The Power Of Pink

Across the Resort 2012 collections, pink was brightening the runway and bringing with it a breath of fresh fashion air.

From Michael Kors to Richard Nicoll (pictured above), pink is the go to colour for fun, feminine, frivolity this coming season.

If you haven’t noticed, from the colours used on UptownTwirl.com, I am already a pink addict. And taking a closer look at the Resort 2012 collections has only reaffirmed my love of this invigorating, passionate colour.

Wear pinks across the colour palette from cotton candy to luscious watermelon. Whether you embrace precious pink from head to toe, a la Richard Nicoll style; work with a pretty tonal palette of pastel pinks, as seen at Bottega Veneta; or go bold in pink and black inspired by Michael Kors – a delightful shade of pink can be perfect for any occasion and on anybody.

Still not certain? You can always dip your toe into pink with separates. Pair pink separates with neutral shades – from white to grey or chocolate, for a classically chic look. The Chloé pink trousers worn with a crisp white shirt is simply too-die-for!  Do And don’t forget, pink heels or a gorgeous pink handbag will also make an dynamic impact…

Will you adopt a ‘think pink’ attitude for your wardrobe? xx

Resort 2012 Collections – Part2

Rachel Zoe

I am loving the Rachel Zoe Resort 2012 collection! Playing with colour and print – Zoe’s Resort collection features her signature seventies aesthetic in classic dress shapes and separates. Elongated trousers, cocktail and shift dresses, blazers and caftans are the basis of her collection, which will see you effortlessly travel between your city chic day-to-day to effortless holiday glamour. Of her second collection, Zoe said: “With Fall, a lot of what I was doing was staying in my comfort zone. Here, I’m playing with color, playing with prints, playing with proportion a little bit.” Très Chic!

Yves Saint Laurent

Stefano Pilati looked to the ocean for the Yves Saint Laurent Resort collection. The nautical inspiration was blatantly clear with chic anchor motifs, rope-print dresses and sailor jackets taking to the catwalk. Sophisticated stripes looked effortlessly elegant, while puff-sleeved blouses and high-waisted flaring pants added romantic volume to the collection. Whether you are lounging on a yacht in the South of France or hailing a cab in bustling New York, who could say no to an adorable stylish stripe?  Or a poppy print dress for that matter…

Erdem

Inspired by Viennese actress Romy Schneider, the Erdem Resort collection is captivatingly beautiful. Featuring the designer’s signature floral prints, exquisite use of lace and ultra feminine aesthetic – Erdem’s perfectly proportioned silhouettes are sophisticatedly sexy and seductively elegant. Love the unexpected detailing on the simple dress silhouettes and the restraint yet powerful impact they have when combined with the enchanting flower prints.

Michael Kors

Inspired by a holiday he took in Sydney, Michael Kors’ Resort collection combined the allure of the city and sports aesthetic of the beach. Of his inspiration, Kors’ said, “Sydney is the ultimate city beach life. I was in love.” Featuring an intoxicating mix of fluro colours, zebra prints and scuba inspired pieces – the Resort collection will lend itself perfectly to either beach or city dressing when looks are broken down into separates. It’s summer, sporty, luxe, glamour! Love the green and black striped top…

NY Fashion Week

My Dream Fall Wardrobe…

 

New York Fashion Week has come and gone… tear! Luckily there is still London, Milan and Paris Fashion Weeks to look forward to (including my favourite Chanel!).

New York Fashion Week left us with so many delectable looks it is almost impossible to ingest them all!  From Michael Kors (who is celebrating his 30th Anniversary) to Marchesa, Oscar De La Renta, Rodarte, Anna Sui, Jil Stuart and more – there are so many extraordinary collections to devour.

The too-die-for white feather skirt, delicate top with silver sequins and fur head piece by Oscar De La Renta (pictured line 2, 4th image) is elegance and sweet seduction personified! LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the head piece!  And how adorable are the animal prints at Jil Stuart – especially the foxes below (pictured line 3, 2nd image)? Not to mention, how exactly does Anna Sui always seem to create the perfect balance of feminine charm with an ‘i’m with the band’, effortless, cool aesthetic? Michael Kors, Erin Fethertson and Alice & Olivia also captured my heart with some exquisite pieces I cannot wait to see next Fall.

Some of my favourite looks from NY Fashion Wk…

P.S. Coincidentally, every one of my favourite looks from New York Fashion Week are dresses! Dresses are my absolute fashion true love! So I guess I will be investing in tights… xx
