Chic Athlétique

Vogue Paris June:July 2013 Hilary Rhoda by Terry Richardson-7Talented 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.

Black & White

Black and white shoes FW13 - Altuzarra, Gianvito RossoFor 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.

Chloé sandals

Chloe Karung Slip On Sandal in black 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 hereChloe Karung Slip On Sandals

The Hoop earrings

Balmain silver hollow hardware clip-on hoop earringsThese 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.

The Baguette

Fendi Baguette-Bead Embroidered Shoulder BagI have been seeing more and more of a certain bag lately, and that bag is the Fendi Baguette bag. If I remember it right, I think it was in the beginning of 2000 this bag was the it-bag among fashionistas. I was in 6th grade or something, but I remember seeing them in fashion mags along with the ‘J’Adore Dior’ t-shirt (pretty cool btw) and the matching sunglasses from the same brand with the blinged out flames at the frames. Anyway, the Baguette bag is actually an icon among bags, and since the trends are slighty heading more and more to the ‘Lady-Like’ look this one is a piece to count on. The bags underneath are the ones from the Fendi Spring 2013 collection.

Python

PS

One of the hottest trends for this spring is the pyhton print. You’ll spot in on everything from bags to printed t-shirts, dresses and shirts. Balenciaga and Proenza Schouler has made some amazing bags in eclectic colours using the python leather. Christian Louboutin show off some amazing heels in snake leather as well as Valentino. I like the python print a lot! A great substitute to all the leopard animal print that we have seen for a while now. Above you’ll find the classic ‘Papier Tote’ bag from Balenciaga in the latest python leather for the spring 2013 collection.

The Row Pre-Fall 2013

The Row Pre-Fall 2013 jacquardAs I’ve mentioned before, the American luxury brand The Row is my absolute favourite, in well, almost every category. The Olsen sisters has this amazing eye for fine materials, fantastic lines and wearable pieces. Don’t even get me started on the bags… Anyway, for this pre-fall collection they have worked with a classic palette of black, crisp cream, camel, brown and burgundy in materials such as satin, cashmere and wool. The mink fur is absolutely amazing as well as the camel coat paired with burgundy. There is also a touch of Asia, as we can see in the look with the white shirt, black trousers and the obi belt, as well in the jacquard woven look with embroidered flowers. The Row isn’t the first one flirting with the East. In the Balmain Pre-Fall 2013 collection there were a lot of Asian vibes and influences in both suit jackets and dresses. Something I hope we will see a lot more of in the main ready-to-wear collections for this fall.
