Designer fashion wishlist – Avenue 32
I have a tendency to carry really huge bags at most times, but I love the smaller, more compact little sister to the bestselling Pashli bag, a sort of high fashion satchel. It still has the defining details, like the extendable zip panels on the sides and the shoulder strap, but in a smaller size. It’s been updated for Spring with a snakeskin panel – a great way to try the print if you’re not a fan of all-over snake, which I think can look a bit 90s!
I fell completely in love with the Temperley Spring / Summer 2013 collection, full of big skirts, Dior New Look references, beautiful Riviera-esque resortwear, and a fab colour scheme of black, white, red and pale blue. I love this take on the transparent trend, with dramatic volume and a 50s feel. It’d look amazing with pointy heels and a bright coloured top.
Ever since I first saw these babies pop up on Pinterest I’ve been swooning over them. £150 is a lot to pay for a pair of flat sandals, but look at them, they’re winged! And they are leather. I think Ancient Greek Sandals may be one to watch – think of them as the new Swedish Hasbeens, but with more quirk and less clog!
I’ve been considering a strapless jumpsuit for a while – I’m such a dress girl that something like this goes against all my normal fashion rules, but there’s something very appealing about a different kind of all-in-one outfit. I love the louche, relaxed shape, which just needs some kind of huge necklace and wedge sandals to dress it up. It would be a real contrast to my usual look.
Aaah, c’mon, like I’d let a wishlist go by without at least one ‘Gemma’ dress! This baby by Antonio Marras has everything I normally look for. 50s shape, check! Pretty print, check! Nipped-in waist, check! Vintage feel, check! I love that it looks like something that could have been picked up at a tiny little beach boutique or holiday market for just a few quid, but you get the sizing and detailed construction of a designer piece, rather than the irritating ‘one size fits all’ of a cheapie.
