Taking style cues from the caldo Milan catwalk, the fashion pendulum swings in our favour this season as we return to a nostalgic nod to ladylike separates and formal accessories for fall; With that in mind, nothing could be more appropriate for the VAUGHAN brand aesthetic than this mushroom suede Gucci Dionysus shoulder bag.
Worshipping at the alter of accessories this season, the fashion pack has split into two camps – big and bold and subtle sophistication. If you're anything like me, you'll be rallying for the latter. Opting for a glint of gold in lieu of the all out accessory overload taking place in the Prada camp, just a touch of razzle dazzle is all we need to satisfy our magpie-like lust for all things shiny.
With that in mind, nothing says ladies who lunch better than this beautifully embroidered bee bag carefully crafted by Alessandro Michele. A subtle ode to vintage wares and style icons of fashion's past, feel like Grace of Monaco as you sashay down the side walk, swaddled in a cashmere twinset and swinging this refined and sophisticated little number.
Dealing in details, fashion looks to the finer things in life with collections for next spring shimmering with gold inlays, soft textured jacquards and tasteful separates from the the 50s style vaults. Harking back to an era when the camel coat reigned supreme and handbags were the ultimate style staple, we look to the Dionysus Gucci handbag for inspiration.
A simple yet effective shoulder bag for cocktails at Claridges or VIP flash bulb events, this nude mushroom shoulder bag with embroidery detailing, crafted clasp and chain shoulder strap is a clever little celebration of the VAUGHAN brand, highlighting the bumble bee discretely embroidered on the lower inside placket of each VAUGHAN shirt. The unofficial mascot of the VAUGHAN brand, this Dionysus bag is the perfect sidekick for the upscale pussy bow blouse that stands out as a central piece in the collection.
Pair this discreet yet luxurious Gucci shoulder bag with a grown up ensemble that subtly whispers sartorial success. Teamed with a 50s revival camel coat from Rag and Bone, dress up the VAUGHAN virgin white Cassie blouse with the wasp waist Roland Mouret pencil skirt in powder pink, lace up pointed heels from Lane Crawford and a glint of gold with these golden south-sea pearl earrings.
Dressing like the queen bee you are has never felt so effortless thanks to the Milan fashion pack and their gutsy move to take us back to tasteful elegance and timeless silhouettes.
