I’ve been a huge fan of danish fine jewellery designer, Sophie Bille Brahe, ever since I came across her stunning pieces a few years back. For her A/W collection called Le Rêve, she has stepped up with her already popular pearl pieces, and the results are asymmetric sensual shapes inspired by the pearl itself. The best seller Elipse earpiece, is also renewed with grey pearls come fall, yum!

Latest on the collaboration side, hot multitasking Pharrell Williams, has paired up with Adidas Originals and designed a collection launching this summer which certainly will satisfy the cool kids. As if the relaunch of the Stan Smith’s earlier this years and prospects with other like Kanye West, Raf Simons and Rick Owens, haven’t created enough buzz about the brand already, you’re on Adidas!
Having your very own custom made monogrammed Prada heels, oh yes please! If you can dig a little deep in your pocket, and will be around London on the 26′th 27′th this week, then the Prada store on Sloane Street is the place to head to. You’ll be available to choose from 9 different models, varying heel heights, and a number of colours on fabrics and soles.
If there was one collection I was really looking forward to this season it had to be this one, Nicholas Ghesquière’s first collection for Louis Vuitton. After being a fan of Ghesquière work over the years at Balenciaga, it’s great to see him putting his signature stamp on Louis Vuitton, whom I bet btw, will get a whole new audience and consumers onboard from now on, sorry Marc Jacobs.
See the whole collection at style.com.
Curious to see what next fall might look like, and by that I mean silhouettes, pieces and styling tip that perhaps at first glance don’t make you want to jump the roof, but when the time gets there, pretty much tick all the boxes you want to channel the next season. From my own experience Pheoebe Philo has this effect on people, sneaking into our unconsciousness, myself included.
For the A/W collection I’m personally very happy the vibrant coloured spray prints are gone (they were short lived anyway), and we’re back to the minimal and wearable Celine we all known. Key pieces are knitted tunics, flared legs, coats-coats-coats, feathers and earpieces, and that twisted hair bun is already on!
Yesterday H&M Studio, the new name for H&M’s seasonal collection of key pieces, presented it’s autumn 2014 show at Grand Palais in Paris. Loads of wearable, femasculine glam pieces on budget, that will be available in stores worldwide from September 4, yeah!
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.
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.
