Joseph Altuzarra presented one of his best collections so far for Spring 2014. Striped slinky shirts, raw denim, embroidered details, gold and silver metallic lamé paired to perfection with simple jersey pieces in melange grey and white. The New York based designer who has his studio at Howard Street in New York had taken inspiration from Greece and the mythology of the women in the Greek culture.
Remember me talking about it here? Oh, yes I can’t take this bag off my mind. It’s basically hunting, me that’s for sure. It’s such a stunning bag, yet so different. And very 90s if you ask me. However, it’s a true classic and I just love it. Wouldn’t mind this one above hanging on my shoulder. You can find this Fendi Baguette bag in metallic here.
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.
These hoop earrings from the Balmain S/S13 collection have been seen in a lot of editorials lately and probably more to come. The hoop earring-trend is definitely one of the strongest this spring when it comes to accessories. And of course, Balmain has made the utterly coolest pair. Have you been looking for these popular earrings and haven’t found them? Well, now you can get them here.
I totally fell head over heels with this previous editorial, ‘New York’ from the latest Vogue Paris. That is why I had to throw some things together to re-create a mix of the looks in the editorial. I just love the idea of taking on the Grunge-style in a bit more sophisticated way. Like pairing slippers with a classy trench coat or an elegant suit jacket in satin. Or giving the pleated/checked pieces an lighter feeling, like the Dries Van Noten shirt and trousers in checked wowen silk. Mixing heavy materials like wool and denim, with luxurious ones like silk and mesh, creates a flawless and very wearable look. On top left you’ll find: trousers from Theory, silver metallic jacket from Rochas, crepe and silk-blended satin tuxedo jacket from Guilietta, suede waist-belt from Alaïa, slippers with fur details from Céline S/S13, socks from Falke and leopard gloves from Alaïa.
Speaking of those amazing hoop earrings from Balmain…. If you can’t get your hands on the fabolous oversized pair from Balmain, there are some nice alternatives. Like the braided Bottega Veneta ones above. You can find them here.
Today’s wish outfit: kick-flared leather pants from The Row (amazing pants…), white wedge leather shoes from Stella McCartney Resort 2013 (now in stores), cosy knitwear from La Garconne, fantastic ‘Box’ bag from Céline in metallic silver, small leather wallet in white with silver metallic studs from Proenza Schouler, a classic pair of Wayfarer from Rayban and to top of the outfit I would do it with a classic arm piece in silver from Maison Martin Marigela. Of course would the Smythson ‘New York, London, Milan & Paris’ calender be stuffed into the bag as well.
Here above you’ll see some stuff that is on my mind right now (love the idea of dressing in white in the winter – super sophisticated!). ‘Hunston’ chunky knit turtleneck from The Row, white flared-denim jeans from Emilio Pucci, a python shoulder bag from Chanel, silver metallic classic pumps from Jimmy Choo, 18-karat gold and diamond ring from Diane Kordas and the lovely Balmain ‘Amber Gris’ from Balmain.
