RB FAVE - CHRISTINE CENTENERA

Vogue Australia's Fashion Director, Christine Centenera, can do no wrong. She breaks a TON of "fashion" rules and isn't afraid of trying anything. Her fearless, more is more approach to style is a constant source of inspiration. We love how she always rocks those killer shades, layers like nobody's business and her shoe collection is TO DIE FOR. #RBFave

ASK A STYLIST - HOW TO WEAR A GRAPHIC TEE

Q: The graphic t-shirt trend is so fun! But I'm worried I can't pull them off. How do I wear a graphic tee while still looking chic and sophisticated?
A: Slogan tees and graphic t-shirts are our go-to for playful weekend wear, cheeky nights out and even dressing down an evening look. We're not alone in our love affair. From the runway to the street to some genius collaborations, one might call this the year of the graphic tee. And Être Cécile is winning it hands down. (We can't wait for their collaboration with Man Repeller!)
They can be intimidating to try at first or seem a little too playful for every occasion, but trust us anyone can wear the trend! Pairing the right tee with the right things is the trick to looking chic in a graphic or slogan t-shirt. Here are our four favourite ways to wear it.
1. Weekend Errands (above)
This is a great easy and casual look for running around town but still looking fabulous. We love the Être Cécile French Fury Tee paired with this amazing 10 Crosby bouclé jacket that can add cool sophistication to any off-duty look.
 

 

2. Dinner with the Girls
Play up a feminine feel with pastel colours and clean lines for a night out. The Chevron Colour Block Tee is a soft take on a graphic look. Top with a soft grey coat and pair with skinny jeans cropped at the ankle and a killer heel. Grab the rose gold Marie Turnor clutch and you're good to go.

 
3. Date Night
What better time to be La Bombe? To make the graphic tee standout, keep your outfit monochromatic in black and white. We love this bold statement t-shirt with a leather motorcycle jacket and the Joseph lace pencil skirt (for that sexy/soft feel). Lace and leather together is always a win in the RB world. Finish with strappy heels to keep the leg line long, lean and gorgeous.
 

4. Power Shopping
Take "Charge" with this Être Cécile t-shirt designed in collaboration with Harper's Bazaar Executive Editor Laura Brown. Keep things simple when you're on a mission. There's nothing better than throwing on a graphic tee with your favourite blue jeans and heels. Roll up the cuff to mirror the easy look of the t-shirt, and show off your shoes.

TREND REPORT - PLEATS


 

Pleats will always be a classic. They can be worn in so many ways, from the classic circle skirt to detail on a crisp button up or cashmere sweater. There's something for everyone. Tight knife pleats for a preppy look, a relaxed sun pleat for a boho feel, or the most feminine (and my absolute favourite right now) accordion pleat. I love mixing this girlie style with a leather jacket, a rocker tee and some slip on sneakers.


Clu is one brand that can totally reinvent the pleat and find the perfect balance of edge and femininity. I'm obsessed with their cashmere sweater dresses and cardigans right now. Shop Clu here.

Pleats have this romantic way of reminding me of the past, but lately they've never felt so fresh. They have a special place in my heart that way... and in my closet.

THE SLEEP SHIRT x REBECCA BREE

 

I am so excited to announce the launch of a very special collaboration! Introducing Bonne Nuit by The Sleep Shirt and Rebecca Bree!

My friendship with Alexandra Suhner Isenberg began over drinks at a Vancouver fashion party and we soon found ourselves enjoying spa days and fawning over each other's Hermès handbags. But it wasn’t until the launch of my boutique and Alexandra’s sleepwear line, The Sleep Shirt, that the relationship was cemented.

After several successful seasons of working together, we decided to join forces and create a special exclusive nightwear set. We started with The Sleep Shirt’s classic short nightshirt, then I chose, from a variety of pretty cottons, a blush pink polka dot fabric. It's so soft! Adding an eye mask and a gift box, we decided to call it “Bonne Nuit” because I love Paris and Alexandra is half French.

The set is priced at $225 and features the Short Sleep Shirt, a classic nightshirt with a roomy cut, a dropped shoulder, and a placket that ends halfway down the chest. The eyemask is filled with 100% cotton batting and the set comes in a kraft paper gift box – the perfect gift for family, friends, or yourself! You’ll find Alexandra wearing her set over long breakfasts in her husband’s country house in the Swedish forest, while I will be dressed in the nightshirt while devouring Harpers Bazaar and sipping champagne.

Alexandra and I are so thrilled to bring you Bonne Nuit and to help women sleep in style!!
