Best Of NY Fashion Wk

My favourite look to appear on the catwalk of New York Fashion Week, was undoubtedly the striped Oscar de la Renta Ball gown…

Classic and elegant, stripes evoke an effortless minimalism synonymous with chic Parisian style.

As one of the most iconic prints of all time, stripes have an unmistakable allure, which has long been favoured by many of the world’s most stylish.  

Oscar de la Renta’s striking Spring / Sumer 2013 collection, was an ode to exquisite ball gown styles and complete sophistication. Filled with charming and refined details, the collection had a playful, youthfulness and retro elegance. The show stopping striped ball gown was the epitome of chic. The duchess satin and silk strapless gown, featured numerous cheerful nautical stripes front and back… Je t’aime!

More On Stripes…

Introduced into the Fashion world by Coco Chanel in 1917, stripes became the effortless go-to for laid-back cool. Inspired by French sailors after a trip to the seaside, the humble blue and white thinly striped nautical sweater, was given a fashion makeover by Chanel. Legend has it, Chanel borrowed one from her lover and tailored it to her body – creating an iconic look that is still just as popular today.

Stripes have since been worn by many of the most influential names in history {from Marilyn Monroe, Pablo Picasso, Brigitte Bardot, and more}.

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
