Bad girl-palooza Fall 2008
Good girls are hot, Bad girls are hotter. It doesn't get badder than Alice Dellal.
Chanelling my inner rock chic, its bad girl-palooza this fall and I'm going off the deep end. Key pieces are Leather-esque pants, spray on jeans , leather bandage skirts, black lace a la Prada SS09, The Row t shirts a la MK and Ashley Olsen and Karl Lagerfeld cigarette pants. Chains, zips and studs are excellent embellishments for the success of this look and accessories such as the ankle boots, fetish heels from Balenciaga and Azzedine Alaia.
Azzedine Alaia Gladiator sandals
Alexander Wang SS09
Alexander Wang and Erin Wasson
Alexander Wang is the new bad girl poster boy, swapping muses from Erin Wasson to Alice Dellal, his SS09 collection at New york fashion week whetted the appetites of young fashion junkies. There is an equally fab concession in selfridges, trust that i'll be stalking it. This fall, Topshop's premium line, Unique is packed with silk shirts, slouchy cardies, capes, and lots of leather, zips and studs.
Marc by Marc T shirt Fall 2008
I would naturally represent this baditude movement in shabby chic style; 'off the deep end' Marc by Marc jacobs tee, spray on jeans, super high ankle boots, black boyfriend blazer - dark eyeliner and red lipstick to go, throw on the Chanel clutch, no...drop the Chanel clutch, pile on the gold chains and off i go. This is easy to pull off for those days i just cannot be bothered to maintain LLBC look (Le Left Bank Chic). So much for being high maintenance.
