Lacoste SS 12 RTW

I am sure you all know the brand Lacoste very well, mostly for its famous 'crocodile' logo and its simple stripes design. But have you seen Lacoste collections from the past few seasons? Even I was shocked when I saw Lacoste SS12 collection on the magazine (not going to lie). This new season collection has retained parts of its well-known simple design with a bit of 'twist'. Now it's way more than the casual sport look/ teen sport look... And oh mamma, those shoes...

Unmistakable cap

Topshop jumper
Topshop bag
H&M cap hat

This is my little attempt on wearing the hat on Sunday. On my first attempt I decided to go for the sport look, as it is much easily to work around with the hat. Sport hat + net jumper + sport/gym bag... what do you think? Could definitely be improved though. I'll carry on to work on this sport look, there's no doubt on this. I'm also thinking of doing another post of the cap hat with a dress...  Can't wait to see the result!

P.s I have got to apologise in advance about my frown face. At the time when these photos were taken, I was suffering from a very bad cold also hayfever at the same time. Was sneezing a lot so therefore the frown face!

Acne RTW S/S 12

Who doesn't love Acne? Look at this collection... completely left me speechless. So unbelievably, perfectly done. The cross-neck cropped jumper is my favourite, although I love all the other pieces in the collection just almost the same amount. Now I've got to look for the Acne substitutes on the high streets, wish me luck!

BFC Mens collections: S/S 13

Photos from Lou Dalton, Hackett London, Topman, Xander Zhou and YMC

We have all waited long enough for the Men Fashion Week to finally arrive in London. Shamely I have been extremely busy these days with work so I couldn't attend any of the shows and take some live photos. There were quite a few designers that I would really like to meet! Here is a selection of the photos from the first day of the BFC Mens collections, enjoy!

P.s the last photo is just a joke from Topman...

Pop of Colours

Cos dress
H&M cap hat

Yesterday I went shopping for a yellow dress for tonight's party. When I was in the accessories section of H&M, this cap hat really caught my eye for its amazing neon yellow colour. Compared to another white and blue net one that I saw in Topshop, this hat has definitely topped that hat! And of course even I never imagined myself EVER wearing a cap hat, I had to buy it. Such an amazing colour for a hat, you've got to respect Acne's hat trend as well! I will sure show you pictures of me wearing this hat soon!

Romwe Trench Coat

You may be wondering why I am still wearing a heavy trench coat in the middle June... The reason for this is because Britain's weather is simply, unbelievably ridiculous. It has rained everyday this week and the past two weeks. In fact it surprised no passer-bys that I have been wearing a heavy trench coat lately. This beautiful trench coat was bought from the Romwe website last winter, with the leather collar and special cut on the back, it's really more than just a trench coat. This beautiful trench coat even gained a couple of compliments today when I took it out for a spin!

Have a nice weekend,

Tuesday: Designer collection review- Alexander Wang Resort Collection

Hello readers! So since my exams finished, I have been thinking of establishing something more stable with my blog. Here comes the first step, on every Tuesday from now on, I will be reviewing a designer collection with you, selecting the best pictures for you on each collection and discuss the styling ideas! What do you think? Also this is a promise that there will be no fail on my Tuesday Designer collection post!

My first designer collection review of course goes to my all time favourite designer... Alexander Wang! His amazing creations never fail me, his collection is always the first collection I look at every season. The easy to wear, sporty-luxe looks have been my favourite for two years now, and still to be continued... Back to the resort collection, when I was looking at it, I had somehow divided the whole collection into three parts in my head.

First the easy to wear/ ready to go looks. Something you would leave the house with during the day:

Then the 'something-inbetween' looks that you could wear from daytime to evening time:

And at last the looks that are more or less the mature workwear looks:

Which part is your favourite? If you know me, mine is of course the easy to wear looks, except the all white look in the third part (I'm in love with the 'white' trend just now!).

H&M for Water & Holiday season

This post is for ladies only... So after the last couple of weeks of sunny days in London and now back to the misery weather, maybe it's time to start planing for summer holidays abroad right? No matter wherever you go, Europe or a local beach in England like Devon, you have got to have at least one bikini for the beach. Here are some ideas... The first two photos are the swimwear from H&M recent collection, called 'H&M for Water'. Not usually the type of swimwear I would go for, seeing that I am usually a minimalist... But these two swimwears really caught my eyes. Especially the first one, immediately puts me in the summer mood (while daydreaming about being in Hawaii..).

The rest of the photos are also from the H&M collection of swimwear. As we are speaking now, of course I have already bought myself a set of bikini! Hopefully going to the Italian seaside this summer! The ones that I bought are the bottom from the third photo and the top from the forth photo! What do you think? The net around the neck is really sexy! Isn't it? Or maybe it's just the model? Nonetheless, I think what makes the bikini look so good on the models is the combination of the accessories and the swimwear. Better get my hands on some gold accessories as well I think..
