Millie Brown was my last click of the day, the light was almost gone, my fingers were ice-cold and I had lost all sensations to them.
I had packed my camera and was walking away when I saw Millie listening to her iPod sitting on the bench. An artist herself (you can see her work here),Millie spends most of her time between UK and USA. Dream job!
I love how she has combined a vintage sweater, J Brand Jeans with beautiful warm colored Oscar de la Renta Jacket with Black Wedge boots. I always like the equation of One statement piece at a time and it works here. You can’t really see here, but her accessories are Dominic Jones which is a must see, so be sure to click on that link.
This Ikat print Oscar de la Renta jacket is from the Spring 2005 collection, but the Biker jacket has made such a strong revival that you may be able to get your hand on various textures and print, like this Clover Canyon printed jacket crepe de chine jacket.
Sofia Sanchez Barrenchea has been popping up my radar through various researches. She is a New York based Argentinian Creative Director and Graphic designer for various brands.
I actually spotted her through my research for unique local designers and came across this brilliant website called UnderOurSky. A website promoting Argentinian Designers. Upon researching I came across, the website is owned by three sisters, Sofia,Lucia and Catalina.All of them based in 3 different cities: New York, Paris and Buenos Aires.Lucia, a CSM graduate has interned worked with Balenciaga,Isabel Marant, and many more so Fashion is running in the core of this sister trio.
Sofia Sanchez works on ensuring the designers from her home country reaches beyond geographical boundaries (something I always work with on trendbridged.com) thus UnderOurSky.com was born.
Her style is not run of the mill,and actually quite hard to nail, but I know she chooses comfort over style most of the time (I like) and wears no to minimal makeup most days unless meeting someone. (With that natural dewy skin, I would never wear makeup! Click here for Dewy Makeup Tutorial). Special attention to the well-defined brows.
You can see influences of eclectic and patterns with rugged leather jacket and statement shoes which is quite out there and on the other side, there is a classic monochrome look in a white shirt and black cape.
I hope most of you are familiar with this Russian Beauty Ulyana Sergeenko by now, if not…Sigh….what can I say to you lot!Beter read on to catch up!
This damsel is not just a pretty face,she is the designer behind the eponymous label Ulyana Sergeenko, a photographer, a blogger and stylist, she is a woman who has her delicate hands in every pie…and every pie tastes as beautiful as the first one.
Of course one would think, being the wife of a Russian Insurance Mogul, makes things so much easier, but you can’t take the credit away from Ulyana at any point of time.Her Fall 2012 show was scheduled smack in the middle of Chanel and Armani Privé show and attracted all the top editors and celebrity in the front row,ultimately resulting in a standing ovation for this neophyte designer.Her presence in the Fashion Couture world was established right there.
Her style is very vintage late 40′s-early 50′s, with the floral bouquet print, the babushka-type headscarves, the pin-up girl demure figure complemented with full skirts and cashmere sweaters teamed with the most perfectly crafted Cloche hats. I honestly can’t seem to get enough of her. The porcelain skin complimenting the red pout and quintessential 50′s cat eye is an inspiration for many around the world. If only we could dress like that everyday and still look different!

We know this trend had to hit the stores sooner than later!
The Pyjama Print Twin set suit is probably one of the most easily adaptable trend which can be worn,considering printed pyjama pants were a rage in summer.
Remember the Moroccan Print Zara Trousers?Well there is a new version of it in cropped palazzo-esque wide leg trousers.Click on the Zara website here
This trend personally is not meant for me,but this girl rocks the look real well,with her pixie hair do and studded boots.The whole look in itsel, is not very out of the bed..yet relaxed.
In case you plan to wear this trend…wear them with some dead basic black pumps and style the hair with some sea salt spray to give it a tousled look.
