Amy Winehouse

My sympathies go out to the family and friends of Amy Winehouse, who sadly passed away two days ago on the 23rd July 2011. Although her death sadly may not come as a surprise to some due to her highly destructive lifestyle and terrible addiction, she undoubtly will be remembered, hopefully for her unique sound and style.

Karl Lagerfeld described her as a 'style icon' and 'the dark Bridget Bardot', using her as inspiration for Chanel's Paris-Londres Maison d’Art collection fashion show in 2007, where the models wore beehives and exaggerated eyeliner (below).

Shoe designer Jonathan Kelsey designed the 'Amy' shoe with the singer-songwriter in mind.

Amy also collaborated with Fred Perry last year to create a collection of gingham check, polo shirts and bodycon skirts and dresses.
