Suede is one of the key words this season, along with denim of course, and together they are the perfect combo. Here are some of my favourite suede pieces in stores right now that I wouldn’t mind laying my hands and feet on, yum!
Not that I’m lacking sense of humour or take fashion too serious, in fact rather the opposite, but I’ve never felt the urge expressing it through my own personal style. However exceptions can be made, and if I wanted to splurge on something rather wild that wouldn’t tick any of my normally sensible boxes(!), it would be the new seasons micro monster baguette by Fendi.
Perhaps I could justify that my little girl would borrow it? The little monsters come in green, yellow and coral, yours for £930 and can be pre-ordered here.
Who doesn’t love a pair of “mum-jeans”, and I dare to say that none does it better than good old Levi’s. The iconic 501 will now come with a few adjustments, straighter in the waist, smaller in the seat and a more tapered fit, which to me sounds even better. You’ll find the new capsule collection in 3 different washes exclusively at Net-a-Porter on 2’nd of March, add that to your calendar!
For Nicolas Ghesquière’s second campaign for Louis Vuitton he has yet again brought along the the legendary photographers Annie Leibovits, Juergen Teller and Bruce Weber to illustrate each artists vision of the SS15 collection, brand and story.
“Series 2” as a follow up on last year’s “Series 1” is nothing but beautiful, and sometimes a beautifully captured video accompanied with the right tones bring a vision more to life than anything. Enjoy my favourite video this season by Bruce Weber fronted by Louis Vuitton’s new heroine, Jennifer Connelly.
You’ve probably seen it many times already this week, but great things get away with being repeated. First looks of Givenchy’s SS15 ad faced by Julia Roberts is definitely an unexpected move, but oh so brilliant. Stripped down, smart, beautiful, pure, honest and strong, now this speaks…
What do you treat the man or lovely boys around you who has it all? Either he’s fashion minded or not, globally most men appreciate a good fit.
Sometimes the best ideas are the simple ones, and online platform ‘Son of a Tailor’ has certainly hit the nail on the head. The tailored T-shirt comes in high quality fabrics, in various colours, round-neck, v-neck, fitted to your measurements, and even initials can be added. The perfect present for the men around you arrives in a sleek minimal gift card box including a tailor measurement tape and instructions, worldwide shipping, yours for pocket friendly €53 and you can order it here in time for Christmas.
As a juxtaposition to all the sparkling Victoria Secret wings from yesterday’s London spectacle that will be all over the place from today and 1 week forward, I want to give a shout out that my own forever girl crush and uber cool woman, on and off screen, Tilda Swinton, has been named US GQ’s 2014 Woman of the Year. Read the fascinating interview here.
It’s Black Friday!!!
Celebrating a season of sales shopping and great retail offers with some of my favourite picks out there. My best sales shopping tip is to invest in classic timeless high quality pieces that could end up being staples in your wardrobe for seasons ahead, and avoid the trap of too-on-trend-at-the-moment pieces, though it can be very tempting. Think ahead and keep next season in mind, happy shopping gals!

Vogue US December issue provides the perfect inspiration for the 70’s flare in the air perfected on Natalia Vodianova styled by Grace Coddington. Except for being totally sold on high waisted suede A-line skirts I’m personally so in the mood for a longer or short suede coat belted in the waist, the hunt is on!
It’s the season for Christmas drinks and parties and a personal favourite of mine that works for any occasion is the jumpsuit. Bless the LBD, but I find a wrap jumpsuit with a little 70’s flare a tad more chic, and eliminates skin baring in chilly receptions. You’ll find plenty of options out there right now, but my personal favourite is this creation by Diane Von Furstenberg, the all-round winner and officially added to my wish list, along with these other new picks in stores, yum!
I’m not a beauty junkie, and don’t try on new products very often, but this organic beauty line based on Argan Oil by Norwegian Alexander Sprekenhus are new favourites of mine and deserves a shout out. Not only will I recommend them as brilliant products that really give your hair a hydrating boost, they also tick the boxes regarding design and price level too, thumbs up!
Hydrating Shampoo (£22), Hydrating Mask (£30), Hair Styling Elixir (£28).
Phoebe Philo continues what she does the best, another pre-collection that feels fresh, new, but still has what has become so very Celine. The french house have lately kept their pre-collections under seal, and the image release of this highly anticipated Resort 2015 collection coincides with the release of the ads fronted by what has become Celine in house model Daria Werbowy. Feeling inspired anyone, I surely do.
And the award for the best looking electric toothbrush in town hereby goes to Foreo! I never thought I would add the latter to my wish list but here we go. This stylish toothbrush comes in a travel friendly mini version too in a range of colours, starting from £89-£149 and you’ll find them all here.
