In preparation and celebration of the sun coming out I’ve taken to dying my hair grey (a stylish interpretation of this fashionable stress) and I’ve been parading around town in brown (and beige and white). Perfect, because my MERCI ME LONDON wardrobe is prime provider of this look! I’m finding that the Calla coat with all its admirers is becoming a staple piece that I’m sure will be worn even when the season has completely turned. It’s meant to be a transitional piece; spring to summer and summer to Autumn but I’ll probably be wearing this coat pre, during and post season. I’ll even coin it the summer coat. It now exists, it isn’t a myth, no, in this season – temperamental London it’s fact and necessity!
CURRENTLY WEARING; (in order) Structured white Tee, Brown Calla Coat, White Hyacinth maxi skirt, Calla coat Coat.
On the cover of the Wolf & Bader Designer Directory for Spring summer 2015 is our diverse and visually rich ACENG Calla Waistcoat. Now available at Wolf & Badger, Dover Street Mayfair branch.
How do they (as in those always stylishly ahead) stay stylishly ahead? It has something to do with Boutiques like Wolf & Badger and their insider magazine The SETT – a real gem for the fashionforward, trendsetting, directional dresser. We just happen to have our Queen Anne Lace up Trousers in the Miami Dreams editorial. Feast your eyes…
Viktoria Modesta is a multimedia performance artist, bionic girl and DJ who’s sole mission is to promote individualism and futuristic image through art. Featured in ID, IDOL and Wonderland Magazine, The National Portrait Gallery, not to mention her performances at high profile events she is one to watch.
In fact, she is quite possibly the most refreshing performance artist we’ve seen thus far. A niche indeed, you can’t say you know anyone like her and someone who has fervently proved that disability means nothing in the toil of hard work and talent! Visually, she is stunning and her alternative play on her prosthesis creates compelling visuals both still and motion that will captivate you.
So Instead of wishing for a white christmas, I created my own white winter and wore all white everything. In fact this season I am more drawn to white than any other colour. I’m suspiciously drawn to it. Nope, I’m not considering it’s cold outside and the expectation to wear brown, dark greens, blacks and blues for the end of the year. But in fact, white is so clean and defining it’s super hard for me to resist. Particularly in contrast to scenery – you stand out like a star in a dark sky. I think I may have just discovered my suspicious reasoning.
