diane in no. 21


Style icon extraordinaire, Diane Kruger, who frequently makes the list of the world's most stylish people, doesn't disappoint in a wonderfully sweet lemon-meriengue lace dress from No. 21's Prefall 2011 collection.  The pale yellow works wonders against her subtly tan skin and gold, tousled locks.

represent!

It's always reassuring when you see the designer(s) behind a brand actually wearing their own designs, and the dynamic duo behind sass & bide, Heidi and Sarah-Jane, never fail to impress when dressed in pieces from their line.  Here they are, enviously stylish as ever, taking their final bow at LFW AW'11.  Represent!

comfort + cool

One of our absolute favourites in the Electricsekki office is definitely Beau Coops, the genius partnership between stylish duo, Beau and Cooper.  Four things we love most about Beau Coops: the shoes are always super edgy without going overboard, the quality is excellent as they are produced in Italy, the comfort level of their heels are comparable to wearing a sneaker (seriously), and the price is so right!
 

Our two favourite styles from their current collection are classic signature looks from this Aussie label.  Wedge? Check! Leather? Check! Minimalist? Check!


Beau Coops is available at i.t., Bauhaus,  Ztampz, Magenta and Initial for SS '11.

shu qi hearts ksubi, sass & bide

Famed international movie-star, the beautiful Shu Qi, wears ksubi and sass & bide like it's her second skin.  Say it with us: she looks phenomenal in ksubi's CAM Blazer and sass & bide's BRING IT TO ME pantsuit, which she pairs nonchanlantly with killer red lips and spiked Louboutins.

twenty8twelve @ coterie

The lovely Miller sisters have been trouping around their stall at Coterie in NY recently, talking to customers about their fabulous (as usual) FW '11 collection of super-wearable silk shirts, ultra cute little dresses and tailored blazers that really hit the spot.  We love how Sienna paired a loose grey sweater with A-line shorts and ankle boots, and how sister Savannah cinched her waist in with a spot on-trend metal-accented belt.

sass & bide fw '11: urban warriors

The verdict is in and the critics are applauding sass & bide's genius FW '11 collection, showcasing Heidi & Sarah Jane's modern take on the uniform of "urban warriors".  Highlights of the show?  The electric coral and fuschia hues, figure-flattering ikat prints, the diverse mix of cultural references and expert drapery.  The most amazing thing about the show, however, is that we see ourselves managing to rock these pieces both at the office and at some idyllic island getaway.  Bonus-points for wearability!

robert clergerie @ lane crawford


Last night, Lane Crawford hosted a meet-and-greet with legendary footwear designer, Monsieur Robert Clergerie, at their flagship ifc store. Surrounded by captivating photographs snapped by Laurent Segretier of Monsieur Clergerie at work in his studio, the designer himself delightfully spent the evening charming his sea of fans. It's no secret that we at Electricsekki harbour lustful desires for Lane Crawford's covetable shoe collection, and the Clergeries we saw on display yesterday evening were of no exception!  Clergie designs with a refreshing sense of ease and simplicity, while paying unique attention to comfort and practicality; his designs fit seamlessly into any modern woman's shoe collection.

sequins for day!


Have you ever fallen for a stellar sequin piece, but couldn't quite justify buying it because the amount of wear you would get out of it turned out too be too little?  Well, Virgine Castaway has the answer to your guilt-ridden problems!  Shown here, styled down with denim, flat lace-up boots, and sporty accents, wearing sequins in the daytime suddenly seems like such a no-brainer!



Have a peep at the rest of her drool-worthy collection HERE!

blue on the inside


Blue is the hottest colour for SS11, but if you are't up for wearing it on the outside, stay on trend by wearing it on the inside!  These gorgeous lingerie pieces from Huit are comfortable, flattering and oh so on trend!

ecoya sorrento occasion jars


If you ask us, there's really nothing better than coming home after a long day to a glass of vino and nice book under the glow of luxurious candlelight.  Double points if the candle is scented.  That's why we love ECOYA's 75hr Sorrento Occasion Jars; they come in delicious scents such as French Pear, Sweat Pea & Jasmine, Lemongrass & Ginger, Lotus Flower, Vanilla Bean and Wild Frangipani.  All the candles are made from natural soy wax and hand-poured into a sand, soda ash and lime glass jar.  Pure heaven!
