Post recession, marketers have learnt the importance of brand loyalty. The Spring Summer 2010 Missoni campaign was shot by Juergen Teller featuring a series of family portraits at the Missoni home. Their recognition of the need to connect with their followers signifies a shift in traditional advertising methods and a return to simple straightforward messages that influence an emotional resonance with consumers.

I have a thing for trousers. Peg top, harem, high waist, tailored, belted and pocketed, I like to believe they bring a certain effortless chic to an outfit. So it was with particular delight and notions of a certain Dries look that I recently uncovered these ones in a thrift shop.
Unfortunately my boyfriend doesn't appear to share the same trouser sentiment. Whilst I look in the mirror and conjure visions of long legged Chloe girls galloping down the runway in soft silk caramel, he takes a different view and judging by a recent observation I'm guessing his is more grandma with her slacks on than wholesome highlights from Hannah Macgibbon.
I'm afraid tailored trousers might belong within the same realm as many of Carrie Bradshaw's outfits do; venerated and emulated by women worldwide yet remain completely stupefying to your average male. On that note, I'm off to hunt for my latest vision, a nice pair of khaki high waisted ones, bet the boyf will love them.

I've been busy. Working, rummaging in thrift shops and of course planning New York. Most importantly I've been looking for somewhere to call home. Any suggestions for good areas? These photos from our last trip give me goosebumps of anticipation; I can't wait to see those dusty streets and ginkgo trees again.
