F is For ….. Filles a Papa

Filles A Papa
Filles A Papa, conceived and designed by two sisters the brand tries to protray an instinctive, honest and spontaneous image. The clothing is created for girls who are confident, rebellious, playful and liberated. 

Filles A Papa
With this inspiration for their collections taken from Punk and Rock ‘n’ Roll culture the two sisters, Carol & Sarah, have created a collection of strong, assertive and sometimes assertive looks with an pinch of American sportswear but overall European Street Style Chic. 
Filles A Papa
With the sisters trying to emulate Debbie Harry’s cheekiness and Kim Gordon’s ageless glamour and I’m intrigued to see how this young brand develops. Classic clothing boundaries collapses between formal and casual, masculine and feminine. Sequins adorn utility shapes, oversized styles are paired with skinnier fits.
Filles A Papa
The overall aim i feel of the two sister designers is to have fun with fashion and not take themselves to seriously. Whilst researching them I found that a lot of their images where quite shocking and almost a bit graphic. But I do love their take on styling and use of bold prints, clash of formal and casual and oversized silhouettes. I think that Filles A Papa are a brand to keep and eye on.

From Day To Night Leather Trousers

How To Wear Leather Trousers
 
Whatever you call it; Leather, Pleather, Faux Leather or PVC it’s all the same and boy I do love a pair of Pleather trousers (my preferred noun). Pleathertrousers aren’t a new trend for Autumn Winter, the ones I am wearing are from 2012, but I wanted to show you that you can get your Pleather’son day and night.
 
 To keep it casual for day wear with trainers, converse or for when winter hits (sorry), clumpy boots and thick socks. These instantly give you a more casual look.
 
Leather Trousers For The Day
 
For nights go as wild as you like as pleather trousers look good with heels, flats, boots, wedges….. Etc. I love the look and love my pleathertrousers. How do you wear yours?

East Meets West…..


Mary Katrantz Ready To Wear Autumn Winter 2013
I am seeing a trend appearing in the recent London Fashion Week collections, graphic eastern prints on typically western silhouettes like the T-Shirt, and then graphic skyline prints on eastern silhouettes. The clash is style is completely confused but just looks soooo good! I love the bold statements that this micro trend is making especially if it’s in monochrome. Check it out!

Muted tones of greys and white came 1st, with enough different textured fabrics you could shake a stick at, then came black mixed in to give an amazing collection of wearable and beautiful pieces… My eyes are so happy they have seen this beauty I’m going to stop rabbiting on so you can see and enjoy the images of Pronenza Schouler collection, that was shown at New York Fashion Week, in piece.
