Martin Grant Pre-Fall 2015


Presently, I have filled my wardrobe (and my entire life) with monotone colours and simple cuts, my favourite shades being navy and charcoal grey. Martin Grant's recent collection has definitely inspired this indulgence that I am currently carrying out. I adore the tailored cigarette trousers as they are classic cut with a sharp edge to the shape of the garment. I look forward to one day owning my own turtleneck top, especially if I could look as good as these smart outfit pieces.

Pre-fall Red Valentino

The inner girly girl always shows when I see Red Valentino. Every collection I adore too much! This season the scalloped trimming reminds me of a classic Miu Miu cut.  I dream of owning a double breasted trench coat, (but maybe I couldn't pull off the transparent look) It's a beautiful touch to the garment below. I have become keen on using small pieces of tulle as a necktie, it's a simple accessory to build on the dress/top.
One day I will attempt the socks and clogs look.

Chanel Pre Fall 2015

After a personal disappointment from 'Reincarnation', a short film created by Karl Lagerfeld, I didn't expect an elegant beauty for the pre-fall this season. But, I must admit there were a few pieces that stood out, inspired by the fairy tale land in Salzburg, Austria.
The double breasted jacket was inspired by Gabrielle Chanel's holiday in the suburbs of Salzburg in 1954. Where she met a young lift-boy at her hotel whose jacket would later inspire the iconic Chanel Jacket.

Being Subversive

Recently I attended The Photographers Gallery in London, Soho.
Lets just say that I had a better idea of approaching the work by Edward Stiechen.

Chanel Boulevard Spring 2015


The 'Chanel Boulevard'
I yawn season after season as Karl Lagerfeld creates these 'new and exciting' collections with supermodel faces walking for the opening and finale of the set runway.
And yet, as this season of Spring 2015 approached today for the House of Chanel, I did not see the Feminism call out as an awareness but more of a new trend and idea to put out in a fashion show.
However much lack of pearls and attention to diamonds and sparkly brooches I saw today, something grabbed my attention to these detailed garments.
The sailor inspired navy and white outfits stood out for me instantly, maybe Lagerfeld is slowly going back to the originality and essence of the Classic design that Chanel once was.
