New Brand Alert: LULU & CO. (London) Printed Silk Top

Earning the spotlight with its frisky designs and eclectic upbeat attitude, Lulu & Co. is the cool lil’ label by Lulu Kennedy, regularly referred to as the British fashion industry’s ‘fairy godmother’. In 2012, Ms. Kennedy was even honoured with an MBE for her services to fashion by Queen Elizabeth II.
A new way to wear the stars, Lulu & Co’s planet printed silk top is just the thing to punctuate classic black tailoring. Alternatively, team it with your favourite jeans and sneakers on off-duty days. :-)
(RRP £200)

Lulu & Co. creative director Lulu Kennedy might not be a fashion household name here, but if you’re part of the industry in London, she’s somewhat of a demigoddess. For the past 14 years, Kennedy has helmed Fashion East, a non-profit organisation that has earned a reputation for discovering and championing London’s up-and-coming design talent. Kennedy is also the Editor-at-Large of Condé Nast’s style biannual LOVE magazine. Lulu & Co. the clothing line reflects both the way Kennedy describes her own dress-sense and that of the quintessential Lulu girl: “a boyfriend jeans kinda girl with an up for it London attitude, the kind of girl who dresses to please herself.” The charm is in the mash-up.

CARVEN (Paris) Printed Silk Playsuit

Favoured by royalty and film stars in the 1940s, Madam Carmen de Tommaso’s label Carven was certainly decadent in its past. Today, led by Guillaume Henry, the brand is known for its playfully sophisticated Parisian chic and adored by style elites and fashion magazines alike.
Following the monochrome-mixed-with-colour theme at Carven’s Resort ’14 presentation, this soft silk playsuit features a contrasting collar (which is very Carven). Finished with an elasticated waist and a knot detail at the front, this Euro-chic style needs little accent—simply team it with wedge sandals and minimal jewellery.
(RRP €355 / US$495)

3.1 PHILLIP LIM (New York) Men's Pants with Side Buttons

Ready for lift-off? Inspired by the aviator pants of WWII-era pilots, 3.1 Phillip Lim redefined them in a modern and stylish way. His version expands with a side-snap panel along the leg (adding attitude without exposing you to the elements) and are finished with an easy elasticised waist.
Go smart with a trim white shirt, go casual-cool with a chambray shirt, or up the athletic ante with a raglan-sleeved sweatshirt.
(RRP US$250)
