Acne Studios has just released their capsule collection for Summer 2013. The collection is inspired by Eduardo García Benito’s graphic illustration of a woman’s face in profile, sketched for Vogue’s July 1931 cover. Jonny Johansson has designed graphite prints which he have been splashing across breezy summer dresses, voluminous skirts, super cool t-shirts, court shoes as well as baseball caps. The designer also refers to the Art Deco era, and mentions in an interview with Vogue Daily ‘Art Deco is the definition of modernism and classism combined’. I couldn’t agree more. My favorite from the capsule line is definitely the scarf, I am head over heels in love with the turquoise one with lime hints, and wouldn’t mind wearing in like the model underneath – tied like a bandana with the knot in front.
Here are some stuff on my mind that also qualifies on my wish list for the moment! I am all about tank tops right now, even if it’s a bit too chilly for it. But I stack it underneath my cashmere knits and hope that I can start showing them off soon. These two comes from T by Alexander wang, beauties! When the spring starts to come I want to change my knitted scarf to a thinner one, and I wouldn’t mind this leopard silk scarf from Saint Laurent Paris (just in at My Theresa). Shoes that I want; suede sandals in navy from Gianvito Rossi (love these) and the embellished fur slippers from Céline… Accessories; sunglasses from Prada and stack rings from Dries Van Noten (love the silver/gold combo). And I need to update my perfume collection (as well as my make-up) and wouldn’t mind trying the Dries Van Noten for Frederic Malle perfume and getting myself some Chanel make.
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.
Red is such a difficult color, at least for me. I don’t think I own anything red actually, sure I have got tons of burgundy accessories and pieces but no red ones. If I would implement it in my wardrobe I would definitely go with a bag. Red to denim, black and white are a beautiful combination, as well as red and melange grey. Above you can see three stunning pieces: Valentino Va Va Voom flap bag, Valentino studded clutch and Valentino Rockstud bag.
For a super cool grunge look simply add this beauty to your wardrobe. I would style it pretty simple though, with a grey melange t-shirt and a pair of worn-out boots. If you like me, just find it awesome, you can find this printed silk skirt from 3.1 Phillip Lim right here.
Phoebe Philo is absolutely one of the greatest designers of all time. Love her design for Chloé back in the days as well as Céline nowadays. Not only can she create beautiful looks, but she also dress impeccable cool with simple, classic and effortless looks. Always with the thought of less is more. There is an interview with Philo in the latest issue of Vogue US March 2013 and I have got to get that issue! On top of my to-do-list for tomorrow… Anyway, is not that difficult to copy her look. Invest in great basic and luxurious pieces with that not-so-obvious shape. For exampe, go for a pair of baggy leather trousers instead of the skinny ones. Underneath you’ll find a copy paste outfit: off-white wool coat from Céline, turtle-neck from Joseph, leather trousers from Elin Kling for Marciano, cabas shopping bag in python from Céline and sneakers from New Balance.
Love this look in so many ways – the red hat, the slouchy leather pants, the Spanish vibe and the gorgeous hair. Pic from the January issue of Vogue Russia 2013 by Paul Wetherell. In the same editorial you will also find some amazing rings… Can’t get them out of my mind! I think they are Delfina Delettrez but I haven’t got a clue of where I can find them. I have this really nice Maria Black ring that I use almost everyday, which reminds me of these ones. But one of the Delettrez rings would definitely complete the look.
Wouldn’t mind looking like this today at Christmas Eve: striped long-sleeved cotton top from Proenza Schouler, red burgundy pants from The Row, white coat from Baserange, see-through pumps ‘Bis-un-Boit’ from Christian Louboutin, a white small shoulder bag from The Row, a pair of goregous earrings in rosé-gold from Repossi and an id-bracelet from Maison Martin Margiela.
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.
