Paris Fashion Week SS 2012...Emilie

Emilie Noel, before Rick Owens, Paris, September 2011.

It is always lovely to come across photographs from previous seasons that seem just perfect for now. My friend Emilie (who is Canadian but lives in Paris) looks so pretty and fresh in her boxy top, detachable collar and up and er, down, skirt (I have no idea what these skirts are called* so I am just going to go with "up and down" for now!).

Recreate Emilie's Look (kind of):

Revitalise a basic top with Karl sequined collar or Topshop Splodge sequin collar (which kind of reminds me of a Marni collar I saw in a magazine) or Dannijo peter pan Stella collar (a keep forever piece...half necklace/half collar, totally gorgeous)

Marc by Marc Jacobs Esther Oxford Top (it isn't navy but I love the boxy shape and colour of this top), No. 21 Graphic Tee with detachable collar or Preen Honey top with contrasting pink peter pan collar

Mason by Michelle Mason dipped hem skirt or Girl. by Band of Outsiders Althea printed dipped hem skirt  (such a pretty rose print for summer) or Topshop earth printed dipped hem skirt (Topshop have a great selection of these skirts. This one is my pick).

Acne Pistol stacked heel ankle boots (Peony has just bought a pair of these. So cute and versatile) or Rachel Comey Huron perforated booties.
*So apparently they are called dipped hem skirts. Much better than my clumsy "up and down" description :)


  1. she and her outfit are really pretty

  2. It's called a mullet skirt. Lovely look. Your photos have the most amazing dreamy touch to them. :)

  3. This is a gorgeous simple outfit. I like the addition of the collar

  4. lovely collar!


  5. Love it! Collar is stunning

  6. @Myra - ahhhh! AWESOME! I love it - a mullet skirt! That is a brilliant description. Although I can't say that word without thinking of the 80's mullet à laAndre Agassi, Richie Sambora, Michael Bolton....and lets not forget Billy Ray!

  7. Haha I thought it was a mullet skirt as well! Pretty sure that's we people are calling them in Aus :) Although "dipped hem" makes them sound nicer.
