Neil Barrett is an English born designer based in Milan, Italy. His portfolio includes previous appointments designing menswear for the house of Gucci and Prada. He has built his business around designing minimalist menswear.
For his womenswear collection, Neil Barrett combines his design blueprint from his menswear collection to produce a chic minimalist aesthetic, which I’m truly appreciating.
In this look I am wearing Neil Barrett’s mix knit dress from his Fall 2013 collection with over the knee boots from Vic Matie.
This modern leather jacket and mix knit dress are some of my favourite pieces from the fall collection.
To date, Neil Barrett has developed a celebrity following among male stars including the likes of Orlando Bloom, Colin Firth, Jake Gyllenhal, Lenny Kravitz, Ewan McGregor, Chris Martin, Mark Ruffalo and Brad Pitt. Female celebrity attraction include such stars as Jennifer Aniston, Madonna, Kirsten Dunst, Angelina Jolie, Kate Hudson and Robin Wright.

PLAID, LACE, LEATHER AND FISHNETS
Playing with the grunge trend of the season, I wore this plaid shirt dress together with a black lace slip, fishnet stockings, lace up boots and topped it off with my leather motorcycle jacket.
I had accidentally snagged a hole in my fishnets in the morning, so just went with the flow and cut more holes in them, further completing the look of the day. Making lemonade out of lemons? I think so.

ENTER THE WORLD OF JEAN PAUL GAULTIER
Here are a series of photos that I’ve taken over the last two months wearing dresses from Jean Paul Gaulthier’s Fall 2013 collection.
I love to accessorize with a pair of leather gloves or leather gauntlets with evening dresses or with some of my outfits. Leather gloves seem to be quite fitting with these ones.
Jean Paul Gaulthier cultivates style and mystery with this hooded black dress. I’ve been eagerly anticipating it’s arrival all season.

TOUGH YET ROMANTIC ~ ISABEL MARANT SPRING 2014
First of all, apologies for the absence, I’ve been on hiatus for the last two months, as things have been quite busy in something we all know as… life.
As September has passed, I’ve got a bit of time to refocus on my blog again and what better time to do it than after the close of Paris Fashion Week and being utterly taken away by Isabel Marant’s collection for Spring 2014.
The collection was absolutely breathtaking and Isabel brings us back to her roots with the tough yet romantic aesthetic, we all know and love.
I’ve chosen seven of my favourite looks to share with you here.
This slightly over-sized blazer with strong lines worn with a soft and short ruffly dress dutifully illustrates the contrasting ideas she enjoys working with.
I’m eagerly anticipating for the arrival of this ensemble for the spring. The cropped jacket and lace bralette is just so endearing.
This black ruffle leather skirt shows her mixing of dark and light elements.
To sum it up the collection has made my heart skip a few beats and has left a lasting impression.
On another note, the Isabel Marant for H&M collection will be launching in November.

A KALEIDOSCOPE OF PRINTS
Currently obsessed with the kaleidoscope of prints and pencil skirt silhouettes from Peter Pilotto for Fall 2013. The otherworldly digital, graphic prints and nipped waist skirts are none less than compelling.
P.S. I made my very first Instagram video featuring this skirt. See below.

RED LACE DRESS
The heatwave has been the backdrop for the inspiration of this post, currently feeling as hot as the colour of this red lace dress. I’ve found my jasmine scented wooden fan from my childhood days, it’s serving not only as an accessory, but a necessity.

CLASSIC BLACK AND WHITE BUT IT’S ALL ABOUT THE DETAILS
Black and white seems to be a recurring theme for me lately. But I love the simplicity of it. This blouse and skirt have just the little touch of details it needs to make it interesting.

Another kimono inspired outfit.
This time worn with my favorite pants. I can’t get enough of these R13 leather chaps.

EAST X WEST . STRUCTURE X FLOW
I’ve always had a fascination with kimonos. When I found this kimono inspired, embroidered fringe top, it was instant attraction. I love mixing eastern and western aesthetics together as well as contrasting soft lines with something structured.
