Burgundy and Grey

Thanks to its associations with warm mulled wine, burgundy feels like the perfect hue for this time of year. Throw in a big helping of grey and you have a colour combo that is quickly becoming a fashionista’s favourite.

Little Black Dress with a twist

How about a bit of TLC? Put a little twist on this classic LBD, as it is a party season, sequins and a splash of colour are obligatory!

Autumn Florals

Florals are in fashion all year long, but they don’t need to at all look saccharine. In fact, for fall/winter 2015, they have had a more boyish feel.

Swap pretty for edgy with a contemporary, masculine twist to keep florals looking fresh this fall.

Out for a wander

A few weeks back I headed off to Rochester for a wonder as it was one of these first beautiful sunny weekends following a pretty grim winter… and the smell of Spring was in the air…

I picked this Alexander Wang leather-sleeved wool coat mainly because I am so into charcoal grey these days!

I love the marled wool body with black croc – embossed leather sleeves and  notched lapel-effect collar.
How intoxicating are these shades of violet, tomato-red and grape! It is the ultimate statement making jumper for fuss-free, fashion-forward style.
What else would go better with this cool jumper than equally colour bursting blue leather skirt also by Richard Nicholl?

Alexander Wang takes the ankle bootie through Spring with this stretch mesh “Daga” style that lets your foot breathe! I fell love with its unusual stretch mesh upper fabric and the flattering almond toe!
Skin-baring mesh adds sporty appeal to a leather-trimmed ankle boot with a sky-high, commanding heel.

I absolutely adore this MARY KATRANTZOU Marinela navy jewel print tote.

This structured leather tote mixes practicality with a quirky sense of humour  – the smooth streamlined and sophisticated shape is decorated with the playful and vibrant coloured tikiman (what Mary calls “little pagan robots made up of symbols.”) set against an navy hued background, and features magnetic polished hardware fastening for easy access.

I love the way the gold bar lines up with the straps!

Finally, I accesorised with my favourite Fendi purple sunglasses!  I love the geometric plastic frames and purple lenses, so retro!

I love structured shapes and this is exactly what I went with for the third day at London Fashion Week!
It definitely paid off, just check out the Getty Images feature!

This stunning Mary Katrantzou Silk Blend Animal Print Jacquard dress I picked up on TheCorner sale is one of my favorite pieces to date. Inspired by the signature fifties New Look silhouette and styled in deep shades of jewel-toned jacquard, Mary Katrantzou‘s A-line dress is certainly a feminine choice for dress-up. Covered in abstract animal patterning, this shimmering piece lends evening looks a touch of whimsical.
I love the ink/black silk blend with bordeaux and silver-hued jacquard pattern.

To add a notch of modern classics I matched it with Acne Studios Mape Shearling-trimmed leather biker jacket from Net-a-Porter.

IMG_3454

Designed with a detachable, plush stone lamb aviator-inspired shearling collar, rough downtown-luxe hardware and a chunky buckled belt, is one of the most coveted wardrobe staples among It girls. I love slightly boxy cut and the asymmetric zip.

I was aiming at that extra edge so slipped into these gorgeous Alexander Wang Lys polished leather ankle boots, also from Net-a-Porter.
Not only does Wang create most coveted accessories each season, but this time he also incorporates the runaway’s utilitarian feel injecting a dose of futuristic style into otherwise, daily-wear pieces.
These super cool Lys boots are crafted from polished-leather with an exaggerated, shield-like front panel. Finished with a well-balanced ostrich-effect heel, this backless,  gorgeous pair look best with shorter hemlines.

I accessorised with the cute cream socks to offset the black sheen of the ankle boots, Jaeger black ponyskin gloves and Fendi sunglasses.

Of course, I cannot forget to mention the fabulous Mary Katrantzou glossed MVK medium cross body bag!

The design behind this bag is truly genius, it is different to anything else I have seen. I love the way the flap comes over the bag like a lid closing the box off.
The structured shape makes it ideal for on-duty dressing, so you can style it with silk blouses or statement dresses.
This timeless bag is a true homage to understated luxury, featuring panels of super clean colour-block leather and a sleek magnetic gold-tone clasp. Geometric masterpiece in my favourite hues of navy and burgundy.
LOVE, LOVE, LOVE!
