Last but certainly not least amongst my fashion week get-ups: a full blown whiteout. This look was my favourite, especially since I wouldn't necessarily embrace a snowy palette from head-to-toe on a day-to-day basis, but given the circumstances it felt like a rather compelling stance to take .. As I pointed out on twitter on the morning of, the ensemble was put together as an ode to Stella McCartney, with an obvious wink to her Fall 2011 collection - remember Sasha strutting down the runway in those extra-loose immaculate palazzos? - and a more general nod to her now signature all-white silhouettes, that we saw again at resort '13 (and also in Paris for SS13, but I won't claim I knew that one was coming). The jacket, meanwhile, told a story of its own. Here is high street piece that can almost pass off as haute fashion. It bears a resemblance of sorts to a Proenza Schouler cover-up, with a hint of this summer's Phillip Lim's albino biker, yet is individual enough to have a personality of its own. With a sleek finish in white, grainy leather, it was the perfect, edgy, urban touch to an otherwise urbane silhouette. My only regret is that I did not possess a suitably matching clutch to keep the look clinically clean. Alas, that is something to be added to my wardrobe, so 'twas the sequin ornate pouch that came along for the ride. The final touch, 'blanc' nails by essie, and off I went to the Topshop Venue. And that is a wrap people. See you in February!
PS: I wanted to say a massive thank you to THE CUT for including me in their "30 Most Stylish People from Fashion Month" feature. I really could not be more happy and honoured ... nor in better company to be honest!
I'm wearing a Zara Studio leather jacket over a Maje tee, and Mango wide-leg trousers (on sale now). The wedges are also Mango (get similar here) and the sequin clutch is Zara. Accessories wise we have rings by COS, bracelets by COOEE, and round shades by ASOS.SHOP MY CLOSET
