Let it Snow ! MYKITA & MONCLER AW 2012/13

The folks at MYKITA have continued their match made in heaven with MONCLER for AW 2012/13....

It began with an homage to mountains and all those who love to ski them and has evolved into a new collection : LIONEL ...an inspiration drawn from 1950s alpine glacier goggles.

It is an edgy,modern collection with all the extras that MYKITA are famous for...and above all,they offer unmitigated protection against the sun's harmful rays. 

To be added to the Christmas gift list asap.....

Many thanks to the MYKITA team.

A Touch of Classy

Brrrrrr....winter is truly here and the coats have come out.
This one caught my eye: ultra feminine, this coat gives good "hourglass" and is beautifully tailored: 
Coat by Stella McCartney £3,740 
The hat is by Alberta Ferretti £393....the look is minimalist chic and I love it.

Now for some classy fun: silk top(£1,000) and wool trousers(£783) are both by Celine. I know...I did say as the adage goes "No white after labour day"...but frankly white looks fabulous in winter (NOT SHOES!!) paired with tawny skin ,a chunky sweater and a navy  pea coat....Fabulous....Fun...my kind of wardrobe.

Moving on to the Amish like skull cap on her head...for the shoot, it is fabulous and fun. In reality it is freakish and funny and at the almighty sum of £735.... Marios Schwab must be having a laugh.
...but is it at us, or with us.....???

More fashion observations soon...

A Prickly Pair ....

Now that's more like it ...Kurt Geiger!

These stiletto booties have all this season's required "accoutrement's":a heel that is thin and high,counter balanced by the white platform with a hint of a blue streak(didn't come out in scan! grrrr...) and of course....the silver spikes,de rigueur since Christian Louboutin took to adorning his hightop sneakers and velvet slippers.
Obviously since...everyone has dipped a toe in those waters:
"Imitation is the highest form of flattery..." and all that jazz.

Sexy in your face and tongue in cheek chic...you have to have fun with fashion. Take it too seriously and it will take you over and turn you into :
a) a slave to fashion
b) a monster.
