As I often tell people, one of my fafourite and most rewarding part of my hectic life is to be able to wear pieces designed by amazing creative minds. That is what captured my heart about Antonia Goy’s designs last time I met her at the showroom in The Ritz and yet again this time at Paris Fashion Week. I had been waiting for an opportunity to wear this dress made by her, and what better opportunity to wear it than an appointment with her?
Antonia’s AW10/11 collection was inspired by the lizards and the foldings of the earth and her SS11 collection captures the sculptural qualities of smoke. Ah I can’t tell you much but will let you know when her garments arrive. They certainly captured my heart! Can’t wait!!
At the Ritz, in my Antonia Goy silk Georgette dress, Manning Cartell velvet-trimmed blazer, vintage Prada belt and Marc Jacobs booties. And the next designer I’m going to introduce you to is none other than the stunning English-Brazilian It-girl-turned-shoe-designer: Charlotte Olympia Dellal. Her designs sky-rocketed to phenomenal status thanks to SJP who wore them religiously in Sex In the City.
Charlotte’s new collection is inspired by the colours of Rio. These snakeskin fruity pumps are too adorable for words! You would have seen my previous post on Charlotte here. It is almost impossible to think of a female celebrity who hasn’t worn her heels, a little like Sophia Kokosalaki (but dresses instead)…
Another achingly chic lady with a fablous accent and an envious shoe collection. Her shoes are so well made, by Italian hands of course. I cannot wait to stock her!
You know the best way to feel fat? Stand next to a model (especially if they’re in Louboutins). Again, in my favourite colour of the season- coral!
Ah, Paris, you inspire me to dress up. You inspire me to appreciate art, style and design. J’adore Paris!
