Thanks to Demna Gvasalia‘s debut collection for Balenciaga in March 16 skiwear has become everyone’s winter must have.
Oversized puffer jackets that offer performance characteristics but are also fashionable.
The addition of slacks and sporty details such as chunky elastic trims, polo collars, and athletic stripes have created a laid back approach to our wardrobes with a touch of retro inspiration.
Soften the look with a pair of hells or an embellished ballet pump. Winter in Europe is dark and grey so why not inject a bit of colour into your looks too, think bold reds and deep hues of blue.
So embrace a new, informal edge that luxe sportswear brings and be fearless. Oh and Happy New Year everyone!
Last year Witchery’s First Edition debut collection was a celebrated success. This season Witchery launches their second First Edition collection, a capsule collection that embraces the return of the sixties and seventies with luxury fabrications and considered detail.
With a mixture of chunky outerwear and revealing pieces the collection taps into Europe’s retro revival. Think longline coats, new-length pencil skirts, reworked turtlenecks and the luxe fur bomber.
Don’t be overwhelmed with the oversize-ness of the collection. By adding a waist belt or a tight pencil skirt, as I’ve done so with my looks, I accentuate my curves and embrace my womanly figure. It’s all about creating a balance with the designs and silhouettes.
See part II tomorrow on My Life in Pink…
