Greys

Shades of greys are dominating my wardrobe right now, something I never intentionally planned, but a fact (!) after a recent wardrobe cleanup. Unlike most other colours grey shades can be layered so well together without putting much thought into it, and that carefreeness fits perfectly with how I usually get dressed.

Wool trousers from Cos bought several seasons ago (similar styles here and here), wool sweater by Stella McCartney, coat by Ganni (also here and here), shoes by Chanel, Sella bag by Tod’s and Tag Heuer watch.

Celine Resort 2014

Images of Celine’s Resort 2014 collection are now official after being kept very well under lock for months. I personally have mixed feeling for Celine’s Spring collection,  but needless to say this is right up my alley by judging only from photos. No screamy colours nor prints in sight, Phoebe Philo, I want to wear every single piece and look, perfectness!

Flap Bag

Ok, I’m not the greatest fan of “in-your-face-logos”, neither have I ever been in love with “The Boy”. However, sometimes the unexpected do happen, and when I tried on this little hybrid youngster i soft pink (imagine!), I was tempted not to put him back on the shelf. Lord!

Pinstripe me

I’ve always had a soft spot for pinstripes and thanks to Stella McCartney and Vanessa Bruno there are plenty of pinstripes to chose from in stores this season, by the respective designers and on the high street. Though I personally never go for the copied-designer-pieces myself, I’m open to “inspired” trend pieces of good quality. These wool trousers by Mango  for instance, are personal budget favourites of mine right now, and I think I might wear them to pieces (hope not!) this winter.

The 15′th issue that was released last week is a tribute to some of the greatest actresses of our time and includes portraits, interviews, illustrations and tributes to the likes of Greta Garbo, Isabella Rosselini, Liv Ullman, Robin Wright, Jessica Lange, Vanessa Redgrave, Meryl Streep, and the list goes on.

Hello 90′s

The weeks are passing by in record speed these days, I’m feeling terrible late and behind with everything, and my dear blog and outfit posts have suffered big time. I guess, unless you’re constantly been tailed by a photographer who serve you shots on a plate I find it hard to keep the frequency up, sorry for that you lovely ones!

Anyway, as the minimalist I am I’m a true fan on the 90′s, and though the wave of teen spirit surely s dominating this season (Angela, you were my hero!), I would never turn my back to a clean double breasted blazer silhouette. Funnily enough I bumped into a “Celine-twin” this day back in Paris, pretty much dressed in the same way, and I didn’t know whether to cry or laugh, naturally I chose the latter, self distance gets you longer!

To celebrate the launch of the new boutique Creative Director Bruno Frisoni has created a limited edition version of the classic Virgule “comma heel’, a punk’ish tartan printed beauty, exclusively at Selfridges, yummy!

At fashion weeks you can be certain that some of your favourite in season pieces will be popping up on someone else’s shoulders, hands and feet, and if not it’s certainly the right place to be to pick up some inspiration or two.

- Elena Perminova, hand over those Repossi rings (here and here) please!
- I could definitely make room for this Prismick bag by Roger Vivier.
- The Proenza Schouler jacket and open toe mules, oh yes!!!
- I don’t think I ever could get tired of denim overalls.
- Chunky knit-perfection in what looks like Celine!
- This woman, this eagle silk shirt by Stella McCartney (here and here)
- I’m obsessed with marble prints and that this top by Balenciaga (similar here) included.
- And just like that I want to fray my jeans too and wouldn’t mind pairing them with  Nicholas Kirkwood beauties.

Happy Monday!

Ballerina’s

If you’ve  stopped by this blog before, then you probably know there’s no “sartorial extremism” ongoing on this space, and his week I’ve been pretty much back to the basics, jeans, shirt and blazer, perfect when on the run and dressy enough for meetings. The ballerinas, whom I for many years shied away from(!), have now become indispensable in my daily with work and a baby in my arms. I actually never leave the house these days without a pair either on my feet on in my bag. Speaking of bag, I’m officially in a relationship with this Tod’s shopper, the best perfect sized every-day-bag that ever happened to me, and I love the sharp, yet feminine shape of it.

Jeans by J Brand, shirt by MiH, wool blazer by Acne, ballerinas by Chloe, bag by Tod’s and bracelets by Monica Vinader and Cooee.

Good morning, it’s a beautiful sunny day with a tiny little tint of fall, and a perfect day of going pale. I’m heading out for meetings and wouldn’t mind jumping into this look as we speak, unfortunately there are no white denims in reachable sight, neither a light coloured coat when thinking of it, aah!

Something new

Something “old”, something new, I rarely borrow, but I love the colour blue, and I’m not referring to any marital status.

Mixing “old” favourites with new seasons additions is usually my way to go, it’s all about investing in quality pieces right?
New in in this outfit that I wore in Paris last week are these gorgeous shoes by Aquazzura that I’ve been eyeing for quite a while, and they do follow up with a funny story. On my first day parading these beauties in Paris I ran into the lovely designer himself, Edgardo Osorio, in the streets. I mean, what are the chances, perhaps shoe fairies do exist?

Fashion month is over and one of the highlights on my side was Tod’s first ever ready-to-wear-collection which include fantastic pieces that are certainly ready-to-be worn. Add laser cut pieces, in leather that looks like cotton and vice verse, cropped pants suits and shirt dresses, footwear with chunky golden buckles and long fringes, signed Alessandra Facchinetti for Tod’s, on your wish list come spring. The bags are still there but to me the clothes and shoes popped and looked even better up close than at the show. My favourite looks were the white off-shoulder dress and cropped-top-lacer cut-skirt, so in love!
