Colour blocking in style

I love leather jackets so unsurprisingly,  over the years I have collected a fair number of them in various shapes and shades.

P1060811

My recent addition is this stunning Acne Studios chocolate Mabel jacket – a modern classic leather motorcycle jacket with a feminine waisted silhouette featuring stand up collar and padded shoulders.

P1060842

P1060839

The interior is lined with a warm faux astrakhan with the signature curved hem longer in the back.

P1060937

It has a heavyweight feel, so sure to keep you warm and cozy even in the coldest of weathers.

P1060928

P1060924

Low-key but luxurious, Acne Studios‘ jacket is perfect for casual dressing. I think it looks effortlessly cool with a pair of jeans or a funky skirt and ankle boots.

P1060894

P1060833

P1060834

I wore it with Club Monaco Mori mint and navy scuba asymmetric mini skirt that could truly be worn year-round. Club Monaco is a high-end casual clothing retailer owned by Polo Ralph Lauren I stumbled upon while browsing various on-line shopping destinations outside the UK. Worth checking out!

P1060926

P1060924

P1060920

P1060913

Unexpected and avant-garde, the skirt features bold colour blocking and a distinctive wrap-skirt silhouette finished with daring faux leather.

The mint, navy and black leather combination, and offset gunmetal zip create an interesting fusion of colour and texture.

P1060910

P1060884

P1060821

When in need of turning up the cool-factor of winter looks, put on those super soft dark green ankle boots from Chloé featuring almond toe and block heel.

I love everything about them, the super sleek look, dark shade of green and how comfortable are they!

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

I accessorised with Links of London Watch Over Me sterling silver necklace and Purity ring.

How to wear leather this season

As the cold has indeed settled in for good, the leathers are surely my autumn wardrobe constant and this is my take on how to pull the look off without looking overtly attention seeking.

P1040747

P1040761

P1040765

P1040781

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 is is still available on theoutnet.

P1040787

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

P1040790

Alexander Wang’s designs never cease to amaze me. With the urban separates that are perfect for layering, deconstructed pieces, contrasting fabrics with a spot-on finish, Wang undeniably is the king of downtown cool and effortless chic. 

P1040793

P1040794

P1040863  P1040865
P1040866

P1040871

P1040873

P1040879

Therefore, there is no surprise that I have also gone for yet again another of Wang’s designs – these uber cool Greyser steel grey Kori Cut-out heel textured leather Ankle boots I got on theoutnet sale

P1040832

I love the wedge cut-out leather heel with metal hardware plate that truly makes these boots unique.

P1040828

The elasticated side panels and a pull tab at the rear create no-fuss slip on and off.

P1040826

I must admit, they are very comfortable as well!

P1040822

P1040819
P1040816
P1040813
P1040809

P1040807

For the all-leather look, I went to one of my favourite leather labels – MUUBAA whose head designer Christiana Nicolaou continually redefines what is possible in leather design, pushing boundaries to promote style individuality.

P1040895

I chose this Kalu Black leather skirt which is a classic A-line mini made from ultra soft leather, I picked it up on BrandAlley sale but unfortunately, it is no longer available.

P1040900

The central front zip with exposed teeth and double poppered tab fastening certainly give the skirt a modern twist adding on downtown cool to my look.

P1040902

I wanted to mix leather with a softer yet colour-synchonised top so I went for this JAEGER London colour block black and grey wool T-shirt. Leather and wool go together beautifully. The duo creates an interesting variation of soft and tough textures that off-set each other.

P1040907

This is probably one of those staple quality T-shirts you have in your wardrobe that will go with pretty much anything you wear but in this instance, it was a conscious decision to highlight the steel grey tone of the boots, which I hopefully achieved:).

P1040912

P1040914

P1040916

P1040924
I picked up these Ray Ban Wayfarers to finish off this sleek yet grunge look.
