Currently Channeling... Louis Vuitton Underwear As Outerwear

Every fashion month, there are a couple of shows which grab us immediately, set the tone for our wardrobes for the season to come and leave us desperate to see whether the highstreet will have shared our excitement and deliver homages within our price range.  

Last spring the show that really had us at hello was Louis Vuitton. Fifty doors opened onto a hotel corridor come catwalk spilling out Cara, Kate and co in an array of lingerie-esque pieces with mannish coats thrown over the top. The show notes explained that the collection channelled the "attitude of getting dressed up only to find the most glamorous destination is one's own hotel room." What could be more decadently fabulous? 
Post-show Marc Jacobs elaborated further on the woman he'd designed the collection for: "She’s Left Bank. She’s Hollywood. A bit Gloria Swanson. A bit Juliet Greco. She’s romantic, erotic, decadent, glamorous and she loves luxury". If we weren't already sold, that really sealed the deal - that was exactly who we fancied being when the temperature dipped.

Turns out we were joined by fashion's finest in that sentiment...

So it was with baited breath that we waited for the autumn/winter highstreet collections to drop. 
And thankfully our favourite purveyor of high fashion on a budget blew even our wildest dreams out of the water... yup - Zara has once more totally excelled itself. In fact Zara's Louis Vuitton inspired offering is so extensive that there's a whole section of the website devoted to it - Lace. Here are the pieces we're currently most coveting...

Just add an oversized, mannish coat, chuck insouciantly over the top of your lacy loveliness and remember staying in is the new going out...
