Fashion Week, Sydney

It's all about Fashion Week in Sydney this week and although we're only half way through runway collections, I've picked out some standouts for me.

Once again, I find my eye drawn to a simple palette...

Insert Colour here...

I'm looking out the window and feeling grey... it's been grey and raining all afternoon so there's only one thing for it... let's insert a little colour shall we?

The colourful apartment of Illustrator Miranda Skoczek, situated in beachside Elwood should do the trick nicely.

I love Miranda's work with its striking mix of colourways and patterns;  her style is so beautifully reflected within the walls of her home in these photos below.

Easy Monday

Just love this styling of Julia Nobis for US Harpers Bazaar April issue.

Just a chic combination of barely there makeup, a soft feminine blouse and a statement pant, in your face and restrained whilst swept back into that slick bun.  Contradictions galore!

Love it ... that leopard/ocelot trend certainly looks like it's going to stay awhile don't you think.  (I might just stick to accessories for now!)

In The Schedule

How's your weekend looking?  A dinner here, a party there, a catchup around the corner... something's always booked into the calendar.  At some stage, I'll be looking forward to some quiet time on the sofa to re-acquaint myself with some of these links I've had on my desktop for a while now...

Here we go...

Lanvin A/W 14

+ Celebrating 125 years of Lanvin, the 10 Codes of Lanvin, from hats, to family, to logo, we find out how Jeanne Lanvin's legacy is vital to today's business.  Via Another Mag here.

+  This week's issue of The Edit has a great interview/editorial featuring Vanessa Paradis - loved it - love her - love the wardrobe - love her new hair!  Photographed by Raf Stahelin.

+ Yep, it's time for layering again... why not colour coded layering?  This fun editorial for Vogue Germany April issue.

+ Take a tour through photographers Inez Van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin's Manhattan Apartment; all colour, fun, and whimsy, via Share Design here.

+  And lastly, if you are looking to take fabulous photos of your home for social media, I found this article from Design Sponge interesting... Photo 101, Five tips on how to shoot interiors.

Have a great weekend...

The Bassike...

A look at Bassike's pre fall 2014 collection gives you an insight into the ease of Australian dressing... it's always about form and function, not fuss and fashion.

Simple pieces, luxe finishes, relaxed styling; and their philosophy... "all about creating wardrobe staples with longevity; combining timeless style with premium quality and sustainable fabrics."

Maybe this film might give you a better understanding...

Segueing from those luxe striped tees and lounge pants last summer, through to this winter (not that you'd know winter today!)...

Workable Monday

After a little blog break, and not really going online for a week or so, I feel recharged.  It's warm outside, sunny, and hitting 30degrees... gotta take some inspiration from that right?

I'm also feeling inspired by these pics of gorgeous Daria Werbowy; is it me or is she constantly being styled in a low key, little makeup, easy going made up look?  Whatever it is, I love it.  And I love that she comes across no nonsense, down to earth and strong.

That first look... hair pulled back in a bun, simple sweater, knee length skirt and sneakers... perfect for me!

May your week be inspired in the same no nonsense fashion!  Enjoy!
