This week’s wish list contains first of all shorts (because you can actually wear it now) and some other stuff that are perfect for this weather. From the top left: Rinko Kawauchi’s photo book from the exhibition at Tokyo Metropolitan Museum, Mason Pearson Medium mixed Bristle hairbrush, Lindsey Adelman three stick earrings in 14 karat pleated brass gold, Christian Louboutin Rastafari leather sandals, Prada white squared sunglasses with black frames, Givenchy Gater suede knee-high boots, Acne Valarie split-back washed-leather top, Acne plain-weave shorts, Valentino snakeskin rockstud handbag, Missoni zigzag crochet knit scarf, Repossi gold small cable chain necklace, Saint Laurent leather logo clutch, Theyskens’ Theory Idling printed shorts and jersey racer-back tank from T by Alexander Wang.
Spotted some great pieces in the Balenciaga Fall 2013 Capsule collection by Alexander Wang. I am utterly in love with the dress above (as well as the boots) and I just love the girly shapes and the androgyne styling. The way of styling a dress over a pair of trousers is just so effortless cool and something I must do for the fall. I have a hard time feeling comfortable in dresses (always feels to girly in some kind of way) and by styling the feminine garment with a pair of slinky trousers will definitely make me wear it more. I am also a big fan of the way Wang has worked with mixing materials together, like satin, velvet and crepe-twill, all in the same hue is such a beautiful way of creating cool pieces – and nobody knows it better than Wang. Double thumbs up for the new creative director!
I want to update my closet for spring with white, gold and luxurious materials. The combination of suede, cashmere and silk are to-die-for, especially in light hues such as egg-shell white, light grey and beige. Above I have gathered some pieces that I wouldn’t mind moving into my closet immediately. From the top left: cashmere pullover from Jardin des Orangers, suede laced-up boots from Salvatore Ferragamo Fall 2013, 18 carat gold and diamond earrings from Sophie Bille Brahe, ‘Paris Eau de Perfum’ from Balenciaga, white perforated stretch skirt from Azzedine Alaïa, mirrored aviator sunglasses from Linda Farrow, beautiful eggshell white chiffon and silk dress from L’Wren Scott and egg-shell white clutch from Valentino.
For this upcoming Fall, black and white are an huge trend – in pattern as well as in looks. I just love a monochrome look, as you may have realized by now, and to follow up a monochrome look is gorgeous to do it with a pair of shoes in the same color. A white pair of shoes is quite hard to find, but for this Fall season there are going to be a lot of cool alternatives. Like the ankle boots above from Altuzarra with the silver buckle detail or the pumps from Gianvito Rossi. All shoes from Gianvito Rossi Fall and Winter 2013 except for the top ankle boots from Altuzarra Fall 2013.
Above I have picked out two outfits that I would go with at Coachella. Love the fact that you alternate your style with just a few pieces. For a day look I would go for a pair of white denim shorts from Frame Denim, a grey sleeve-less tank top from Rick Owens Lilies and pair it with a pair of t-strap sandals from K. Jacques St. Tropez styled with a straw hat from Maison Michel, a pair of way-farer from Ray-Ban, Anine Bing Diamond Solitaire rings in gold and white-gold (love these!) and a shoulder bag from Balenciaga (Fall and Winter collection 2013-2014). For a night look – stay tuned with you accessories and switch your sandals to some boots, these black suede boots comes from Rodarte x Opening Ceremony, washed out black denim shorts from J.Brand and a beautiful silk sequin top from Peter Pilotto.
The huge music festival in Cali has begun, and I would just love to be there. Unfortunately, Coachella has to wait for another year for me. As every year the style inspiration and outfit inspo is massive if you dig the boho chic hippie-festival style. I haven’t got any pictures from this year, so for now I just giving you some inspiration from last year. I always find the off-dutie models dressing impeccable cool, like Hanne Gaby-Odiele, Kasia Struss, Jacquelyn Jablonski, Raquel Zimmerman, well the list can go on. And of course, Kate Bosworth (a long with Kate Moss) is kind of like the queen of festival styles.
I just spotted this fringe t-shirt from Acne Studios at La Garconne. I love the styling with the slouchy white 5-pocket leather trousers and the beige/nude Alma boots, also from Acne. The ‘Joshi’ fringe tee is available in white as well, but the black one is way cooler especially since this base is washed-out black – a beautiful contrast to all black fringes. If you like me love this tee, go get it here.
I have so been curious to see when this amazing satin dress from Céline S/S13 would be featured in an editorial. In Numéro Magazine issue April 2013 model Aymeline Valade is styled in this beauty (the white satin on with black mesh details), along with other cool pieces from Nicolas Ghesquière for Balenciaga, Ricardo Tisci for Givenchy, Louis Vuitton, Dior and Fendi, all styled by Franck Benhamou. I love have the looks turned quite raw with just adding the boots by Givenchy. Richard Bush is the photographer for this editorial.
For the moment I have got black on my mind and I wouldn’t mind these beautiful pieces in my wardrobe! From the top left: black leather loafers from Hermès, leather bomber jacket from Filippa K S/S13 as well as leather skirt from Filippa K S/S13, beautiful satin top from Lanvin, embellished boots from the Saint Laurent Fall and Winter 2013 collection, stiletto sandal in snake from Jimmy Choo (I love these!), slip-in sandals in black leather with gold details from Ancient Greek Sandals, canvas and leather bag model ’1968′ from Balenciaga and a pair of aviators ‘Luxe Mirrored Sunglasses’ from Linda Farrow.
