Karl Lagerfeld’s Spring 2015 Haute Couture collection for Chanel was an explosion of blossoming flowers, bunched in wedding-worth bouquets at the shoulders and delicately gracing hems of mid-length evening wear.

It took six months to make the 300 flowers that decorated the Chanel set today. Each of them had its own engine, and when at the show’s start Baptiste Giabiconi applied a theatrical splash from a CC-branded watering can and they simultaneously burst into mechanical bloom.

Possibly a commentary on a technological and synthetic future that awaits us, each flower was flawless and meticulously sown by hand on to each garment. Karl’s ability to set trends and yet retain the classic aesthetic of Gabrielle Chanel grows with each collection, as we are swept into Karl’s world. There is always a story to be told and an underlying comment to be made when considering the world of today.

After a long break away from the blogging sphere, I am back with my first post of 2015, from Perth, WA. Various factors have lead to us being back in the West, but so far so good! I am back working for my favourite Australian brand CUE, so you can look forward to some CUE looks in the upcoming outfit posts.

This look was shot on a visit to Penguin Island, a beautiful backdrop that shows just a little of what WA has to offer. I am looking forward to our new future here, but I am still missing the people and adventures that we had in the wonderful Cairns.

Barbra Steisand in On A Clear Day You Can See Forever from 1970, is my inspiration for this Sunday’s Style Envy.

1960s/1970s silouhettes and psychedelic prints in bold colours is the basis for a vibrant and fun wardrobe. A lesson in accessorising, Ms Streisand tops off almost every look with a hat while rose tinted glasses and pussy bow ties add that extra stylish touch!

Streisand’s character in the film is a little quirky and her wardrobe reflects that. Also look out for a young Jack Nicholson in a yellow roll-neck jumper!

I like to follow a rule, if it looks wrong….it’s probably right!

Ok so this isn’t always true and I must admit I have had may fair share of wrongs, but I do believe in mixing prints. Example this nautical striped tee and leopard track pants. These casual pieces become fashion-forward when paired together. It shouldn’t work but it does….or at least I think so!

The key to this look is to picking pieces with similar colours and tones, so no clashing colours and prints!

What do you think of this look?
