Love of the week: Fendi SS13 collection

This Fendi SS13 collection features pyramid studded chunky heels and layers of frontal leather on the front vamp incorporated into a plethora of styles.
This style has the loose and wide ankle strap straddled with side studs, is just perfect with classie jeans and as an everyday shoe and perfect to keep the chill off in over air-conditioned restaurants.
The three-layered look is much more fun; playful, relaxed and colourful and it will go with anything you love.
Be careful; these shoes are hot. These heels are a real statement and the strap zooms down with such steep velocity towards all that gold and black. that you might forget to wear something above those heels!
Finishing off with timeless elegance, this most ladylike combination is perfect for that special date, it will make you feel so special! 

We definitely love Fendi's new collection!

What to do: Crazy Bear - Top Thai!

Even out of town you can find swanky places. A lover of Thai food, I recently went to the Thai restaurant at the Crazy Bear in Beaconsfield for a celebration. Expensive but wow is it worth it!

I have never seen a menu so huge. You literally are spoilt for choice. But the army of impeccable waiting staff are there at your very beck and call and can help with recommendations.

The restaurant itself is a converted barn with dark exposed beams and luxurious looking velvet devore wallpaper in both dark green and red. The atmosphere is cosy yet comfortable with quirks like the Thai style candleholders of a woman bending over with a candle perched on her back.

We started with some prawn and chive dumplings and some black cod with black beans whilst we perused the rest of the menu, both perfection. Then we had duck spring rolls (phenomenal) and scallop on glass noodles, which you order in ones (delightful).

For main courses we had chicken and Thai aubergine curry as well as ostrich stir fry with green beans with egg fried rice and pak choi on the side. Lucky we both like spicy food as these were rather hot but totally delicious.  

There’s an extensive wine menu to wash it all down with and cocktails too. Watch out though as the bar gets really busy!

Retro Revival

After the summer’s heavily fifties inspired fashions, it seems that it is now time to move forward a decade and pay homage to the swinging sixties. Shift dresses, retro prints and just a hint of psychedelia are at the forefront of this autumn trend.
Jonathan Saunders’ jewel tone collection, below, embodies an up to date twist on sixties chic. With retro prints and peter pan collars, these are timeless pieces with a healthy dose of fashion nostalgia. 

Work the look into your winter wardrobe with this bold print shirt from Miu Miu. A psychedelic floral pattern to contend with!

To add a modern edge to the look, wear over your best skinnies and brogues, or to give full power to the period style, pair with a clashing print skirt from Jonathan Saunders.

Top of my personal wishlist is this boxy print top from Missoni. The nostalgic colour scheme will work perfectly with all the prettiest of the seasons’ nude accessories.

But for the most authentic styling, the ideal partner has to be these cropped trousers by Miu Miu. Although the turquoise tailoring will work equally well with a semi-sheer blouse and patent stilettos.

If you aren’t ready to go the whole hog quite yet, then channel the trend with this retro-chic mini satchel from Chloe. A polished take on 60s style patchwork that will carry you through day and evening in true groovy style!

Layer Away

As fashion looks towards next spring and summer, the rest of us are just starting to bring out our autumn wardrobes and put together our own takes on the season’s biggest trends. This autumn layering is definitely the one to watch. Throughout the AW12 catwalks the tunic plus trousers trend was compellingly pervasive, as seen below at Hussein Chalayan.

Keep the trousers slim fitting and elegantly long for the most modern look, with ankle boots for day and sleek stiletto heels for evening.

If you’re going to embrace the trend you might as well go all out, so why not go bold in this wool-twill, J.Crew shift in bright cherry red. 

The perfect pairing for these khaki and floral camo-print trousers from Thakoon Addition.

Play with length in A.L.C.’s calf skimming shirt dress, in a super sunny shade that will see you all the way through the colder seasons.

One of the great aspects of layering is getting to play with opacity; sheer fabrics are great for working the demure/sexy boundary, layered-style. Try this tunic from Kain, the sheer finish plays up the super loose fit and the embroidery adds depth and detail.

Pair with your favourite slim fit trousers. Personally I have my heart set on this berry-tone stretch leather pair from Helmut Lang. That’s two hot trends in one look!

Girl's crush: Spijkers en Spijkers

Another day, another show. Yesterday afternoon we sat front row at Spijkers en Spijkers.
The fashion label founded by Dutch twins Truus and Riet Spijkers, are continuing the current 20s trend into spring/summer 13 with their new collection. 

In bright dessert colours, slim, flapper style dresses and Art Deco geometric shapes impressed the guests at Vauxhall Fashion Scout. 

The collection, named La Femme Paysage, is inspired by the work of Sonia Delaunay.


Hemyca 'Pure Spirit' SS2013 Show

Hemyca has a name for creating clothes for 'real' women, so I was particularly excited to see what they would bring out for next season. Taking place at 1508, the home of Tom Ford in Victoria, their collection drew on the struggle of the 'pure spirit' in today's society - the ongoing push-pull that one's conscience feels between their morality and the urges of the everyday world.

The contrast is embodied in the transparent white and pink pieces representing the innocence of the puritan, floaty chiffon pieces focusing on modesty whilst empowerment is visible in the jewelled embellishment on darker pieces and the peforated leather in numerous pieces.

One of the highlights of the show was Leah Weller who modelled a bespoke pink evening dress which was created to be auctioned in aid of Breast Cancer Awareness month in October at the Pink Ribbon Ball. Her father Paul came along to support her too, sitting front row.

Models had poker straight long hair one of the come back trends for this season for hair, whilst eyes were made up with paper eyelashes giving a goth look for those with dark hair and black outfits. Shoes were kept simple - mainly towering black heels - many adorned with Blingbacks - jewelled embellishments for the back of the heel.

Hemyca is based in Chelsea

Love of the week: Timur Kim

London Fashion Week at last. It's the time of the year where London lights up with new designers and amazing couture dresses. Our first show of the season was Timur Kim. His spring/summer 13 collection floated through the grand chapel at Vauxhall Fashion Scout in denim blue hues, with a distinctly 70s vibe.

Fabric is at the centre of the latest collection from the Central Saint Martins graduate with unusual mixtures which included denim paired with lace and silk for an elegant touch to the usually utilitarian material. Can I have the second outfit please?

To Clutch..

The crook-of-the-arm bag carrying technique has been the accepted method for fashionistas for a while now (how else to simultaneously utilise both Blackberry and latte?), but recently, more ingenious ways to tote have slowly been creeping into the repertoire of the catwalks: I’m talking about the trend to clutch.
After all, nothing finishes off an outfit like a great bag; to channel a trend, brighten up a trusty Little Black Dress or add a touch of sparkle. This season, the trendiest, brightest, sparkliest all come in clutch form.

They don’t come much bolder than this hot studded number from Christian Louboutin. In leopard print pony skin, the red leather interior also features an Ipad pocket. The ultimate way to transport your tablet from meeting to meeting, and the very hottest accompaniment to those post-work drinks.

For a more demure daytime clutch, I love the 31 Minute Bag from 3.1 Phillip Lim. Big enough to cope with all your daily essentials and with a wrist strap to allay hand fatigue. In classic navy leather with silver hardware, the relaxed finish is great for off-duty wear.

After a touch of the exotic? Grab this crocodile envelope clutch from Nancy Gonzalez. Oversized and sleek, it is chic for evening but can also feasibly be translated into daywear with it’s slate grey palette.

Alternatively, go all out for evening with a Baroque inspired edition of Alexander McQueen’s iconic knuckle duster clutch. Incorporating an elaborate gold tone crest and tapestry style embroidery, this is pure extravagance!

If you’re planning to take a note from autumns top berry toned trend, then pick up the burgundy version of the classic Belle Du Jour clutch from Yves Saint Laurent. With a glossy textured leather finish and subtle embossed logo, chic and timeless is the name of the game here. 

So if there was ever any doubt in the question ‘to clutch or not to clutch?’, my vote at least, is strongly in the affirmative!

Food Spectrum's Free Company @ The Endurance

I was really excited to read that The Endurance pub in the heart of Soho was starting a concept called Food Spectrum whereby upcoming chefs take over the kitchen for a month or so and you can then try their delicious food. In residence at the moment is Free Company, which is a collective of chefs that specialise in pop-ups. It consists of three in total - David Boycott, Billy Stock and Josh Rhodes, which will sure be names to watch in the future from the standard of food I ate.

They claim to bring inventive, modern British food to Berwick Street and yup, they have done it! It was by far one of my best lunches in the vicinity at any rate. All the staff were exceptionally hospitable, so you don't mind paying the 12.5% service charge as it really is faultless.

For just £1 a head you can start the meal with fresh bread and hand salted butter, which is 'limitless' as they top you up with as much as you would like, perfect for padding out a couple of dishes.  One can chooose a big main dish or opt for several smaller ones a la tapas style, which suits best if you like to try lots of different things and demonstrates the depth of their skills.

First off, we tried roasted and pickled beetroot with puree, beet leaves and goats cheese: a feast for the eye with it's jewelled beetroot, green leaves and white cheese. A wonderful explosion of flavours on the tongue and a treat for vegetarians that often get same old same old options. Another of the veggie dishes we chose was the king oyster mushroom with braised shallot, migas (Spanish for breadcrumbs) - toasted - and a mash. Once again it was beautifully presented, well executed with a perfect balance of all the elements to get enough bits on each forkful. 

For my carnivore friend, we ordered the chicken drumstick, replete with girolle and roasted garlic gnocchi. Not normally a fan of these double carb bites which can often be cloying too heavy and tasteless, these were
more melt in the mouth style, and were a really refreshingly new accompaniment to the chicken drumstick with the woody girolles. Lastly, the other meat dish we ate was braised pork cheek with cauliflower and roasted pumkin with a mosctel sauce, again a perfect combination for a just-so dish with warm, rich flavours.

All in all, I think one of the keys to their success is in the not trying too hard - not meddling with established combinations too much,  not trying to use too many or too whackier an ingredient and knowing the right amount of varying flavours one plate can take. These boys know that. Go before it goes!
