Trending: Burgundy Over-the-Knee Boots


Over-the-knee boots have become a fashion mainstay and this F/W 2016 season, they look amazing in burgundy. Most designers are going for suede whereas Roksanda‘s take is all about the season’s ultimate trend material: velvet.

The Sylvie Bag


There is a new It-bag waiting for all fashion lovers: GUCCI‘s SYLVIE BAG. Featuring a number of the house’s iconic elements, this new amazing style makes use of the well-known GUCCI iconweb stripe and combines this with a distinctive ornamental chain with a spring-buckle closure, a detail that lends the style a bourgeois confidence.

The house web motif appears as a woollen insert underneath the chain detail – the two decorative elements, hard and soft, combining to create a characterful signature for this neat, structured handbag.

_GUC0651Gucci S/S 2016

The shoulder strap is in grosgrain and also features the house web design, and metallic details on its tips. However, the web colour-combination on this grosgrain strap is always different to that on the bag’s web insert, a playful mismatch that contributes to the SYLVIE’s eccentric appeal. For those occasions when a more subdued look is appropriate, each bag also comes with an alternative, matching shoulder strap in plain leather.


• Materials: calf leather, crocodile.
• Colours: green, red, white, black, blue.
• Lining: suede.
• Finish: light gold.
• Inside: zippered pocket, and compartments for mobile phones.

I love the new SYLVIE BAG but will definitely wait for the Pre-fall 2016 version in pink. Isn’t that one adorable?

A Love Letter to Italy


A love letter to Italy, Dolce & Gabbana’s S/S 2016 runway show was styled by Tabitha Simmons. The collection evokes the glories of Italy through the eyes of tourists, highlighting the country’s most famous landmarks—Venice’s gondolas, the Leaning Tower of Pisa, and Michelangelo’s David—came decadently embroidered and beaded atop trademark fluted shifts and lace separates.


The collection’s colorful brushstroke dressesicon were inspired by the work of Italian artist Lucio Fontana, seen on everything from curve hugging sheaths to generously flared ’50s dresses.

In step with the sightseeing theme, this season’s new Dolce Box was an actual camera (bag). Additionally, the Adelina bag makes its debut. The top handle silhouette that references the1950s is offered in raffia, tweed, and luxurious crocodile. The country’s most iconic landmarks trickled down to the accessories.


There were slippers shaped like gondolas from Venice, handpainted heels that nodded to the ceramics found in Naples, and shopper totes emblazoned with postcard prints in the same tune as the finale dresses. Back again are the most extravagant headphones in four styles…now that’s amore!



To work on this Dolce and Gabbana show was so much funI loved how Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana celebrated the idea of stars such as Elizabeth Taylor and Audrey Hepburn on holiday in Italy. The energy around the show was infectious, the models were so excited to take selfies backstage and on the catwalk (like any respectable tourist would do!) and then project them around the world. It goes without saying, but the clothes and accessories were brilliant, I have my eye on the long chiffon dress with a humming bird and flower print.” Tabitha Simmons, stylist.
