      Layering masterclass 2.0

      One of the standout trends for this summer’s resort 2012 collections is the triple-layered look. Pick up a pair of trousers, throw a tunic or dress over the top and finish with a shirt or jacket et voila! You’re right on trend for the new-tiered silhouette.

      The secret to layering in style is to keep the look sleek with fine knits and a belt, and think contrasts: short sleeves, such as a cropped jacket over something long, like a Tluxe organic cotton Ling T-shirt; mix up your lengths, fabrics and accessories but keep them all in different tones of the same colour; or take a tip from style mavens like our very own Yasmin Sewell (pictured above), the former creative consultant for Liberty and all-round layering maestro.

      We love Yasmin’s way with a dress over trousers, and doubling up two dresses in one outfit.  Layering is still one of the easiest and most impressive sartorial tricks to have up your sleeve. And it's a great way to wear a new summer dress before the full heat of summer hits. So get to it.

      New York Fashion Week's front row seat

      The hardcore fashion fans among you will know that New York Fashion Week, showing the first of the new spring/summer 2012 collections, kicks off tomorrow (September 8). And now Youtube is live-streaming the catwalk action via it’s Liverunway website, there’s no excuse for any of us not to be ahead of the fashion curve come summer. Our personal not-to-be-missed tip is the return of Helmut Lang to the catwalk. But if, like us, you’d prefer to be sleeping than staying up to catch your favourite designers in real time, there’s also plenty of post-show features, and behind-the-scenes details, including round-ups of the new season trends. What's not to love?

      Dance into the week... with Charlotte and Alber

      We’re loving the new dance-themed films coming our way right now. One of our favourite French film stars, the effortlessly cool Charlotte Gainsbourg, isn’t afraid to shake her groove thing in the music video for her debut single, Terrible Angels on what will be her fourth album, Stage Whisper out this November. 

      And while there’s been plenty of acclaim around the new film Pina by director Wim Wenders on the late dance choreographer Pina Bausch, the prize for the most entertaining cinematic moves this month arrives care of legendary Lanvin designer, Alber Elbaz.

      In what must be a first for a luxury brand, Elbaz and models including Karen Elson and Raquel Zimmermann, dispense of the usual seductive posing of designer campaigns for an informal, tongue-in-cheek dance routine. We hope it makes you smile as much as we did.

      Something for the weekend...Tracey Emin

      We love that Tracey Emin's neon artwork More Passion is now hanging in 10 Downing Street. If you've just missed her latest work at London's Hayward Gallery, and like us, don't mind mixing culture with a little retail therapy, pop into Louis Vuitton Maison on New Bond St if you're in town to see the Brit artist's new works and maybe even buy one Tracey's limited edition silk scarves she's made especially for them, appropriately titled (given our location and love of the city), Sex 21 Sydney (2011).
