I just found some super nice budget rings from Zara. When it comes to rings I actually have a hard time to buy costume jewelry just because they loose their glance after a while. So the pieces I know are classic and timeless, I try to buy in either gold or sterling silver. Then you don’t have to worry about them getting drab. But when it comes to trend-pieces, that I am not sure of if I will end up using or not, I totally go for the budget ones. Especially like the Céline-ish inspired rings above from Zara. Underneath, inspiration and rings from Chloé Fall 2013.
I am in love with Eddie Borgo for the moment. There are some amazing pieces in his previous collection, and up-coming for that matter as well. I would love a golden necklace in gold for this summer, styling it both for everyday and for a night look. Love the way Elizabeth and James showing their golden necklace in their resort 2014 collection (see previous post), pairing it with denim. Such a beautiful combination.
It 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.
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.
Love 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.
On my wish list for the moment: A micro-fringed chain skinny leather belt from Versace. How cool? You can find it here.
These 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. The editorial is from the S Moda Magazine, Anja Rubik is photographed by Eric Guilleman for their April issue.
Speaking of scarfs, I remember that Acne Studios showed a cool styling of the silk scarf in their Fall and Winter 2013 collection. The models were wearing satin and silk scarfs – like a bandana – underneath a hat. Such a simple way of styling yourself and apply in your wardrobe. By the way, I love the colors of the hats! Blushed pink, black and navy blue – beautiful colors, especially the pink hue in the Fall (style it with burgundy…love that combination). Anyway, this styling something I definitely going to copy paste for next season!
The 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.
