I love how both Alexander Wang’s sporty’ish street-wear-vibes, and Christobal Balenciaga’s heritage and handcraft shine through this collection, yet there’s something new onboard + plenty of beautiful details to keep in mind come spring 2014!
As you may know my style is quite simple, a tee and a pair of favourite jeans sometimes does it for me, together with the right accessories of course. Playing around with classic pieces is my way to go, and I just cannot get enough of breton striped tops. I’ve practically lived in this linen tee the whole spring, it’s super-soft and has survived through many washes, though it says dry clean only on the tag (why do they do that?).
Anyway, now it’s Sunday, and a lot warmer than when these shots were taken, so a bikini will be my outfit of today. Wishing you all a wonderful chilled Sunday you too!
Jeans by JBrand, T by Alexander Wang, shoes by DelRioLondon (here, here), bracelet by Balenciaga (similar styles here) and bag by Celine. PS: If you’re interested in DelRioLondon slippers, you can always contact the designer directly, please see website for contact details.
Woop woop, another week has past and I’m sort of on hold, hello “limboland”!
I’ve been keeping myself busy this week by stopping by a few fashion week events and tried to have some work done. I’ve totally given into comfortable dressing at this point that allows room for really strong and unpredictable kicks(!) and splashed it with old and new accessories, like my good old Obsedia and this cashmere turban.
Dress by Cos, cashmere turban by Rosie Sugden(on sales), Zara wool coat, bag by Givenchy, bracelet by Balenciaga and sunnies by Tom Ford.
Wishing you all a fabulous weekend!!!
3 favourites of mine right now that I especially like wearing with blue denim!
Estée Lauder’s Nail Lacquer in So Vain, except for the exceptional beautiful bottle this is the perfect nude’ish nail polish and only one coat is needed, launching in March 2013.
Hoop earrings by Topshop, not too chunky or heavy (for actually being worn!).
Leather cuff by Balenciaga, similar here.
The last couple of days there’s been a rumour flying in the wind that Alexander Wang has been a likely candidate to replace Nicolas Ghesquiere as Creative Director at Balenciaga. According to WWD the rumour has been confirmed true to market sources and an announcement from the fashion house is expected to be released this week.

I’ve been crushing on these overloads of golden rings ever since they strolled down the Balenciaga SS13 runway back in September. These are some of my absolute favourite accessories for spring, and something I think will sell quick as a flash when they hit stores in February/March, sadly I want (need!?) them right now…..

A little unexpected news are that one of my favourite designers, Nicolas Ghesquière, and Balenciaga are parting ways after 15 years with Nicolas at the helm of the iconic fashion house. According to WWD, the split is a joint decision on both parts and no further news on what’s next has been confirmed.
My favourite looks from Balenciaga’s SS13 collection, that I wouldn’t try to resist, and totally fell for the tailored sharp structures, yet very nude collection with a lot of focus on the waistline. An area that I intend to sport come spring 2013, and just another motivation why getting back into shape post baby is super high on my priority list! See the whole collection here.
And oh, 1pm (CET) today it’s Celine time, stay tuned!
Yeah, we’ve been blessed with gorgeous summery weather in London this week and a little over night I had to move from a fall mood into summer again. Luckily a few of the pieces I’ve bought lately can easily be used in 30 degrees heat as on cooler days, this new “clever skirt” by Isabel Marant with an elastic waistline and pockets is one of them. Easy to throw on when you’re on the go, perfect to roll and carry along in a bag, and will work just as well with tights when those days come. As for now I’ll wear it with easy summery tanks and tops to avoid a melting process.
Images taken the other day, I wore tank by Balenciaga, skirt (dress here) by Isabel Marant, shoes by Prada, bag by Celine and Ray Ban’s.
Balenciaga’s fall ads, photographed by Steven Meisel, include my absolute favorite pieces by the fashion house this fall, I know I’m repeating myself but I find all these jumpers and fabrics breathtaking. Also, the other day I got the chance to check out most of the jewellery and shoes in this collection and though some was a little over the top 80’s for my liking there were definitely a few outstanding pieces, the shoes on top please send my way!
