When you think of Coach, you tend to think of an endless sea of monogrammed C’s in all sorts of colours and styles. Personally I never thought of Coach beyond its leathergoods – that was – until Stuart Vevers took over as the executive creative director and breathed new life into the classic brand.

Lanvin Look 1 / Look 2 / Look 3 / Look 4 / Look 5
Paris Fashion Week has begun, and I’m wishing more than ever I was there. I’ve only been to Paris once, and honestly, I don’t feel like I did it right. It was essentially a 48 hour blitzkrieg of my friends and I trying to see as much as we could, and spending at least 12 hours a day on our feet (I was foolish and wore gladiator sandals that provided ZERO support to my flat-footed soles and my hooves have never quite healed), running around the metro from place to place. We weren’t able to embrace the laissez-faire attitude, sit with baguettes and wine, and just people watch. Since leaving, I’ve known that one day I MUST go back and see Paris properly.
The Paris collections thus far have been very beautiful, very eclectic, and very chic. For now I’ll just discuss a few that caught my eye.

Meadham Kirchhoff Look 1 / Look 2 / Look 3 / Look 4 / Look 5
Ahhhhh a sweet vacation from school, sadly this means I have had my MacBook closed for the past 3 days…but upon starting it up and rushing to style.com to see the latest offerings from London Fashion Week, I realized I had been greatly missing out on a feast for the eyes. All through New York Fashion Week I just kept thinking “IS IT TIME FOR PARIS YET?!” and kind of forgot to anticipate London’s week…what a foolish lack of thought. Thus far London Fashion Week has shown amazing and truly unique collections that have me thinking outside of my typical monochromatic-minimalist comfort zone. Continue reading

Marc Jacobs Look 1 / Look 2 / Look 3 / Look 4 / Look 5 / Look 6 / Look 7
Not that I’ve ever actually been to fashion week, but from what I hear, the Marc Jacobs show is one that everyone most looks forward to. I can understand why. The sets of his shows are elaborate and take the viewer to another world, while the clothes themselves are always beautiful and interesting. I just finished watching the live stream of his Fall 2014 collection, and I feel as though I’ve been hypnotized. Continue reading
Dion Lee Look 1/Look 2/Look 3
New York Fashion Week is in full force, which means my dream expansion of my wardrobe is very carefully being planned as well. February 6th showcased some unbelievable apparel that I would die to get my hands on.
The first show that I really loved was Australian, Dion Lee’s. The girl sporting these minimalist duds is one cool chick. The subdued hues and all black everything looks were my favourite. Also the range of fabrications is something to marvel at. I would be more than happy to cuddle up in the super soft knits that look beyond cozy, but still very chic. The halter dresses and tops featuring a criss-crossed lattice of snakeskin were the perfect ratio of cool sophistication. One of my top looks from the collection was the all black leather pant ensemble finished off with a beau chapeau. It brought to mind an image of the independent Mattie Ross from True Grit, but instead of running around Texas, she’s in the Australian outback looking oh-so-stylish. Continue reading
