Say hello to our new blog – we’ve relaunched the ‘The Oasis Fashion Journal’ and it’s bigger and better than ever!
To celebrate the new design, we collaborated with founder and editor of ‘La Petite Anglaise’, Ella Catliff to talk all about her favourite trends for AW13.

Make sure you subscribe to our videos over on YOUTUBE as we’ll have some very exciting content coming up in the next few weeks!

But in the meantime, read on as we catch-up with Ella to talk style tips, must-wear trends and all things autumnal…

MY FAVOURITE THING ABOUT AUTUMN IS…

ELLA: I love everything about autumn! The novelty of changing seasons still hasn’t worn off after 22 years living in England. What I love most is strolling through the fallen leaves in Holland Park with a Venti Starbucks Latte wearing knee high socks, a cashmere jumper and some sort of ridiculous wooly bobble hat.  Actually, I’d probably say accessories are what I love most about autumn, scenery will always come in second to a good hat.

Ella Wears: Salt and Pepper Coat, Marley Check Mini Skirt, Top (coming soon), Flower Necklace and Quilted Boots.

THIS SEASON I’LL MOSTLY BE WEARING…

ELLA: Leather, leather and more leather! Preferably in colours other than black. I’ve been basically stockpiling pencil skirts, pleated minis and biker jackets since July.

MY STYLE IN THREE WORDS…

ELLA: Bright, preppy, feminine.

Ella Wears: Stripe Coat, Stripe Dress, Black Suede Boots and Leopard Clutch Bag.

MY GO-TO PARTY PIECE HAS TO BE…

ELLA: On the odd occasion I go out in trousers it always feels fantastic but you just can’t beat a great cocktail dress. Temperley and Nanette Lepore and are my go-to designers.

Ella Wears: Jacquard Dress (coming soon), Clutch Bag (coming soon) and Black Wedge Shoes.

MY CURRENT STYLE CRUSH IS…

ELLA: Caroline Issa. Partially because she is flawlessly chic and rocks a trouser suit like no other but Caroline’s intelligence, drive and kindness are what make a true style icon.

I LOVE BLOGGING BECAUSE…

ELLA: It’s a great opportunity to meet designers and industry figures who’s careers I admire, wear beautiful clothes and attend incredible events and fashion shows. It’s an enormous privilege and one that I hope I never start taking for granted. It’s hard work but it’s more than enough fun to make up for a few evenings spent at my laptop instead of at the pub.

AW13’s MUST-WEAR TREND IS…

ELLA: I think that there’s no one ‘must-wear’ trend because, thankfully, we all have different styles. So while fashion’s current obsession with pink may make my heart sing with joy, others might go weak at the knees for minimalism and oversized outerwear.

THE BEST STYLE ADVICE I HAVE EVER BEEN GIVEN IS…

ELLA: Wear what you want to wear. Obvious and incredibly clichéd, but true nonetheless.
