Winter Farewell

I am casting my mind back to my 2nd day at London Fashion Week… It seems like a long time ago now with both Milan and Paris Fashion Weeks well over, to me, however, it still resonates with a certain degree of euphoria and inspiration weeks on.

I will be sharing with you all the exciting brands I had met at Somerset House Designer Showrooms in the forthcoming posts. Today, though, it is a quick peek into my outfit on London Fashion Week Day 2 that Yahoo Lifestyle voted one of 14 best street styles on the day at Somerset House! How cool is that!

As you all know, I love shearling coats so when the weather still had London in its wintry grasp, I could not resist but to go for this gorgeous Rick Owens Shearling-collared leather jacket I picked up on theOutnet last year.

 I love the neutral, blush coloured leather and show-stopping oversized shearling shawl collar that will get you noticed from the crowd.

Rick Owens take a feminine approach to the classic biker jacket and offers up this flesh leather cropped version.

I played with perfect proportions by layering the jacket over Proenza Schouler Flocked moiré-jacquard mini runaway dress I got from Net-a-Porter a couple of months ago. I can’t get enough of the bold multicolored Flocked moiré-jacquard and rich velvet flocking. Nipped in waist with rounded shoulders and wide short sleeves, the dress certainly gives off a modern look This navy and teal techno-fabric dress is, in my opinion, one of the best pieces from Proenza Schouler‘s “energy, humor, and speed.” Fall’14 collection.

I worked it with pointed suede ankle boots and a leather clutch.
Bottega Veneta Nero Suede Boots I got from MyTheresa never let me down. Every time I wear them, they do make a statement adding a dash of playful originality! I love the elegant silhouette contrasted against a whimsical flame-like cut out design to the ankle.

I accessorised my look with JAEGER black ponskin gloves, Balenciaga Square-frame acetate sunglasses, also from theOutnet and Emilio Pucci two tone blue fold-over leather zipped clutch with gold-tone signature logo and a fold-over top that goes so perfectly with the hue of the dress. I picked it up on theCorner sale. I am so fond of the vibrancy of the colours and luscious fuchsia silk inside lining!

The Power of Shearling

So my shearling extravaganza continues past London Fashion Week.
If you are a forward-planning person like myself,  you would have undoubtedly got yourself a shearling or two by now, I always buy out of season and purchasing at least one was a no–brainer to me.

I still can’t get enough of this gorgeous Isabel Marant Drew belted shearling jacket I picked up on Net-a-Porter sale.

Personally, I like oversized jackets but if you are at all on the curvy side, you need to be careful of appearing too bulky.
Isabel Marant‘s signature boho-chic ecru jacket was the killer look on the  FW14 runway.

I love the way Marant mixes this shorter jacket up with a curly shearling body and smooth fur sleeves.
The fine detachable leather belt is a key element of the designer’s shearling look that cinches in the waist for a more fitted and flattering silhouette.

This ‘Sienna’ skirt perfectly captures Isabel Marant‘s bohemian spark. Crafted in an off-white cream soft knitted alpaca and wool blend with an instantly recognizable geometric print, it features a wrap front to sit slightly asymmetric that ties up both ends so you decide how fitted you want it to be.

I attempted to capture some of that stunning runway spirit but instead of furry boots I went for these sleek Bottega Veneta Nero Suede Boots I got from MyTheresa.

And they do make a statement adding a dash of playful originality! They caught my eye at Milan Fashion Week last season. Expertly crafted in Italy they show off an elegant silhouette contrasted against a whimsical flame-like cut out design to the ankle, adding a touch of drama. They look best with bare legs or thin tights!

I accesorised with my favourite designer – Alexander Wang.
There is something mesmerising about this amazing Alexander Wang Rocketeer glossed-leather satchel I picked up on theOutnet.

I could not stop looking at it when I first got it, admiring the beauty of the design, superb leather quality and the complicated curved lines that very much remind me of the forgotten shape of an accordion.

The bag features one open central section and two tab-fastening side compartments. The satchel is undoubtedly in the list of my top 10 favourite bags to date.

I could not forget my RayBan Wayfarers!
