Blue shades

Blue shades - Prada aviators, Ray-Ban Pilot sunglasses and Thom Browne DitaIt is always chic with a pair of blue shades – especially to a crispy white shirt and a pair of perfect cutting blue denim jeans. Above I have gathered three favorites for this season. First, a pair of Prada aviators with gold frames. These ones are just perfect and the shape and utterly cool. Second, the blue lens with black frames comes from Thom Browne by Dita. This pair comes from their Fall 2013 collection which is a follow up from their previous collaboration between the New York based Thom Browne and the high-quality manufacturing company Dita. The glasses are handmade in Japan and even though they have them on Mr Porter I would definitely say they are unisex. And least, aviators from Ray-Ban – the most timeless and effortless cool shade ever.

Sophie Bille Brahe x Weekday Collection

Danish Sophie Bille Brahe’s Spring and Summer jewelry collection for Weekday is now out called ‘Ensemble’. This is her second collaboration with the Swedish jeans and retail store, following up the AW12 collection. All the pieces are made from sterling silver and there are some amazing rings as well as a super cool cuff that I would like to grab my hands on (not on the picture). The rings are amazing and you can combine them in several ways. I dig the fact that she has made the entire collection in thin sterling silver which will make the pieces long laster.

Sophie Bille Brahe gold jewelryLove these pieces from the talented Sophie Bille Brahe, everything from earrings to rings. She works with 18 carat gold and diamonds that makes all of the pieces just stunning and wearable for both everyday use. Above you see my absolute favorites from her ‘gold’-collection. You can find Sophie’s pieces here.

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

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’.

Repossi

Gaia Repossi Jewelry - rings, necklace, earringsAs I mentioned in the previous post, I just had to show you some of the amazing pieces from Gaia Repossi’s line. All of them are favorites, of course… But if I had to choose one particular pieces I must say I am in love with the ‘Berber’ earring – both in 18 karat rosé-gold and white gold (the pieces in with the four rings in the middle of the pic). You can find the jewelry at Net-à-Porter, Barneys and Montaigne Market.

The Twosome necklace

Efva Attling Twosome necklace silverThe ‘Twosome’ necklace from Swedish jewelry designer Efva Attling is currently on mind and I can’t let it go. It is such a beautiful necklace and I love the idea of the two rings linked together. One rounded ring, and one squared ring with the words ‘Amor Vincit Omnia’, Latin for ‘Love conquers all’. You can find the gold one here, and the silver one here. Efva who is currently living in New York, opened her first store in the states a while ago, matter in fact in fashionable Meatpacking in N.Y.
