The Blair Doctrine: buried in Libyan sand?, Eagle Eye

The Blair Doctrine: buried in Libyan sand?

Number 514 in the series of Questions to Which the Answer is No is asked by Krishnan Guru-Murthy, a particularly thoughtless version of the standard anti-Blair sneer that has been around since things started kicking off in Egypt.
It runs along the lines of haha Blair propped up Gaddafi and went on holiday in Egypt and [...]

Round Objects, Eagle Eye

Round Objects

Which Cabinet minister has a specially-made ink stamp with which to print “BOLLOCKS” on papers in his or her red box to which he or she takes exception?

My name’s Ilona, and I’m an Anorexic

I’m not Catherine, I’m Ilona.
Catherine is my middle name. I decided to use it as a pseudonym for this blog when I was about to begin writing about my time in an Eating Disorder Unit. I didn’t really think it through but it was suggested by the then Editor as a means of keeping [...]

LFW – Louise Gray

The audience was transported into Louise Gray’s eccentric world of design (complete with dry ice) today when she presented her latest collection at the On/Off Show-space.
Patchwork bloomers, head harnesses strapped with inflatable rings and balls, heeled polka dot and metallic wellies and multi-coloured miss-matched prints made for a suitably surreal collection.

LFW – House of Holland, Notebook

LFW – House of Holland

The invites were printed on bingo cards, the after-show party invites are bingo pens, so it’s no guessing what the House of Holland’s collection was to be based on, and it was done in the designer’s usual tongue-in-cheek humour.
Country living was the theme here – candy coloured tweeds suits, bingo ball printed trousers, lace-trimmed chiffon [...]
