Truly dig 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. Super like on 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.
Speaking of Balmain, the Pierre Balmain S/S13 collection looks real nice. I haven’t spotted the pieces in stores yet (more than the tee’s), but I can’t wait to see more of it. Graphic white and black (which is huge right now) is mixed up with romantic, yet modern silhouettes. The collection is inspired by French glamour and the style of iconic Jeanne Moreau, who was a French actress in the 60’s. The campaign and lookbook feature model Anna Selezneva photgraphed by Karim Sadli.
Sorry for the lack of updates but I thought, since it has been Christmas and all, you guys wouldn’t mind. Hope you all had an amazing Christmas with your friends and family. I thought I would get some of you out of the Christmas-mode and into the New Years-mode with this beautiful editorial from Vogue China December 2012. Liu Wen looks amazing in Dries Van Noten, Vintage Dior, Proenza Schouler, Balmain, Jean-Paul Gaultier and Dolce & Gabbana. If you are a bit insecure of your choice of outfit at New Years, black and gold is a classic combination that always work. I myself is going to work something similiar, or anyway that’s what I had in mind for now at least…
A while back I got myself a pair of N.B – yes, a pair of New Balance sneakers. They are so comfy it’s ridiculous. Anyway, I just spotted this editorial in the latest issue of Vogue UK November 2012. Joan Smalls is styled in a pair of N.B sneakers – and in that perfect everyday look – a great chunky knit paired with baggy leather trousers or a maskuline coat. Super nice! The editorial is photographed by Karim Sadli.
The beauty editorial ‘The New Faces’ is photgraphed by Karim Sadli and styled by Géraldine Saglio – from the latest issue of Vogue Paris Beauté. I like the idea of making a beauty editorial a little bit more excited with featuring the hottest and most up-coming models in it and making they talk about their beauty habits. Not anything particular exciting but just adding a more relaxed vibe over the magazine.
