Here comes the sun…

I am really hoping we are in for some nice weather here in London… finally!

I like playing with colours while creating my style and with grey and blue being my latest favorite, here is a taster of how chic and fashionable these colour combinations and various textures can be when cleverly put together.

I have recently discovered this fresh Parisian label ATTO brand while browsing NET-A-PORTER.

Atto’s collections combine Parisian elegance with Japanese wrapping techniques. They say “It’s about this balance between clean and sharp and really sensual”

I love the label’s directional take on this double breasted jacket made in France from mid-weight wool with a contrasting sharp point black denim collar. The wide leather belt is super flattering.

I love the oversized fit, with drop shoulder seams, the contrasting black buttons adding a mod finish.

IMG_5473

I partnered it with my wardrobe stable –  these Marc by Marc Jacobs Mirah leather trousers with skinny-leg and a horizontal knee-seam with a top button and zip front fastening.

IMG_5588

IMG_5563

It is amazing how well they go with pretty much everything!

I added a splash of cobalt with this  Proenza Schouler Elliot shearling clutch bag: a perfectly-sized bag with a statement cobalt blue fur front flap. New York-based Proenza Schouler have always designed bags for It bloggers, uptown housewives, and trendy fashionistas, and they endeavour to keep their handbag momentum going with the introduction of this new style.

Epitomising the label’s contemporary and classic combo, this style has been crafted from shaved black shearling, smooth leather and suede.

To finish the look off I chose these gorgeous Proenza Schouler leopard print ponyskin courts I picked up on Yoox.

I love the V Shaped cut in line and slim heel which makes the shoes surprisingly comfortable.

Just my black Wayfarer Ray Bans and Links of London ring and voila!

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.

IMG_1697

IMG_1779

IMG_1742

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

IMG_1879

IMG_1839

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

IMG_1836

IMG_1834

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.

IMG_1878

IMG_1845

IMG_1798

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

IMG_1826

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!

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.

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.

Muubaa Troy burgundy lamb leather dress

I don’t seem to get enough of the leather outfits this year so here it is yet another leather beauty. This semi-fitted Muubaa Troy burgundy lamb leather dress is both contemporary and timeless. Still available on The Outnet.
P1020440
P1020448
P1020450With the demure high neckline and slim fit structure cinched in waist, it creates a bold silhouette. I love the two-way heavy exposed zip fastening through back and fabulous rich burgundy colour.P1020453P1020454P1020435The label uses innovative fabric treatments to create pieces that emulate modern edge. I teamed up the dress with my favourite Alexander Wang’s featured in my previous post and RayBan sunglasses that epitomise style, nonchalance and sophistication.P1020498P1020504P1020513P1020481
