I Spy... Mary Katrantzou's Prints

Mary Katrantzou's eponymous label has gone from strength-to-strength since it's launch at London Fashion Week 2008.  The St. Martins graduate has accumulated a host of awards along the way and has managed to create a unique brand that can be identified instantly.  Think bold, illusory digital prints, vivid colours and ladylike tailoring.

You need to see it to understand, so without further ado, here are my picks from the AW12 collection.
Oh and P.S, I spy HB pencils, phone dials, and a typewriter, do you?

My favourite piece from the collection

You need to check out the embroidery on the above dress, it's simply incredible!

Queen's Jubilee Fashion

I forgot to click 'Publish'! Oh well only a few weeks late.

So thanks to the Diamond Jubilee Concert we have a whole host of new royal/celebrity outfits.

Some say it was boring, but I think Kate Middleton was stunning in Alexander McQueen's lace dress.

Wow, Grace Jones
Much less wow, Cheryl Cole

The Queen's Diamond Jubilee Fashion Highlights

With celebrations for the Queen's Diamond Jubilee kicking off yesterday, here's a round-up of the fashion highlights so far:

Majestic aboard The Spririt of Chartwell
*Incidentally, just moments after posting this, my boyfriend rang to tell me that he had been given the rare opportunity to go onboard the Spirit of Chartwell at Greenwich dock after the Queen had descended.*

The Queen is wearing an outfit created by her senior dresser, Angela Kelly.

Kate, William and Harry
Kate is wearing Alexander McQueen (approx. £1200).

Pippa Middleton looking nautical in Orla Kiely (approx. £345)

Princesses Eugenie and Beatrice at the Derby yesterday.  Take note of Princess Eugenie's awesome Union Jack nail wraps.
