The following editorial ‘Line Crossed’ is featured in the latest issue of the swedish BON Magazine. It’s a magical editorial photographed by Matteo Montanari and modelling by Madison Headrick. The styling is perfection! Beautiful coats are styled with simple or printed shirts and turtle-necks – a classic yet modern look worth applying this fall.
So how many times haven’t you looked for a perfect basic tee? Or a tank that goes with just everything? I myself feels that I am constantly looking for those perfect basic – but never find them. Trust me, I’ve tried so many different brands but never found one to stick with. For an example, T by Alexander Wang – love the fit but lousy quality. Étoile Isabel Marant – great staples in linen jersey, but – bad quality there as well. Anyway, I saw these pieces from the L.A-based brand Kain and I really fell for the fit. Maybe I should ‘try’ some pieces from Kain – it could be the basics I am looking for. You can find Kain here!
Wow! Love this editorial in the latest issue of ELLE France Ocotber 2012. Julia Stegner looking smashing in Paul & Joe fur styled with Viktor & Rolf dress as well as the boot-cut printed trousers from American Retro, or why not the laidback look with creepers and boy-friend jeans from A.P.C? Great styling – chic and effortless – by Hortense Manga and photgraphed by Philip Gay.
A hat always is always a great accessory when it gets colder. Style it with a boho-chic look and it’s a winner. I find the Maison Michel hats and the ones from Borsalino simply classics, but one brand that has made great hats for this fall is Emilio Pucci. This one in burgundy is in wool-felt fedora and gives you that perfect ‘slouchy’ look. If you usually don’t wear hats, go for a classic and quite neutral colour like black, navy or burgundy. If you dare – go for a super cool hat in pink shade, like the one underneath, with an olive green ribbon, also from Emilio Pucci.
I can’t say that I am head over heels blown away by the Stella McCartney spring 2013 collection, but I really do like the highlights in the collection. She makes these beautiful suitjackets in black or white with matching pants or skirts and they are perfection. I do find one more look somehow very cool – a military green oversized shirt paired with a slim, quite elegant, skirt with see-through mesh – and the oversized black suit-jacket matched with a low-waisted skirt and belt takes the laidback masculine, yet ‘powe-woman’ look to another level.
Cara Delevigne is on the cover of Style.com Print S/S 2013 photgraphed by Matt Irwin. The magazine features big stars such as Marc Jacobs with stylist Katie Grand, the 15th anniversary of Nicolas Ghesquiere as a creative director at Balenciaga and Cara Delevigne as the ‘new Kate Moss’ (expressed by Mario Testino). The issue is not released yet but you can get your advance copy right here!
Quite hooked on silver metallic for the moment and since I saw this cover of the coffe-table book ‘Louis Vuitton Icons’ by Stéphane Gerschel I totally recalled my bag-crush with that silver-metallic ‘Miroir Speedy’-bag from Louis Vuitton years back. But hey, isn’t it cool? The greatest thing of all is that I totally fell for it then and I still am. It was such a ‘trend’ bag then and that kind of a bag “that would only last for one season” – but I was so wrong! It’s still super cool and if I find one I am totally going to get my hands on it. Underneath you see the latest pair of Tod’s silver metallic boxcalf loafers with tassels, now available on My Theresa.com.
I spotted the CR Fashion Book issue #1 in stores the other day and it really caught my eye. So I really wanted to share the beautiful cover, and some great photos from that issue. The book feature Kate Upton on the cover with the name ‘Rebirth’. Her daughter, Julia Restoin-Roitfeld is also featured in the book from the time she was pregnant. The issue is full of images and ideas of birth, pregnancy and family. The ‘Lullaby’ editorial features the beautiful Marie Piovesan photographed by Jean-Baptiste Mondino.
Isabel Marant opened a brand new boutique in Paris a couple of days ago, on Avenue Victor Hugo. You will not only find the brand’s Ready to Wear collection in the store but also her accessory line with shoes and bags. The boutique is over 2,000 square feet in the heart of a Parisian three story mansion. Of course there were a lot of chic people mingling in the evening the doors to the boutique opened. Among others Doria Tillier (looking great in a star printed shirt), Marie-Ange Casta (second pic) and Jeanne Damas (looking chic in a Isabel Marant top and jacket.
I really want, and need, a more dressed-up coat for fall (and soon to be winter). I am looking for a classic model with a deep front and with double-breasted buttons. These three above are coats that I would consider, great pieces! To the left: A.L.C ‘Savannah’ and shearling wool-blend coat, in the middle: Paul and Joe Sister ‘Clarence’ coat in wool and to the right: a great piece from Chalayan.
