I loved the slickback hair, the pale make-up with the cherry pink lipstick on the Prada Fall 2013 show yesterday. The looks were amazing – materials mixed in perfect combination. The mink fur coats and the croco jackets are the collections big winners, as well as the black leather boots and the sky-high wedges in cognac. Through-out the whole collection there was one detail we could spot on several styles, and that was the off-the shoulder design. Knitwear and cardigans were created to show off the shoulders, a beautiful details that I truly love, even more than a bare back or a deep v-neck. When it comes to the accessories, the bags are probably going to be among the hits for this fall. My favourite was the oversized cosmetic bag in a bowling-bag model that the models carried like a clutch. Miuccia Prada worked with both soft plain leather as well as croco in neutral colours like dark chocolate brown as well as popping red.
Self Service Magazine asked a couple of designers what they can’t live without, their everyday essentials. Camilla Nickerson, stylist, listed her Céline mocha mink oversized Crombie fur coat, her Trapeze bag in burgundy calfskin from Céline and her YSL fall/winter 2001 high-heeled and patent velvet loafers. In the middle you can see what Isabel Marant can’t live without, her fathers old watch. Nice huh? She got inspired of this one when she made a limited edition watch for her own label. The antique-inspired 18-karat gold watch will be sold in her New York store and starts at 9,800 dollars.
