“Florals… For Spring..? Groundbreaking”

I first set my eyes on Carolina Herrera’s SS15 look on Instagram and I sincerely thought it was breathtaking.

I’ve watched The Devil Wears Prada too many times to know that florals for spring is so cliché! I mean, it requires little to no mental activity and so it’s generally a trend that should be avoided (in my opinion). But in her SS15 collection, Carolina Herrera has successfully juxtaposed a supposedly trite floral print on a futuristic and fresh canvas.

The collection seems to be a modern day musing of the renowned Georgia O’keeffe depicting feminism in all her glory as the crisp look remains somewhat bridal.

I know there’s a lot more to see from this years New York Fashion Week but I can’t help but get ahead of myself and deem CH’s collection my favourite look of the season.

Hope you like as much as I do……

Isn’t this mosaic look just divine???

PPs: It’s not hard to make out my style… Classic. Elegant. Clean. Simple.

Fashion Week Series: Diane von Furstenberg

In honour of fashion week, I have decided to do a series of blogs on some of my most iconic designers of all time, throwing in a couple of my most wanted pieces from this season’s collections.

First in the series is Belgian-born New Yorker, Diane Von Furstenberg (DVF). Although known for her iconic wrap dresses, I’m rapt by her use of colour and her infallible eye for amazing fabric patterns. Never complicated, her simple yet clever designs display that simplicity is strictly for the sophisticated woman.

This season, DVF’s runway palette consisted of earthy tones and a reflection of Africa where she says it all began. The collection had everything from androgynous blazers to feminine and floaty maxis, from playful drapes to fitted shirts. Here are some of my favourite pieces from her Spring Summer 2012 collection.


PS: Can you believe it’s London Fashion Week already….? *sigh*
