Yesterday I thought about leaving the blog empty today or posting a drawing with light post because the flu still hasn't left the building (our son got worse on Monday and I am trying to remember when I last went out of the house!). The last thing on my mind was digging up anything fashion related in my files or spending time online to find new material. Then A came home and at the store he had bought for me a copy of the February issue of British Vogue. I only browsed through it quickly and I liked seeing model Kati Nescher on the cover, although I found some of the photographs of her inside the magazine more appealing than the cover photo.
Earlier today I decided to turn my kitchen into a café so I made latte and had biscotti and started reading my new magazine (let's call it survival technique). After viewing the Kati Nescher editorial better I saw no reason not to share some of the photos (that navy Valentino trench coat - love it). It is called 'The New Modern' and was photographed by Patrick Demarchelier and styled by Lucinda Chambers. It starts with the words "Fashion is in a new mood - modern and minimal, yes, but devoutly feminine, grown-up, and oh so seductive."
Do you agree?

'Fernbeziehung' that was styled by Katie Mossman. Here she is wearing a kimono by Kimono Suehiro and a Gareth Pugh bolero. The headdress is by milliner Ashley Lloyd
• For those interested in headdresses, Ashley Lloyd has a website where she shares her work
• Last week I talked a little about how uninspired I felt by the Paris haute couture week. I missed seeing something dramatic and theatrical on the runway. For me Elie Saab and Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli for Valentino stood out. I enjoyed viewing the Valentino details. I have pinned some favourites on my haute couture board
• Garance Doré's Pardon My French interview with Stella McCartney left me inspired. With all respect for Garance it was nice to finally see something on her blog that actually interested me, as I haven't really been feeling her blog lately
• There is no link with this one but I have to end this on a funny note. As I was creating this post our son was wearing a red blazer that belongs to his oldest sister and was playing the guitar ... and coughing. Who says you have to let the flu stop you from being fashionable and having fun?
