Toughen Up

This winter you can say goodbye to flowy frocks and welcome this seasons aggressive fashion with a sexy feeling. Think strong shapes, edgy silhouettes and powerfull dressing.

The New Goth

Black is, and always will be the classic colour. But know it’s time to shake things up a bit and mix different textures. Leather with softer, matter fabrics as seen at Christopher Kane, is a great look.


Studs, buckles, beading, zips and chains will surely add a good amount of attitude to your outfit. A fitted dress with beaded details, buckle ankle boots or a studded blazer are all great choices.

Biker Chic

The leather biker jacket has become a popular trend this fall. Wear with jeans for a casual look or with a dress to toughen up the look.


The man look has reached it’s highs with the tux, crispy white shirt and lace-ups. Work the trend wearing a blazer with sharp lines or go all the way and opt for D&G’s black tie-ish tuxedo with big shoulders and long sleeves. Avoid looking too manly, though – try adding a red lipstick for femininity.

i LOVE this tough look, but i still feel that it was started off at a previous season by junya watanabe who sent his model down the catwalks all punked out and with studs everywhere. i bought so many things from that collection, shoes especially! then so many designers came out with similar things after that. i think burberry's stuff were gorgeous too. i loved them.
