The weather is horrible this afternoon! Not only is it raining, its dark, grey, foggy, & thundering! I mean hello we are in April! I've heard of April showers but this takes it to a whole other level! I cannot wait for some sunshine to hit the UK - preferably for more than 2 days!
Looking at this weather I can't help but invision China, old town China, where the buildings are beautifully constructed, with intricate artwork, Geishas strutting in the streets, immaculately finished from head to toe, shielded from rainfall from the over extended roof tops.
We have seen Louis Vuitton encapsulate the S/S11 collection with tastes from the East, heavy satin finishes, Mandarin collars, subtle cherry blossom prints, refreshed with minimal eye make-up and dark cherry red lips, lined with plum. In addition to Louis Vuitton, Chanel's S/S11 runway also took inspiration from the East, with a monochromatic take on the trend.
So what has the high street got to offer? With Zara, Miss Selfridge, Topshop and River Island all providing items at affordable prices there's no excuse not to pick up an item or two. Above is a polyvore I created with some high street items to take you through the Spring/Summer season.
Btw - how beautiful does Jennifer Lopez look in this new add campaign...
Have you purchased anything from the Oriental trend?
