No Céline

Celine fall 13-14, images style.com

If you are waiting for images from Phoebe Philo’s Resort 2014 collection to drop at style.com or other sites then please don’t hold your breath. According to WWD the Céline house has decided to “do-a-Tom Ford” and keep images of the new collection under wrap for now. And we may all wonder why, or perhaps not (read Zara?).

Meanwhile, we’ve always the fall collection to dream about, the pale knee length skirts, voluminous tops and checked coats for instance, meow…

Bomber

It’s not often I move over to the lighter colour palette but it does happen in between denim days. I’ve had this bomber jacket for a while now but haven’t really had the chance to use it much, a mesh jacket in a 10 degree London doesn’t sound like a hit right. Anyway, I’ve finally dug it out and it could potentially be the perfect throw-on this summer, if the the higher forces allows it.

Satin

London right now, rainy, 12 degrees and almost hostile….

Contrasting to last week when I was up in Oslo and celebrated the Norwegian Constitution Day in the most fabulous weather, who would have thought!
On the day I reached for black shiny surfaces, 2 new additions to my wardrobe, a pair of satin trousers and silk top, which I miraculously managed to keep clean all day through with my little 3 months girl  (drooling) in my arms, guess I’m learning.

Oslo

Happy Monday noon everyone!
I’ve enjoyed my last week in Oslo with family and friends in the most surprisingly gorgeous weather, and haven’t had much time for updates. Stylewise it’s been pretty relaxed and right now I cannot get enough of these super soft dungarees with just the perfect wash.
Little Hedda on the other hand has finally got the chance to wave those little toes free in the air, bless the arrival of summer!

Staples

We all have a few staples in our wardrobe that we always tend to grab for, the few items you really love and never seem to get enough of, especially on days your creativity is like non existing. In my case these goodies are as simple as skinny jeans, along with some t-shirts, so basically the most basic you can imagine.
Needless to say I felt glorious happy the other day when I finally managed to slip into my favourite skinnies again after being separated way too long (8 months!), that feeling…..
Wishing you a fabulous Sunday noon and see you in Oslo where I’ll be heading tomorrow!

I’m back!

Heeeey darling readers, I hope you are all fabulously well, it’s been a while and I’ve missed this space, 5 weeks in fact, and lots of things have happened on my side ever since.

I’ve finally named my precious 6 weeks old baby girl to Hedda Maly, discovered new meanings to the word multitasking, walked many miles, cut a small fringe, taken a million shots of my little Hedda, added new stuff to my wardrobe come warmer days and pre-preggy shape, spent a lot of time with my mum who has been visiting and helping me (bless!!!), and I have a new Celine darling in my arms.

What unfortunately has not happened so far is the arrival of spring, don’t get me started on last week’s snow in London, and back on are winter coats, scarves and gloves, as if we weren’t tired of this by now. Well, if you like me are tired of the sight of your winter coats and jackets by this point, adding a belt is an easy fix.

Hoop

Hehe, you know maybe it’s time to capitulate when what used to be one of the most oversized items in your wardrobe starts feeling tight and when you by the end of the day need assistance to get shoes off (!). I’m definitely there, but since I just cannot sit at home waiting for anything to happen, and feel perfectly good when on my feet (heels!), I might even attend a few shows during LFW that kicks off tomorrow, well, we’ll see how it goes.

Anyway, hoop earrings and chunky knitwear are on my sartorial mind these days and if you’re looking for hoop earrings without spending too much you’ll find a great selection at Topshop.

Boosted!

My everyday outfits these days are pretty far away from Haute Couture, but it’s the reality for most of us and that’s perfectly fine too. This week I’ve been out on the run a lot, and though I’m beyond tired of what’s left in my wardrobe I can still fit into, and my mobility slightly reduced, there’s no point of complaining about it. Instead I choose to focus on the positive things, like my new boots I got this week, that suddenly boosted my spirit a little, the perfect treat.
And now it’s weekend, yeah, wishing you all a fabulous one too!!!

Celine SS13

Can’t help but loving Celine’s SS campaign photographed by Juergen Teller, as cool as ever despite the furry sandals (why the fur?). Daria Werbowy still remains one of my favourite models and I’m loving her hairdo, if only I had the guts!

Celine Pre-Fall 2013

Images style.com

I cant say this is the most revolutionary and inspiring Phoebe Philo collection I’ve seen, but the tailored pieces and some of the white-shirt-looks (minus the shoes!) in Celine’s pre-fall are definitely right up my alley.

Layering


While up in Oslo earlier this week I got a strong reminder of what real winter is about, I once was used to arctic weather, but -19 raw Oslo air, honestly, it was really painful and not very surprisingly the streets were almost empty of people. I wore my duvet winter parka every day, which I guess is the only way to stay warm along with furry boots, except one day, when I bravely stepped out in this cape, sometimes layering of wool work as well, at least if you just rush in and out between stores and cafées.

I wore leather leggings by Joseph (or similar style here), wool cape by Hofmann, boots by Acne, bag by Celine and sunnies by Tom Ford.

Mismatch

I sometimes get asked if I plan outfits beforehand, and honestly I don’t, which again is the reason why my travel luggage is heavily overweight as I practically bring along everything on the front shelves of my wardrobe. I’ve always dressed in this organised chaotic way where whatever I feel like on the day slips on. The result however sometimes end up being a complete mismatch of pieces I like when I’m on the run, everything but too planned and “matchy matchy”, just the way I like it!

Btw, I’ve got these new maternity skinny jeans by J Brand, with a super low comfortable elastic panelled waist and otherwise the perfect fit like J Brand’s usually are, genius! Otherwise knit by IRO, new wool coat Hofmann Copenhagen, boots Isabel Marant, bag by Celine and sunnies by Tom Ford.

Celine SS13

Images style.com

If you like me, expect nothing less than an solid injection of inspiration everytime Phoebe Philo serves a new collection for Celine, then you won’t be disappointed this time around either. Though I have to admit not every look are my cup of tea, there are certainly those who are. I especially like the play of contrasting structures and the unfinished feel that many of the pieces have, which make it less perfect, cooler and so effortless elegant.
Favourite piece: The black mesh dress with pockets (Olalla, I’m in love!).

Royal hues

Thanks a lot for your best wishes the other day, I survived my little emergency, going through some torture for feeling so much better afterwards was definitely worth it!

Anyway, this time of year it’s usually about transitional dressing, which is my favourite time, when you can wear fall’s new skirts, dresses, coats and boots with bare legs. Personally I’m so into dark, rich colours this coming season, especially royal hues, but I’ll wait a little longer before I’ll bring them all out in the shape of a fall wardrobe, after all it’s still 24 degrees out there.

Knit & Lace

Another week has flown away and tomorrow I’m heading for my first vacation in ages, 1 week in Cyprus with family, can’t wait to feel burning sand between my toes, feeling the sea breeze and stroll around in hardly-there-fabrics.

Well, as London is back to it’s usual London-weather we haven’t been overwhelmed by heat lately, but shorts and long sleeves have been working sort of, so I’ve added a few new pieces to my wardrobe, like this super soft angora jumper by Acne and lace shorts from Topshop. I wore them earlier this week with shoes by Camilla Skovgaard, bag by Celine, watch Tagheuer and sunnies by Ralph Lauren.
Wishing you all a fab Thursday eve!
