This Is a Stick Up!

Anya Hindmarch SS15 Fashion Week Fixation

London Fashion Week S/S 2015 finished yesterday and I have a gazillion things to show you! One thing that really has caught my eye are those super-playful stickers from Anya Hindmarch‘s crazy runway show that got everyone talking. It is such a fun way to reboot your accessories.

Anya Hindmarch Bag with stickers

Created in collaboration with Charlotte Stockdale of Chaos Fashion, you can stick it to your work diary for a playful bit of visual motivation, but please note, those stickers are designed to adhere to surfaces permanently so once applied they cannot be removed.

For the runway finale, Anya Hindmarch let the models waltz in life-size neon teacups onto the set while dancers clad in ultraviolet skeleton bodysuits performed a “Thriller”-style dance.

Great news is that you can shop the stickers off the next season’s runway, exclusively at NET-A-PORTER.COMicon.

Must-Have F/W 2014: Arm Candy

Fun It-Bag-FW2014

Add a pop of color and excitement to your evening looks with those fun clutch bags. Fall’s juiciest arm candies are bright and ladylike. Either you go for Anya Hindmarch‘s bold graphics of household brands (1 and 4) or choose Charlotte Olympia‘s playful peach clutch (2) that is covered in suede perfectly mimicking the fuzzy texture of the fruit. I personally adore REDValentino‘s combination of fairy tales and fashion (6). All interiors offer enough space for your party essentials.
