Here’s how I would love to look like today! ‘Kenta’ twill-satin top in crème from The Row (just new in at Net-à-Porter.com), black stretch-crepe trousers from Oscar de La Renta, gorgeous silk-satin headband from Jennifer Behr (on my must-have list for the moment…reminds me of the Céline SS13 knot for this season), Prada Teddy Aviator sunglasses in gold, gold watch with black leather band from Isabel Marant, shopper in python and calf-skin from Céline and a pair of super cool black leather slip-on sneakers from Givenchy (pre-fall 2013 collection).
Above I have gathered some black pieces that can be your basic essentials in your spring closet. I love black and can’t get enough of it and find it so beautiful to wear not only in the fall and winter season but also when the summer is coming. From the top left: jersey dress from Rick Owens Lilies (here), sheer tank from Acne Studios, top from The Row with deep back, long sleeve washed out linen top from Étoile Isabel Marant, leather shorts from Isabel Marant, pleated skirt from The Row, satin belt from Lanvin from Net-a-Porter, leather sneakers from Nike (here), sunglasses from Ray Ban, black leather bucket bag from Balenciaga (love this one, you can find it here), black leather sandals from Marni at Farfetch.com and ‘Twin Mini Messenger’ shoulder bag from The Row that you can find here.
Today I wouldn’t mind looking like this – a very casual cool and effortless look. Just what I like. Jersey top from OAK, wide-leg trousers from Emilio Pucci, quilted Pindot blazer from Raquel Allegra, Superga sneakers in black cashmere from the collaboration with The Row (so cool, love the fact that they are in cashmere), chevron snake amure ring in gold from Saint Laurent Paris, oracle gold-tone cuff from Lanvin, yellow gold watch with leather strap from Isabel Marant and the A5 Papier tote in black from Balenciaga.
Every time on this specific period of the year I start to crave sunglasses. Along comes the problem of which ones to get (huge problem right…). Even though I think I have every shape – wayfarer, aviators, cat-eye, squared…and so on, I always want one more pair. For this season I have no idea of what I am looking for. I have been eyeing a pair from Céline but I haven’t found the right model. Underneath I have gathered some cool ones. From the top: Céline Audrey sunglasses in olive and nude, red-tortoise ones from The Row x Linda Farrow, tortoise sunglasses with green shades from The Row, gold asymmetric ones and tortoise ones (both) from Miu Miu, acetate frames from J.Crew’s collaboration with Cutler & Gross and aviator shades from Prada.
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).
Ashley and Mary-Kate Olsen are, as you know, the creators behind the brand The Row. For this show the sisters rented an empty Upper East Side Town house for showing their collection for friends and press. The models walked through an amazing staircase and into different rooms showing off the styles. As always, the collection is impeccable sophisticated. The models wore tax heeled mules in red and black, styled with quite dressed evening looks such as satin dresses, suit trousers, tailored coat and jackets. Throughout the whole collection we could see some Asian and Oriental cuts, like the satin and embroidered coat, the high-waisted skirt and the deep v-necked dresses. It is an amazing collection from the sisters as always, and after the show Mary-Kate said “Without it being easy, we wanted it to be easy” which pretty much sums up this gorgeous fall collection.
