Acne Studios has just released their capsule collection for Summer 2013. The collection is inspired by Eduardo García Benito’s graphic illustration of a woman’s face in profile, sketched for Vogue’s July 1931 cover. Jonny Johansson has designed graphite prints which he have been splashing across breezy summer dresses, voluminous skirts, super cool t-shirts, court shoes as well as baseball caps. The designer also refers to the Art Deco era, and mentions in an interview with Vogue Daily ‘Art Deco is the definition of modernism and classism combined’. I couldn’t agree more. My favorite from the capsule line is definitely the scarf, I am head over heels in love with the turquoise one with lime hints, and wouldn’t mind wearing in like the model underneath – tied like a bandana with the knot in front.
With influences from the previous post and editorial from the May issue of Vogue Paris, I wouldn’t mind look like this today – a sporty look wearable for day and night – with just adding a pair of heels. From the top left: Alexander Wang reptile silk infusion crop top in white, pleated pinstripe skirt from Nicolas Ghesquière for Balenciaga S/S13, grey suede baseball jacket from Isabel Marant, blister leather baseball hat from DRKSHDW by Rick Owens, black sneakers from Balenciaga, white and black crepe-twill and fishline top from Alexander Wang, both necklace and two-finger ring in gold from Maison Martin Margiela and leather trunk with gold zip from Saint Laurent Paris.
Plaid is apparently one of the hottest trends for this fall along with the girly grunge look. Stella McCartney showed of a feminine, but yet masculine, collection in Paris the other day. She is the master of playing with silhouettes from the both genders – and implementing them into beautiful looks. I believe is not one of her strongest fall and winter collections. I usually jump high for her coats and outerwear but I was disappointed this time. I do like her over sized felt and wool jacket in plaid (above) but over all the coats weren’t mind blowing. Underneath I picked some highlights in details.
Love theses two covers of Document Magazine, which debuted in September last year. The magazine is a new semi-annual fashion, art and culture magazine founded by editorial director and publisher Nick Vogelson and creative and fashion director James Valeri. On the cover you’ll find Lindesy Wixon and the darling for the moment, Karlie Kloss photographed by Daniel Jackson. Love the black and white cover with the flat loafers.
Some of my favourite streetstyle pics from Paris Couture Week shot by Tommy Ton. From the top: beautiful dress from the Chloé SS12 collection (you’ll find it on sale now) paired with a white chunky heels from Céline (true match). Underneath, the cap-trend is still so hot – teaming a sporty Nike cap with haute couture. The Givenchy rottweiler print is back and she style the tee with the fall and winter it-boot from Givenchy. And above, denim with denim – simple but yet very cool. Love the leopard jacket with the denim and the brown-tortoise cat-eye shades.
A huge trend this spring and summer is stars! You’ll find them everywhere – on shoes, clothing, bags and accessories. The whole Acne S/S12 collection was sprinkled with stars cut-outs! Rika, the Swedish brand based in Amsterdam, has the star as it’s trademark and decorate everything from cool bags to basic tee’s with the trendy figure. And Miu Miu showed a lot of pieces with a mash up of stars! Above you see cap from Acne (sold-out everywhere!), pants from Sonia Rykiel, burgundy bag from Rika and a thin silver necklace from the Swedish designer Anine Bing, Anine Bing for Cooee (love that necklace).
Karmen Pedaru in the editorial ‘Rave New World’ for Vogue UK May 2012. Shot by Alasdair McLellan and styled by Jane How. I love the ‘cap-trend’! The styling with the hat looks amazing in this editorial. And don’t you just love the chunky knitted sweater from Isabel Marant in the last pic?
Frankie Rayder in Jil Sander flor styled with Stella McCartney top and Isabel Marant sweatpants, Rochas killer heels matched with bling-bling shorts and baseball t-shirt, Acne leather star cap with Isabel Marant tank and shoes – what’s there not to like? I love everything about it. Well done, Creative Director Karen Langley. Editorial: ‘The L Train’, in Dazed & Confused Magazine issue April 2012 shot by Theo Wenner.
A huge trend this spring is the sporty look. Ad sneakers instead of high heels or, like in the Isabel Marant show, put on a baseball shirt to your favourite jeans. The cap is also a big trend for spring. I don’t know if I like it, yet. Acne (above) showed this cap on their S/S12 show.
