I received an e-mail from the lovely team at Far Fetch recently, asking me if I'd like to create a look using all YSL products with the iconic le smoking tuxedo jacket at the centre of the outfit. This is in honour of their latest exhibition; Style is eternal. Of course this originates from the iconic designers most famous quote "Fashion fades, style is eternal". In collaboration with The Bowes Museum and Fondation Pierre BergĂ© the exhibition showcases the french designers life and of course his work - which has made its mark within fashion history. The Bowes Museum has previously exhibited the workings of Laura Ashley and Vivienne Westwood just to name a couple, I think it's safe to say the exhibition shan't be short from spectacular. The exhibition shall run from August 8th all the way until October 25th, so if there's a spare date in your diary this definitely isn't one to miss out on. 

You can visit the Bowes Museum page here and purchase tickets for the exhibition via ticketmaster here. If you wish, you can purchase YSL pieces and other designer items directly from Far Fetch here. 

The look I have created follows the same theme of the exhibition; 'Style is Eternal'. First and foremost, when has black not ever been on trend? We initially entered the world of television through a black and white screen and with the monochrome trend coming back into fashion this A/W '15 through the likes of the classic Diane Von Furstenberg monochrome coat, which you can check out in my previous trend post here. Brown and nude tone shades have always been a classic winner in my eyes, it's just such a wearable, day to day colour. The gladiators knew what they were doing when they strolled around in their brown sandals! Lastly, there's nothing wrong with a bit of gold to sparkle up any outfit. These YSL pieces are timeless, statement classics which you can re-wear eternally. 

Side note: Style Tip! When opting for the evening luxe trend, wear the scarf loose to create a layering effect. Just like the different lengths of your hair, having a different length coat, skirt and scarf shall give your outfit more texture and add a bit of interest throughout the autumn and winter months. For the daytime diva approach, where as shown in the picture above to portray a comfortable and relaxing vibe. 


I hope you liked this post lovelies - once again something a little different but I've been really loving including more fashion related posts onto my blog lately, I love make-up but the amount of beauty posts has been getting a bit much! Until next time,
