Olympic Metallics

Be inspired by the London Olympics & dress for gold, silver or bronze…

All that sparkles…
no Olympic event is complete without the lustre of precious metal. Salute your Olympic heroes’ with a glamorous, shimmering of gold, silver or bronze.

While diamonds are a girl’s best friend – precious metals can be equally enchanting. Whether you choose to add your metallic sparkle to wrists with selection of heavy jewels or to your eyes with a glistening shadow – molten metals can add a show stopping shimmer.

And while discretion is often the epitome of chic, don’t be afraid to embrace the heavy metal movement. A full length metallic gown can be truly hypnotising…

Will you be going for gold, silver or bronze? xx

Downtown cool meets feminine romance; understated yet luxurious…

Sofia Coppola

“She is young and sweet and beautiful. The epitome of this girl I fantasize of.” –
Marc Jacobs

Long time friend and muse of Marc Jacobs, Sofia Coppola has become known for her signature understated yet effortlessly chic style. 

A regular on Best-Dressed Lists around the world, she has a nonchalant approach to dressing and her elegant wardrobe is a testament to her luxurious take on minimalism.

Having lived in France for a number of years, Coppola has become the quintessential ‘American in Paris’. Often choosing a crisp button down shirt and tailored trousers – a perfect example of the Director’s preference for a minimal look with a slightly unexpected twist – Coppola is equally at home in delightfully feminine pieces. She also favours sweet baby-doll dresses and ballerina flats which perfectly compliment her gamine-like frame.

Coppola’s ‘less is more’ approach also extends to her styling. With loose naturally glowing hair and a soft make-up palette; her confidence and effortless style is ever radiant.

Did you know… Sofia Coppola directed the Miss Dior Chérie fragrance campaigns for Christian Dior starring Maryna Linchuk and then Natalie Portman; as well as the Marni collection campaign for H&M?
