Phoebe Philo is absolutely one of the greatest designers of all time. Love her design for Chloé back in the days as well as Céline nowadays. Not only can she create beautiful looks, but she also dress impeccable cool with simple, classic and effortless looks. Always with the thought of less is more. There is an interview with Philo in the latest issue of Vogue US March 2013 and I have got to get that issue! On top of my to-do-list for tomorrow… Anyway, is not that difficult to copy her look. Invest in great basic and luxurious pieces with that not-so-obvious shape. For exampe, go for a pair of baggy leather trousers instead of the skinny ones. Underneath you’ll find a copy paste outfit: off-white wool coat from Céline, turtle-neck from Joseph, leather trousers from Elin Kling for Marciano, cabas shopping bag in python from Céline and sneakers from New Balance.
A while back I got myself a pair of N.B – yes, a pair of New Balance sneakers. They are so comfy it’s ridiculous. Anyway, I just spotted this editorial in the latest issue of Vogue UK November 2012. Joan Smalls is styled in a pair of N.B sneakers – and in that perfect everyday look – a great chunky knit paired with baggy leather trousers or a maskuline coat. Super nice! The editorial is photographed by Karim Sadli.
Pictures of the Maison Martin Margiela for H&M collection is out! Here above you find my absolute favourites. I wouldn’t mind get my hands on that hugely oversized peacock coat – exactly what I need in my closet right now. Or the black/navy suit jacket. Another great piece is the oversized white turtleneck jumper. I have to wait until 15th of November though.
A thin knitted turtle-neck and a long coat is a great combo this fall. Get inspired by this editorial above ‘Seasonal Phenomenon’ in the latest issue of Allure Magazine Russia. Three similiar styles but by mixing tone-in-tone colours and changing details you have got a classy and cool look. Since it is not that cold yet I would go for a thin knitted turtle-neck and layer it with a chunky coat instead.
