The mish mash of varying fabrics and textures worked so wonderfully in this collection. The intricate beading, embroidery and Eastern influences reminded me a lot of my old Malaysian aunties with their patchwork quilts and traditional beaded slippers. One thing is for sure, I wish so much that I laid my hands on a vintage Japanese silk bomber jacket when I was in Japan last.

This winter has been unusually cold for Perth. In comparing it to this time last year, I can remember it being quite cold at night but never during the day like it has been lately. So, I’ve had to look to other options in the way I dress as my usual stockings under skirts/shorts/dresses just isn’t keeping me warm enough this season.

I’ve never been much of a pants wearer but over the past month or so, I’ve come to slowly embrace them. They have always been a difficult one for me because either the fit wasn’t right, or I just didn’t think they suited me. However I’m starting to understand my body a bit more and getting to know what type of fit I like on me best. I found these vintage Comme ones on eBay; they’re a straight leg cut but I’ve rolled them up slightly to create a more tapered look, which I feel suits those with shorter frames better.

I’m pretty happy to have finally found a pair that I like and, they’ve been keeping me warm and snuggly, more so than stockings ever did!

It’s incredible Viktor & Rolf’s ability to create so many beautiful looks based on the one theme. I absolutely love this collection, purely for the silhouettes created with the exaggerated bows. Bows are a favourite of mine as they have, to me, always been a quintessential motif for femininity and prettiness.
