Black Lace Skirts
Thanks for stopping by to read the latest news in the Pamela_pWornWith edit Black Lace Skirts. As I think you may have guessed by now, I love fashion whether it be clothing, shoes and handbags and I’ve been designing and making my own clothes since I was a teenager. In the Pamela_pWornWith Edit I wanted to show you all how my bags can be worn with the clothes that I love and that are available to buy now. I’m sorry if you like what I’ve designed (clothes on my model) but at the moment all the items are for styling purposes only.
Now that I’m older I really love lace. As a teenager, however, I would immediately conjure up images of the jilted Miss Haversham rotting away in her musty, old lace wedding dress. I felt sorry for the poor thing, rocking back and forth in her chair while she awaited the return of her cad of a fiance. Thankfully I grew out of that mindset and anyway black lace, as opposed to white is something else altogether. It’s vampish compared to virginal white, gothic instead of girly and really saucy if worn sheer, ooh la la. It’s far too early to get everyone’s pulses racing so I shall return to my edit.
Sacai, the label designed by Chitose Abe is one I always look at for inspiration. Her separates are so innovative. She honed her skills working for Rei Kawakubo and Junya Watanabe of Comme des Garçons for ten years, before starting Sacai in 1998. This is obvious when you look at her cuts and styling ideas. Aiming to make clothing suitable for any situation, Abe melds and transforms familiar women’s knitwear, jackets, dresses, trousers, and blouses into novel and challenging design hybrids that are visually interesting. I’ve featured her asymmetric cotton twill-trimmed lace skirt £1,035 here as I love the combination of feminine lace with utilitarial details. The drawstring waist allows you to wear the skirt on the waist or just below it. And the deep front flap pockets allow you to carry items on your person. It’s also lined to the mid thigh so will avoid any flashes of underwear.
Alice & Olivia
This funky brand Alice & Olivia is designed by Stacey Bendet Launched in 2002 with a cult pair of leg lengthening, snake hip cut trousers, it is now stocked in 50 countries. Ms Bendet is inspired by vintage clothing, shopping at flea markets and women. The brand has now been developed and includes ready-to-wear, gowns, shoes, tech accessories and handbags. The monochromatic crochetted lace skirt £370 that I’ve featured here is pretty unique and would be perfect with our percivale directional.
The Jonathan Simkhai Fluted Guipure Lace Midi Skirt I’ve featured here would look great on a sophisticated lady. His brand was established in 2010 and provides luxury ready-to-wear for the modern woman. The core aesthetic philosophy plays with the tension of feminine strength and sensuality; this is reflected in the employment of customized fabrics, romantic detailing, linear lines, and contoured silhouettes. Through designs that seek to embolden women with confidence and ease, the brand represents modern versatility.
More White Trainers
Again, I hear you say, and yes but I just can’t help myself. I love white trainers and thankfully there are many iterations out there. I shall therefore, continue to hunt them down and wax lyrical. The white trainers featured on my model Nina are a gift from my photographer friend Andy. She featured them in a shoot and they’re from Marks and Spencer. I’ve included them in the Pamela_pWornWith edit: Black Lace Skirts as I can’t take them off as they’re so comfortable.
If I was going to buy some though first on my list would be the Off-White Perforated Printed Leather Sneakers £340. Firstly they’re cool (literally) as they allow your feet to breath. In our totally tropical British climate (if only) this is a necessity. Secondly they’re by one of my favourite brands designed by Virgil Abloh. The Milan-based, Ghanaian Creative Director set up his high-end street-wear label in 2014. Offering men’s and womenswear his trademark monochrome diagonal stripes caught my eye.
The second pair featured are, surprisingly (to me anyway) by Burberry £450. They’re a buckle embellished patent-trimmed pair of leather beauties. No doubt they’ll vamp up the percivale directional in Ivory & Black which you can purchase in our on-line shop.
