Hermès Spring 2014 Menswear-5As you may know, I kind of never write about menswear fashion. But, since the menswear collections are showing Spring 2014 at Paris Fashion Week for the moment, I couldn’t resist scrolling them through. One collection I just fell head over heel for is the Hermès SS14. I just love the way Véronique Nichanian worked with effortless cool styles and pieces – like boatneck t-shirts, scarfs and sandals. And, all the leather and suede! How beautiful isn’t the suede navy trench coat paired with dotted gabardine pants and loafers?

MMM

Maison Martin Margiela Resort 2014-2I know there has been a lot of Resort collections on the blog lately, but there has been so many good ones! I am absolutely overwhelmed by the spot on styles and pieces, not only by the brands I am usually obsessing over. The latest one to show is Masion Martin Margiela, and I am usually not a big fan, but this collection really surprised me. I love the white look above with the peacock coat, the knee-lenght of the dress and the thigh-high boots. I am all about simplicity and the feeling of effortless cool, and I think MMM nailed it in this collection. I mean, I definitely want that black jumpsuit (crepe-de-chin top with trousers) right now!

On my mind

The Row Fall 2013 bags NavyI am super crushing over the bags from The Row Fall 2013 collection for the moment. They have got so many nice ones, and I love the models in the dark navy leather. I am seriously thinking of getting myself a bag in navy for the fall. It is such a beautiful color to black. I have to wait a bit when it comes to The Row leather goods…. But I know that Céline has got some beauties in navy as well for the fall. I have to check them out.

Stella Resort

Stella McCartney Resort 2014-1I just had to show some of my favorite pieces from the Stella McCartney Resort 2014 line. I am totally in love with the one shoulder jumpsuit and the boxy python dress with long sleeves. We have been seen a lot of yellow fabrics in the Resort-collection for 2014, a light yellow hue, which also the Olsen-twins worked with in their collection from The Row. Stella paired her yellow dress with baby pink (!) mules, which also is a big trend for 2014. We will see a lot of pink, especially baby pink pieces. Overall is a nice collection from Stella McCartney, but I wouldn’t say I am blown away. Although there are some accessories which are making me quite excited, especially the black slouchy shoulder bag with white sides…

More Resort

Marc Jacobs Resort 2014-2 Marc Jacobs Resort 2014-1 Marc Jacobs Resort 2014The Resort lines for 2014 has been very strong and I have seen some amazing pieces and combinations. First of all, there were some fabulous looks from the Marc Jacobs Resort line of 2014 that I just want to copy straight away. I do not usually fall head over heels over his collection but in this Resort line there were some strong looks. Among others these three above with pieces in silk, satin and fur styled with underwear and my favorite accessory for the moment – flats. Max Mara is also a brand that delivered. In their Resort line I had two looks which were my favorites which was the head-to-toe black and the head-to-toe white suit. Kind of dig the idea of pairing a cap to the more dressed-up-look, as well as styling the fur scarf, underneath the suit jacket.

Max Mara Resort 2014-2 Max Mara Resort 2014-1Another brand with a strong Resort collection was Adam Lippes. Simple and effortless looks with that gorgeous feminine touches, such as satin robes and kitten-heeled slip-in’s.  But there were also pieces that embrace masculinity with wide trousers and silk pants with sporty influences. I love these combinations and I am absolutely crushing over those heels for the moment… Wouldn’t mind them both in black and white (!).

Étoile FW13

Étoile Isabel Marant Fall Winter 2013 collection - ad campaign with Andreea Diaconu photo by Karim SadliAbsolutely 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.

Zara

Zara axelbandslös overall Ref. 7452:367

Zara has got a super nice collection in stores for the moment. Although, I am more fond of their online shop than their actual store. I really dig their website especially since their way of exposing the pieces are truly inspiring. However, I browse around on their site just recent and I found this sleeve-less jumpsuit, paired with a flat pair of pointy pumps (or very low height at least…). Such an effortless and timeless look – very The Row and the Olsen twins-ish. You can find both the jumpsuit and the shoes here.
