Trend Alert – Zip It!

Manoukian zip ruffle coat €178 croppedThe peeps at French fashion label, Manoukian are raving about their new collection and rightly so. In particular, this super-feminine yet edgy and versatile coat. It has an awesome frilled-collar and lapels, with zip detail edging. It’s on-trend and I love the way they’ve styled it with the black top underneath to ensure an edgy feel to the look. It is €173 which is a reasonable price for a trans-season coat that is this versatile. With the rock-chic look still going strong and with the fabric being oh-so Coco, (that’s Chanel, as if needed to say so), I would team it with some heavy eye make-up, black distressed jeans, maybe even some leather trousers or a skirt and keep the look really hard-edged.

Premium Zip-Ruffle neck Cream top £35 Topshop

On the other hand if you’re unsure whether frills are your thing, try this top from Topshop. It has a similar collar, though no lapels and is priced at £35 (read €55) and is crying out to be styled up with a structured leather jacket and some studded jeans. The zip-edged frill has been bubbling away quietly for a season or two but AW09 on the High Street, will see the trend explode! It’s on everything from hair accessories to shoes, so you can literally wear it top to toe. Probably best to keep it to one or the other though if I were you!

Manoukian is available in two boutiques in Dublin, Coco C in Skerries and Liuzzi in Dun Laoghaire.
