Fashion label of Carri Mundane (designer of THAT tracksuit in M.I.A.’s ‘Galang’ video), Cassette Playa, didn’t show any clothes at London Fashion Week this season. Instead attendees were invited to enter her world through a Japanese-style photobooth where they could create their own gifs loaded with Cassette Playa’s signature psychedelic neon meets Aztec, computer game weirdness. So we erm had a go..
Last year, the PPQ duo Amy Molyneaux and Percy Parker put an all black/dual heritage lineup of models on the catwalk in polka dots and tribal sundresses. Catching the attention of a few gaga wannabes the young and famous (and not so famous alike), queues to be seated at this year’s Spring show seemed to go on forever in the BFC Show Space.
This year’s Spring 2011 Ready to Wear collection carried on the animal prints in dazzly, fruity shades. They accompanied the collection of blue and white candy-striped pieces, peplum dresses and strappy sundresses. The North-African meets French Riviera-inspired looks, named ‘Hassan’, were topped off with fez hats. Definitely some of PPQ’s more grown up looks.
Amongst the droves of air kisses were Michelle Williams (dressed in PPQ AW10), Amber Rose, the xx’s Oliver Sim and Brigitte Nielson. Think I spotted Ozwald Boateng at some point too.

Folks! If you never got round to downloading the free MJ mixtape made by the ledge that is Jazzy Jeff…do it today! It’s full of a capella, cuts and obscure album slices with a twist of hip hop making it the perfect tribute. Download it. Whack it on to CD. And play it wherever you are.
Me in Aug 2007 on a Space Invader hunt in Geneva (one of my geeky hobbies that I’ll tell you more about in due course). Here’s an alien, which I’m so touristly pointing at, near the Beth Yaakov Synagogue. *1 point*
The Parisian droids as well as Snoop Dogg and Ian Brown have all been superimposed into the original cantina scene from Episode IV: A New Hope, as part of the Adidas Originals’ 2010 World Cup ad campaign.
But surprisinigly, Daft Punk haven’t played around with the music, so it remains as the original tune played by an all-alien band in the shady bar scene that is showing football on the screens this time round.
The ad will hit our TV screens on 12th June, but of course you can already take a peek here on t’internet (see below). The re-edit also features David Beckham, Franz Beckenbauer, Noel Gallagher, Ciara, Jay Baruchel and DJ Neil Armstrong, not forgetting Han Solo, Obi-Wan Kenobi, C-3PO and Greedo. Snoop is effortlessly hilarious in it…
