LOVING (Better late than never!)

LOVING the 50’s trend this season. After the celebration of androgynity comes the manifestation of ultra-femininity. Just take a look at Louis Vuitton’s new ad campaign: it says, loud and clear, that big skirts – and boobs – are back! Or again, turn to the Prada on the catwalk: just look at those gorgeous stiletto pumps, so like their predecessors from sixty or so years ago, or the return of the ‘lady bag’ (take a look at Paul & Joe, Max Mara and Chloe for some beautifully structured specimens). Another little something to be on the look out for is long leather gloves. Come winter, I will be getting out my two antique pairs and pairing them with silver cuffs and bangles...

Perfect for luxurious black-tie Christmas parties and every shape and size, 50's style is a winner all round. Just imagine donning a full-skirted silk gown, wrapping yourself in a massive coat and traipsing through the falling snow to a house with yellow-lit windows...

Pair your frivolous frocks with classic pointy-toe stilettos (Prada and Louis Vuitton are THE places to look), a clutch or framed handbag, and some gorgeous gloves. Make-up wise, remember to keep it simple: cat-tails, red lips, neutral nails, and remember to back-brush into that oh-so-sixties beehive bun.

More posts coming very soon as the holiday season kicks off - see you soon everybody!
