Brighton Rocks

Brighton will always hold a special place in my heart and anything set in this gorgeous seaside town instantly captures my imagination.

As some of you may already know, I lived in Brighton in 2010 and have the most wonderful memories of it – spending time on the pier, relaxing on the pebbly beach and walking along the promenade. So when I saw Mulberry’s gorgeous Spring / Summer 2012 campaign I instantly feel in love.

Mulberry’s darling campaign, featuring Lindsey Wixson and Frida Gustavsson, was shot on Brighton beach overlooking the iconic pier.

The campaign was inspired by Creative Director Emma Hill’s childhood memories of English seaside’s. Perfectly catering for an English summer, Hill’S collection also features lightweight layering, ribbed leggings, anoraks and cropped leather jackets.

The spring brights in lemon yellow and pastel stripes are perfectly accompanied by delightfully oversized ice-creams, Brighton Rock Candy, and of course, Mulberry’s must-have IT accessories.

What a beautiful collection and extraordinary campaign xx

Fall Campaign Spotlight

Fendi’s Artistic Muse For Fall

Fendi Fall = La Dolce Vita

My Sunday inspiration came in the form of Fendi’s Fall 2011 Campaign…

Featuring Anja Rubik, for the third consecutive season, the photos were taken inside an artist’s studio and were lensed by Karl Lagerfeld.

When first presented during Milan Fashion Week earlier this year, Karl Lagerfeld and Silvia Venturini Fendi described their collection’s muse as a “buttoned-up-to-the-neck art teacher who was still wild enough to wipe her paintbrushes in her hair and unleash the animal within.”  The collection featured fussy-free femininity with pieces both chic and effortlessly wearable. Practical pieces in sturdy fabrics created a textured, luxe simplicity.  Structured silhouettes were teamed with oversized coats; while ribbed wool stockings in shades of mustard, teal and brick red, brightened the runway and were worn with sweet, chunky Mary Jane heels.

Electric, refined, preppy and mysteriously alluring – love this collection and the campaign!

For those in the Northern Hemisphere; do you know which Fall essentials will you be adding to your Autumn / Winter wardrobe? xx

The Fall Campaigns So Far

The Autumn / Winter 2011 Campaigns are beginning to be released and I have featured some of my favourites so far below. From Freja Beha dressed as a cat for Chanel; to the fresh faced Elle Fanning for Marc Jacobs and Hailee Steinfeld for Miu Miu – it looks set to be a memorable season.

For Chanel, Freja Beha is once again used; however, with completely different results. Beha is firstly pictured as a cat perched in a slightly scruffy photo booth; followed by another shot in the same location, but this time with French written across her forehead. The rough translation is Coco Chanel’s iconic quote “A fashion that does not reach the streets is not a fashion.”  Little has been revealed about the campaign so far, yet rumours are suggesting it was styled by Carine Roitfeld (previously the Editor of French Vogue) and of course shot by Karl Lagerfeld.

Elle Fanning and Hailee Steinfeld both look seriously chic for Marc Jacobs and Miu Miu respectively.

Bottega Veneta’s Fragrance For Women

The Italian luxury fashion House, Bottega Veneta, best known for its signature leather goods, is launching its first fragrance for women.

Described as a “leather, floral chypre” scent; the fragrance consists of: oak moss, Italian bergamot, Indian jasmine sambac, Brazilian pink peppercorns and Indian patchouli. The scent represents the “invisible, private luxury” associated with the House. The elegantly simple bottle is made of Murano glass, (for limited edition) and is decorated with a sweet leather bow. Nine d’Urso, the daughter of French fashion icon Inès de la Fressange, is the face of the campaign.

New ‘IT’ Bag Alert

Mulberry is already home to IT bags the ‘Alexa’ and ‘Bayswater’ and it now looks set for the ‘Polly Push Lock’ to join this beautiful group. Catherine the Duchess of Cambridge was pictured carrying a Mulberry Polly Push Lock handbag while departing for America.

The compact carryall shoulder bag, in textured leather, exudes a luxe vintage aesthetic. Available to purchase through Net-A-Porter for £616.67, I predict this bag is going to be huge (especially now it has a Princess’ seal of approval)!

Beauty Editorial Inspiration

Entitled ‘Forbidden Kisses’, Lily Donaldson features in a gorgeous beauty editorial for Vogue Japan’s August 2011 edition.

The prettiest tones of pink (used from the eyes to the lips and cheeks) create an ultra feminine, playfulness. The softness of the looks play upon Donaldson’s delicate beauty for innocently, seductive results… LOVE THESE LOOKS!

 Have a fabulously fashionable weekend! xx
