You can talk about Chanel, Christian Dior, Marc Jacobs, Prada… all you want, but they already have a name in the world of fashion. There are so many designers out there who are truly talented and work hard to deliver each season a magnificent collection. That’s why I put a spotlight on Antoine + Stanley, an Australian based shoe (and accessory) brand, who really deserves the attention. Designer and founder, Paul Waddy, creates shoes that combine the flawless craftsmanship of European brogues with the modern man’s quest to establish his own fashion identity.

The Fall Winter 2012-13 collection is all about vintage-inspired styles with a focus on reasonably-priced quality and unexpected modern twists. Yes, totally my cup of tea! There are too many lovely pairs, so I’ve picked my 5 favourite ones:

They’re available for purchase internationally via Asos.com, and the full range can be browsed at Antoineandstanley.com.

Ladies, already curious what the hottest trends will be next Summer season? Well, here they are:

Samurai chic

Think kimono like garments, Japanese floral prints, high belts and Samurai armoured shoulders. Fashion is looking eastwards. Hello, Japan!

Ann Demeulemeester Spring Summer 2013

Bright colors

Colors are brighter than ever. From fuchsia to ochre and emerald green to cobalt blue, wear them ton-sur-ton or go for a degradée style. Color blocking is officialy OUT!

Gucci Spring Summer 2013

Moschino Spring Summer 2013

Stripes galore

Stripes are back! Horizontal, vertical or oblique? It doesn’t matter! As long as you wear stripes, you’re fine.

Dolce & Gabbana Spring Summer 2013

Trapeze artist

The new shape this season is trapeze, and it’s most visible in skirts and dresses. A cool and minimalistic trend that flatters almost every body type.

This season is all about optical and figurative prints. Never mix those two, dare to go head-to-toe!

Normally, I only do reviews about the fashion shows I saw with my own eyes, but I want to make an exception for the latest Marc by Marc Jacobs show, held yesterday on day six of New York Fashion Week. That man is a genius! I love his collections, especially Marc by Marc Jacobs, which I can afford… .

The Fall Winter 2012-13 collection looks like a celebration of the ska spirit, but in the most polished way possible. Geometric prints, dark colors, combat boots, powerful coats… both male and female models were looking confident and strong, ready to conquer the world. There are a lot of pieces I want, but that golden trenchcoat is definitely on my wish list! Yes, I’m a fan of this collection, but Marc, women wearing combat boots… really? I prefer high heels, honey!

Guess what, ladies? Polka dots are back! As if they ever went away, right? Polka dots are classically associated with Minnie Mouse skirts, but remarkable creativity has gone into re-vamping polka dots for Fall Winter 2011-12. They are almost on everything… from retro dresses, coats, tops and hats to tights. Polka dots are perfect because they are a less intimidating print, easy to work with and can create looks for every occasion.
