I guess there really is quite something very exciting with designer collaborations, the coming together of big Fashion Houses or in this case, the fashion label whose name was launched when the Duchess of Cambridge donned the now world famous satin blue engagement dress in November 2010. Fast forward to the present, August 2013 marks the very first time ISSA LONDON collaborates with a global retailer – BANANA REPUBLIC – to produce a 40-item capsule collection of chic yet effortless pieces.

As for the Blue on Blue combo:

“The TACORI earrings give more luxury taste… while the statement necklace complements the outfit and underline the colour of dress and your type of beauty. It creates the frame of elegance!”

Inspired by Banana Republic’s heritage of exotic safari adventures, each of item of the Banana Republic – ISSA Capsule Collection evokes femininity, sexy yet comfortable silhouettes, which can easily transition from day to night.

Though I was quite surprised with the actual colour of this royal blue faux-wrap dress (perhaps it’s both a blessing and a curse that it is not a real wrap dress, thoughts anyone?), the fit is quite impressive except for the extra caution one must take when trying the straps to avoid the gathering of extra fabric under the bust line. Overall, the cleavage is not too deep, the straps are long enough that you can do a single or double cross and the fabric itself is very soft and oh so comfortable!

TWENTY YORK STREET REVIEWS

I originally had my hear set on the Issa Collection Red Ceramic Printed Three-Quarter Sleeve Dress (this SOLD OUT within minutes – both in stores and online!), this royal blue dress is quite a statement piece as well! It doesn’t mean I won’t be keeping an eye when it goes back on sale online! There’s definitely a few other pieces worth ordering.

On another note, though this is set to happen next week, I have to say I’m absolutely excited about the 2014 Ford Fiesta Drive Program! I don’t suppose I can reveal much more than that at this time but surely, you know if this is one epic event, @20YS will be tweeting, posting and instagramming the hell out of it! I’m sure I flooded everyone’s timeline with insta pics of our summer road trip with the FORD FUSION! Well, I can’t promise I won’t do the same. All I can promise is that this is going to be one  very exciting FIESTA!
