A Fashionable Pair: Audrey Hepburn & Hubert de Givenchy

Audrey Hepburn was Givenchy's muse. When Hubert de Givenchy found out that a Ms Audrey had booked in to see him for an appointment, he expected Ms Kathryn Hepburn to walk in. Instead, arrived a tall, petite woman with a boyish frame, who was very unlike any of the women Givenchy had worked with before. 




Audrey and Hubert formed a special bond that would see them working together for years to come. Audrey became quite the fashionista and would enjoy the style collaborations which were made between the two of them.

But what of Givenchy now? Givenchy's name remains synonymous with the elegance, charm and sophistication of its heyday. Here is a video from the fabulous Givenchy Fall Winter 2012 collection. A picture speaks a thousand words.



What are your favourite pieces?

Enjoy your week! I'm excited about trying on new eyewear at OPSM Hub and hope I find something really fabulous that's within my price range! If all goes well, I'll give you all the deets in a future post. Watch this space.

Yours in style,

French nautical

Ilove stripes, especially navy & white. It's very Parisian chic! My favourite Breton striped cashmere/silk blend sweater has been the absolute best investment of all time. 

There are trends that come and go and then there are classics. I tend to steer towards the classics. The striped boatneck sweater is yet another timeless piece which should live in everyone's closet.


I stumbled across some old pics of movie starlets wearing nautical stripes, such as my favourite style icon, Audrey Hepburn. Years have passed and the striped sweater still looks as fabulous as it did back in its heyday.








This sweater I'm wearing is by Australian label Bezoar. They seem to have fallen off the radar at present, so I hope that in the future I can purchase another one like this! 






This is my go-to outfit for comfort and style when I need to run some errands. What's yours?
Hoping that your weekend was fabulous and your week is even better!

Top 5: Miu Miu Edit S/S '19

Another live stream runway show I had the pleasure of viewing was the Miu Miu Spring/Summer '19 show live from Paris Fashion Week. A highlight included looks from the red carpet as worn by famous models, actresses and digital influences, such as Australia's very own Margaret Zhang. Another highlight included seeing the image projection of models onto the new Miu Miu logo. Although, seemingly "out there", it was a very interesting and exciting way to begin the show. 

I loved the bow details as seen on blouses, headbands, eyewear and shoes. Tailored blazers and coats from an array of luxe fabrics were seen in the majority of looks from the collection. 

The new Spring/Summer '19 Miu Miu collecion captures the very essence of the brand: feminine, chic and girly. Lots of sparkles, glitter and crystals featured in the new collection, an element that has become Miu Miu's signature. I couldn't help but capture tiny hints reminiscent of the 1920s "Flapper Girl&…

V & A "Balenciaga: Shaping Fashion Exhibition"

I am thrilled to announce that, thanks to London's Victoria and Albert Museum, a fabulous exhibition, "Balenciaga: Shaping Fashion" is coming to the Bendigo Arts Gallery this Winter. The exhibition is timely, as this year marks the centenary of the first Balenciaga fashion house. 

The exhibition will showcase the legacy of the house designer, Cristobel Balenciaga and will include his designs, which revolutionised what we know today as contemporary fashion. 

"Balenciaga: Shaping Fashion" opens August 17 until November 10, 2019 at Bendigo Arts Gallery, 42 View Street, Bendigo. 

Yours in style,
