A bit of a warning first: this is going to be a very picture-heavy post, so do your reading now and prepare for some serious eye candy. I’m also trying to get this post out ASAP because the last time I wanted to feature Natalie B Coleman‘s designs, I got pipped to the post by everyone and their uncles so I decided to leave it out. I’m jealous like that, and don’t like to feel like I’m behind the curve.

This time, however, I think I’ve picked things up in a timely fashion, and things are pretty exciting. It’s quite rare that I find a collection that is not only aesthetically pleasing but genuinely covetable in that I could imagine me, and most of my friends, wearing pieces of the collection – if not the whole collection. The sheer skirts; satins fashioned in interesting, innovative ways; a parka with sparkle and a cowl detailing at the back. A jewellery theme running through the entire line also pleases my magpie senses, and the Miu Miu style shoes ‘n’ socks detailing is just one of the great decisions made by stylist Aisling Farinella on this shoot.

And you know what? The more I look at the shoot, the more I like about it. From the neo-pirate styling to the blue nail polish, to the white shirt with all of the draping in the back. IN THE BACK. I love things that have a lot going on in the back. (I wonder, too, what the Man Repeller would make of it . . .)
