Roksanda’s Legoland

Roksanda's legoland

I am a grown-up Roksanda Ilincic fan as you know and her pre-fall 2012 collection is one of my favourites for the next season. Inspired by her eighteen month-old daughter’s Legos, the uber-cute designs feature drop-waist dresses, puff skirts, Mondrian-like colour blocking and divine colour combinations.

You can shop a great selection at net-à iconand The cute Suzu wool-blend crepe dress iconto the left above has just found its way to me.

This month, the Serbian designer has launched her debut line for two to eight year olds, entitled Blossom Childrenswear. The range features mini-me clothes with instantly recognisable aspects from Roksanda’s womenswear designs and was inspired by the birth of Roksanda’s first child Efimia, back in 2010, who is perhaps unsurprinsgly, modelling the debut collection.

Roksanda puts an emphasis on material “to ensure the collection comprises of soft textures and loose, unrestrictive shapes”. This happens when a mother designs. She knows how to keep the little ones comfortable without giving up on style. The line is available at Liberty and on I am loving it!

More Neon

Most Wanted Neon

With this cold weather outside, I just can’t get enough of spring’s vibrant bold colours. I am absolutely crazy for this neon lace-sleeve wool-blend crepe dress iconby Christopher Kane. It is such a great investment piece that you could wear for many different occasions.

Work the neon trend by adding the studded neon pink leather pumps iconby McQ Alexander McQueen and the contrast leather-trimmed neoprene clutch iconby Pierre Hardy. This is colour blocking par excellence.

Most Wanted

You can achieve a completely new look just by changing the accessories. Here are some ideas how to combine the gorgeous dress:

Frayed tweed shoulder bag iconby Miu Miu and leather and crochet-knit platform sandals iconby Missoni.

Leather and woven straw charm bag iconby Lanvin and python pumps by Alexandre Birman.

Happicolo leather shoulder bag iconby Lanvin and colour-block patent-leather sandals iconby Giuseppe Zanotti.

Sweet Charity python and leather shoulder bag iconby Christian Louboutin and Claudia embroidered suede pumps iconby Brian Atwood.

Madeleine patent-leather duffle bag iconby Chloé and Yolanda 100 patent-leather pumps by Christian Louboutin.

Happy Shopping!

And here you see my twin: Giovanni Battaglia in the same dress. Fashion faux-pas? No, not if it is worn by the famous Italian stylist.

By the way, Anna dello Russo was also dressed head to toe in Gucci F/W 2011.

Summer’s Hottest Accessory

Fur Stole

Thank you to all of you who were sending me such sweet e-mails regarding my outfit that I wore to the Chanel show in Paris last month (see photo in the middle below). Some of you were curious about the colourful fur stole, so let me tell you more about it.

Fur Stole 1

The fashion world has declared Prada’s hot accessory from the S/S 2011 runway show as the must-have item. Just look at who’s already been spotted with it.

First on the scene with the stole was no other than ueber-stylish editorilista herself, Anna Dello Russo.

Fur Stole 2

Marc Jacobs wore it casually draped around his neck to party with Kanye West while Mary-Kate Olsen was trying to hide from the paparazzi with it. It has appeared in many editorials and Rihanna sported the stole in her latest music video for her single “S&M”.

Fur Stole 3

It comes in an array of vibrant colours and is perfect to work this season’s colour block trend.

As it is mostly sold out worldwide, I have some exciting news for you. There are three pieces left in Switzerland. For further enquiries and the colour combinations available, please contact this number: +41 43 2110943.

Below you can enjoy some close-up shots of my “baby”. Aren’t those colours divine?!

LoL, Sandra
