LOOK DU JOUR: A SLICE OF SUMMER

Wednesday, 23 July 2014

As all of you know the weather has been up and down lately, but hopefully it will stay sunny for a very long time. I have noticed that people always complain when it's either cold and rainy, but people also complain when it's hot. Why? Can't they just enjoy one or the other? I am extremely happy that it's hot and don't have to worry about layers! I mean I wouldn't mind sitting next to a pool or the beach in this weather, but what can I do in London, just accept the fact it's a city and enjoy the weather while it lasts. 


8TH JULY HAUTE COUTURE: AUTUMN/WINTER 2014-15 - paris

Chanel

At the Chanel's fashion show, there were some very interesting outfits. Some I absolutely loved, but there were some that just didn't really make sense to me. Of course I will explain more of that bellow. 

Throughout the show I got an impression of Oliver Twist or something that people wore in the 18th century, and to be honest it was very surprising from Chanel. Usually Karl Lagerfeld makes the outfits look very classy, but this time he showed a different side of his talent, historical. He is a very talented designer, as everyone knows, and this is why I'm not surprised he could make this collection work with his inspiration from the past. 

All the outfits were paired with flip-flops, and this was a different turn from the usual. I'm not saying it was a bad turn, but not what I was expecting. The models weren't only all wearing flip-flops, but caps and quiffs on the back of their heads. I'm not really into hats/caps as they don't really suite me, but any of these I would absolutely wear without arguing. Speaking of accessories, the bags were satchel bags, and they weren't at all inspired by the 18th century. Very trendy and fashion forward. I really liked how they still matched the outfit, and made the outfit chic and up to date. 

A-line and Trapeze shapes were seen in dresses and skirts on the runway, and these cocktail attire had a nice palette of greys, (pale gold, black and smoky white). In the show I've seen a bit of crystals in different places, I do think they gave the whole show a bit of an elegance and excitement to it. Crystals are always great on clothes, of course if you over do it you might end up looking trashy.

(Please continue reading, you will find my comments on the outfits at the end of each look.)



7TH JULY HAUTE COUTURE: AUTUMN/WINTER 2014-15 - paris

Giambattista Valli

A lot of the outfits were combined with shirts, which made the whole collection so much more interesting, it gave it an edge. From Giambattista Valli's past shows I have noticed that he likes to make the outfits more stiff and bold, but now this collection gave me the impression of a bit more fabulous and more girly. I noticed that the outfits from this show, show off the woman's shape more effectively than before. Love it!

The whole collection was fresh and energetic, especially the twisted turbans made the whole show so much cooler. I will be getting myself some of that! Of course that's not what the whole show was about, but it was something I couldn't get out of my head. Most of the looks had a striped monochrome pattern on them, and I'm absolutely obsessed with monochromes, and hope it will stay around for a while! 

There was ballgowns, which had lots of layers of taffeta and feather, and I couldn't of been anymore exited about them. They were just so elegant, but had a little bit of an edge to it. Of course I wasn't expecting ballgowns to be mixed with shirts, but they pulled it off, and couldn't of looked any more fashion forward. All of the outfits were combined with Moscot sunglasses, and that was another amazing idea, as they will make the whole outfit so much more thrilling. A pair of sunglasses are always needed, never heard anybody say that a pair of sunglasses made a look worse, have you?

Versace

At the Versace show they had a classic backdrop with a runway lined with fur. All of the outfits gave an impression of sexiness and elegance. The jackets and skirts were combined sheer ladder inserts and  silver buckles which gave the outfits a bit of an edge. I have seen pressed pencil trousers layered under lean skirts and I think they couldn't of been any cooler, hopefully everyone's going to be taking it in and it can become a big thing very soon. (I will be trying it out for sure!) 

LOOK DU JOUR: STRIPY DRESS

Sunday, 22 June 2014

Thank god the weather is getting so much better, and I can wear my dresses. I mean I still wear dresses in the winter, but now I don't have to worry about being cold. But I'm very sure all of you girls feel the same. 

I don't know if you guys remember about the event I went to for the Crew Clothing's 21st birthday? At the event they gave everybody an item of their choice from the store, but if you don't remember what I'm talking about, you can read about it here.

LAUNCH PARTY: BOBBIES

Wednesday, 18 June 2014

I'm so sorry I haven't posted lately, I've just been so busy with everything and on top of that I was moving houses. But it's better late than never, right? 

So last week I was invited by a fellow blogger, Prince Cassius, to an event, (he was also DJ-ing there) so I couldn't say no. This event was a launch party for Bobbies which took place in the Piazza, Covent Garden. 

LOOK DU JOUR: TULIP T-DRESS

Sunday, 8 June 2014

For todays sunny weather I decided to wear a T-dress made by Bundy & Webster. I'm a bit taller than normal people so this T-dress turned into a large T-shirt for me, but I can make anything work. I put a belt around my waist so it gives my hips a bit of a shape, which I wouldn't of done if I was shorter and the dress would of covered my bum. This tee is actually very comfy and soft, but that's what you get for 100% cotton, right? 

NEW COLLECTION SHOWCASE: QUEENDOM OF QEUF'S

Saturday, 7 June 2014

Queendom of Oeuf had a showcase last Wednesday to show us their new collection. It was hosted in the Surgery Group PR's offices just off of Oxford St. When I got there they had all kinds of little nibbles and different types of tea. 


The designer called herself "The Queen", but she didn't have a crown. (She should of had one.) When we asked the designer about what was her motivation for this collection, she basically explained how fascinated she is with eggs. If you look closely at the designs you can see egg shaped designs hidden in them, so to have all the designs different but have the same inspiration behind them is very clever!

CAMPAIGN LAUNCH: 'WORLD OF ROSALINA'

Saturday, 31 May 2014


Wednesday I was lucky enough to be invited to a campaign launch for Rosalina Nacken, which was hosted by Surgery Group PR. This event took place just off of Oxford St, which was a very handy location as I had to go to a different event after this one just based in Soho. They had lots of champagne and wine flowing and loads of canapé.
