Jil & Raf

It’s not unusual for a collection to send me into a dizzying frenzy – and I mean, heart-racing, sweaty palms frenzy. But Jil Sander’s Spring Ready to Wear collection – which is quite possibly the collection of the season, has sent me to new heights. As I sit here in my very wintery London abode, I have to physically stop myself from ditching all the black, grey & caramel hues that are currently taking over my wardrobe, and dive head first into some hyper-modern fluorescent.

Having lived in Raf Simons minimalistic heaven for the past several seasons, I (along with most fashion junkies) have been going Lady Gaga over the daringly overblown shapes in a palette of tangerine and fairy floss pink. I’m absolutely captivated by the simplicity of the T-shirt-and-ball-gown combo and major skirts teamed with minor shirts. I for one definitely cannot wait to sink my teeth into this revolutionary techno-couture.

Boogie Wonderland

So, it's safe to say that I'm more than a little bit excited about SS11. Not only because I'm officially over winter and would give my right arm to know what 30 degrees feels like again but because we’re all about to get a little funky!!!

That’s right, my favourite era - the Seventies, has been given the all important nod this season with a fresh, modern and less literal take on the decade.

No doubt I will be fully embracing my inner flower power with the likes of a high-waisted, rust coloured A-line skirt worn with a sleeveless blouse and a low slung shoulder bag. And if I’m feeling a little crazy, I’ll add a silk headscarf tied around my neck. Although, maxi length skirts, tassels, crochet & macramé, stacked platforms and wide leg jeans will also be creeping their way into my wardrobe.

The spirit of the Seventies was well and truly alive and kicking on the Spring/Summer runways - after all, isn’t spring nature’s way of saying “Let’s Party.”

Having been a closet devotee of the fashion blog world for quite sometime now, I've decided that it's finally time for me to take the plunge. 

I'm nervous and excited and I can definitely feel some butterfly action but I hope you enjoy all the fashion love that is to come.
