I love the idea of wearing light colours when it’s getting darker outside – and especially when it’s the season of the year when everyone else is dressing in dark colours. This outfit above is truly symbolizing timeless chic – striped pullover and crocodile backpack from The Row, beige wool-coat from Vanessa Bruno, hat from Borsalino, mesh body from Saint Laurent, trousers from Alexander McQueen, ‘horse-bit’ loafers from Gucci and 18 karat yellow gold bracelet from Diane Kordas.
Leopard is a great way to style a simple otufit with whether it is a pair of slippers or flats, a clutch or bag, a printed tee or scarf. Here above I’ve gathered some pieces that you can find online now. From the top left: leopard printed tee from Roberto Cavalli, red and black leopard scarf from Alexander McQueen, printed silk bra and briefs from Agent Provocateur, pony-hair slippers from Christian Louboutin, clutch in deep blue leopard print in pvc from Christoper Kane and flats from Alaïa.
I would love to look like this today! Chunky knitwear from Isabel Marant, mustard colour fur gilet from Diane von Furstenberg, leather skirt from Alexander McQueen, rosty-red suede fringe boots from Christian Louboutin (amazing!), clutch from Proenza Schouler, sunglasses from Alexander Wang and beautiful 18k golden earring from Aurélie Bidermann.
Slippers are the it-shoes for the moment and here are some of my favourites. From the top left: red velvet slippers from Charlotte Olympia, kitty embroided velvet slippers from Charlotte Olympia, red loafers with sequin skulls from Alexander McQueen, flower-embroided black slippers from Alexander McQueen, gold-embroided slippers from Miu Miu and black velvet slippers with sequin skulls from Alexander McQueen.
The pre-fall collections are hitting the online shops as we speak and I wouldn’t mind looking like this for midsummer! Striped knit from MIH Jeans, golden party trousers from Stella McCartney (pre-fall 12), cobalt blue suede clutch from Proenza Schouler, sunglasses from Alexander Wang, silver patent pumps from Jimmy Choo, skull bracelet from Alexander McQueen, necklace from Givenchy and Hamsa bracelet.
I love my golden twin-skull bracelet from Alexander McQueen! I’ve worn it so much, especially in the summer since I’ll find gold beautiful to sun-kissed skin. Anyway, I like my gold bracelet so much I’m thinking of getting it in silver as well. I just spotted that Net-à-Porter has got it in silver, so go get it here!
So here are some stuff that I’m looking for right now… A pyjama shirt: I want it to look similar to the Stella McCartney shirt above otherwise it just look dorky. A metallic bag: I’m not looking for an-everyday-bag, but this one from Givenchy is stunning. Although what I really need is something smaller, so that one will have to wait… The necklace: Yes, it’s the ultimate necklace, the Givenchy light-gold Obsedia necklace above. I would do anything to get this! Can’t find it! A pair of loafers: I’m looking all over for a pair of loafers. These above are from Gucci and so cool – purple and pyhton. But maybe to crazy for 900 euros? A smaller bag/clutch: This one is from The Row and yes, it’s gorgeous. A logo t-shirt: Looking for a great t-shirt. But the Celine t-shirt above is quite hard to find. I have an YSL-logo t-shirt and I never use it because I feel cheezy in it. But logo t-shirts this spring is the shit. White trouser: These are from Alexander McQueen and I want something similiar.
