Menswear

Hermès Spring 2014 Menswear-5As you may know, I kind of never write about menswear fashion. But, since the menswear collections are showing Spring 2014 at Paris Fashion Week for the moment, I couldn’t resist scrolling them through. One collection I just fell head over heel for is the Hermès SS14. I just love the way Véronique Nichanian worked with effortless cool styles and pieces – like boatneck t-shirts, scarfs and sandals. And, all the leather and suede, yeez. How beautiful isn’t the suede navy trench coat paired with dotted gabardine pants and loafers? Pyjama party deluxe.

Back to basic

Anja Rubik T-shirt and bra: bralettes

Anja Rubik sitting in a sheer tank top and underwear smoking a cigarette in issue 38 of Self Service Magazine. Classic right? I got inspired by her boyish look and put together some 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.

The Horsebit loafer

Gucci loafers 60th anniversary 1953 loafer

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.

Self Service cover

Self Service Magazine Spring Summer 2013 cover Bo DonTotally in love with these two covers from the Self Service Magazine no. 38 Spring/Summer 2013 issue. The one above is featuring beautiful Bo Don in black, I think, Alexander Wang leather top/bustier (a lot of bustiers for the moment). And underneath, the one and only Anja Rubik. Absolutely one of my favorite super models of all times. Love her timeless and cool look. The covers are photographed by cool Collier Schorr, who said this about the covers: ‘A red lip is like a leather jacket, or a high heel: it says that someone is not afraid to be looked at.’ Pretty cool dude.

Phoebe

Phoebe Philo in sneakersPhoebe Philo is absolutely one of the greatest designers of all time. Love her design for Chloé back in the days as well as Céline nowadays. Not only can she create beautiful looks, but she also dress impeccable cool with simple, classic and effortless looks. Always with the thought of less is more. There is an interview with Philo in the latest issue of Vogue US March 2013 and I have got to get that issue! On top of my to-do-list for tomorrow… Anyway, is not that difficult to copy her look. Invest in great basic and luxurious pieces with that not-so-obvious shape. For exampe, go for a pair of baggy leather trousers instead of the skinny ones. Underneath you’ll find a copy paste outfit: off-white wool coat from Céline, turtle-neck from Joseph, leather trousers from Elin Kling for Marciano, cabas shopping bag in python from Céline and sneakers from New Balance.
