nina: Kate Sylvester blouse, Zara military jacket w/ leather sleeves, Proenza Schouler PS1 bag
Friday night marked the Wellington launch of Kate Sylvester’s S/S 12/13 ‘All my heart’ collection, which I hopped along to with my good friend Nina. There were lashings of lace, silk satin floor length gowns, and boxy tuxedo jackets in a mixture of pastels and bold gem tones. True to form, many of the pieces were incredibly feminine, in light sheer fabrics, nipping in at the waist, and included many of Sylvester’s signature style pieces. Not only did the clothing resemble a modern take on the 1920’s era, but the inspiration extended all the way to the accessories, with mint or black spectator shoes to match. It was tempting to try on most of the store, but in the meantime I’m waiting to find an excuse to purchase one of the gorgeous floor length gowns.
