Are you a coat or a jacket kind of person? I’m both. My beloved Ennio from Costume National sent me this amazing, glittery, silver half-jacket, half-coat when I was in Paris. It’s the perfect piece to wear this autumn. I have a feeling it’s gonna get a lot of mileage from me this season. Afterall, I love a bit of sparkle regardless of the time of the day.

Bling bling and Vogue Russia aside, my chat with Michael Angel last week inspired me to take out my strikingly colourful leggings he gifted me last year.
During our chat, I voiced out that the leggings were rather a bit loose on me and then he told me that the pair I have is actually a prototype. Wow! I also found out that the leggings at the store are a little, just a wee bit smaller than the ones I have and size small would fit most body types because they are stretchable. You may also cut the bottom part of the leggings without a hitch if you don’t like the ‘scrunchie’ effect.
Michael has been generous enough to provide you my dear readers with a promo code for FREE SHIPPING anywhere in the world for all orders over US$250 at his online store. Just enter the code MABB297509 upon check-out. I’m totally obsessed with his leggings and tanks, you have no idea. I’m thinking of buying another pair or two, I just need to get my finances in order.
How time flies fast eh? I spoke to the lovely Michael Angel (who will officially open the New York womenswear collections next month) on skype last night and he indulged me with a quick preview of his Spring 2010 looks.
He really matured as a designer in spite of him only showing in New York for a few seasons. I think it’s his best collection to date. Sophisticated, well-cut pieces and mind-blowing, colourful prints — potent combination to start NY fashion week with a bang! I took some screenshots but alas, they’re for my personal enjoyment only.
Shoelovers of the world, you’re gonna die when you see his shoes. He collaborated with a prestigious, blue-chip footwear institution. My lip are sealed on this one!
Aussie designer Michael Angel, who is set to open the New York Fashion Week spring/summer 2010 womenswear collections, finally launched his online store today. I’m really excited about his new venture! As you know, I’m a big fan of Michael’s work.
His deliciously edgy pieces feature digital artwork he did himself so go check it out. There are heaps of gorgeous, colourful tank tops (in different luxurious silk fabrics) and leggings that come in handy in those days when you’re out on the prowl to make a statement.
