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’.

On my mind

Parker silk jumposuitI 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.

Girl crush

Gaia RepossiOkey, 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.

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.

Sunnies

Céline sunglasses ad campaignEvery time on this specific period of the year I start to crave sunglasses. Along comes the problem of which ones to get (huge problem right…). Even though I think I have every shape – wayfarer, aviators, cat-eye, squared…and so on, I always want one more pair. For this season I have no idea of what I am looking for. I have been eyeing a pair from Céline but I haven’t found the right model. Underneath I have gathered some cool ones.
