Barefoot attitude

Chloé Resort 2014 yellow trench coatOkey, I just love this look above from the Chloé Resort 2014 line, is absolutely amazing! As I mentioned before, yellow is the color for Spring 2014. The entire collection is beautiful, I have got tons of looks on my mind for the spring – like the pin striped denim trench coat paired with the denim boyfriend jeans, the ankle long striped skirt styled with a simple white shirt, and the wide trousers (!) both in white and navy paired with flats. Oh, my the flats are gorgeous, especially the slippers… The creative director for Chloé, Clare Waight Keller, stated that the trousers in this collection gives you room for her “barefoot attitude” – a statement I totally fell for. Waight Keller wanted the proportions to be just right, and sandals, as well as slippers, feels super hot to pair to both a chill and more dressed-up looks for just that perfect relaxed proportions.

My favorite looks

The Row Resort 2014-9

I just had to post my favorite looks from The Row Resort 2014 collection, which are quite a few. As you know by now, I am a huge fan of theirs (and their personal styles as well). As always The Row delivers. I love the hues and the colors, canvas-beigen, olive green, navy, light grey, and the up and coming color (that not only The Row showed, but also Stella McCartney and Louis Vuitton) — light yellow. For this Resort line, Ashley and Mary-Kate Olsen said they were looking at uniforms — of sailors, of Japanese workers, of school children — for ideas this season. The thing about the Olsen twins is that they have this amazing eye for fabrics. They make pieces out of the best of the best materials and combine these in beautiful set-ups, like satin and denim, cashmere and canvas. As we can see they stay put to what they love and believe in. For an example they have always highlighted the flats, ever since The Row’s very beginning. And of course, it is implemented in this collection, as well as the semi-long and ankle-long skirts. Well, it is true love as always.

Hermès

Hermès Spring 2013 RTW leather jacketThere are some great pieces in the Hermès S/S13 collection. Among many I have picked out some favorites. The oversized leather jacket in lamb skin are one of them as well as the shorts in crocodile chiffre, shaded jade or cobalt. Hermès creative director Christophe Lemaire was inspired by a luxurious traveller on a journey in the East, which we could spot on the runway with the models carrying leather backpacks over their sheer dresses as well as the mosaic prints in different pieces.

The Céline dress

Numéro Magazine April 2013 Aymeline Valade by Richard BushI have so been curious to see when this amazing satin dress from Céline S/S13 would be featured in an editorial. In Numéro Magazine issue April 2013 model Aymeline Valade is styled in this beauty (the white satin on with black mesh details), along with other cool pieces from Nicolas Ghesquière for Balenciaga, Ricardo Tisci for Givenchy, Louis Vuitton, Dior and Fendi, all styled by Franck Benhamou. I love have the looks turned quite raw with just adding the boots by Givenchy. Richard Bush is the photographer for this editorial.

Celebrating Spring

Vogue Netherlands April 2013 Milou van Groesen white jeansIn the April issue of Vogue Netherlands, Milou van Groesen is not only featured on the cover, but also in a story inside. The editorial ‘Plastic Touch’ is, according to the magazine, a celebration to the Spring. I am in love with the picture above, the white jeans, the mens watch that are a bit too loose and the black top, with a very deep cleavage. The messy hair and the colors in this editorial (shot in the evening) makes my cravings for a bit warmer temperatures even bigger.

Vans x Kenzo

Kenzo x Vans shoes collaboration LeopardI think you all remembered this hyped collaboration from last year? The Vans x Kenzo fourth edition of the signature shoe was unveiled during Paris Fashion Week FW13 and this time the two brands has worked with leopard print. The Clouded Leopard capsule collection is created by design directors Humberto Leon and Carol Lim at Kenzo and the print was shaped during a trek in the Thai Jungle. The sneaker is available in ocher, orange, green, khaki and dark blue (and in the model Era) from March 15. A comfy and perfect everyday sneaker to lighten up your shoe wardrobe.

Céline 2013

Céline Spring Summer 2013 leather clutchI picked out some of my favourites bags from the Céline Spring and Summer leather goods collection of 2013. Even though I am a tiny bit tired of some models, I totally dig the new clutches and the beautiful colours. As I mentioned before, light yellow is an huge trend for spring as well as the baby blue colours and hues. The one that really rocks this collection is the black fold-over shoulder bag with gold details.

Yellow

Three is a trend - Proenza Schouler PS1 bag, Valentino Vavavoom bag and Céline Box bag in yellowFor Spring 2013 there is one colour that is one of the hottest among accessories, and that is yellow. I have a very hard time to like the brash hues of yellow, but this one above, the more softer and lighter version is actually quite cool. From the top: Céline Box bag in python leather, the Vavavoom bag from Valentino and the PS1 from Proenza Schouler.

Yellow

Two AMAZING jackets for fall are these two above! The yellow neon jacket in shearling are to-die-for and comes from Acne. It’s their ‘Rita Biker’ jacket which has become an standard and returning piece in their fall and winter collection. And always very popular! This time Acne nailed it with the colour. Underneath you see a beautiful rabbit jacket from Philosophy di Alberta Ferretti. Goregous!
