London Fashion Week is in full swing and all the world's most stylish people are currently found at Somerset House. We spotted ELLE UK Fashion Assistant Charlie Gowans-Eglington attending the shows, MCM iPad clutch in tow. She wore it on two different days and her outfits were documented in my favourite section of the ELLEUK website: "What ELLE Wears" which documents what the various journalists and editors at the magazine wear on a daily basis. It is an endless source of inspiration for those days where you are not too sure what to wear.
I also really like ELLE in general. I think out of all the large international fashion publications, it is the one that is the most anchored in reality, while still offering aspirational features. The perfect mix! The UK team is also especially lovely. To celebrate such a stylish and lovely bunch, let's take a closer look at how Charlie, ELLE UK's Fashion Assistant wore her MCM to London Fashion Week.
On the first day, Charlie's outfit was rather fetching and also rather French, well... Parisian inspired, with a combo of stripes, beige and brown. Tres chic!
The second outfit was decidedly more British, with a daring combination of colours and accessories. We love it!
Isn't this clutch lovely?
A bit of ELLE history...
Elle was founded in France in 1945. In the 1960s, it was considered to "not so much reflect fashion as decree it", with 800,000 loyal readers and a then famous slogan: "Si elle lit elle lit Elle (If she reads, she reads Elle)". In 1981, Daniel Filipacchi and Jean-Luc Lagardere purchased Hachette magazines, which included the then-struggling Elle. Elle was then launched in the U.S. (News Corporation owned a stake in the US edition until 1988, followed by 25 other foreign editions). Among its past editors is Jean-Dominique Bauby, who became known for writing a book after suffering almost total paralysis.
