If there's one sale worth checking out each season, it's Net-A-Porter's. While it's fair to say that the pieces are generally still in the three digit and up range, there are some good bargains to be had especially from the more accessible brands like 3.1. Phillip Lim, Alexander Wang and Derek Lam.
It's not all clothes though, as the sale line-up features great accessories like the highly coveted YSL arty ring, great rings from Kenneth Jane Lane and iPad accessories from Michael Kors and Marc by Marc Jacobs.
Have a look through the gallery to see my picks from the sale. Have you bagged any bargains?
Every young girl wants to wear Marc by Marc Jacobs. While it is his younger accessible line, there's a lot more to the line than frills and pom pom dresses. Don't get me wrong, the girlie pieces were there especially on the floral prints and velvet skirts and dresses but each of these came with contrasting androgynous boots and socks that helped give the looks an edge and the male models all had half shaved heads.
The collection also tapped into the recurring theme of school wear with bags coming in structured styles teamed with button down shirts and some pleated skirts, especially a grey one with a contrasting red hemline, teamed over oversized black frames. A clinical grey single breasted jacket and simple shirt instantly added something different to a feminine red and black printed over-the-knee length skirt.
And if you are on the hunt for a parka (aren't we all?), we come baring good news. Jacobs offered a great for women in mushroom and a simple black version for men. The bad news? You'll have to wait until August to get your hands on them.
When Alice Dellal first came on the fashion scene she seemed to be everywhere but over the last year or so she disappeared. Don't worry though because the British model is back with a vengence this season because as well as bagging a Chanel campaign, she also stars in the latest Marc by Marc Jacobs campaign.
I've never been the biggest Dellal fan but the ads aren't too bad. What do you think?
Last season, with it's mixed textures and rich colours, was by far my favourite collection for Marc by Marc Jacobs so my expectations were high yesterday for the brand's S/S12 show. But, as always with Jacobs, one muse always expect the unexpected.
The collection felt a lot more grown up compared to what we've seen in the past and definitely marked a step forward in the brand's aesthetic. A simple shift came in a bright orange and navy combination, which added that little bit extra to looks that would otherwise have appeared quite basic. The none orange tat opened the show on a thigh skimming dress popped up throughout the collection on the lining of a single breasted grey coloured coat and on a mid length sleeved crew neck top styled with black shorts, All the trousers were tailored and along with the oversized boyfriend's shirt, they'll make the perfect go-to basics to add to your wardrobe essentials come next season.
Like at DKNY, the collection had a patriotic feeling to it as a handful of peplum top, skirts and dresses all came in white, red and blue stripes.
But don't get me wrong, there was still a strong essence of Marc by Marc. The sporty sweatshirt-and-shorts combo teamed with bright trainers and visors reminded me of the youthful non-try-hard look that Jacobs continues to master.
Denim isn't new to Marc by Marc Jacobs as the brand has showcased pieces in the runway shows but now they have decided to focus on denim producing a small denim collection of 12 styles ranging from $138-$228.
The collection, which will hit stores this month, will stand alone and features a variety of washes and styles from light wash high waisted flares to distressed grey skinnies and straight leg styles in indigo.
Elle Fanning is having quite a fashion moment. The young actress is the current campaign star for Marc by Marc Jacobs, appeared in the August issue of US Vogue alongside big sister Dakota and has now bagged herself this LOVE cover shot by Mert & Marcus.
