VINCE Lambskin and Silk Sheath Dress

Feeling like this season’s leather trend is a little too bad-ass for you? You won’t go wrong with this gorgeous lambskin-and-silk number by Vince. The epitome of luxe, this dress marries downtown cool with uptown sophistication for a day-to-night look that flaunts modern edge.
Keep your look smart and fashion-forward with pin-heeled ankle boots —or pointy pumps— and  a slick ponytail.
(RRP US$595)

Founded by Laundry alumni Rea Laccone and Christopher LaPolice, the luxury label known for combining minimalist lines with high-end fabrics is enjoying a great 2012. After unveiling an expanded department at Saks Fifth Avenue New York in September this year (did you know that Vince is Saks’ biggest contemporary resource?), the company opened a flagship store in Madison Avenue in October, followed by a store at The Grove (LA’s chicest outdoor mall) just this month, right before Thanksgiving.

Now in its 10th year, Vince has collected an impressive following including fashion editors and style leaders. Vince supporters (L to R): Olivia Palermo, Isabel Dupre, Maria Duenas Jacobs (Glamour editor), and Joanna Hillman (Harper’s Bazaar editor).

Trend Spotting: Leather
Forget what you would normally associate with leather wares (motorcycle jackets, rocker pants). This season’s leather —and next season’s, too— is totally refined and ladylike. Below: Leather from Autumn/Winter 2012 and Spring/Summer 2013.

LACOSTE Long-Sleeve Polo Shirt

Dressier than a T-shirt, cooler than a dress shirt. A long-sleeve polo is the ideal in-between piece. Crafted from ultra-comfortable slub cotton and finished with a contrast-collar, this fresh spin from Lacoste will let you strike a confident Saturday look when teamed with simple trousers and retro footwear.

What is Slub?
Slub fabric is made with 100% cotton threads of varying width, which are loosely knitted together to create a super soft jersey that’s got a streaky look with worn-in texture.

Awashed in a beautiful paisley print, this floor-grazing, empire-waist design from Collette —a diffusion line inspired by down-under designer Collette Dinnigan’s travels around the world— is flawlessly nonchalant for your next special lunch date with the BF or old friends.
Simply garnish the look with platform sandals and a loose ponytail – guaranteed to turn heads.
(RRP US$230)

Such an iconic designer hardly needs an introduction, but Collette Dinnigan has been a household fashion name since becoming the first Australian to be invited to show at the official Haute Couture week in Paris in 1995. Dinnigan has a cult following who is dedicated to her exquisitely detailed and feminine garments, which make regular appearances on the red carpet -and wedding aisles- all over the world.

Collette Dinnigan’s latest project: a ballet-inspired childrens’ party-wear capsule collection -including tutus, boleros, ballet bags- to commemorate The Australian Ballet’s 50th anniversary.

An epic journey to melt your heart. Happy Sunday!

P.S. If the song sounds familiar, that's because it's a cover version (by indie-folk singer Gabrielle Aplin) of the hit 'The Power of Love', originally sung by Frankie Goes To Hollywood in 1984.

BALLY Men's Leather High-Top Sneakers

Despite turning a whopping 160-years-old last year, Swiss heritage luxury leather goods Bally continues to be a synonym of expert craftsmanship and classy design that corresponds to the expectations of the most demanding customers. This retro style high-top sneaker lets you get your game on – courtesy of the supple perforated leather, and Bally’s signature ‘Trainspotting’ stripe.
This unbeatably cool pair will lend your slim-fitting black jeans or low-key denims a sophisticated accent at the weekend.
(RRP US$450 / £320)

Bally Trainspotting Collection
Bally’s ‘Trainspotting’ capsule collection takes its name not from the Irvine Welsh novel turned Danny Boyle film, but rather from the Swiss luxury brand’s red-and-white-striped ribbon, itself inspired by Switzerland’s like-clockwork rail network and the colours of the country’s flag. The go-on-time stripes have been incorporated into a range of sumptuous leather shoes and bags.

Luxury men’s trend: From Lanvin to Yves Saint Laurent, all the big-names are offering their male customers high-tops this season.
