I just found the new look book for Céline's AW13 accessories and had to share it with you all! Still one of the most coveted brands, and for those of you who've tried to purchase any of these before you'll know how hard it is to get hold of any of them at any time of the year. It's almost lucky dip when you get to any of the store's or concessions as you just don't know what they'll have in, and you know they'll be sold out within hours if you don't buy it then and there! So here are the styles for AW13 (available from July I believe) so you can start planning your purchase before they all go!
P.S- How insane is the Patent Black Luggage? I am in love.

Let's talk about Novel Tee's, which should definitely be confused with all things novelty, (see what I did there?) because fashion is fun and we should make fun of it too. I'm sure you've all seen L.A based designer Brian Lichtenberg's novel tee's and sweatshirts, which come in the 'Homies' (a.k.a Hermès) logo amongst others (my favourite is Fèline..) but i'm definitely feeling these Conflict of Interest tee's which are also of the novel variety. Which do you like? I'm loving the Benzo (Mercedes-Benz turned tiger) tee! Very clever.

You may have noticed my obsession with grey sweaters; lets discuss. a) They are unarguarbly comfortable and toasty. b) They tone down a look when any scary busy print of the trend variety is involved. c) You can pretty much wear it with anything, and take it from the day into the night, with little changing or accessorising involved.
I've picked this Topman 'NYC' sweater (see my previous post) as an example to show you how to team it with a number of pieces, but also to encourage you to raid your boyfriends wardrobe and see just how well certain pieces can work. I can confirm this originally did not go down too well; "No really please, that's my favourite sweatshirt", to eventually, "Ok it does look better on you".
Success! Let's look further. See all the looks after the jump.

|3.1 Phillip Lim Leather Overalls|

As you may have already seen, dungarees a.k.a 'overalls' are slowly seeping back into high-street trends, mainly of the denim variety (1994, anyone?). But! For all of you runway-savvy lot you've probably already noticed this is a take on the like's of 3.1 Phillip Lim, whose leather overalls were seen on nearly every editor and blogger who could get their hands on them at fashion week (at £1200, they sold out within 48 hours on Netaporter and Shopbop!).
You may have also seen a month or so ago Whistles did their own take on the leather overalls at £375; still steep in price but again, they sold out pretty quickly.
The best alternative i've found? These Zara Leather Overalls pretty much tick all the boxes of the Phillip Lim ones (note the black hardware, cropped tailoring et all), and the lowest price i've found yet at £239. (If you don't want to invest in a real leather pair, you can get these NastyGal Faux leather overalls, which come in at just under £60!)
