Altuzarra

Altuzarra tumblr resort 2012 sneakersHooked on tumblr pages for the moment, and I know I recommended CR Fashion Book’s tumblr just a few days ago… But you shouldn’t miss out this one, the Altuzarra tumblr. Pictures and snapshots from the archive (like the pic above from their Resort 2012 collection) and daily news about the Atluzarra brand. By the way, how nice isn’t with classic Stan Smith’s? Not really the exact model in the picture, but similar…. Should really dig up mines, they are so cool. Hedi Slimane has done his interpretation on them as well, for Saint Laurent and you can find the white ones right here.

The Boots

Eliza Cummings for Vogue China June 2013 by Daniel JacksonI must say I am starting to dig these boots from the Saint Laurent Fall 2013 collection. I wasn’t a big fan of the pimped-out ones when seeing the collection for the very first time. Somehow I just couldn’t cope with the fact that such a classy, timeless and fabulous brand as Saint Laurent when a bit mainstream and ‘hard-core’ showing of stuff that I basically could find at, well, Topshop (nothing wrong with Topshop though). I do love the fact that I have seen a lot of cool, timeless and classic pieces from the Saint Laurent in stores and web-shops. Apparently Hedi Slimane has created a ‘Permanent Collection’ that will be available all year around and which include pieces like leather jackets, denim, t-shirts and duffle bags that are all a great foundation in a wardrobe. I do like the idea of dividing the brand in such collections and lines. For the this campaign the creative director has captured Danish Freja-Beha Erichsen in the new Saint Laurent store in Paris (and the collection was a celebration of this new opening). Anyway the boots in this editorial is a pair I wouldn’t mind at all for this fall. By the way, great looks in this editorial from the latest issue of Vogue China, June 2013. Eliza Cummings looks effortless smart captured by Daniel Jackson.

Denim

Numéro Tokyo Carolyn Murphy denim and hatJust spotted this editorial in Numéro Tokyo April 2013 issue. I am having a soft spot when it comes to denim editorials, I just love it. Simple, cool, classic, and most important of all – so inspiring. Carolyn Murphy is styled in denim on denim paired with cool statement accessories, like the Saint Laurent S/S13 felt hat and leather harnesses. The editorial is photographed by Nino Munoz.

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.

The perfect pair

Saint Laurent black suede Paris P 80 slouch boots-1Okey, so I have found the most perfect pair of ankle boots and you’ll find them in Hedi Slimanes first shoe collection for Saint Laurent Spring 2013. They comes in black suede with a 90 mm heel and you’ll find them here. Classic but laidback cool for an everyday look. Simply the perfect combination.
