I’ve been looking up some new shoes. I dont regularly wear them (as you can tell I’m a bit of a ‘Sneaker Freak’) but I found this new range of footwear by US brand Generic Man that I thought I must share! Apparently this collection is much larger than 2009′s. They’re all hand-made using some of the finest Italian materials with classic silhouettes. I personally like the featured classics with perferated leather and the blue suede high-tops just below!

I’m very excited about the new Garden Collection from H&M, which is made with environmentally adapted materials like recycled polyester, organic cotton and organic linen.

The garments are very romantic, exotic and glamorous looking; with floral patterns which will provide an injection of colour into your wardrobe (especially mine as I’m one of the ‘black is the new black’ girls)…. [..]

The Fanny Pack is Back!
Jan 2010 03

Your eyes are not deceiving you, the 90′s bum bag, or fanny pack as they say in America, is back for Spring/Summer 2010. It has been lurking in the fashion corners for a little while and has finally stepped out of the shadow into the basking sunlight. Feeling slightly anxious? Don’t be! Think about all the fantastic summer evenings you can dance away without having that pesky hand bag hanging on your shoulder or holding on to a clutch bag that is so easy to loose once you have had a drink too many – with the bum bag you can go hands free AND look stylish at the same time.

Louis Vuitton has brought the bum bag back in a big way, quite literally, for SS10. In embossed leather with tassels and extra pouches, I dare say this deluxe version is for the extra brave.

Marc Jacobs (who also designed the one for LV) has made bum bags to match his skirts and shorts, so a little more low key.

Ashish has a black studded version which I absolutely love and a yellow juicy colored studded bum bag. Spot on for the 90′s trend.

For a high-street budget you can get some nice looking, slightly smaller, maybe more practical sized, versions from American Apparel in Nylon and Lamé Denim in fab colors. I am sure other high-street brands will follow on soon so keep your eyes peeled.

Still not sure if this is for you? Make up your mind quickly as the fashion rat pack have already got their filthy paws all over these babies!

My wallet is still feeling quite stressed from all the Christmas shopping and here I am, already now, hours away from 2010, browsing for what is in store for us fashion addicts in the new year. I think my wallet will feel better after reading this though.

The new Topshop Spring 2010 collaborations featuring Ashish, Ann-Sofie Back and Jonathan Saunders (almost) made me spit out my champagne in excitement!
