I totally fell head over heels with this previous editorial, ‘New York’ from the latest Vogue Paris. That is why I had to throw some things together to re-create a mix of the looks in the editorial. I just love the idea of taking on the Grunge-style in a bit more sophisticated way. Like pairing slippers with a classy trench coat or an elegant suit jacket in satin. Or giving the pleated/checked pieces an lighter feeling, like the Dries Van Noten shirt and trousers in checked wowen silk. Mixing heavy materials like wool and denim, with luxurious ones like silk and mesh, creates a flawless and very wearable look. On top left you’ll find: trousers from Theory, silver metallic jacket from Rochas, crepe and silk-blended satin tuxedo jacket from Guilietta, suede waist-belt from Alaïa, slippers with fur details from Céline S/S13, socks from Falke and leopard gloves from Alaïa.
For Vogue Japan December 2012, Steven Pa has photographed Kasia Strauss for the editorial ‘A Big Time Story’. The feature, which is styled by Vanessa Traina, is full of statement pieces from the Fall and Winter 2012 collections, like the short tweed jacket from Stella McCartney, the famous pair of lace-up heels in white and navy from Balenciaga, the block-coloured Céline pullover and the red satin Haider Ackermann long-sleeved top. I like the editorial a lot, but I feel quite fed up at these pieces for the moment. Especially since we have seen them in almost every magazine during the fall. Looking forward to Resort and Spring 2013, and not one moment too late!
So I am not celebrating New Years here at home in the cold, that’s why I wouldn’t mind looking like these two wish outfits the coming days. First out (the one above) all white outfit: Balmain shirt with golden buttons, python clutch from The Row, gorgeous flared trousers from Stella McCartney, the ‘Tate’ suit jacket in white from Acne, studded silver sandals from Valentino, thin necklace with wishbone from Cornelia Webb and glasses from Balmain. Underneath, a bit more french and rock’n’roll with leather pants. shirt (again) from Balmain, watch from Cartier, sunglasses from Ray Ban, shoulder bag in dark grey from Céline and a pair of goregous lace-up boots from Balmain Spring 2013 collection. Just some classic and great pieces!
Silk pyjama shirt and shorts from the Marni for H&M collection. The collection will be released in selected H&M stores March 8th. I could totally imagine myself strolling around in this set with high heels and a gorgeous clutch. I really like the ‘pyjama’ trend, it’s so cool. However, the collection looked great, even though it’s not really my cup of tea.
