How to take summer into autumn with Day Birger et Mikkelson

 

Style tip DAY BIRGER ET MIKKELSON 01Here’s a simple style tip on how to take a summer dress into autumn.

I fell in love with the Day et Birger Mikkelson brand when I got to interview the founder and head designer Keld Mikkelson last year. (Read my post here.) Their edgy-meets-classic design sits exceptionally well with my (predominately conservative) style with quality always reigning supreme.

I haven’t been into the store in while so when this emailer crossed my desk, I could’t resist lingering longer. This simple style tip on how to take a look into autumn is such a simple trick, we could easily cut our wardrobe spend in half.

Autumn weather is tricky with chilly mornings followed by sweltering afternoons. And while we’re really not ready to surrender summer favourites yet, evenings do bring a significant mercurial dip.

Today’s style tip is to layer a textured jacket over a summer dress, pop on a pair of ankle boots and you’re autumn ready. The look whispers business meeting chic, yet still cool enough up add a streetstyle hashtag to your Insta feed.

What do you think of this little trick?

Happy Monday, stylish ones.
love & light

Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Cape Town 2017 Day 1

mercedes benz fashion week cape town 2017 20Last night AFI (African Fashion International) hosted Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Cape Town 2017, forthwith referred to as #MBFWCT17. A cold and rainy Camps Bay played host to a sleek event which had the fash pack out in droves. I twinned a grey import from China with Duncan Papè in Black Dog. I really should dedicate a whole post to but for now, lets talk fashion.

I missed out on an invitation to the opening show by Gavin Rajah, either because I’ve dropped in popularity or for my strong views about the brand. Either way, post-show comments revealed heavy D&G / Balenciaga flavours, peppered with Gucci, then polished off with a nice Puma Fenty x Rihanna. Oh, let me stop. Sour grapes are not appetising *tongue wedged firmly in cheek* and we all need to keep the lights on.

Moving swiftly along to the collections which had me mentally recalculating my self-employed income. Continue reading

Channeling Morticia Adams in a Zeitgeist black dress

Zeitgeist Black Dress 02

“A woman is meant to look like she effortlessly threw something on, then sashay into a party as if she couldn’t be bothered.” – Duncan Pape.  Enter this Zeitgeist  black dress.

I fell head over heels in love with the Black Dog brand at SA Menswear Week last year. Designed by stylist Maxine Mauerberger and model Dino Perotti, this street cool, alpha male collection was all I ever wanted from a South African brand. Edgy. Wearable. And Tailored! When I discovered that Maxine also created an offspring label which included a women’s line, I simply had to have something, anything! from her. Their workmanship and her style is that good. So I came to own this Zeitgeist black dress. Continue reading
