Yves Saint Laurent: Style is Eternal

"Fashion fades, style is eternal." Yves Saint Laurent. 


Over the years I've learnt not to take trends so seriously; don't get me wrong, I love them but when you become too wound up in what's current and on the runways, you lose sight of what's truly  important, style. In the wise words of Yves Saint Laurent, 'Style is eternal', a statement that really resonates with me. Personal style means a great deal to me, so I'm delighted to have been chosen to participate in an exclusive competition in collaboration with Farfetch, to showcase and celebrate the opening of the Yves Saint Laurent: Style is Eternal Exhibition.
The Exhibition will showcase the life and work of the designer and the artistic vision behind what has shaped women's fashion through the ages. To find out more about the Exhibition and perhaps get yourself a ticket to the show, opening in October, visit The Bowes Museum website.


As part of the competition criteria, I had to create an outfit using exclusively Saint Laurent pieces centred around the Iconic Smoking Jacket, and incorporate the theme of timeless style that can be donned from season to season. It was such an enjoyable experience to put together this ensemble thanks to Farfetch, who had just the right pieces to  make my outfit timeless.



Working with the Iconic Smoking Jacket, I knew I had to add some colour to my timeless look. The Lulu Lamé Dress stood out to me as a perfect fit for the jacket; its colour scheme and texture are both modern yet have a vintage feel, something that I love. The mesh and the studded straps add the modern edge to the classic styled dress, and I've paired it with a classic black 'Jane' Sandal to match the jacket. When it came to bags and accessories, I chose minimal jewellery to allow the pieces to speak for themselves; the statement Monogram Earrings worked well with the Monogram Clutch. I chose a maroon clutch to draw all the colours together, and I just adore the finished look!

A big thanks to Farfetch for the opportunity to style a look surrounding the Yves Saint Laurent Iconic Smocking Jacket, I thoroughly enjoyed it.

What do you think of my Yves Saint Laurent look? Do you agree that 'Fashion fades, style is eternal?
