I really like this black canvas tote in woven linen and black calf leather from Little Liffner. It’s the perfect bag for the summer. Canvas is such a beautiful material to combine with leather. The combination up-lifts the most simple summer looks and makes them just perfect. This tote, ‘The Tote all-mighty’ is also available in croco-embossed and calf skin leather and you find them both here.
The luxurious crocodile shirt is a piece in the Hermès Spring 2013 collection and a part of the label’s chiffon crocodile shirt line. All of the tops from the menswear collection cost approximately between $60,000 and $100,000. The ancient fashion house has not only made fashionistas around the world raising there eye-brows. Peta says: “The highest price for this rather cheap-looking and ludicrous Hermès T-shirt is paid by the crocodiles who were bludgeoned to death or even skinned alive to make it,” Peta spokesperson Colleen O’Brien. “Peta suggests showing creativity, not cruelty to animals, and offering killer looks that no one had to be killed for to create.”
Just spotted this beautiful crocodile leather tote from Lanvin at Luisa Via Roma. A perfect everyday bag. Love the crocodile leather combined with the smooth calf-skin and the brass details. Very lady-like. Old lady on Upper East like.
Clare Waight Keller has created a very Chloé-ish collection for this fall. I really am fond of the current Spring and Summer 2013 collection and had high hopes on this one, and she delivered. As always, a lot of Chloé-ish details, like the ruffled details on the sleeves, the skirts and dresses as well as the waisted belts that creates that beautiful Chloé silhouette.
I loved the slickback hair, the pale make-up with the cherry pink lipstick on the Prada Fall 2013 show yesterday. The looks were amazing – materials mixed in perfect combination. The mink fur coats and the croco jackets are the collections big winners, as well as the black leather boots and the sky-high wedges in cognac. Through-out the whole collection there was one detail we could spot on several styles, and that was the off-the shoulder design. Knitwear and cardigans were created to show off the shoulders, a beautiful details that I truly love, even more than a bare back or a deep v-neck. When it comes to the accessories, the bags are probably going to be among the hits for this fall. My favourite was the oversized cosmetic bag in a bowling-bag model that the models carried like a clutch. Miuccia Prada worked with both soft plain leather as well as croco in neutral colours like dark chocolate brown as well as popping red.
I am almost speechless because this was an amazing collection. I am just blown away by the simple, stripped down looks with that perfect straight hair and the bare legs combined with sleek gloves. I loved the skirts and the boots! That look is going to be my number one look for fall 2013. The materials and styles were mixed-up in perfection – v-necked cardigans combined with pleated leather skirts, over-sized knitted jumpers with miniskirts and pony-hair shorts with the boots. The collection was not all about the skirts and knitwear, I would definitely say that among the highlights were the white heavy coat and the wool trousers.
…is crocodile embossed bags for the moment. Especially bags from Givenchy. This clutch is one of the favourites, among the Pandora and Antigona bag. As in this picture, the croco-embossed clutch risen the whole outfit. The fuzzy knit and the black leather skirt creates a perfect combination with the bag – street style as it’s best. The idea of using different materials – but all in the same colour – makes this outfit perfect.

The bags from the Lanvin RTW Spring and Summer collection 2013 are amazing! Black and white boxy leather clutches and shoulder bags with gold details are hanging on the models shoulders and in their hands. I love how they complete the runway looks in such perfect way. The vibes are truly glam chic as well as art-deco-style with the wood details as well as the material mix. I have never before been any particular into Lanvin leather goods (too many bows and too….cute) but this coming season will be a big exception.
I love the idea of wearing light colours when it’s getting darker outside – and especially when it’s the season of the year when everyone else is dressing in dark colours. This outfit above is truly symbolizing timeless chic – striped pullover and crocodile backpack from The Row, beige wool-coat from Vanessa Bruno, hat from Borsalino, mesh body from Saint Laurent, trousers from Alexander McQueen, ‘horse-bit’ loafers from Gucci and 18 karat yellow gold bracelet from Diane Kordas.
