Superga X Luisaviaroma.

Can we take a moment to appreciate these dreamy Superga sneakers? When I first saw that Superga would have a special collection with online luxury retailer Luisaviaroma, I knew I had to get in on it (especially after missing the Superga and The Row’s collaboration a few years back 😦 ). These special editions come in velvet and canvas options, ribbon laces and a chunky platform. I can’t wait to wear them out!

    

And I recently spied Superga’s latest collaboration with accessory brand, Charlotte Simone, and the collection looks so cute!

Lots of Stripes.

Is there any pattern easier to wear than stripes? Whether it be vertical or horizontal, I’m a sucker for a bit of stripe action. There’s something really laidback and casual (which is definitely my style) about them, yet they never look lazy or messy. I also think stripes help add a bit of dimension to not only the clothes, but to the wearer as well.

While I do love me some stripes, do not be fooled: not all stripes are created equal, as the classic navy-white combination will always reign supreme (but that’s a post for another day).

Cardigans for Fall.

We may be in the throes of summer, but that doesn’t mean we can’t look forward to the coming season when temperatures will drop and we’ll be in need of something a little warmer. After my weekly roundup of the latest from net-a-porter, I saw a trend of thick knit cardigans (and jumpers) with various designs that’d look great come September when it’s cooler outside. There was one brand in particular that really stood out to me, Alanui, a newcomer to the site whose cardigans look especially warm and cosy, and would look especially comfy with jeans and sneakers.

RE/DONE.

There’s a new denim sheriff in town and it goes by the name of RE/DONE. Founded by Sean Barron and Jamie Mazur, RE/DONE is so much more than a denim company, having first started online before growing into the e-commerce brand it is today.

      

While I’ve never really been crazy about jeans – I only own one pair – when I first saw their jeans, there was something about them that I couldn’t ignore, so now naturally I’m in need of practically every pair they make, including one very chic denim mini skirt that reminds me of teenage style years. They recently started selling on net-a-porter (which is where I actually discovered them a few weeks ago – and yes my wish list is full of their pieces) and I’ve been spotting their jeans everywhere, ever since.

You’re sure to be seeing a lot more of RE/DONE in the future. Check them out here and here.

Kitri.

There’s a new brand I’m obsessed with and it goes by the name Kitri.

Kitri Logo

Born out of the inability to find well-made clothes that don’t cost an arm and a leg, Kitri was created to fill a void in the market for young professional women who didn’t want to sacrifice style just because their bank accounts didn’t agree – this is something every woman can relate to.

  

Naturally upon first glance at the dresses I fell head over heels in love with the collection and already started creating a wish list of pieces to buy once payday came around. So what exactly makes this brand so special? Well for one, the brand interacts directly with the customers meaning prices are much lower because there’s no “middle man”. Additionally, you can expect to find great designs that are feminine and girly but not too delicate, as well as staples every girl needs in her life.

What’s more is that with a limited number of pieces produced, you don’t have to worry about seeing someone else in the same outfit as you – another thing every woman can relate to – unless they are equally as stylish as you are 😉 PLUS, with an update collection coming once a week, you can be sure that your wardrobe is the freshest, chicest one around town.

Total Stud-Muffin.

I love studs. Cute, practical and subtle, stud earrings (especially the really small ones) go with all outfits. I’m always on the lookout for studs to wear as I find them to be less flashy and attention-grabbing, yet still able to be the finishing touch complete any look. These days studs are getting more delicate and coming in unique designs like the mismatched earring sets that I’m currently loving.

And speaking of studs, I’ve always wanted to get a second ear piercing but for whatever reason I haven’t. Therefore, by the end of the year I really hope that I’m finally able to take the plunge and get my second hole done – just think about all the more earrings I’d be able to wear!

Allude.

I’m not sure how long this brand has been on net-a-porter, but it recently caught my eye (thanks to its luxe and extensive knitwear collection that had me wanting to buy everything), and I’ve loved adding their pieces to my wish list.

                  

Founded in 1999 by Andrea Karg, Allude, is a Munich based luxury knitwear design house that focuses on creating comfortable but oh so chic pieces, primarily from cashmere, that though basics are nothing basic. These classic items, including sweaters, coats, trousers and more, are the perfect foundation for any luxury wardrobe.

Since its inception, the brand has only gone from strength to strength with loyal customers coming from all over the world.

      

Allude is definitely a brand that I’ll continue to look out for on net-a-porter as well as in other places, and that I hope to be shopping from very soon. For more information on Allude, you can check out their site here.
