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.

The perfect pair

So I spotted these while back on Elin Kling. She got them a few months ago and I thought they were cool but not anything I would wear. And then, bam! I am obsessed (as with everything else…). So I started to look for them and they were sold out everywhere! But when I was in London, two week ago I went by the Tod’s store and they had one pair left, in 35,5! Yeez, trust me, I squeezed my feet so much until they were blue, but I just had to accept they were to small. So they’re still haunting me, even if I know I wouldn’t be wearing them for at least 3 months. But I have to have them, yup. Oh, the loafers are Tod’s and from their 2012-2013 fall collection.

Line Crossed

The following editorial ‘Line Crossed’ is featured in the latest issue of the swedish BON Magazine. It’s a magical editorial photographed by Matteo Montanari and modelling by Madison Headrick. The styling is perfection! Beautiful coats are styled with simple or printed shirts and turtle-necks – a classic yet modern look worth applying this fall.

A hat

A hat always is always a great accessory when it gets colder. Style it with a boho-chic look and it’s a winner. I find the Maison Michel hats and the ones from Borsalino simply classics, but one brand that has made great hats for this fall is Emilio Pucci. This one in burgundy is in wool-felt fedora and gives you that perfect ‘slouchy’ look. If you usually don’t wear hats, go for a classic and quite neutral colour like black, navy or burgundy. If you dare – go for a super cool hat in pink shade, like the one underneath, with an olive green ribbon, also from Emilio Pucci.

A coat

I really want, and need, a more dressed-up coat for fall (and soon to be winter). I am looking for a classic model with a deep front and with double-breasted buttons. These three above are coats that I would consider, great pieces! To the left: A.L.C ‘Savannah’ and shearling wool-blend coat, in the middle: Paul and Joe Sister ‘Clarence’ coat in wool and to the right: a great piece from Chalayan.

The bags

I am usually not a fan of Phillip Lim’s bags (specially not the Paschi bag…) but this season there are some great pieces. The clutches looks amazing. Oversized fold-over clutches with zippers – perfect for both a casual everyday look or for dressing up in the evening. Another favourite is the small satchel bag in brown – that you can carry in your hands. Taking the clutch (satchel) to another level.

Joseph now online

I love the Joseph stores in London – they have the best selection of brands (Céline, Isabel Marant, Fendi, Balenciaga…). Now you can buy the Joseph clothing line in their very own webshop, which is pretty nice if you ask me since they have stunning pieces. The Joseph knitwear are amazing – soft, classic and cool. And I love the jackets and coats – especially the fur coats. But one thing I do love from their autumn and winter collection is the pleated pants. Go and browse for yourself right here!

Lara in Self Service

I absolutely love these picture of Lara Stone in the latest issue of Self Service Magazine. Her hair is amazing! I want that colour and that perfect lenght. Anyway she is wearing Balenciaga leather skirt in red and Balmain suit jacket underneath. Styling by Suzanne Koller and photgraphed by Alasdair McLellan.
