… this white leather Reiss Sal handbag. I have been looking for a perfect white bag for a while now and this one might just be the one. In case white isn’t your colour, this beauty is also available in classic black, brown and red versions. I did tell you this beauty was perfect, didn’t I?
MFW Fall 2013: most indulgent
Milan wrapped a woman in the most sensual, delicious, timeless and beautiful clothes imaginable. After the sharp minimalism of New York and extravagant London, Milan visually welcomed me with wearable dreams and made me realise that, should I’ve had an unlimited budget, the shopping would be inevitable and so would be the tears of joy as I touched and embraced the clothes and buried my face in the wools, silks, cashmere and buttery soft leather inhaling the most intoxicating scent of luxury.
The lady-like full skirts and figure-fitted dresses at Prada, the soft and romantic as marshmallow’y clouds at Blumarine, the utterly gorgeous, sculpted and effortlessly chic Bottega Veneta, the Byzantine-inspired couture disguised as ready-to-wear at Dolce & Gabbana, the lady-like slick designs with a 70s feel at Maurizio Pecoraro and the emotional fashion moment at Prada.
And now it’s time to dream…

LFW Autumn 2013: few and far between
What can I say about London fashion week? If I should say anything at all, really… It was a disappointment and felt more like a hyperactive pit stop between New York and Milan, not a proper landing in one of the fashion capitals. I was excited to see my favourites (no names this time, for obvious reasons), but some just didn’t deliver and left me feeling not just confused but fooled and I didn’t like that. At all.
It wasn’t about a woman who wears but men who design. And all I can say to those men is that it doesn’t matter how handsome you are, how many A-listers you have in a front row, or how many times you send Cara walk down the runway – if you get it wrong, you get it wrong, and everyone, even those who don’t say it out loud, will remember it until you get it right again.
Somehow I was left with an impression I usually get after watching X-Factor/American Idol editions. A kid who can’t sing is often the one who is told by his family and friends (or Central St Martins professor for that matter) how “awesome and talented” he or she is and how mean the judges are. In reality, the truth may hurt but it’s best to experience the pain in a company of your close friends than get out there in front of the millions.
Here are my favourites, though. Sculptural and feminine Antonio Berardi designs, exquisite Christopher Kane feather dress, soft vinyl-inspired geometry at David Koma, fairy tale Fairy-worthy coats and silk dresses covered in mesmerising prints and embroidery at Kinder Aggugini, flared and pleated Matthew Williamson’s romantic designs and pure and elegant Mulberry, Pringle and Temperley looks.
