Leave your jewels at home

Bedazzle with darling crystals encrusted in your gown…

Exuding effortless sophistication and delicate attention-to-detail, designers added crystals and beading directly to their pieces for Spring / Summer 2012.

Crystal embellishments added texture and shine to the runways and replaced the need for dangling earrings or statement necklaces. At Chanel, iridescent pearls were sewn exquisitely into gowns, while at Christopher Kane crystal flowers encased the body with dainty feminine beauty. At Sass and Bide embellishment took a walk on the wild side, with beaded tribal patterns peaking visual interest.

Perfect for a modern take on day-time glamour, embellishment around the neckline is fresh, fun and simply… sparkling!

All That Glitters

Are you a Glitter Bug? Bring some glistening light into your wardrobe with sparkling sequins.

Like shimmering iridescent mermaids or twinkling disco dancers, sequins add an unmistakable sparkle to your style.

Seen on the Spring / Summer runways of Elie Saab, Christopher Kane, Givenchy, and more; this is a classic embellishment too pretty to sprinkle. Embrace these delicate metallic plates from head-to-toe. From this season’s must-have accessory – Miu Miu’s glittery heels (pictured top) to Elie Saab’s glamorously chic bejewelled evening gowns (pictured above); sequins are a timeless feel-go fashion favourite.

And sequins needn’t only come out at night. Case in point: Anna Dello Russo’s extraordinary emerald green Dolce and Gabbana Dress (pictured top).

Some Shimmering Sequin Inspiration…

Fashion Spotlight

Summer Brights

Make a bang this Summer – with cuts, colours & prints that burst with a bold statement…

From Versace to Christopher Kane –the stage is set for a spectacular assortment of looks simply too hot to handle!

Fashion is meant to be fun and what better season to embrace vibrant pieces than Summer. Dress with optimism for unmistakable extravagance…

Iconic Prints: Be Pattern Perfect
From those iconic Prada stripes to Versace’s greek key pattern (pictured above) – prints turn the ordinary into the extraordinary. Conjuring images of timeless holiday dressing, prints demonstrate just how fun fashion can be. Embrace a floral fantasy; a classical Parisian inspired stripe; or delve into delicious fruit filled decadence.

Colour Me Happy: Be Colour Confident
The power of a magnificent hue can quite literally render you speechless. Just think of the extraordinary fluorescent lace at Christopher Kane; the high-impact red at Versace; or the jewel coloured hues at Gucci. Combine strong, clear colours for rich, covetable, opulent dressing. Two of the hottest shades right now: tangerine and cobalt blue.

Show A Little Skin: Be Cut Out Chic
Nothing says sexy quite like a cut-out – that glimpse of skin beneath a gorgeous dress. Mark Fast’s crochet creations (pictured below) in acid yellow will unmistakably turn heads. For a slightly more conservative take (a la Chanel), choose high waisted shorts worn with a tailored shirt and waistcoat (pictured below).

Courageous Dressing: Will you embrace fresh fashion optimism?
