If it ain't baroque don't fix it

History.. its influence on fashion is now unprecedented. Take this seasons baroque trend I have visions of Peter the Great thrusting his sword into the cold wilderness of what is now modern day St Petersburg. This isn't minimalism this is ultimate maxi-malism.

There are golds, velvets the lushest shades of burgundy for a sophisticated Autumnal palate. No one of course did this better than D&G. It was rich, bold and full of historic sentiments of monarchies past. Ellie Saab's gold dresses however have me forward thinking to the glitziest of Christmas parties...the best of old school movie stars and lashings of the finest champagne.

For every day work attire I will be simplifying things by taking Ralph Lauren and Moschino for my fashion inspiration and upping my fashionista credentials by teaming with a trophy jacket and accessories from Anna Dello Russo's new collection for H&M. That's if all those anti fashionista bastards haven't bulk bought the whole fucking collection and decided to try and charge exorbitant prices...anyway I have already given you my thoughts on that in a previous post.

The woman is just coolness personified she allegedly owns 4000 pairs of shoes and the fact she lives in Italy and is editor in chief for Vogue Nippon kind of gives rise to the new collection its 'ghetto baroque' darling.  Now watch and then go buy those fabulosa gold boots.

I shall shortly be posting some piccies of my new gold purchases.
