Above and below are the truly dreamy heels from the Christian Dior spring and summer 2016 collection. Patent, pointy, cone heels, and with a bucket detail at the front and on the strap makes these shoes the absolute it-shoe of the season. Also available in flats, similar to the ones Céline showed in their resort collection. This was Raf Simon’s last collection for the Parisian house so they will definitely become collective items. His words about the collection were these among many: “It’s a calm one, and very soft—away from the overdone. I didn’t want to embellish. So I was thinking about the South of France—rainbows and the simple things. And there’s a bit of Victoriana: something of that film Picnic at Hanging Rock. With a slight sexual undertone of darkness.”
I just had to show some of my favorite pieces from the Stella McCartney Resort 2014 line. We have been seen a lot of yellow fabrics in the Resort-collection for 2014, a light yellow hue, which also the Olsen-twins worked with in their collection from The Row. Stella paired her yellow dress with baby pink mules, which also is a big trend for 2014. Overall is a nice collection from Stella McCartney, but I wouldn’t say I am blown away. Although there are some accessories which are making me quite excited, especially the beautiful satin dresses.
For this upcoming Fall, black and white are an huge trend – in pattern as well as in looks. I just love a monochrome look, as you may have realized by now, and to follow up a monochrome look is gorgeous to do it with a pair of shoes in the same color. A white pair of shoes is quite hard to find, but for this Fall season there are going to be a lot of cool alternatives. Like the ankle boots above from Altuzarra with the silver buckle detail or the pumps from Gianvito Rossi. All shoes from Gianvito Rossi Fall and Winter 2013 except for the top ankle boots from Altuzarra Fall 2013.
For the moment I have got black on my mind and I wouldn’t mind these cool pieces in my wardrobe. From the top left: black leather loafers from Hermès, leather bomber jacket from Filippa K S/S13 as well as leather skirt from Filippa K S/S13, beautiful satin top from Lanvin, embellished boots from the Saint Laurent Fall and Winter 2013 collection, stiletto sandal in snake from Jimmy Choo (I love these!), slip-in sandals in black leather with gold details from Ancient Greek Sandals, canvas and leather bag model ‘1968’ from Balenciaga and a pair of aviators ‘Luxe Mirrored Sunglasses’ from Linda Farrow.
Here are some stuff on my mind that also qualifies on my wish list for the moment. I am all about tank tops right now, even if it’s a bit too chilly for it. But I stack it underneath my cashmere knits and hope that I can start showing them off soon. These two comes from T by Alexander wang, beauties. When the spring starts to come I want to change my knitted scarf to a thinner one, and I wouldn’t mind this leopard silk scarf from Saint Laurent Paris (just in at My Theresa). Shoes that I want; suede sandals in navy from Gianvito Rossi (love these) and the embellished fur slippers from Céline… Accessories; sunglasses from Prada and stack rings from Dries Van Noten (love the silver/gold combo). And I need to update my perfume collection (as well as my make-up) and wouldn’t mind trying the Dries Van Noten for Frederic Malle perfume and getting myself some Chanel make.
Gorgeous gladiator sandals as well as fringed heels at the Marios Schwab RTW Spring 2013 show. They are not yet in store but I think they will be available from March. The knee-high gladiator sandal and the t-strap flats are a collbaoration between Marios and Ancient Greek Sandals. I bought me a pair last year from Ancient and I love them. A reason to get me a new pair for the summer…
What an amazig collection! The combination of materials are fantastic as well as the looks. Apparently the first model made an entrance to the very famous champion-song ‘Eye of The Tiger’, which is the theme song to Rocky III. It become more clear that the collection had influences from Wang watching boxing when the models wear styled in boxing-inspired fur mittens and mohair-knitted slicked hoodies. Wang used brushed mohair to give it the material a much more hairy quality, a long with embroidered leather appliqués on alpaca, and overstitched astrakhan with silk threads. The colours were black, grey hues and rust-orange – all gorgeous colours for the fall. I loved the shoes! Sleek satin-slingback heels, the suede heels as well as the ribbed mohair ‘stocking’ ones.
