I would say that this look above is the fashion saviour look. A great warming and stylish coat with a cashmere jumper, a perfect pair of leather trousers and suede pumps will do the trick for a fashionista in New York bouncing between the fashion shows. The white wool and mohair coat comes from Céline, cashmere jumper and black suit jacket from Balmain, leather trousers/leggings from The Row, studded clutch from Valentino, suede pumps from Balmain, sunglasses from Ray Ban, chain bracelet from Hermès and watch from Cartier.
So I am not celebrating New Years here at home in the cold, that’s why I wouldn’t mind looking like these two wish outfits the coming days. First out (the one above) all white outfit: Balmain shirt with golden buttons, python clutch from The Row, gorgeous flared trousers from Stella McCartney, the ‘Tate’ suit jacket in white from Acne, studded silver sandals from Valentino, thin necklace with wishbone from Cornelia Webb and glasses from Balmain. Underneath, a bit more french and rock’n’roll with leather pants from the lovely blogger Elin Kling’s collab with Guess Marciano, shirt (again) from Balmain, watch from Cartier, sunglasses from Ray Ban, shoulder bag in dark grey from Céline and a pair of goregous lace-up boots from Balmain Spring 2013 collection. Just some classic and great pieces!
Wouldn’t mind looking like this today: top from 3.1 Phillip Lim, super cool ‘Octopussy’ velvet slippers from Stubbs & Wootton, dark navy fedora hat from Mason Michel, flared trousers from Stella McCartney, alligator back pack from the collaboration The Row x Damien Hirst, golden Tank Francoise from Cartier, set of golden rings from Maria Black and a pair of classic Wayfarer from Ray Ban.
Just spotted this promotion (in collaboration with the magazine) in the latest issue of Vogue Japan December 2012, and I love the whole denim-on-denim with golden accessories (especially that Cartier watch). A super easy way of getting chic in an instant – just add layers of gold accessories in every kind and you have a great everyday look. Matching denim with denim is always a winner as well, with or without the golden jewellery. The promo ‘My Way of Sophistication’ is featuring Ehren Dorsey photographed by Taka Mayumi.
Would love for it to be a golden Christmas this year! Okey, I know wishful thinking but here are some pieces I can wish for at least: Valentino pyramid golden necklace/choker from the Pre-Fall 2012/13 collection. The necklace is inspired by stars such as Bianca Jagger in the 80’s during the Studio 54 time and encrusted in white diamonds. The Aurélie Bidermann Cusco gold necklace from her latest collection. A Cartier Love bracelet designed by Aldo Cipullo in the late 60’s for the famous French jeweler, as well as the Cartier Tank Francais in 18 karat gold (I love mine in silver, but wouldn’t mind one in gold as well….). And last but not least, Audemars Piguet Royal Oak watch in 18 karat rosé-gold.
It was actually a very long time ago I did the ‘Wish Outfit’-post so I thought it was about time. Okey, so today I would kill for wearing these stuff above – checked wool-blend coat by Giambattista Valli, brocade straight-leg trousers by Jonathan Saunders, rugged jumper from Alexander Wang, clutch from The Row (true love), cat-eye framed sunglasses from Prada, slippers from Christian Louboutin and a classic watch, ‘Tank Francoise’, from Cartier.
I’ve got some huge cravings right now, especially for a watch! Wouldn’t mind this Cartier Tank Solo Francoise in white steel above. More things on my wish list: a soft alpaca sweater from Vanessa Bruno – perfect to wear in chilly summer evenings, a great clutch in crocodile leather – these two from Nancy Gonzales are amazing (especially the one in blue) a pair of great heels like these from Nicholas Kirkwood and a pair of round-frame sunglasses. I’ve been looking for a great pair and these above are perfect, from Cutler and Gross.
