Talented stylist Marie Chaix has styled this power editorial, ‘Chic Athlétique’, for the June/July 2013 issue of Vogue Paris. Model Hilary Rhoda is photographed by Terry Richardson and looks smashing in Céline Pre-fall pieces (I am obsessed with that buckle belt…), as well as all of the boots (!). The Céline pair with gold front and laces are killers, but I am very fond of the ones with low heel from Reed Krakoff, the black pair above – they would look gorgeous to knee-lenght skirts for the Fall. Chaix has captured loads of trends for the Fall 2013 in this editorial. Waist belt, knee-long skirts and knee-high boots, gloves and white – all trends that we probably will see a lot more of.
For this upcoming Fall, black and white are an huge trend – in pattern as well as in looks. I just love a monochrome look, as you may have realized by now, and to follow up a monochrome look is gorgeous to do it with a pair of shoes in the same color. A white pair of shoes is quite hard to find, but for this Fall season there are going to be a lot of cool alternatives. Like the ankle boots above from Altuzarra with the silver buckle detail or the pumps from Gianvito Rossi. All shoes from Gianvito Rossi Fall and Winter 2013 except for the top ankle boots from Altuzarra Fall 2013.
Okey I know there is a lot of posts regarding sandals for the moment, but in my defense, sandals is one of key accessories/shoes for this season! And why not just love and embrace a trend that makes our feet very happy? As I have figured, there is this love/hate relationship to the Céline fur slippers this season – either you love them to death or find them the most ugliest shoe ever. If you dig them you should definitely check out this pair above from Chloé. Without fur, of course, but similar model and cool details. You can find them here.
These hoop earrings from the Balmain S/S13 collection have been seen in a lot of editorials lately and probably more to come. The hoop earring-trend is definitely one of the strongest this spring when it comes to accessories. And of course, Balmain has made the utterly coolest pair. Have you been looking for these popular earrings and haven’t found them? Well, now you can get them here.
For the moment it’s snowing outside. My mind is totally somewhere else, not even close at bringing back boots, furs and big jackets. This time last year it was actually pretty sweet outside. Thank god that I have plans coming up. Anyway, since I just want to think about spring I am thinking about the trends for this spring. As I mentioned before, there is a lot of python coming up. Proenza Schouler and Valentino showed a lot of leather goods as well as shoes on the runway in python leather and print. Above I just put together some cool stuff that are available in store, or pretty soon at least. Pink-orange hued python PS1 and clutch from Proenza Schouler (as well as the neutral bag underneath), t-shirt from Equipment (how cool), kitten heels and clutch from Valentino, blue iPad case from Dolce & Gabbana and super sweet sandals from All Tomorrow’s Parties – that you can find online right here.
For a super cool grunge look simply add this beauty to your wardrobe. I would style it pretty simple though, with a grey melange t-shirt and a pair of worn-out boots. If you like me, just find it awesome, you can find this printed silk skirt from 3.1 Phillip Lim right here.
There is a lot of checked prints and plaid on the runways for the moment. Plaid is super hot for the fall but a bit too warm for this season. Instead both Dries Van Noten and 3.1 Phillip Lim has done some great checked pieces like shirts, trousers and dresses in their Spring 2013 collections. This one above comes from 3.1 Phillip Lim and is a super cool piece for this season. You can find it at La Garconne (a favorite), right here.
The bomber jacket is hot this season! If you looking for something simple but yet different I would go for this cool piece above form Stella McCartney. You can find the Airtex-mesh bomber jacket at Net-à-Porter, here.
I think you all remembered this hyped collaboration from last year? The Vans x Kenzo fourth edition of the signature shoe was unveiled during Paris Fashion Week FW13 and this time the two brands has worked with leopard print. The Clouded Leopard capsule collection is created by design directors Humberto Leon and Carol Lim at Kenzo and the print was shaped during a trek in the Thai Jungle. The sneaker is available in ocher, orange, green, khaki and dark blue (and in the model Era) from March 15. A comfy and perfect everyday sneaker to lighten up your shoe wardrobe.
Python-print is very hot this season! Don’t know how to wear it? Start with baby steps, like implementing a t-shirt in your wardrobe. This one comes from Proenza Schouler, and you can find it in one of my favorite Soho boutiques, Kirna Zabete.
