Shimmering, Shining Sequins

A fresh fashion optimism swept the Spring / Summer runways with shimmering sequins brightening up any gloomy day.

Sequins and beads add luscious texture and movement to beautiful bejewelled gowns. But don’t save these twinkling stars just for evening. During the shows girls were venturing out in shining sequins from head to toe, accompanied by countless bangles and trinkets. When it comes to sparkle this Summer think: the more the merrier.

Fashion should be fun, beautiful and inspiring. This pure bejewelled optimism is set to enliven every wardrobe with pretty sparkle.

At Elie Saab, languid silhouettes were embellished with rippling sequins for exquisite results. At Dolce and Gabbana the collection came to a close with the duo’s signature lace cocktail dresses, but this season they were encrusted to the hilt in colourful crystals. Pretty patterns and a rainbow of colours, created mesmerising show stopping gowns of twinkling beauty. While at Marc Jacobs a pretty bejewelled coat had unmistakable charm and a sweet glamorous appeal.

Will you shimmer and shine in sequins this Summer? xx

Clémence Poésy

Regularly seen in the front row of Chanel and Chloé, Clémence Poésy has become known for her magnetic, alluring style.

Elegant, whimsical and unmistakably chic, Clémence Poésy is the embodiment of understated French dressing.

A face of Chloé’s signature fragrance, Poésy has that unmistakable je ne sais-quoi or ‘something special you just can’t place’.

The beautiful French actress favours Chanel and Nina Ricci to walk the red carpet and often chooses relaxed tailored pieces for during the day. Skinny jeans, blazers, classic white shirts and black opaque tights are her wardrobe staples. Her colour palette is often monochromatic or in muted shades in classic silhouettes.

Her electric pieces, striking beauty and pared-down aesthetic make Poésy a true style ingénue. Polished yet without-fuss; lady-like but not frothy; classic yet modern; Clémence Poésy has that irresistible French allure.

Do you love Clémence Poésy’s style as much as I do? xx

Sleek Chic Metallics

Mirror Mirror On The Wall, Who Is The Fairest Of Them All?
Sleek, shimmering Metallics…

High shine meets irresistible polish, with metallic looks so chic they exude effortless shiny style

Sublime when paired with minimal, clean-cut pieces, metallics add a gorgeous gloss to your look. Across the Spring / Summer 2012 runways, designers dipped their pieces in glistening gold and silver adding a rich texture and shining optimism.  

Sleek Accessories

Metallic accessories pack a punch. Wear with a crisp white shirt dress (a la Gianfranco Ferré); soft neutrals; or bold brights for startling panache. Metallics are the perfect exclamation point in your look. At Gianfranco Ferré metallic handbags and belts were daring against clean white; while at Yves Saint Laurent metallic detailing screamed of opulent allure.

High Gloss Embellishment

Head-to-toe shine stopped traffic at Hakaan and Gucci. Metallics added dazzling beauty and a modern edge to cocktail dresses and evening gowns. Pieces shimmered in ‘Mermaid-esque’ sequins for decedent dressing.  At Gucci art deco inspired embellishment was polished, glossy and chic; while at Hakaan the classic white tee brought a fresh simplicity to a sequined pencil skirt.

Conjuring images of fresh modern glamour, metallics are heavenly chic for Summer… xx
