I love Elle Decoration - I used to subscribe but in recent years haven't been able to justify the expense (ditto Selvedge - ah, me...) and only get my hands on a copy on rare occasions. (Last year the Blonde bought me a copy for Valentine's Day instead of chocolate!).
But the zingy colours on the cover of the January issue stopped me in my tracks in WHSmiths, and once I'd read the details of what was inside I couldn't NOT buy it - Matthew Williamson, Barbara Hulanicki AND John Galliano all in one issue? Get in!!!
Matthew Williamson's home is very me - I could totally be his flatmate. And his muse...
Hey, Matthew? How about it? I'll potter about the place while you're at work, keep it tidy, maybe go out and 'source' things for you - for the house, or as inspiration for your next collection? I could take a look at your designs if you like, give you my two penn'orth on your next collection? What? Well, OK, maybe not the couture, but the one for Debenhams? And I'm pretty handy with a needle and thread - gimme some fabric, a pile of beads and sequins, a pot of tea and the Torchwood box set, and you can just leave me to it. No, really, it would be no trouble - it would be my pleasure. What? Oh, OK then - I'll wait to hear back from you. Love what you've done with the place! Ciao!
