I want all my monochrome outfits to be oversized gingham from now on. Agi and Sam have the perfect example in their linen-esq trouser and top combo and in their beauty of an oversized coat. Winter white accessories in the form of wool beret/beanie amalgamations and black or charcoal shirts break up the informality of the gingham and give it an edge of sophistication.
Berluti, your colour pallette, your suiting and your overcoats. Oh my. You can’t really go wrong with a beautifully tailored overcoat come winter with massive rounded lapels and preferably double breasted. Allessandro Sartori is a master of the suit and shirt colour combo, subtle but still fun. Sartori, you’ve done it again.
Couple of weeks late but Ami killing it with their first runway show. Very much into grey at the moment (the colour of my wardrobe, walls and couches would attest to that). Loose tailoring and lots of layering make this collection a thing of relaxed beauty. A few hints of sportswear make it suitable for daytime and evening and an all in one colour outfit bring some fun. Ah tailored wool, how I love thee.
Every look was fantastic but these are my faves. All images from style.com

I finally fell in love with the isabel marant trainers.

marc jacobs s/s ’12 metal heel oxford via exit magazine online.
the first i’ve seen of the metal heel trend for men. and a slight departure from what i’ve seen on the streets, subtler and more hardware-esq. i approve.
Another apology for lack of posts lately I have been very much neglecting my online presence. I haven’t even been keeping up with fashion month, shame on me! But a well needed lazy Saturday (and now Sunday evening as it turns out for me to finish the post) has put me back in a normal state of mind and it was straight onto style.com for a catch up. The first in my bi-annual fashion week spamming is the glorious new men’s collection from Costume National. The stand out pieces in this collection were definitely the outerwear. Sumptuous jewel coloured wools and even a turquoise leather coat (usually not a fan of coloured leather unless it’s a bag). All this emerald and sapphire goodness in sharp suiting suits me just fine thank you please.
actual genius in the form of celine inspired skateboards. this is coming from my new blog find/love (i feel so out of touch as it has been around for everrrrr) stop it right now. check it.
next stop is to make me a snowboard? pretty please?
jayne i salute you!
love this style, a maxi dress with a hood is ideal in my eyes right not. perfect for these colder november days we are starting to get when you can’t be arsed wearing tights. chunky sock and wedge is all you need. sorted.
after fashion week, the shows have dried up. i will now stop helping with the fashion spamming happening on the internet. back to a bit of everything pretty interspersed with fashion. until next season.
i bring you hayden and a beautiful photograph that i sadly do not know the photographer of so if you know please do let me know.
everyone should be wearing silk jammies and strappy high heels for s/s ’12. christophe says so and so it shall be. christophe lemaire that is, or mr. hermes to you.
it’s got to happen. this is a much more refined version of this look than we have seen in the past from the likes of dolce and celine (although still in love with phoebe’s colour block beuts).
praise to silk taffetta! my new favourite thing.
