My Style: Day One At London Fashion Week

My style LFW day1 My Style: Day One At London Fashion Week %tag

Today has been a busy day, tons of shows, catching up with friends some of which I only seem to see twice a year, being pampered at The Apartment run by friend Abi – the lovely girlies at Rimmel did my make-up, and for the first time in about eight seasons I actually got street style snapped – not once but twice, seriously small pleasures really do make me smile.

This fashion week I have decided to work some of the trends/looks I love most right now, first up is boyfriend jeans, granted I would have loved to wear a strappy heel with them but the cold made me go for my comfortable, wear in any weather Topshop ankle boots. I must have tried on about 20 pairs of boyfriend style jeans on the high street, and 19 of them look awful, but then I tried these ‘Sexy Boyfriend’ style at Gap and I fell in love with them.

What I love about this look, other than the fact I was extremely comfortable, has to be the pop of colour from my Primark jumper, which worked perfectly with the gorgeous white broderie trim shirt from the Glamour for Very collection, and the super cute Angelica London necklace that I picked up at Task PR’s LFW gifting suite last week. I also really adore my new Mickey Mouse ‘Mmwwaah – seriously how cute is that.My style LFW day1 close up My Style: Day One At London Fashion Week %tag

A Closer Look: Inbar Spector – SS12 Collection

I was sad not to see Israeli born designer Inbar Spector showcasing her spring/summer 2012 collection during London Fashion Week, sadly I was in New York at the time, but I was excited to see the pieces up-close at the Task PR press day.

The collection is simply divine, I loved the mixture of futuristic princess looks with the old-school Christmas decoration style couture gowns, and I was blown away by all the incredible laser-cut and the concertina detailing.

One thing I can tell you I will certainly not be missing another Inbar Spector show as I am sure the atmosphere at her catwalk show was explosive.

The collection has also had some celebrity attention with Jessie J sporting one of the oversized brocade jackets on the Christmas Top of the Pops show – I love it paired with gold leggings and Dr Marten boots.

LFW SS12: Inbar Spector by Ella Shippey

The themes of nightmare and hell were inspirations for Israeli born designer Inbar Spector’s show, appropriately played out in the grand art deco surroundings of the Freemasons Hall in Great Queen Street.

A devastating fire in Spector’s hometown in Israel earlier this year was cited as another influence for the macabre collection and was evident in the elaborate oversized brocade jackets which looked like they’d be shrunken and melted by some intense heat. When these were paired with contrasting tulle ballerina skirts, models were transformed into Tim Burton-esque gothic princess brides.

There were more wearable options in the faux leather metallic dresses, which looked as if they’d be tailored from the most exotic reptile skins, and these led on to entire gowns constructed out of twisted and tucked expanses of tulle in powdery mint greens and dusty pinks.

The finale dresses were mesmerising in their intricacy, like giant concertina honeycombs made from hundreds of laser cut doilies it was like watching a parade of the most beautifully extravagant Christmas decorations.

More Glasses: This Time From Kirk Originals

CONDUIT shopfront More Glasses: This Time From Kirk Originals %tag

If you wear glasses you will understand my on-going struggle to find the perfect pair of glasses. The ones I wear on a day-to-day are amazing, just a little plain, so I have been on the look out for some that have a sparkle for days when I need a change. I found the amazing London Retro, but they are more great frames for every day, whereas these Kirk Originals are more fun, fun, fun!!

Saturn Collection

As soon as I saw the collections online I quickly fell in love with the Saturn line as I just love the glitter effect to the frames. Also they have a great selection of colours from my favourite red, as well as cherry, grey, brown, turquoise, green, azur and orange.

Saturn Pan Azur

What I love is that with colour doesn’t bring wacky styles, which is generally what happens, the Saturn comes in seven classic retro styles: Dione, Janus, Mirnus, Pan, Phoebe, Rhea, Telesto.

My favourite colours have to be the red and the cherry as they are just so cute and would really love the Dione frame above, as well as the Rhea below.

AW11 Press Day: Thomas Sabo East Meets West

thomassabo2 AW11 Press Day: Thomas Sabo East Meets West %tag

A couple of weeks back I took in the delights of German jewellery brand Thomas Sabo at the amazing Thai restaurant Bam-Bou. As you all know I am a charm addict, I have so many Thomas Sabo pieces that I literally rattle when I walk, and I love it!!! So you can imagine how excited I was to see the autumn/winter 2011 collection.

Well it seems for AW11 is all about the Exotic Issue, with the collection taking inspiration from the ‘symbol-rich world of the Far East’, so picture Geisha dolls, oriental fans, Pandas, pagodas, and even traditional-style Buddhist bracelets. What I loved most had to be the colour palette of the line, full of black, deep purples, and ruby reds, seriously gorgeous shades.thomassabo8 AW11 Press Day: Thomas Sabo East Meets West %tag

As well as the seasonal Far East pieces Thomas Sabo always has a Classic line, and it is a gorgeous sensual line inspired by the opulence of the 1930s. I love all the delicate feathers, the winged hearts, mask pendants and always my favourites the key charms.
