THEO Eyewear, Belgium (Unisex)

Stylish, edgy and fun with highly creative shapes and palette, Theo eyewear from Belgium is unlike anything you've ever seen, or anything you've ever worn.Theo is an anagram for Hoet. Wim Somers and Patrick Hoet, both opticians with their own stores, decided to bring something different to the eyewear table and introduced the first Theo eyewear collection at the Paris tradeshow Silmo in 1989. Offering avant-garde designs, Theo’s popularity quickly went beyond a select group of sophisticates. Today, sold in over 1,400 stores across 50 countries, Theo provides a unique expression of individualism for a global fanbase of self-confident eyewear-users.

Contemporary yet with a big wink to vintage goodness, these fresh, exciting Theo frames outlined in thick plastic are not for the faint-of-heart, but will absolutely brighten your day! They frame br
oader faces really well, too. Wear these stand-out looks, and you’ll never have to worry about fading into the background :-)

Theo fans are as diverse as they come.

REBECCA TAYLOR Leather-Trim Dress

Sleek and sophisticated up front, a bit edgier in the back, this Rebecca Taylor design --with princess seams for a figure-flattering shape-- is the best of both.
The inset half-belt of trapunto-stitched lambskin leather creates a visually slimming effect.
For day or evening events, offset this effortlessly cool piece with a colour-pop tote and a metallic cuff.
(RRP US$375)

Happy Sunday! Two deeply contrasting but equally fascinating works.

NYC designer Rebecca Minkoff excels at many things, but we’re always wowed by her ability to work edgy and fluid details into a bag. Case in point, the curvaceous Vanity bag. Tiny gold-tone grommets travel the graceful lines of this crossbody style, in a relatively compact size for those who prefer to travel a bit lighter whenever possible.
(RRP US$495)

The stars come out in throves to support a very pregnant Rebecca Minkoff at her SS2012 runway show two weeks back.

HAUTE HIPPIE One-Sleeve Mini Dress

Beautifully simple in design, the most striking thing about this medium-weight V-neck mini dress from NYC label Haute Hippe is a single cowl sleeve - which creates an intriguing and provocative silhouette. You'll seriously get the party started in swingy, sexy piece!
(RRP US$395)

After spending some time at Michael Kors and Theory, New York-based designer Trish Wescoat-Pound rolled out a her own label in 2008. With a nod to glam boho-chic ethos of the ’70s, Haute Hippie embodies the passionate spirit of the ‘global gypsy’ who lives the jet-setting/rockstar life with style and ease. Now in its 3rd year of business, Haute Hippie recently inducted into the CFDA and is fast becoming a definitive source of cool, vintage-inspired style for boho babes.

MILLY (New York) Stripe Cardigan

’Tis the season for cardigans!
Especially cardis in chic, sweet stripes - like this ‘boat house’ design from New York city label Milly. Made from super-luxe cashmere, this piece is a terrific cold-office as well as airplane travel option, or just a great way to lift a look and bring it sailing into the new season.
(RRP €330)

MILLY by Michelle Smith
Milly founder Michelle Smith has nurtured a passion for fashion since childhood. With an FIT and ESMOD education and training at Hermes, Louis Vuitton, Torrente and Christian Dior Haute Couture, Smith learnt her basics and honed her skills before returning home to New York to start Milly with her then boyfriend (now her husband).
Known for interpreting classic looks with a youthful exuberance and vintage vibe, Smith’s exquisite designs are just as likely to be found in the closet of a 20-something who would wear the garments for work and beyond, as it is on a stylish soccer mum who covets the Holly Golightly-inspired LBD.
Marking its 10th anniversary this year, Milly is now launching handbags, jewellery, and even ‘Milly Minis’, a children's line.
