OHNE TITEL – YVES SAINT LAURENT

There are days when I feel as though I would like to cover up with draping fabrics and other days a vibrant bodycon dress fits my mood perfectly – today is quite obviously a mood suited to the latter! The Ohne Titel following has been slowly building and I can certainly see why; amazing fabrics, beautiful cuts and enormous originality. This dress in particular is perfect for both my pregnant and post-pregnant form as the heavier fabric holds my shape, while the ‘just colourful enough’ tones ensure I don’t feel too exposed wearing such a fitted piece (something that you can often feel in the late stages of pregnancy I am finding)…

RITMO PRENATAL STIMULATION SOUND SYSTEM

Whilst pregnant, I have of course had the thoughts (pre-programmed?) that I should be playing a continual loop of Mozart to my unborn baby in the hope that he will appreciate the music as much as myself and the Swede do and will grow up to be a classically trained musician, or at least know his Puccini from his Vivaldi. Holding my tiny earphones or substantially larger iPad dock to my stomach would prove neither effective nor practical, but one absolutely amazing product was brought to my attention that I will be forever grateful for is the RITMO sound system.

The RITMO is unique in its design, unbelievably comfortable and delivers sound to the baby using 4 perfectly placed speakers on the waistband – the answer to just how I would be able to deliver music to this little person while still being able to do everything my day requires (I suspect that styling a shoot with just one hand while the other holds and iPod dock would be no mean feat!)

CHLOE – STELLA MCCARTNEY – ACNE

Super relaxed Sunday and feeling super tired! Over 8 months pregnant and finally feeling the effects of my lovely baby, as in, how enormous he is (or at least how enormous he feels!) Sleepless nights, heavier than I have ever been and the poor Swede sharing my lack of hours in deep slumber are certainly making me wish this little chap would join us in the world very soon…

BONTON CHILDREN'S CLOTHING

As the arrival of my baby draws ever-closer, thoughts are leading to his wardrobe, nursery and all other such baby necessities that in my job as a fashion editor I have yet to experience. I have been guided by my eternally chic girlfriends and everything is coming together, not least his incredible little wardrobe of chic clothing!

 

BONTON is an adorable French children’s outfitter, which is the perfect aesthetic for the classic (predominantly French it seems) collection I am putting together for this little person. Exceptionally well made and perfectly designed pieces fill the boys and girls collections, all classically tailored and available from the age of 0-12.

 

If I had time between being a new mother, MaternallyChic and my agreement to still consult for brands while I am on maternity leave from Harper’s Bazaar, then I would have launched another sartorial blog for my little boy…but I think with everything else that is happening in my life, that may be a little too adventurous!

LANVIN – YVES SAINT LAURENT

Olympic celebration cocktails this evening at an ex-Olympic competitor friends house. I know he no longer wishes to compete (I shall not divulge his age!) but is unbearably excited about seeing the competitors in the category he once competed in. I for one have no idea just when they will be on the field as I am rather consumed with decorating my soon-to-arrive son’s nursery with The Swede, but with aforementioned Swede being an enormous sports fan, I am very sure nursery plans will be placed on hold in the very near future!

 

An easy and elegant Lanvin dress will be the choice for this balmy London evening…

BALENCIAGA – JONATHAN SAUNDERS – JIMMY CHOO

At this late stage in my pregnancy and the weather being so wonderfully warm, all I wanted to wear today was loose clothing…this is certainly not my usual style (yes, I am going back 8 months in my mind, when my Alaia and other favoured bodycon pieces still fitted!) but one has to submit to a little comfort dressing sometimes and today is without doubt one of those days…30oc outside and 8 months pregnant is no time for bodycon anything!

DOLCE & GABBANA MAINLINE CHILDRENSWEAR COLLECTION

 

Sighs of disappointment came from so many when it was announced that D&G Junior would be closing along with the adult D&G line, but the newly launched Dolce&Gabbana mainline children’s collection from the ever-inspired pairing proves that it was the right decision.

The focus of this new children’s collection is based purely on the highest level of tailoring that is so evident in the already greatly coveted Dolce & Gabbana mainline adult collection. Dominico and Stefano are designers who refuse to launch any collection without great thought, attention to detail and sourcing of only the finest fabrics for each garment and this is wildly evident in this chic collection for 0-10 year olds.

As much as the collection is highly luxurious, practicality was still a priority, which for any parent is an important factor. Messrs Dolce & Gabbana said of their new line “We interviewed all the mothers because the collection must be practical. We learned a lot, plenty of details. For example, it’s better to have sleeveless onesies and freedom of movement – kids don’t want to feel too constricted. The line is conceived as a further expansion of the Dolce & Gabbana world, this is an homage to Italy and to our tradition. It’s part of our culture and marks one of the most important moments in our lives.” It shows.

Being a fashion editor for the past 10 years, I am not blinded by pure aesthetics and can honestly say that this is one collection that can, without any doubt, be passed down for generations due to the level of craftsmanship of each piece.

The Dolce & Gabbana mainline children’s collection launches this month.

9LONDON BRILLIANT BUST CREAM

9London owner Emily Evans is a genius. It’s that simple. From launching her clothing line to developing her unbelievably effective creams, she is one of the clear leaders in a market that has grown considerably in recent years. Over 10 years of experience designing exclusive maternity wear and developing products that ensure your body returns to its pre-pregnancy form gives her the edge over so many other brands that have appeared on the market since her launch.

I am honored to be one of the first to receive the ‘Brilliant Bust Cream’, which arrived in 9London’s unique packaging yesterday and I can safely say that the luxurious, heavenly cream will undoubtedly give the same incredible results that the ‘Super Stretch Mark Cream’ has over the past months since I started using it.

I cannot claim that the bust cream works (unless I wake up tomorrow, having used the cream for 48 hours, with a whole new look!), but what I can say is that 9London founder Emily Evans would not allow any of her products to be launched without knowing they were of the same high standard of all other creams in her range – she has spent the past 10 years building a flawless reputation, that much I can confirm…

PHILLIP LIM

Without doubt Phillip Lim is one of my favourite designers, pregnant or not pregnant, for both his designs and personality – such a dream! I have worn a number of pieces by Phillip that I know will look equally amazing once I am back to my pre-pregnancy size and this divine dress is one of them…

HARRODS LAUNCH OF NEW TOY KINGDOM

If you want to get lost in a heavenly world of the most exquisite toys and inventive, original games, then you absolutely must head to the new Toy Kingdom at Harrods. The press launch was a rather early 8.30am this morning (my reluctant, but ever-charming Swede and I arrived at a more reasonable 9.30am) and I could not have thought of a more entertaining, delightful way to spend a Sunday morning. Well, any morning for that matter! Room upon room of the brightest, most enticing children’s products were floor to ceiling, the decor utterly magical and the atmosphere more alive than you could possibly imagine. Harrods, you have absolutely outdone yourself – the store with the reputation as being the finest in the world has certainly cemented that fact with yet another triumph.
