I'm back from France after soaking up the last rays of summer sun; school has reared its ugly head. You would have found me at the poolside with a book in my hand, The Devotion of Suspect X came to a devastating cliffhanger with me begging for a sequel, but I then moved onto a classic: Memoirs of a Geisha by Arthur Golden.
As you may or may not know, I am a bit of an Orientalist. I love Chinese and Japanese art, style and history. This approaching season, Oriental is back, and hopefully to stay!
Here are some of my favourite Oriental styled pieces of the season:
|Miu Miu F/W RTW 2011 wool and sequin coat.|
|Ralph Lauren silk shantung embroidered smoking jacket.|
|Beading and sparkles play a huge part in this trend.|
Chanel Pre-F/W 2010 Collection.
|Hussein Chalayan Kaikoku A/W Collection|
|Embroidered silk jacket - Topshop|
|Printed Kimono with crochet hemming - Free People|
|Kimchi & Blue library skirt - Urban Outfitters|
|MM6 Wide leg trousers - Urban Outfitters|
|Dress - Sara Phillips (Image courtesy of RUSSH)|
Hope your as excited for the return of the oriental this coming season as I am!
Have a great day!
