A LITTLE EXTRA PADDING NEVER HURT

Every time I wear this padded dress, I feel like I’m back in early high school with my bra stuffed with tissues; I’ll admit I only tried that trick once, although I could probably still do with some extra stuffing now. I really love the disproportion this dress creates and when you wear a jacket or coat over, the disproportion is even greater then. I also love the slight metallic sheen in the fabric, which you can only just faintly see in the photos. And the bag that fits hardly anything, it is one of my favourites, purely because its’ strap is a safety belt.

Paris based label Jacquemus by French designer Simon Porte Jacquemus is a new favourite of mine. His latest collection ‘La Piscine’ (“pool” in  French) features crisp, tailored silhouettes in a limited colour palette of black, navy, red, white and blue allowing for all pieces to be mixed and matched with each other. Shirts and cropped jackets in boxy cuts as well as oversized coats and simple skirts are all shapes that I love, and they all can be found in this collection!

Last week I attended the highly anticipated One Fell Swoop runway show at the old Hoyts Cinema One in Carillon City, a space which has been unseen since 1983. It was there that design duo, Nikolina Ergic and Daniel Romanin (in their first ever solo show) showcased their latest Spring/Summer collection ‘Making It Up As You Go’. Opening the show in a stunning white floor-length gown was a very familiar face, Australian model Stef Bambi Northwood-Blyth.

The show was wonderful and the collection exceedingly beautiful. There was a mixture of day- and evening wear in the thirty looks shown; their delicate fabrics and cuts radiated femininity and ethereality, elements that are so very One Fell Swoop. Hair was styled by Head Studio and make-up by the very talented Ashley Brockman Creative.

I’ve posted up a few of my favourite looks from the collection, although there are plenty more that I love! To see the collection in its’ entirety, click here.

It was such an incredible night. I’m already looking forward to seeing what their next collection brings!
