My favorite looks

The Row Resort 2014-9

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.

That olive green

Edita Vilkeviciute for Vogue Paris Supplement June:July 2013 by Gilles BensimonGéraldine Saglio has styled beautiful Edita Vilkeviciute for Vogue Paris Supplement June & July 2013. I love that olive/military green color in the summer, so beautiful to sun-kissed skin and golden jewelry… Reminds me of that I have to look for a loose-fitted army shirt.

Prabal Gurung

Could it be any better? Don’t think so. I love army green and my heart skipped a beat when I saw the color not only in the wool and cotton military inspired jackets but also in the beautiful silk and satin dresses. Mixing black, gold and army green is just such an elegant and cool combination, and Prabal Gurung does it beautifully.

Sunnies

Céline sunglasses ad campaignEvery time on this specific period of the year I start to crave sunglasses. Along comes the problem of which ones to get (huge problem right…). Even though I think I have every shape – wayfarer, aviators, cat-eye, squared…and so on, I always want one more pair. For this season I have no idea of what I am looking for. I have been eyeing a pair from Céline but I haven’t found the right model. Underneath I have gathered some cool ones. From the top: Céline Audrey sunglasses in olive and nude, red-tortoise ones from The Row x Linda Farrow, tortoise sunglasses with green shades from The Row, gold asymmetric ones and tortoise ones (both) from Miu Miu, acetate frames from J.Crew’s collaboration with Cutler & Gross and aviator shades from Prada.

Sunglasses

Vans x Kenzo

Kenzo x Vans shoes collaboration LeopardI think you all remembered this hyped collaboration from last year? The Vans x Kenzo fourth edition of the signature shoe was unveiled during Paris Fashion Week FW13 and this time the two brands has worked with leopard print. The Clouded Leopard capsule collection is created by design directors Humberto Leon and Carol Lim at Kenzo and the print was shaped during a trek in the Thai Jungle. The sneaker is available in ocher, orange, green, khaki and dark blue (and in the model Era) from March 15. A comfy and perfect everyday sneaker to lighten up your shoe wardrobe.

Chloé FW13

Chloé Fall 2013Clare Waight Keller has created a stunning collection for this fall. I just love the current Spring and Summer 2013 collection and had high hopes on this one, and she delivered! As always, a lot of Chloé-ish details, like the ruffled details on the sleeves, the skirts and dresses as well as the waisted belts that creates that beautiful Chloé silhouette. I have got a pair of favorites. First of all, I am in love with the chunky golden rings with the stones. They somehow reminds me of a collection I have seen before but I am not sure which jewelry line. Anyway, the grey shearling coat was amazing as well as the short bomber in tweed with fur details. The brown croco bag is a winner and it will probably hang on every fashionistas arm this fall. Although I think it has to many similarities with some Givenchy designs – it’s like a hybrid between the Antigona bag and the Nightingale. Maybe a winning concept though.

Wangs first show

Balenciaga Fall 2013 wangAccording to many of the Balenciaga-fans, Nicolas Ghesquière was a genious taking Balenciaga to a whole new level in his fifteen years of service for the brand. I was skeptical at first to Wang, he is amazingly good of what he does but I still found it very odd when they announced him as the creative director for the franch brand. Anyhow, I must say I have been all wrong. I think this collection is surprisingly good. The Balenciaga silhouettes are still there, but in a slight different way. It’s elegant and raw, just like Wang’s own designs. I like the knotted silver bracelets and details on different pieces, the amazing deep green fur jacket and black suede boots. By the way, It’s going to be so exciting to see what kind of handbags and shoes Wang can design for Balenciaga that makes every fashionistas heart turnover (Ghesquière’s cash cw was the Motorcycle bag, and still is…).

Essentials

Essentials January 2013Above you’ll find some of my wardrobe essentials, for this period of the year. 1. I love a huge oversize brim hat. Wear it instead of your beanie and you get a more sophisticated look. The one I have in my closet comes from Borsalino, but this one above is from Lanvin. 2. A chunky turtle-neck in a neutral colour. This piece goes with everything – leather pants and skirts, velvet pants, skinny jeans, you name it. This above is Joseph. 3. A pair of sunglasses are an amzing accessory even during the winter. These ones are my favourites in tortoise, from Alexander Wang. 4. An oversized clutch is a fantastic accessory to an everyday look. Try to go with one in an ususal colour, like the green pyhton one above from Céline. 4. A pair of heeled boots. Okey, these can be quite difficult to work in the snow but for a more dressed-up look they are gorgeous. These comes from the Balmain 2013 collection.

Gucci Pre-Fall 2013

Gucci Pre-Fall 2013 collection looks super smashing! I love the chic and retro vibe through-out the whole collection. Military/olive green skirts and coats (my favourite colour for the moment, as you know...) are paired with light blue shaded pieces as well as grey knits and leopard jackets – a total homerun. The big buckle waist-belt is seen on almost every style and the accentuated waist is not only shown at Gucci, but at the Proenza Schouler Pre-Fall 2013 collection as well. This collection from Gucci is truly feminine with the obvious ‘Mad Man’ vibes and as the finishing touch the models has full and rich plum coloured lipstick matched with side-parted, waved hair. The one thing I would like to have hanging in my closet is doubtless the military green coat and the blue off-the shoulder dress.
