This editorial, styled by Emmanuelle Alt, is featured in the Vogue May 2013 issue and photographed by talented duo Inez & Vinoodh. Freja is one of my all time favorite models, there is just something about her look that is so flawless. For this editorial she is wearing couture and show pieces Elie Saab, Giambattista Valli, Chanel and more. My absolute favorite looks are the one from Armani Privé (above) and the Gaultier Paris (below). I love how she work the knotted sequin top with the slitted skirt and the trousers underneath. True perfection, and I wouldn’t mind strolling around in something similar this summer. I totally need to look after a skirt like that! Although maybe a bit shorter, but still. Just gorgeous to a loose fitted tee and flats sandals.
You haven’t missed the CR Fashion book’s tumblr right? I love the CR site and pretty much visit it every day since Roitfeld and her team cover everything from editorial fashion to the latest Daft Punk album and the Cannes Film Festival. In her editorial cover Carine puts a twist on wardrobe essentials. With model Xiao Wen, Roitfeld shows one of the most classical pieces of all time, a Chanel bag, in seven different ways. I love the fact that no matter what style you have, you can wear this timeless piece to it – from punk to hippie. The editorial is photographed by Max von Gumppenberg and Patrick Bienert, and styled by Carine herself.
Lovely blogger and fashion editor Columbine Smille has styled this beautiful grunge-meets-luxury editorial ‘In Bloom’ for Elin Kling’s magazine Style By. The swedish semi-monthly magazine is my absolute favorite and find the features and editorials so inspiring. Anyway, the editorial is photographed by Jesse Laitinen and just captures this Spring’s hottest trend flawlessly – grunge. I love the fact that Columbine has taken the styling to a luxurious level – like styling Chanel with a simple beanie and the beautiful Miu Miu fur stole from SS13 with casual Birkkenstocks. And, oh that just remind me, I am totally hooked and need to get me a pair of Birkkenstock sandals. So utterly nerdy but yet cool – and comfy! I like them a lot and wouldn’t mind at all styling them like in this editorial.
Here are some stuff on my mind that also qualifies on my wish list for the moment! I am all about tank tops right now, even if it’s a bit too chilly for it. But I stack it underneath my cashmere knits and hope that I can start showing them off soon. These two comes from T by Alexander wang, beauties! When the spring starts to come I want to change my knitted scarf to a thinner one, and I wouldn’t mind this leopard silk scarf from Saint Laurent Paris (just in at My Theresa). Shoes that I want; suede sandals in navy from Gianvito Rossi (love these) and the embellished fur slippers from Céline… Accessories; sunglasses from Prada and stack rings from Dries Van Noten (love the silver/gold combo). And I need to update my perfume collection (as well as my make-up) and wouldn’t mind trying the Dries Van Noten for Frederic Malle perfume and getting myself some Chanel make.
Emily Di Danato looks absolutely stunning in this watch-editorial in Vogue Paris April 2013 by Giampaolo Sgura. But, it was not her, but the watches I wanted to mention. Vogue Paris is amazing in finding beautiful, classic and timeless pieces for their editorials, and in this one you can see it is no exception. I love the Hublot watch as well as the Chanel link-watch in silver (the last picture). I love my current watch, and use it every day. Although I wouldn’t mind updating it with an alligator leather strap… But if I would go for a new one a would definitely want the Chanel one, or a Jaeger-LeCoultre (the Reverso is a favorite!).
In the April issue of Vogue Netherlands, Milou van Groesen is not only featured on the cover, but also in a story inside. The editorial ‘Plastic Touch’ is, according to the magazine, a celebration to the Spring. I am in love with the picture above, the white jeans, the mens watch that are a bit too loose and the black top, with a very deep cleavage. The messy hair and the colors in this editorial (shot in the evening) makes my cravings for a bit warmer temperatures even bigger.
I have got some specific items on top of my wish list for the moment. It’s a never ending story right? Having things you want and crave all the time? Well, I hope it never will end either. It’s nice to have certain things to ‘dream’ about or long for. Even though is just stuff. So much better with a vacation to long for though (!). But, there are a couple of things that I want, which I of course would like to share with you.
Eytys white canvas sneakers: these I have been waiting for a while! Hopefully I’ll get my hands on them next time I am in Stockholm. Céline hobo bag and python wedges: needs no explanation. I just need them. Badly. Acne Studios linen blazer and red mini skirt: the blazer is the perfect piece for me when to use as a jacket when it gets warmer. I have been eyeing the Célinen linen blazer, but hey, 2500 dollars for a blazer is waaay too much. So this is a really nice alternative. And the red skirt, feels very Vaccarello. Super cool and super chic. The Row ribbed sweater: the perfect rib and the perfect color. Dior pearl earrings: I just love these and the fact that they have pearls on each sides. Givenchy silk pleated trousers: silk satin oversized trousers would be a perfect investment this season for my ‘going out’ wardrobe. Repossi gold chain necklace: subtle and simple, the perfect everyday necklace. Chanel credit card holder: I need a new one. My wallet is too big and my current card holder is just, well boring, so I can’t get it out of my head that I want a new one. This one from Chanel is probably one I’d never get sick and tired of.
Fabolous editorial in the March 2013 issue of Vogue Spain. Anna Selezneva is styled by Géraldine Saglio in amazing pieces from Saint Laurent, Balmain, Céline, Chanel among others… Love the first look with the red fur sandals/slippers from Céline, the velvet pants and the slouchy hat. The editorial is photgraphed by Giampaolo Sgura.
Okey, so this spring is all about one particular shoe model – and that is the flat espadrille. I mean sure, they were an huge hype already last year when Chanel and Valentino released their logo and lace models, but they are still going strong for this year as well. And this season have not only Stella McCartney a few pairs in her collection (pink or yellow neon ones!), but also Fendi and Chloé. My favourites are still the Chanel pair (since I got them myself) but I kind of dig the Valentino ones as well. What do you guys think? Above: Chloé and Valentino, underneath: Christian Louboutin studded ankle wrist espadrilles and Chanel denim model (comes also in mint, lavender, black and white for this spring).
