Chadstone sits down with stylist Lana Wilkinson

 

You recently styled the beautiful Clementine McVeigh for Chadstone;
can you talk us through your thoughts and inspiration for each outfit?

LUXE, FEMININE AND FUN

The Fall 2017 Valentino dress reminds me of the 60’s era, so I modernised it by pairing it with the Gucci waist belt, the Maje biker boot and the season’s must have, the Chanel ‘Boy’ Bag. The Biker boot is a must have for the season, you can also pair with denim for a more casual look. DRESS BY VALENTINO, BELT BY GUCCI, BAG BY CHANEL, AND SHOES BY MAJE.

HIGH TEA MEETS HIGH FASHION

Leather is a winter staple item and the sun might not be shining every day, but sunglasses are the accessory you can wear all year round. This season it is about mixing prints so we wanted to showcase that with the Fall 2017 Ferragamo leather print dress & Gucci bag - this look is probably one of my favourites. I also wanted to showcase it’s versatility by pairing it back with a dusty pink pair of Moncler trainers and statement Ferragamo eyewear. Tiffany & Co.’s gold “T” Jewellery finished the look, adding a touch of glamour to an otherwise casual look. DRESS AND GLASSES BY FERRAGAMO, BANGLE BY TIFFANY & CO., BAG BY GUCCI, AND SHOES BY MONCLER.

FROM DAY TO NIGHT

Clementine is a mother to a young daughter, so we wanted to ensure we showcased her go-to look whilst in centre. Maje’s new season is all about fashion and function, everything in the store can almost be worn from day to night. She’s often on the go, so I chose a statement bangle from Tiffany and Co that added just enough glam. Clementine is known for her love of Gucci and we wanted to include that vibe in the look, so the Maje pieces were paired with a Gucci belt and loafer. JACKET, T-SHIRT AND SKIRT BY MAJE, BAG AND BELT BY VALENTINO, HAT BY HUSK, BELT AND SHOES BY GUCCI, AND BANGLE BY TIFFANY & CO.

EFFORTLESS CHIC

Clementine loves statement print, so I wanted to showcase the fashion line that Moncler has in store, it truly is on another level. Ensuring the statement print top & pant was the hero of the shot, we paired a gold Saint Laurent bag and shoes, Tiffany & Co jewels with a blush pink coat from Sandro. Melbourne’s weather is unpredictable and ofter requires wearing layers. This look is a great alternative to denim if you want to look effortless for a night out or lunch/dinner date. CO-ORD BY MONCLER, JACKET BY SANDRO, SHOES AND BAG BY YSL, AND JEWELLERY BY TIFFANY & CO.
