Spring update

White spring closet - Valentino clutch, Linda Farrow glasses, Balenciaga perfume, Sophie Bille Brahe earrings, Alaïa skirt, Salvatore Ferragamo boots, L'Wren Scott dress and jardin des Orangers pulloverI want to update my closet for spring with white, gold and luxurious materials. The combination of suede, cashmere and silk are to-die-for, especially in light hues such as egg-shell white, light grey and beige. Above I have gathered some pieces that I wouldn’t mind moving into my closet immediately. From the top left: cashmere pullover from Jardin des Orangers, suede laced-up boots from Salvatore Ferragamo Fall 2013, 18 carat gold and diamond earrings from Sophie Bille Brahe, ‘Paris Eau de Perfum’ from Balenciaga, white perforated stretch skirt from Azzedine Alaïa, mirrored aviator sunglasses from Linda Farrow, beautiful eggshell white chiffon and silk dress from L’Wren Scott and egg-shell white clutch from Valentino.

Sophie Bille Brahe

Sophie Bille Brahe gold jewelryLove these pieces from the talented Sophie Bille Brahe, everything from earrings to rings. She works with 18 carat gold and diamonds that makes all of the pieces just stunning and wearable for both everyday use. Above you see my absolute favorites from her ‘gold’-collection. You can find Sophie’s pieces here.

A white shirt

Vogue Italia March 2013 Kasia Smutniak by Vincent PetersSince I spotted this editorial featuring beautiful Kasia Smutniak in Vogue Italia March 2013, I kind of been having white shirts on my mind. I am always looking for the perfect white color, model, boy-friend-ish, and so on, and this editorial didn’t make my cravings go away… Love the simple look with the hair in a bun, the sleek watch and the hoop-earrings styled with the oversized shirt. It is such a useful piece and timeless piece in your wardrobe so I suggest you invest in shirt that is classic. Underneath I have gathered some cool, and classic, shirts that are available online right now. From top left: cotton-polpin shirt from Band of Outsiders, ‘Reese’ cotton-poplin shirt from Equipment, oversized striped silk and cotton-blend shirt from MiH Jeans and slender star-button shirt from Acne Studios.

The Art of Mismatching

Carine Roitfeld‘It started out because I couldn’t find both of the earrings in a pair so I would just put different ones on, but now I do it all the time. It looks so cool, no?’ Carine Roitfeld says on her tumblr. Looks pretty cool to me, perhaps a new trend? Carine wears on the picture an earring from Dior, and in the other ear a delicate and more subtle earring from Chanel.  Have a look at some more of her editorial snapshots here. By the way, I read an interview with her and she seems to be such a fabulous woman. Carine mentioned that because of her age, her body has started to get weaker, and that is why she began to dance ballet. The former editor in chief takes ballet classes every morning and got so inspired by the art form that she dedicated a whole issue of her CR Fashion Book to dance, and her second issue is simply called ‘Dance’.

Repossi

Gaia Repossi Jewelry - rings, necklace, earringsAs I mentioned in the previous post, I just had to show you some of the amazing pieces from Gaia Repossi’s line. All of them are favorites, of course… But if I had to choose one particular pieces I must say I am in love with the ‘Berber’ earring – both in 18 karat rosé-gold and white gold (the pieces in with the four rings in the middle of the pic). You can find the jewelry at Net-à-Porter, Barneys and Montaigne Market.

Girl crush

Gaia RepossiOkey, so I constantly have girl crushes, but there is one particular person I am kind of obsessing over for the moment and that is Gaia Repossi, daughter to Alberto Repossi – as in Repossi Joailliers Jewelry. Gaya who is the artistic director of the French Jewelry brand has this impeccable cool french style, always looking very au natural but with an edge. The accessories and jewelry Gaia creates and design for Repossi definitely take her stylish look to another level. Her earrings, rings and hair pieces are just amazing and I will definitely do an upcoming post about them.

The Hoop earrings

Balmain silver hollow hardware clip-on hoop earringsThese hoop earrings from the Balmain S/S13 collection have been seen in a lot of editorials lately and probably more to come. The hoop earring-trend is definitely one of the strongest this spring when it comes to accessories. And of course, Balmain has made the utterly coolest pair. Have you been looking for these popular earrings and haven’t found them? Well, now you can get them here.

On my mind

Wish List Balmain, Valentino, Acne, Little Liffner, Borsalino, Eddie Borgo and WeekdayI am all about soft colors and hues for the moment, and I prefer it to style it with washed black and adding a popping color – like the cobalt blue one here above. On my mind I have Balmain – above you see not only embellished ankle heels from their S/S13 collection but also the light powder pink shirt, the black dress and the beautiful retro sunglasses. The hat comes from the collaboration Acne Studios did with the italian brand Borsalino for this season (so cool, it’s available in yellow as well…), washed out denim jacket from Weekday (best budget line), cobalt blue loafers from Acne, tassle earrings from Eddie Borgo, see-through pvc bag from Valentino, studded leather clutch in black from Valentino as well and  a cool detail for your bag or luggage – cobalt blue tag from Little Liffner that you can find here.

Golden

Golden jewellery - Pierre Hardy and Noemi KleinGolden jewellery are on my mind for the moment. Wouldn’t mind these bracelets above from Pierre Hardy or the Noemi Klein pieces. The ‘Branch’ ring is gorgeous and absolutely a piece to wear for an everyday use. The ‘Shrimp Fang’ hoop earrings are super cool as well. I am not sure where to find them in store but I know that Farfetch has them (best website ever). The cuffs from Pierre Hardy are also available at Farfetch.
