Anja Rubik sitting in a sheer tank top and underwear smoking a cigarette in issue 38 of Self Service Magazine. Classic right? I got inspired by her boyish look and put together some t-shirt that are available online and in store for the moment. From the left: white short knitted muscle tee from T by Alexander Wang, tank top in nude with ‘Music’ print from Acne S/S13, black v-neck from Acne (love this model), sheer tank from Acne, satin bralette and black leather bra from T by Alexander Wang and black mesh underwear from Weekday. The creme white satin bralette is just gorgeous and would look great to style with a white power suit.
The luxurious crocodile shirt is a piece in the Hermès Spring 2013 collection and a part of the label’s chiffon crocodile shirt line. All of the tops from the menswear collection cost approximately between $60,000 and $100,000. The ancient fashion house has not only made fashionistas around the world raising there eye-brows. Peta says: “The highest price for this rather cheap-looking and ludicrous Hermès T-shirt is paid by the crocodiles who were bludgeoned to death or even skinned alive to make it,” Peta spokesperson Colleen O’Brien. “Peta suggests showing creativity, not cruelty to animals, and offering killer looks that no one had to be killed for to create.”
For the moment I have got black on my mind and I wouldn’t mind these cool pieces in my wardrobe. From the top left: black leather loafers from Hermès, leather bomber jacket from Filippa K S/S13 as well as leather skirt from Filippa K S/S13, beautiful satin top from Lanvin, embellished boots from the Saint Laurent Fall and Winter 2013 collection, stiletto sandal in snake from Jimmy Choo (I love these!), slip-in sandals in black leather with gold details from Ancient Greek Sandals, canvas and leather bag model ‘1968’ from Balenciaga and a pair of aviators ‘Luxe Mirrored Sunglasses’ from Linda Farrow.
I love the idea of Hermès being such a fun and quirky brand online. If you visit their website you pretty much get a round of applause for just entering it. Anyway, this is no news (I think it have been running for a while) but I just discovered Hermès Tumblr. Go and visit it yourself right here. The pictures of the several satin scarfs called ‘What Knot?’ looks so effortless cool and here you can see two of my favorite photographs by Nathaniel Goldberg.
Just spotted this editorial in Numéro Tokyo April 2013 issue. I am having a soft spot when it comes to denim editorials, I just love it. Simple, cool, classic, and most important of all – so inspiring. Carolyn Murphy is styled in denim on denim paired with cool statement accessories, like the Saint Laurent S/S13 felt hat and leather harnesses. The editorial is photographed by Nino Munoz.
I have mentioned Monica Sordo’s jewelry before, but I just find these pieces stunning. The ‘Medusa’ collection is fabulous, such a luxurious bohemian collection with a lot of statement pieces. The earrings with gold fringes as well as the bracelets and cuff are my absolute favorites. You can find Monica’s pieces at Fivestory in N.Y. and here.
The new issue of Numéro Magazine hits the stands this week and the cover features Aymeline Valade by Richard Bush. I find it so beautiful. Numéro always transmit a certain feeling that I can’t put my finger on. A good feeling of course, since it makes me want to run down to the store and get the magazine. I couldn’t find any editorial pictures from it yet, so I have gathered some favorites from recent editorials underneath. First out: Wild by Gregory Harris starring Missy Ryder, Wide Angle by Anthony Maule starring Janice Alida (I love that Miu Miu coat from the S/S13 collection…) and Céleste Ulysse Fréchelin.
Here are some stuff on my mind that also qualifies on my wish list for the moment. I am all about tank tops right now, even if it’s a bit too chilly for it. But I stack it underneath my cashmere knits and hope that I can start showing them off soon. These two comes from T by Alexander wang, beauties. When the spring starts to come I want to change my knitted scarf to a thinner one, and I wouldn’t mind this leopard silk scarf from Saint Laurent Paris (just in at My Theresa). Shoes that I want; suede sandals in navy from Gianvito Rossi (love these) and the embellished fur slippers from Céline… Accessories; sunglasses from Prada and stack rings from Dries Van Noten (love the silver/gold combo). And I need to update my perfume collection (as well as my make-up) and wouldn’t mind trying the Dries Van Noten for Frederic Malle perfume and getting myself some Chanel make.
