I have my lovely London-based sister to thank for this latest post. With a finger firmly on the pulse, she excitedly told me about the launch of & Other StoriesH&M’s latest endeavour. With interesting silhouettes, clean lines, and a design edge that is rare among retailers of this size, I can see this becoming an exciting and different mainstay on the retail front. And the real triumph – the shoes!! What are your thoughts? x

P.s. Thanks to all of you for your lovely comments recently. It makes blogging so rewarding!

I’ve always made a pact with myself that if and when I get engaged, I wouldn’t turn into a crazy, wedding-obsessed, control freak bridezilla. Having been engaged for a few weeks, I was actually finding this promise quite easy to keep. That was until I stumbled upon Laure de Sagazan… now I can hardly control my excitement! I hope you’ll let me off the hook just this once…

My favourite looks from Balmain S/S 2013 collection

MMM

My Margiela for H&M wish list!

1. Trompe L’oeil Bodysuit $40 2. Oversize Jeans $70 3. Darted Sweater $129 4. Oversize Pea Coat $349 5. Oversize Turtleneck $149 6. Candy Wrapper Clutch $60

First Looks

While I’m not sure how the regular shopper will react to this collection, I am so thrilled to see Maison Martin Margiela’s collaboration with H&M is looking so strong and true. I half expected a diluted, dulled down version of the iconoclastic and avant-garde label, but thankfully I have been proven wrong (probably one of the only times I am actually thankful about this!). Available on November 15th – otherwise known as payday for many of us – I hope this collection is championed for it’s uniqueness and identity.

Liberate Me

I’m not sure why I find handbags so hard, but I do… I only ever seem to like the pricey Celine ‘Leather Shopper’ or the Alexander Wang ‘Prisma’, which, let’s be honest, is not in mine or most people’s realm. Enter emerging designer Danielle Foster, whose entirely handmade bags sit somewhere in the middle. Inspired by the darkness of 40’s erotic bondage and torture, and her equestrian upbringing, they feature metallic bronze leather, brushed pony hair, woven luxe leather and Foster’s signature marble print alongside traditional equestrian hardware elements such as buckles, layers of looped metal and stud detailing. Ahhhmmaazing…
