Luxe look: 4 high fashion looks with a rebel edge



“I may be a rebel but I’m not an outsider”

Amen to that, Vivienne Westwood.

With the same irreverent attitude to tradition, the Rebel collection is an unexpected departure for Waterford.

Created by leading British designer Jo Sampson, the collection encompasses everything from drinkware to jewellery, all inspired by the iconic punk stud. The rebellious spirit runs through it and the idea is that you mix and match as you please.

In the same vein, we’ve rounded up some uniquely desirable looks, with Sampson’s rebellious creations at the heart of the outfit.

With gold, the smallest details can have a serious impact. The spiky Rebel Ella B cuff (£82.50, Waterford) is all the wrist action you need to inject a tough golden edge to any look. Team it with a classic black dress: we love the feminine shirting of this Cannan dress from All Saints (£148), especially with tough ankle boots.

The SS16 catwalks were flowing with ruffles, frills and all things flouncy. Chloé’s offerings were no different. This oversized crepe shirt by Chloé (£740, Net-A-Porter) is billowing romance at its finest. Add a Rebel Lulu jewel necklace (£41.25, Waterford) and a red lip to give the look a more rock chick edge.

Print is having a moment, with ‘more is more’ mash ups of print, colour and texture spotted all over the fashion weeks. Amp up your power dressing by pairing this Emberley embellished strapless jumpsuit by Alice + Olivia (£660, Harvey Nichols) with the fine-bohemian Rebel Coco gold bangle (£41.25, Waterford).


Off-duty rock

With Axl Rose and Slash really really really getting back together for the first time since 1993 to headline Coachella this year, 2016 is a big one for rock ‘n’ roll. No festival wardrobe is complete without skinny leather leggings (Joseph at Selfridges, £725). Layer up with a loose-fitting vintage band tee and accessories galore – this Rebel Ella B ring in gunmetal (£30, Waterford) is tough-luxe gold.
