I have been thinking of Birkenstock sandals for weeks! I can’t stop thinking about them, but everytime I have walked in to a store, I have just been hesitating. I mean, they are so ugly they are cool, and sure, ever since Céline showed their pieces they have been hot stuff. When I walked home a week ago in East Village I spotted a girl wearing the in white and they were so cool. So I might go with a white pair, especially since I have a pair of Marni sandals that are almost the same in black… The one above, that Kate are wearing are the classics, but I might go with the ones underneath – I like the cross-over and they don’t have as much ‘hospital’ vibe as the other ones…
Yet again, Céline delivers an extra-ordinary ad campaign featuring beautiful Daria Werbovy for Fall and Winter 2013. I want to do a manicure and get red nails, as well as red lips when I see these pictures! Power full and chic, at the sam time. Love it.
Yesterday Balmain launched their first hair products. According to the brand itself, the Balmain girl’s signature hair look is natural and shine with health. In this brand new line you can find everything from a misting spray called ‘Silk Perfume’ to ‘Session Spray’ – a spray that will (according to them) in an instant create those mussed locks and curls as the models on the brand’s runway has. Well, super exciting! I am not a big fan of hair products, but if I do use them they has to be natural (organic) and create that effortless look. You can find the products here.
The Chanel Haute Couture Fall and Winter 2014 collection just showed, and there was one piece, or I should say pieces of accessories, that got to me – the diamond stack rings. I love the fact that you can wear them on top of you nails (!), and stack them like crazy.
There were two looks which were smashing in the Balmain Resort 2014 collection, and that was the denim looks – especially the one above – denim paired with denim. The harnesses are just super cool, as well as the genius idea to style it with an over-sized crisp white shirt (so simple) – as well as all the gold accessories (what is a Balmain collection without its’s gold?). I am definitely going to do a copy cat on the look above, maybe in a more subtle way though.
I have got blue denim jeans on my mind. The bad weather has striked NY and it is more or less possible to wear jeans now. Anyway, I have got these perfect medium washed pair from J.Brand, but I am constantly looking for another pair and here above are some favorites for the moment. From the left: Étoile Isabel Marant blue denim jeans Pre-Fall 2013, A.P.C ‘Étroit Cropped’ jeans, and a pair of classics, ‘Pop Betty Cropped’ jeans from Acne Studios. You can find all of them right here.
As you may know, I kind of never write about menswear fashion. But, since the menswear collections are showing Spring 2014 at Paris Fashion Week for the moment, I couldn’t resist scrolling them through. One collection I just fell head over heel for is the Hermès SS14. I just love the way Véronique Nichanian worked with effortless cool styles and pieces – like boatneck t-shirts, scarfs and sandals. And, all the leather and suede! How beautiful isn’t the suede navy trench coat paired with dotted gabardine pants and loafers?
Self Service Magazine’s ‘Daily Obsessions’ are on my mind for the moment. Shoes, bags and accessories – a perfect mixture of the things that give you cravings. From the top: sandals by Valentino, white clutch from Alexandre Vauthier and bangles from Hermès. The snapshots are taken by Columbine Goldsmith and Nickolas Lorieux.
