Fashion in 5 with Olivia Cavill

This week PR and marketing manager Olivia from Ciaté talks wish-list lust, Spring trends and which Ciaté colours you’ll find in her beauty box.

What’s on your wish-list at the moment?

I’m forever building my wish list on ASOS and have a tendency to over-order; needless to say I am a premier customer! I love mixing high-street with designer accessories, my Celine handbag is my most cherished piece but I have had my eye on the Alexander Wang ‘Diego’ for a while now, so it will definitely be my next splurge.

2. Describe your own personal style?

I like classic styles with a bit of a twist! My go to is normally a pair of J brand’s, my current faves at the moment are my J Brand leather trousers, with a plain top, paired with my pastel banana and peaches ASH wedge trainers. I like to update classics with statement jewellery; I am a sucker for a killer pair of earrings or a chunky cuff. As a beauty buff I like to keep hair and make-up fresh and polished, Becca being my all-time favourite make up brand.

3. Which trends will you be working this season?

I adore the pastel trend which is back again for Spring ’14 and was all over the catwalks, so I can’t wait to wear my baby pink ankle-grazing skinny jeans once the warmer weather kicks in! I’m also lusting after the Pop Art print trend and will definitely be buying into this as a Spring update.

4. Tell us about your favourite nail polish and what you love about it?

I am probably biased but of course my favourite polish is going to be Ciaté for its good quality, high pigment and long-lasting manicure, and its vibrant array of over 120 colours. My go to is always ‘Iced Frappe’ for a mauve version of a nude. For a more vampy, evening look, I turn to ‘Dangerous Affair’ for the perfect rouge noir.

Ciate Nail Polish5. Your favourite under-rated brand?

I love AQ/AQ for instant ‘wow’ pieces – the brand is a stylist favourite, which I still don’t think has had its time in the spotlight yet. I am also really excited to see the first Whistles fashion show at London Fashion Week this spring, not just because it’s one of my favourite stores but it’s incredible to see a British high-street brand to be invited onto the global fashion stage.

I couldn’t agree more, I can’t wait to see what Whistles come up with to wow us at London Fashion Week.

Thanks Liv

Fashion in 5 with Zsofi Nora Peto from Net-a-Porter

I’ve been trying to get 5 minutes with someone at Net-A-Porter for months and when someone (the lovely Zsofi Nora Peto, editorial styling team assistant) finally got back to me, this is what Zsofi had to say…. short but sweet.

1. What’s on your wish-list at the moment?

A longboard and an adventurous US trip. I need sun not clothes. 🙂

2. Describe your own personal style?

Effortless- nice and easy. Mixing comfort with street-style elegance. Contrasts work well for me.

Net-A-Porter Edit(Edit from Net-A-Porter including Dominic Jones, Helmut Lang, Stella McCartney, Saint Laurent, Monica Vinader, Alexander Wang and Current/Elliott)

3. Which trends will you be working this season?

Currently I don’t really work with trends, sorry.

4. Your favourite under-rated brand?

My favourite brands are not under-rated at all!

Be honest, who doesn’t love a luxury brand or two….

Thanks Zsofi.x
