How can I possibly get the new SS12 collection? The customers of my mini-laundrette have gone ballistic over onions.
It's not the first time I get an e-mail like this since I attended the fashion show. Not sure what people think, maybe they imagine I am standing backstage with my detergent ready to get my hands on the new collection. Ah, the life of a mini-laundrette! Is actually more glamorous than this peeps.
However, I had to indulge in giving you some break: if you want the onions, who am I to stand on your way? I questioned, I asked, I circled the showroom and the vegetable stands. No way José. Not happening. I hope you can solace with my mini-laundrette advice, that is, I hope it's enough to keep you under morphine until the new collection is in stores. I stand by those who think it's a crime to show a collection that in the fast era of the internet we are not allowed to buy right there and then.

Subject: I need them onions
could you please help in finding a way to buy an outfit from the new SS12 collection. I just need to cut on dairy and focus on my veggies. Ok, I am kidding, but I really really loved the new collection, and see I live in Mexico and it's hot here, so I don't understand why I can't buy the oufits. Seriously, it's not like a need a cashmere sweater down here. Any suggestions?

your mother must have taught you well: a good amount of veggies in your diet is the rule for a healthy diet. I took your nutrition in serious consideration and looked everywhere for a preview-sale of the Collection. Nada. Sorry. You must master the art of patience. Although, the other day I saw a girl run away from the showroom with whole baskets full of clothes. Not sure they caught up with her. When something is a must-have, these things happen.
You are right, you probably don't need a parka, or a fur coat. Maybe the moodboard above will give you some suggestions. But for now, I suggest you go to the market and try to come up with an outfit of your own. Tomatoes are best.
(P.S. I have included the video of the SS12 to give your diet another sprinkling of health, enjoy)
