For this summer, Louis Vuitton will release a new handbag model, which will be available in selected LV-boutiques around the world. The new model called W is created from the skin of different textures and colors with the shape that resembles the letter. Some of the bags variations are decorated canvas Monogram, velvety and embroidery on leather, inspired by the art of tapestry. The lining of the bag is made of fine suede. Inside the W, which strongly holds form, despite the softness of the material. Above you can see the burgundy one, without Monogram (the ones with it are pretty cool as well). The shape and size of the W bag makes it a great travel companion, and if I had to board somewhere I would definitely do it chic with the following wish-things: Rick Owens ’Crater’ python jacket, Acne striped ‘Maurice’ skirt, Vanessa Bruno ribbed racer-back tank, Lindsey Adelman Rib-necklace, Roger Vivier Prismick shoulder bag, Nicholas Kirkwood mesh and suede slingbacks, Alaïa burgundy studded suede sandals, Byredo perfume travel case and a couple of magazines from Fantastic Man and The Gentlewoman, that you can find here.
I want to update my closet for spring with white, gold and luxurious materials. The combination of suede, cashmere and silk are to-die-for, especially in light hues such as egg-shell white, light grey and beige. Above I have gathered some pieces that I wouldn’t mind moving into my closet immediately. From the top left: cashmere pullover from Jardin des Orangers, suede laced-up boots from Salvatore Ferragamo Fall 2013, 18 carat gold and diamond earrings from Sophie Bille Brahe, ‘Paris Eau de Perfum’ from Balenciaga, white perforated stretch skirt from Azzedine Alaïa, mirrored aviator sunglasses from Linda Farrow, beautiful eggshell white chiffon and silk dress from L’Wren Scott and egg-shell white clutch from Valentino.
With influences from the previous post and editorial from the May issue of Vogue Paris, I wouldn’t mind look like this today – a sporty look wearable for day and night – with just adding a pair of heels. From the top left: Alexander Wang reptile silk infusion crop top in white, pleated pinstripe skirt from Nicolas Ghesquière for Balenciaga S/S13, grey suede baseball jacket from Isabel Marant, blister leather baseball hat from DRKSHDW by Rick Owens, black sneakers from Balenciaga, white and black crepe-twill and fishline top from Alexander Wang, both necklace and two-finger ring in gold from Maison Martin Margiela and leather trunk with gold zip from Saint Laurent Paris.
Here 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.
Wouldn’t mind these pieces in my closet for the summer; suede bomber jacket, black leather shorts and grey/beige slouchy suede boots from Isabel Marant, white t-shirt from T by Alexander Wang, PS1 medium suede satchel in tobacco from Proenza Schouler (on my list!), gold aviators from Prada and the limited edition (of 50 pieces) gold watch with black leather strap from Isabel Marant.
I just love these beautiful suede heels from Aquazzura shoes So simple but yet gorgeous. I have had a hard to time to find where you can get them, but I found that ShopBop has them. This sleek model above is calles ‘Sexy Thing’ and are truly living up to it’s name. The cutout is just perfect, showing of the parts of the feet that looks the best. This model is available in nude and black suede, but for this season Aquazurra has also done a model with python – as a detail on the sole and heel.
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.
Here are some stuff on my mind for the moment: beautiful suede ankle boots from Saint Laurent, python ‘Box’ bag from Céline, box tank top from 3.1 Phillip Lim, fur turtle-neck from The Row, beautiful suede heels from Alaïa, tortoise and leather sunglasses from Linda Farrow for the Row and printed cotton shirt from Burberry Prorsum (menswear collection and you can find this one here).
According to many of the Balenciaga-fans, Nicolas Ghesquière was a genious taking Balenciaga to a whole new level in his fifteen years of service for the brand. I was skeptical at first to Wang, he is amazingly good of what he does but I still found it very odd when they announced him as the creative director for the franch brand. Anyhow, I must say I have been all wrong. I think this collection is surprisingly good. The Balenciaga silhouettes are still there, but in a slight 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 cw was the Motorcycle bag, and still is…).
