This week saw me starting my first week working at Vogue, as part of the team coordinating this year’s Fashion’s Night Out which is taking place in Manchester on October 10th. After just 1 week working there, I have already found many exciting new designers to delve into, the first of these being Delfina Delettrez.
Delfina Delettrez, owner of her eponymous jewellery label, harks from the Fendi family and so has fashion in her blood. Her jewellery is eclectic; it ranges from delicate, dainty chains with tiny charms, to bejewelled necklaces, skeleton hand bracelets and chunky metal bangles. There’s something for every taste, so long as you’re not averse to colour and life in your adornments. She is a favourite of fellow accessories designer Charlotte Olympia, amongst others. The best piece? The small hoops decorated with gems and pearls. A perfect fusion of femininity and androgyny.
Having recently been introduced to the life-consuming wonder that is Game of Thrones, life has been infiltrated with new inspirations for flowing summer hairstyles. There is only one household to blame for this – House Targaryen. Both Viserys and Daenerys are blessed with hair so blonde it’s almost white, through which runs a beautiful soft wave. Not only that, they have mastered the art of the plait (or the hairstylists on set have).
Viserys undeniably has the cooler hairstyle, sitting just above his shoulders, the kind of hair I would love to work this summer, but alas I do not have a stylist at my disposal day and night to make it look that perfect.
Just a quick tangent whilst on the subject of Danaerys: the costume designer should be congratulated for their (deliberate or not) nod to Alexander Wang in some of her outfits. The outfit below is particularly Wang-esque due to the reptilian material, structure and strap detailing across the chest.
Back to hair though, and the stuff dreams are made of; the ultimate in summer hair goes to Drew Barrymore and her bubblegum pink mane.
Evidently this is not the easiest shade to work, in terms of both the upkeep and limitations to clothing colour. But hey, when your hair looks like that, it’s totally worth it.
