SOLID GOLD

Article excerpted from stylebubble.co.uk

For a girl who used to declare that gold was icky (I went through a very stubborn phase of refusing to wear any jewelery that was gold and only went for for silver), I seem to have accumulated a lot of it of late.  Specifically, black shiny surfaces plated with gold, as illustrated in the form of the Marios Schwab/Husam el Odeh for Topshop cigarette case, Miu Miu clutch and Lara Bohinc wallet.

So I guess I shouldn’t be too surprised that at the Modus press day, I fell headfirst for this Bally cut-out cigarette case and thigh high peeptoe (a shoe oxymoron, no?) boots with lattice metalwork around the heels from the new A/W 09 collection, creatively directed by Brian Atwood.  Combine all of the above and the pieces below and you really would be blinded.
