Versace Spring/Summer 2015 Ready-To-Wear
Calm and understated, loose fitting dresses and surprisingly practical elements. Still flamboyant enough, yet very down to earth - this is next summer's Versace.
I think this collection may just be aimed at a younger audience, like myself. Seriously, I've always admired the Versace collections but never really saw myself wearing the majority of it... until now. This collection is very wearable, and is almost very day-to-day dressing, a cool way to look at Versace.
And the handbags? Big enough to fit my laptop, features exterior pockets for my phone(s), pens, etc. Genius. xx

Prada Spring/Summer 2015 Ready-To-Wear
GEMMA WARD OPENED THE SHOW! Gemma Ward, ladies and gentlemen!
The comeback we've waited forever for just happened. :-)
This collection by itself is incredible, as usual, Muicca did her thing which is just naturally so so so right. The collection is a special ode to craftsmanship, with so many vintage inspired pieces mixed with Muicca's very modern touch. This collection here is basically telling me: if it's too put together, it just isn't right. Prada now is all about taking the old but good pieces from your closet out for a spin, along side your brand new accessories. xx

1. MISSONI peacock flair and fit dress
2. ANCIENT GREEK SANDALS alcyone sandals
3. ABS by Allen Schwartz spike chain necklace
4. DOLCE&GABBANA floral embroidered 'miss sicily' bag
5. ILLESTEVA milan II sunnies
6. FENDI "fur freak" charm
7. GIORGIO ARMANI nail polish 702
8. GIORGIO ARMANI lipstick d'armani
Fashion week is at it's perfect half way point - with London and New York behind us, let's now venture into the deep, chic world of Milan fashion. And we mustn't forget to wear our Missoni summer dress; I feel like Greek sandals are still acceptable, with our Dolce bags and those adorbz Fendi accessories. Bring on the best of Italian fashion, in full force. (Remember to pair all with glossy, long beach waves and an orange lip).
I predict my highlights to be Missoni (as usual), the Dolce&Gabbana finale (duh), MSGM (the divine dresses and skirts), and the new Fendi accessories. What are your thoughts coming into Milan? xx

Erdem Spring/Summer 2015 Ready-To-Wear
London is proving to be all about the beautiful details mother nature gives us.
It's the inspiration that comes from taking a walk, or swim (see also Mary Katrantzou). I love this.
This collection is so beautifully vibrant but dark and tropical. Tropical in a very chic way, the complete opposite of the looks you'll see walking Miami Beach in the winter (obvs). The models are mother nature's ladies in waiting, complete with the most luxurious frocks and gowns, cut out so strategically while blending in to the eerie and stunning backdrop.
And the set is so.... Just as @THELOVEMAGAZINE puts it "Just like being in the rainforest caffe". Again though, in a good way. xx

Mary Katrantzou Spring/Summer 2015 Ready-To-Wear
I'd give anything to live inside Mary's head, sometimes. This collection took a dive into the deep, dark ocean and came back filled with light and beauty. The looks are all so rich, embroidered and beaded in the most beautiful ways. This collection further proves that Mary isn't simply a print designer, that her looks are so much more. xx
