After making her shocking debut this season for Marc Jacobs in New York, it was clear Kendall Jenner was getting ready to take over the industry. The 18 year-old TV star has walked in only a handful of Fall’14 shows but has made a huge statement modelling for fashion giants, a dream job for any aspiring model. Although her connections from Kimye (Kanye sat front row at Givenchy) no doubt had some influence on her being booked by these top designers, there was no sign of a Kardashian member in the audience today as she walked the Chanel show in Paris. It seems distancing herself from her reality family could be what she needs to secure her place as a serious model in the fashion world, and I’m rooting for her.

New York Fashion Week has come to an end and if I took anything away from the past 8 days; it’s that I need to purchase a fabulous new coat for Fall. Designers got creative this season with their outerwear from colorful furs to crazy prints; here’s the best of the bunch.
I love tumblr. For years I withheld from joining yet another media platform but finally caved… follow me at stylecollated.tumblr.com for fashion inspo and street style photography.
Hollywood’s latest darling Lupita Nyong’o is also causing a stir in the fashion world with hit after hit on the red carpet. She hasn’t had a miss yet and as a nominee for the upcoming Academy Awards in March we have more major moments to come; fashion officially has a new ‘it’ girl on their hands.
It’s just 2 weeks to go until Peter Pilotto for Target is on sale, and with a Mexico vacation in April fast approaching I’m already picking out my must haves. The London-based duo who have dressed the likes of Miranda Kerr, Emma Watson and Selena Gomez are bringing their bold, colorful graphics to the masses. For me this is the best effort from a high-end designer going high street. The signature prints, color blocks and asymmetric hems are all there, on first glance of the lookbook you could easily be fooled this was their main collection. Prices start at $17 and it is sure to sell out quickly so mark February 9th in your diaries now!
We saw the skate shoe last Summer after Celine and Givenchy first released their laundry print and floral lace styles respectively, and we can safely say that they are here to stay! Comfortable, edgy and stylish, the skate shoe is the perfect accomplice for style on the run. After some reluctance I finally gave in, but couldn’t quite stomach the hefty £450 price tag that comes with the Celine pair so opted for an ASOS pair for under £20 (below). They look best paired with ankle length relaxed trousers or faux leather joggers but equally cute with shorts or skirts.
So, whether you’re feeling like a splurge or looking for chic on a budget, these are our favourite skate shoes to invest in now…
1. Givenchy Lace Shoes, £445
2. Miu Miu Cap Toe Shoes, $490
3. Celine Laundry Print Shoes, £450 – the godfather of skate shoes
4. Celine Croc Shoes, £450
1. ASOS Print Skate Shoes, £18
2. Kurt Geiger Blue Snake Shoes, £85
