LONDON…Luella Bartley is a clear favorite among a certain London crowd of creative, fashionable young women, turning out quirky must-haves season after season. For F/W 09, Bartley turned to a reliable look which recalled school days with a twist. Slim, ruffled hem dresses with large gold zippers found their stride when styled with prim button downs, while menswear trousers featured paper bag waists and a cropped length. Bartley is a master of the mix, always pairing her pieces with unexpected accessories, such as shimmery metallic tights or  bright hair extensions. Don’t miss this girly and fresh designer for fall direction.
