We call it a statement piece, or ‘hero’ piece.
Whichever way you look it it… These pieces stand out and will not go unnoticed.
A beautiful hero piece can elevate your outfit from good to great. We are full supporters of using statement pieces to add interest to an outfit, especially when you’ve chosen to wear something understated. It’s also a stylish shortcut to employ on days when your outfit requires some punch, but may not have time to rework the entire look.
The addition of an eye-catching element to your look can really make it pop!
This season we’ve chosen some seriously stand out pieces for your day to day dressing as well as those special occasions. Days over 25 degrees are few and far between moving forward, so layering and trans seasonal pieces are also on the menu.
THE BAG – Il Carretto by Dolce Gabbana
The unique patterns of Dolce & Gabbana’s Carretto Siciliano are transposed onto this summer-focused bag for a sizzling Sicilian inspired look. The charming and unique pattern characterises the typical Sicilian horse drawn cart (Carretto Siciliano) dedicated entirely to this piece from the Italian island’s folk heritage.
If you haven’t caught the sneaker bug, now is your chance!
The cooler months are coming and comfort will offer some comfort during those blustery Melbourne days.
You no longer need to keep your super stylish sneakers for the athleisure section of the weekend. These shoes – carefully chosen – work back very nicely with tailoring and even a trans seasonal dress on those balmier Autumn days.
Take a bold stride in Stella McCartney’s pumped-up Eclypse sneaker. Styles feature stone and rock textured soles in a multitude of tones are an unexpected twist, incorporating rubber made from renewable resources.
Mixing alter-calf, alter-micro suede and neoprene, the sneaker uppers reflect our cruelty-free stance using non-leather materials.
Styles have a modern kick and add a cool and easy attitude to your new season wardrobe.
Looking for something a little more spacey? These black metallic knit sock sneakers from Stella McCartney are a brilliant option. The perfect look with a straight leg cropped denim or leather jean. They feature a pull tab at the rear, a white rubber sole and a slip-on style.
Colourful flowers have become an intrinsic part of Dolce & Gabbana’s exuberantly feminine collections; gracefully decorating clothing and accessories, each bloom is beautifully brought to life in this multicoloured silk floral print shawl. Featuring a fringed edging this beautiful piece dresses up any look. It may be black tie glamour, whisked over the shoulders of your Saint Laurent Smoking suit or a scarlett red Roland Mouret cocktail dress and stilettos.
Any which way you want to use it, this piece is for the generations. Super Special.
THE BLACK DRESS
Olivier Rousteing, who is the inimitable creative director behind super sexy fashion house Balmain, is the king of the black dress. Every season without fail he produces a showstopper. This season, we could not choose between two heavenly black dresses from the house. Alas, we will have to showcase them both.
Black is not boring – especially when it’s Balmain. It can, in fact, cut through the busy-ness of the “more is more” trend that has enveloped the industry for the past 5 years.
