It’s not often I jump on the print wagon, and certainly not when the colour red is involved, but it was love at first sight back in February, when then Gucci’s newly appointed Creative Director Alessandro Michele, served us geeky-chic seventies vibes and ruffles, that instantly got me onboard.

I’ve been wearing this floral ensemble, signed by the latter, already more than many others of my wardrobe treasures, and will keep on trying for different ways, though varieties are not endless. Anyway, layering over trousers was not invented yesterday, but that’s just what I will do this season to get the most out of my favourite dresses, shorter and longer hems.
And then you’ve got the ruffles… Be prepared, it’s gonna be one of the key trend words come 2016.

Silk dress by Gucci, velvet trousers by MiH, bag by Chloé, watch by Isabel Marant, diamond bangle by DeBeers and shoes by Celine.

It’s been long.
It’s September and half way in through Fashion Week month.
I’m not kicking off a new season with excuses for not being able to update this space for long, but rather say I’m glad to be back!

If the latter can be said about summer being over and done is a different story, but I’m certainly gonna get my bare legs out there as long as they don’t turn blue, feeling in no rush to cover up just yet in heavy fall pieces. Great knits are always perfect for transitional dressing and this gorgeously soft cashmere jumper (!) and leather skirt, both by Danish label 2NDDAY, kept me perfectly adjusted for a busy, sunny day on the run during London Fashion Week.
There’s a jungle of Scandinavian brands out there but you can safely add 2NDDAY to your radar, with edgy contemporary cuts, high quality, not too frightening price points, and great collections to come throughout the year. Available on 2NDDAY.com and very exclusive.co.uk.

See you all very soon, we are back to school!!

Leather skirt and cashmere knit by 2ndDay (in stores in January 2016), suede shoes by Chloé, Ray-Ban’s, clutch by Balenciaga, iPhone case by Charlotte Olympia, diamond rings by Monica Vinader and diamond buffalo by Marlene Juhl Jørgensen.
