Not Your Mother's Trench, Not Your Father's Bomber by Kamie Kahlo




Burberry was founded in 1856 arriving as a collection of sturdy outerwear. As it grew, the house outfitted the first expedition to the South Pole and even adapted coats for WWI soldiers. This is where their famous trench began. After several shifts into luxury branding, the name had become synomous with plaid and check patterned accessories and linings. Roberto Menichetti took the company to another level with the introduction of high fashion and Burberry Prosum in 1998 - Fall 2001. And in the Spring of 2002 Christopher Bailey, fresh from Tom Ford's Gucci, turned the conservative line sexy. Still London, still trenches and bombers but with a fusion of luxe punk. As Rachel Zoe would say, "I die!"

Move Over Miley Part 2 by Kamie Kahlo

Miley returns for this shoot with photographer Lucien at Studio 3, Inc! Err, at least my inspiration from Miley returns. I channeled the country girl vibe while styling and producing this darling little barn shot. (Check out the tub full of bubbles in the back!) Our little Country Cinderella mannequin is ready to rake the hay, pluck the chickens, warsh the clothes and still make that hoedown throw down! Her get-up includes a Frankie B western button up, some great finds from Nordstrom's Brass Plum and a pair of darling boots from Target's Liberty of London line. My ace-high kickers are from Miss Sixty, the top is from F21 and those down home jeans are from Little Big. Stay tuned for more from this fun shoot but, fer now I've got to skedaddle!
