‘Not So Neutral…’

It’s not just the many shades of beige that caught my eye—the lacing, pleating, ribbing, edging, etc.—all details that elevate an item’s appeal.

  • Have just got back from London and found the endless sea of neutral colours quite uninspiring!!

  • So beautiful – never get tired of neutrals – it what I “always grab” to quote you! So easy.

  • Neutral with a twist! I love it.

  • Like Kathy said, I’ll never tire of neutrals either. They look especially interesting this season with all the added details, like you mention. It’s probably the one color I’m buying heavily into this season with so many great options available.

  • I have my eye on those booties!

  • Speaking about mastering neutrals – I have clicked my way through Bottega Veneta’s SS17 collection 3 times now, and I literally get short of breath every time. I am a fall person by far but this makes me want to live on bread and water til then to be able to buy just one timeless piece.

  • Just purchased beige suede flats with a tiny hint of gold metal around the heel. Perfect for autumn. Correct Preston, details up the chic quotient. Please, no comments about how I will keep them clean walking around the city!
