Madonna!

Madonna claimed the thrown back and threw a quite convincing half time show during yesterday’s Super Bowl (Gaga, step aside!). I’d say she absolutely rocked it in several Givenchy Haute Couture in a spectacular performance duetting with LMFAO, MIA, Nicki Minaj and Cee Lo Green. See the whole show here.

Prada S/S 2012

If you have missed out on this spring’s fastest shoes, most glittery bijoux, and some of the coolest prints that I guess anyone with a right mind would want to add to their wardrobes (if they could), then here it is, Prada’s spring/summer 2012 campaign video, which takes place on a gas station (highly suitable!). Vroom Vroom, enjoy!

Who else than Anna Wintour would be able to rock a full on outfit from Celine’s pre-fall 2012 collection, looking absolutely radiant, only 2 weeks after images of the collection were out.
Wishing you all a wonderful Friday eve!

Balmain Pre-Fall 2012

I stopped looking in Balmain’s direction a long time ago, trashy denims and t-shirts attached to out-of -this-world-price-tags didn’t feel appealing to me in any way. But something has definitely changed with the young new designer, Olivier Rousteing in the lead, and his pre-fall 2012 collection is really beautiful and cool with it’s new oversized silhouettes (and no holes in sight!).

KARL preview

Here’s a little preview of the KARL collection and to my positive surprise the collection had overall a sporty-edgy-glam feel to it. Jackets with zipper details, shorts, knee length skirts, tops, dresses, in fabrics from cotton, silk, sport mesh, polyester, sequins and leather (both real and faux). The accessories included gloves, bags, shoes and collars, sadly no sunnies for now, but hopefully they’ll come. Officially on my wish list: The pleated faux leather skirt, leather biker vest, droopy waisted sequined dress and all sandals!

If you love Alexander Wang, I think you’re gonna like this, and the good news is that it comes with more reasonable price tags, which start from £20, but most pieces range between £100-£300 (with a few exceptions from the leather bikers).

The launch on Wednesday, will take place on joint global events in Paris, New York, London, Berlin and Sydney. If you happen to be in London, then head over to Unit 3 at Covent Garden Market at 3.30pm, where goody bags will be handed to the first fifty visitors. Maybe I’ll see you there?

Acne Pre-Fall 2012


Images style.com

Yeah Acne, overall I think this pre-fall collection is awesome and includes everything from tailored, pin stripes, wide belts, boxy jackets, tweed an shiny fabrics, in a sort of mix and references to many of my other favorite fashion houses (without naming any!). As I’m not crazy about those cropped wide-legged-trousers I didn’t include those looks here but you’ll find the whole collection on style.com.

Chanel – the making

You’ve probably seen the beautiful Chanel spring campaign by now, where Joan Smalls and Saskia de Brauw perform gymnastics hanging above the sea, seen through the lens of Lagerfeld himself. Here’s a behind-the-scene-video from the shot that took place in Cap d’Antibes, and if you’re not already longing for summer by the sea, this might get you started….
Happy Friday noon!

Balenciaga Pre-Fall 2012

Images style.com

I’ve got a really soft spot for Nicolas Ghesquière’s creations for Balenciaga who usually delivers some of my favorite collections every season. But this time I’m not totally taken, his pre-fall collection has a little too many 80′s references for my taste and those hideous zebra opaque tights just doesn’t do it for me, so I guess it’s perhaps down to the styling. However there are plenty of pieces here I love like many of the leather pieces and lovely jumpers and I’m really curious on their new range of earrings, and lets not forget about the shoes. See the whole collection here and make up your own mind.

Here are some really nice stuff at H&M this spring, the jacket and metallic pants are clear favorites of mine and will be in store in February with reasonable price tags like £49.99 and £34.99.
Oki, I’m on the run out to catch a little daylight but I’ll do an outfit post later on, happy Sunday!

Italian escape

Dolce & Gabbana Spring 2012 Campaign

Ok, I’m not a huge fan of Dolce  & Gabbana‘s vegetable printed spring collection, those chilis, onions and tomatoes have still not convinced me, but I do have to admit I love the spring campaign!!! It’s real, warm and sunny and brings you on a journey to the Italian coast in pure Italian style fronted by Monica Bellucci and Bianca Balti, photographed by Giampaolo Sgura.

Happy Saturday everyone!

Mango Spring 2012 Lookbook

Images Mango

No, this is not a follow up on Isabel Marant’s Etoile lookbook for spring but for highstreet Mango fronted by the same girl Anna Selezneva. If you’re on a tighter budget and fancy the casual-city-chic-Parisian-wibe of Marant, Mango looks like the place to stop by, acid washed + pastells = spring, I feel tempted to check out that white jumper and iron belt myself.

Celine Pre-Fall 2012

Images style.com

Holy Phoebe Philo, you’ve done it again, another pre-collection for Celine that makes my mouth water. Everything from the oversized silhouettes, leather pants, pin striped suit to the cobalt blue coat, what can I say. There’s no doubt that Philo’s designs are directional for the next season to come and in a way I find her pre-collections most inspiring. Right now I feel like digging out a pair of old leather skinnies, jump into a pair of white sneekers and open a Celine savings account. See the whole collection here.

Givenchy Pre-Fall 2012

Images style.com

Masculine tailoring continues in pre-fall 2012 collections and one of my favorites are by Givenchy. Who would resist the beautiful coats though the key item in this collection is definitely the boots worn in almost every single look. I was never really a fan of Isabel Marant’s knee-high fringed boots this season, felt too costumey, these however in leather got my attention, so cool!!!
