A muted colour palette of slouchy and textural fashion against an organic and natural landscape encapsulates what we love for AW15. We are inspired by the androgynous aesthetics offset with bohemian touches in this editorial shot by Christopher Ferguson for C Magazine.

EXPLORE | Lilya Guide to Bali

LILYA designer Lisa Chedanne, takes a couple of trips a year to source fabrications, research and product design in Bali. Although she is busy overseeing the new LILYA collections, she still has a little time for some fun and play. Here are her insights on what to do around Seminyak….

EAT:  My personal faves are Mamasan, Cafe Bali, Potato Head, Sarong, Sardine,  Betelnut,  Crate Cafe in Canggu and the Cornerhouse. My new favourite is Hank’s Pizza and Liqueur for catching up with friends. I also love Nasi Campur at local Warungs.

COCKTAILS: The W hotel has some great cocktails, but I do prefer the more low-key vibe at Potato Head. I love enjoying a cocktail at beach bars at Sunset!

Marine Vacth is as quintessentially French as they come. The 23 year old Parisian has not only fronted campaigns for the likes of Yves Saint Laurent and Chloé, but is also fast gaining recognition as an up and coming actress. Her nonchalant style and classic beauty is uncomplicated, being both fresh and natural. Marine exudes a carefree spirit and understated glamour, making her one to watch on our radar….
