I was very thrilled to receive an email from Camilla and Marc today, letting me know that their new site is now up and running. This is their AW 10 collection lookbook, and I have to admit that I want nearly everything from it.
That double bullet belt, the sparkle shirts, the draped jackets, the killer navy peacoat, the asymmetrical jackets.
But given my saving plan, the only thing I think I can just about afford is the lovely belt. Mmmm. The way to order is to contact them (contacts listed on the website) and order. Or atleast that's how I did it with my leopard print boots.
p.s. how awesome are the shoes from the current RAFW collection???!!?!

I almost feel offended with the recent spate of "Shakahuchi/Ginger and Smart/Camilla and Marc/Ellery is fab/great/insert other appropriate adjective" posts by US bloggers that have littered the world wide web of late. Yes, RAFW is on. Yes, I'm aware that these Australian labels are not made exclusively for the Australian and New Zealand market but I have to admit that it was nice a few months back when I was swanning around in my unique Ellery/Ginger and Smart/Camilla and Marc frivolously fabulous clothing, not having to worry about:
But I'm sure the designers and designing houses don't feel the same as I do. The aim is to spread the word, right? And to be honest, I realise that its inevitable that we've reached a stage in fashion where Australian designers are leading the pack and are known for outstanding quality and design. I mean, why not?!!?! However I've always been the kind of person who likes not only creativity but who also values individuality above everything else. So when I see the prominent US bloggers now posting regularly about our coveted Australian labels, I cringe a little. Nay, a lot. I somehow feel like these exclusive beautiful brands are now being made commonplace. Just like those Jeffrey Campbell mirror wedges, I don't want to have to be turned off by seeing every blogger on earth (slight exaggeration intended) and their dog wearing these pieces. Whinger? Yes, yes, I am.
p.s. I love Americans...I'm just rueing our lovely brands (cough*lookingatyouMinkPink*cough) becoming everyday wear such that these items lose their golden touch or, even worse, become commonplace. Noooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo....
