This week I've decided to base my 'Lusting After' post around an online retailer as I'm basically wanting everything from Avenue 32! Avenue 32 is an online luxury shopping website which features collections from emerging international talent and global brands such as 3.1 Phillip Lim, Carven and Derek Lam. I could only wish to afford all of these items but it's nice for a girl to dream!
Firstly, I've featured an array of sunglasses by Cutler and Gross which can be found in the accessories section of the Avenue 32 website. I know Summer is long gone, but I'm one of these people who still likes to wear sunglasses on those freezing cold but sunny Winter days. I love the style of these sunglasses, they are so unique and definitely make a statement. My favourite pair are the monochrome oversized round sunglasses as I tend to suit this shape and style. Most of these sunglasses are priced around £300 so they would be an investment that you could wear all year round.
Next up we have this collection of PVC garments from the Japanese brand Muviel which I had actually never heard of until browsing Avenue 32. PVC is set to be a massive trend for this upcoming season and you may already see some pieces trickling into the high street. I love the glossy effect of PVC garments and how they really stand out from the crowd. My favourite piece is the Muviel PVC clear mackintosh coat featuring the large white fur collar. I would love to wear this over a long sleeved knitted dress or really brightly coloured garments to create various illusions. I think this is such a statement piece and although it's priced at £895, I'm still going to keep wishing it falls into my hands one day!
Some other pieces I've picked out from the Avenue 32 website is this beautiful Carven pink crushed woollen skirt. Pink is also set to be a huge trend for this upcoming season and I love this bright shade of baby pink. I would wear this with a smart white shirt tucked into the waistline and a large statement necklace. I'm also loving these 3.1 Phillip Lime loafers as we all know just how much I love rose gold. These would be my ultimate shoes and would go with pretty much everything in my wardrobe! Last up, we have some accessories including this Luna Erziak tortoise shell shoulder bag which immediately stood out to me. I love anything tortoise shell, the pattern is really appealing and I love the neutral tones used. I also love this Cedric Charlier rose gold leather zip belt which would jazz up any outfit. I don't tend to wear belts as I've only recently become comfortable with jeans, baby steps...
