Isabel Marant and Oliver Peoples are launching a collection of sunglasses now in February, and the two models, Matt and Daria has the just the right amount of bohemian 70′s flare to join me on my next holiday, whenever that is…
Victoria Beckham and team have certainly moved on from figure-hold-in-dresses, and has delivered one of my favourite collections from NYFW so far. Season after season the direction has slowly moved towards the effortless fe-masculine Phoebe Philo-way with a tiny touch of Dries, and this crossing is finding it’s way right up to my street, yum!
After being on the road the whole week for shows in Stockholm and Copenhagen, I’m finally back in a much warmer London with lots of impressions in my luggage(s), so please forgive me for the lack of updates on this space, but it will now turn for sure.
Amongst the shows I attended in (freezing cold!) Stockholm was the H&M global Design Award where the crowned winner turned out to be Eddy Anemian. The French designer who studies at La Cambre in Brussels, presented his 4′th year collection, inspired by Tilda Swinton in the movie I Am Love (Love!) and the French painter Ingres. Except from receiving a cash prize of 50,000 euros, H&M will develop pieces from the collection to be sold at selected H&M stores this fall.
I’ve paired up with my long time favourite, Monica Vinader again, for another shopping event with a Valentines twist in the new London boutique in Canary Wharf on the 5′th of February. For those of you dear readers far away from London city that won’t be able to make it to the store, you’ll be able to redeem a 20% discount code online (MVHINT20) on the day between 5-8pm GMT.
I truly hope to see as many of you as possible to join us for fun, chats, champagne and shopping on the day, and don’t forget to enter the competition below with international entrance accepted off course.
Until then, tweet and spread the word, and this is your chance to lay your hands on those pretty little diamonds for a little less.
Last week I had the pleasure to go on a quick trip to BFW to see Lala Berlin‘s A/W 14 show which was right up my alley. Urban street wear, knits and prints in gorgeous fabrics with the right amount of attitude and the styling was nailed to a tee!
PS: The coat and the perfect pair of loose white leather pants I wore on the day were Lala Berlin SS14.
Céline’s SS14 campaign is out again fronted by Phoebe Philo’s number one girl (and lookalike!), Daria Werbowy. The visuals of the vibrant new collection are photographed by Juergen Teller (another side-kick apparently), and new model confirmed onboard is Julia Nobis, but it looks like there’s a third as well (?). So folks, better get used to these prints, they will pop up everywhere!
These days when trainers and sporty’ish has never been more chic, designer collaborations with good old sportswear brands are inevitable. Latest collaboration on the radar is Riccardo Tisci for Nike that will bear the logo NIKE RT, and will arrive in stores and on Nike.com this spring.
One styling detail that I’m specially fond of this spring is the belted waist that popped up on more than one runway this season. Whether you like sporting thin or wider versions, it’s a great way to update or restyle any dress, shirt or jumper, and I’m sure we all have loads of them in a drawer somewhere, I’m on it searching for mine!
Phoebe Philo at Céline
Our global girl crush and most copied woman in the fashion sphere, Phoebe Philo creative director at Céline, has been awarded an OBE in a New Year’s Honours list, making her one of tree people in the fashion industry to be honoured on the annual register.
Philo is joined by legendary make-up artist Pat McGrath and Central Saint Martins tutor and textile designer Natalie Gibson, both of whom recieve an MBE.
You might have seen on this space I’ve been a fan of Monica Vinader’s jewellery for quite a while. One of the main features of the brand, is the “stacking-principle”, which works so well for both bracelets or rings, that can be mixed together making it more personal. Monicavinader.com recently launched a fun ring stacker tool, which allows you to click, drag and rotate, and put together all sorts of combinations, clever indeed!
