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.

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!

The Wang Way

Alexander Wang is one of the most dropped names in fashion circles admired for mixing cutting-edge designs with a laid-back attitude. I love Alexander Wang’s style for blending classic and refined silhouettes with an industrial edge, innovative cut and urban sensibility. His clothes are at all times luxurious, but also provocative, inspiring and wearable.

I opted for this style-meets-function statement-making Alexander Wang dark-gray wool-blend twill coat with weather-ready collar I picked up at Net-a-Porter.

The utility pocket was a major detail on the Alexander Wang A/W14 runway, and this cargo coat comes fully equipped, designed to hold all your daily life essentials.  It is finished with a neon-green corduroy collar and multiple, moulded pockets and a lightly padded quilted neon yellow lining.

I love the structured shoulders and a boxy cut that I balanced with these show-stopping Lys Polished leather ankle boots also by Alexander Wang.

There is something incredibly satisfying about wearing his heels, 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.

To finished off my Wang look, I went for Rocco Dumbo textured-leather tote I picked up from theOutnet.

It is a much coveted and instantly recognisable cult bag featuring a classic satchel form with rock chic style including silver studded base and red pebbled-leather  The iconic bristle studded hardware and duffle-like shape give this fashionista must-have a very sought-after look,
For a hands-free style, carry it by the optional shoulder strap.
