If there is one Hotel in the world (!) that I wouldn’t mind literally living in for my entire life (hah!) it’s Hôtel Costes. Not only is the atmosphere, the rooms and the restaurant things which makes me want to come back to the French very mysterious hotel, it’s also their taste in music. Costes have a collection of albums with the music they’re playing at the hotel as well, which are available at Spotify. Collections which I have listened to for years. Anyway as the Costes enthusiast that I am, I got happily surprised when I spotted that Net-a-Porter has just recently got their beauty products. Soap, perfume, candles and more is available online now. You can find Costes’ beauty stuff here.
Twelve girls shot in Paris at Louis Vuitton’s headquarter by German photographer Juergen Teller. The first look book of Nicholas Ghesquière’s premier collection for the French house was impeccable cool: 70s vibes meets ski resort truly melted together in a genius combination. The high turtlenecks with ribbed structure and the sporty tracksuits along with monogramed belts, boots and bags were true perfection. The collection will be the most craved for next season. C a n ‘ t wait for it to hit stores even though spring is just round the corner.
The shoes I want to wear for this Spring comes from All Tomorrow’s Parties. The woman behind the brand is a friend of mine who makes these beautiful sandals handmade in Italy. I had the pleasure of wearing them last summer and I literally lived in my python strap sandals. This season, I you’ll definitely see me in their pointy flats. Another favorite is the slip-in sandal called Rosa, both the black one and python sandal are true beauties…. I am not the only one addicted to them, blogger Columbine Smille has been seen in ATP several times (pics above from Columbine). You can find ATP Atelier’s shoes here.
One of the coolest bag of the season is this hobo bag from The Row. A bit to bohemian for me, but as always the Olsen sister knows how to create the coolest bags. I would definitely go for either a hobo or a bucket bag this season. Two pretty timeless bags which have their revival this Spring. Not only seen in the Resort collection of The Row, also Céline showed off an hobo bag which was literally to die for as well as Dior and Louis Vuitton.
Diamond crusted gold cuff and ring from Saint Laurent. I am very much into bling for the moment and I find it beautiful to just have it as simple as possible, as always… Saint Laurent have done it as well as Gaia Repossi for her acclaimed and self-titled jewelry line. I could wear anything from her, all the Repossi pieces are truly amazing and unique of it’s kind.
Joseph Altuzarra presented one of his best collections so far for Spring 2014. Striped slinky shirts, raw denim, embroidered details, gold and silver metallic lamé paired to perfection with simple jersey pieces in melange grey and white. The New York based designer who has his studio at Howard Street in New York had taken inspiration from Greece and the mythology of the women in the Greek culture.
