I sometimes find Isabel Marant to be a bit much-of-a-muchness but every now and then the label delivers some truly beautiful stand out pieces. This little embellished waistcoat isn’t exactly a useful staple piece, in fact I imagine it’s rather had to actually find all that many outfits to go with it, but even so, it’s a thing of beauty. Salivate away. If you’ve got a spare £2,235 knocking around it can be yours also. Enjoy.
If I was a rich man (insert the token ‘na-na-na-na-na-na-nahh’ here if you really must) and a somewhat braver man I’d be donning these Ikat-print trousers by Burberry Prorsum for sure. They’re certainly not for the faint hearted amongst you but just look how mightily cool you could look? They look best with sandals though so probably not the best time to be cracking out these little beauties, so let’s just call it forward planning.
Buy them if you can. Pine and salivate if you can’t.
Ah Stella McCartney, always doing tailoring like no other. Yellow’s an easy way to be ahead of the crowd next season and this blazer’s pretty darn special. If you can’t quite stretch to £925 then rest assured Zara should be doing an almost exact copy around March time. (I in NO way condone such blatant copying… but you know, we all know it’ll happen.)
When this dress first sashayed down the runway last year I fell in love instantly. Rodarte are the creators of some of the world’s most beautiful dresses, and this little wheat field number (inspired by Dorothy’s scenes in Kansas prior to that fateful tornado) is no exception. You’re going to have to have a spare £7,600 if you want it however.
If it helps you can try and pass it off as a collectable? The ‘it will only increase in value’ excuse is also valid either. Use either.
It’s a thing of true beauty, and that colour is just perfect. When it sashayed down the Valentino runway last season it was clear this was the piece to watch from that collection and now it’s finally arrived in at Net-A-Porter.
So if you have yourself £4,250 this weekend then make sure you snap it up, yeah?
I was seriously torn between putting this bag from The Row in the Prepare To Salivate or the WTF section. Sure it’s actually kind of cool, and probably about the best looking backpack you’re ever going to find… but £22,950? Is there EVER a justification for spending that much money on a bag? A backpack! £22,950. Just…wow.
Olsen Twins, I love thee and I love The Row but I’m not sure I can get on board with this one. In the end I went for Prepare To Salivate as basically that’s what it does to me. The thought of that much money on a bag pretty much makes me froth at the mouth.
If you’re not familiar with J.Crew yet then it’s about time you checked it out. It’s been climbing higher and higher recently and this amazing wool-blend coat is pretty darn good. With it’s black leather sleeves and alpaca-blend body it’s practical and worthy of salivation. What more could you actually ask for? Give it slinky piece of knitwear (preferably a roll-neck) amazing ankle boots and some opaque tights and your winter’s a done deal. A very chic done deal.
This amazing little romper suit, modelled to perfection by Lyndsey Wixson wont be hitting any stores for quite some time yet sadly – it’s part of Jason Wu‘s Spring/Summer 2012 collection. So until the day you can get your paws on it, salivating is just about all you can do. Look out for this appearing on a red carpet soon. I’d bet something vaguely important to me on it. Possibly.
