As 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! How beautiful isn’t the suede navy trench coat paired with dotted gabardine pants and loafers?
I have got the slip-in ‘Oran’ sandals from Hermès in black (or tan, or white!) leather. Very covetable.
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.
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.
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.
I love these super cool metal fringe sandals in leather from Versace. I like the combination of silver and gold which makes them wearable for anything. A perfect flat shoe for a dressed evening look. You can get them here!
The first look out on the runway from the Isabel Marant Fall 2013 was this one above. A very french, roch chic, laidback look with layered linen tanks and tops (with beautiful studs as perfect details), a pair of suede and leather leggings to a fabolous classic shearling coat. The looks were simple and cool, pieces to love and embrace in your wardrobe. I love the outerwear like the shearling coat as I mentioned, the black wool coat and the short black jacket with pony hair lapels. As for the shoes, I am not jumping high for the strapped ankle-boots (but I have changed my mind before). But I did like the black knee-high pony hair boots. Very Marant. She has created pieces that reminds me of her early days, when a look was completed with a jersey top, a pair of great suede or leather trousers and a perfect jacket. Of course topped of with a breezy and cool scarf.
