Praise for Luella Bartley:
‘A star – a poster child for London cool’ – American Vogue.
‘The air of effortless cool that surrounds the Luella label’ – The Guardian.
‘As calm and cool as a raindrop sliding down a windowpane’ – London Evening Standard.
Born in 1974 in Stratford-upon-Avon, Luella Bartley trained at Central Saint Martins before working as a journalist on Vogue and the London Evening Standard. Ten years ago she decided to set up her own fashion label and gave her first collection the title ‘Daddy, I Want A Pony’. Named by Harpers & Queen as ‘the leader of London’s junior style mafia’, she recently moved from London to Cornwall with her husband David Sims – a photographer – and their three children, where she enjoys surfing and riding. Aside from her own collections she has designed for O’Neill, the surfwear company, and Target, the American chain-store.

This book is entitled "Luella's guide to English Style", but is not in fact a guide to English style at all; rather it is a stream-of-consciousness account of the author's thoughts... Read morePublished on 5 May 2011 by Sarah Joanne
I love London and was so excited to read about English style in a more insightful way as did Luella. It has kind of enciclopedian revews of main English style decades. Read morePublished on 31 Jan. 2011 by Ekaterina_L
