We do love going to Press Days. The atmosphere is always so great and it's always fun to meet other people and have one-on-ones with designers etc. Last week, we went to the Tara Lacey Press Day, which was for SS10 and AW10. For those of you who don't know, Tara Lacey is an online boutique that specialises in luxury brands for women, from all over the world. The site focuses more on quality than household 'designer names'. The site has a lot of 'hard to find' pieces, as well as many exclusives from designers such as Olivia Rubin.
Here are some of our favourites from SS10:
These shorts are from the brand Nocturne. I really loved them a lot. They look so perfect for summer.
A fringe shawl: so perfect for a night out, again from Noctune.
Bllack Noir was really a label that stood out for me. This was a lovely sequin top. The whole of the Bllack Noir collection is truely fantastic.
Olivia Rubin has such bright and beautiful dresses. The pinks were so bold!
And this is Tara Cowland, founder of Tara Lacey, modelling a piece from Gina Bacconi:
There were also some really cool accessories. A lot of the jewellery was very statement, such as these cuffs from Fiona Paxman:
The bags seemed so perfect for festivals, with all the fringe. They're from the brand 'Sam Ubhi'.
This was a really unique piece. They are shoulder embellishments. You're supposed to put them on plan t-shirts, or dresses and it instantly brightens up your outfit.
I, personally, fell in love with the building the Press Day was held in. I am in love with old Georgian style houses, and was delighted with this one. We even got a small tour of the building as well.
Everything from SS10 is online now!
