Bunny Ears For Easter

In celebration of Easter Sunday, here is a fashion flashback to make you smile… the infamously adorable Louis Vuitton Bunny Ears! Jadore!

Fashion is meant to be fun & what says a ‘hopping good time’ better than bunny ears?

Take your look to new heights this Easter Sunday with a pair of bunny ears. Appearing on the Louis Vuitton Fall 2009 runway, Marc Jacobs’ bunny ears became an accessories sensation.

Sweet, chic bunny ears topped heads with enviable panache. Show stylist Katie Grand was reportedly inspired by “a black doe rabbit in the pet shop on the corner”. Created by Stephen Jones, the bunny ears brought a fresh frivolity to the catwalk. Of the ears, Marc Jacobs said: “I like the kind of Playboy, French coquette aspect to it.”  For the Fall campaign, around 40 pairs of bunny ears were made in order to find the perfect shade for Madonna.

Will you wear your bunny ears today? Happy Easter Everyone! xx

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

Sofia Coppola

“She is young and sweet and beautiful. The epitome of this girl I fantasize of.” –
Marc Jacobs

Long time friend and muse of Marc Jacobs, Sofia Coppola has become known for her signature understated yet effortlessly chic style. 

A regular on Best-Dressed Lists around the world, she has a nonchalant approach to dressing and her elegant wardrobe is a testament to her luxurious take on minimalism.

Having lived in France for a number of years, Coppola has become the quintessential ‘American in Paris’. Often choosing a crisp button down shirt and tailored trousers – a perfect example of the Director’s preference for a minimal look with a slightly unexpected twist – Coppola is equally at home in delightfully feminine pieces. She also favours sweet baby-doll dresses and ballerina flats which perfectly compliment her gamine-like frame.

Coppola’s ‘less is more’ approach also extends to her styling. With loose naturally glowing hair and a soft make-up palette; her confidence and effortless style is ever radiant.

Did you know… Sofia Coppola directed the Miss Dior Chérie fragrance campaigns for Christian Dior starring Maryna Linchuk and then Natalie Portman; as well as the Marni collection campaign for H&M?

Do you covet Sofia Coppola’s style?
