This collection made me a little confused. I know for sure I hated half of it. The footwear is ridiculous I don't understand. What's with those leather metallic socks?
I love the makeup, though. The bare face, the bright bold lip with tiny accent on the cupid's bow, the choppy baby bangs. Anyway, here are some backstage shots which I think are visually appealing by nature.
The bag looks like a mixture between Céline and The Row, with a final Prada touch.
I must say that those sunglasses with flowers are what I love most from the collection. Anyway, I honestly want to hear your thoughts on this.

It's a clutch attached to a tote in a see through pouch. Efficient? Yes. Stylish? Yes.
One of the most talked about bag at MFW, a small zippered cube suspended from a hand strap. It's still nameless, according to Vogue.com.

Sexy. Props to the footwear at this season's show. I mean, look at these. They just couldn't get any more perfect. From the exotic skin to the hardware and to the arch of the heel. They pretty much left me speechless.
Lots and lots of solids, with exaggerated ruffles and bold jewelry. I love. Such a refreshment to the eyes seeing shades of hot pinks, cobalt blues, citrus yellows, and salmons, attaching ruffles to chic pant suits.

Remember Fall 2008 Chanel and Spring 2012 Louis Vuitton both presented along with a carousel? The set of 'Pomp and Pleasure' happens to be my third favorite designer merry-go-round created by Michael Howells for the spring/summer 2013 collection by Anya Hindmarch.
These two above are hands down my favorite clutches this season! You all know why. Anyway, in Singapore they're located at Takashimaya Department Store, and hopefully they will carry these two. Especially the apple clutch.
And yes, Poppy Delevigne carried it to the show. Her fellow FROW darling Olivia Palermo looks so gorgeous at the show, wearing a Reiss jacket. Plus, I'm loving how she accessorize with brooches on each lapel and no necklaces. You might want to check out this brooch by ASOS to recreate her style.

The graphic floral print on these shorts was so daring and pretty, I had to get it as soon as I saw it! Well, I'm not exactly a designer right now I don't draw, I don't cut fabrics, but I had to get my hands on most of the decision made for my recent label, Poise24. The most fun thing is to choose and buy fabrics. I love the chance to be able to picture what a certain fabric would look like on what style and make it come true. And then see people wear it on photographs, which my readers will email me or tag me on Instagram sometimes. Such a happy moment!
Anyway, here's a couple of shots taken in Singapore a couple weeks back. The sleeveless tee is from H&M, bracelet from Bottega Veneta and the sunglasses are Dior.
Here's my new Proenza Schouler Chain Wallet in lemon and a rose gold bracelet from my love. Can't wait to fly back to Singapore. My next trip is gonna be on mid-October. Hope to see you all there!
The shorts are part of Poise24 new collection which launches this Friday. Don't miss it!

There! You're seeing the latest version of the Del Rey, in Spring Summer 2013 design motifs featuring a floral gecko theme in leather. But that's not what I want to share with you in the first place.
It's about this extraordinary Willow Tote (carried by Kate Moss below), a structured bag featuring the signature Mulberry Postman’s Lock, zips and padlock fob. Influenced by Mulberry's history of producing beautiful yet functional bags, the tote has a front face envelope clutch that can be zip-detached, fulfilling two multi-wear functions in one style.
The Willow Clutch also comes as a standalone option, oversizing the proportions to fully embrace the simplicity of the shape. Available in a myriad of seasonal tones, it is also introduced in luxuriously glossy Alligator in White or Black.

Burberry was one word: amazing. Let's start with the show look. I'm absolutely addicted to those Siren red lip with soft definition plus those almost bare eyes.
The clothes features a lot of mini/cropped capes, bombers and trenches whatever you may call it. Everything was so strong and feminine. Mr. Bailey also came up with the corseted top in blue satin with peplum details (second picture on the right) that I think would look so good on petite framed ladies. Think of Miroslava Duma and maybe Mary-Kate Olsen and.. me!
These two remains to be the defining looks of the show, I would say. Metallics, color blocking, capes, point toe wedges with an ankle strap. Best show in London this season.
Oh and in case you're wondering, here's a list of the soundtrack during the livestream. Brilliant choice of songs. Extremely addictive.
