Talented stylist Marie Chaix has styled this power editorial, ‘Chic Athlétique’, for the June/July 2013 issue of Vogue Paris. Model Hilary Rhoda is photographed by Terry Richardson and looks smashing in Céline Pre-fall pieces (I am obsessed with that buckle belt…), as well as all of the boots (!). The Céline pair with gold front and laces are killers, but I am very fond of the ones with low heel from Reed Krakoff, the black pair above – they would look gorgeous to knee-lenght skirts for the Fall. Chaix has captured loads of trends for the Fall 2013 in this editorial. Waist belt, knee-long skirts and knee-high boots, gloves and white – all trends that we probably will see a lot more of.
Absolutely love 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! God, I love 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.
Oh my, this collection is the best I ever laid my eyes on when it comes to Céline. Phoebe Philo has done an amazing collection with laidback suits, wedged creepers in gold and white, straw hats (that reminds me of my childhood, I wore them all the time…), pleated leather skirts in white, black and orange and goat hair details. The proportions of the pieces are always somehow very outstanding, but very Céline-ish. I love the details with the pearl buttons on the suit jackets, as well as the brass belts.
It’s so hard to find a perfect leather skirt but, the doubtless coolest right, now is this one, the belted leather pencil skirt from Gucci, and I wouldn’t mind at all for it to be hanging in my closet. Perfect lenght and I love the belt-detail. Anyway, if you feel like spending a small fortune on a skirt, you’ll find it here.
