Fashion hits, beauty tips & the art of recycling your wardrobe

Digital flowers and a splash of Magenta

I have never been much of a floral patterns fan, they had always reminded me of countryside wallpapers and my granny’s old tea dresses from the 70s. Not that Granny wears them at her grand age of 87, she has actually been pretty much a Calvin Klein-esque kind of granny for the last few decades, favouring neutral shades , tailored black trousers, crisp white shirts and grey cardies.

Despite having been pretty much out of the fashion scene for a number of years, this Spring designers have decided to bring back the punch into flowers, by digitizing and distorting them, turning them into psychedelic mirages. As I’m still waiting for Preen and Mary Katrantzou’s high impact flower power designs to be on the shop-floors, I digged deep into my closet and found a bustier dress by Single, bought 3 summers ago from Net-A-Porter , thinking it was a bit too loud and brash at the time; only it was the most miserable grey summer I had ever witnessed in London and needed some much-needed cheering-up.

I teamed it with my current shoe obsession :  YSL’s Tribute sandals in Magenta, a colour with mood uplifting properties and a great compliment to Orange, deep blue or green. Black slim fit cropped jacket by Pinko, Snake-effect Pink clutch bought from a tiny boutique on King’s Road.
