Balmain campaign

Balmain Ad Campaign 2013Just spotted these pics from the Balmain ad campaign S/S 2013. Manon Leloup is looking absolutely stunning in pieces from the S/S13 collection. The campaign is styled by Joe McKenna and photographed by David Sims. I am very much into the light natural make-up by the talented Lisa Butler as well as the simple and effortless styled hair.

Chloé strikes again

Chloé Pre-Fall 2013 mint coatClare Waight Keller has by far showed the fashion industry that she knows Chloé by know. Her Resort line for 2013 was absolutely amazing (here), as well as the Spring 2013 collection (here). For this Pre-Fall, she has designed a sixties mod inspiring line, and emphasized Carnaby Street shapes, such as boyish kick-flared trousers and A-line dresses and skirts. The turquoise and mint goes very well with the nude fabrics and it is so refreshing to see such light colours in a fall collection. Although I am not very surprised since these lines are released in the  beginning/middle of the summer. Anyway, it is a great collection and my crush for Chloé will keep on growing.

Wish outfit

Todays wish outfit! Printed silk shirt from Balenciaga, trousers from Rochas, lovely PS11 bag from Proenza Schouler, kitty-embroided slippers from Charlotte Olympia, sunglasses from Lanvin, cuffs in silver from Maison Martin Margiela and a silver Collier de Chien from Hermès.

Proenza Schouler FW12

White from top-to-toe, mint, net-details, the baggy leather pants, fur details (seen on the clutch), Asian/Chinese influence, the knee-high boots, the sporty look – a lot of trends in one collection. Too many if you ask me, even if the looks one by one looked great. Some of the pieces reminded me of a hybrid between Balenciaga S/S12 and Alexander Wang S/S12. I believe that the Proenza Schouler fall and winter collection is cool and yet very wearable, and I guess some pieces will be seen on many fashionistas very soon.
