This week’s wish list contains first of all shorts (because you can actually wear it now) and some other stuff that are perfect for this weather. From the top left: Rinko Kawauchi’s photo book from the exhibition at Tokyo Metropolitan Museum, Mason Pearson Medium mixed Bristle hairbrush, Lindsey Adelman three stick earrings in 14 karat pleated brass gold, Christian Louboutin Rastafari leather sandals, Prada white squared sunglasses with black frames, Givenchy Gater suede knee-high boots, Acne Valarie split-back washed-leather top, Acne plain-weave shorts, Valentino snakeskin rockstud handbag, Missoni zigzag crochet knit scarf, Repossi gold small cable chain necklace, Saint Laurent leather logo clutch, Theyskens’ Theory Idling printed shorts and jersey racer-back tank from T by Alexander Wang.
From the Prabal Gurung Fall 2013 collection: satin, silk, embroidery, fur details, leather, military, harnesses and gold. Could it be any better? Don’t think so. I love army green and my heart skipped a beat when I saw the color not only in the wool and cotton military inspired jackets but also in the beautiful silk and satin dresses. Mixing black, gold and army green is just such an elegant and cool combination, and Prabal Gurung does it beautifully.
I wouldn’t mind this look at all for today! From the top left: Lanvin hand embroidered leather jacket without sleeves, panel skirt in off-white from Blumarine, black tank dress with spaghetti straps from Acne Studios, canvas and leather tote (just in at My Theresa.com) from Victoria Beckham, black patent leather sandals with gold python straps from Christian Louboutin (just in at Net-à-Porter), earring in 18 karat rosé-gold from Repossi Jewelry, beautiful delicate 18 karat rosé-gold hoop earrings from Brooke Gregson and a pair of classic ‘Wayfarer’ sunglasses from Ray-Ban.
Spring has (almost) arrived! The sun is out and I just want to stroll around in light sheer pieces. Here is a look I wouldn’t mind wearing for tonight: ‘Merci’ leather jacket and off-white long-sleeve knitwear ‘Lia Tulle pullover’ both pieces from Acne Studios, python-print satin and lace pencil skirt from Erdem, off-white clutch with gold details from Saint Laurent Paris, ‘Ambre Gris’ Eau de Perfum from Balmain, crystal embellished pumps from Gianvito Rossi, aviator shades from Ray Ban, gold necklace with charms from Nicolas Ghesquière for Balenciaga and gold ‘Twosome’ necklace from Efva Attling.
Speaking of Hermès Spring and Summer 2013 collection, I have gathered some key pieces for a vacation somewhere warm. From top left: Chloé silk-crepe and silk-blend organza top, orange plissé dress from Stella McCartney S/S13, tan leather sandals from Chloé, black bandeau bikini also from Chloé, canvas and leather luggage bag from Hermès, leather shorts from Isabel Marant, burgundy leather travel case for perfumes from Byredo, leather bracelet from Hermès and a pair of super cool braided suede sneakers from Bottega Veneta (these are actually from the mens collection… I wish they could do them for women as well! So cool.)
I just love these pictures of Anja Rubik sitting in a sheer tank top and underwear smoking a cigarette in issue 38 of Self Service Magazine. From that pictures I put together some cool t-shirt that are available online and in store for the moment. From the left: white short knitted muscle tee from T by Alexander Wang, tank top in nude with ‘Music’ print from Acne S/S13, black v-neck from Acne (love this model), sheer tank from Acne, satin bralette and black leather bra from T by Alexander Wang and black mesh underwear from Weekday. The creme white satin bralette is just gorgeous and would look great to style with a white power suit.
Just spotted this beautiful crocodile leather tote from Lanvin at Luisa Via Roma. A perfect everyday bag! Love the crocodile leather combined with the smooth calf-skin and the brass details.
Wouldn’t mind these pieces in my closet for the summer; suede bomber jacket, black leather shorts and grey/beige slouchy suede boots from Isabel Marant, white t-shirt from T by Alexander Wang, PS1 medium suede satchel in tobacco from Proenza Schouler (on my list!), gold aviators from Prada and the limited edition (of 50 pieces) gold watch with black leather strap from Isabel Marant.
I just love these beautiful suede heels from Aquazzura shoes So simple but yet gorgeous. I have had a hard to time to find where you can get them, but I found that ShopBop has them. This sleek model above is calles ‘Sexy Thing’ and are truly living up to it’s name. The cutout is just perfect, showing of the parts of the feet that looks the best. This model is available in nude and black suede, but for this season Aquazurra has also done a model with python – as a detail on the sole and heel.
One of the most iconic loafers of all time is the Gucci Horsebit loafer. This year the classic shoe turns 60 years, created in 1953. The loafers has been re-made in new colours and are available at both Net-à-Porter and My Theresa, in popping colors of suede and classic leather like black and white. Through the years the shoe has not only been loved and adored by fashion people but also royals and iconic legends.
