Fun fashion news from the world of INEZ Daily.

FYI: We’ll Be Right Back!!

Hello, my lovely fashion friends!

Over here at INEZ Daily HQ, we have a lot of fun, new, exciting projects in the works.

The reality of all this creative work-shopping however (…in addition to raising 2 small, adorable little people whist maintaining my day-job as a fashion stylist) is that there’s only so much ‘me’ to go around.

So, in an effort to maintain a semblance of sanity, I’ve decided to take a small break from our daily fashion updates.

But please do hang in there… we’ll be back (bigger and better than ever!!) before you know it 🙂

In the meantime, be sure to subscribe to our mailing list (in the box at the top of this page), in addition to our Instagram, Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest accounts to make sure you’re up to date with all the new developments.

See you real soon!

xoxo Inez.

FYI: Caron Callahan

I’m typically neither here-nor-there about bows – I totally understand how some people would like them, but they’ve just never really been ‘my thing’.

That is until I spotted this terracotta-hued trapeze shirt with the most perfect of oversized bows… and I made it my mission to discover its designer.

I’m pleased to report that my efforts were most definitely not in vain, as I’ve since discovered a wonderful new collection: Caron Callahan.

Named after the label’s owner and designer, Callahan cites the inspiration as ‘creative, spirited woman who loves fashion but don’t need to make a fuss about them’.

The result?

Pieces that are as much playful as they are wearable.

Does this sound like you?

You can find her current collection online at the following boutiques…

FYI: Cropped Jeans

There’s no easy way to tell you this…

If you’re wearing jeans and I can’t see your ankles, then you’re doing it all wrong!

In need of a little guidance?

FYI: La Ligne

Do you know what you get when you combine a lifetime of fashion savvy with a sentimental favourite?

You get La Ligne (…French for ‘Line’).

What is this curious alliance that I speak of?

It’s the creation of former Vogue editors Valerie Boster and Meredith Melling in addition to Molly Howard from rag & bone, who came together to translate that much-loved classic – the stripe and all of its flattering, timeless, democratic charm.

What will you find?

Everything from tanks, tees, blouses and knits through to the loveliest caftans, slips, skirts, shorts and pants… all a handsome homage to the stripe.

FYI: Mansur Gavriel Shoes

Over the years, many rules have been adopted around fashion.

One of the most enduring… that your shoes should match your handbag.

Do I agree?

Typically my allegiances sit more in the ‘should complement’ box as opposed to straight out matching.

But often ‘matching’ does look pretty cute.

And thankfully one of my favourite accessory brands has now given us this option.

Mansur Gavriel, they of the most handsome leather bags, totes, backpacks and wallets has released a range of shoes in the most delicious rainbow of coloured suedes and leathers.

FYI: Petite Grand MONA Collection

As a fashion stylist, I’ve reviewed many, many (many) collections.

One of my favourite things (aside from the fashion, naturally) is asking the designer about the story behind their collection – the inspiration or narrative that most influenced their designs.

My top pick lately?

Petite Grand’s AW16 ‘MONA’ collection, inspired by representations of love, sex and death in the works at The Museum Of Old And New Art – a place of curiosities and strangeness of the best kind.

Referencing iconography of the ancient world, the collection translates universal concepts into objects of adornment – the heart represents both the pounding muscle beneath our ribs and romantic love; The skull, death and our own mortality, with pieces that are designed to hold memories, represent experiences and spark moments of wonder.

FYI: Dôen

Next up on my roll-call of Great-New-Labels-That-I’ve-Discovered* is…

Dôen.

Founded in 2015 by sisters, Margaret and Katherine Kleveland, Dôen is the most delightful (read: really pretty) yet accessible (read: super well priced) collection of bohemian inspired pieces that set out to ‘celebrate motherhood, sisterhood and modern femininity’.

But aside from really lovely designs, they’re also seeking to address the gender imbalance in the women’s fashion industry that sees women designing, purchasing, and wearing the clothing but so rarely at the helm of fashion brands, by insisting that all of the factories Dôen employs in India and Peru be either owned or co-owned by women.

Keen to celebrate some sisterhood too?

FYI: Nikki Couppee Jewellery

Nikki Couppee’s bio lists her as “a jewellery artist and metalsmith working in plexiglass, acrylic resin, brass and steel”… which does her absolutely no service at all.

Whilst perfectly accurate, this description goes no way to describe the magically coloured confections that regularly spring forth from her imagination.

Equal parts opulent and whimsical, Nikki’s charmingly faceted clusters take shape in necklaces and earrings with a style and mind unto themselves.

“I’m seeking to create opulent jewellery that is reminiscent of royal jewellery but made out of everyday materials instead of precious gems and metals, with plexiglass, brass, steel, enamel and found objects standing in for gemstones, gold, and pearls”.

FYI: Black Crane

If your preference is for fashion that’s more considered and minimal with a nod to the avant garde, then you need to know about LA based label, Black Crane.

Born from a desire to create clothing that’s both complementary and comfortable, the result is seasonal collections of the loveliest, nuanced yet simple silhouettes with a distinctly architectural sensibility.

Oh, and did I mention that it’s also REALLY week priced?

Say no more, right?
