That cape-sweater poncho is simply incredible. Amanda Murphy pulls it off wearing satin trousers and Stan Smiths in their Spring and Summer 2014 issue. Editorial my Alasdair McLellan for 032c Magazine.
Couldn’t, and wouldn’t (!) resist any of these bags from the Céline Pre-Fall 2014 collections. So obvious and such a easy target to go for, I know, but however Phoebe Philo knows how to create perfection – and how to get my cravings going. I would be surprised whenever I get sick and tired of her design…. I am actually wondering when I am about to stop nagging about Céline. But for now, I settle with the most fabulous bags ever. Top of my wish list? Even if it wasn’t a bag from Céline? It’s a python or crocodile luggage. I want embossed leather, preferable slight patent. Dream bag? An Hermès Birkin of course…. Black alligator leather with golden details.
I have got some specific items on top of my wish list for the moment. It’s a never ending story right? Having things you want and crave all the time? Well, I hope it never will end either. It’s nice to have certain things to ‘dream’ about or long for. Even though is just stuff. So much better with a vacation to long for though (!). But, there are a couple of things that I want, which I of course would like to share with you.
Eytys white canvas sneakers: these I have been waiting for a while! Hopefully I’ll get my hands on them next time I am in Stockholm. Céline hobo bag and python wedges: needs no explanation. I just need them. Badly. Acne Studios linen blazer and red mini skirt: the blazer is the perfect piece for me when to use as a jacket when it gets warmer. I have been eyeing the Célinen linen blazer, but hey, 2500 dollars for a blazer is waaay too much. So this is a really nice alternative. And the red skirt, feels very Vaccarello. Super cool and super chic. The Row ribbed sweater: the perfect rib and the perfect color. Dior pearl earrings: I just love these and the fact that they have pearls on each sides. Givenchy silk pleated trousers: silk satin oversized trousers would be a perfect investment this season for my ‘going out’ wardrobe. Repossi gold chain necklace: subtle and simple, the perfect everyday necklace. Chanel credit card holder: I need a new one. My wallet is too big and my current card holder is just, well boring, so I can’t get it out of my head that I want a new one. This one from Chanel is probably one I’d never get sick and tired of.
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.
