Styling perfection in Vogue Italia August 2015. Alexandra Elizabeth Ljadov is photographed by Christian MacDonald and styled by Alex White. I am looking forward to satin bombers, chinky cable knits and black-and-white hound tooth for the up and coming fall.
Clare Waight Keller has created a very Chloé-ish collection for this fall. I really am fond of the current Spring and Summer 2013 collection and had high hopes on this one, and she delivered. As always, a lot of Chloé-ish details, like the ruffled details on the sleeves, the skirts and dresses as well as the waisted belts that creates that beautiful Chloé silhouette.
I am very impressed with Victoria Beckham’s Fall and Winter 2013 collection. There are some looks that are quite predictable and that I am not that fond of. But, there were some looks that were just stunning! I absolutely love that we have seen more and more designers working with pony-hair instead of fur or leather since it give pieces a very luxurious vibe. Like the college/bomber jacket above with the chocolate brown sleeves combined with glossy black pony hair, or the black dress with short sleeves styled over a basic skirt. I totally dig the styling of the models hair as well – side-parted uncombed hair in a pony tail with a light naturell make-up.
Some of the Pre-Fall 2013 collections are now out! It’s very exciting to see what the trends might be for the fall, even though it’s way too early to even think about next fall… Although if you are a big shopper it can be ‘strategic’ to know what the trends might be, not only for the coming season but for the whole year. Then you get yourself some great pieces that will last in your wardrobe. First out was Chanel and the brand showed a Scottish influenced collection with kilts, tweeds and checked patterns but also with obvious vibes of romance and details from 18th Century. Even the slightly odd, but beautiful combination, Chanel has achieved to create a collection that is very spot on of the trends that will become big for 2013 – the more sophisticated grunge trend. I believe we will see a lot of checked trousers and shirts, styled with loose-fitted pants in leather or jeans – a boy-ish and androgyne look, but yet very cool and sexy. My two favourite looks from the Chanel show are the these two. Love the checked slouchy trousers styled with an olive green over-sized tweed bomber, as well as the look underneath – checked patterns goes overload! Not only Chanel worked with plaid. Theyskens’ Theory showed in their pre-fall 2013 collection, a checked, plaided trench. I love the trend and I am very exciting to see more of it!
It is freakishly cold right now and at the moment my biggest problem is to find clothes that keep me warm! Yes, I know, huge problem right? But it is. There are no cool or stylish outerwear that keeps me warm, nore shoes… Well, maybe there are but I am not in the mood for it. Speaking of outerwear, I just spotted these two gorgeous pieces from the Alexander Wang Resort 2013 collection. They just recently arrived at Browns Fashion and don’t you just love them? The bomber is way too cold for these temperatures, but it will look great for spring. Although the leather croco-embossed gilet is perfect for now! If you layer the vest to some chunky knits or maybe some fur. Anyway, Wang’s collections are hot stuff right now! Especially when him turning the Creative Director of Balenciaga. And that is…intriguing.
I saw this amazing bomber jacket on Rebecca (the Women’s wear buyer at Browns Fashion) and she looked real amazing in it. Then I spotted that Columbine had the same, and looked super nice in it as well (of course, she fits in everything). So now the cravings starts! It’s the bomber above, from swedish Carin Wester. and the beautiful pic above is from Style By issue 11. I’m not sure you can buy the jacket yet, but very very soon. I want it real bad!
