Ruby Goes Botanical

Wednesday, July 22, 2015

Bedford Shearling coat, Serpent dress and Willow boot from Ruby's SS15/16 Nectarine collection.

Ruby takes a beautiful trip into an English garden for spring/summer 2015-16 with the release of their latest collection titled 'Nectarine'. Designer Deanna Didovich drew inspiration from a visit to the wonderful Columbia Road Flower Markets in East London and the work of floral illustrators Elizabeth Twining and Pierre Joseph Redoubté for this new range. It's not hard to see how a collection brimming with winsome blooms came from those ideas and there are a number of gorgeous prints from neon florals to geometric daisy prints, which are contrasted with stripes, spots and the most delightful lace that is oh so pretty.

Happy 20th Birthday Clueless

Monday, July 20, 2015

Justin Walker as Christian and Alicia Silverstone as Cher in Clueless.

How has it been twenty years since Clueless was released already? By now it certainly needs no introduction as I'm sure you're familiar with Amy Heckerling's fashion-obsessed comedy which was a huge hit in 1995 and is still incredibly popular today. When the movie came out I was in fact the same age as Alicia Silverstone's ditzy LA princess Cher, and quickly became fascinated by her shiny world, especially her amazing wardrobe.

Top, skirt and headwear from Natalie Chan's 'Yours Ethereally' collection.

Spring is just around the corner in the southern hemisphere and that means the release of beautiful new collections, including this gorgeous one titled 'Yours Ethereally' from Auckland label Natalie Chan. Known for her sublimely pretty millinery, clothing and bridal wear, this capsule collection focuses on the bridal side of her business with stunning dresses, separates and head wear. It's lovely to see a modern, yet still romantic take on bridal outfits, these winsome creations are imagined in a suitably soft colour palette of ivory, butterscotch, dove grey and rose pink.  The delicate lace, filmy tulle and charming applique details certainly add to the whimsical feeling of this range which definitely lives up to its name.

Paolo Sebastian's Illusion gown from his SS15/16 collection 'The Nightingale'

Paolo Sebastian certainly knows how to sweep his followers up in a couture fairytale, his latest collection for SS15/16 titled 'The Nightingale' is absolutely enchanting. Interestingly, the nightingale has long been a symbol for poets and poetry as it's melodic nocturnal song is regarded as highly creative. Unsurprisingly then it works perfectly as a cultural muse, in this case with a delightful whimsical effect. But back to the divine dresses, which are meticulously made works of art.
