I’m in Milan, yeah(!), and just about heading out in my heels, but if you didn’t know already and are interested, tune in to Prada.com and watch the SS13 live at 6PM CET, gotta run!
Usually the way I see it, it’s in the details and simplicity is the key, like a pair of rolled up sleeves and hems, perfectly demonstrated by Geraldine Saglio here in NY. Btw, I’m wondering where her heels are from, perfect hight and I really like the position of the heel, anyone who knows who they’re by?
Good morning folks! First I’d like to say a big thank you to all your best wishes I received the other day, it’s been overwhelming, you’re simply the best!!!
London Fashion Week has come to an end and and moved on to Milan where I’ll be joining tomorrow for a couple of days, days are moving so fast and I’m wondering what happened with September so far, it kind of escaped me. Over the weekend in London we got our first taste of fall, the leaves have gone more yellow, and the breeze a little chillier, but as long as it’s wonderful bright and sunny there’s nothing to complain about right, just throw on a warmer jacket or knitwear and you’re sorted, love this time of year!
Despite Jonny Johansson’s source of inspiration, Wrecking Ball, behind Acne’s SS13 collection presented yesterday, which included lots of “pretty and white”, it was the black leather and more tailored looks and pieces I liked the most. The collection as a whole has a mix of romantic western, music and street vibes, where the clash of romanticism and tough at times worked for me while others not. However, I can see girls like Hanne Gaby Odiele rocking the most extravagant maxi parachute skirts with rock printed tees come spring, while I’ll be eyeing the leather pieces, off shoulder top and striped suit. See the whole collection here.
As you may know I love my eyewear, either it’s sunnies or spectacles, and when I spotted beauty Jessica Hart in the streets of NY rocking her embellished mini, black boots, the cutest bun ever and THE SUNNIES(!), I knew I’d found them, my new sunnies I mean! After wearing my good old beloved Ray Ban’s almost apart I’ve finally come across something similar, just a little bit more “blingy”, but still has the right attitude. These beauties are by Tom Ford, named Henry and you’ll find them here.
Happy Sunday everyone!
Some of you might have been thinking I’ve had a very merry summer and dived into trays of sweets, well the summer was merry for sure but in a much healthier way. I’ve been trying to hide my little 4 months bump in loose tops and strategically placed tucks for a while now, but the other day in NY I was just fed up of hiding, I guess it was inevitable at this stage anyway.
So, there you got it, but a message to my dear loyal readers, don’t be afraid, this space is not gonna turn into a mummy-baby room, there will be a few more challenges ahead dress-wise I know, but I’ll continue my work just like before and hopefully do it even better.
And oh, say hello to my new arm candy, yes, the Book Bag by Proenza Schouler ended up being mine, and I love that I haven’t seen anyone else wearing it as it’s brand new model.
Silk dress by Topshop Boutique, parka by Isabel Marant, shoes by Dolce & Gabbana, sunnies by Tom Ford and bag by Proenza Schouler.
Of the shows presented in NY my usual favourite designers delivered great collections as expected, also look out for Louise Goldin and Victoria Beckham. Keywords that I picked up from NY for next spring are bermuda length shorts, skirts and dresses with slits, laser cuts, sporty vibes and knee-high cutout footwear. Now, lets see what Europe has to offer…..

This fall I’m gonna wear bare legs with boots as long as temperatures allows it, and I’m especially hooked on wrap skirts. I’ve already got these gorgeous glossy boots, one of my purchases in NY, but if I had all these goodies (in stores now), I’d wear this look any fall-like day now during fashion month. I would probably choose a size up in the knitwear for a more oversized and boxy look ala Proenza, so in love with their silhouette this fall.
Saturday in NY was super humid and I was so glad I’d slipped into loose pants and flat shoes when I stepped out. Initially I wanted to wear these new silk pants by Tibi with heeled sandals, but on the day it was simply not an option in the heat, and it was pure freedom laxing around in this outfit.
I wore silk-crepe pants and top by Tibi, shoes by Miu Miu, old bag Helmut Lang, bracelet Cooee and Ray Ban’s.
Now I’m back in a chilly grey London where Fashion Week continues tomorrow, what can I say, home sweet home…..
On Sunday the 16th at 3pm (GMT) the Topshop Unique Show SS13 will be screened live for everyone to watch, but this time around, like seen on Burberry’s for the last few seasons, you can shop looks straight from the catwalk which will be yours within short. Not only that but you can also customise your buys and change colour of certain items, shop the beauty products and download the music from iTunes. So in all a completely whole new digital (and dangerously tempting!) show-shopping experience, which suddenly turns your seat back home closer to the goodies than 1’st row.
One of the most beautiful collections shown in NY the last couple of days to me is by Altuzarra, enjoy the luxurious tailoring while I’m packing down lots of inspiration with me and head for the airport, bye bye to this fantastic city and see you’ll back in London!
On Sunday I took some time off and had a little shopping spree with two fab Norwegian girls, Elen and Marianne, dangerous encouraging shopping company!!! We all ended up with a new bag, Elen with her olive beauty by Givenchy and Marianne with her pink Madras bag by Miu Miu, which fitted their styles perfectly. I’ll show you my new baby another day, ciao!
On my first day over here in NY it was burning hot and super humid, temperatures that normally require a nearby beach and sunbed. Anyway with no beach in sight I jumped into something a little loose and relaxed. The shorts and blazer are by danish brand Hofmann Copenhagen’s SS13 collection, just love Hofmann’s stuff, playful, minimal and the fabrics are gorgeous, check it out here.
Oki, gotta run again folks, there’s a new day knocking on the door and so much more of NY to soak up before I head home tomorrow eve. Wishing you all a fabulous day!
