 Happy Friday Friends!!!

Here is another  watercolour design by me, which I developed a little while ago.  I cannot wait  until Melbourne weather stops being so unpredictable and we get a bit of consistent sunshine so I can sit outside, in the sun and paint up some new designs and drawings.

In the meantime, stay tuned as I have some new posts on, designer profiles,products, and more trend boards coming up in the following days/weeks.

Don’t forget that you can “like” LiLT on facebook here
and you can sign up for email updates on new post in the side bar, if you prefer that kind of thing

Have a great weekend!!! xo Luciana

Mania Mania

 
Isn’t this necklace amazing??? I have been searching for the perfect tassel necklace for quite a while now (I saw a girl wearing a gorgeous one almost 2 years ago), but until now had not found one that I really loved. Probably because i had a very particular size and look in mind. But ahhh…here it is, the beautiful Cosmos Necklace by Mania Mania.

I love the proportion between the chain length, chunky tassel pendant and the delicate Art Nouveau inspired border. Check out their new collection “The Astral Plane” which is available to purchase online here
Also Broadsheet Melbourne told me that they are holding a pop up sale with Ellery in Melbourne this weekend. Check out Sale details here

Pamela Love for Nine West

When I read about the Pamela Love and Nine West collaboration the other day I think i squealed a little.

I absolutely adore (love) Pamela Love’s jewellery, and I’m always a fan of a chunky boot…so these boots just make perfect sense to me.  Then I realised that you could only get them in the U.S and my squealing subsided…. but then I remembered that the boyfriend is IN NEW YORK at the moment!!!!!, and so i put in my shopping request. I got a video call this morning letting me know they soon will be on their way to Melbourne and onto my feet. I can’t wait!!! Thanks Grange you’re the best 🙂

If you’re in the U.S you can find them at Nine West

What I'd rather be wearing today

If I had it my way (and a wallet full of cash) this is what i would be wearing today. I am currently OBSESSED with the Alexander Wang Emile Leopard bag, and i have been pining for the Acne Cypress boots for a while now.  The whole outfit has really been based on those two items.

Dries Van Noten

Every Year there is one collection which I look forward to the most. This collection is ALWAYS Dries Van Noten. Dries is by far one of my favourite designers, and his collections always excite and inspire me.  Therefore I thought it fitting that my first (non introductory) post be about his Spring 2013 collection. 

This year was no exception and like always Dries has created a wonderfully cohesive collection. I know we always hear collections been described as “mixing masculine and feminine”, blah blah blah, but it is precisely this that Dries Van Noten does so goddamn well. The collection is just that… a gorgeous combination of Masculine shapes and patterns (see man style work shirts in tartan) intermixed with feminine fabrics like organza , and truly very beautiful screen printed florals (amazing floral pants, which i need in my life).  
And although i am not usually a huge fan of the grunge movement in fashion, i have to make an exception for this collection. It is so beautifully executed,still polished,feminine and relaxed. I could definitely see myself slipping into more than a few of these looks. There are many reasons why I love Dries Van Noten and one of the main reasons, is his ability to combine, pattern, textures and silhouettes so seamlessly. 

Without a doubt (and not surprisingly) one of my favourite collections this year.
