- Isabel Marant Autumn/Winter 2012/13 -

Founded in 1994 by the woman herself, Isabel Marant has gone from strength to strength. Her classic, effortless, parisan chic style is portrayed in every collection making her an incredibly  consistant designer. Her extremely popular wedge trainers became an instant success and helped her become more of a household name. Above I have selected some of my favourite snaps from her A/W12 show at Paris fashion week. Below I have included some high street pieces which can help you recreate her style for less. 

#1 Zara. Blouse with lace and threaded ribbon.

#2 Sabo Skirt. Nat top.

#3 Sabo Skirt. Tassel Shorts.

#4 Topshop. Moto sparkle coller bleach shirt.

#5 Zara. Horse print shirt.

#6 ASOS. Melissa protection cowboys boots.

#7 Sabo skirt. Black tassel shorts. 

#8 ASOS. Jalouse ash boot.

#9 Topshop. Alvin studded western boots. 
#10 Zara. Blouse with lace and swiss dot bib.

- By Zoé -

By Zoé was established in 2005. Priding themselves on their ever feminine and romantic style. "Refreshes classics with originality  by offering beautiful and comfortable materials with unique prints". This season their use of leather and brushed wool had ensured its kept up with the trends of Autumn/Winter 2012/13 while keeping true to their classic parisan style. Loving the leather panel leggings and shearling jackets. This label has most definitely ticked all boxes! Find their website here and their blog here.

- Autumn/Winter 2012/13. Coats and Jackets! -

#1 The ragged preist. Harley biker jacket.
#2 Yves Saint Laurent. Hooded brushed wool coat.

#4 TopShop. Contrast sleeve army jacket.
#5 ASOS. Mixed fabric hooded jacket.
#6 Just Female.  Wool zip coat.

I have such a weakness for jackets and coats. I much prefer buying winter clothes as living in Ireland we only really have one season, rain! So when buying you can afford to go little mad as you are guaranteed to get the wear out of your buys. I could really go on and on about some of my favourite picks of A/W 12 coats and jackets...But I have managed to select a few of my most coveted items. Hope you enjoy and find some inspiration in these beautiful pieces.
