In which we moved into Zimbabwe's interior, slept in tents in the bush, felt the insignificance of man under an overwhelming overarching sky, drank gin&tonics in the company of 65 elephants, caught and ate termites (some of us) and captured as many of the million colours of this country as I could with my trusty Lumix.

The Capriciousness of Summer Air





Photobucket


She is as in a field a silken tent
At midday when the sunny summer breeze
Has dried the dew and all its ropes relent,
So that in guys it gently sways at ease,
And its supporting central cedar pole,
That is its pinnacle to heavenward
And signifies the sureness of the soul,
Seems to owe naught to any single cord,
But strictly held by none, is loosely bound
By countless silken ties of love and thought
To every thing on earth the compass round,
And only by one's going slightly taut
In the capriciousness of summer air
Is of the slightlest bondage made aware.

-Robert Frost


I have felt like a silken tent.

I fought an uphill struggle this weekend, trying to tear my friends away from their books and out into the glorious sunshine. Luckily, a few share my belief that sunlight is better for the soul than studying.

BRAZILIA FANTASTICA

This Brazilian bombshell has some seriously jazzy style. Lots of zebra print, stripes and multi-coloured blazers topped off with kooky shades. I can imagine she's a real character.

KATE MOSS FOR TOPSHOP



I always get really excited about Kate Moss's Topshop collections from the ads, only to be disappointed in store by the low-quality materials and bad fits. To be honest, I think the only Kate Moss items I have are ones I picked up in the sale for about £5 each. In contrast, I was very impressed by both Christopher Kane collaborations, and have quite a few pieces that I justified spending £75 on. Likewise, one of my favourite dresses of all time is an Alice McCall for Topshop number which has lasted several years. 'The High Street' cashmongers have tried to make high design available to the masses through these collaborations, but they need to remember that it is not just the brand name that fascinates the consumer, but the intense quality too.

I'm trying not to get my hopes up too much about this Spring/Summer collection which is rich in floaty, sheer, ethereal pieces . I think the video ad below is testament to how great the clothes really are; you can barely see them for the over-exposure and with Kate frolicking around close to the camera like she's in some narcotic trance.

Shame...
