The coffin ring has a lock and a key you wear around your neck so there will be no escapees. Awe inspiring, this new work of Mr. William Llewellyn Griffiths of Metal Couture in Melbourne. Fortunately for me the great man is gracing my house with his presence in a long awaited visit in 2 weeks time. Halleluliah I say. Alice xxx

Boganic

I drew this Bogan in its traditional attire for the poor impoverished English girls who've never seen a Bogan in its natural habitat before. Long live.

Fashion

At the moment we have all these amazing girls interning with us at C.K. Maiden Lucy and Alla dressed particularly gorgeous. They always make an effort and it's well appreciated I must say.
Style expression so good for the soul. Alice xxx

Post It

It's four and a half weeks until London Fashion Week and this is a bit how we feel. Paulie drew this a few weeks ago on a hangover morning in the studio but I think it still applies. I love its teeth. xxx Arghlice

Carlo Mollino's Polaroids

Many years ago, when I was just a teenager I bought a Taschen book on Carlo Mollino which was a collection of nudey Polaroids of women. Mr. Mollino was an Italian architect and furniture designer to much acclaim. After he died in 1973, over 2,000 of these Polaroids were found, so another talent was unearthed. The ladies are so beautifully styled their bouffant hair, heavy eyeliner and 60s props. Read more about him here.

An Ode to Paulito





Some people are born with untouchable style and they can't get it wrong. Paulie is one of these chosen few and he always tops off an ensemble with the ultimate accessory, a big grin.

First attempt



On the phone to William telling him about my new hair style and wishing him a good day.

Marawa Mange Le Monde


Marawa's motto, live to eat now has an addition, eat to blog. During the day while other folks work, Marawa is exploring the world of culinary delights. It's well worth book marking her brand new blog, Marawa Mange Le Monde. Then you can follow hot on her trail of gourmet crumbs. Mmmm, Alice xxx
