M&S Spring 2014 collection (1)

#FashionCrush: Marks & Spencer Spring 14 Collection

The Marks & Spencer Spring  2014 collection looks amazing! Modern, sophisticated & vibrant.

Think sleek styling, minimal design, clean lines and soft construction. Whites, nudes and champagne metallic’s, abstract prints in bold colours and feminine textiles, leather in sumptuous new shades, lace and pastel tones.

I mean, it is really hard not to fall in love with all of the new pieces! Here are the 3 main collections highlights:

WORLDWIDE

Worldwide is a celebration of the contemporary adventuress. Proportions are toyed with as abstract prints and bohemian layering fuse together in a graphic explosion of sleek femininity.

PRETTY THINGS

A rendezvous with romance sees textured florals, razor pleats and outerwear in sugary shades collide. Sheer layering, cut work lace and a shine of metallic define this eclectic fabrication and embody the contemporary lady-like aesthetic.

PAINT BOX

A contemporary exploration of the colour palette unites punchy primaries with the simple silhouette in an explosion of tonal diversity. Colourful leathers offset with luxe neutrals and contrasting texture epitomise the Paint Box visual.

#FashionCrush: Reiss SS14 Collection Launch

“Style – all who have it share one thing: originality.” Diana Vreeland 1903-1989

Personally, I love that quote and can somehow relate to it… And it seems the team at Reiss do too! Hence their beautifully designed Spring/Summer collection which was unveiled in Dubai last week.

The general theme is pretty relaxed, informal yet still glamourous. Think of a contemporary version of the Riviera lifestyle during the late 50s/early 60s. In a nutshell, resort comfort with chic sensuality.

Now I hadn’t been inside a Reiss store since leaving the UK for some reason and so it was a real nice surprise to be rediscovering the brand and it’s effortless chic style. Some great quality, very well cut pieces which looked to be right up my alley! I always thought of Reiss as the place to get a nice suit for work… well let me tell you, I was completely wrong! In fact, they have some real cool stuff including my favourite pencil skirts, bright tops and killer dresses!

Here is a selection of items I’d love to see hanging in my wardrobe right now!

And I’m not even going to talk about the shoes! THE SHOES! Look at these!

 

I shall leave with this other inspiring quote:

“The only thing that makes life worth living is the possibility of experiencing now and then a perfect moment. And perhaps even more than that, it’s having the ability to recall such moments in their totality, to contemplate them like jewels.”

Paul Bowles 1910-1999

Food for thoughts…

#FashionCrush: Lipsy Spring/Summer 14 Collection Launch

Lipsy recently hosted a fabulous event to showcase their Spring/Summer 14 Collection at the gorgeous JW Marriot Marquis in Dubai. With my fashion blogger cap on, I attended alongside fellow bloggers and media outlets alike.

Now, I’ve know of Lipsy for a while and have walked past the store in Ibn Battuta Mall many many times! Somehow however, I never actually went inside the store. Looking at what’s in the windows I always felt the brand just wasn’t for me (too short, too ‘girly’, too ‘sparkly’…).

Imagine my surprise when I walked in to find rows of beautifully designed pieces, including figure-hugging dresses, trendy jackets, pencil skirts (I LOVE pencil skirts) and uber cool accessories! Next season will see lots of super feminine florals, monochrome and casual chic outfits.

I even liked the Kardashian Kollection which the K-Sisters designed exclusively for Lipsy! Each one of them created a capsule collection and of course, I was drawn to Kim’s style which is closest to mine….

The Collection was inspired by a variety of key concepts including The West Coast, Modern American Sportswear and a key, continuing theme, A California Dream. Here is the low-down:

THE WEST COAST  captures our spirit this season. California’s effortless blend of work, play and daily life is echoed in a merge of texture, material and tone. Grounding it all is a group of fresh, Sonoran desert neutrals.

LAID BACK is her spring mantra—the comfort, and the easy chic, of a true-life story. Very California. Our new luxe, peached-wash chinos are meant to be rolled-up with a relaxed attitude. Borrowed from the boys and softened by the girls, fabrics like linen and layered 3D knits are all key. Covetable pieces kick off with the Heritage Jacket, the Silk Camp Shirt and a dramatic Wide Leg Denim Trouser. The palette ranges from soft white to cantaloupe to cognac accessories. Among them, the Wristlet Clutch, Slender Belts and the return of the Cross-body Bag.

HIS TAKE leans toward easy California style with utility influences. Stone double face denim, rolled at the cuff, reveals the khaki under-color. Washed 2-ply signature cotton chinos, now in our slimmest Aiden fit, pair effortlessly with summer-weight sweaters and washed linen shirts. Even his tailoring kicks back with a cool Linen Trouser—non-chalant and elegant at the same time.

TEXTURE comes in layers this spring, polished without getting fussy. For instance, a slubby linen shirt chills-out his stretch cotton suit. Blocked materials add weightless dimension. For her, that means pique and slub cotton combined with unexpected leather details—all in one great Zip Front Jacket. She’ll wear it morning, noon and night.

MODERN AMERICAN SPORTSWEAR accents are woven through out. White Perforated Leather makes a great Handbag for her, and an even more memorable Dress. A crisp Poplin Shirt Dress in navy pairs perfectly with a Structured Zip Up Sweater. Silk, as in a Pocketed Shirt-Blouse, and a WhiteFit-n-Flare Skirt play well together. Sporting Graphics give an eye-catching element to her must-have Wide Leg Framed Pants and Color Block Bags. His updated classics center on an outerwear story with a twist, including a Knit Peacoat in an innovative yarn and the Perfect Trench with a new fit and detail. Looks like we’ll all be California dreaming…And here some of my favourite pieces!

#FashionCrush: Koton SS14 Collection

I can pretty much describe Koton Spring/Summer 14 Collection in one single word. DOPE!

This edition will see a lot of Monochrome (suits everyone!), classy stripes & sharp prints, a more ‘Riviera’ type-collection with lots of blue, white and nudes embellished by rope detailing and anchors.

You’ll also find a drop of denim (thank God I can still wear my fave denim shirt for the next 2 seasons!) but also some safari & tribal prints to bring that wild fashionista in you out!

Add a bit of pastels, a pop of colour and some girly florals here & there and you have the most stylish, fresh & cool summer fashion

Check out some of my favourite pieces from the collection:

I can’t wait for pay day to come (another 5 loooong days) to hit my local Koton store! Will be sure to film a little ‘haul’ video 😉
