Meet Sarah and Philippa, the stylists and best friends behind we are TWINSET, the newest addition to my daily reads. Through their beautiful new blog these two lovely ladies share their amazing style tips, daily looks, loves and great finds. I highly recommend if you’re looking for some great (and trusted) inspiration.

I worked with Sarah and Philippa to create their logo in time for the launch. We styled this light sketch together using each of their unique styles and trademarks. What do you think, did I capture them?

MFW: Sicilian Dreaming

dolce-and-gabbana

I am always drawn to the Dolce & Gabbana collections and love the wave of colour on the final walk. This collection was no exception with gold sweeping the stage. It held the same romantic Italian dream as always, but this time there was the addition of blown up ancient gold coins mixed with beautiful florals. Sold!

NYFW Favourites: #3

monique

So I am a little behind in my Fashion week updates I know, seeing as I am just posting my third and last NYFW look – (although I would have loved to have done an Oscar de la Renta sketch – that can come another time) – and we are now on day 2 of Milan Fashion week, post London!

Anyway, here we have Monique Lhuillier’s final look which I fell in love with! I am really liking the crop tops with the high waisted skirts at the moment… might have to start some trend mood boards.

Best of London up next!

As Seen: Ear Cuff

Natalie-Solomon-Tuula-Vintage-Fashion-Illustration-Never-Underdressed-As-Seen-Ear-Cuff

Yesterday’s post on Never Underdressed revealed the new As Seen illustration by yours truly.

This time the focus was on the famous ear cuff, and who best to draw for this than the one and only jet setter, Jessica Stein from Tuula Vintage. I absolutely love doing these illustrations, and already can’t wait to show you the next in line…

Until then, take a look at the As Seen gallery here.

NYFW Favourites #2 : In the detail

the-row-nyfw-ss14-morrocan-slippers-natalie-solomon-fashion-illustration

Draped in rustic shades and thrown on layers, The Row did it again. I especially loved the burnt orange fabrics – lazy afternoons in the Moroccan sun anyone?

So we already know the mule heel is making a come back (not too sure about that), but now The Row brought backless leather loafers to the runway at NYFW last week and I must admit I LOVE them!

NYFW Favourites: #1

jason-wu-fashion-illustration-nyfw

Jason Wu nailed it. I absolutely loved this collection which just graced NYFW a few days ago.

Drenched in various shades of ivory, slate and navy, the collection was sophisticated, polished & elegant (staying true to Jason’s style), teaming sequins, pretty skirts and sheer & silk bias-cut dresses with masculine tailoring, lightweight safari jackets and baggy sweatshirts making everything feel so effortless. One thing is for sure, come Spring heads will be turning!

…and then there was the mermaid gowns. Simple, bias-cut, filmy silk dresses smothered with tulle at the bottom. Perhaps I like them so much because my mind is in full-swing wedding mode, but I don’t think I’m the only one with my eyes on them… I am sure we will be seeing these beauties again!

Since I made this post so many more amazing looks have popped up too – I can’t keep up! Stay tuned…

Fall Favourites: Flats

burberry-hearts-fashion-illustration-nataliesolomon

The beginning of September officially marks the end of Summer with crisp autumn days just around the corner. (That said, the rest of this week is going to be a scorcher in London so I’m going to be enjoying these last few rays while I can!)

Anyway, with Fashion week around the corner (yes, it’s back to school) it’s time to start looking at my fall favourites. Lets start with the practical flats – why am I so drawn to these Burberry heart-print slippers??

Whats on the top of your fall wishlist?
