Balmain Resort

Balmain Resort 2014 Denim on denimThere were two looks which were smashing in the Balmain Resort 2014 collection, and that was the denim looks – especially the one above – denim paired with denim. The harnesses are just super cool, as well as the genius idea to style it with an over-sized crisp white shirt (so simple) – as well as all the gold accessories (what is a Balmain collection without its’s gold?). I am definitely going to do a copy cat on the look above, maybe in a more subtle way though.

Les blues

DenimsI have got blue denim jeans on my mind. The bad weather has striked NY and it is more or less possible to wear jeans now. Anyway, I am constantly looking for another pair and here above are some favorites for the moment. From the left: A.P.C ‘Étroit Cropped’ jeans, and a pair of classics, ‘Pop Betty Cropped’ jeans from Acne Studios. You can find all of them right here.

Frame

Frame Denim Le Skinny De Jeanne Abbot

I was at Barney’s New York last week, which is one of my absolute favorite department stores. They basically have it all – well, at least what I need and want. So I spotted the FRAME Denim jeans, which I have been super curious about for a while. I love the simple cut and styles, just exactly how I want a pair of jeans to be. Unfortunately they hadn’t got my size in for the moment, but I am trying to get a pair at Barney’s Co-op L.A instead. The wash above is truly gorgeous, especially now during the summer. But I do need a pair of denim blue ones as well…

Étoile FW13

Étoile Isabel Marant Fall Winter 2013 collection - ad campaign with Andreea Diaconu photo by Karim SadliAbsolutely love these first pictures of the Étoile Isabel Marant collection for fall 2013-14. I like the fact that Isabel Marant has gone back to her “roots” – creating pieces that are timeless and wardrobe staples, but of course with a great cut. I had a hard time to relate to the current collection (the Étoile S/S13 collection) with all the flower tunics and pants, owl-printed pullovers, pale colors (like yellow and baby blue) and star-printed jeans… That is why I totally embrace what I have seen this far! God, I love the peacoat, the thigh-high suede boots, the knit and the slight flared jeans with a simple, crisp white shirt. The ad campaign is featuring gorgeous Andreea Diaconu and is photographed by Karim Sadli.

In bloom

Style By issue 16 by Columbine Smille and Jesse LaitinenLovely 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.

An Other

AnOther Magazine Cover Spring and Summer 2013 Michelle Williams by Willy VanderperreI love this cover of AnOther Magazine featuring Michelle Williams – the laid back look with the boyfriend jeans and college sweater styled with a completely non-matchable accessory, a feather hat. The pictures is photographed by Willy Vanderperre. Inside the magazine there was also an editorial that caught my eye with Kati Nescher photographed by Daniel Jackson and styled by Mattias Karlsson. Wouldn’t mind every single look! Yet again, we can spot the Céline fur slippers…

Denim

Numéro Tokyo Carolyn Murphy denim and hatJust spotted this editorial in Numéro Tokyo April 2013 issue. I am having a soft spot when it comes to denim editorials, I just love it. Simple, cool, classic, and most important of all – so inspiring. Carolyn Murphy is styled in denim on denim paired with cool statement accessories, like the Saint Laurent S/S13 felt hat and leather harnesses. The editorial is photographed by Nino Munoz.

The pieces you need

 

ELLE UK February 2013 by Jan Welters 'The Pieces You Need Now'-2

First of all, Anja always looks stunning. She is definitely one of the models that can rock any looks and pull it off amazingly. I love her look for the moment, with the short blonde hair and that messy fringe. In this editorial ‘The Pieces You Need Now’, photographed by Jan Welters, she is styled in several stunning pieces from the spring and summer 2013 collections from Givenchy, Dolce & Gabbana, Bottega Veneta and more. The editorial is featured in ELLE UK February 2013. My favourite pieces would be the thigh-high lavender sandals from Salvatore Ferragamo, the oversized Saint Laurent hat, the Dolce & Gabbana off-the shoulder dress as well as the blue denim jacket with pearl buttons from Chanel.
