Ah,yes i'm still obsessing over the Nike Blazers. I just love the simple, classic style and the range of colours and materials that are available. Fact.. the blazer, originally released in 1972 was Nike's first venture into basketball footwear. I'm still on the hunt for a pair of the suede vintage Nike Blazers in a small size, as my feet are tiny, however i stumbled across these, which are constructed of premium tumbled leathers and were set to release exclusively at size on Friday. With only 500 pairs available i think my chances of owning a pair in size 4 are pretty slim..

KNIT.

Knits are the perfect transitional layering piece and this Autumn Alexander Wang hits the spot. He is a one man empire and this season he veers towards a neo grunge aesthetic. Metallic silk skirts and sheer shirts beautifully teamed with his signature loose knit jumpers.














"The Alexander Wang woman is someone who embraces individuality. She wears my clothes exactly as she wants. There are no rules"

Basic chunky knits paired with this seasons favourite cut, the pencil skirt teamed with opulent oversized jewellery and killer ankle boots are the perfect recipe for that chic autumn look. For a more practical outfit, opt for tight leather jeans or black wet look leggings.

Isabel Marant A/W 11 collection

Isabel Marant's collection this fall is breathtaking, i obsess over her work. The woman never fails to disappoint. Grey wool, oversized ponchos, chunky knits, fringed leather boots and skin tight jeans. For this season there is nothing better. The collections by many designers from Paris Fashion week prove this season knits are back as statement pieces for A/W 11. I couldnt be happier. Personally i would ususally opt for the crocheted knits as seen in Christopher Kanes collection, however mohair is proving to be a winner for me this year. Natalia Vodionova on the Givenchy catwalk at Paris fashion week looked insanely beautiful in a cropped yellow mohair jumper.

OVERDOSE










sugar and spikes, wild child, planetblue

Statement jewellery is a must in any season, you can never have or wear too much. I feel for me however, that it has become an addiction. It is a drug i want more and more of.. i am becoming extremely susceptible to it. 'Tomtom' jewellery is so exquisitie, Elena Coleman Howell launched tomtom jewellery in 2009, and as a former architect she applies a modern and graphical design to each stylised collection. I lust over her work.
