MMM

Maison Martin Margiela Resort 2014-2I know there has been a lot of Resort collections on the blog lately, but there has been so many good ones. I am absolutely overwhelmed by the spot on styles and pieces, not only by the brands I am usually obsessing over. The latest one to show is Masion Martin Margiela and this collection surprised me. I dig the white look above with the peacock coat, the knee-lenght of the dress and the thigh-high boots. I am all about simplicity and the feeling of effortless cool, and I think MMM nailed it in this line. I mean, I definitely want that black jumpsuit (crepe-de-chin top with trousers) as we speak.

Beauty favorites

Beauty favoritesI know I rarely mention something about beauty, or speak about any of my beauty routines. But there are so many good products and news for this spring, I just have to mention a few favorites that are available right now. From the top left: the Swedish perfume house Byredo, founded by the super cool dude Ben Gorhan, has released a new scent called ‘Inflorescence’. The new release is a tribute to fresh spring flowers and contains fresh roses and pink freesias with a touch of jasmine and magnolia. Maison Martin Margiela has launched three new fragrances called ‘Replica’ with associations to places like ‘Flower Market’, ‘Beach Walk’ and ‘Funfair Evening’ – “Three fragrances that re-transcribe the scents that speak to all of us, resonate with our imagination, awaken our memories.” Both the scent from Byredo and Margiela are fragrances I have to try. When it comes to lip care I never use lipgloss, instead I have my favorite from Rosebud or Burt’s Bees. Yves Saint Laurent’s ‘All in One’ BB cream is one of the best containing SPF25. If you are going for some luxurious stuff for showering routines, you have to get the shower gels from Byredo – they are amazing! When still in the shower, apply the ‘Bronze Goddess’ from Estée Lauder. It is a body oil spray which make your skin super smooth and it smells like a tropical heaven. And at least a nail polish that will work your nails is this one from YSL in the color ‘Bronze Aztec’.

The intern

I came across this super cool editorial from 2009 and couldn’t resist posting it. The editorial shoot is from an issue of Dazed & Confused, where the Belgian model Anouck Lepère is running around at their office playing intern in her underwear. The editorial is photgraphed by Magnus Unnar and styling by Joanna Schlenzka for the October 2009 magazine. The editorial is called ‘When it comes down to the Bare essentials, Interning just ain’t what is cracked up to be!’ and I love the styling in almost all nude pieces. The thigh-high suede boots in light grey-purple with peep-toe are to die for!

Maison Martin Margiela X H&M

Pictures of the Maison Martin Margiela for H&M collection is out! Here above you find my absolute favourites. I wouldn’t mind get my hands on that hugely oversized peacock coat – exactly what I need in my closet right now. Or the black/navy suit jacket. Another great piece is the oversized white turtleneck jumper. I have to wait until 15th of November though.

Haute Couture

Gorgeous editorial, ‘Haute Couture’, featuring Vlada Roslyakova in the Spetember issue of Vogue Netherlands 2012. How amazing aren’t the Margiela look at pic number 2? Totally amazing and so effect full with that studded mask. The editorial is photographed by Alique and styled by Martien Mellema.
