Boden New Season – Gorgeous spring brights

The Boden Spring/Summer collection was one of the most exciting I saw at the press days, and it is now hitting stores and online. This is a collection that is just bursting with colour of every shade, on dresses, knitwear and accessories. And, being Boden, all those gorgeous, quirky touches are there in abundance, from button back jumpers to colour blocking bags.

This collection reminds me of Miu Miu in many aspects. Stripes are teamed with spots, dresses have a 1960s feel with Peter Pan collars and colours seemed designed to be both clashing and matching in equal parts. The Highbury Dress, in particular, could be a Miu Miu design and is the sort of dress that Alexa Chung looks so fabulous in, especially when teamed with 1960s style sling-back kitten heels.

I think the Boden accessories are also going to be much sought after this season. The colour pop duffle style bags are fabulous, particularly in the mustard shade, whilst the colour clash satchel is a design classic given a new breathe of life.

Autumn Collection at New Look

With the dawn of September we can safely say that Autumn is here, and I must admit that this is one of my favourite times of the year. I adore the autumnal colours, the darker shades that come back into our fashion focus, and I also love the addition of knitwear to our wardrobe again (although, being honest, this year it hasn’t actually left our wardrobe…)

One of the most successful new season ranges I have seen so far this season has been the collection from New Look. Filled with strong shades of bottle green and deep purple, teamed with more muted greys, and with a smattering of the always classic monochrome, New Look have taken strong, simple designs and infused them with life with the right colours and prints for the new season. I love the Gucci inspired green jeans and blazers, the sort of pieces I could see Charlotte Casiraghi wearing, whilst the pretty bird prints and fan prints have inspiration that seems to flow from the best of Miu Miu.

This is a great collection of ultra wearable pieces that will work hard for you all season long.

Tribeca Film Festival – All the best looks

This weekend saw the 10th annual Tribeca Film Festival, with a very starry line up in attendance. Emma Watson, Michelle Williams, Emily Blunt and Helena Christensen were amongst the celebrity line-up who were bringing some real glamour to the proceedings. There were lots of outfits that I was lusting after, so I have found it quite hard to choose my favourites, but here they are, with some ideas on how to get the look for yourself.

Helena Christensen defied age in a strikingly simple, but eye-catchingly pretty Marc by Marc Jacobs dress. This is just the perfect white summer dress that every wardrobe should have. All it needed was a glowing tan as an accessory.

MARC by Marc Jacobs Palmetto Eyelet Dress, $458 

Phase Eight Maria cotton dress 

Flounced Bustier Dress with Detachable Shoestring Straps £35 

Emma Watson looked gloriously quirky in Miu Miu mismatched prints at the Struck By Lightning premiere. I loved the fresh youthfulness of this outfit, given an added edge with the cropped leather jacket. The pink purse was also a great touch.

MIU MIU Peplum leather jacket £1,930.00 

Urban Code Leather Peplum Biker Jacket 

Evans Fan Print Blouse Price: £19.50 

Mantaray £35.00 Blue swallow print skirt 

Oasis Floral Skirt, Multi £40

 Camilla Belle was her usual impeccable self, with all eyes on that wonderful bag. Tan is the perfect shade to accompany white, and tan leather is always a winner.

Nikita FIT AND FLARE DRESS CREAM £169 

Tan large croc flap tote Price: £35.00 

Brown flapover shoulder tote Price: £65.00 

Michelle Williams looked really gorgeous in her Giambattista Valli 1920s style dress. This merged  fabrics, patterns and textures to great effect,  and the colours really suited Michelle’s porcelain skin.

ILVA – Printed dress – £159

CHORA – Floral printed dress – £139 

This is my absolute favourite dress of the last month. Emily Blunt again adopted green to dazzling effect in this beautiful prom style gown at the premiere of ‘The Five Year Engagement’.

rosicia bandeau £150.00
