There are few instances at fashion shows, where you get to clasp your hand at your breast, audibly sigh and murmur noises of satisfaction without looking like a complete lunatic. Thankfully at Valentino’s latest S/S 18 haute couture show, I wasn’t the only one. To my right were a group of American clients, ready to splash their cash. “I’ll take one of everything please,” said one. I couldn’t tell whether she was being serious or not. In any case, I was of
It’s always oddly fascinating watching NYFW through the filter of E! Channel and taxi cab updates. “What’s been exciting you?” asks the presenter on Daily Pop. “Well… Jared Leto!” replies the chirpy correspondent, ensconced inside a glass box at NYFW’s main Washington Street show space. Designers move over. Jared Leto is THE happening. That sounds like jest but as pointed out by Vanessa Friedman, New York Fashion Week was in danger of becoming overtaken by celebrity and razz-ma-tazz
Fashion month has been and gone and I have plenty to say on the collections (skip to end if you want an explanation on the scant blogging) but first up, a time-sensitive call to go and discover, admire and enthuse in a gathering of fashion talent that is collectively standing for SOMETHING other than just more “stuff”. Sarah Mower needs no introduction as an inimitable fashion writer as well but her work as a tireless champion of young fashion designers, and particularly for British talent is
I have always had a thing for platform boots. It’s the nineties grunge itch. Doesn’t go away. It just hibernates for a couple of years then re-surfaces. I shoot people wearing them and say eff you to the theory that they make your feet look bigger – remember that 2013 post on that black pair? Vetements gets it (or have lost their God damn mind). They’ve elevated punk grunge to designer status with their clothing line and their current take on platform boots.
The amount of velvet footwear for sale is staggering. This is a guide to some of the best ones out there. First off, classic styles don’t date. I’ve had my blue velvet cowboy boots for about four or five years and love them as much as the first day they delivered. My friend bought the above Dries Van Noten velvet boots which have almost sold out worldwide, but once scored I reckon they will last for years and justify the spend. The below grey pair (insert scream face emoji) are

At the end of every Full Monty I ask a series of questions on snapchat and the above is one of them because it tells you something about their personal style. So which one are you? I want to cheat and say I’m both, but I think, while sitting right now in a pair of my fave denim cut offs, winter still wins. There are more clothing options and there’s more to wear all at the same time (this is the real reason let’s be honest). You’ve got the hats, the scarves, the jackets

Photo via: Who What WearThe sorbet-colored sandals trend is still going strong. However, the thought of pastels may be a bit too girly-girl feeling for some of us. Fortunately, we discovered a simple way to wear the sweet color sandals without losing your edge. All you need to do is pair 'em with a white shirt, ripped jeans and you're golden!Get the look:+ J.D.Y White Button Down Shirt+ Milly Astor Suede Wipstitch Bucket Bag+ One Teaspoon Diamonde Baggies Jeans+ Jeffrey Campbell Perpetua
June Ambrose and Natalie Joos demonstrating the art of both. Just like bags or shoes, we gravitate to one side. All of us love a bloody good shoe and all of us have way too many of them but deep down are you more of a flats or a heels girl? I would like to say I love heels more but that’s theory. I know deep down that my British DNA will always turn her head after spotting a killer pair of beat up Dr Martens or vintage boots and do not even get me started on brogues. A reader once asked:
Flares. Bell bottoms. Whatever you call them they are probably still my fave style jean. What’s yours? These above are by Seven For All Mankind, a brand you don’t really hear too much about these days. I found them about five years ago (here’s a 2011 post in them) and the fact that the hem covered my big feet, coupled with the strategic rips, sold them. Correction: the fact that the hem covered my big feet was the single biggest thing that sold them. This summer there is an
We recently came across this J. Crew catalog look from 2013 and with the resurgence of leggings we felt inspired to recreate it this season. The polished look consists of a minimal shell top, a crossbody bag, leggings and leopard print loafers. Such a great travel or weekend outfit!Get the look:+ Kate Spade New York Sunglasses+ DemyLee Mira Boxy Top+ Rebecca Minkoff Cross-Body Bag+ Halston Tuxedo Stripe Leggings+ Madewell Orson Leopard Loafer SOURCE: Le Fashion - Read entire story here.
