Michael Kors Spring 2012 sandal

So I was going through my archive of pictures, inspirational editorials, previous snapshots from last season’s runway etc., and I always end up with so much stuff on my mind. Like I spotted this snapshot above, from the Michael Kors SS12 collection, a simple leather sandals that is just super cool – a pair I wouldn’t mind at all get my hands on today. Unfortunately something that can be a bit tricky since it’s last year collection. But I did put together some nice styles that are available today from this season! From the top: Marni buckle strap leather sandal, Saint Laurent Paris ‘Woodstock’ flats sandal with golden details, Marni black leather sandal and ‘Alethea’ sandal from Greek Ancient Sandals.

The rings

Balenciaga Spring ringsThese golden rings from Nicolas Ghesquière for Balenciaga are haunting me….badly. I bet am not the only one dreaming of them. I have spotted them in several web shops but they intend to sell out, well, quite immediately. Damn it. Will probably always regret not getting them along with this thin necklace from the very same collection of his.

Playtime Hermès

Play with your Hermès scarf - Pointe Fluide PirateThe people at Hermès has done a quite cool guide for inspiration on how to knot and ‘play’ with your Hermès scarf. The traditional squared silk scarf can be tied in so many ways and can actually be a true closet saver not only for a bad hair day but also as a chic accessory at the beach, as a belt or why not a skirt? I picked out some of my favorites of ‘how to knot it’ in this post – I love the cool and bohemian vibe you get when knot it as the ‘Turban Croisé’ (above) or the ‘Bandeau Rétro’ (underneath). You can get the full guide right here. Play with your Hermès scarf - Carré Double Noeud

Swedish up and coming model Hedvig Palm will go far… New model crush going on. Here are some polaroids from her agency, one taken from SS12 season backstage at Tom Ford. One of her first jobs in 2011 was a catalogue job done for Prada (!) along with the Jil Sander, Alexander Wang and Céline show for the SS12 collections.

Vogue Paris May 2013 Andreea Dicaonu by David SimsToday the May issue of Vogue Paris hit the stands and I can’t wait to grab this issue – the editorials that I have seen looks amazing. In this issue focus lies on the Cannes Film Festival as well as Punk and the exhibition of ‘Punk: Chaos to Couture’. The exhibition that will open at the MET in N.Y this May was also the inspiration of the Style.com Print’s third issue, something I wrote about here. I am really curious about this expo especially since both Style.com/Print and Vogue Paris has taking it under their wings for their latest issues, and I would love to see it. Freja Beha Erichsen is featured on the cover in a punk chic look shot by the amazing duo Inez & Vinoodh. Anyway, I couldn’t help myself to post an editorial that I liked from this issue styled by Emmanuelle Alt from one of the location they been to, the Sahara desert. I love the sport influences and Andreea Diaconu looks amazing.

The Art of Mismatching

Carine Roitfeld‘It started out because I couldn’t find both of the earrings in a pair so I would just put different ones on, but now I do it all the time. It looks so cool, no?’ Carine Roitfeld says on her tumblr. Looks pretty cool to me, perhaps a new trend? Carine wears on the picture an earring from Dior, and in the other ear a delicate and more subtle earring from Chanel.  Have a look at some more of her editorial snapshots here. By the way, I read an interview with her and she seems to be such a fabulous woman. Carine mentioned that because of her age, her body has started to get weaker, and that is why she began to dance ballet. The former editor in chief takes ballet classes every morning and got so inspired by the art form that she dedicated a whole issue of her CR Fashion Book to dance, and her second issue is simply called ‘Dance’.

Black & White

Black and white shoes FW13 - Altuzarra, Gianvito RossoFor this upcoming Fall, black and white are an huge trend – in pattern as well as in looks. I just love a monochrome look, as you may have realized by now, and to follow up a monochrome look is gorgeous to do it with a pair of shoes in the same color. A white pair of shoes is quite hard to find, but for this Fall season there are going to be a lot of cool alternatives. Like the ankle boots above from Altuzarra with the silver buckle detail or the pumps from Gianvito Rossi. All shoes from Gianvito Rossi Fall and Winter 2013 except for the top ankle boots from Altuzarra Fall 2013.
