Style Note: The Isabella Oliver Cape

Posted by London Darling

Yesterday was one of those cold and breezy days in London when you really need something warm and snug to wrap up in. And what better way to wrap up than in a cape. It's the perfect alternative to a winter coat. I received this beautiful one as a Christmas Gift from one of my favourite labels Isabella Oliver.

London Fashion Week Diary: BODYAMR

Posted by London Darling

The BODYAMR show was one that I was particularly looking forward to, and it was well worth the wait. The signature draping that I love still played a huge role in the collection as an abundance of luxe fabrics and beaded embellishment.

Beauty Buzz: Liz Earle Naturally Active Skincare

Posted by London Darling

I recently changed my beauty regime to include the Cleanse and Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser, the Instant Boost Skin Tonic and Skin Repair Moisturiser. It's been just six days, and already I've seen a noticeable difference in the clarity of my complexion and the texture of my skin.

Eyola - Acrifa Collection

Africa Fashion Week starts in June and London is being represented by new luxury womenswear designer Aloye, who will be unveiling her latest collections at the Johannesburg fashion show. Having studied at the Istituto Europeo di Design in Milan and interned at Alexander McQeueen, her brand ‘Eyola’ is making quite a name for itself within the fashion industry.

The label presents a distinct and eclectic blend of Victorian aesthetics and modern-day couture. The inspirations behind Isimey - Eyola's debut collection include the historic work of Parisian fashion designer Charles Worth, remembered for the opulence and intricacy of his designs.

Isimey features the hallmarks of Victorian fashion, a splash of couture with a modern twist. Later collections Acrifa and Noiranche also achieve the clever merger of vintage style with contemporary ideas.

I love the concept of Eyola because not only is the brand incredibly visionary, but the collections also have wearability and longevity, which is key. Aloye's designs are currently sold at Pipa's Boutique on Warwick Avenue, London and online globally.

The label was recently featured in Italy's 'Fashion Magazine' and there's a packed schedule this year including Africa fashion week and the New designers exhibition in July. I think it's safe to say that we can expect a great future for this cutting-edge fashion house.
