The future is looking bright

Set in the garden of a beautiful villa in Florence seemed like the idyllic setting for the first catwalk show for Menswear Spring 2011 by Jil Sander. Raf Simon's - in his fifth anniversary designing for Jil Sander menswear - mentioned that the collection was appropriately inspired by nature.
Raf's garden party provided an epic sunset for guests as they arrived at the villa, with quoting "You can't compete with those effects", I'd have to agree.

Here's a peak at the collection that can only be described as a profusion of color.

Enjoy! xoxo

The Alessandra Ambrosio Bo.Bo Winter 2010 Campaign was shot by photographer Fabio Bartelt and executed to perfection by the Victoria’s Secret angel Alessandra Ambrosio. 
The Brazlian stunner shines in the brand’s rocker chic attire.

The campaign showcases tousled hair, passionate gazes and smoldering hotness.... and although I know it is for Bo Bo's winter campaign I think the styling for this shoot is the epitome of the perfect festival look if you ask me, especially if you could just cut the heels off those gorgeous thigh high boots - P-e-r-f-e-c-t-i-o-n!!!

One of the hottest models of the moment Cornelia Tat for Romanian Harper's Bazaar May 2010 

Photographer: Sylvie Malfray 
Stylist: Andrei Iovu

Pretty As A Picture

I love the fusion of the lace trimmings, pretty light pastel colours and floating chiffon.... the epitome of Victorian elegance upon which the shoot was based.
This editorial spread was shot by photographer Sylvie Malfray and the looks were styled by Andrei Iovu, a combination that produces both a romantic shoot with a hint of naughty.
I'm sure you will agree that Cornelia Tat looks absolutely stunning.
This spread in the Harper’s Bazaar Romania May 2010 issue is definitely one to check out.

Sunday morning lie-ins, rays of sunshine, snuggling up in new crisp sheets, stars, balloons, the feeling of sunshine on your skin, kissing, butterflies (of the tummy kind), friends, lots of twinkling lights, dressing up, new shoes, finishing something that's still unfinished, a great vintage find, beautiful fabrics, being inspired by something/someone when least expected, sunsets, weekends away, taking photos, layers upon layers of tulle, long warm summer evenings, compliments... giving & receiving, a tidy bedroom, celebrating the successes of your friends & family & seeing them happy, coffee & croissants in the morning, lace, beaches, blue skies, dreaming, white fluffy clouds, listening to music, the McDreamy's of the world, letting go, holidays, beautiful imagery, chocolate & laughing ALOT....

I know someday you'll have a beautiful life, I know you'll be the sun... in somebody else's sky.

Hit the surf and clubs in style this summer with one of my favourite collaborations of the season offering both functional and glam pieces - all of which I love.
The collection - released in spring - consists of brilliant flashes of fluoro pop against pastel coloured wetsuits, swimsuits and surf-inspired clothing such as neoprene body-con pieces like the gorgeous neoprene pencil skirt, accessories, ballet flats, oversized double-knit hoodie and leather sandals with giant silk tassels.  

Perfect for embracing your inner surf chick!
Now to the beach....
