Gucci Gets Tough










Spring 2012 is welcoming an influx of sturdy, structured mini bags, and this opulent offering from Gucci represents all that is divinely decadent about the upcoming box clutch trend.

Heavily inspired by ‘the opulence of the era of hedonism’, the clutch is part of Gucci’s Hard Deco Spring 2012 collection, and its gold equestrian tassel, crystal embellishment and vintage perfume bottle shape result in one fiesty clutch packed full of Gucci glamour.

Glove Is In The Air

Glove weather is officially upon us.  
Kurt Geiger has done a superb job of sexing up the ever-cozy traditional mitten with their new 
KG Isla gloves – a stylish and sophisticated pair of mittens featuring sleek black leather, snuggly knit cuff and gold hardware, and providing firm proof that maximum hand warmth need not be sacrificed in the face of fashion.
In a delicate balance of form and function, the KG Isla mittens are not only a treat on the eyes but also have the additional benefit of practicality. The soft leather unzips to reveal knitted fingerless gloves, solving that age-old mitten dilemma of trapped fingers. Fashionable and iPhone-friendly!

Karl Lagerfeld launches ‘Karl’

















Want to know the next vital date for your style diary? Mouses at the ready, because January 25th 2012 will mark the day when monochrome-loving Chanel director Karl Lagerfeld will be launching his new affordable ‘Karl’ line exclusively at Net-a-Porter.

The 100 piece rock-and-roll themed collection will include everyone’s favourite Lagerfeld staples: leather skirts, bib-front shirts, detachable collars, luxe sportswear and plenty of black black black, but the difference will be in the affordability, with price points starting as low as £50.
