Carine Roitfeld teams up with Uniqlo

The week would not have been complete without sharing the most exciting piece of news - my beloved Carine Roitfeld has teamed up with Uniqlo to create a 40-piece collection of wardrobe essentials, from outerwear to lingerie based on the idea of "clothes that make a woman feel transformed when she wears them" and something Roitfeld "would want to wear" herself.

They promised the ultimate pencil skirt among other offerings reworked by Carine for the brand's LifeWear concept, so I am already quietly dying inside because waiting until October is a torture... Torture!

Outfit inspiration: 3 ways to style a trench coat

14/04/2015

How to wear a trench coat? How to wear white trousers? Outfit idea and designer look for less inspired by Porsche Design Spring/Summer 2015 collection / via fashioned by love british fashion blog
"How to wear trench?" sounds like a very trivial question for it seems that every single option to style this wardrobe must-have has already been covered. And yet, here is one more, straight off the runway - beautiful and simple, chic and comfortable, perfect for the early spring days when you just want to find another way to embrace the light colours and yes, wear those white trousers... and a trench... and a delicate skirt... and... and... 

Loved these looks from Porsche Design, Maiyet and Jason Wu collection very much, so had to recreate them, both for the blog and to wear this season. Because, as it shows, when it comes to trench coat, the possibilities are endless.

"Fashion can be really racist, looking at the clothes of other cultures as costumes. That's mundane and old hat. Let's break down some barriers. Get more inspiration from the personality of the region than the actual ethic origin. It's more important for the evolution of any design."
