Les blues

DenimsI have got blue denim jeans on my mind. The bad weather has striked NY and it is more or less possible to wear jeans now. Anyway, I am constantly looking for another pair and here above are some favorites for the moment. From the left: A.P.C ‘Étroit Cropped’ jeans, and a pair of classics, ‘Pop Betty Cropped’ jeans from Acne Studios. You can find all of them right here.

A white shirt

Vogue Italia March 2013 Kasia Smutniak by Vincent PetersSince I spotted this editorial featuring beautiful Kasia Smutniak in Vogue Italia March 2013, I kind of been having white shirts on my mind. I am always looking for the perfect white color, model, boy-friend-ish, and so on, and this editorial didn’t make my cravings go away… Love the simple look with the hair in a bun, the sleek watch and the hoop-earrings styled with the oversized shirt. It is such a useful piece and timeless piece in your wardrobe so I suggest you invest in shirt that is classic. Underneath I have gathered some cool, and classic, shirts that are available online right now. From top left: cotton-polpin shirt from Band of Outsiders, ‘Reese’ cotton-poplin shirt from Equipment, oversized striped silk and cotton-blend shirt from MiH Jeans and slender star-button shirt from Acne Studios.

Acne Capsule

Acne capsule collection 2013 scarf

Acne Studios has just released their capsule collection for Summer 2013. The collection is inspired by Eduardo García Benito’s graphic illustration of a woman’s face in profile, sketched for Vogue’s July 1931 cover. Jonny Johansson has designed graphite prints which he have been splashing across breezy summer dresses, voluminous skirts, super cool t-shirts, court shoes as well as baseball caps. The designer also refers to the Art Deco era, and mentions in an interview with Vogue Daily ‘Art Deco is the definition of modernism and classism combined’. I couldn’t agree more. My favorite from the capsule line is definitely the scarf, I am head over heels in love with the turquoise one with lime hints, and wouldn’t mind wearing in like the model underneath – tied like a bandana with the knot in front.

A hat and a scarf

Acne AW13 hat black hat and scarf Speaking of scarfs, I remember that Acne Studios showed a cool styling of the silk scarf in their Fall and Winter 2013 collection. The models were wearing satin and silk scarfs – like a bandana – underneath a hat. Such a simple way of styling yourself and apply in your wardrobe. By the way, I love the colors of the hats! Blushed pink, black and navy blue – beautiful colors, especially the pink hue in the Fall (style it with burgundy…love that combination). Anyway, this styling something I definitely going to copy paste for next season!

The Fringe tee

Acne fringe top:t-shirt and skin leather pantsI just spotted this fringe t-shirt from Acne Studios at La Garconne. I love the styling with the slouchy white 5-pocket leather trousers and the beige/nude Alma boots, also from Acne. The ‘Joshi’ fringe tee is available in white as well, but the black one is way cooler especially since this base is washed-out black – a beautiful contrast to all black fringes. If you like me love this tee, go get it here.

Anja Rubik T-shirt and bra: bralettes

I just love these pictures of Anja Rubik sitting in a sheer tank top and underwear smoking a cigarette in issue 38 of Self Service Magazine. From that pictures I put together some cool t-shirt that are available online and in store for the moment. From the left: white short knitted muscle tee from T by Alexander Wang, tank top in nude with ‘Music’ print from Acne S/S13, black v-neck from Acne (love this model), sheer tank from Acne, satin bralette and black leather bra from T by Alexander Wang and black mesh underwear from Weekday. The creme white satin bralette is just gorgeous and would look great to style with a white power suit.

Celebrating Spring

Vogue Netherlands April 2013 Milou van Groesen bicycle

In the April issue of Vogue Netherlands, Milou van Groesen is not only featured on the cover, but also in a story inside. The editorial ‘Plastic Touch’ is, according to the magazine, a celebration to the Spring. I am in love with the picture above, the white jeans, the mens watch that are a bit too loose and the black top, with a very deep cleavage. The messy hair and the colors in this editorial (shot in the evening) makes my cravings for a bit warmer temperatures even bigger.
