♥ Ivory Cup Sleeve Jumper ♥ Oxblood Cup Sleeve Jumper DressI'm really excited for the start of London Fashion Week tomorrow, and looking forward to seeing what the amazing designers have in store for us on the catwalks of Spring/Summer 2014. However, I'm currently feeling inspired by all the beauty of the Autumn/Winter garments in store now, especially where beautifully rich and vibrant jewel tones, as well as intriguing textures, are concerned.
I've always been an incredibly tactile person, exploring the textures of the clothes racks when out shopping, and I'm also rather partial to a satisfyingly cuddly jumper to keep me snug. So I really like the look of the above cup sleeve jumper and knitted dress by the wonderful designer Hussein Chalayan I spied on luxury online shopping neighbourhood Avenue 32.
They're perfect for staying both cosy and chic through the colder months and the knit looks so luxurious. When I think of Chayalan's work my mind naturally goes to his iconic and astoundingly innovative bubble dress, and for his more wearable but still gorgeous pre fall 2013 collection Chalayan was inspired by transformation from chrysalis to butterfly.
♥ Oxblood Wrap Maxi Dress ♥ Petrol Nothing Mini Dress ♥ Pink Nothing Maxi DressWith a wonderfully curated selection of designer womenswear, Avenue 32 is a lovely online destination for new season shopping with many a gorgeous item to lust over. Also in stock are Chalayan's evening wear dresses which showcase sleek elegance: from close fitting and crisp mini and maxi dresses in vibrant petrol greens and striking pinks, to the softly falling length of the full length oxblood red wrap dress. Perfect for seeing you though special occasions, cocktail affairs and the upcoming party season, they can be worn simply with a pair of killer heels, making quite an impact in their own right, or be dressed up with statement jewellery.
What's on your dream list for Autumn/Winter?
