I have got blue denim jeans on my mind. The bad weather has striked NY and it is more or less possible to wear jeans now. Anyway, I am constantly looking for another pair and here above are some favorites for the moment. From the left: A.P.C ‘Étroit Cropped’ jeans, and a pair of classics, ‘Pop Betty Cropped’ jeans from Acne Studios. You can find all of them right here.
Talented stylist Marie Chaix has styled this power editorial, ‘Chic Athlétique’, for the June/July 2013 issue of Vogue Paris. Model Hilary Rhoda is photographed by Terry Richardson and looks smashing in Céline Pre-fall pieces (I am obsessed with that buckle belt…), as well as all of the boots (!). The Céline pair with gold front and laces are killers, but I am very fond of the ones with low heel from Reed Krakoff, the black pair above – they would look gorgeous to knee-lenght skirts for the Fall. Chaix has captured loads of trends for the Fall 2013 in this editorial. Waist belt, knee-long skirts and knee-high boots, gloves and white – all trends that we probably will see a lot more of.
Topshop’s more high-end brand, Topshop Unique, has been well-appreciated among fashionistas for almost 24 seasons now. Since the popularity of the line Topshop Unique is expanding and for next year there will not only be a Spring/Summer and Fall/Winter collection but also a pre-fall and resort line. A selection of evening wear and accessories will be featured including georgette silk dresses and tailored jackets. As far as I am concerned, the first small resort collection that will be released in November, looks really nice. Simple, modern and easy pieces to wear both for an everyday use as well as for the evening. What do you guys think?
Speaking of Dior….wow! Love the black and white fur, just gorgeous to those white crepe pants and slickback hair. Reminds me of the Prada Resort 2013 collection (that was to-die-for).
Stella threw an amazing presentation for the launch of her pre-fall 2013 collection, and it was not her first time she did a happening like this. The show turned into a small party with a selected group of people invited where the models mingle with the crowd. Anyway, her pre-collection for this fall looked nice. I am not head over heels in love, but there were a couple of pieces that I liked. Stella is amazing when it comes to coats. The navy and black blocked coat was stunning, as well as the blue/turqouise one in a slighter more different proportion compared to what she use to do. Her strenght is within the suits and the navy two-pieced suit with gold buttons is a perfect example of that.
Oh my, this collection is the best I ever laid my eyes on when it comes to Céline. Phoebe Philo has done an amazing collection with laidback suits, wedged creepers in gold and white, straw hats (that reminds me of my childhood, I wore them all the time…), pleated leather skirts in white, black and orange and goat hair details. The proportions of the pieces are always somehow very outstanding, but very Céline-ish. I love the details with the pearl buttons on the suit jackets, as well as the brass belts.
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.
Pics from the Proenza Schouler Pre-Fall 2013 collection is now out. I was very excited about the PS pre-collection since their previous collections has been amazing. Overall the collection looks pretty great – very Proenza Schouler. A trip to Fuiji influneced the designers behind the brand, Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez. A black and white graphical printed pair of trousers, a skirt or a dress (a print that acutally is formed as the Proenza Schouler logo-print), black and white boxy leather jackets styled with thin knitted turtle necks and pointy black pumps and heeled sandals. I dig the blue and green-ish pieces in a metallic texture because they utterly breathes PS. The newest piece in the leather goods-section (a bag that is available in stores now) is the clutch called The Courier – a quite simple design that will probably become one of the brands cash sales hits.
