NYFW // KATE SPADE FALL 2013

When I first caught a glimpse of Kate Spade’s Fall 2013 presentation, I was all over the hot pink like a hot rash. But now I’m seeing all this bright citrus yellow, I’m thinking perhaps there’s room for some more brights in my wardrobe. And perhaps a little gold brocade? And a GIANT pink bow? I thought so…

NOTES ON STYLE // ALEXIS MABILLE SPRING 2013 COUTURE COLLECTION

I’m in paroxysms of blogger hyperbole and can’t find the words…

notes on style // Karen Walker’s Pre-Spring 2013 collection…

I don’t think I could be more smitten with Karen Walker’s Resort / Pre-Spring 2013 collection if I tried. The restrained colour palette, the stripes, florals and subtle ruffles. Heaven.

notes on style // Backstage at Oscar de la Renta Pre-Fall ’13…

“I like light, color, luminosity. I like things full of color and vibrant.” – Oscar de la Renta

Oscar de la Renta would definitely be on my Dream Dinner Party guest list. I’d love to pick the brains of a man who can work texture and colour into something so truly exquisite.

His recent Pre-Fall 2013 collection was further proof, were it needed, that Oscar is the king of ladylike chic…

Pink was the only colour on the fresh faces of the models, from eyelids to lips, the glowing look was youthful and beautifully set off by softly waved hair.

It’s all in the details, from buckles on shoes and belts to jewelled clutches and more.

Trousers with pockets are one thing, but any designer who puts them in skirts and, even more importantly, in dresses, is number one in my book!

The midnight blue, one-sleeved dress on the right is my idea of red carpet heaven. Sublime in every way.

notes on style // Dior couture fall 2012…

After what can only be described as a twitter-gasm of delight and ecstasy in the anticipation of and subsequent presentation of Raf Simons’ Dior debut, it seems only right that we take a closer look at the show EVERYONE’S talking about… 
In an almost seamless transition from his last collection at Jill Sander, the show began with simple and graceful tailoring – cigarette pants and long-peplumed (is that a word?) corseted tops (with pockets! I’m all bout the pockets). 
I’ve long had a love affair with navy blue, especially on the red carpet, and the coat above is going straight on the list of items I’ll forever lust after but never own. 
These beautiful ‘two-sided’ dresses are crying out for some red carpet action, I’d can imagine someone like Jennifer Lawrence or Shailene Woodley in the dress on the left.
And perhaps Natalie Portman in one of the above?
Absolute perfection. And loving the shocking pink with the red lips. 

All in all a beautiful, if somewhat safe collection, none of the theatrical swagger we’d come to expect from the house under it’s Galliano stewardship, but it’s certainly a far more appealing collection to me, and I can’t wait to see what the RTW collection brings.

notes on style // valentino resort collection 2013

Well if this Valentino gown wasn’t designed for Michelle Williams to glide down the red carpet in then I don’t know what was. What say you Miss Williams…
Well said. I’ll expect to see you looking utterly divine in it sometime very soon. Until then, let’s take a peek at the rest of the collection that’s been setting many a blogging heart a-flutter…
Alternative wedding choices? I’d certainly wear the trouser combo if I had the gumption (and figure!)

I can’t even begin to tell you why I want these white lizard leather ankle boots from Maryam Nassir Zadeh. I only know that I do. Cankles be damned.

I can’t help seeing Riccardo Tisci’s work for Givenchy all over the latest Marchesa collection. Of course that doesn’t stop it from being one hell of a collection…

{ notes on style } Prada’s striped parade…

How, on God’s sweet and beneficent Breton-stripped-world, did I miss the Prada SS’11 collection…
…those who know me or read this blog on a regular basis, will not be surprised to learn that I shall be taking my summer wardrobe inspiration from the images above. And the best bit? I already own so many striped articles that my bank balance wont suffer in the slightest!*
*Well, you know, I may have to top up the collection with a couple of new pieces. Three at the most. Perhaps four at a squeeze…
