There are some great pieces in the Hermès S/S13 collection. Among many I have picked out some favorites. The oversized leather jacket in lamb skin are one of them as well as the shorts in crocodile chiffre, shaded jade or cobalt. Hermès creative director Christophe Lemaire was inspired by a luxurious traveller on a journey in the East, which we could spot on the runway with the models carrying leather backpacks over their sheer dresses as well as the mosaic prints in different pieces.
I have mentioned Monica Sordo’s jewelry before, but I just find these pieces stunning. The ‘Medusa’ collection is fabulous, such a luxurious bohemian collection with a lot of statement pieces. The earrings with gold fringes as well as the bracelets and cuff are my absolute favorites. I wouldn’t mind the all… You can find Monica’s pieces at Fivestory in N.Y. and here. Thank you so much Monica for the pictures.
I usually wear silver accessories as my everyday jewelry. But when the summer comes I always get cravings for golden rings, bracelets, necklaces, cuffs… Anyway above I’ve gathered a couple of my favourite cuffs for the moment. From the top and clockwise: cobalt blue/golden bracelet from Pamela Love, sterling silver with ammolite from Jody Candrian, Erickson Beamon Byzantine gold-plated Swarovski cuff, Yves Saint Laurent arty gold-plated glass cuff and a Oscar de la Renta 24k golden cuff.
You’ll find plenty of great accessories in the online shops right now, especially on n-a-p and My Theresa. Hoop earrings from YSL (these are fantastic and I’m not usually fond of this kind), cardholder in snake from Alexander McQueen, stiletto sandals from Stella McCartney, black lamb bag from Céline, golden cuff from Pamela Love, sunglasses from Illesteva, bracelet with wings from Lanvin, star-studded belt from Isabel Marant and zebra pumps from Giuseppe Zanotti.
I’m too obsessed with Céline right now and I just think this bag called ‘Phantom’ is ultimate. Maybe not in white python but perhaps in brown suede. Or black. Styling it with a black tux from Theyskens’ Theory, a pair of glitter and silver pants from Alexander Wang (Caroline they are on sale now!), Maison Martin Margiela silver arm cuff, white Prada sunglasses and patent leather moccasins from Tod’s.
