Diamond crusted gold cuff and ring from Saint Laurent. I am very much into bling for the moment and I find it beautiful to just have it as simple as possible, as always… Saint Laurent have done it as well as Gaia Repossi for her acclaimed and self-titled jewelry line. I could wear anything from her, all the Repossi pieces are truly amazing and unique of it’s kind.
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.
As I mentioned in the previous post, I just had to show you some of the amazing pieces from Gaia Repossi’s line. All of them are favorites, of course… But if I had to choose one particular pieces I must say I am in love with the ‘Berber’ earring – both in 18 karat rosé-gold and white gold (the pieces in with the four rings in the middle of the pic). You can find the jewelry at Net-à-Porter, Barneys and Montaigne Market.
For the moment I have got black on my mind and I wouldn’t mind these beautiful pieces in my wardrobe! From the top left: black leather loafers from Hermès, leather bomber jacket from Filippa K S/S13 as well as leather skirt from Filippa K S/S13, beautiful satin top from Lanvin, embellished boots from the Saint Laurent Fall and Winter 2013 collection, stiletto sandal in snake from Jimmy Choo (I love these!), slip-in sandals in black leather with gold details from Ancient Greek Sandals, canvas and leather bag model ‘1968’ from Balenciaga and a pair of aviators ‘Luxe Mirrored Sunglasses’ from Linda Farrow.
For the moment it’s snowing outside. My mind is totally somewhere else, not even close at bringing back boots, furs and big jackets. This time last year it was actually pretty sweet outside. Thank god that I have plans coming up. Anyway, since I just want to think about spring I am thinking about the trends for this spring. As I mentioned before, there is a lot of python coming up. Proenza Schouler and Valentino showed a lot of leather goods as well as shoes on the runway in python leather and print. Above I just put together some cool stuff that are available in store, or pretty soon at least. Pink-orange hued python PS1 and clutch from Proenza Schouler (as well as the neutral bag underneath), t-shirt from Equipment (how cool), kitten heels and clutch from Valentino, blue iPad case from Dolce & Gabbana and super sweet sandals from All Tomorrow’s Parties – that you can find online right here.
I am longing for warmer weather and to be able to walk around in flats with bare feet, skirts and sheer blouses. For the moment I have got patterns and animal prints on my mind. Animal print like python and leopard are beautiful and always a winning concept. But something we will see more of, especially for the fall, is camouflage. Valentino has created a super cool mini collection with military camouflage for late spring both in printed scarfs, textiles and shoes (love the sneakers) as well as created camouflage patterns from Swarovski stones. Above you’ll see the flats and the studded Va Va Voom bag from Valentino, along with leopard clutch from Dries Van Noten, python skirt from J.Crew, silk blouse from Dries Van Noten and tortoise sunnies from the Alexander Wang collaboration with Linda Farrow.
Some accessories that I crave for the moment: Laced-up leather heels from Salvatore Ferragamo (love these), pyhton snake handbag from The Row (always on my wish list), tassled earrings from Lanvin and pink sunglasses from Oliver Peoples collab with Maison Kitsune.
