Odds and Ends

Bespoke - - HER KEY LOOK -

It may sound like an oxy­moronic mouth­ful but work­ing out how to pull off a ro­man­tic punk bo­hemian look should be a the top of your to do list this au­tumn.

When it comes to trends we have grown to rely on our friends at Net-a-porter to bring us up to speed. “The big story in fash­ion right now is in­di­vid­u­al­ism and per­sonal style,” says Lisa Aiken, the com­pany’s Re­tail Fash­ion Di­rec­tor. “Trends do ex­ist but putting to­gether a look should feel far more spon­ta­neous, as though you have ef­fort­lessly thrown to­gether a few dif­fer­ent ideas and ref­er­ence points.” Essen­tially, if you’re a bo­hemian at heart and you love a print maxi then go ahead and give it a darker, punk­ish twist by adding a splash of vel­vet. Per­haps even ground it with some heavy-duty an­kle boots. And if you re­ally want to go all out then throw in some fish­nets and a 1990s-es­que choker for good mea­sure. “One of my favourite new de­sign­ers is Magda Butrym,” con­tin­ues Aiken, “and she per­fectly cap­tures the mood us­ing cutouts and metal trims on what would oth­er­wise be a light-hearted cro­chet sum­mer dress.” There you have it.
