I love the arrival of Autumn/Winter fashion week because the fall season has always been my favourite! All those lovely coats, the furs, hats and jumpers – they are just all so warm and inviting! Though on the whole I would say the collections lack the vitality of Spring/Summer collections , understandably. But then the A/W  looks replace florals and lace with metallics and sparkles! Who are you looking forward to seeing? I always love Dolce & Gabbana , Marc Jacobs and Celine collections, so lets hope this season is no different!

Armenta Jewellery

November 25, 2013

I recently discovered Armenta jewellery on Avenue 32 and was instantly struck by such a majestic and opulent collection. It reminded me instantly of the Dolce & Gabbana Autumn/Winter 2013 show as shown below, with the use of colours and shapes.

“Armenta jewellery is hand-crafted from unique gemstones and precious metals and this
New World collection takes inspiration from the journals of Christopher Columbus” which honours the “noble heritage of Spanish culture and literature in the form of objects of fascination to last for centuries”. Emily Armenta who founded the brand and whose career began while studying a MBA at Rice, describes how “many of the pieces are inspired by famous works of art found throughout Spain, such as poetry, paintings, architecture, and sculptures. Certain pieces are physical representations of images found in works of art, which is to pay homage to the artist’s message of inspiration.”

These are definitely investment pieces considering the hefty price tag! I would say save them for special occasions and wear with your most beautiful outfits but…what’s wrong with a bit of decadence every day?

D&G

July 3, 2012

I featured the behind the scenes shots from this collection because I just cannot get enough of it! The foulard prints (Hermes/scarf print, usually silk material) are all just as stunning as the next! Though they haven’t been replicated as much as I thought they would be for the high street. If you are weary of such a print, I think this look is a good starting point – the trousers are not too loud like the dresses.
