Can anyone say S.E.X.Y?! Monsieur Tom Ford sure does know how to make beautiful clothes and shoes. Oh and make-up, fragrance, handbags, photographs … his list of talents is super long and by-the-way, juggling all this with a toddler in tow! The Napa simple strap evening sandal is perfect for a New Year’s eve party and I’m completely in love with the lock and key charm detail. http://www.tomford.com
I love anything techie, however here is nothing more beautiful and simple than going “Old School”. Perhaps it comes from two generations of family before me, where my grandfather and my mother both used a diary to keep track of their daily goings on. The smell of the leather cover, the white pages filled with lists made in their handwriting, appointments that reflect the people they are and those in their lives and their future adventures. So in the spirit of Old School – and 125 years of tradition – I’m crushing on these two must-haves from British house, Smythson of Bond Street. A 2015 diary and a travel wallet, the perfect combo to keep track of all the travel to come in the new year! Images courtesy of www.smythson.com
Fashion’s print darling has teamed up with german sportswear brand Adidas and has created a whole gorgeous capsule range called adidas Originals by Mary Katrantzou. As expected, the collection displays Katrantzou’s hyper-colour, kaleidoscopic colours teamed with her iconic graphic design aesthetic. I adore all the sneakers from the collection and my first thought was “Whoooah, do these come with boosters?!” Now, the hardest part will be choosing which ones… Adidas Origionals by Mary Katrantzou (Images courtesy of http://www.marykatrantzou.com)
Perhaps it’s my South African upbringing, but I love colour! When Valentino’s Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli looked into the past and found inspiration in the spirit of Frida Khalo for their Resort 2015 collection they pulled out loads of … you guessed it, colour! And this clutch was one of the brightest most exuberant pieces – it reminds me of summer and popsicles, and who doesn’t want that all year round!
