Beyonce's Balmain Moment

It seems that singer Beyonce has developed an obsession with designer du jour, Balmain. Looking great in the S/S 09 military style jacket and the black sequined LBD with train from the A/W 09 collection, Beyonce's current fascination with the French fashion house looks set to stay.

Sailor Chic


This week the high street seems to be flooded with stripes, anchors and anything else of a nautical nature. Bell bottom trousers, rope detail and espadrilles are the best way to wear this look. In a colour palette of navy, white and red, sailor chic is set to be a big hit this summer.

This trend sprung up all over the runways during the Spring/Summer 09 shows with sailor influences noticeable at D&G, Michael Kors, Emporio Armani and Hussein Chalayan and there's no time like the present to stock up on this maritime trend.
