For The Row’s Resort 2017 collection designers Ashley and Mary-Kate Olsen made a statement by including Frederique van der Wal, Audra Avizienis alongside Olga Shere and Jada Joyce. Four models with almost no makeup and no retouch (?).
I can barely describe by words how beautiful Jacquemus Spring and Summer 2017 collection is. Simon Jacquemus created pieces with inspiration taken from Provençal folk culture in South of France where he grew up as a boy. Also the 80s where definitely represented with puffy shirts and extravagant shoulders. Very flamboyant and very chic.

Céline Fall and Winter 2015 showed on International Women’s Day in Paris to the soundtrack of Brazilian musician Caetano Veloso. “The best part of this job is finding out more about myself, it gets deeper and deeper into the roots” said Phoebe Philo after the show. “Dressed-up-ness, I was never in the headspace to approach it before. I find glamour and sexuality awkward. When do they feel authentic? What’s real, what’s not?” The models walked on a runway made of terra-cotta tiles from a villa in Rio, which cracked as the models walked on them. And the collection? Simply fabulous.
Beige small hand bag called Seema Satchel from Byredo.
The exclusive collection between Byredo and Barney’s New York is simply fantastic. Ben Gorham has created simple luxury travel luggage along with hand bags and accessories in a line called Nécessaire de Voyage Collection. A have huge (read huge) cravings for this particular one above. I am really on the hunt for a beige bag since all my hand bags are in darker leather tones. Anyway all the items in the collection are made with a beautiful precision of details and quality, leaving me simply over impressed. The bags are sold exclusively at Barney’s here in New York but also in Byredo’s own first American boutique that recently opened up its doors in New York’s SoHo. The shop is simply fantastic with its items and interior.
EARRINGS FROM J.W. ANDERSON CRUISE 2016.
So, I am kind of hooked on earrings at the moment. Jonathan Anderson has created very futuristic ones for his resort 2016 line. Super cool if you’d ask me. Wearable? Well maybe not so for an everyday use but at least for those special occasions.
I just had to show some of my favorite pieces from the Stella McCartney Resort 2014 line. We have been seen a lot of yellow fabrics in the Resort-collection for 2014, a light yellow hue, which also the Olsen-twins worked with in their collection from The Row. Stella paired her yellow dress with baby pink mules, which also is a big trend for 2014. Overall is a nice collection from Stella McCartney, but I wouldn’t say I am blown away. Although there are some accessories which are making me quite excited, especially the beautiful satin dresses.
I just had to post my favorite looks from The Row Resort 2014 collection, which are quite a few. As you know by now, I am a huge fan of theirs (and their personal styles as well). As always The Row delivers. I love the hues and the colors, canvas-beigen, olive green, navy, light grey, and the up and coming color (that not only The Row showed, but also Stella McCartney and Louis Vuitton) — light yellow. For this Resort line, Ashley and Mary-Kate Olsen said they were looking at uniforms — of sailors, of Japanese workers, of school children — for ideas this season. The thing about the Olsen twins is that they have this amazing eye for fabrics. They make pieces out of the best of the best materials and combine these in beautiful set-ups, like satin and denim, cashmere and canvas. As we can see they stay put to what they love and believe in. For an example they have always highlighted the flats, ever since The Row’s very beginning. And of course, it is implemented in this collection, as well as the semi-long and ankle-long skirts. Well, it is true love as always.
The polish super model has teamed up with the Italian designer Giuseppe Zanotti in a collaboration for the brand. The small capsule collection contains not only glamorous shoes but also handbags. The Anja Rubik for Giusppe Zanotti shoes are now available in stores and online, and I must say it’s a great collaboration. It is not that surprisingly though, since Anja has great taste, something that pretty much I guess no one has missed. Her off-duty and street style looks are copied frequently and she tops the best-dressed lists more often than seldom. One of my favorite pieces in the collection is the black laced-up gladiator sandals, that you can find here. Yez, they give me huge cravings… By the way, how stunning doesn’t Anja looks in the ad campaign?
