On my wish list for the moment: A micro-fringed chain skinny leather belt from Versace. How cool? You can find it here.
The most simple looks and outfits are the ones which appeals me the most from picture at the Fashion Weeks. The queen of Parisian chic is doubtless Emmanuelle Alt (above) looking great in a shearling coat with fur and a braided black belt in the waist, and (underneath) in black wool coat with satin details. Right behind Emmanuelle Alt, there are two parisians who dress impeccable cool as well and that are of course Capucine Safyurtlu and Géraldine Saglio. I read an article in the Net-à-Porter online magazine, where I found this spot on quote: “If anyone started the hands-free trend, it was the French. Hands are for front-row invites and smokes.” Very true, do we ever see the Parisians with a bag?
I am very impressed over the latest Hunkydory ad campaign and collection. The Swedish brand was founded in 1996 and for me this brand has always been quite dull and boring…until now. The creative directors and co-founders, Ulrika and Christopher Bjercke has done an huge face-lift starting with the F/W12 and continued on this spring. They combine the rock-chic bohemian look very well and is now called the ‘Isabel Marant of Sweden’. For this spring we will see a lot of white looks from Hunkydory, as well as fringe details and thin knitted jumpers styled with sequin pieces such as skirts and dresses. Love the white thin ‘cowboy’ belt and the romantic white blouse! I am really going to try to get my hands on that stuff this spring.
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.
Balmain leather belts as it’s best – in black or white with gold buckle details. Get it here.
