What did Katie actually do?

I’ve just received a very quirky looking business card from someone at work about a new range of jewellery. Yes a lot different from the new Links or van cleef and arpels lines but this new and upcoming jewellery designer is a must see for all those quirky jewellery buffs out there! And who wants to have the same pieces anyway?!

Miniature cake slices, razors, scissors and skull earrings are just some of Katie’s first pieces in her range KATIE DID THIS.

Wear Versace this Autumn

VERSACE TO DESIGN ICONIC COLLECTION FOR H&M THIS AUTUMN

H&M is proud to announce that its autumn 2011 designer collaboration will be with one of the world’s most legendary fashion brands, Versace. Designed by its creative director Donatella Versace, the exclusive collection will look back to the vibrant heritage of the brand, full of leather, print, colour and exuberance in exclusive materials at fantastic H&M prices. The collection will include ranges for women, men and selected pieces for the home. It will be available from 17 November in around 300 stores worldwide, as well as on-line. In addition, Donatella Versace has also designed a pre-spring collection for H&M which will be exclusively available in countries with H&M on-line sales from January 19, 2012.

“I am thrilled to be collaborating with H&M and to have the opportunity of reaching their wide audience. The collection will be quintessential Versace, perfect for H&M and Versace fans everywhere,” says Donatella Versace.   

“Versace is one of the most important brands of recent times, and their collection for H&M will be glamorous and flamboyant – everything Versace stands for. Donatella Versace is sharing with us iconic designs from the archives. This is such a celebratory collaboration and it is perfect for the party season,” says Margareta van den Bosch, creative advisor at H&M. 

Versace is a brand that is steeped in glamour to its very core. Founded in 1978 by Gianni Versace, his daring dresses and wild iconography revolutionized fashion, creating provocative styles from classical themes which were all cut with an impeccable design eye. Since 1997, Donatella Versace has continued Gianni Versace’s work as creative director, evolving the brand into a global fashion house at the forefront of what luxury means today. Famous worldwide for her signature wardrobe, Donatella Versace is the epitome of everything the Versace house stands for. 

Versace is the latest house to collaborate with H&M on an exclusive designer collection, following the likes of Karl Lagerfeld, Stella McCartney, Comme des Garçons, Jimmy Choo and, most recently, Lanvin. For H&M, Donatella Versace has looked back to the archives to reinterpret some classic Versace designs. The womenswear collection will be dominated by dresses that fit right in with the spirit of the season, featuring studded leather, silk and colorful print, with accessories including high heels and costume jewellery. The men’s collection will focus on sharp tailoring, including the perfect tuxedo, as well as belts and jewellery for men, too. For the first time in a designer collaboration at H&M the collection will consist of some homeware pieces, including cushions and a bedspread.

Christmas in July

Links of London held their AW11/Christmas in July press event last week.

Over three days new collections and collaborations were viewed and discussed, including the collection with Lauren Bush and FEED which everyone was super excited about!

They converted their large showroom into a London park and hosted a sort of British summer picnic but with a Christmas twist.  Slightly eccentric – think pimms and mince pies!  There was a vintage icecream bicycle and a guy busking on guitar too.

See all the pictures from the event plus a snapshot of their new collection here!

This stunning red colour block dress captivates simplicity beautifully with the luxuriousness of the fabric and elegant cut. Accessorise with matching clutches and dramatic accessories which can all be viewed on her website.

My favourite from the collection is this elegant strapless light gold chiffon maxi dress. With it’s rouche detail on the bust and floaty fabric it is sure to be my summer lust have! Pair with accessories in similar nudes from the collection to keep the focus on the dress.

Triangle Strap Dress £90

 

 

Classic Crystal Gem Dress £140

 

If you’re going to invest in one bag this season invest in the clutch.

Here Evevee presents two stunning clutches in royal eye-catching colours; royal red and vivid blue

If you’re not sure how to wear such bright shades of red and blue then these clutches are prefect for incorporating a splash of colour into your Summer outfit. The twisted elegant designs of layered fabric give another dimension to them, taking them away from boring flat styles of latter day, instead injecting detail and femininity.

But if you are not ready for that colour pop yet, take a look at the other styles on the website. These include cut out, one shouldered and strapless nude numbers in floaty layers or prom style black evening dresses. The red strapless satin dress from the collection (above) and a black twisted front clutch (red version shown above) arrived for me today! The fabric on both clearly shows the brands lavishness and sensuous taste and the fit is like a glove! If it’s good enough for Evevee…
