Many of my readers have been asking me about a business look with a certain twist. As one of the big summer trends is incorporating lingerie in your daily wardrobe, I exchanged the stereotype white shirt into a feminine lace top which looks sophisticated and elegant under a blazer. A great selection of such camisoles can be found at ZIMMERLI. The one I am wearing in this post has some small pieces of art hidden within the airy embellished ribs. The light and breathable fabric is soft as silk and pliant as cashmere.
My look: Tuxedo jacket by Stella McCartney, lace top by Zimmerli, cropped wool-crepe pants by Alexander McQueen, Croco Tail sunglasses by Fendi, Christy leather point-toe flats by Aquazzura, tote bag by Karl Lagerfeld, pearl earrings by Chanel, diamond ring by Vainard Fine Jewellery and Tonda 1950 Clarity watch by Parmigiani Fleurier.

Prada’s Double Bag, a practical and surprisingly lightweight tote, that features an internal divider with a flap pocket to hold valuables, complemented with buttons on each side and a metal name plaque, is a timeless purchase that you will keep for many seasons to come.
This season it presents itself in a new array of spring colors which will hit the stores in August in Central Europe. I adore those vibrant hues and wouldn’t resist the raspberry one.

One year ago, 3.1 Phillip Lim launched the PASHLI bag which has become one of the most desirable objects for fashionistas around the globe. This sleek leather satchel is big enough to fit all of your everyday essentials, much like the Céline Boston or Trapeze bag that has become a staple in editors’ wardrobes—but with a slightly more feasible price tag.
I love the functional zip pockets and the under the radar branding – just the perfect balance between classic and contemporary.
For this fall, rich spice tones make up the prevailing colour palette for fall, so upgrade your current carryall to 3.1 Phillip Lim’s burgundy ‘Pashli’ tote. Slide the top handles into the crook of your arm and let this piece complement hushed prints and muted shades. Or opt for a vibrant colour such as pink or fuchsia. The black version will keep your look fashion-forward no matter how busy the day is. 3.1 Phillip Lim bags are available at Net-à-porter, Monnier Frères, Matches and Farfetch among others.
At Saks Fifth Avenue, you can pre-order the upcoming Resort 2013 Pashli totes now.
“The Pashli is cool, easy and chic,” Phillip Lim told Vogue. “The perfect bag for the Phillip Lim girl.” Why is it that as soon as something sells out it becomes even more desirable?
