Maria Francesca Pepe – Lookbook A/W 13-14

Reminding us of a pictorial style typical to the tattoo genre, which can … Continue reading

Catwalk Jewellery Highlights – Paris Menswear Week S/S 2014 JUN 26th-30th

It’s recently all about size that matters so to speak, at least pondering on what we’ve seen coming from London and Milan – where some bulky and XL eye-catching proposals where shown.
