Cutting edge print and digital extravaganza

Thanks to digital printing fashion designers have more freedom to be creative with textiles and fashion than ever before. The attention grabbing digital prints steal the spotlight at many a fashion show.
As a true fan of Mary Katrantzou surreal designs I decided to go all digital print!
I genuinely think this is the coolest leather jacket I own to date. I picked up this Mary Katrantzou Rodizo printed leather biker jacket on NET-A-PORTER sale (now unfortunately sold out).

Made in Italy from mid-weight leather, this off-white biker jacket features a notched collar with snapped lapel, an eye-catching graphic blue print alongside the sleeves. I love the unusual monochrome twirled buckled waist belt.

The jacket is indeed a living proof that no one can take Mary Queen of prints crown away!
I worked her signature look head-to-toe with this Palma metallic jacquard pencil skirt.

I absolutely adore the emerald, metallic green and gunmetal shades that go so well with the jacket.
An opulent medley of metallic embroidery and silk is not only super stylish but also edgy and chic.

I added statement See by Chloe off-white T-strap chunky heel pumps for a touch of elegance.
They perfectly balance grunge and ladylike style with elegant T-bar detailing, chunky heel and delicate ankle strap. I love the green welt piping too!

To finish off my spring peppermint-themed outfit, I went with this gorgeous Alexander Wang Rocco shoulder bag.

It is a much coveted and instantly recognisable cult bag featuring a classic satchel form with rock chic style including zinc studded base and peppermint pebbled-leather  The iconic bristle studded hardware and duffle-like shape give this fashionista must-have a very sought-after look.
For a hands-free style, carry it by the optional shoulder strap.
I love the signature dog clips and the exterior zipped gusset/pocket for smaller items.
Stylish, minimalist and practical, what else do you need?

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.

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!

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.

IMG_1818

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.

IMG_1841

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.

IMG_1831

IMG_1828

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!

IMG_1827

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.

IMG_1741

IMG_1766

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.

IMG_1822

IMG_1858

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!
