Miu Miu’s ad “Subjective Reality“, its their new campaign for the fall 2015 season inspired by street style icons and photography. As always, this campaign is also captured by Steven Meisel, this time on the sidewalks of New York. Four fast-rising actresses stars in the ad; Mia Goth, Maddison Brown, Hailey Gates and Stacy Martin. Earlier this year, the Prada-owned brand questioned the ordinary with a new installment of its commissioned Women’s Tales series. It’s worth noting that Miu Miu isn’t the only major—or only Italian—house to take its campaign to the streets this season. Gucci also shot its ads on the boulevards of Los Angeles. The marked difference, however, is that Miu Miu crafted staged scenes with full styling while Gucci left its magpies to mingle with the L.A. regulars.
Browsing through 1st Dibs like a crazy person, in usual order. My cravings are these at the moment; Mid-Century smoked art glass bowl by Holmegaard, abstract etching on paper by Jiri Kolar, Italian Mid-Century Chandelier (from 1960s), daybed from the 1950s by Kurt Thut, brass and agate lamp from 1970s, and Swedish rya rug in yellow, white and black.
The thin necklace with a pendant is alway a very relevant pieces to wear, especially for this fall according to the bigger fashion houses. Saint Laurent, Aurelie Bidermann and Altuzarra are three designer who showed of this delicate jewelry. We have also seen Louis Vuitton making a statement with their A-Z letters both prior and on the runway in Palm Spring (there was one of the models having each letter of Louis Vuitton around her neck). Anyway, I would love to get my hands on a C from LV.
The glossy PVC is still going strong since last fall and winter season, and in particular cool in this editorial for French Vogue, featuring Anna Ewers and Mica Arganaraz. Alt couldn’t capture this fall better than with flared trousers, glossy crocodile mini dresses, knee-high boots, and graphic pieces. The editorial ‘Sauvage Innoncence’ is styled by Emmanuelle Alt for Vogue Paris August 2015 captured by Inez and Vinoodh.
Sophia Ahrens is on the hot list on models.com at the moment, and I couldn’t dis-agree. She started her career with a campaign feature in Prada for the Italian house’s fall and winter collection 2013 and the following it up with walking all of the top brands runways like Céline, Chanel and Givenchy. Here she is photographed by Christian MacDonald for Vogue Paris August 2015 in the editorial called ‘Comme un Garcon’ styled by Veronique Didry. And oh my, her hair is simply stunning.
Six pair of shoes I wouldn’t mind in my shoe closet for this fall; black leather boots with wooden cone heel from Givenchy, light beige faux-leather boot from Stella McCartney, black kitten heel from Louis Vuitton, beige and black slingback from Chanel, white sneaker from Céline and woven leather slip-on sneaker from Bottega Veneta.
Love the collar shape of this shirt from the Hermès D’Ète 2015 collection.
La Fontelina Beach, Via Faraglioni, Capri.
If there is one place I would like to spend my vacation during the summer it’s the Amalfi coast, more specifically Capri. My first time at the small Italian island was four years ago and I fell in love instantly. The vibe, the people, the climate, the food, the rocks, the water, everything about it is so relaxing. Also you got some high-end shopping so if you get bored during the afternoons…. Anyways, my go-to beach is La Fontelina Beach and it’s not only my favorite hang-out. Dolce & Gabbana showed their haute couture show at the rocks a couple of seasons ago and after that this beach has been frequently updated by more than a few on different social medias. However, I can honestly say that you shouldn’t go there if that’s your reason to been seen. Its actually a very calm beach, no music, no loud buzz or whatsoever, only the chats from the restaurants, which have lunch sittings at 1 pm and 3 pm. You should alos consider booking your beds before you go here. Its known to be fully booked during the entire summer, especially during the weekends, and mostly by their habitués. Anyways, you won’t get disappointed.
