I loved what Vogue Williams did with the Umit Kutluk ombre feathered skirt that I brought to our recent Weekend magazine shoot with her. Fair play to the Bear Grylls Mission: Survive victor, Vogue knew straight away that she loved its quirky, textural look, and better again, that she had the perfect baby blue Lucy Nagle cashmere jumper to go with it. Milliner Jennifer Wrynne created the chic and demure, side-of-the head beaded piece, and a pearl necklace completed Vogue's elegant lady look at the Fairyhouse races last Monday. I'm a huge fan of twinning light knits, with long sleeves casually pushed-up, with skirts boasting volume and interesting surface detail.
No one did it better than style icon Olivia Palmero (pictured above right) on her wedding day when she surprised quite a few with her choice of simple cream cashmere sweater with scattered ostrich feathers, white shorts and full tulle skirt overlay that cinched at the waist in layers of satin and silk, all by Carolina Herrera. If no one was expecting this look, they certainly weren't expecting bright cobalt blue Manolo Blahnik heels with crystal buckle - the same pair Carrie Bradshaw wore for her marriage to Mr Big in Sex and the City movie. GO TO: These are some handy fine knits that I found at Coast. Umit Kutluk's feather skirt (€670) is available to buy in blue (pictured on Vogue) from his studio at 27 Merrion Square, Dublin 2 and in pink from Arnotts, Henry Street.
