Knit-awesomeness

Stella McCartney A:W-14

Seriously crushing on Stella McCartney’s A/W-14 knitted creations, knits awesomeness I’d say, and if knitwear didn’t peak this season I’m pretty sure it’s gonna be one of  next falls major trends (Céline too!). For those of you talented and creative knitters out there, here are your next DIY projects!

The world is flat

Even the most persistent heel (mis) user have had to lay down their guard at this point, flats have come to stay in whatever shapes and forms. Personally I converted to the flat side post-pregnancy while pushing the baby buggy uncountable miles to get back into shape, and in my everyday juggling daily life climbing up and down stairs it made most sense to stick to it. Having that said a girl needs them gorgeous heels too of course, but you won’t see me grocery shopping in mine for now.

Abbey Lee + Saint Laurent

Saint Laurent Eyewear Campaign-Spring 2014-Abbey Lee Kershaw

One of my favourite models ever, Abbey Lee Kershaw, is the face of Saint Laurent’s eyewear campaign this spring. Rebelliously cool Abbey Lee and Hedi Slimane’s Saint Laurent, the perfect match if you ask me, more of Abbey Lee please!

Louis Vuitton A/W 2014

Louis Vuitton A:W-14Images style.com

If there was one collection I was really looking forward to this season it had to be this one, Nicholas Ghesquière’s first collection for Louis Vuitton. After being a fan of Ghesquière work over the years at Balenciaga, it’s great to see him putting his signature stamp on Louis Vuitton, whom I bet btw, will get a whole new audience and consumers onboard from now on, sorry Marc Jacobs.

When in Paris

Last weekend I stopped by Paris for shows and showrooms. And just like that, fashion months weekly travels (almost), inspiring collections, the constant rush and bad guilt, resee of old friends, way too heavily packed suitcases(!), new introductions and late night parties, are over for this time.

Now, it’s time to start enjoying spring that’s on our doorstep shall we, best time of the year is ahead, and I’m gonna soak it up to the max with mini me. Happy Wednesday Everyone!

Stripes

Marni belt

A new week and new desirable things have landed in stores. My pick of the otherwise grey and rainy day is this belt by Marni, perfect accessory this spring on everything from coats, jumpers and dresses. Yours for £90 and you’ll find it here.

Celine A/W 2014

Curious to see what next fall might look like, and by that I mean silhouettes, pieces and styling tip that perhaps at first glance don’t make you want to jump the roof, but when the time gets there, pretty much tick all the boxes you want to channel the next season. From my own experience Pheoebe Philo has this effect on people, sneaking into our unconsciousness, myself included.
For the A/W collection I’m personally very happy the vibrant coloured spray prints are gone (they were short lived anyway), and we’re back to the minimal and wearable Celine we all known. Key pieces are knitted tunics, flared legs, coats-coats-coats, feathers and earpieces, and that twisted hair bun is already on!

Repacking

Fashion months are hectic, and though I’ve shortened down my travels and missing out on NY this season, it feels like I’ve constantly been living in a suitcase since mid January. There are mixed reasons involved though, being a full time mum when I’m in the country do restrict your time for sure, but the thing is, I dread(!) unpacking almost as much as packing in the first place. As a result I’ve end up repacking and recycling a lot lately, like this warm knit I initially packed for Berlin, that has toured with me all through Europe, and I might give it a go in Paris too.
So tomorrow, I hope to see you there!

Yesterday H&M Studio, the new name for H&M’s seasonal collection of key pieces, presented it’s autumn 2014 show at Grand Palais in Paris. Loads of wearable, femasculine glam pieces on budget, that will be available in stores worldwide from September 4, yeah!

Last weekend I went for a quick trip to Milan to see Tod’s A/W-14 show, the second RTW show by the brand, which certainly has got new wind in the sails after Alessandra Facchinetti came on board as creative director last year. I really liked the first collection, but I loved this one even more which was quite dominated by leather pieces(!), femasculine tailoring, and drop dead gorgeous coats. See the whole collection for yourself on Tod’s website.

Spring wishes

Spring wishes

We’ve got a colourful spring ahead of us, but personally I’ll most likely stick to the softer, earthy colour scales no matter what trend forecasts are telling us. Hence these are some airy, springy picks I wouldn’t mind adding to my wardrobe. Perhaps time for a spring clean and book that ticket somewhere humid!

Something camel

After searching high and low for the perfect camel coat, which is to me elementary in every wardrobe, my choice landed on this classic specimen that I’ve been eyeing season after season, but somehow never ended up getting in the past. With the “invest-in-your-wardrobe-motto” in the back of my head I finally ended up justifying the deeper pocket dig. And in the knowing that this type of coat will be a very used timeless staple in the years ahead, instead of being shuffled aside and forgotten due to whatever direction trends are moving, it’s justified right there.

Being a black cat and all I can’t help loving an all black editorial from time to time. Some may say black looks don’t translate that well through images like power colours and prints, but if it comes in a gorgeous B&W package like this it certainly speaks to me, and yes, finding it inspiring too. Vogue Paris March 2014, Karlie Kloss photographed by David Sims, and styling by Emmanuelle Alt.
