Buy it now: Bourgeois tomboy



Saint Laurent

A lovely new hybrid for me to geek over. Bourgeois tomboy (as demonstrated in the above ad by Saint Laurent) is a mix of three parts tomboy (precision tailoring, something denim, scruffy hair), with two parts old school poshness (bourgeois bag, bow-neck blouse). A good enough reason to stock up on lady bags, schoolboy blazers and vintage Cartier jewels I feel…

Too quirky (surely not)? Then consider the matching heels instead. In red and black suede with fetching leaf green heels, there’s more than a hint of Guy Bourdin about them.

Buy it now: Polished Punk



Rich reds and warm neutrals are on my radar this month (even though I’ve spent the last few weeks looking at ss13 colours – white, orange and Yves Klein blue are trending so far). I love the combination of Carven’s cheery red skirt and Kenzo’s vibrant printed scarf with Antipodium’s plastic-sleeved bomber. And also the contrast of Junya Watanabe’s abbreviated biker (only £272!) with McQueen’s chi-chi Heroine bag. Shaune Leane’s thorn ring adds unexpected drama.
