        I think it would be amazing in a high-fashion photo shoot! It is a great piece. I certainly couldn’t pull it off but I love the distressed look of the design.

    Love the clutch and the sandals.
    I’m not british but I always thought that the Union Jack is the most “fashionable” flag, if this makes any sense. I mean that it works really well in art, design and fashion.

      I hadn’t stopped to think about the Union Jack that way but it’s an excellent point. The design is perfectly symmetrical, which helps. It is complex enough to hold interest, without being the least bit fussy. Great material to work with.

    Love the Westwood — how it is evocative without being literal. I wonder how it would look on. The jubilee itself sounds like it will be filled with pageantry. Enjoy, FC, and thank you for your stellar Cannes coverage.

    Loooove the McQueen clutch!! A bit disappointed that we aren’t really getting in on the celebrations in Australia but I’ll be watching on TV.
