Peacocks: Chanel Catwalk Dupe

Personally, I feel that Peacocks can often be a little hit and miss with their collections, but recently I spotted one serious catwalk dupe (here) that I just had to tell you about, and I think you’ll be just as pleasantly surprised as I was…

chaneldupe

Yep, that’s right it is just like that amazing print we saw at Chanel for SS14, and I am sooo excited to find a dupe! Not only is this the first copy of the print I’ve come across on the high street, but the items are so decently priced (£8 and £12), that I’m not sure I can resist (although I do have to wait it out until pay day). I just wish the colours were a little brighter, and I’m hoping they’ll bring in dresses and skirts in this print, too!

The retailer has also created dupes of the brush stroke print seen at Celine (here), as well as the pastel lace skirts and dresses seen at Burberry (here and here), and although they are nice enough, I would have liked more from these dupes (I’m not fond of the length of the Celine dupe tee, and I would have liked to have seen the Burberry dupe transformed into co-ords, but maybe that’s just me?)

Spotted: The Floor Length Kimono

I absolutely loved the black, full length Kimono worn by Kendall Jenner at Coachella-it’s bought a whole new edge to what I’ll be wearing this Spring/Summer.. how great is it to have a light cover up that still adds a touch of glam to a look?

I’ve found a few great variations, so here are some for you guys to choose from.. Enjoy!

There is definitely some serious tropical summer vibes from this one! (River Island- £60).
My absolute favorite of them all- just waiting for payday to buy this beauty (Pretty Little Thing £25).

Not quite full length, but this is perfect for those who want a bit of a shorter Kimono style, and the print is gorgeous! (ASOS £32)
Ark Black Kymm Floral Long Kimono main image
This sheer black, almost floor length Kimono is bought to life through pretty floral detailing! (Ark £19.99)

(And as a side note, I found it quite annoying that River Island didn’t show the Kimonos on a model.. I assumed ‘long line’ meant around about knee length or longer, but there is no way of knowing for sure until you order it..but nevertheless they are great designs and colours, so its not all bad 😀 )

Coachella 2014: A few favourite looks

 

Love the mesh detailing and cool blue tones in this look!
Love how cool and casual this look is!
A pretty twist on the floral headpieces usually seen at festivals!
Kendall Jenner looked amazing in this all black outfit- I especially love the long, lace Kimono!
I love the off the shoulder detail- it looks so feminine with the soft crochet and neutral tones!

Obviously none of these pictures are my own (boo, I wasn’t lucky enough to attend) and all have come from various websites 🙂

Faves of MBFWA

By Johnny

     From ice cream shades to vibrant hues I absolutely loved the use of color in this collection, which showcased abstract shapes, block color and candy stripes. We also saw metallic details and sequins, which made for a glamorous edge.

    With clean silhouettes and a heavy focus upon metallics and soft, luxe leather we saw a much more masculine vibe from this collection. Sports luxe was a strong theme (think structured leather crops, brogues and tennis style dresses), but my favorite part of the collection has to be the clean cut metallic coats that hung over the shoulders of the models.

Aurelio Costarella

    From waist cinching belts, feathers and heavy embellishment this collection showcased pretty, feminine and glamorous pieces, from sheer gowns to brightly colored mini dresses and playsuits. Not only this, but the collection showed us that we can in fact be ‘matchy matchy’ from head to toe and it will look good (something I’ve always been a bit dubious about).

Gail Sorronda at Australia Fashion Week: Mermaids Exist

Australian designer Gail Sorronda kicked off the second day of Australian Fashion Week with a collection, aptly named ‘Mermaids Exist’, that boasted collaborations with both Disney and Queensland Ballet for a Little Mermaid inspired collection. Unlike other ‘Under the Sea’ inspired collections ( see Kenzo, for example) there was a softer approach at this show-with light tulle and sheer materials, we saw elegance and femininity. This isn’t to say that there weren’t lots of obvious hints towards The Little Mermaid though, because we were given skirt shapes that gave the illusion of fishtails, glistening sequin detailing for a glamorous hint towards scales and an even bigger hint was the cartoon print of Ariel, Sebastian and lots of other sea life across the blank canvas of an all white outfit . Not only did we see light, neutral creams and whites, but Sorronda cleverly incorporated lobster red hues and a bright turquoises that were all reminiscent of The Little Mermaid story we know and love! Even accessories were on point, from jewellery that resembled coral, sea weed and driftwood, to structured crown detailing!

I definitely ❤ this collection-who knew mixing Disney and Fashion could come off so well?

Art Attack!

From Celine’s abstract brush strokes, a rainbow palette at Chanel and colourful female portraits adorning handbags and dresses at Prada, there is no doubt about it that art inspired pieces are set to be a huge trend this Spring. The issue with such statement, artistic pieces is that it makes it difficult for the high street to imitate effectively-they might be a much cheaper option, but its not the same high quality and innovative designs as those Prada handbags. At those designer prices, though, I think I’ll have no choice but to admire them from a distance, whilst keeping my eyes well peeled for high quality dupes. The key thing to remember when going high street for this trend is to ensure you buy items that at least look high quality, because wearing artistic designs, like those on the runway, is all about luxury.
