The Spring / Summer 2011 Campaigns…

Colour; High Glamour; Effortless Sophistication… Fashion Advertising At Its Best

Major Fashion Houses Release their S/S11 Ad Campaigns…

If you want to lounge by the pool with Gucci and ooze pure siren appeal or/ channel Betty Paige a la Dior style; the Spring / Summer 2011 campaigns will carry you away on a high fashion fantasy.

Featuring IT models of the moment, from Karolina Kurkova to Karlie Kloss and Anja Rubik, the campaigns have been captured by some of the most renowned fashion photographers working today – Steven Meisel for Dior and Mert & Marcus who lensed the campaigns for Miu Miu, Givenchy and Gucci.

I especially love Fendi’s S/S11 collection and the photo campaign featured above. Anja Rubik returns for a third consecutive season as the face of Fendi. Shot by Karl Lagerfeld, Rubik is ultra chic and just stunning for the luxury brand. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE FENDI S/S11!

Which campaigns do you love or loathe for the coming Spring / Summer season? xx

Milan S/S Collections

My Milan Favourite Pieces…

Photos from

While I usually select my favourite 15 looks, the magnificent Milan offered so many delightful pieces that I just couldn’t choose! So I decided to extend my top looks to 17! These are my favourite looks from Milan Spring / Summer Fashion Week…

Luscious white and gorgeous shades of oranges and pinks again captured my attention. I want the entire Fendi collection and have a new found love for D&G. Versace offered its usual spectacular array of feminine pieces that oozed pure siren sex appeal; Just Cavalli’s 1970’s edge was undeniably cool; while Jil Sander’s maxi skirts in lovely shades and patterns was a breath of fresh air.

Meanwhile Prada’s S/S collection was probably the most unexpected. It was a feast for the eyes, offering everything from monkey and banana prints, stripes, florescent coloured furs, and shapes that took inspiration from uniforms – prisoner, postman, sailor, to name but a few. Miuccia Prada’s statement of the collection, “It’s time to be bold”. It is Prada after all….

In conclusion, Milan was simply magnifique xx
