Just do add up the bill for us at the end old sport!


 Frida Giannini pored through brand archives from the ’60s for her Fall ’14 runway. “I felt the need to materialize the essence of Gucci,” she says. Clean lines, high hems and knee boots are defining looks of the collection; along with luxe coats, they’re at the top of our wish lists

GUCCI – Leather-trimmed stretch-crepe dress $1,650

The black leather trims on Gucci’s stretch-crepe dress highlight your waist – the narrowest part of your silhouette. Demure from the front with a deep V-shaped back, this slim-fitting design is ideal for evening events. Pointed pumps are the perfect finishing touch



For those in the know, Gianvito Rossi has long been the destination for expertly crafted and comfortable heels in elegant silhouettes. This season sees kitten heels and ’70s-inspired western boots enter the mix. Don’t miss the covetable over-the-knee styles – a key shape for Fall ’14.

A ‘no rules’ approach and unrivalled attention to proportion and form have won Italian designer Giambattista Valli a vast fashion following. Having honed his craft at Fendi and Emanuel Ungaro, 2011 saw the launch of the designer’s first haute couture collection, demonstrating his commitment to exceptional fabrics and modern tailoring.

GIAMBATTISTA VALLI- Stretch-twill blazer $2,200

Giambattista Valli’s ivory stretch-twill blazer is from the designer’s Pre-Fall collection. Fully lined in silk-georgette, this elegant piece has a neat peplum that cleverly draws the eye to the smallest part of your waist. We love it worn with the matching skirt.
Marni’s glossed-leather shoulder bag is a sophisticated choice for every day. Constructed with three canvas-lined compartments for easy organization, it has plenty of room for the essentials. Carry it by the goldtop handle or go hands-free with the detachable shoulder strap.
