What Would I Wear….To the Christian Louboutin Exhibition
I came across clothing company Rika today. Rika are based in Amsterdam and was set up in 2005 by Ulrika Lundgren, who was previously a stylist. The brand is described as being a bit rock’n’roll mixed with romantic vintage and the clean Scandinavian aesthetic the designer grew up with. What I liked most about the brand was its laid-back style and its stars. Stars feature on many of their pieces, and who doesn’t love seeing stars.
I so much prefer baggy tops with shorts….baggy jumpers, loose mens shirts, baggy t-shirts and this jumper with these patterned silky shorts looks perfect. And as for wedge trainers. Well, at first, I liked them, especially, of course, the Isabel Marant pair (which, after a lot of procrastinating over, I’ve come to the conclusion they’re a little too bulky for my liking), but I never saw myself wearing them. I thought they were too high-trend, not worth spending £150 on for them to only last a season. However, when I was in Doyles last week, I picked up the Ash pair below and fell for them and its actually the colours of this pair which are what inspired me to write this post. They add a touch of sport-luxe to this outfit, they don’t dress it up, but adding height, make the whole ensemble stand out. With a pair of bronzed legs and a loose backcombed pony-tail, this outfit is perfectly comfortable for wandering around a Christian Louboutin exhibition at the Design Museum on a Saturday morning, which is exactly what I’ll be doing tomorrow!
