Seems Opening Ceremony can do no wrong right now. Check out William Strobeck's short film for opening ceremony featuring Chloë Sevigny. Set to the haunting track "Fly the Sky" by Colony Farm, the film captures Chloë in her pieces from the CHLOË SEVIGNY FOR OPENING CEREMONY collection. The newish Covent Garden store's pretty great too! Love!

Due to a certain sporting event all eyes are currently on London. No better place in my opinion! Yes, I am completely biased because London is my home (but not my home town) - the place that I - like millions of others - chose to make my home.  

I recently happened upon this short film by Michael Smith and Wojciech Duczmal and I think it pretty much sums up what pulls people here and keeps them in what is essentially not an easy, but a very rewarding place to reside - what it's like to live in and love this trying and magnificent city.

'Inspired by Baudelaire’s idea of the flâneur, the stroller whose epiphany is the shifting urban spectacle, the film is about one individual’s personal response to the unique spirit that charges the city he inhabits – in this case, Michael’s response to the inner East End, where he has lived for many years.
It’s a film about the deep, complex, bitter-sweet romance between an individual and his city. Like many long-term love affairs, it’s a dysfunctional one, but nevertheless, this film is a love story between a person and a place.'

i carry your heart with me (i carry it in
my heart) i am never without it (anywhere
i go you go, my dear; and whatever is done
by only me is your doing, my darling)
i fear no fate (for you are my fate, my sweet) i want
no world (for beautiful you are my world, my true)
and it’s you are whatever a moon has always meant
and whatever a sun will always sing is you
here is the deepest secret nobody knows
(here is the root of the root and the bud of the bud
and the sky of the sky of a tree called life; which grows
higher than soul can hope or mind can hide)
and this is the wonder that’s keeping the stars apart
i carry your heart (i carry it in my heart)
