I think if I had to pick the world capital of street style, it would have to be London. No false city pride here, I am a Parisian after all and should probably be defending my home turf, but the ladies of London sure know how to dress! There is no hemline they can't master, no colour they can't block and no print they can't clash. The women of London are like fashion superheroes, parading around in their superb outfits without a care in the world, like they aren't even trying. As you can imagine, London Fashion Week is the pinnacle of this style debauchery, when well-dressed women from all over the world add their own special touch to this already bustling melting pot of personal style.
I find the new SS13 Nuovo L very well suited to the London style, colour wise. The range going from muted, natural hues to pure white and deep blue encompasses the way Londonders have with colour. Mixing hues from eccentric to minimal, but always with gusto... Ladies and gentlemen, I give you *roll drums* colour coordination the London way!
I am generally attracted by simple styles, and this outfit in shades of blue didn't fail to get my heart racing. It may seem very basic when you first look at it, but if you look closer, you can see an intricate mix of textures, fabrics and colours. The Nuovo L tote in dusty coral is the perfect companion to this tonal outfit.
Moss and marshes
You don't need to think for too long to know this outfit is inspired by the beautiful English countryside. An abstract leaf print shirt paired with this linen blazer is delicately evocative of Spring time in the country. The white Nuovo L reminds us of April clouds.
With hues of moonstone and midnight blue, this outfit is sophisticated but also perfect for a day to night London journey. It evokes candlelit dinners, glamourous parties and laughter with friends. Use the Nuovo L tote for the day and swap it for the Nuovo L clutch in the evening.
Pretty in Pink
Angora is one of the girliest fabrics, and when it is pink, it is so sweet it could hurt your teeth. Not an issue though: just pair it with your skinniest jeans and some tough boots! The Nuovo L crossbody bag is simple enough to blend in with your outfit too.
A little bit nautical, a little bit utilitarian and a lot stylish! Print clashing looks great but it also needs to be brought back down to the ground with a clever use of colour (tonal clashing always works best). If you really want to inject some colour to your outfit, try the Nuovo L clutch!
