JONATHAN SIMKHAI S/S15 #NYFW

IMG_6490.JPG
Finally! A collection I can get my teeth into. Jonathan Simkhai. Inspired by broken glass, infusing geometric-patchwork-netting (that’s a thing) with my favourite hues of black and white make for a highlight (so far) of NYFW.

RUNWAY RAPTURE: SPRING/SUMMER WHITE

White is the colour of Spring and Summer and probably always will be. There’s something so chic, charming, cold, warm, and eternal about white that is so classic and will never date. White for Spring/Summer was prominent on the catwalks back in September; with KTZ‘s layers, A.F. Vandevorst‘s grubby chic, girlish lace at Elie Saab, and otherworldly dimensions at Gareth Pugh.

Back in February I was invited to attend Blogger’s Fashion Week as a VIB (Very Important Blogger!), hosted by Blogger’s Love… and I had a ball, I even had a drink (alcoholic!!!) which, anyone who knows me will know, I don’t drink. So anyway, there were tons of brands showcased at the event which was held at The Penthouse in Leicester Square, which by the way has incredible views over the whole of London!

DREAMING OF PARIS.

b9c03490da3a889599440f653be72bbb

It has been a dream of mine for a long, long time to go to Paris, and next week I will finally be going. I will be attending Paris Fashion Week, living a weird dream of mine. Paris is the home of Coco Chanel, where Elsa Schiaparelli made her name, and where Fashion Week gets exciting. All the big shows, the truly influential shows, are showcased in Paris and it really is a dream come true to actually being a part of it.
