Fall 2007 Fashion

August 28, 2007

There are 10 key pieces for each season, and this fall, it is no exception.

1. The cape: a new triangular silhouette updates the silhouette and don’t forget to balance this volumous top with skinny trousers and chunky heels. Look at this cape from Jil Sander. It’s refreshing and exudes a ‘darth vader’ kinda look.

2. Super wide belts: double or triple buckled belts pull in the entire waist to give that gorgeous hourglass figure. It’s super flattering to the body, and you can wear it over a dress or a fantastic trench coat.
This belt is from Burberry Prorsum – love their collections this year.

3. A belted tunic: I think these were seen at Marni or Miu Miu. Anyways, a belted tunic can be worn over a slim fitted pencil skirt with knitted stockings and the new Prada curved patent shoes will look fierce. Also, you can wear a tunic over a turtleneck will look great too.

4. Trousers are so in this season. High waisted, slouchy, widelegged trousers are great with a slim fitted men’s shirt and chunky heels or oxfords. Another alternative is a tailored pair, which will look great with a a feminine, dressy shirt and stilletos.

5. Hats, hats, hats! Remember my post on the Lanvin hat that I bought while I was in Melbourne? Yes, it’s official: hats are in this season! They were all over the runway, from Hermes to Marc Jacobs, everyone was hat-ted.

6. Textures. Quilting was featured in so many collections, from jackets to trench coats and even patent quilted gloves that go up to the elbow (as seen in Burberry Prorsum)

7. Patent everything. Enough said.

8. Evening tanks, dresses or knits look fabulous, especially with bronze or matte silver sequins. Tres chic!

9. Pencil skirts will be worn by everyone with opague tights and oxford heels (see YSL)

10. Turtlenecks are sexy, especially the thin cashmere ones. Make sure they’re of the best quality.

Miu Miu – Coffer suede bag

April 17, 2007

A friend bought this in March, and I must say that it looks so damn good! The braided handles, the pleats, the gold hardware with clasp closure. It’s all in the makings of being such a fabulous bag. It spells edgy, too-cool-for-school, and gives a heck-care attitude. I can picture my friend, long haired girl, ciggy in one hand, cellphone with a Gucci strap in the other, wearing a Sass & Bide dress, Chanel quilted pumps and this Miu Miu bag. It embodies super chic.

P.S Feel free to leave comments! =)

Selfridges shoes round-up!

March 26, 2007

I went out shopping yesterday and specifically put aside a certain sum of money to spend on shoes. After combing through Selfridges’ shoe section for 2 hours, I ended up with nothing. Absolutely nothing. There wasn’t anything to buy. The thing is, I always manage to buy something from Selfridges everytime I step into the store. But yesterday was just horrid – nothing at all.

Anyway, let me sum up some of the collections.

Dolce&Gabbana: Why the hell have they come up with a monogram?! The shoes were a tad too white and had far too much gold in it. The DG area left me with nothing more than a headache.

Bottega Veneta: Lovely leather shoes, but if you’ve got leather weaving on shoes, I wouldn’t want to wear them out.

Dior Homme: Pretty standard. White. Black. How wrong can you get?

Gucci: I think the designers went a bit Red/Green mad on the shoes. And they’ve got these slippers with a red base. Ew. Not recommended!!

Paul Smith: Same old same old stripey stripey – getting quite tired of it.

Tod’s: Love their driving shoes in the array of colours.

Miu Miu: Saw a nice canvas pair..but was afraid that the straw-weave would start coming out after wears.
