Details from 'Cloth', an RMIT Fashion Exhibition, which is open daily from 10 to 6, until this Sunday (Nov. 20), at Level One GPO, Melbourne ... I think the set-up is fairly ordinary but there are some great pieces -  see also this week's Michi, featuring Kimbra (following a week-end of unlikely obsession).

Loulou de la Falaise by Helmut Newton

Two recent stories written for Michi - one that's a tiny bit silly, although the bread was excellent - and one that's a tiny tribute to Loulou de la Falaise (1948 - 2011), which happens to be my 50th piece.

"... her great-grandmother was Vavarina Pike, who ignited County Wexford in ivory fedoras and beige cardigns acquired at the gentlemen's departments of the London stores ..."

"... Wherever it was, she said: "We hit it off straight away because he had a very silly sense of humour. We got into a fit of giggles" ... "

"Loulou de la Falaise, Yves Saint Laurent muse and collaborator, has passed away... "
