Look of the day

These recent photographs of jewelry designer Lara Melchior on make me long for a wardrobe consisting solely of silk shirts and loose fitting trousers. Citing Dries Van Noten and Phoebe Philo among her favourite designers, it is no surprise that for Melchior comfort is key. Her wardrobe is awash with simple jersey tee shirts by Isabel Marant, wide leg trousers and breton tops, all accessorised with her line of delicate gold jewelry inspired by Viennese Art Nouveau and Fauvism. The allure of her wardrobe lies in well cut, good quality, comfortable basics which work just as well for day as for evening. Plus, anyone who owns a pair of Chanel espadrilles gets my style vote...

I wanted to give a woman comfortable clothes that would flow with her body. A woman is closest to being naked when she is well-dressed Coco Chanel

  1. I love the outfits, nice and relaxed.

  2. j'adore, simplement sublime. Just like your blog :)


  3. Absolutely beautiful. I'm making an effort to pare my wardrobe down to the basics in preparation for a big move, and these photos are incredible inspiration.

  4. I adore how this is beautifully free and unihibited yet still feminine. It goes to show women look best when in clothes that love them back. The ease and fluidity of these pieces is very inspiring.

  5. pretty.
