Aloha Isabel Marant!

It’s quite funny to see how amazed Isabel Marant is about the american culture. I mean, she did a lot of western inspired pieces in her fall 2012 collection and now she takes on the Hawaii-style mixed up with some italian-influences (read Cavalli and Dolce & Gabbana). Studded belts and shoes, Hawaii-inspired prints, paisley-patterns and a lot of prints and embroidery in the SS13 collection by Isabel Marant. As always, Isabel Marant delivers a girly but yet sexy spring collection full of great statement pieces. She sticks to what she does best, beautiful tops, short skirts and shorts, lovely dresses and amazing shoes. My favourites? I want to get my hands on the flats black studded sandals, the golden accessories and the white one-shoulder-top. Love!

Essentials

Self Service Magazine asked a couple of designers what they can’t live without, their everyday essentials. Camilla Nickerson, stylist, listed her Céline mocha mink oversized Crombie fur coat, her Trapeze bag in burgundy calfskin from Céline and her YSL fall/winter 2001 high-heeled and patent velvet loafers. In the middle you can see what Isabel Marant can’t live without, her fathers old watch. Nice huh? She got inspired of this one when she made a limited edition watch for her own label. The antique-inspired 18-karat gold watch will be sold in her New York store and starts at 9,800 dollars.

Inspo: French

Three french fahsionistas that inspires! Barbara Martelo in a chic leather skirt styled with a black tee. Underneath, editor in Chief at Vogue Paris, Emmanuelle Alt in a Isabel Marant denim shirt styled with with skinny jeans and lace ankle heels. Above all, her accessories to this outfit are amazing! Cartier watch, Hermès Collier de Chien bracelet and a simple black/golden belt. And last, Geraldine Saglio in a beautiful dark green cable knitted jumper styled with a waist belt and simple black clutch. Perfection.

Wanted accessories

I got a huge crush on cool belts right now. I find them hard to find since I’m very picky when it comes to accessories. These belts above are to die for and I wish I could get my hands on one of them at least! From the top left and clockwise: white/black/golden belt from Balmain, black and golden belt from Balmain as well, thin golden waistbelt from Lanvin, star studded leather belt from Isabel Marant, black and silver belt from Isabel Marant and pearl-embroided waistbelt from YSL. And of course, I would want to wear the belts with a perfectly matched clutch either from Bvlgari (top) or Balmain and a pair of Isabel Marant F/W12 boots.
