I just had to post my favorite looks from The Row Resort 2014 collection, which are quite a few. As you know by now, I am a huge fan of theirs (and their personal styles as well). As always The Row delivers. I love the hues and the colors, canvas-beigen, olive green, navy, light grey, and the up and coming color (that not only The Row showed, but also Stella McCartney and Louis Vuitton) — light yellow. For this Resort line, Ashley and Mary-Kate Olsen said they were looking at uniforms — of sailors, of Japanese workers, of school children — for ideas this season. The thing about the Olsen twins is that they have this amazing eye for fabrics. They make pieces out of the best of the best materials and combine these in beautiful set-ups, like satin and denim, cashmere and canvas. As we can see they stay put to what they love and believe in. For an example they have always highlighted the flats, ever since The Row’s very beginning. And of course, it is implemented in this collection, as well as the semi-long and ankle-long skirts. Well, it is true love as always.
Every time on this specific period of the year I start to crave sunglasses. Along comes the problem of which ones to get (huge problem right…). Even though I think I have every shape – wayfarer, aviators, cat-eye, squared…and so on, I always want one more pair. For this season I have no idea of what I am looking for. I have been eyeing a pair from Céline but I haven’t found the right model. Underneath I have gathered some cool ones.
Gucci Pre-Fall 2013 collection looks super smashing! I love the chic and retro vibe through-out the whole collection. Military/olive green skirts and coats (my favourite colour for the moment, as you know...) are paired with light blue shaded pieces as well as grey knits and leopard jackets – a total homerun. The big buckle waist-belt is seen on almost every style and the accentuated waist is not only shown at Gucci, but at the Proenza Schouler Pre-Fall 2013 collection as well. This collection from Gucci is truly feminine with the obvious ‘Mad Man’ vibes and as the finishing touch the models has full and rich plum coloured lipstick matched with side-parted, waved hair. The one thing I would like to have hanging in my closet is doubtless the military green coat and the blue off-the shoulder dress.
Some of the Pre-Fall 2013 collections are now out! It’s very exciting to see what the trends might be for the fall, even though it’s way too early to even think about next fall… Although if you are a big shopper it can be ‘strategic’ to know what the trends might be, not only for the coming season but for the whole year. Then you get yourself some great pieces that will last in your wardrobe. First out was Chanel and the brand showed a Scottish influenced collection with kilts, tweeds and checked patterns but also with obvious vibes of romance and details from 18th Century. Even the slightly odd, but beautiful combination, Chanel has achieved to create a collection that is very spot on of the trends that will become big for 2013 – the more sophisticated grunge trend. I believe we will see a lot of checked trousers and shirts, styled with loose-fitted pants in leather or jeans – a boy-ish and androgyne look, but yet very cool and sexy. My two favourite looks from the Chanel show are the these two. Love the checked slouchy trousers styled with an olive green over-sized tweed bomber, as well as the look underneath – checked patterns goes overload! Not only Chanel worked with plaid. Theyskens’ Theory showed in their pre-fall 2013 collection, a checked, plaided trench. I love the trend and I am very exciting to see more of it!
