Okey, I know there’s a lot of Chloé-posts on the blog at the moment, but I can’t get the brand of my mind. Ever since Clare Weight Keller took over as the Creative Director in 2011, I have more and more fallen head-over-heels over the previous collections. I mean sure, Hannah McGibbon was almost some kind of rockstar within the business, and don’t get me wrong, she is a star, but there something very attractive with the ‘new-old’ design. Anyway, I just had to post these pictures from the Chloé Resort 2013 colletion. These three styles are my absolute favourites. I must have those wooden and black leather heels, they are amazing. Some Chloé Resort 2013 pieces has been released in the webshops already, but not yet these… Another piece that I am craving is the black off-the-shoulder dress. Beautiful!
Balmain celebrated the launch of their new bag, the ‘Pierre Bag’ with a dinner in New York for a couple of days ago. The bag is a collaboration with Balmain Creative Director Olivier Rousteing and the super cool jewellery designer Aurélie Bidermann. The majority of the crowd who came were dressed in Balmain Ready-to-Wear S/S13 – pink suits, black and white prints, pearl-embroided vests and amazing dresses from the spring collection.
I am hooked on these two looks for the moment, from the Resort 2013 collection from my absolute favourite brand, The Row. The all black vs. the all white look are such simple, yet effect full, way of dressing. That black pony hair and leather jacket are to die for, as well as the backpack with silver details….For the moment, I am also hooked on turtle necks (I guess because of the cold outside) and I like the simple way of styling it with a coat – and nothing more around the neck (no scarf, etc.) If I haven’t said it before, I must say that I am very impressed with the Olsen sisters work. Even at a such young age, they don’t capture the youth nor accenture it. Instead the sisters emphasising on a much more modern and hip, yet classic, look that work in wide age range as well as for a much longer perspective. And I love how they make everything so luxurious.
It is freakishly cold right now and at the moment my biggest problem is to find clothes that keep me warm! Yes, I know, huge problem right? But it is. There are no cool or stylish outerwear that keeps me warm, nore shoes… Well, maybe there are but I am not in the mood for it. Speaking of outerwear, I just spotted these two gorgeous pieces from the Alexander Wang Resort 2013 collection. They just recently arrived at Browns Fashion and don’t you just love them? The bomber is way too cold for these temperatures, but it will look great for spring. Although the leather croco-embossed gilet is perfect for now! If you layer the vest to some chunky knits or maybe some fur. Anyway, Wang’s collections are hot stuff right now! Especially when him turning the Creative Director of Balenciaga. And that is…intriguing.
Wow! I totally dig these Stella McCartney Carlton high-rise woven pants from her Resort 2013 collection. I love that they are flared, and I’ve actually been looking for a pair in black! There are tons of denim ones out in the stores, but no really cool pair of black trousers. Love to style them with a oversized wool sweater and a pointy pair of heels. Hotness!
Okey, so there is one super cool resort collection for 2013 I haven’t mentioned yet and that is Prada. I spotted this picture above of Magdalena Frackowiak, in the latest issue of Vanity Fair, and just saw it’s genious. I mean how cool isn’t that fur? And that bag?! Love the 70’s vibe and the sporty influences with the head band. This collection is awesome. Just as The Row Resort 2013, Prada choose to do a more ‘chilly’ collection, and by that I mean a much more dressed line with pieces that you actually can wear immediately. The resort lines always hits the stores by now, in December, and very often the collection contains pieces that are wearable for a sping and summer temperature. But Prada on the other hand, has choosen to create a much more dressed collection with the fur pieces and the woolen pants and knit. Double thumbs up!
The Stella McCartney leopard pieces from her Resort collection 2013 has just hit the stores. Go get the leopard here! Super cool stuff, really. But I think I would get tired of them immediatley, especially since the leopard prints pieces has already gotten so much publicity everywhere, mags, blogs, events…. Love the things though. But I would wanna wear it all together, the top with the jacket AND the trousers!
For spring 2013 I want to be Chloé-girl. How stylish and chic aren’t these pictures from their Resort 2013 line? First of all, the wide cream coloured perforated trousers with a wide loose-fitted top in same perforation – stunning. Second of all, the dresses! Wow, love the ’70 influence, the bare shoulders and the one shoulder-dress. And at last, the platform wooden sandals are to-die-for. Would love, love, love to get my hands on those. Super cool and super chic.
