A/W 14 Trends - Woodland Fairytale

R continues her pick of the A/W 14 trends with Woodland Fairytale

Next up in my run down of A/W 14 trends worth investing in, is Woodland Fairytale. Granted it's not the catchy-est of names, but it just about sums up the fantasy and earthy beauty that we saw scampering across the catwalks. 

Mary Katranzou

London ripped with excitement as Mary unveiled her latest edition of intricate print work and sculpted shapes. A dark and decadent note was struck as grounded colours and Ancient Greek symbols combined with dizzying results. 

Key Pieces:

Jewel colour dresses
Ankle boots
Embroidered jumper

Alexander McQueen

Drama and decadence ruled on the McQueen catwalk. Luxurious swathes of fur and feathers cascaded over ethereal models and set the tone for a autumn winter filled with magic. Gothic and suggestive with moments of occultish whimsy - Sabrina has grown up.

Key Pieces:

-Broderie anglais dress
-Feather trimmed jacket
-Pussy bow shirt

Saint Laurent

Towing the line between dream and nightmare, Hedi Slimane curated an other-worldly collection - littering the catwalk with fashion fantasies both bright and dark. With contributions from conceptual artist John Baldessari, Slimane casts a grunge eye over an otherwise glossy look. 

Key Pieces:

-Embellished everything
-Go Go boots 

Beauty: Embrace your dark side and stock up on kohl and gun metal metallic eyeshadow. Keep lips nude and suggestive for a 'just off the catwalk' finish.

Pins of the Week - Lazy Days

Time for another Pins of the Week

As we approach the weekend my thoughts have turned to lazy mornings, long brunches and evenings filled with food and glasses of chilled white wine. As always I turned to Pinterest for inspiration...

Check out the R~A~J~E boards for more inspiration.
