Good news for those of us living in moderately chilly countries (or with rubbish summers), you can comfortably invest in a statement jumper as it will carry you through the winter too…just go easy on the pastels!
Celine has tried (and perhaps managed) to remove some of the unfashionable stigma of white heels this Spring and the all-white look is set to carry on through winter (yes even the shoes apparently). Personally I love the white tuxedo-style ensembles. So for those who would like to be a snow queen…behold!
Thank you Paris our prayers have been answered. So many girls chase trends (us included) and spend hours putting together the perfect ‘going out’ ensemble, when the classic little black dress makes us feel great each time. After a long absence from the catwalk, we spied some beautiful examples of perfect LBDs. Want!
We’re trying to think of when tapestry was last cool – maybe in the 1970s thanks to Carole King? But this coming winter we’ll be going crazy for it and old wallpaper-esque prints with metallic touches, brocade and intricate beaded and lacy detailing. You have been warned. Time to redecorate!
From flouncy florals at Nina Ricci and Cacherel, to pale pastels at Roland Mouret, Dior and Alexander McQueen, there were some cute feminine pieces at Paris Fashion Week – much less about the punchy digital floral prints of London and more focused on some Parisian romance, with references to yester-years from almost puritanical cuts to 1940s and 1950s lady-like silhouettes.

We have got the best PFW round-up coming your way this weekend but until then sparkly eyebrows and some less challenging Chanel deats. The weird thing is, Ke$ha might have beaten Karl Lagerfeld to this trickiest of micro trends. Voila!

We’re weren’t a-bloggin’ this time last year so SS12 was our first official fashion week- and there was plenty of drama. Here are our top 5 fashion moments (we’ll be waxing lyrical about our favourite looks post NYE festivities!)
1-Florence Welch performs in a shell for Chanel
2-Lyndey Wixon takes a tumble for Versace
Versace has had a big year and one of 2011’s best-known models, Lyndsey Wixon had a real catwalk moment after falling over in some extremely high underwater-themed Versace platforms. We love how she got up, smiled and punched the air.
3-Lana Del Ray x Christopher Kane
We are crazy for Lana Del Rey (her look and magical music) and we first heard it at Christopher Kane’s show, where the combination of clothes, super long runway and choice of track made for a memorable fashion moment.
4-Kate Moss rides Louis Vuitton’s merry-go-round
5-The Balenciaga bench collapse
Maybe it’s my childish sense of humour but the Balenciaga bench collapse at PFW made me giggle. While the Art Deco-inspired collection was amazing, it was like an extra fashion show seeing what Anna Wintour et all were wearing.
No surprise then that we loved this SS12 collection seemingly inspired by red riding hood – capes and basket-like bags and all. There was also a touch of the Wizard of Oz n the form of boots the Wicked Witch of the East would go green with envy over (oh hang on…) with pointy mules and knee-high boots that were part witchy and part cow-girl!
To avoid being too fairy-tale, red eye shadow, severe hairstyles and plenty of grey toned down the girly florals, mini capes with velvet bows (love!) and cute patchwork prints. Scroll down for celebs!
Apparently Grace Coddington told Juno Temple that she thought the collection was “wonderful.”
Paris Fashion week has attracted Hollywood A-listers galore (many of whom were frow for Chanel) but here’s a round-up of any we missed! Who’s your fav?
