London fashion week!

15 Feb

I still can’t believe it! I got my second London fashion week invite today!!! I’m BEYOND excited. I’m going to see fashion mode,which is three designers showing in the same show: Carlotta Actis Barone,Florian Jayet and James Hillman. This will be my first time going to LFW and I literally can’t wait! So grateful. Eeeeek!

New York fashion week:Marc Jacobs A/W 2011

15 Feb

Strict.Lurex.A total opposite from his S/S collection.This was the collection I’ve been anxiously waiting for! Marc Jacobs got ‘down to business” with this collection.A more tailored,with aspects of the Victorian age.I love the polka pillarbox hats,polka dots peter pan collars and polka tights.He’s gone polka dot MAD! My favourite piece is the leg-o- mutton blouse. It adds that ‘Je ne sais quoi’ to the strict collection.He also used latex in his collection to add to that sexy element!

Colours :Green,black,navy, burgundy,grey,white & brown

This collection still gives me that futuristic feel.

New York fashion week:DKNY

14 Feb

Preppy .Clean. With that hint of Parisian chic. Donna Karan upped the style stakes with her A/W collection. From capes to wide legged trousers to camel with fluro! Ok, I need to expand on the camel with fluro point. Camel is the biggest trend right now.Everywhere you go you’re bound to see at least one item of camel.Whether it’s a hat,cape,a skirt or bag! Everyone has gone camel MAD! So instead of bringing back plain camel, Donna has added fluro pieces to give it that ‘edge’ which I LOVE! Fluro in fashion speak means bright,bold, fluorescent,highlighter like colours. Also I have a weird obsession with peter pan collars so the peter pan collared dress is everything to me.

Don’t you just love the cape in the fourth picture? I love the way that look has been styled,layered without looking ‘piled on and scruffy’ which layering can end up looking like.Also the camel & navy jumper! Must I go on?

New York fashion week:Alexander Wang A/W 2011

13 Feb

Luxe sportswear at its best. The highly anticipated A/W collection has everyone talking. Rough,tough but still so luxe. He gave us blacks,camels,silver,grey and white. A piece that really caught my eye was the aviator tail coat. The traditional biker jacket with an added twist, a tail coat style at the back. Over-sized ponchos, goggles with mink fur trim and sandals added that polished,luxurious feel to the collection. My favourite piece is the white sheer over-sized tuxedo blouse. It says sexy but powerful.

New York fashion week :Jason Wu A/W 2011

12 Feb

Jason Wu didn’t disappoint when it came to his A/W 2011 show.He gave us tailored,baroque,cigarette pants,flannel coats,delicate pretty blouses.Lace is big in this collection.Seen on everything from the coats to blazers to blouses.He also embellished with stones and even used gold leaf in the model’s hair ! I literally live for the maxi skirt with the high slit! It’s sexy without being overtly sexy.

Kate Moss for Longchamp

11 Feb

I absolutely love this ad campaign for Longchamp ‘Faraway’.The collection is split into three lines :Faraway Chic,Faraway on the Road and Faraway Exotic.Shot in Morocco ( a country that is on my to go list!) by Alasdair McLellan.70’s inspired.My favourite HAS to be the white and tan satchel.I actually love it!

The collection is so non-fussy, just simple,understated without being too boring and unnoticeable.

Might I add she looks stunning.

When asked about the collection David said : “Topshop signifies youth and modernity and its spirit evokes ‘cool London.’ It was really exciting to work with the Topshop team as I felt they understood me as a designer and appreciated my need to make a high quality product without compromising the design aesthetic, quality of fabric or finishing. They helped make my vision a reality and I’m thrilled with the result.”
