One of the hottest trends for this spring is the pyhton print. You’ll spot in on everything from bags to printed t-shirts, dresses and shirts. Balenciaga and Proenza Schouler has made some amazing bags in eclectic colours using the python leather. Christian Louboutin show off some amazing heels in snake leather as well as Valentino. I like the python print a lot! A great substitute to all the leopard animal print that we have seen for a while now. Above you’ll find the classic ‘Papier Tote’ bag from Balenciaga in the latest python leather for the spring 2013 collection.
So how many times haven’t you looked for a perfect basic tee? Or a tank that goes with just everything? I myself feels that I am constantly looking for those perfect basic – but never find them. Trust me, I’ve tried so many different brands but never found one to stick with. For an example, T by Alexander Wang – love the fit but lousy quality. Étoile Isabel Marant – great staples in linen jersey, but – bad quality there as well. Anyway, I saw these pieces from the L.A-based brand Kain and I really fell for the fit. Maybe I should ‘try’ some pieces from Kain – it could be the basics I am looking for. You can find Kain here!
The editorial ‘Sur la Route’ is styled by Géraldine Saglio for the Vogue Paris November issue 2012. The all americano vs feminine biker-style is captured by Lachlan Bailey and modelling by Anna Selezneva. Even if myself wouldn’t put on a pair of cowboy boots I love the simplicity of the Saglio styling – a great pair of jeans (skinny or boot-cut), a simple tee, a low-waisted belt and a great jacket – like the oversized suede jacket.
Three french fahsionistas that inspires! Barbara Martelo in a chic leather skirt styled with a black tee. Underneath, editor in Chief at Vogue Paris, Emmanuelle Alt in a Isabel Marant denim shirt styled with with skinny jeans and lace ankle heels. Above all, her accessories to this outfit are amazing! Cartier watch, Hermès Collier de Chien bracelet and a simple black/golden belt. And last, Geraldine Saglio in a beautiful dark green cable knitted jumper styled with a waist belt and simple black clutch. Perfection.
I’ve got some kind of YSL-maniac-fever or something and I find everything from YSL just a little bit too goregous for the moment! Jacket, trousers, tee, clutch and shoes above are all from Yves Saint Laurent. One of my friends just got the sneakers above, aren’t they just amazing? I want them as well… Stay tuned. Oh, and I would kill for that jacket btw. I’ve got a similiar that I bought last year from Chloé with golden chain-details, but mine is not even close in fabness comparing to this one.
Frankie Rayder in Jil Sander flor styled with Stella McCartney top and Isabel Marant sweatpants, Rochas killer heels matched with bling-bling shorts and baseball t-shirt, Acne leather star cap with Isabel Marant tank and shoes – what’s there not to like? I love everything about it. Well done, Creative Director Karen Langley. Editorial: ‘The L Train’, in Dazed & Confused Magazine issue April 2012 shot by Theo Wenner.
