It's the first of February, can you believe it and ... its here! With exactly two weeks to go, I give you the first of Mouthful of Style's Valentine's Day gifts guides.
I thought a lot about this key gifting period and I know and respect that a lot of people do not like Valentine's Day (Hollywood even made a movie about it)! So I have created three luxury indulgent gift guides custom to everyone's needs: One for her (today's post), one for him and one for yourself. Whatever you decide to do on February 14th, take the time to indulge in something luxurious.

A glimpse of my favourite looks from the final installment of the A/W'13 European menswear shows coming from Paris Fashion Week. Three distinctive trends stood out: leather, print (especially PJ-print for men which I actually love since it was my favourite trend of 2012 for women), and again oversized trousers as seen in the London shows here. All the shows played on volume this season which is definitely a more casual change from the easy-to-look-good-in tailored look. European men's shows are now over but women's shows are just around the corner. Excited to see what's next.

Spring is around the corner (or at least that is what I keep telling myself as the weather just dropped significantly in London and snow is on the horizon tomorrow)! My newest discovery with womenswear label SUNO has my eye happily focused on Spring. My obsession with my favorite trends of 2012 (see post here) continues with SUNO's SS13 collection. Peplum and silk blouses (PJ-inspired obvi) along with tailored jackets to give an edge will be my look this Spring. See more from SUNO available soon at NET-A-PORTER.

I had the most fantastic time in Milan and the highlight was without a doubt attending the Burberry Prorsum menswear show. The show was truly a production. In addition to the beautiful fashions presented on the runway, the venue, backdrop, lighting and music featuring British musician Amy Macdonald and Burberry Acoustic musician Jake Bugg tied it all together encouraging a breathtaking <sigh> when the lights went down. See full show video here.

Inspirations: “Texan oil baron, "a local hero", Shetland.”
Inspiration: "It's a show that is inspired by all things John Waters and a special interest in marquetry."
Inspiration: "Being young, living and growing up in the Hebrides, exiled in the most remote corner of the British Isles inspired the AW13 collection."
Signatures: "Innovative, functional and fun."
The second ever London Fashion Week for men's collections ended yesterday. The city is still buzzing from the shows and my picks of the best looks are above. First impression: Baggy pants ruled the runway. A mix of classic British elegance with double-breasted jackets as seen at E.Tautz and modern street style at Christopher Raeburn were my favorites. Tomorrow I am off to Milan for Milan Fashion Week. More men's show coverage to come.

After a long yet hopefully productive day at work, there is nothing better to me than coming home and catching up on the latest fashion magazines, watching my favorite TV series in the background and putting my Louboutin-clad feet up. Trend alert for Spring: must have stripes!

Pajamas & the Silk Printed Blouse
Happy New Year! Lots came down the runway in 2012 but if I had to remember 2012 in distinctive trends it would be these four hands-down. All so embraced in only 2012, I actually worked all four trends into my wardrobe last year with my favorite being pajamas! See my previous trend posts on the printed blouse here and baroque here. Did I leave out a trend you particularly enjoyed? Let me know. Now onto 2013!
