I just had to post my favorite looks from The Row Resort 2014 collection, which are quite a few. As you know by now, I am a huge fan of theirs (and their personal styles as well). As always The Row delivers. I love the hues and the colors, canvas-beigen, olive green, navy, light grey, and the up and coming color (that not only The Row showed, but also Stella McCartney and Louis Vuitton) — light yellow. For this Resort line, Ashley and Mary-Kate Olsen said they were looking at uniforms — of sailors, of Japanese workers, of school children — for ideas this season. The thing about the Olsen twins is that they have this amazing eye for fabrics. They make pieces out of the best of the best materials and combine these in beautiful set-ups, like satin and denim, cashmere and canvas. As we can see they stay put to what they love and believe in. For an example they have always highlighted the flats, ever since The Row’s very beginning. And of course, it is implemented in this collection, as well as the semi-long and ankle-long skirts. Well, it is true love as always.
So I was going through my archive of pictures, inspirational editorials, previous snapshots from last season’s runway etc., and I always end up with so much stuff on my mind. Like I spotted this snapshot above, from the Michael Kors SS12 collection, a simple leather sandals that is just super cool – a pair I wouldn’t mind at all get my hands on today. Unfortunately something that can be a bit tricky since it’s last year collection. But I did put together some nice styles that are available today from this season! From the top: Marni buckle strap leather sandal, Saint Laurent Paris ‘Woodstock’ flats sandal with golden details, Marni black leather sandal and ‘Alethea’ sandal from Greek Ancient Sandals.
I am hooked on sandals for the moment and it feels like I am constantly looking for that perfect pair (even if I know I need several more to survive the summer). This pair from Tibi are a good candidate. I am really fond of the all black look – even the buckle detail is black – as well as the between-the-toe strap. I found them here!
I love these super cool metal fringe sandals in leather from Versace. I like the combination of silver and gold which makes them wearable for anything. A perfect flat shoe for a dressed evening look. You can get them here!
This editorial with Doutzen Kroes in Vogue UK Januray 2013, photgraphed by Josh Olins, gives me major cravings for a long vaccation somewhere warm. I wouldn’t mind strolling down a beach in metallic silver shorts, bikins and flat sandals. I think that would be my number one gift on the wish list for this year. Anyway, a little to late to think about that now. But at the meanwhile, enjoy these beautiful and inspiring pictures instead.
Since the weather is great here, I’ve been looking around for summer stuff (read clothes) but also sandals! Above I’ve picked my absolute favourites right now. From the left top: suede sandals from Valentino, embellished sandals from Marni, brown sandals from Proenza Schouler, black flats with gold details from Guiseppe Zanotti, silver sandals from 3.1 Philip Lim and last, absolutely stunning (!) gold studded sandals from Alaïa.
I need some new flats and Lanvin makes the best. Love the model and they always look chic. I’m having trouble to decide though (lol), since I have a black pair maybe nude is the one’s to get. Net-à-Porter has them, so you’ll find them here.
