Into the wild.

I felt really inspired by one of the new collections - 'Into The Wild' @ topshop.com
It's a combination of girly meets grunge; an aging fairytale of cobweb cardigans draped effortlessly across the frame, crystal-embellishment floating like midnight stars upon a stream of silky chiffon, layered beneath chunky knits and dark, damaged leather.
And of course, as much of a/w 2010 focuses on the woman, rather than simply the clothes, the 'look' they've embodied for this collection translates to me as... a dreamer, a wanderer, an ingenue with attitude - she has long matted hair that floats triumphantly upon the autumn breeze, she has dark crimson lips and an illuminating glow that flickers behind the eyes.






The key pieces I've picked up on are; tuff jackets teamed with floaty dresses, longer hem-lines, subtle iridescent fabrics, lace and sheer inserts, faux-fur, faded / damaged denim, lace-up ankle boots, kitten heels, chunky knits, woolly hats and animal-inspired prints.

Hope you guys liked this post, it's a little different from the usual but I haven't taken any good outfit posts lately and I didn't want you guys to think I'd disappeared off the face of the blogosphere again, tehe.

TTFN darlings!

(p.s. for any of you sleepless dreamers out there, well, there's a meteor shower happening at midnight. I'm staying up for it, don't even know what I'm expecting to see, probably nothing if all the clouds are in the way, but here's hoping for something magical...)

  5. such an amazing lookbook! i find it odd that they've photographed it in such a "manmade" location (i personally would've chosen somewhere more natural), but i'm still lusting after so many of the pieces...
