Le belt 2012

Daphne Groeneveld by Josh Olins for Vogue China February 2012

Even though the Givenchy tooth necklace might be the thing that draws your attention in this gorgeous pic of Daphne, it’s the wide belt by Celine that I’m all excited about, and could perhaps be the ultimate accessory to me this spring. No Celine belts in stores yet as far as I know so I’ll be keeping my eyes open for alternatives with the same oversized rectangular buckle, to be worn low on the hips like this with a skirt or pants, or in the waist on a coat or jacket. Perhaps you’ve got any tip?

Daphne Groeneveld

I snapped the Dutch model Daphne Groeneveld several times in Paris, here straight off the Lanvin runway just before sunset, and oh what a true beauty she is. We all know she knows how to work the runway and in front of the camera, like in the recent Versace for H&M campaign and in Peter Lindbergh’s fantastic “Immortal love”, but in real life I find her even more striking.

Versace + H&M

Happy Monday morning folks, hope you all had a lovely weekend! I’ve been backing up my computer this weekend which took like forever but now all done and I’ll have posts coming.

You’ve probably seen it already but here’s one of Versace for H&M’s campaign shots starring Daphne Groeneveld and Lindsey Wixson, lensed by Mert & Marcus. Love this, black leather, studs and loads of details, looks very promising. You didn’t miss out that ADR was wearing one of the dresses last week.
The collection will be available in selected stores worldwide from November 19th.

Immortal love

Images by Peter Lindbergh

Since I came across these images by Peter Lindbergh for Numero#126 a week ago they’ve been hunting me. I find these images longing, poetic, intensive and cinematic with such a beautiful storyline (I strongly assume you’re able to see through just the young-woman-old man-thing). This is Lindbergh’s second tribute to the classic movie Wings of Desire(1987) by Wim Wenders, which he first paid tribute to in a 93′Bazaar editorial, featuring Amber ValettaCity of Angels(1998), which is probably more known to many, is an American remake of the original German movie. These captivating images featuring Daphne Groeneveld and actor Pascal Greggory also make me think of Luc Besson‘s B&W movie Angel-A(2005), really worth watching!
