I rarely go in to The Kooples stores, they are so intimidating. Anyway, I finally went in today with a friend and I fell in love with the collection. I picked up one of the lookbooks, and the styling is really good this time, its getting better every season.
What a babe.
I’m finding that pastels are coming across incredibly feminine and not in the least bit sexy. The pretty colours are adored by Women but Men definitely don’t feel the same way. It’s so ballet-esque. Teaming a nice pastel top with a leather jacket and chunky boots might be something to consider. But, this Prada dress from the S/S 2012 collection shows that pastels can be done...
Crystals at Chanel
I always think that the production of the Chanel show can’t get any better every season. Every time i’m proven wrong, Karl Lagerfeld and his amazing ideas. To work on the stage production for his shows would be a dream, because that is what it is: a stage. The collection was dark and beautiful, which I enjoyed - but it was the accessories that I truly loved. The shoes below...
People went craaaaazy for this collection. The site crashed, and when I managed to get a guy at work to get me in through some clever programming everything was already sold out. Still, I wasn’t too fussed about most of the collection except for the below matching pyjama suit that would have been nice.
Coats by Chloe
Pastel shades on coats for an A/W collection is a bold move in my opinion, except I suppose from Chloe who are famous for these beautiful colour palettes. But either way, it worked and is beautiful. Chloe always deliver simple but beautifully created clothes with little design details that add excitement. I’ve just posted about the coats because they were my favourites, but be sure to check...
While this isn’t hugely my style, I am so in awe of this Balmain collection. It’s so intricate and beautiful
Christian Dior AW12
How beautiful is this collection of Christian Dior? Although it’s quite Spring/Summer like, I am in love with it. The cinched in waist is here to stay, with the feminine hourglass shape a key feature in this collection, and this season in general. I especially love the use of different fabric and textures and the really big necklace to go with it all. LOVE.
