Unfortunately there's a good six months before Kaelen's endearing collection comes into stores internationally. But as I look out of my window at London's rainy skyline, I will remember those pinks and furs and sheer panels for when the time is right. For it is not only on Wednesdays, à la Mean Girls that we wear pink. It can be every day.
Last year I had an Australian landlord. He was laid back, always asking me 'how're you going?' and never concerned about anything but the Ashes. Caslazur has the same vibe; her girl is cool and calm. She turns heads, not because she looks a million dollars, but because her clothes have it all worked out.
While some commented that Zoe would have been better suited to a New York showing this season, the cool ease of it was London through and through. Effortlessly cool, always stylish but just a little haphazard. In the best kind of way.
Recently being introduced to Aigner's 'Florence' tote, my heart skipped a beat. That doesn't happen too often - my bar is a high one. But she simply sung to me, trilling her seduction until it was outside my powers to resist a cheeky hold. Slipping her over my arm, our chemistry was instant and permanent
I guess I'm into shoes, then. I love a good heel. Although, I'm not so good at them. Samples sales have taught me that most often, scenarios involving my debit card and stilettos are to be avoided. You got me, I admit it. I've caved again, and again, and again.
Hands up who has bared a naked leg this week. I have! The sun was back from maternity leave for a couple of days and bathed London in glorious sunlight. I am perpetually optimistic regarding mother nature's attention to the weather.
Ashley Williams would go to a wedding every weekend, if she could. "If you dress happy, you feel happy!" she says, when I ask if fashion needs an injection of fun. And it does. Amongst the squeaky vinyl and vixen red and black of fashion's rebel girl, Williams, Fashion East's newest recruit is a breath of fresh air.
Pastels and spring have a mundane, predictable relationship. In a similar vein to the floral prints for spring's sister non-surprise, designers are naturally drawn back to soft unicorn colours - those to brighten and lighten the April skies.
Casual chic comes with some conditions. Thankfully, they are down to you, every time. There's no set rhythm or glossy-magazine rule to your ultimate style relaxation. Without you, clothes are just that. In the immortal words of Bella Freud, 'inside your wardrobe hang your brains'.
I am not very good at being sexy. And that's just as well, as this season is not about traditional sexiness. It's about the no-sex sexy.
