it’s all in the details
As geeky as it sounds I still to this day call out ‘Pleats Please!’ whenever I wear one of the three pleated midi skirts I own. This obsession with pleats stemmed from the romantic ruffled details I had seen created by Chanel, Chloé and McQueen. This trend was followed by flares making a come back, belled sleeves and more recently, the subtle – but genius trend of frayed seams… I think we are all still in love with this look.
In the last couple of weeks another style feature has caught my eye from designers such as Vera Wang, Valentino and Victoria Beckham just to name a few. Rouched pieces! – more specifically pointing at the drawstring. This detail is surprisingly so dreamy with a sports luxe feel, it is sure to be the heartbreaker to all of us fashion lovers in 2017. I can’t wait to get my hands on one of the rouched Georgia Alice numbers that always look so damn cool.
