Lana Del Rey = Envy of all women

In Uncategorized on February 24, 2012 at 12:59 pm

Lana Del Rey has had a Mulberry bag made in her honour.

Not only is she absolutely stunning, and has a voice to die for, she has also become the latest muse for Mulberry.

 

That’s right, she’s only been on the scene for a short while, and already has a designer tote named after her.

The ‘Del Rey’, as it is called, is just as classic as her 50’s pin-up beauty. She was spotted showing it off on her arm at London Fashion Week at the Claridge’s Hotel on Monday. Of course all women were admiring it, and instantly had it trending on Twitter.

In white ostrich leather, I’m sure this British bag will be ‘flying’ off the shelves. Mulberry bags looking to sell out this Spring/Summer would have to be the Cookie Bayswater and the Harriet Tote in cream. Both bags would look amazing against the cute pastel trends that are popular this Spring/Summer.

The Mulberry A/W Show was stunning as always, with ‘Where the wild things are’ as a soundtrack and a strong influence to the collection. Expect furs in all textures, and earthy burnt orange prints this winter!

Milan Fashion Week

Marni at Milan Fashion Week

Milan Fashion week has inspired all fashion followers into the new trends for Spring/Summer next year, with an abundance of bold colours and prints reeling us in.

Yet to fail us with their designs, D&G wowed in bold printed silks and draping fabrics; a perfect mix for warm weather travelling in style. 70’s accesories were brought from s/s 11′ into s/s 12′ again, but with a more glamorous, exotic feel.

Marni decorated the catwalk with ice cream pastel hues in lose fitting fabrics, with contrasting strong prints. Consuela Castigliani’s collection exposed a 60s feel with collars, ankle socks and florals.

Missoni brought the colours of the sea to their s/s collection, with textured fabrics on flamenco skirts and sheer tops.

Alberta Ferretti’s designs sashayed out in mismatched prints and clashing colours of purples and reds, but the designs really worked and gave a fun take on summer style.

The 1920’s was encapsulated in the Gucci range of designs, with shimmering flapper dresses in monochrome, and tassled box clutches to compliment the glamorous designs. The other half of the collection portrayed a smarter feel, with black and gold double ankle strap heels against sheer blouses and tux trousers.

There was a futuristic feel at Emporio Armani’s classy robotic collection, which included diagonal fabric cuts, plastic heels, and without a colour to be seen. Armani’s range gave a grown up, sophisticated goth vibe to the catwalk.

Prada showed beautiful vintage styles, with 60s wallpaper prints and burlesque style kitten heels and sheer, lightweight long coats. Crop tops and pencil skirts in satin and silk finishes outshone the collection, and pleated knee-length skirts oozed glamour sex appeal teamed with sheer 3/4 sleeve blouses.

Overall I LOVE the new S/S 12′ collectiona that were shown at MFW , especially from my favourites; Prada and D&G. I reckon vintage will be a main trend from the 20’s through to the 70’s (which I admitt im still excited about!) I also think it would be wise to keep an eye out for sheer, luxe blouses for Spring and skimpy bustiers for next Summer.
