These days when trainers and sporty’ish has never been more chic, designer collaborations with good old sportswear brands are inevitable. Latest collaboration on the radar is Riccardo Tisci for Nike that will bear the logo NIKE RT, and will arrive in stores and on Nike.com this spring.
One styling detail that I’m specially fond of this spring is the belted waist that popped up on more than one runway this season. Whether you like sporting thin or wider versions, it’s a great way to update or restyle any dress, shirt or jumper, and I’m sure we all have loads of them in a drawer somewhere, I’m on it searching for mine!
If the knee or mid lengths didn’t fully bloom earlier this winter I do believe they will succeed this coming spring, and the more asymmetric, pleated, fringed and unfinished endings the better. These are details that I personally like myself, and I will for sure incorporate a few additions to my wardrobe come spring, paired with relaxed pieces, first thing in, this skirt by Isabel Marant Etoile, let the new lengths begin for real!
A new year, new shoes right, and since many of us already have stocked up with sneakers and flats the past year its only fair to add some (comfortable or uncomfortable!) heights to the shoe closet. In any case these mules by Alexander Wang would be very welcomed in mine, yours for a juicy £488 and you can find them here.
Happy New Year Everyone, I hope you’ve all been good!!!
After a few weeks half in coma and just relaxing for once(!), I’m back on London’s solid grounds with luggage of expectations, plans and resolutions for the new year ahead.
Sartorial-wise I wish we could kick off with brand new spring wardrobes, but sporting Celine sandals and slouchy trousers don’t really go along with wintery storms nor wet, chilly, British weather, where these days practical cannot be ignored.
Speaking of practical, lately I find these boots by Stuart Weitzman the perfect company on the go, and they are probably the cleverest pair of boots I’ve ever had when it comes to travelling as they wrap together easily without taking up any space.
Phoebe Philo at Céline
Our global girl crush and most copied woman in the fashion sphere, Phoebe Philo creative director at Céline, has been awarded an OBE in a New Year’s Honours list, making her one of tree people in the fashion industry to be honoured on the annual register.
Philo is joined by legendary make-up artist Pat McGrath and Central Saint Martins tutor and textile designer Natalie Gibson, both of whom recieve an MBE.
I wish I could say I’ve been sliding around in silky dresses all through this holiday, but truth is it doesn’t really apply in Norwegian “hytte-life”. Except from lounging in pyjamas (a lot!), I’ve sworn to my favourite jeans pair, a cashmere knit and sneakers.
For directional designers like Miuccia Prada and Phoebe Philo, it’s mostly about bold graphic art prints the coming season. If you haven’t been able to embrace (still not convinced?) the colourful wave yet, you better either do so or shy away from the 30 first ad pages in magazines this spring, first ad out is Steven Meisel for Prada, stay tuned!
Right now I find myself in north of Norway celebrating the holidays with my family in an old traditional house on the countryside. Needless to say it’s a very special one being a first time mum and all, and suddenly everyones attention is drawn to this little person, Christmas magic at it’s best. Wishing you all my dearest readers wonderful magic in your lives too and the most Merrier Christmas!
Love from us
Fabulous Kate Moss turns 40 in January which has inspired journalist turned artist, Russel Marshall, to host an exhibition in her honour that will include 10 iconic images available to buy on scene.
“Celebrity” can be short-lived these days” says Marshall, “but not so with Kate. While other celebs have come and gone… Kate has stayed. Kate’s not just a survivor and she’s not hanging on to fame. She grows bigger, brighter and more iconic each year.”
Kate Moss: 40 – A Retrospective, will be held at London’s Imitate Modern Gallery from January 17 until February 15, 2014.
As a contrast to my “Manish”-post the other day I felt like letting my girly side come out and play, at least to some extend. Cute little dresses worn with knitted cards or coats were the key looks strutting down Saint Laurent’s A/W runway and it’s one of the few show-looks that are perfect for “real life”, and those parties coming up this seasons.
