Balmain Resort

Balmain Resort 2014 Denim on denimThere were two looks which were smashing in the Balmain Resort 2014 collection, and that was the denim looks – especially the one above – denim paired with denim. The harnesses are just super cool, as well as the genius idea to style it with an over-sized crisp white shirt (so simple) – as well as all the gold accessories (what is a Balmain collection without its’s gold?). I am definitely going to do a copy cat on the look above, maybe in a more subtle way though.

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.

Frame

Frame Denim Le Skinny De Jeanne Abbot

I was at Barney’s New York last week, which is one of my absolute favorite department stores. They basically have it all – well, at least what I need and want. So I spotted the FRAME Denim jeans, which I have been super curious about for a while. I love the simple cut and styles, just exactly how I want a pair of jeans to be. Unfortunately they hadn’t got my size in for the moment, but I am trying to get a pair at Barney’s Co-op L.A instead. The wash above is truly gorgeous, especially now during the summer. But I do need a pair of denim blue ones as well…

Elizabeth & James

Elisabeth & James Resort 2014The Olsen twin’s more price friendly line (comparing to The Row…), Elizabeth & James just showed their Resort 2014 collection. Oh yes, the resort lines have been dropping in one after another the latest couple of days. I love the resort lines, they are quite small but often highlights the most important trends for the coming season. In this collection I just loved the combination of styling denim with denim, the flat sandals, the skirts in knee-lenght and of course the headband (!). Love it, and I am so going to start using the ones I’ve got.

StyleBy Magazine issue 17 by Blaise Reuterswärd and Columbine Smille

As you know, I am a big fan of StyleBy and for their 17th issue of the magazine the team went to New York and shot several editorials (which you’ll see when reading this issue). Anyway Columbine Smille has styled this jewelry editorial shot in a tiny hotel room in New York. The model, Luma, looks amazing as well as hair, make-up, clothing – and of course all the amazing jewelry including brands such as Cartier and Eddie Borgo. Very simple, luxurious and effortless cool, exactly the way I like it. The look I fell head over heels for was the one above – denim paired with denim, how cool?

An Other

AnOther Magazine Cover Spring and Summer 2013 Michelle Williams by Willy VanderperreI love this cover of AnOther Magazine featuring Michelle Williams – the laid back look with the boyfriend jeans and college sweater styled with a completely non-matchable accessory, a feather hat. The pictures is photographed by Willy Vanderperre. Inside the magazine there was also an editorial that caught my eye with Kati Nescher photographed by Daniel Jackson and styled by Mattias Karlsson. Wouldn’t mind every single look! Yet again, we can spot the Céline fur slippers…

On my mind

Wish List Balmain, Valentino, Acne, Little Liffner, Borsalino, Eddie Borgo and WeekdayI am all about soft colors and hues for the moment, and I prefer it to style it with washed black and adding a popping color – like the cobalt blue one here above. On my mind I have Balmain – above you see not only embellished ankle heels from their S/S13 collection but also the light powder pink shirt, the black dress and the beautiful retro sunglasses. The hat comes from the collaboration Acne Studios did with the italian brand Borsalino for this season (so cool, it’s available in yellow as well…), washed out denim jacket from Weekday (best budget line), cobalt blue loafers from Acne, tassle earrings from Eddie Borgo, see-through pvc bag from Valentino, studded leather clutch in black from Valentino as well and  a cool detail for your bag or luggage – cobalt blue tag from Little Liffner that you can find here.

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.

Stripes

Street style denim, striped long-sleeved, PS1 by Proenza Schouler and Rag & Bone hatLove the basic and classic look. So simple but yet so cool – striped long-sleeved, pair of denim, inks belt styled with a large PS1 from Proenza Schouler and a black felt hat from Rag & Bone. Nice!

Celebrating Spring

Vogue Netherlands April 2013 Milou van Groesen white jeansIn the April issue of Vogue Netherlands, Milou van Groesen is not only featured on the cover, but also in a story inside. The editorial ‘Plastic Touch’ is, according to the magazine, a celebration to the Spring. I am in love with the picture above, the white jeans, the mens watch that are a bit too loose and the black top, with a very deep cleavage. The messy hair and the colors in this editorial (shot in the evening) makes my cravings for a bit warmer temperatures even bigger.
