Hermès Spring 2014 Menswear-5As you may know, I kind of never write about menswear fashion. But, since the menswear collections are showing Spring 2014 at Paris Fashion Week for the moment, I couldn’t resist scrolling them through. One collection I just fell head over heel for is the Hermès SS14. I just love the way Véronique Nichanian worked with effortless cool styles and pieces – like boatneck t-shirts, scarfs and sandals. And, all the leather and suede, yeez. How beautiful isn’t the suede navy trench coat paired with dotted gabardine pants and loafers? Pyjama party deluxe.

Étoile FW13

Étoile Isabel Marant Fall Winter 2013 collection - ad campaign with Andreea Diaconu photo by Karim SadliTruly dig these first pictures of the Étoile Isabel Marant collection for fall 2013-14. I like the fact that Isabel Marant has gone back to her “roots” – creating pieces that are timeless and wardrobe staples, but of course with a great cut. I had a hard time to relate to the current collection (the Étoile S/S13 collection) with all the flower tunics and pants, owl-printed pullovers, pale colors (like yellow and baby blue) and star-printed jeans… That is why I totally embrace what I have seen this far. Super like on the peacoat, the thigh-high suede boots, the knit and the slight flared jeans with a simple, crisp white shirt. The ad campaign is featuring gorgeous Andreea Diaconu and is photographed by Karim Sadli.

The LV boots

lv The boots I am dreaming of for this fall comes from Louis Vuitton AW14. What’s not to like about Nicholas Ghesquère’s first collection for Louis Vuitton? I have a weak spot for the girly side in the collection along with the funky vibe all over the collection. Even though ready-to-wear pieces are just too cool (turtlenecks, flappy big collars on short jackets, a-line form skirts and dresses… the list goes on), I have set my mind into the accessories – or  to be more specific, the shoes. They are absolute perfection in my eyes; timeless, funky and yet so very chic. A thicker heel and round shape front makes these ankle boots wearable in so many ways. More or less, the ultimate ankle boots. Louis-Vuitton-boots

Wish List

Spring Wish List - Saint Laurent leaopard scarf, Alexander Wang tanks, Céline slipeprs, Dries Van Noten Perfume, Chanel roughe, Prada sunglasses, Gianvito Rossi sandalsHere 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.

The Horsebit loafer

Gucci loafers 60th anniversary 1953 loafer

One of the most iconic loafers of all time is the Gucci Horsebit loafer. This year the classic shoe turns 60 years, created in 1953. The loafers has been re-made in new colours and are available at both Net-à-Porter and My Theresa, in popping colors of suede and classic leather like black and white. Through the years the shoe has not only been loved and adored by fashion people but also royals and iconic legends.

Wangs first show

Balenciaga Fall 2013 wangNicolas Ghesquière was a genious who literally took Balenciaga to a whole new level in his fifteen years of service for the brand. I was skeptical at first to Wang, he is great of what he does at hos own self-titled brand, but I still found it very odd when they announced him as the creative director for the franch brand. Anyhow, I must say I am slightly wrong. I think this collection is surprisingly good. The Balenciaga silhouettes are still there, but in a different way. It’s elegant and raw, just like Wang’s own designs. I like the knotted silver bracelets and details on different pieces, the amazing deep green fur jacket and black suede boots. By the way, It’s going to be so exciting to see what kind of handbags and shoes Wang can design for Balenciaga that makes every fashionistas heart turnover (Ghesquière’s cash cow was the Motorcycle bag, and still is…).

Prada FW13

Prada Fall 2013 Hanne GabyI loved the slickback hair, the pale make-up with the cherry pink lipstick on the Prada Fall 2013 show yesterday. The looks were amazing – materials mixed in perfect combination. The mink fur coats and the croco jackets are the collections big winners, as well as the black leather boots and the sky-high wedges in cognac. Through-out the whole collection there was one detail we could spot on several styles, and that was the off-the shoulder design. Knitwear and cardigans were created to show off the shoulders, a beautiful details that I truly love, even more than a bare back or a deep v-neck. When it comes to the accessories, the bags are probably going to be among the hits for this fall. My favourite was the oversized cosmetic bag in a bowling-bag model that the models carried like a clutch. Miuccia Prada worked with both soft plain leather as well as croco in neutral colours like dark chocolate brown as well as popping red.

Fashion week look

Fashion Week savers NYFW 2013I would say that this look above is the fashion saviour look. A great warming and stylish coat with a cashmere jumper, a perfect pair of leather trousers and suede pumps will do the trick for a fashionista in New York bouncing between the fashion shows. The white wool and mohair coat comes from Céline, cashmere jumper and black suit jacket from Balmain, leather trousers/leggings from The Row, studded clutch from Valentino, suede pumps from Balmain, sunglasses from Ray Ban, chain bracelet from Hermès and watch from Cartier.

Alexander Wang Fall 2013

Alexander Wang Fall 2013 collectionWhat an amazig collection! The combination of materials are fantastic as well as the looks. Apparently the first model made an entrance to the very famous champion-song ‘Eye of The Tiger’, which is the theme song to Rocky III. It become more clear that the collection had influences from Wang watching boxing when the models wear styled in boxing-inspired fur mittens and mohair-knitted slicked hoodies. Wang used brushed mohair to give it the material a much more hairy quality, a long with embroidered leather appliqués on alpaca, and overstitched astrakhan with silk threads. The colours were black, grey hues and rust-orange – all gorgeous colours for the fall. I loved the shoes! Sleek satin-slingback heels, the suede heels as well as the ribbed mohair ‘stocking’ ones.
