Summer doesn't have to always be drowned in colourful sunshine. Or at least when it comes to the city silhouette. With Harper's Bazaar and Carolyn Massey London internships in slick sight, I realised that my wardrobe needed to be sharpened up somewhat. I love fashion for its allowance and encouragement for ambituous design and expression, and my playful Soho side will always have time for electric colour. But the mature streak inside me has soaked in the silk lux and elegance of minimalism and shadowed colour blocking. Taking inspiration from Vivienne Westwood tartan, Ann Demeulemeester trench jackets, and the melted saturn silk tops from Raf Simons, I've found a seasonal balance and marriage between draped Summer comfort and the minimalist couture of a crisp Winter.
