LACOSTE LIVE 5-pocket Slim Fit Denim

When it comes to denim, fit is everything. And for this season, slim and straight-leg denim is the way to go. Dyed with a finish that bridges the gap between informal jeans and smart slacks, this slim-fit five pocket style from Lacoste Live will ensure that there is no excuse for letting your look grow lax during laid-back weekends.
Just throw on a colourblock/printed T-shirt for an unbeatable smart-casual look.

Launched just last year, this diffusion line -for guys and gals- is a celebration/blend of vintage trends and modern day street fashion, offering a retro twist on the classic preppy looks that the main brand is known for, as well as younger silhouettes, slimmer fits, and funner shades.

Queen of Knits: Bright printed knitwear gave iconic French designer Sonia Rykiel her first success, and this nickname. In 1990, more than 30 years after the much applauded main line, the designer launched Sonia by Sonia Rykiel, a younger and trendy sister line which has been no less desirable in fashionable circles.

This Spring/Summer, the Sonia by Sonia Rykiel collection is made up of, among others, a series of playful short dresses realised in the brand’s signature chic and quirky Left-bank style.
The strength of this versatile dress lies in the on-trend colourblock trim, taking the look from a simple tank to a refreshing statement.
And did we mention pockets? (Every gal needs extra pockets to stay alive organised.)
Go girlish for day by teaming it with multi-strap flat sandals and a cross-body bag, or opt for heels and a clutch for party hour.
(RRP US$385)

A stunning shot from the Sonia Rykiel Exhbition held at the Musées des Arts Décoratifs in Paris in 2008 to mark the 40th anniversary of Sonia Rykiel’s career in fashion. The pioneering redhead turns 82 this year.
