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.
…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.
Here is a little gift guide for some fashionistas! For the fashionable jet setter: Del Toro ‘New York’ slippers in light grey suede, a Smythson note book called ‘Brunch Lunch Suppers Dinners’, a Balenciaga travel luggage bag, a croco embossed cosmetic bag from Alexander Wang, the most goregous shoulder bag right now – from Céline, a pair of hippie stylish sunglasses from Victoria Beckham, a camera from Edelweiss and some fragrences – these ones comes from Byredo and Grace.
For the golden girl: A golden choker from Chloé, set of gold-tone rings from Maison Martin Margiela, a sheer blouse from Acne, a golden jersey from Stella McCartney, a lovely reptile clutch from The Row, a YSL clutch called ‘Belle de Jour’ (with the old monogram), a super duper lovely fringe bag in metallic from Givenchy and a pleated skirt in creme from Giambattista Valli.
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.
It is freakishly cold right now and at the moment my biggest problem is to find clothes that keep me warm! Yes, I know, huge problem right? But it is. There are no cool or stylish outerwear that keeps me warm, nore shoes… Well, maybe there are but I am not in the mood for it. Speaking of outerwear, I just spotted these two gorgeous pieces from the Alexander Wang Resort 2013 collection. They just recently arrived at Browns Fashion and don’t you just love them? The bomber is way too cold for these temperatures, but it will look great for spring. Although the leather croco-embossed gilet is perfect for now! If you layer the vest to some chunky knits or maybe some fur. Anyway, Wang’s collections are hot stuff right now! Especially when him turning the Creative Director of Balenciaga. And that is…intriguing.
My wish list is so loooong for the moment but here are four things I crave the most: a croco embossed black leather clutch from Little Liffner, a pair of soft leather olive green loafers from Tod’s (I am hooked on Tod’s for the moment, don’t know why), a pair of slouchy baggy leather pants from Gucci (the riding horse pants) and a cosy turtle-neck knit in grey melange from Jardin des Orangers.
I am in love with all the bags from Little Liffner – especially with this one above – ‘Black Powerpouch’ in croco embossed calf leather. Perfect for an everyday use as well as a very chic oversized clutch in the evening. Thinking of getting me one of them, but can’t make up my mind on which one, gah! You can find them here, as well as Paulina’s (the cool woman behind the brand) inspiring journal/blog.
