it seems each day brings a stuffed mailbox (yes the postman still walks-but does not ring) FULL of SEPTEMBER ISSUES- yesterday-Haper's Bazaar, as mentioned-with the Jennifer Aniston poses of Streisand, I do not like that.
Along with that cover -came the NET-A-PORTER FALL WINTER magazine FEMME FATALE. It is truly a slick savvy look at what magazines are really all about-NO BONES - Selling. NET-A-PORTER , for those of you who are-as one fashionista would say OUT- is a multimillion dollar online design-one stop-shop til you drop site created 10 years ago by Natalie Massenet. She sold her share of the company for an estimated £50m in April but "rolled back in" the day the news broke, investing £15m of her windfall back into the business. She remains executive chairman.

She tells the guardian- Her dream was to become a magazine editor but "I hadn't walked away from being editor-in-chief of a magazine – I'd just created a magazine for the 21st century instead, a hybrid between a store and a magazine that was delivered digitally " & now it delivers the paper too. Though it is all online I think Massenet must know the power of paper as well. The magazine carries a theme IT"S ALL ABOUT, and the most amusing find there is PRINCE CHARLES-full page picture- circa at his best age- KILTED.

It seems the KILT is ruling the runways again.
-and Charles is its most ICONIC wearer of note. This trumping- of All Clans and Usurpers of..., forget about the real historic figures- we talk of fashion- Sir Sean Connery, (there is a poll to help decide if you should or shouldn't here ), Rod Stewart, Vivienne Westwood, Liam Neeson, or personal favorite Marc Jacobs. see MEN IN KILTS here
No no- none of the above- but  THE PRINCE- CHARLES.

I say- I would wear something from either- within reason, Pringle bottom left, or the Missoni-(I use to be a big fan) top left (get me a shirt) I gave up my kilts as the twenties gave me up-the Missoni's as the forties gave me up.

Still got a kilt? Girls? Guys?
so many Men blogging about fashion-design.
so I wonder do they or don't they? should they?

I know IVAN should & his surfing Kings should.

I know BLUE does,

Why yes he does- and the proof is here
