The Resort lines for 2014 has been very strong and I have seen some amazing pieces and combinations. First of all, there were some fabulous looks from the Marc Jacobs Resort line of 2014 that I just want to copy straight away. I do not usually fall head over heels over his collection but in this Resort line there were some strong looks. Among others these three above with pieces in silk, satin and fur styled with underwear and my favorite accessory for the moment – flats. Max Mara is also a brand that delivered. In their Resort line I had two looks which were my favorites which was the head-to-toe black and the head-to-toe white suit. Kind of dig the idea of pairing a cap to the more dressed-up-look, as well as styling the fur scarf, underneath the suit jacket.
Another brand with a strong Resort collection was Adam Lippes. Simple and effortless looks with that gorgeous feminine touches, such as satin robes and kitten-heeled slip-in’s. But there were also pieces that embrace masculinity with wide trousers and silk pants with sporty influences. I love these combinations and I am absolutely crushing over those heels for the moment… Wouldn’t mind them both in black and white (!).
I am very impressed with Victoria Beckham’s Fall and Winter 2013 collection. There are some looks that are quite predictable and that I am not that fond of. But, there were some looks that were just stunning! I absolutely love that we have seen more and more designers working with pony-hair instead of fur or leather since it give pieces a very luxurious vibe. Like the college/bomber jacket above with the chocolate brown sleeves combined with glossy black pony hair, or the black dress with short sleeves styled over a basic skirt. I totally dig the styling of the models hair as well – side-parted uncombed hair in a pony tail with a light naturell make-up.
Simple, sexy and fierce looks at Altuzarra Fall 2013 show. Black and white monochrome styles domimated the collection and were accompanied by fur coats and fur accessories - like the fur mittens (that we also spotted at the Alexander Wang show). The buckle details on the boots and the ankle shoes, well the total look of the shoes reminds me of the Guess Marciano x Elin Kling collaboration. Take a look for yourself here. Anyway, it’s a great collection for this fall and I am excited to spot in in editorials and on fashionistas for this fall.
I might be the last one posting this ad…but I just have to. The Céline Spring 2013 ad campaign featuring Daria Webory photographed by Juergen Teller is perfection. In the past, Céline has created some truly inspiring and to-die-for ads and this one isn’t an exception. The idea of wearing and pairing slippers with a smoking hot suit is genious, and makes this ad one of the coolest this spring.
Speaking of Dior….wow! Love the black and white fur, just gorgeous to those white crepe pants and slickback hair. Reminds me of the Prada Resort 2013 collection (that was to-die-for).
I am very into the all white look (as you may know by know…). So I kind of did this copy-cat look from the Céline Spring 2013 collection. This is a look I would definitely go for New Years Eve. The suit jacket comes from Theyskens’ Theory, the pants are Gucci, the short belly top is the one I blogged about before from 3.1 Phillip Lim, the super duper nice shoulder bag comes from Givenchy and the pumps are Jimmy Choo. The accessories are Cornelia Webb (the thin silver necklace) and the beautiful loop earrings are Diane Kordas.
For New Years Eve it is very easy to get carried away and styled up to your teeth, well, just too pimped out. Sure, it’s the one holiday you can go all in and get away with it, but the most sophisticated way to dress is to style yourself in classic statement pieces. For instant, I love a cool tuxedo or a suit, preferably in black since it’s New Years Eve, but if you dare you can always go with white as well. The suit jacket above comes from Chloé RTW Fall 2012 and I wouldn’t mind wearing it to celebrate 2013. Another great piece is the black one shoulder dress or the off-the-shoulder dress, which is my favourite for the moment. I would go for something similar to this one underneath with beautiful details styled as simple as possible – with light make-up and flowing hair. The dress is also from Chloé Fall 2012.
