I just had to post my favorite looks from The Row Resort 2014 collection, which are quite a few. As you know by now, I am a huge fan of theirs (and their personal styles as well). As always The Row delivers. I love the hues and the colors, canvas-beigen, olive green, navy, light grey, and the up and coming color (that not only The Row showed, but also Stella McCartney and Louis Vuitton) — light yellow. For this Resort line, Ashley and Mary-Kate Olsen said they were looking at uniforms — of sailors, of Japanese workers, of school children — for ideas this season. The thing about the Olsen twins is that they have this amazing eye for fabrics. They make pieces out of the best of the best materials and combine these in beautiful set-ups, like satin and denim, cashmere and canvas. As we can see they stay put to what they love and believe in. For an example they have always highlighted the flats, ever since The Row’s very beginning. And of course, it is implemented in this collection, as well as the semi-long and ankle-long skirts. Well, it is true love as always.
The boots I am dreaming of for this fall comes from Louis Vuitton AW14. What’s not to like about Nicholas Ghesquère’s first collection for Louis Vuitton? I have a weak spot for the girly side in the collection along with the funky vibe all over the collection. Even though ready-to-wear pieces are just too cool (turtlenecks, flappy big collars on short jackets, a-line form skirts and dresses… the list goes on), I have set my mind into the accessories – or to be more specific, the shoes. They are absolute perfection in my eyes; timeless, funky and yet so very chic. A thicker heel and round shape front makes these ankle boots wearable in so many ways. More or less, the ultimate ankle boots.
Issue 4 of Style.com/Print is now released and the fourth magazines is called ‘The Rule Breakers’. Style.com wanted to precise the drive behind punk and the spirit of it – ‘which has never been more important or necessary than now’. For Fall 2013 they celebrate the people who has got the drive to question authority, the rewrites of established codes within fashion and to strive to cause mayhem for fun. Inside you will find an interview with talented Christopher Kane, who’s pieces also are featured on the cover. Underneath I have gathered some photos from the editorial with Kane’s amazing pieces, mostly dresses, with fantastic embroidery and cut-outs. You can also caught an interview with Renzo Rosso, the Italian entrepreneur, who has a portfolio of Marni, Margiela and Viktor & Rolf – and co-founder of Diesel. Just a draft from the interview is this: ‘The latest brand to knock (on Rosso’s holding company) was Marni, but Rosso appears to have his eye on other prizes, too. He bid for Valentino, and rumors recently circulated that OTB was in talks with ex-Balenciaga designer Nicolas Ghesquière about launching a new house under his name.’ A smacked magazine for Fall 2013! Go on to Style.com to order your copy of the 4th issue.
I have so been curious to see when this amazing satin dress from Céline S/S13 would be featured in an editorial. In Numéro Magazine issue April 2013 model Aymeline Valade is styled in this beauty (the white satin on with black mesh details), along with other cool pieces from Nicolas Ghesquière for Balenciaga, Ricardo Tisci for Givenchy, Louis Vuitton, Dior and Fendi, all styled by Franck Benhamou. I love have the looks turned quite raw with just adding the boots by Givenchy. Richard Bush is the photographer for this editorial.
First of all, great cover. Heather Marks looks stunning in an amazing Valentino gown. Second of all, that clutch from Louis Vuitton is amazing! So cool. I have begun to dig Louis Vuitton pieces – leather goods, clucthes, shoulder bags….you name it. Ok, not the cheesy one, by all means. But the cool and retro stuff. I’ll show you more what I mean later. Anyway, this cover is photgraphed by Xevi Muntané for Haper’s Bazaar Spain December 2012.
Perfection kind of sum up these laced-up sude boots from Jimmy Choo. And I kind of want them… They are the typical Emmanuelle Alt/Geraldine Saglio type of shoe. Wouldn’t you say? Anyway, I use to think that if you have a really nice pair of shoes and a super classy and cool bag that you like, you can get away with almost wearing anything. Those two pieces are essentials in a great everyday look. I would add, the ‘perfect’ jacket though. It could be anything – a cool leather, an olive green army jacket, a fuzzy oversized coat or a perfect peacock jacket. I would definitely say that one of the top ten bags ever made is this one underneath, from Louis Vuitton and designed by Sofia Coppola. So if I must, hehe, choose one I would definitely go for this one.
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.
