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.

Downtime January

Following all the Christmas festivities, January has arrived, and no matter how hard I try to fight it, it is undoubtedly the most depressing month of the year.

Fancy beating January blues while getting comfy and warm at the same time? Check out the below!

Introducing a splash of colour into your wardrobe is an instant mood lifter.

Monochrome Mood

I never get tired of monochrome – casting off the Sixties connotations, monochrome is all about pattern play, couture detailing, geometrics and intelligent design! Add on a splash of colour to match your mood.

Flush of blush

How about dusky pink? It might not be your favourite colour but certainly fashion is having an affection with it. Pink isn’t just about being “pretty” anymore…

Jewellery at LFW15

I love jewellery as much as I love clothes, so when I visited the Jewellery Designer Show Rooms during London Fashion Week back in February, it was a feast for the eyes!

KATTRI is a contemporary jewellery brand set up by Amanda Debrasi whose designs aim at creating beauty and richness by mixing simple lines and pure shapes with gems at the focal point.

I adored this multidimensional Triple Dodecahedron Ring made of 18ct gold and black diamond. So eclectic and eye catching!

One of my favourites was the Qudrant Short Ring made of 9ct Rose gold and rose quartz.

LILY KAMPER is another jewellery designer whose designs are both captivating and very wearable. After graduating from London College of Art, Lily set up her London based brand that reflect her love for colour and unusual material blends embodying modern luxury.

Each piece of jewellery is hand-turned on a lathe from blocks of resin and Perspex. The fine jewellery pieces are all set with white, blue and pink sapphires and each season a new exclusive solid stone column is added to the collection.

I just could not get enough of the striking colour combinations! Stunning!

Lily Kamper‘s Jewellery is stocked globally from Liberty in London, Colette in Paris to the new Harvey Nichols in Azerbaijan. Lily has also been named one of the Professional Jeweller Hot 100 in 2014.

BAM-B is a contemporary jewellery brand co-founded in London by Brittany Glossop & Caitlin Briody. This beautiful, clean and minimalistic jewellery, handcrafted using premium materials, and attention to detail,  combine classic, long-lasting design with a modern luxury touch.

Collier Pétale. 7 necklace made of sterling sliver and plated in 18ct. Gold stood out from Ptéale Collection.

I loved this Pétale 2 ring with a feminine floral design from AW15 collection featuring two petals in an architectural positioning.

I am a fan of silver so this Square cut double strand bangle in 925 Sterling Silver struck a cord with me.

Melanie Georgacopoulos is yet another fine jewellery designer who, with her M/G collection continues to explore the endless aesthetic possibilities of the pearl as the epicentre of the modern woman’s accessory. Seemingly vulnerable and feminine yet tough and enduring the pearl’s symbolic contradictions are poised throughout each collection to create contrasts of texture and feel, toughness and volume. Her designs are certainly very wearable and ageless!

I fell in love in this Rose Gold Icon Ring – a statement piece from the Icon Collection, perfectly geometric, this bold design compliments all styles.

These Icon Fine Drop Earrings also caught my eye! The classic shapes of the Icon ring are here reinvented in the warm hues of rose gold with graduated brown and white diamonds. Elegant and luxurious, the earrings glitter in the light for the ultimate, unassuming glamour.

The appeal of teal

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and New Year and are all looking forward to the wonders of 2015! It has been a while since my last post as I was enjoying my down-time off-line! I have somehow resisted featuring any glitzy and Christmassy ensembles, instead went for not-so-festive yet still funky winter leather outfit.

Working with different shades of ivory, charcoal and black, Rick Owens is the king of avant-garde dazzle. You can always count on adding the edge to your urban wardrobe with the Paris-based designer’s luxe leather jackets.

image

This Rick Owens Winged Salon shearling-lined leather jacket I picked up on theOutnet is one of a kind!
I love the rich pumpkin shade and the distressed leather look with shearling-lined collar. The oversized, cropped style and asymmetric snap fastening at front give the jacket uber cool look. The sleeves are fairly long so not to everyone’s liking but I adore this daring cut and fit.

Carven is yet another label on the list of my favourite brands working Parisian elegance and eclectic aesthetics. This asymmetric statement skirt is certainly having its moment and it is easy to see why with Carven‘s vivid teal version.

A geometric hem – longer at the back – and tactile wool bouclé sets it apart.

I am back with yet another of Alexander Wang‘s designs. I picked up these dark brown Anouck cutout-heel leather ankle boots on theOutnet.

I love the wedge cut-out leather heel with metal hardware plate that truly makes these boots unique.
The elasticated side panels and a pull tab at the rear create no-fuss slip on and off. They are very comfortable, too!
