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, yeez. How beautiful isn’t the suede navy trench coat paired with dotted gabardine pants and loafers? Pyjama party deluxe.
For the moment I have got black on my mind and I wouldn’t mind these cool pieces in my wardrobe. From the top left: black leather loafers from Hermès, leather bomber jacket from Filippa K S/S13 as well as leather skirt from Filippa K S/S13, beautiful satin top from Lanvin, embellished boots from the Saint Laurent Fall and Winter 2013 collection, stiletto sandal in snake from Jimmy Choo (I love these!), slip-in sandals in black leather with gold details from Ancient Greek Sandals, canvas and leather bag model ‘1968’ from Balenciaga and a pair of aviators ‘Luxe Mirrored Sunglasses’ from Linda Farrow.
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 have just started with Pinterest (I know, soo late…). I must say I am totally hooked. After the incident with both a stolen laptop and lost phone it feels great to collect and gather pictures not only on a hard drive. You can find me here.
Document Magazine, which debuted in September last year, is a new semi-annual fashion, art and culture magazine founded by editorial director and publisher Nick Vogelson and creative and fashion director James Valeri. On the cover you’ll find Lindesy Wixon and the darling for the moment, Karlie Kloss photographed by Daniel Jackson. Cool look with the flat loafers…
Stella threw an amazing presentation for the launch of her pre-fall 2013 collection, and it was not her first time she did a happening like this. The show turned into a small party with a selected group of people invited where the models mingle with the crowd. Anyway, her pre-collection for this fall looked nice. I am not head over heels in love, but there were a couple of pieces that I liked. Stella is amazing when it comes to coats. The navy and black blocked coat was stunning, as well as the blue/turqouise one in a slighter more different proportion compared to what she use to do. Her strenght is within the suits and the navy two-pieced suit with gold buttons is a perfect example of that.
Here is a little gift guide for some fashionistas! For the fashionable jet setter: Del Toro ‘New York’ slippers in light grey suede, a Smythson note book called ‘Brunch Lunch Suppers Dinners’, a Balenciaga travel luggage bag, a croco embossed cosmetic bag from Alexander Wang, the most goregous shoulder bag right now – from Céline, a pair of hippie stylish sunglasses from Victoria Beckham, a camera from Edelweiss and some fragrences – these ones comes from Byredo and Grace.
For the golden girl: A golden choker from Chloé, set of gold-tone rings from Maison Martin Margiela, a sheer blouse from Acne, a golden jersey from Stella McCartney, a lovely reptile clutch from The Row, a YSL clutch called ‘Belle de Jour’ (with the old monogram), a super duper lovely fringe bag in metallic from Givenchy and a pleated skirt in creme from Giambattista Valli.
I love the idea of wearing light colours when it’s getting darker outside – and especially when it’s the season of the year when everyone else is dressing in dark colours. This outfit above is truly symbolizing timeless chic – striped pullover and crocodile backpack from The Row, beige wool-coat from Vanessa Bruno, hat from Borsalino, mesh body from Saint Laurent, trousers from Alexander McQueen, ‘horse-bit’ loafers from Gucci and 18 karat yellow gold bracelet from Diane Kordas.
So I spotted these while back on Elin Kling. She got them a few months ago and I thought they were cool but not anything I would wear. And then, bam! I am obsessed (as with everything else…). So I started to look for them and they were sold out everywhere! But when I was in London, two week ago I went by the Tod’s store and they had one pair left, in 35,5! Yeez, trust me, I squeezed my feet so much until they were blue, but I just had to accept they were to small. So they’re still haunting me, even if I know I wouldn’t be wearing them for at least 3 months. But I have to have them, yup. Oh, the loafers are Tod’s and from their 2012-2013 fall collection.
Quite hooked on silver metallic for the moment and since I saw this cover of the coffe-table book ‘Louis Vuitton Icons’ by Stéphane Gerschel I totally recalled my bag-crush with that silver-metallic ‘Miroir Speedy’-bag from Louis Vuitton years back. But hey, isn’t it cool? The greatest thing of all is that I totally fell for it then and I still am. It was such a ‘trend’ bag then and that kind of a bag “that would only last for one season” – but I was so wrong! It’s still super cool and if I find one I am totally going to get my hands on it. Underneath you see the latest pair of Tod’s silver metallic boxcalf loafers with tassels, now available on My Theresa.com.
