Resort 2015 season has kicked off in NY and I’m feeling inspired and dreaming about these fantastic classy, black, sleek and draped looks by Raf Simmons for Dior, note the shoes, yum!
I never say never, having that said, never did I think something polka dotted would find it’s way into my wardrobe either, and now it has, in the shape of a silk shirt with a bow(!). Polka dots really never was my thing, always found it quite repellent, but luckily things have the ability to grow on us, otherwise we would get completely stuck.
That goes for the backpack too, my newfound love that will be hanging on my shoulder pretty much the days ahead, roomy and practical, why did I forget that after my days in school?
Classic pieces for these transitional days are on my mind, hence picks of the week lands on these beauties that I wouldn’t have mind pairing together this weekend. I excluded the coat or blazer because I’ve already ordered sunshine.
Happy weekend you lovely ones!
Celine delivers another refined collection pre-fall 2014, and though we’ve seen the chunky turtle knits and similar looks before, Phoebe Philo as usual, manages to update even the most basics items. As for inspiration and style notes to take, style with a knitted sweater, pleated skirts, wide legged trousers, wear socks in them pointy shoes and focus on earrings and ethnic necklaces, I’m in!
Holidays are the best, and I guess I had my fair dose this month which was heavily needed. It’s time to roll up those sleeves (literally!), and look forward to the best season that’s lurking around the corner, no more holiday blues here no.
It’s incredible how escapes and sunny rays lift your mood, and recharge your inspiration batteries.
As for outfits ahead, I could pretty much live in this one all through the coming season, tailored relaxing separates and a pair of luxury slides, pretty much sum up my summer 2014 before it actually began.
Yesterday I had a close up look on the anticipated Kate Moss collection for Topshop, and hello there Mossy frills, sequins and feathers. To me the standout pieces that I bet will sell out quickly, were some of the black evening dresses, luxury for a little less and extremely flattering. You’ll find the whole collection in stores worldwide right now and online exclusively here and here.
Jil Sander left her eponymous label for the 3′rd time back in October for what is said to be personal reasons. After replacing Raf Simons 8 years long success at the helmet of the brand in 2012, Jil Sander’s return turned into a very short-lived affair. Appointed new creative director of the brand now is Italian designer Rodolfo Paglialunga, who formerly worked at Prada and Vionnet, will be showcasing his first collection for Jil Sander in September 2014.
Landing great intern positions (in the fashion industry), and finding the best qualified people for the right position, is just a challenging in the fashion industry as in any other industry, if not even harder. Hence BoF’s initiative of launching a global marketplace for talents (BoF Careers) must be more than welcome for you aspiring, talented people out there looking for a future in the industry. Victoria Beckham is looking for a Digital Marketing Intern as we speak, apply here.
Ah, you know when you return home from an amazing holiday escape, an instant mood drop, feeling of restlessness, a feeling that can be described as holiday blues, which actually can lead to a depression with some. Well, personally I couldn’t be further away from being depressed, but still dreaming of Caribbean beaches and pure fun, on the other hand I guess that’s what holidays are for, dreams!
Anyway, without coming across as whiney, but rather due to my blues, I’ve felt totally uninspired this week sartorial wise, hoping to return strongly after tomorrow’s escape to Marrakech. See you there!
It’s holiday season, and whether one’s having immortal fun at Coachella right now, or enjoying the blues of powdery snow and apres-ski, I wish you all a wonderful Happy Easter!
As for myself I’m heading for Marrakech, and wouldn’t mind bringing along these picks for a better looking poolside. Poncho by Lemlem, gold and diamond erring by Yvonne Leon, Dior’s 210 nail polish, bikini top by Vix, high waisted bikini bottoms by Topshop, La Roche-Posay Anthelios SPF30, slides by Newbark.
Being a black (and white) cat at heart does lead to a pretty monochrome wardrobe, hence it’s fun sometimes to invest in pieces that add that little extra but still goes well with what you already have in stock. A fun bomber is one way to go to mix up with classics, either it is a sporty, mannish or printed version. You’ll find loads of options out there at them moment, and personally I chose to go floral, an addition to my other floral less wardrobe.
Silk bomber by Dries Van Noten (also here), trousers by Studio Nicholson (similar here), t-shirt by Acne, boots by Miu Miu (similar here), bag by Acne, gold earpiece by Sophie Bille Brahe, watch by Larsson&Jennings, diamond rings and bracelet by Monica Vinader and De Beers.
One of my favourite houses this spring, Chloe, has paired up with Net-a-porter, and has created an exclusive capsule collection for the retailer, consisting of 14 ready-to-wear pieces and accessories launched today. I would gladly have welcomed these pieces myself and if you feel so for yourself you better be quick, cause these are gonna fly. You’ll find them all here.
A belated postcard from Casa de Campo in the Dominican Republic is in order, though it’s impossible to sum my amazing trip down to 9 photos. Four days of celebrating a friend’s dream wedding with a wonderful group of people seemed to be just what the doctor ordered.
The beautiful bride, Carolina Gonzalez-Bunster (founder of the Walkabout Foundation), was absolutely radiant in a fantastic creation by Mary Katrantzou, which was in fact Katrantzou’s first bridal creation ever.
