On my mind for the moment: super stylish Marie-Amélie Sauvé who is former stylist for Balenciaga (worked close with Nicolas Ghesquière through his year at the house and was his longtime muse). Starting off her career at Vogue Paris as an intern in the eighties, Sauvé came back for a position at the magazine under the Carine Roitfeld-era, and continued on with American Vogue as member of team Anna Wintour. Her currently position is as W magazine’s senior fashion editor as well as freelance and always ends-up teaming with Ghesquière. Sauvé always look impeccable cool in in feminine, modern and trend-updated pieces mainly from Balenciaga and she has definitely a look to get inspired from. Below you can see some of her editorial work.
I spotted these two pictures on Stockholm Streetstyle the other day. Aren’t the looks just perfect for this in-between period that is right now? A great mix of materials, prints and colors. Love the navy turtle-neck to those stunning silk pants from Dries Van Noten (and the Proenza Schouler Lunch bag), as well as the burgundy top to that navy goat fur and grey stonewashed jeans.
The most simple looks and outfits are the ones which appeals me the most from picture at the Fashion Weeks. The queen of Parisian chic is doubtless Emmanuelle Alt (above) looking great in a shearling coat with fur and a braided black belt in the waist, and (underneath) in black wool coat with satin details. Right behind Emmanuelle Alt, there are two parisians who dress impeccable cool as well and that are of course Capucine Safyurtlu and Géraldine Saglio. I read an article in the Net-à-Porter online magazine, where I found this spot on quote: “If anyone started the hands-free trend, it was the French. Hands are for front-row invites and smokes.” Very true, do we ever see the Parisians with a bag?
Still going strong – the studded kitten heels from Valentino. The it-shoe is now available in not only nude, but black, pink, white and more. I totally dig them, as long as you go with a sophisticated and not to dressy outfit. They look amazing in flat sandals as well, and the ballerina model. You can get them here.
…is crocodile embossed bags for the moment. Especially bags from Givenchy. This clutch is one of the favourites, among the Pandora and Antigona bag. As in this picture, the croco-embossed clutch risen the whole outfit. The fuzzy knit and the black leather skirt creates a perfect combination with the bag – street style as it’s best. The idea of using different materials – but all in the same colour – makes this outfit perfect.
According to Style.com, Swedish Tilda Lindstam was the model with the flow this year. She walked 68 catwalk shows, including hard-to-land brands such as Calvin Klein, Céline and Givenchy. 20-year old Tilda was not only fully booked by the most well-know fashion houses in the business, her quirky, relaxed and grungy style was also captured by streetstyle photographers such as Tommy Ton. We will probably see a lot more of this Swedish beauty in 2013, can’t wait! I love her look and it’s always inspiring with new faces.
It has always been two persons I’ve been Google-ing when it comes to inspiration – during the time I’ve had the blog and waaay back as well. Of course Carine Roitfeld could be one of them (and trust me I do like her style) but actually not. Numero uno when it comes to fast inspo is the one and only Emmanuelle Alt (Editor in Chief Vogue Paris). She know how to dress impeccable cool, relaxed and with that french chic-ness that you wanna achieve. For an example, in the summer: a loose-fitted shirt, denim shirt or khaki-green cotton shirt, paired with a pair of low-waisted skinny jeans – styled with a statement belt (but very simple could be Balmain or Isabel Marant), a pair of delicate but yet very chic shoes (pointy pumps of any kind, Valentino, Isabel Marant, Dolce & Gabbana heeled mesh sandals…) and top the whole look of with her jewellery: a classic ‘Tank Francoise’ watch in gold or silver with a leather strap from the french brand Cartier, a statment ‘Collier de Chien’ bracelet from Hermès and her own personal bracelets and rings. In the winter: just add a modern and cool, yet classic, fur coat, woolen peacock coat or a perfect leather (Balenciaga, Balmain, Isabel Marant…) with a pair of heeled pointy ankle boots – and you have got the style.
Alt’s right hand is for sure stylist and editor Géraldine Saglio (as you see in the pictures as well…). Her style is very alike the Alt style – french, simple and cool. Classic staples are: wide-flared jeans, chunky knitwears, knee-high suede boots and statement jeans (Current Elliott, Isabel Marant…).
Lately there is one person I’ve been begin to ‘style-stalke’. She is on the ‘Alt-French-Vogue’ team and one of the editors at the magazine. She has also been called Alt’s Mini-Me and her name is Capucine Safyurtlu. Lately I’ve been spotting her next to Alt and Saglio always at every fashion week – and her style is super cool. A mix of the best from Emmanuelle Alt and Géraldine Saglio.
Capucine Safyurtlu styles classic and modern jackets, coats and furs with skinny jeans and – of course a belt – always with a naturell and fresh make-up and floating hair. Boyfriend-fitted jeans, loose t-shirts in the palette of grey, black and white and pointy pumps are staples in her wardrobe. Love it!
