DUFFY


Wearing: Duffy Cashmere, rings from the THP SHOP, MIRLO and slides by Isabel Marant.

‘At home with Charlie May’ – Haha! Really the home is that of Shini Park; I invaded her much more photogenic house a few weeks ago to shoot a couple of my favourite cashmere Duffy pieces. I’ve been living in these knits at home, the knitted shorts are so comfortable and feel like more of a modern sweat pant really. Perfect for those nights spent outside enjoying the summer evening too. I just got back to London from a few days holiday in Devon and I made sure I spent every evening out under the stars! Now back to the grind as I have a new collection to finish :)

Duffy is available to buy on Net A Porter - enter at your peril ;)

THE NEW STAN SMITH PRIMEKNIT


Wearing: Charlie May baseball tee, Zara skirt, Adidas Stan Smiths, Love Aesthetics x Black Blessed bag, Céline sunglasses, THP rings and Mirlo cuff

Back to London with a bump, brunching, cycling around the city and generally just lapping up the sun. Wearing my typical all white, mesh on top and on my feet with my new Stan Smith PrimeKnits. I never really got onto the Stan Smiths, I was more about the superstars, until these babies; they’re airy and light and perfect for running around the city in the midday sun! Ready to get back to work now after spending the week on holiday. Happy to say I left my camera at home for ultimate recuperation, so you’ll have to just be content with my instagram for now. Don’t we all just prefer instagram anyway really?

RIPPED DENIM


Wearing: COS coat, Charlie May dress, Paige Denim jeans, Isabel Marant sandals, Acne sunnies, Larsson & Jennings watch, Mirlo ID cuff, Alexander Wang tote bag.

I never thought I’d be back on the ripped jeans bandwagon after leaving my teens, but it seems Paige denim has seen otherwise. I actually love them for summer, not only are they my token colour of white but actually feel pretty breezy and cool. Another convert! Trekking around West London for what was probably a Mount St Céline pilgrimage with Shini, finding marble staircases and draping Wisteria along the way. 

You’ll forgive me for being awol for the past week due to incredible meetings; sending off AW14 to the factory (and all the organisation that entails), and then my 26th birthday on Friday! I’m now writing to you from my home in Devon, very happy to be back here for a week to recharge my batteries, soaking up some sun and sea air and getting some inspiration for SS15.

WHITE SNEAKS


Wearing: Phillip Lim top and trousers, Adidas Superstars, Larsson & Jennings watch, MIRLO ring.

A more casual version of the all laser cut outfit I posted last week. My second look for My Wardrobe using these dreamy wide leg silk trousers with white sneaks, very 90s R&B flashbacks right now. I’ve been researching this a lot for SS15 so it was naturally going to rub off eventually, that and denim. Living in that too it would seem. But it’s not just me, white sneakers are appearing everywhere from editorials featuring Céline (J’ADORE) to Isabel Marant’s latest collection copying Stan Smiths (a twist I did NOT see coming). Between these and pool slides fashion’s taking a very firm but comfortable step forward for 2014 though, something I can’t get behind enough.

MALONE SOULIERS


Wearing: Mango coat, Charlie May layered mesh top, Hudson jeans, Malone Souliers pumps, Givenchy Obsedia, Mirlo Jewellery.

From one end of the spectrum to the other; proving I can be a lady when I put my mind to it. Temporarily swapping kicks for pumps, and quite happy to pull myself out of the all too comfortable routine.

I recently discovered this brand, Malone Souliers, an unapologetically feminine new footwear label that believes high heels to be magicians, creating transformations all over the body (I can agree on this point – oh hey, skinnier looking legs!). Pairing these beauties with some of my favourite gold from MIRLO and a delicate layered mesh, silk georgette top from my current collection.

WHITE OUT IN PARIS



Or East 17 tribute, in Paris, you decide. As much as I like to pull an all white look, this felt very boy-band-of-the-noughties era. Maybe it’s the addition of shiny new Adidas superstars, which I’ve been switching between with the Nike Air Force 1′s (as much as my stringent assistant claims they are the exact same thing, I disagree, they are totally different shoes!) Maybe even more different now they are covered in various stains from Paris nightlife :(. This quiet windy walled area was in Montparnasse, the more residential area of Paris. Whilst we were pulling our best editor-lost-in-suburbia looks, the streets were completely empty on a Sunday, unlike London.

ATEA



Pretending that spring is already upon us as the new collections land in store, I’ve already been bearing the cold, legs out, trying to ween myself back into non-thermal dressing. Which leads me to my new discovery, Atea, a brand after my own heart; neo sweaters, boyfriend shirts, and easy to wear skirts have me yearning for a hotter climate once again. Trying to plan the next holiday although all I have currently pencilled in is fashion week activities, excited about being in Paris for a full week come March though!

LEATHER SANDALS


Wearing: MaxMara coat, Charlie May blazer, COS tee, Hudson jeans, Isabel Marant sandals, Dr Martens bag, MIRLO necklace.

When is inappropriate footwear appropriate? I deem it to be so when you have a floor length cashmere coat to keep you warm, an extra jumper will help too. Mixed reactions on these babies but I can assure you, my toes are as happy as I am. Heading back to London today in time for new years. I think I’ve pretty much exhausted my outfits from the suitcase I brought down two weeks ago. Looking forward to being reunited with my wardrobe, a full speed internet connection and an empty fridge. So much overindulging when I’m at home; a bottomless wine glass and chocolate box in front of the TV and I’m officially ready to start working out again.

New Years Eve tomorrow! Thank you to those who joined the party in 2013, and an extra big hug to those who have been with me all along. I don’t want to get too sentimental  but what an awesome year it’s been! Already so much in store for January that I seriously can’t wait to share. Wishing you all a Happy New Years!

 

EVENING


Wearing: COS top, Zara trousers, Chloe heels, Bracher Emden clutch, MIRLO ID cuff.

On our first evening out in Malta, dressed in this new heavy silk top from COS that I knew was totally impractical when buying, but it seemed like the perfect minimal evening piece. Equally so with this Bracher Emden laser clutch, bright white and just as pristine, I think it was made for this outfit, or any all white ensemble.

THE POST FASHION WEEK SLOUCH


Wearing: IRO top and Labolsina bag from Girissima, Hudson Jeans, Topshop shoes, Acne sunglasses and MIRLO jewellery

Catching up on life after the show on Sunday, waking up early just to take Kobi for a walk in the peace and quiet without a lint roller or steam iron in sight! Haha just kidding – I’m already back in the studio and extremely happy with all the positive feedback! Already preparing my extensive behind the scenes post coming up next.. but first we need to catch up on all the shopping I’ve been doing since about two weeks ago..

I discovered Girissima recently and fell in love with the range of top european brands they house. I’ve already got my eyes on this camo Equipment blouse (print usually isn’t for me but Christopher Kane seems to have got me feeling otherwise). In the meantime I went for this super easy IRO padded tee and roomy Labolsina bag which is helpful for storing hats and scarves for when the weather turns. More to come from my midnight shopping habits but looking forward to posting regularly again, hope you missed me!
