Gucci & Its Ever-Growing Relevance in 2017

If I could crown a fashion house for being able to embrace change, whilst still remaining relevant and true to itself, then I would happily crown Gucci as the winner. It’s increasingly become hard it seems, to take over a brand, revamp its image and receive positive appraisal. Or at least the last few years say so as many Creative Directors fail to stay longer than 3 years as sales and show response have been nothing short of mediocre. I won’t be naming any names in that category but I will say that Gucci have been going anywhere but down. Sure. The Gucci woman today is different to previous generations but somehow it just works. Sexy woman becomes eclectic geek chic because…why can’t a sexy woman be smart anyways? And dress well? Here, I’m dissecting the brand’s continuing success if you will – in snapshots of what makes Gucci so talked about and coveted, even amongst the youth; especially amongst the youth. The ‘GG’ Logo Makes For A Great Design If there is something to own by Gucci, then it is the belt. …

Tumblr Taught Me: All The Ways to Wear a Sweater

I love a good sweater, do you? Okay, that wasn’t a very bright question because I can’t imagine anyone who doesn’t love a good sweater! The only time you might not like one is if it’s not a good sweater at all (very dependent on fit and feel for me) or if you’re not quite wearing it right and making the most of it! I am a large hoarder of pretty things. On the internet. (See what I did there? Albeit, in real life I hoard what I can because…limitations.) And my recent platform for that is Tumblr. (Yes, I’m very late to the game.) These are just a snippet of pins that I’ve reblogged on my Tumblr over time that I think are full of sweater-envy and style-envy. Are you ready? Broken is Beautiful Your sweater has a large hole in it? Don’t throw it away just yet! I know. It’s disheartening when your favourite piece of knitwear gets caught on a piece of jewellery or some other device and gets ruined. But it’s still not a …

#MFW S/S17 Stripe This Way, Stripe That Way | Day 3+4

To the land of materials, Where artisans exist and play, allowing the rawness of feelings to transpire. Welcome to Milan Fashion Week! Marco de Vincenzo An unknown name in my dictionary. Fringing is not something I associate with too much either as I feel when it’s not made to its effect, it can look unnecessary however Vincenzo has made it a fluent theme! It was refreshing to see the fringing repeated on a diagonal which made all the difference. The use of contrast particularly lifted the colour palette and collection as a whole. There was also a miniature version of the fringing done in contrasting colours which was interesting and added a new ounce of texture that I had not encountered before. This designer is one to watch! Versace After expressing how she’s finally come into her own last season, Donatella Versace has been on a new high ever since. The Versace woman has always been confident, sexy – but the signature has much developed since Donatella took over from her beloved brother Gianni. Think tailored …

How to Travel Comfortably in Style

Traveling: (my definition) – Going from place to place and generally being outdoors and on-foot most of the time, which calls for long days out (12 hours+) in unfamiliar settings away from home. Let’s be real: There is no other place quite like home when it comes to being comfortable. But as it happens, you cannot carry everything with you. So what exactly do you pack that’s practical, without eliminating your style? I have traveled many times, and learned from my mistakes growing up. Now as a fully-grown adult, I still make some mistakes, but I like to think that I have improved immensely, and can get from A to B without looking too crazy when miles away from home. This is my fool-proof guide to comfort in style. Appropriate Footwear But who is going to look at your feet/footwear right? Possibly no one. Possibly not many people. Possibly everyone if you choose the right footwear…or the wrong footwear. The difference being only you will feel what’s on your feet, and if it’s not right, blisters will take over …
