Since I’ve just recently moved into a new space I have got interior on my mind, and of course I have been browsing through 1st Dibs like a crazy person. I might not be able to purchase so much as one thing (the prices are maniac), but at least I can day dream a bit. Pieces from; Ib Geertsen Composition 1951 oil painting, Julie Schenkenberg Shroud Four painting, Hans J Wegner wooden arm chair, marble table from Pierre Cardin (a table I used for a Sunday Treat on The Wall a while ago).
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…
Hooked on tumblr pages for the moment, and I know I recommended CR Fashion Book’s tumblr just a few days ago… But you shouldn’t miss out this one, the Altuzarra tumblr. Pictures and snapshots from the archive (like the pic above from their Resort 2012 collection) and daily news about the Atluzarra brand. By the way, how nice isn’t with classic Stan Smith’s? Not really the exact model in the picture, but similar…. Should really dig up mines, they are so cool. Hedi Slimane has done his interpretation on them as well, for Saint Laurent and you can find the white ones right here.
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.
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.
