Étoile FW13

Étoile Isabel Marant Fall Winter 2013 collection - ad campaign with Andreea Diaconu photo by Karim SadliTruly dig these first pictures of the Étoile Isabel Marant collection for fall 2013-14. I like the fact that Isabel Marant has gone back to her “roots” – creating pieces that are timeless and wardrobe staples, but of course with a great cut. I had a hard time to relate to the current collection (the Étoile S/S13 collection) with all the flower tunics and pants, owl-printed pullovers, pale colors (like yellow and baby blue) and star-printed jeans… That is why I totally embrace what I have seen this far. Super like on the peacoat, the thigh-high suede boots, the knit and the slight flared jeans with a simple, crisp white shirt. The ad campaign is featuring gorgeous Andreea Diaconu and is photographed by Karim Sadli.

Sunnies

Céline sunglasses ad campaignEvery time on this specific period of the year I start to crave sunglasses. Along comes the problem of which ones to get (huge problem right…). Even though I think I have every shape – wayfarer, aviators, cat-eye, squared…and so on, I always want one more pair. For this season I have no idea of what I am looking for. I have been eyeing a pair from Céline but I haven’t found the right model. Underneath I have gathered some cool ones.

Daria for Maiyet

I love the relaxed looks and the au-natural make-up/hair styling in the campaign and Daria looks amazing in that hair cut. The luxurious and boho chic brand Maiyet creates gorgeous dresses and sandals for that perfect relaxed vaccation look. Have a look for yourself, right here.

Pierre Balmain

Pierre Balmain Spring 2013 black dressSpeaking of Balmain, the Pierre Balmain S/S13 collection looks real nice. I haven’t spotted the pieces in stores yet (more than the tee’s), but I can’t wait to see more of it. Graphic white and black (which is huge right now) is mixed up with romantic, yet modern silhouettes. The collection is inspired by French glamour and the style of iconic Jeanne Moreau, who was a French actress in the 60’s. The campaign and lookbook feature model Anna Selezneva photgraphed by Karim Sadli.

Balmain campaign

Balmain Ad Campaign 2013Just spotted these pics from the Balmain ad campaign S/S 2013. Manon Leloup is looking absolutely stunning in pieces from the S/S13 collection. The campaign is styled by Joe McKenna and photographed by David Sims. I am very much into the light natural make-up by the talented Lisa Butler as well as the simple and effortless styled hair.

The ad

Celine ad campaign spring 2013I might be the last one posting this ad…but I just have to. The Céline Spring 2013 ad campaign featuring Daria Webory photographed by Juergen Teller is perfection. In the past, Céline has created some truly inspiring and to-die-for ads and this one isn’t an exception. The idea of wearing and pairing slippers with a smoking hot suit is genious, and makes this ad one of the coolest this spring.

Valentino crush

Valentino ad campaign spring 2012 trenchcoatI have the biggest crush ever on Valentino for the moment. There are som many great pieces in the Spring 2013 collection, I don’t even know where to begin! But my biggest fashion crush is the one I have on their leather goods collection as well as the shoe collection for this spring. I know that the studded collection isn’t new at all but there is something remarkable cool about this collection. Like the plastic see-through shoulder bag with beige details for an example, or the classic medium studded clutch in different kinds of colours and leather… When it comes to the clothing in this collection I can get enough of the girly yet very classy pieces, the lace and the mesh nor the snake print effects in everything from dresses to handbags. But the most amazing piece of all is the studded pvc trench coat (on the picture above). Well, it’s a great collection and hopefully we will see it in many stylish editorials and features this spring.
