Skinny heels by French brand Vetements. The brands on everyones lips at the moment. Well not really, but more or less. You didn’t miss Kanye West turning up in one of their oversized hoodies on fashion week in Paris right? Even though the hoodie might not be the to-die piece in their fall collection, I am admiring their aesthetic and how they work with proportions. Several designers in the team have a background at Margiela, so maybe it is not that surprising. And if you look closer at their collections, you will see that there are several signature shapes taken just from Margiela. Anyways, I do like their skinny heels.
Céline Fall and Winter 2015 showed on International Women’s Day in Paris to the soundtrack of Brazilian musician Caetano Veloso. “The best part of this job is finding out more about myself, it gets deeper and deeper into the roots” said Phoebe Philo after the show. “Dressed-up-ness, I was never in the headspace to approach it before. I find glamour and sexuality awkward. When do they feel authentic? What’s real, what’s not?” The models walked on a runway made of terra-cotta tiles from a villa in Rio, which cracked as the models walked on them. And the collection? Simply fabulous.

There is this absolute hilarious irony over the latest Loewe Menswear FW15 look book. A long lost irony which is more than needed, especially in fashion. Yet again, Jonathan Anderson serves us with a beautiful quirky and elegant Loewe collection with a warm color palette and retro silhouettes, which flirts with a certain feminine side that also is seen in the design of Alessandro Michele.

Self Service Magazine always list their essentials for the annual summer vacation. Well, not their own essentials, more or less people in their surroundings and peeps in the industry. I have just recently been in Italy and one of the stops where in Positano, where you can find a beautiful selection of straw bags. There were so many chic bags you get craze mazed, like this Pampleonne basket above from Sarah Lavoine, and I really wanted to get one but didn’t know how to pack it on my way home… Classic, right?
Styling perfection in Vogue Italia August 2015. Alexandra Elizabeth Ljadov is photographed by Christian MacDonald and styled by Alex White. I am looking forward to satin bombers, chinky cable knits and black-and-white hound tooth for the up and coming fall.
