“Photographing at the Hôtel du Cap-Eden-Roc was truly magical,” said Avedon of the shoot. “Our beautiful women upon the rocks were based on the particular Sirens in Homer’s “The Odyssey,”—dangerously beautiful women who possessed the power to lure nearby sailors to their deaths with their enchanting music and bewitching auras.” Photography by Michael Avedon with fashion direction by Michaela Dosamantes for CR Fashion Book.
The boots I am dreaming of for this fall comes from Louis Vuitton AW14. What’s not to like about Nicholas Ghesquère’s first collection for Louis Vuitton? I have a weak spot for the girly side in the collection along with the funky vibe all over the collection. Even though ready-to-wear pieces are just too cool (turtlenecks, flappy big collars on short jackets, a-line form skirts and dresses… the list goes on), I have set my mind into the accessories – or to be more specific, the shoes. They are absolute perfection in my eyes; timeless, funky and yet so very chic. A thicker heel and round shape front makes these ankle boots wearable in so many ways. More or less, the ultimate ankle boots.
The Row pre-fall 2014 featuring brilliant beauty entrepreneur Linda Rodin in front of the lens. Not only do they capture the essence of luxury, they have truly made timeless and elegant pieces. Favorites? The knee-long leather skirt with wrap at front, along with the beautiful outerwear in terms of blazers, trenches and coats.
That cape-sweater poncho is simply incredible. Amanda Murphy pulls it off wearing satin trousers and Stan Smiths in their Spring and Summer 2014 issue. Editorial my Alasdair McLellan for 032c Magazine.
Couldn’t, and wouldn’t (!) resist any of these bags from the Céline Pre-Fall 2014 collections. So obvious and such a easy target to go for, I know, but however Phoebe Philo knows how to create perfection – and how to get my cravings going. I would be surprised whenever I get sick and tired of her design…. I am actually wondering when I am about to stop nagging about Céline. But for now, I settle with the most fabulous bags ever. Top of my wish list? Even if it wasn’t a bag from Céline? It’s a python or crocodile luggage. I want embossed leather, preferable slight patent. Dream bag? An Hermès Birkin of course…. Black alligator leather with golden details.
I really want this knitted cardigan with pearl embellishments from Maison Martin Margiela. Is on top (!) of my wish list for the moment. Big plus for it’s deep navy color and beautiful details. You’ll find it here.
I have got some specific items on top of my wish list for the moment. It’s a never ending story right? Having things you want and crave all the time? Well, I hope it never will end either. It’s nice to have certain things to ‘dream’ about or long for. Even though is just stuff. So much better with a vacation to long for though (!). But, there are a couple of things that I want, which I of course would like to share with you.
Eytys white canvas sneakers: these I have been waiting for a while! Hopefully I’ll get my hands on them next time I am in Stockholm. Céline hobo bag and python wedges: needs no explanation. I just need them. Badly. Acne Studios linen blazer and red mini skirt: the blazer is the perfect piece for me when to use as a jacket when it gets warmer. I have been eyeing the Célinen linen blazer, but hey, 2500 dollars for a blazer is waaay too much. So this is a really nice alternative. And the red skirt, feels very Vaccarello. Super cool and super chic. The Row ribbed sweater: the perfect rib and the perfect color. Dior pearl earrings: I just love these and the fact that they have pearls on each sides. Givenchy silk pleated trousers: silk satin oversized trousers would be a perfect investment this season for my ‘going out’ wardrobe. Repossi gold chain necklace: subtle and simple, the perfect everyday necklace. Chanel credit card holder: I need a new one. My wallet is too big and my current card holder is just, well boring, so I can’t get it out of my head that I want a new one. This one from Chanel is probably one I’d never get sick and tired of.
