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.

Sky blue

A colour that we all will already own and feel comfortable in, blue – whether in shades of sky, cobalt, navy or aqua – is a hue easy to pull off and feel feminine in.

With this in mind, here is an example of how to wear it…

Back to knit

It is that time of the year when we start thinking about softer and warmer textures and long for the jumpers stocked at the back of your wardrobe.
Today I have teamed up the super soft knit with heavy silk blend and pastels.

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.

IMG_3533

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!

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!

Wrap me up

I love wrapping myself up in soft and luxurious fabrics that keep the cold at bay and with this beautiful piece, casual wrap up stole is being taken to a whole new level.

P1050380
Acne Studios Neela dramatic wrap was debuted at the label’s Fall ’14 runway show. this gorgeous monochrome stole is crafted from soft wool-blend and backed in black patent leather. I bought it off NET-A-PORTER, unfortunately it has sold out since then.

P1050323

When I saw it on-line earlier in a year, I knew I had to have it. This jacquard stole is so unusual featuring a single long sleeve, funnel neck, softly gathered front with a wrap around effect. You simply slip your arm into the single sleeve, securing it at the shoulders with concealed snap fastenings.

P1050403

It is definitely a bold fashion statement and will surely get you noticed!

I wore Jeager London black wool boucle collarless jacket underneath. You can’t really see its details so I will save it for the next post but it is one of those jackets that fit in seamlessly with almost any outfit. I have been known to wear it from early spring till late autumn months.

P1050364

P1050398

I teamed it up with Michael Kors black seamed zipped skinny jeans. I like the combination of black denim and golden zippers.

P1050385

P1050347

P1050344

These stylish MICHAEL KORS jeans definitely add sophisticated versatility to your wardrobe.

P1050339

P1050279

I finished the look of with my foolproof L.K. Bennett Selina Mock Croc Leather Court Shoes. Unfortunately they are now sold out everywhere, you might get lucky and hunt them down on Ebay though.

P1050288

P1050290

Based on a Shilo classic design, they are exceptionally comfortable for a 4 inch heel! Th famously modern silhouette is reinforced by the fresh take on the classic bow design.
