THE FUTURE IS CHANEL

Fashion

I am almost speechless…almost!

Chanel’s space/60’s/ski themed autumn/winter 2017 ready-to-wear show was most definitely out of this world. The collection was true to the brands original roots, full of beautiful knitwear and rich fabrics with stunning headbands, pendants and spacey boots. Slouchy coats, beautifully tailored trousers and simply or rather, complexly, exquisite dresses just make this my favourite collection of Paris fashion week. Karl has put very different styles and pieces in together in a genius way.

Below are my favourites.

Chiffon Romance

Fashion

That’s what Valentino’s Spring/Summer 2017 Couture Collection is all about.

Pieces appear simple, however upon closer inspection, are beautifully delicate and beautifully complicated. Soft colours, feather light pleats as well as hand made chiffon roses and ruffles – I can only agree with Suzy Menkes when she says ‘the most beautiful and poetic show of the Paris haute couture week’.

Time to reform

Fashion

Knowing where what I wear comes from is becoming increasingly important to me, which is why I love the break out brand REFORMATION. It has recently come to the UK and is also stocked at Net-a-Porter. Their collections are sultry, simple and elegant. Reformation’s key pieces can be dialed up or down and suit the work/play nature of London life.

Some of my wishlist pieces below.

Clinging onto Summer

Fashion

…for dear life!

It’s the 1st of September in London which unfortunately means summer, all 4 days of it, has come to a close. But we must rebel and wear pretty summer dresses for a long as we can. Thank you Margot, Alicia & Beyonce for the inspiration #flowerpower
