LFW A/W11 Highlights



Matthew Williamson
Inspired by Russian avant-garde painter Francisco Infante-Arana, Williamson's latest collection is the perfect balance between his signature soft boho-chic and edgy details like leather sleeves or studs. You all know that this is right up my street!

VOGUE Paris



My sister has to be the best person on earth, period. When she went to Paris a couple of weeks ago for  some work meetings she got me a copy of Vogue Paris and the Vogue Collections Hors Série. How sweet of her!

NYFW F/W11 Highlights



Jenni Kayne
Inspired by "eccentric weekends in the American country", Kayne's fall collection brings her signature  Californian touch to this season. She plays with textures and colours, pairing bright silk pyjama-like trousers with cosy jumpers and velvet pointed-toe slippers, or sequin slip dresses with oversized woollen coats. To quote the designer herself, "call your friends over, stoke the fire and turn the music up, you're about to be the coolest girl in the middle of nowhere."

Girls Just Wanna Have Fun


Every Monday my favourite club hosts dressed-up parties, a staple for any uni student club. Last week was 80s night and needless to say I went all out! I went for a Madonna-inspired look with lace, denim, pearls and crosses, but I still couldn't resist the frosty blue eye shadow and the bright pink lips.

The Coveteur


I do love a good sneak peak at other people's wardrobe, but wouldn't it be even better if these people were fashion news directors at Teen Vogue, accessory directors at W magazine, editorial directors at Elle or senior fashion market editors at Harper's Bazaar? It is now possible thanks to The Coveteur, which takes us on a tour of their highly inspirational closets. The best bit? The owners' comments of course!

Black Swan




If you haven't seen Black Swan yet, you'd better hurry up. Not only is the story breath-taking, but the whole aesthetic of the film is so inspiring. The beautiful ballet costumes were designed by Rodarte's Kate and Laura Mulleavy, whereas the characters' wardrobe was imagined by Amy Westcott. If the sisters did not get to be nominated for a BAFTA, they sure brought the whole imagery of Swan Lake to the screen.
