London Menswear: Favourite Collections

Coach

By combining dark greens and deep berry tones with more neutral creams and rich browns, the colour pallete at Coach made this collection an instant winner for me.

       

Hardy Amies

Offering a mixed bag of gorgeously tailored suits, cosy cashmere coats and warm accessories in an array of colours, from dark greys and navy blues to pops of bright yellows and cobalt blue, this collection (as usual) did not disappoint.

      

Tom Ford

This campaign is simply stunning and is mainly why I’m so sold on this as one of my favourites, not forgetting the actual collection, of course.

     

Pringle of Scotland

A chunky knit layered on top of more chunky knit is a definite winner for me, especially when combined with more structured outerwear.

The Golden Globes: Best Dressed

lesliemann
Yellow made a big appearance at The Golden Globes- I love how Leslie Mann kept a simple silhouette with this Yellow dress by Kaufman Franco, but added a fun pop of emerald green in her accessories.
amy adams
I love the simplicity of this Versace gown, and the colour perfectly compliments Amy’s skin tone!
joannefrogatt
Joanne Froggatt wore a gorgeous gown by Marchesa- I love the pretty and delicate flora detailing.
katebeckinsale
Here, Kate Beckinsale wears Elie Saab- one of my all time favourite designers! With the perfect amount of glamour and simplicity, this is definitely a dress I would probably gravitate to if I was ever invited to such a huge event (I’ll keep dreaming until then..)
lupita
I love florals- and this is as floral as it gets! With floral applique layering and romantic purple tones, Lupita has done it again in the fashion stakes, this time wearing Giambattista Valli.
reese
Reese Witherspoon wowed in a simple, but glamorous dress by Calvin Klein.

Sexy, smudged lips at Vivienne Westwood

Okay, so Vivienne Westwood doesn’t always bring us the most wearable looks, but she certainly finds new ways to encapsulate the Vivienne Westwood woman every season.

This time we saw smudged red lips and flushed cheeks- a subtle hint that there is perhaps a more mischievous side to the Vivienne Westwood woman, a woman who dresses in such smart, luxuriously tailored attire, but is not quite as well behaved as what first meets the eye.

I love the sexy, mysterious quality that such a simple make up look has created, and although smudging lipstick around the outside of your lips may not be a good idea in reality, I am very tempted to try and recreate the look in a more wearable way.

Gosh Long Lasting Lip Marker Red 2
Instead of perfectly appl ying red lipstick in a way that adds a bold pop of colour to the lips, why not try using a lip stain or pen instead. I use the Gosh Long Lasting Lip Marker in Red (Cruelty free and the most long lasting lip product I’ve ever owned) making sure to smudge across the lips with your fingertips straight away before it has time to stain. For extra smudge and dimension I may even blend a touch of the Gosh Long Lasting Lip Marker in Berry Red in the centre of the lips.
