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.

In the land of grey and pink

Today featuring something for a chillier day….

IMG_6626

Flowing coats are one of my favourite outerwear in-between the seasons. This  JAEGER reversible herringbone wool coat has certainly got the air of casual insouciance and it weighs so little, it can be tossed over the shoulders like a shawl – I love its astonishing versatility and flattering fit.

IMG_6400

IMG_6388

Cloud-soft and lightweight, the double-faced grey wool coat is perfect for making an easy transition into a warmer season. Designed to a wrap-around silhouette with a waist-cinching belt, this chic piece is reversible – giving you two tones of grey- cloudy and slightly darker herringbone – to choose from.

IMG_6452

IMG_6348

I wore it with one of my favourite 3.1 Phillip Lim duo: Wool blend mini-skirt and chic grey jumper.

IMG_6495

I love the structured look of this lilac white nylon shell skirt with contrasting flocked wool pattern throughout.

Fluffy lilac grid adds texture and gives the boxy-cut skirt a contemporary spin.

IMG_6499

3.1 Phillip Lim Cash Only Terry Sweater is a cool statement piece for a laid-back style…

IMG_6462

Slim-fitted heathered grey cotton sweater with ribbed round neck, cuffs and hemline, dropped shoulder seams and black raised ”CASH ONLY” textured lettering is a fun way to go about!

I accesorised with Jil Sander‘s sleek and sophisticated and roomy luxe appeal tote. This grape leather tote has been crafted in Italy with a green leather-lined interior and detachable shoulder strap, equipped with multiple pockets to keep your essentials in check, double top handles and protective feet.  Complete with stamped branding and a top zip, your workwear looks will be given an instant lift.

IMG_6422

This tote certainly offers an immaculate finish for all four seasons.

The final touches are JAEGER patent grey leather heels with a cute burgundy ribbon and pink sunglasses.

The perfect dress

What is a perfect dress? Short, long, fitted, loose, to me, the perfect dress takes many forms and shapes but they all have one common denominator – once you slip into it, it is like your second skin. Even without accessorising, you instantaneously feel like a million dollars and that’s what it’s all about!

IMG_1019

This Alexander Wang Micro-paisley jacquard dress is one of my perfect dresses.
Simple cut, gorgeous burgundy silk-blend paisley jacquard print and comfy feel make it a cool, new-season cocktail dress.The shoulders are slightly padded to make a statement at the long sleeves and the side-seam pockets give it a sporty feel.

Add chic court heels to complete the look.
Gianvito Rossi‘s pumps are timeless so go for it and mirror Cinderella enchantment with these Plexi clear PVC heels. Panelled with two tone, black and Bordeaux patent leather and transparent sides, this pair is a charming complement for both your office and off-duty styles.
Gianvito Rossi says that “the real luxury of shoes lies in the pleasure of slipping them on” and these pumps are without a doubt an epitome of this statement oozing sophistication and femininity.

When cashmere meets wool

“Baby, it is cold outside” is certainly the new London theme tune right now as it got really chilly out here.

I am the last person to welcome the wintry blasts but before I settle comfortably into my cosy shearling coats and knee high boots, there are a couple of less heavy-duty outfits I would like to share.
When it comes to knits, cashmere is the king, this ultra soft fabric is a symbol of opulence and unparalleled comfort.

I have found this lovely Marc by Marc Jacobs cashmere tulle frill neck jumper on one of recent wanders at the local TX Maxx in the City. Trust Marc By Marc Jacobs to inject this wardrobe classic with a fun feminine twist giving the essential plain black sweater a fashion-forward update! Amp it up with the optional tulle collar when the mood takes you!
The collar is button detachable and features semi-sheer polka dot tulle frill embellishment.

I love contrasting and complementing colours and colour blocking is one of my favourite styles so I opted for this gorgeous JAEGER Italian Melton wool Pencil Skirt in fabulous oxblood. This beautifully cut pencil skirt with a smooth waistband and split at the front and back is so figure skimming and a must for the office or evening drinks. It looks equally marvelous with a silk blouse!

I kicked the outfit off with a pair of Preen for Aldo Pravda Rise pumps featuring a pointy toe, patchwork leather detail and bold block heels that not only elongate your legs, but also keep feet comfortable.
I love these heels for the unusual V-shaped front finish and grainy feel to the leather.

Animal Print Adventure

I am all for exploring new trends and labels and today I wanted to share a new brand I have recently discovered on theOutnet.

P1050041

P1060054

Mother of Pearl is a cool British label with rich collaboration-infused collections where silhouettes and detailing stay true to the sports luxe aesthetic the brand is so close to. Expect effortless, easy-to-wear silhouettes with eclectic edge.

P1050017

Being a fan of leather, I love this Mother of Pearl anthracite animal print calf hair Leona top I picked up on theOutnet sale.

P1050014

The lightweight leather front, contrasting black satin back panel, and twill trims, make this peplum top a very interesting alternative to cropped jumper or a shirt.

P1050031

P1050030

P1050015

I have teamed it up with Raoul Embossed stretch-jersey leggings-style pants, I also got on theOutnet.

P1050037

Raoul is yet another label I got to love for its contemporary take on classic wardrobe pieces. Singapore-based Raoul’s refined aesthetic juxtapose bold paneling with strong patterns and neat draping.

P1050038

P1050044

P1050042

P1050021

P1050023

I must admit that this Alexander Wang Leather and brushed-twill blazer has become a staple of my heavily leather-laden wardrobe. I picked it up on Yoox sale but it is still available on theOutnet.

P1050010

P1050958

The jacket features very quirky leather halterneck vest-effect front with flap pockets and snap-fastenings through the front.

P1050953

P1050962

P1050955

P1050966

P1050998

Aiming for colour blocking, I chose these gorgeous Alexander Wang Edie Pumice Grey Cut pumps, still available on Yoox.

P1050989

P1050992

Yet again, Wang puts his signature twist on the slingback pump with a side cutout and sharply textured suede in half d’Orsay silhouette. Like all of Alexander Wang’s creations, they are beautifully profiled and comfortable!

Love, love, love!

Going beige

As the weather got a bit milder this week here in London, I decided to feature a jacket-free outfit.
I have gone for beige and contrasting black as I love the way these hues off-set each other.

P1050537

P1050441

P1050436

Last year I discovered & Other Stories label and I fell in love with their simple yet very sharp and invariably desirable pieces.
If you’re a fan of H&M‘s sister brand COS, I am positive you will love them too!

P1050451

Their collaborations with independent fashion designers bring up the style names that we might not otherwise have encountered  on the British high street. Moscow-based designer Vika Gazinskaya and Lykke Li, may just be its most covetable collaborations to date.

P1050460

This lovely & Other Stories two-tone soft and lightweight cotton pullover has a simple yet stylish look. With slightly round silhouette and a relaxed-fit, it accentuates the right parts of your body and gives off casual yet cool vibe.

P1050545

P1050544

P1050452

P1050456

Leather is surely the key luxe fabric and a leading trend for yet another season, I love the ways it feels and I enjoy styling it with other fabrics. I have put on this Peridot London Stone Randall Wrap Leather Skirt to complement the top. Peridot London are known for their contemporary, timeless quality designs, strong tailoring aesthetic and this piece is no different.

P1050485

P1050472

The asymmetric skirt has a modern tribal vibe about it , I love the way it folds over in front giving the impression it fastens at the fold, while the actual hidden zip is at the back. It is such a lovely and versatile skirt that can be dressed up with neutral heels and a simple t-shirt for smart/casual chic.

P1050470

I teamed it up with & Other Stories black leather ankle boots featuring a quirky wavy cut around the ankle that creates a modern and feminine look.I like the narrow square toe, stable chunky heel and the exposed zip at the rear.

P1050523

P1050517

P1050511

P1050510

P1050507

Modern Monochrome

There’s been one overwhelming winner for fashion trends of the season in my wardrobe – the monochrome. I absolutely adore this eternally chic combination, no surprise I have accumulated a fair amount of black and white separates I chop and change as I go.

P1040951

Monochrome is simple but wearing it requires a bit of forethought. The key is to choose the right monochrome for you, and style it up (but not too much) and this is yet another of my takes on this extraordinarily versatile look.

P1040943

P1040938

P1040937

Take a look at this loose fitting Marc By Marc Jacobs White Cleo Quilted Raglan Top I picked up some time ago at FarFetch.

P1040089

Originally set up as a diffusion line by Marc Jacobs, the brand is now run by the esteemed British duo Luella Barleya and Katie Hillier who injected into the brand a lot of cool tailoring and fresh graphics.

P1040991

This stretch-cotton top is a true style powerhouse with its elaborate quilting and oversized raglan sleeves. I am fond of the zip-trim shoulders that certainly make the top look more interesting.

P1040990

P1040977

P1040975

P1040956

P1040957

As a contrasting separate, I chose these laid back luxe wrapped trousers from Superfine I bought last year on one of my favourite online shopping destinations – COCOSA.

P1040984

Made from super soft black cotton, they have a subtle wrap look detail on the front and two side slit pockets on the hips. I love the tapered legs and ankle skimming cuffs with zip fastenings. A bit punk, a bit purist Perfect for a lazy afternoon out!

P1040989

Established in 2003 by Lucy Pinter and Flora Evans, Superfine is recognised as an innovative style leader, creating rock and roll jeans with a real London attitude. The designs embrace denim’s effortlessness, with the focus on fit and fabric with clever, often hidden, details.

P1040996

P1040002

I picked my favourite Alexander Wang Lovisa embossed peroxite white lizard-effect leather pumps to complement the look. I got them up over summer on sales at Jades24, unfortunately, now sold out.

P1040009

They are the most stylish and comfortable heels I own, that’s probably why I am a proud owner of these beauties in three different colours including black and blood orange!

P1040014

These Lovisa pumps are made from peroxide snake embossed leather and feature a sleek ankle strap, both practical and chic, it will seamlessly take you from season to season.

P1040019

I simply adore the stiletto high elegant tapered toe with t-strap and a side buckle fastening that transforms this classic style into something utterly modern.

P1040021

P1040026

P1040029

P1040030

P1040033

P1040036

P1040040

I accesorised with Alexander McQueen white and red graded shades and Links of London Annoushka Amethyst dome earrings and Affinity Kinship Citrine Ring.

Splash of yellow – ROKSANDA ILINCIC Light yellow Estes Charteuse T-shirt

Most of us are gearing their wardrobe up for autumn where layering is a must. I, however, am still holding a strong grip on the bold colour block silk tops I grew to love over the past few months.

This is my take on how to match silk with leather. Love it, hate it? Let me know.

P1030908

I love a splash of colour in my outft, be it a work wear or a going-out attire. When I spotted this gorgeous ROKSANDA ILINCIC Light yellow Estes Charteuse T-shirt on matchesfashion.com I knew I had to have it.

P1030920

This chartreuse-yellow silk-crepe blouse makes a bold and colourful statement. I love the contrasting grey Peter Pan collar, closely-fit round-neck with a back-neck hook and an over-sized silhouette. The juxtaposed textured silk and crepe front panel make it definitely a very interesting mix. 

P1030924

P1030927

P1030930

Create a vibrant, off-duty look and team it with leather pants and soaring heels.

P1030933

P1030939

P1030941

I have gone with these Marc by Marc Jacobs Mirah leather trousers with skinny-leg and a horizontal knee-seam with a top button and zip front fastening. I paired it with these gorgeous Alexander Wang Maja pleated suede and patent-leather pumps to complement the look (still available on theoutnet)

P1030948

The striking pleated suede, cut-out side and an open pointed toe make these pumps even more appealing, channeling Wang’s enticing nonchalance.

P1030953

P1030957

P1030990

P1030962

P1030975

P1030978

I put on these super cool Balenciaga round frame gunmetal tone sunglasses with dark grey lenses, to finish off the look (on sale at theoutnet). I love the grey matte finish and slightly curved dropped designer-stamped arms that give off the maverick look.

P1030982

P1030983

I have accessorised with my favourite Links of London sterling silver Annoushka dome amethyst drop earrings.

P1030989

P1030984

I have recently worn this outfit for the Bloggers Love Fashion Week Gifting Event and it was the ultimate test to its wearability! Stylish and practical – what else you need?
