On my mind

Saint-Laurent

 

Diamond crusted gold cuff and ring from Saint Laurent. I am very much into bling for the moment and I find it beautiful to just have it as simple as possible, as always… Saint Laurent have done it as well as Gaia Repossi for her acclaimed and self-titled jewelry line. I could wear anything from her, all the Repossi pieces are truly amazing and unique of it’s kind.

The slippers

In Russh Magazine Spring 2013 Julia Nobis is styled by Gillian Wilkins in the talked-about shoe. I picked out some pictures from the spread above and I just love the last look – a white Stella McCartney S/S13 dress styled with delicate gold jewelry and of course, the gold embellished slippers from Céline. The editorial is photographed by Benny Horne.

The fur slippers

Céline slippers Spring Summer 2013You can now find these bad ass slippers online, matter in fact at Luisa Via Roma. The baby blue ones right here, and the golden embellished slippers right here. If I would get me a pair I would just go all in and get the golden ones. I would definitely swag around in them all summer long.

Grunge at Saint Laurent

Saint Laurent Fall 2013 grey plaided shirtSince Hedi Slimane turned creative director for Saint Laurent there has been a few changes. First of all it was the name-change, which towards the public is the biggest change. But another great and utterly relevant aspect is the move of the creative studio. From the brand’s headquarters in Paris to sunny Cali, in fact to Los Angeles. So for this collection the main inspiration has been Californian Grunge. From the music to the invites were L.A-ified, with soundtrack from a San Francisco grunge band and art by the L.A painter Theodora Allen. Honestly I fell head over heels for Slimane’s first collection for YSL. The S/S13 collection was mind-blowing. But I was disappointed for this one. Where is the Yves Saint Laurent legacy? The vintage florals feels very unsophisticated as well as the sparkly over-pimped details on the boots. The dresses are fine, well cute, and fits for L.A. But for a fall collection? I’m skeptical. The highlights were the plaided shirts and the oversized cardigans, as well as the massive baby pink fur.

Etno vibes

1970s comic book icon Corto Maltese is the inspiration behind Joseph Altuzarra’s fall 2012 collection. That is why the collection is full of classic maritime looks with shearlings and mixed up with patchworks, prints and etno-chic vibes. I am having this crush on this kind of style for the moment, will probably last in a micro-second, but I very much dig the sweater above. Beautiful embellishments in gold and stunning print.
