Sporty spice

Harper's Bazaar Spain January 2012 Carmen Kass by NicoI really dig this super cool editorial in the January 2013 issue of Harper’s Bazaar Spain. Carmen Kass is photgraphed by Nico in sportwear and traineers paired with beautiful fur coats. I love the combination of the unexpected match. I also like the idea that they have styled Carmen in luxury watches and jewellery, with the sporty pieces. Excersice in style right?

That cover

I know, this is a really old cover. But I just had to post it because it’s so cool. Kate Moss looks perfect on the cover of Vogue Paris November 2004 in her sporty bra from Nike and her majestic green/yellow fur. I believe this cover is timeless, no doubt. I wouldn’t be surprised if I found it in the supermarket tomorrow. Anyway, that jacket, totally crave it! Is it obvious that I’ve started to fancy green and yellow jacket?

Street swag

Some of my favourite streetstyle pics from Paris Couture Week shot by Tommy Ton. From the top: beautiful dress from the Chloé SS12 collection (you’ll find it on sale now) paired with a white chunky heels from Céline (true match). Underneath, the cap-trend is still so hot – teaming a sporty Nike cap with haute couture. The Givenchy rottweiler print is back and she style the tee with the fall and winter it-boot from Givenchy. And above, denim with denim – simple but yet very cool. Love the leopard jacket with the denim and the brown-tortoise cat-eye shades.
