I have got black, white and cream on my mind. Above you find a mixture of Pre-fall 2013 as well as Spring and Summer pieces. Black leather motorcycle jacket from Acne Studios, white wide trousers from Zara (now in store), striped shirt from Dries Van Noten, creme-white shoulder bag, ‘VaVa Voom’ from Valentino, white pumps from Gianvito Rossi, gold necklace Lindsey Adelman, cropped black top from Saint Laurent and ‘Cora’ cropped suit pant from Acne Studios.
Okey, I just love this look above from the Chloé Resort 2014 line, is absolutely amazing! As I mentioned before, yellow is the color for Spring 2014. The entire collection is beautiful, I have got tons of looks on my mind for the spring – like the pin striped denim trench coat paired with the denim boyfriend jeans, the ankle long striped skirt styled with a simple white shirt, and the wide trousers (!) both in white and navy paired with flats. Oh, my the flats are gorgeous, especially the slippers… The creative director for Chloé, Clare Waight Keller, stated that the trousers in this collection gives you room for her “barefoot attitude” – a statement I totally fell for. Waight Keller wanted the proportions to be just right, and sandals, as well as slippers, feels super hot to pair to both a chill and more dressed-up looks for just that perfect relaxed proportions.
Spotted some great pieces in the Balenciaga Fall 2013 Capsule collection by Alexander Wang. I am utterly in love with the dress above (as well as the boots) and I just love the girly shapes and the androgyne styling. The way of styling a dress over a pair of trousers is just so effortless cool and something I must do for the fall. I have a hard time feeling comfortable in dresses (always feels to girly in some kind of way) and by styling the feminine garment with a pair of slinky trousers will definitely make me wear it more. I am also a big fan of the way Wang has worked with mixing materials together, like satin, velvet and crepe-twill, all in the same hue is such a beautiful way of creating cool pieces – and nobody knows it better than Wang. Double thumbs up for the new creative director!
Today I wouldn’t mind looking like this – a very casual cool and effortless look. Just what I like. Jersey top from OAK, wide-leg trousers from Emilio Pucci, quilted Pindot blazer from Raquel Allegra, Superga sneakers in black cashmere from the collaboration with The Row (so cool, love the fact that they are in cashmere), chevron snake amure ring in gold from Saint Laurent Paris, oracle gold-tone cuff from Lanvin, yellow gold watch with leather strap from Isabel Marant and the A5 Papier tote in black from Balenciaga.
Anja Rubik is featured in the latest issue of Vogue Turkey. The magazine which is quite a rookie on the market (since 2010) deliver amazing and inspiring editorials every month. One of them is this this one with Anja Rubik showing of two simple looks. I love the fact of styling an all black look, black on black, as well as the white on white look. It is very effect full. Here above Anja is wearing pumps in black and white from Christian Louboutin, as well as Nicolas Ghesquiére for Balenciga, Sportmax and Céline. The silk satin tank in black/navy shade is Céline and just stunning. Wouldn’t mind it at all… The editorial is shot by Cuneyt Akeroglu.
I have so been curious to see when this amazing satin dress from Céline S/S13 would be featured in an editorial. In Numéro Magazine issue April 2013 model Aymeline Valade is styled in this beauty (the white satin on with black mesh details), along with other cool pieces from Nicolas Ghesquière for Balenciaga, Ricardo Tisci for Givenchy, Louis Vuitton, Dior and Fendi, all styled by Franck Benhamou. I love have the looks turned quite raw with just adding the boots by Givenchy. Richard Bush is the photographer for this editorial.
Just spotted this editorial in Numéro Tokyo April 2013 issue. I am having a soft spot when it comes to denim editorials, I just love it. Simple, cool, classic, and most important of all – so inspiring. Carolyn Murphy is styled in denim on denim paired with cool statement accessories, like the Saint Laurent S/S13 felt hat and leather harnesses. The editorial is photographed by Nino Munoz.
For Vogue Japan April 2013, Iris van Berne has been styled in several stunning pieces from Chloé’s Spring and Summer collection 2013. The editorial ‘Lightness of Beauty’ is photographed by Matt Irwin. I am in love with this collection, such a girly one yet very cool with the wide trousers, kimono shapes and boxy tops. My one true favorite piece is the pin striped trousers in red and white, along with the kimono top in the same fabric.
I spotted these two pictures on Stockholm Streetstyle the other day. Aren’t the looks just perfect for this in-between period that is right now? A great mix of materials, prints and colors. Love the navy turtle-neck to those stunning silk pants from Dries Van Noten (and the Proenza Schouler Lunch bag), as well as the burgundy top to that navy goat fur and grey stonewashed jeans.
So Milan Fashion Week just kicked off and there has been some big names showing their collection already like Gucci and Fendi. One collection that I found very cool was the Max Mara Fall 2013 show. The models were dressed in camel from top to toe as well as mustard tones, black and grey – all styled with flat comfy sneakers. The sneaker has grown from a trend to a shoe to count on, even on the runway! I think it’s amazing. My absolute favourite looks from the show were the 70s inspired ones with the long hair, slight wavy hair styled with a pair of big framed sunglasses – combined with loose fitted pants in either velvet or satin paired with the v-neck jackets and kimonos. Nice!
