embrace the lace

Lace up, sandal heel ankle boots are in Ladies. Wear them with the tightest jeans you can get into, sophisticated separates or a dress.
Please do not team with a body con.. I will find you.

Tailor's favorites are the Alaia leather lace-up sandals spotted multiple times on both Taylor and Carine

c&m by camilla and marc

A launch for the new C&M Camilla and Marc collection "Coachella Valley" was held at the Camilla & Marc HQ in Sydney. The new range will be in David Jones next week. Guests photographed wore mainly black, brown and white thought to be due to the current chilly Australian weather.
C&M was launched in 2007 and is the swimwear line that "reflects the beach lifestyle of Sydney with an elegant edge".

Vogue Australia's Christine Centenera wore tribal looking Kanye West shoes. Love or loath?
Statement necklaces seem to be a favorite of Camilla's, also wearing a statement neck piece to her last launch.
Love the fun, vibrant flower and fruit set up.

Have a look at the new collection below, it all seems very familiar. Stars are very Dolce and Gabbana 2011 and the brown/pink/black reminds me of the Zimmermann 2012 colours from Winter 2012. Not to mention the sheer check that looks like Maurie and Eve garnett fabric.

Louis Vuitton

Here is an edit of photographs from the Louis Vuitton party held on the 19th July to celebrate the opening of the new Maison. Guests included Fan Bingbing, Alexa Chung and Poppy Delevingne. I personally do not believe that there were any standout outfits amongst guests, usual fashionistas failed to impress me.
Have your say in the comments section.

The outfits from the Louis Vuitton Express arrival at the Bund in Shanghai were far more impressive.
