Speaking of turquoise... (who's speaking of turquoise? I was, the other day, and questioning its compatibility with grey). I much prefer it with black, (or brown), and especially, in such a bold fashion, as shown here on Lisa, in Manish Arora. I love this coat, love how she's accessorised it so simply, with bare legs - her colouring is perfect with this, but it would look great on any colouring, especially pale skin and black or even platinum hair. It just shines like a jewel amongst all the sea of black, and her black booties are, in my mind, perfect with it. What do you think? How would you wear this coat?

Lisa works for Blow, one of the coolest fashion agencies in London. And they represent Manish Arora, a wild & wacky, very talented designer (his own website is here).



I found this later shot of her in The Coat, manning the guest list for the Basso and Brooke show, as they're also represented by Blow. What a dream job!

oh, that coat!!! it's wonderful!! i'd wear it with skinny black pants and ankle boots- something simple so as not to compete with that amazing print.

This woman is FIERCE! I love that she uses one statement piece and lets that do the fashion talking- keeps the rest of her ensemble simple.
