Despite my love for a more tone down colour range and my current pale winter skin, I’m strongly feeling the need to dip into some colour very soon, so today’s picks are these fresh chunky neon jumpers by Kenzo that I would wear casual with jeans as soon as i can, hence one of them is already on it’s way to join my post-pregnancy wardrobe. If interested you’ll find them here, yours for £260.
Ok, here we go again, yet another Saint Laurent pick. Though I wasn’t such a fan about many of the runway looks this collection simply include so many beautiful separates from basics and tailored to shoes and accessories, that the more I see the more I wish for (me greedy? no!). So today’s little wishful thought is this gorgeous crepe dress with sheer sleeves, that I could easily make room for in my wardrobe until I’m fit for a dancefloor again, but sadly that’s a hard one to justify right now. (Yours for £1,521)
Off shoulders, yeah, like seen in Acne’s and Kenzo’s S/S 2013 and Dagmar’s A/W 2013 collection, definitely something I’m gonna sport when spring finally arrives! Btw, Swedish brand Dagmar presented their fall collection this week in Stockholm, really worth checking out, see the whole collection here.
Except for classic pointy pumps and sling backs (my favourites!) are sort of every-season-trends, also trending this spring are cut-outs and gladiator styles as seen at Altuzarra, Alexander Wang, Proenza Schouler and Isabel Marant. PVC details and clear surfaces on everything from soles, heels and straps as seen at Chanel, Valentino, Celine, Stella McCartney and Givenchy, are also here to stay this coming spring and summer.
Vogue Paris what takes you so long to hit counters in London, cause I can’t wait to dive into this February issue that looks fully packed of inspiration. Especially this editorial styled by Emmanuelle Alt modelled by Andrea Diaconu, that includes cool casual denim styling, trench coats, streets of NY, a great model, Dries, hairy Celine sandals (better get used to these I’m afraid), and stunning images by David Sims. Absolutely love this spread!
I’m celebrating this Friday morning with some of my favourite couture looks presented this week in Paris, dreamy graphics at Giambattista Valli, sharp romanticism at Christian Dior, and beautiful whites at Valentino. Though couture might feel lightyears away for most people beautiful dreams and inspiration are both for free. On another note I’m loving that some couture has taken a smarter and cleaner path, though the simplicity I wouldn’t underestimate the handcrafts, it’s still there for sure.
I’m a jeans-shirt-girl at heart and I’m so missing my simple jeans looks, feels like ages ago!!! Well, I assure you I’ll jumping into a pair of perfect skinnies, a slightly unbuttoned silk blouse with rolled up sleeves, a little tuck, and killer heels as soon as I can, and wouldn’t mind any of these pieces to be included. With a long black coat over the shoulders or a duvet bomber I would have been ready to join fashion-month-circus! Btw, loving the silk shirt by H&M (£39.99) so much that I’ll probably get it now and save it for later.
I fell in love with Dries Van Noten’s spring collection as soon as I laid my eyes on it in September, and finally some of the gorgeous pieces, like these highly coveted cotton checked shirts have hit stores. Though we’ve been bombarded with similar styles and copies on the highstreet for months it hasn’t affected my desire to wear checked this spring. Except for the obvious pairing with denim I might also do it the “Dries-way” with florals and silks, and any of these two would be so welcomed by me! Orange shirt £221 and burgundy shirt £455.
Many of the pre-fall collections that usually tend to get me all wow’ing and so did very little for me this time around. Having that said, as to no surprise (to myself at least), like Phoebe Philo, Stella McCartney always delivers and these are my favourites looks, androgynous classic pieces with maxi proportions signed either of these two ladies can hardly go wrong, can they……

Well isn’t there just something with a perfectly cut suit or a tailored look, whether on a man or woman. And ADR, don’t you totally rock that Saint Laurent look!
