Phoebe Philo is absolutely one of the greatest designers of all time. Love her design for Chloé back in the days as well as Céline nowadays. Not only can she create beautiful looks, but she also dress impeccable cool with simple, classic and effortless looks. Always with the thought of less is more. There is an interview with Philo in the latest issue of Vogue US March 2013 and I have got to get that issue! On top of my to-do-list for tomorrow… Anyway, is not that difficult to copy her look. Invest in great basic and luxurious pieces with that not-so-obvious shape. For exampe, go for a pair of baggy leather trousers instead of the skinny ones. Underneath you’ll find a copy paste outfit: off-white wool coat from Céline, turtle-neck from Joseph, leather trousers from Elin Kling for Marciano, cabas shopping bag in python from Céline and sneakers from New Balance.
Stella threw an amazing presentation for the launch of her pre-fall 2013 collection, and it was not her first time she did a happening like this. The show turned into a small party with a selected group of people invited where the models mingle with the crowd. Anyway, her pre-collection for this fall looked nice. I am not head over heels in love, but there were a couple of pieces that I liked. Stella is amazing when it comes to coats. The navy and black blocked coat was stunning, as well as the blue/turqouise one in a slighter more different proportion compared to what she use to do. Her strenght is within the suits and the navy two-pieced suit with gold buttons is a perfect example of that.
Wouldn’t mind looking like this today at Christmas Eve: striped long-sleeved cotton top from Proenza Schouler, red burgundy pants from The Row, white coat from Baserange, see-through pumps ‘Bis-un-Boit’ from Christian Louboutin, a white small shoulder bag from The Row, a pair of goregous earrings in rosé-gold from Repossi and an id-bracelet from Maison Martin Margiela.
A hat always is always a great accessory when it gets colder. Style it with a boho-chic look and it’s a winner. I find the Maison Michel hats and the ones from Borsalino simply classics, but one brand that has made great hats for this fall is Emilio Pucci. This one in burgundy is in wool-felt fedora and gives you that perfect ‘slouchy’ look. If you usually don’t wear hats, go for a classic and quite neutral colour like black, navy or burgundy. If you dare – go for a super cool hat in pink shade, like the one underneath, with an olive green ribbon, also from Emilio Pucci.
Some great pieces for fall and winter – from the top: Co blue raccoon fur coat, Chloé beige mohair cot and underneath a burgundy fox fur vest from Karolina Zmarlak. You’ll find the here.
…it’s way too early to discuss scarfs, especially the ones in wool or angora. But, I was browsing at Acne Studios website and there were so many nice ones so I had to share. Pink, burgundy, red and grey – four colours I will definitely wear too much of this fall and winter. So beautiful together! You’ll find them here.
Self Service Magazine asked a couple of designers what they can’t live without, their everyday essentials. Camilla Nickerson, stylist, listed her Céline mocha mink oversized Crombie fur coat, her Trapeze bag in burgundy calfskin from Céline and her YSL fall/winter 2001 high-heeled and patent velvet loafers. In the middle you can see what Isabel Marant can’t live without, her fathers old watch. Nice huh? She got inspired of this one when she made a limited edition watch for her own label. The antique-inspired 18-karat gold watch will be sold in her New York store and starts at 9,800 dollars.
