My current obsession is a pair of white pumps, especially know for the summer. I spotted super cool Carine Roitfeld in a pair during the fashion weeks, which she of course looked great in. Anyway I dig the way Natalia Vodianova is styled above, with a chunky knit and a silky negligé – and of course a pair of white pumps. Gorgeous Natalia is captured by Alasdair McLellan for WSJ Magazine June 2013. Underneath you can see two pair from the brand Gianvito Rossi, that has the most comfortable shoes! You can find them here and here.
On my mind for the moment: super stylish Marie-Amélie Sauvé who is former stylist for Balenciaga (worked close with Nicolas Ghesquière through his year at the house and was his longtime muse). Starting off her career at Vogue Paris as an intern in the eighties, Sauvé came back for a position at the magazine under the Carine Roitfeld-era, and continued on with American Vogue as member of team Anna Wintour. Her currently position is as W magazine’s senior fashion editor as well as freelance and always ends-up teaming with Ghesquière. Sauvé always look impeccable cool in in feminine, modern and trend-updated pieces mainly from Balenciaga and she has definitely a look to get inspired from. Below you can see some of her editorial work.
I want to update my closet for spring with white, gold and luxurious materials. The combination of suede, cashmere and silk are to-die-for, especially in light hues such as egg-shell white, light grey and beige. Above I have gathered some pieces that I wouldn’t mind moving into my closet immediately. From the top left: cashmere pullover from Jardin des Orangers, suede laced-up boots from Salvatore Ferragamo Fall 2013, 18 carat gold and diamond earrings from Sophie Bille Brahe, ‘Paris Eau de Perfum’ from Balenciaga, white perforated stretch skirt from Azzedine Alaïa, mirrored aviator sunglasses from Linda Farrow, beautiful eggshell white chiffon and silk dress from L’Wren Scott and egg-shell white clutch from Valentino.
On my wish list for the moment: A micro-fringed chain skinny leather belt from Versace. How cool? You can find it here.
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.
‘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’.
Above I have gathered some black pieces that can be your basic essentials in your spring closet. I love black and can’t get enough of it and find it so beautiful to wear not only in the fall and winter season but also when the summer is coming. From the top left: jersey dress from Rick Owens Lilies (here), sheer tank from Acne Studios, top from The Row with deep back, long sleeve washed out linen top from Étoile Isabel Marant, leather shorts from Isabel Marant, pleated skirt from The Row, satin belt from Lanvin from Net-a-Porter, leather sneakers from Nike (here), sunglasses from Ray Ban, black leather bucket bag from Balenciaga (love this one, you can find it here), black leather sandals from Marni at Farfetch.com and ‘Twin Mini Messenger’ shoulder bag from The Row that you can find here.
I have got jumpsuits on my mind for the moment! Such a beautiful piece to wear both during the day and for a cool and sophisticated evening look. I spotted these two black ones at Intermix, one of my favorite boutiques in N.Y. The one above comes from Parker. I love the fact that it is in silk as well as the spaghetti straps. Underneath you’ll find a one from Intermix as well, from ALC and is a crepe sleeveless model. You can find them both on Intermix online site, right here.
Okey, so I constantly have girl crushes, but there is one particular person I am kind of obsessing over for the moment and that is Gaia Repossi, daughter to Alberto Repossi – as in Repossi Joailliers Jewelry. Gaya who is the artistic director of the French Jewelry brand has this impeccable cool french style, always looking very au natural but with an edge. The accessories and jewelry Gaia creates and design for Repossi definitely take her stylish look to another level. Her earrings, rings and hair pieces are just amazing and I will definitely do an upcoming post about them.
