Chinoiserie, Japonisme… it’s all the same to Honey Magazine!

Ahhhh. Random cultural eclecticism. The backbone of the fashion world. Good to know some things never change; titling your spread ‘Chinoiserie’ and then referring to Geishas, kimonos and Karate. Good old Honey. Regardless, it’s a beautiful spread full of beautiful clothes. I’m very passionate about loungewear, because I work from home and it’s my equivalent of a sexy, tailored work suit. What I wouldn’t give for those Crowthers pieces…
I resent being termed a ‘layabout’ though. The cheek!

  3. Hah! That made me chuckle that chinoiserie and japoneserie have been collapsed together. . nevertheless, I'm quite wanting to have a kimono and geisha-themed event! x

    OMG! When I got Henry the dog from the pound he was named SUSHI. And he's a Pekingese! Not the same country!

    That Crowthers dressing gown is exquisite! I really need to start dressing in satin dressing gowns and pajamas around the house…And I also adore the silvered walls.

  6. I loved Honey too. I would wear everything here. I'm particularly taken with the Zandra Rhodes turban and scarf and the gold kimono in the last picture xx
