Absolutely beautiful; the Burberry tablet cover features black full-grain leather, brass studs throughout and an engraved brass clasp fastening. It’s listed as a menswear accessory, however, I think this is merely a matter of taste not gender….

Metallics in the summer looks pretty hot (pun intended). I love to see designers think outside the box and take risks but I’m not feeling this Miami Vice thing Christopher Bailey has going on. When it comes to suits keep it traditional and classy.. There were more acceptable looks starting at the 2:51 mark and of course lots of gorgeous coats and bags. Enjoy the show..

Solange Knowles heats up the pages of Glamour France July 2012 issue. This high fashion 8 page spread features Solo’s unique style. She delivers an eclectic, vintage flare in looks by contemporary designers; Cavalli, Burberry Prorsum, Ralph Lauren, Lanvin, Marc Jacobs never looked this dope.
Glamour asked Solo to describe her style. Here’s an excerpt from the interview:
“It is very eclectic because I like taking risks, but always with a touch of glamour and classic details. It isn’t necessarily fashion and magazines that inspire me. I surf a lot on blogs because I find it cool to see the looks of real people. My travels also influence me.”
She goes on to mention style icons Diana Ross, Erykah Badu, Bjork and Lauryn Hill as inspirations.

My Favorite things coats edition features Balmain, Gryphon, Burberry, 3.1 Phillip Lim and “The Perfect” leapord coat. Burberry topped the list with 3 entries I love the sherling and the full coat with African print. But the list would not be complete without a Burberry trench (of course) and this season they had many fabulous options including designs with ankara African wax print detail . View the gallery to see all of my picks below.

Africa ethnic wax prints have always been hot and Burberry affirms that with their latest Burberry Prorsum Resort 2012 Collection by Chris Bailey.
“African designers who are ahead in this wax print game, have some serious competition.” says fashion blogger Abadiva… AGREED, Burberry designed the ankara, wax print collection of my dreams!!! The coats, the dresses, the BAGS, Oh mon dieu! Is that Vlisco? More than likely.

Leather coats and jackets are definitely a fall essential. Versatile and functional; you can dress your leather up or down. I particularly like the style of this coat. It’s so retro if you’re lucky you may find a similar style lurking in your favorite vintage boutique. This chic red leather trench coat is from the Burberry Prorsum Resort 2012 collection.
