On my mind

Shirts

I have got shirts on my mind: doesn’t matter color nor shape. I just want simple shirts for an everyday use. I am like addictive when it comes to the style. I basically use a shirt everyday. Here are my three favorites for the moment. From the top left: Isabel Marant Candice button-down black shirt, Isabel Marant Cheryl blue button-down shirt, and Saint Laurent denim shirt.

Le blues

Denim on my mind - Isabel Marant Étoile jeans, APC jeans and Acne Studio jeansI have got blue denim jeans on my mind. The bad weather has striked NY and it is more or less possible to wear jeans now. Anyway, I have got these perfect medium washed pair from J.Brand, but I am constantly looking for another pair and here above are some favorites for the moment. From the left: Étoile Isabel Marant blue denim jeans Pre-Fall 2013, A.P.C ‘Étroit Cropped’ jeans, and a pair of classics, ‘Pop Betty Cropped’ jeans from Acne Studios. You can find all of them right here.

Isabel Marant pour H&M

Isabel Marant pour H&MOkey, I feel like I am the last person posting this, but I just have to mention it – the Isabel Marant pour H&M collaboration. How fun? So fun! I am very excited about her Fall and Winter collection, so hopefully this turn out to be absolutely fabulous (and why shouldn’t it?). Although, I want to see something different. I don’t want to see the sneakers, nor the ‘Dicker’-style boot. Something Marant-ish, but in a new kind of way. Anyhow, the collection will be out in November this fall and hopefully it will contain one or two coats (!). I am really looking forward to see what coats and jackets she might design, I am keeping my hopes up that it will be a fur or a peacoat.

Étoile FW13

Étoile Isabel Marant Fall Winter 2013 collection - ad campaign with Andreea Diaconu photo by Karim SadliAbsolutely love these first pictures of the Étoile Isabel Marant collection for fall 2013-14. I like the fact that Isabel Marant has gone back to her “roots” – creating pieces that are timeless and wardrobe staples, but of course with a great cut. I had a hard time to relate to the current collection (the Étoile S/S13 collection) with all the flower tunics and pants, owl-printed pullovers, pale colors (like yellow and baby blue) and star-printed jeans… That is why I totally embrace what I have seen this far! God, I love the peacoat, the thigh-high suede boots, the knit and the slight flared jeans with a simple, crisp white shirt. The ad campaign is featuring gorgeous Andreea Diaconu and is photographed by Karim Sadli.
