If it’s one look I love it’s old Hollywood glamour, not something you can usually wear from day to day, but spectacular none the less. However, recently I was told to check out Friends of Couture, an Australian brand that, with their S/S10 collection, has given Old Hollywood an everyday twist. Whether you are a young ingénue or a femme fatale there is something to suit your style, floral tops and polka dot frocks are mixed with sculpted cocktail dresses and hot red knits to cover everyone from Marilyn Monroe to Grace Kelly. The best thing about the collection is that even though it is designed for the Aussie summer, most of the pieces can be styled into the English autumn for that “Oh, I look fabulous? But I just threw it on” look.
