One of my big obsessions is Soviet Russia, especially the interesting kitsch items which came out of the communist block. Thi is why I am in love with the new Fall/Winter 2009/10 collection by Denis Simachev. I love the faded 80s jeans, the Soviet winter hat, oversized lapels and the kitsch and colourful designs on the sweaters and T shirts. Be inspired !

A new artist i just can’t get enough of is Florence & The Machine. This red head singer is a hot commodity for 2009. Think Kate Bush, soul, funky beats and a few chiming bells and you have Florence. Their single Rabbit Heart (Raise me up) really hits that Bush feeling with a contemporary twist. Highly reccomend.
