Leave it to Vogue Paris editorials to inspire with trends and pieces you never realised you actually wanted, wide legged avant garde belted trousers likes these for instance, not to mention yet new “Birkenstock-inspired-versions”, well, we can blame Phoebe Philo for the latter.
Dungarees and Air Max? Nope, I’m not preggy again (!!!), neither on my way to the gym, certainly not fit for the cocktail party, but suits me perfect when on the run. My little girl will hopefully (or perhaps not!) be walking in not too long and I’ll probably be very glad I’ve stocked up with comfy, runnable footwear when those days come along.
From a sartorial point of view I like the freshness, or confusion is more like it, a pair of sneakers adds to most outfits, especially when they come in happy colours like these or cool prints.
If you are craving a new biopic based on a fashion legend, then you’ll probably find this little beautiful sneak peek of the movie ‘Yves Saint Laurent’ just as teasing as me. The movie, directed by Jalil Lespert, has the backing of Pierre Berge, Yves partner in both life and business, and will release in theatres in January 2014.
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!
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!
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.
One of the magazines always glittering up my coffee table is Acne Paper. 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.
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!
Yesterday I joined Roger Vivier for the celebration of their brand new London boutique at Selfridges. 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.
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.
