The it-shoe

Salvatore Ferragamo laced up pink leather sandals Spring 2013This spring is all about the high heeled knee-high gladiator sandal. Altuzurra showed some amazing ones, as well as Salvatore Ferragamo, Alexander Wang and Jimmy Choo. In the latest issue of Vogue Paris Natasha Poly is styled by Géraldine Saglio in thigh high boots for their ‘I love New York’ editorial. Very bohemian and goregous 70s looks where we can spot the stunning Ferragemo boots and the S/S13 Altuzurra ones. Above you’ll see the Salvatore Ferragamo laced-up boots that is also featured in the editorial underneath.

The perfect pair

Saint Laurent black suede Paris P 80 slouch boots-1Okey, so I have found the most perfect pair of ankle boots and you’ll find them in Hedi Slimanes first shoe collection for Saint Laurent Spring 2013. They comes in black suede with a 90 mm heel and you’ll find them here. Classic but laidback cool for an everyday look. Simply the perfect combination.

Valentino crush

Valentino ad campaign spring 2012 trenchcoatI have the biggest crush ever on Valentino for the moment. There are som many great pieces in the Spring 2013 collection, I don’t even know where to begin! But my biggest fashion crush is the one I have on their leather goods collection as well as the shoe collection for this spring. I know that the studded collection isn’t new at all but there is something remarkable cool about this collection. Like the plastic see-through shoulder bag with beige details for an example, or the classic medium studded clutch in different kinds of colours and leather… When it comes to the clothing in this collection I can get enough of the girly yet very classy pieces, the lace and the mesh nor the snake print effects in everything from dresses to handbags. But the most amazing piece of all is the studded pvc trench coat (on the picture above). Well, it’s a great collection and hopefully we will see it in many stylish editorials and features this spring.

Etno vibes

1970s comic book icon Corto Maltese is the inspiration behind Joseph Altuzarra’s fall 2012 collection. That is why the collection is full of classic maritime looks with shearlings and mixed up with patchworks, prints and etno-chic vibes. I am having this crush on this kind of style for the moment, will probably last in a micro-second, but I very much dig the sweater above. Beautiful embellishments in gold and stunning print.

Perfection

Perfection kind of sum up these laced-up sude boots from Jimmy Choo. And I kind of want them… They are the typical Emmanuelle Alt/Geraldine Saglio type of shoe. Wouldn’t you say? Anyway, I use to think that if you have a really nice pair of shoes and a super classy and cool bag that you like, you can get away with almost wearing anything. Those two pieces are essentials in a great everyday look. I would add, the ‘perfect’ jacket though. It could be anything – a cool leather, an olive green army jacket, a fuzzy oversized coat or a perfect peacock jacket. I would definitely say that one of the top ten bags ever made is this one underneath, from Louis Vuitton and designed by Sofia Coppola. So if I must, hehe, choose one I would definitely go for this one.
