Chanel's guitar

The ultimate rock star gift for Christmas.

Exposed zips

We know Lanvin has been doing this for years but it's a little detail that makes an item that much more chic.

Winter dressing

Structured coats, architectural boots, tights - fashion was made for this season.

Sheer black tights

They are back and will save your ankles when you wear the cropped trousers/ankle boots combo.


Embellishment overload

Just because it's the holiday season doesn't mean you need to buy a dress with beading, sequins and feathers.

Glittering logos

Logos are bad enough but do you really need to spell them out in Swarovski crystals?

Elbow-length fingerless gloves

A fashion misstatement of the worst kind.

Beaded vests

Vests are no longer cool and throwing on some beads won't save them.
