look one.

This was my outfit today.We all know florals 'are for spring', florals are 'so last year' etc...but I was in the mood to play up simple with a subtle statement blazer jacket. The UGGS, which i do like was worn for more practical reasons, but I still like them. (so comfortable and warm to stave off the horrible phase of the cold, wet weather in England)

Anyway, In relation to simplicity; I am a pretty simple individual who appreciates muted, subtlety. blacks, browns, whites, creams and greys. minimal yet sophisticated...It seems that this S/S 2011 is about keeping it 'Neil': Clean, polished, solid and sophisticated, with attitude. With edge. (vivid, bright, fresh colours & beautiful new silhouettes).

Philip Lim's 2011 S/S collection has a really 'clean' aesthetic, straight cuts, strong shapes, muted (and the not-so-muted, but fresh) colours.
& my much loved CK was full of dynamic, architectural shapes, lose fitted dresses and jumpsuits. one of my favourite labels; collections. (since age 11...i've always had a thing for minimalist styles; like defined cheekbones. x)
the pieces are so bold, beautiful and inspiring in every way without the need to overwhelm the isle of the catwalk with beautiful yet; blinding hues and strong patterns. Sometimes, or for some of us- all the time, simple is just- Just perfect & necessary really...

Model of 2011:

Perhaps we have another Lara Stone in the making?
