Heavy Metal

Metallic (or Lamé for those wanting to scoot back to the 70's) Mid Length Skirts are bang on in the trend stakes right now! Working in fashion this trend doesnt scare me at all but I can hear my mother saying 'hideous!'. Im blocking her little voice out and running out to get me one to pair back with a cool and kitch little sweat a la Gucci. And I'll be taking my fancy, depending on the day, of wearing it with flats, boots or heels. 
Who’d have thought such a 'loud' sartorial choice could be so easy to work into one's wardrobe - and that my friends is considered #winning!

I love the versatility of this chair…despite the fact that it was designed in the 50’s it can sit right at home with contemporary decor, in beach house or back in its original context under a beautiful Parker dining table.
However you like it, it works…
