I just love this time of year for fashion and accessories, winter exudes a sense of luxury and decadence in the lead up to Christmas

Sumputous wool, velvets and fur teamed with gold, and leather accessories create a glamorous chic look 

One of my favourite treats is to have a sneak peak at what some of the luxury brands have in store for us, and Louis Vuitton always deliver!

I recently viewed the AW 14/15 collection by Nicholas Ghesquiere, the new Creative Director of Louis Vuitton 

Here are some of my style picks, perfect additions to add a touch of luxe to an everyday or travel wardrobe



The Petite Malle bag has to be the 'it' piece of the current collection

Inspired by the iconic Louis Vuitton trunks created in the 1800s, it is printed with the 3 crosses signature of the photographer Albert Kahn

Available with a choice of leather finishes, from the Monogram, Damier to the Epi 

I would wear this cross body style, over a baggy cashmere sweater or blazer with leather leggings or skinny jeans for that chic Parisian look!



The ultimate day to night accessory, the richness of the python finish with the gold zip detail, adds an edgy luxe style

Team with a sweater for daytime, or wear on each arm with a simple black dress for evening



The Trivelling is the statement necklace, this gold piece with bands of calf leather exudes glamour

The detail and craftsmanship is shown in the Epi leather grained detail on the gold metal which is created using the guilloche technique

Keep it simple with a silk tank top for day or pair with a long evening dress, I would also style this necklace in summer with a full length kaftan for a luxe bohemian look



I love these, the retro shape with the red and gold finish gives a pop of colour in wintry days

Adding this simple touch to staple wardrobe pieces creates a luxe feel, and is a perfect travel accessory for winter getaways

I would wear these throughout winter to spring, where I would then team them with a simple shift dress for daytime glamour


All these accessories and the full AW14 collection by Nicholas Ghesquiere, are available now in all Louis Vuitton stores and for Irish clients they can be found at Louis Vuitton in Brown Thomas
