It was on my first trip to New York some 15 years ago that I was introduced to Coach, back then it was a little too logo-heavy for me, it was more safe than fashionable, and seemed a little low-rent than a luxury. Fast forward to 2011 when the brand finally came to the UK and I realised that there was more to the brand than the all-over logo print, there was a beauty about their use of classic colours and simple shapes.

Victoria Beckham has proved that she is a force to be reckoned with in the fashion industry with her latest collection – I just absolutely loved it all. This collection really showed how much the label has evolved, her trademark fitted dresses were still present and looking amazing, but they were joined by beautifully tailored coats, flirty skirts and lots of cute details such as baseball collars, as well as military epaulettes and buttons. This was a capsule collection of 22 day dresses, or as Victoria put it ‘workwear’ featuring shorter cocktail and day dresses, which was just a taster of the autumn/winter 2012
I am always a little hesitant on blogging too many New York Fashion Week shows especially as I am not there in person, but I couldn’t resist posting these gorgeous gowns from the Monique Lhuillier autumn/winter 2012 collection showcased yesterday. I think I was in the minority when I loved Sarah Michelle Gellar’s blue ink swirl gown worn to the Golden Globes, but one thing that no one can dispute is how absolutely striking Monique Lhuiller’s floor-length gowns are – and I am sure after yesterdays show a number of high-profile stylists are trying to pull these looks in for their clients for possible Oscar options.

Check it out – very clever and the clothes aren’t half bad!!!
