Recently I've been absolutely obsessed with the designer Olympia Le-Tan. I majorly adored her Fall 14 ready-to-wear collection about this time last year, and have kind of rediscovered her work lately through the magic that is Tumblr. What I loved about her Fall 14 collection was that it was kind of magic-inspired, with lots of appliquéd playing cards, pink and red on black, and playboy bunny details, as well as a few Lolita-isms. My favourite runway look of all time will always be this one:
Black velvet, pink fluffy cardigan, headscarf, book clutch and card motifs... Could there be a more perfect ensemble? I think not!
Given I'm also obsessed with the combination of black and pastels in every possible context, no wonder I'm currently loving her Fall 15 read-to-wear collection. I adore the whimsy vibe and just the general aesthetic she created with the contrast between ditsy prints, floaty chiffon and ribbon, and then black, khaki and geometric patterns. Also don't even get me started on the book clutches, I have a whole post on that coming up soon!
Anyway, I thought I'd just share some of my favourite looks from the collection, which is pretty much every single look (apart from about five).
