Oozing coolness, instant glam and underlining sex appeal is the brand new Leila Shams Spring Summer 2012 collection. I'd rather cover this raw young female talent than the Milan or Paris Spring Summer 2012 fashion week runway shows happening now.


Pre-order these neat pieces of dresses and tops from www.leilashams.com or wait for stores like Forward by revolve and Harvey Nichols to stock them up come January 2012

Betsey Johnson | Spring Summer 2012 New York Fashion Week



One of my few favourites at the Spring 2012 New York Fashion week - Betsey Johnson. Instead of the boring colour blocks, granny florals or stiff executive shift dresses or overwhelming party cake dresses we have seen over the past week on the New York Fashion week runways, this collection is a breath of fresh air. Phew!
Sexy, cheeky, naughty and all good girl gone bad look. Quite comparable to my favourite GUESS collection.

London Fashion Week for Spring Summer 2012 begins today. I can't wait for the Burberry Prorsum and Matthew Williamson shows. Above is a little flashback of the Burberry Prorsum Fall Winter 2007 runway show featuring my all-time favourite model Sasha Pivster or Sasha Pivovarova from the very first time I fell in love with the Burberry Prorsum brand which I had always hated for the silly beige tacky checks. View the complete London fashion week for Spring Summer 2012 schedule and designer listing here.

Romantic Ghosts

The ghost of past year's romance tromps the runway at Francesco Scognamiglio's Fall winter 2011 - 2012 runway show in Milan. 


You can only really feel and appreciate the warmth in winter when you are surrounded by all the cold, when
everything is painted snow white and you exhale white smoke when you breathe.


Winter or the end of the year is the best time to retrace the steps you have taken for the entire year and start counting your misfortunes and blessings with a open, honest mind. Time to do some soul searching now that the end of the year is near. What could you have done better this year or another year has passed with you and your beloved one and what would you do to make your relationship better and stronger?


I love winter, and Francesco Scognamiglio has chosen the correct pallet of colours for this winter - Faded rose pink and beiges, creams, wintry grey and whites. Francesco Scognamiglio has also chosen an abundance of frills, folds, wavy patterns on trousers, lace, crochet, a stunning metal gold rose belt with gold thorns on the arm holes matched with thigh-high strappy sequinned boots. 


The colour for me this winter will defintely be beige and pale pinks. I would gladly step away from dark and gloomy black and grays.


Winter is a time for reflection and a time to rekindle the warmth of love again.

Cowabunga - Burberry Prorsum

How cow you Christopher Bailey? Burberry Prorsum has enjoyed straight wins in a row for the past few seasons and now Christopher Bailey and team at the Burberry Prorsum house have done the most unspeakable thing ever known to their own household. If boring checks were the crime, that would have been fine. 


This Fall Winter 2011-2012 collection at Burberry Prorsum was all about cow herders and cow milkers complete with unflattering, shapeless and bulky knits and coats stuffed fat with too much fur just like fast cow herders and cow milkers - farmers overfed with dairy.


Oh cow you imagine how this season's Burberry Prorsum has pledged their allegiance to the great cow almighty god?

Rosie Huntington Whitley for Burberry "Body" Perfume

The sexiest ad ever which leaves little to imagination. I have always liked the idea of wearing nothing but just your birthday suit you were born with and a well-made trench coat. I am not a huge fan of Burberry perfumes but I will make an effort to try this one when it launches here in Singapore.


Perfume is just like second skin. I love my Stella by Stella McCartney, Parlez-Moi d'Amour by John Galliano and Elle by Yves Saint Laurent. 


What are your top 3 favorite perfumes?

Fall Winter Accessory Obsessions

Exotic skins have always been popular on fashion runways and increasingly so this Fall Winter 2011-2012. Snakeskin, especially python is a favorite with big-name designers such as Prada, Dolce & Gabbana, Cavalli, Burberry, Dior, Bvlgari and Jimmy Choo.


My fall winter must buy pieces will either be a stunning natural cream and beige colour large python snakeskin clutch from the Prada Fall Winter 2011 - 2012 collection or a stunningly royalty-worthy large germ stone clutch or small shoulder bag from the Dolce & Gabbana Fall Winter 2011 - 2012 runway collection as pictured below. 


Which is your must have accessory for Fall Winter 2011 - 2012 that you are eyeing?
