Giambattista Valli’s Giamba

Giambattista Valli Pre-fall 2014Giambattista Valli Pre-Fall 2014

French-Italian designer Giambattista Valli, will be launching a new more playful line at Milan Fashion Week in September called Giamba.

“All my friends call me Giamba, and the moniker reflects the spirit of this new project. It’s another side of the same coin, another collection that runs in parallel with the designer brand, one completing the other,” Valli told WWD. “There is also a playful, underground and sexy side in me and in my designs that you will see in the Giamba line. I’ve been thinking about it for a while and waited for the right time, and now it’s matured. I am really very happy.”

Spring 2013 Couture

I’m celebrating this Friday morning with some of my favourite couture looks presented this week in Paris, dreamy graphics at Giambattista Valli, sharp romanticism at Christian Dior, and beautiful whites at Valentino. Though couture might feel lightyears away for most people beautiful dreams and inspiration are both for free. On another note I’m loving that some couture has taken a smarter and cleaner path, though the simplicity I wouldn’t underestimate the handcrafts, it’s still there for sure.

Road closed

Ok, I’ve had it with black opaque tights, and while we’re at it, I’ve had it with wintery coats too. Sorry for sounding negative, but black tights don’t really lift many outfits do they, and most skirts and dresses are far better off with bare legs. Unless you’re into printed or pastel colored tights, which I’m not, I guess there are not many options left in the Northern hemisphere right now. So, lets really hope for an even earlier spring than last year, longing….

Images taken on a cold day this week, hence the stiffness, I wore wool dress by Phillip Lim, turtle neck H&M, coat Oasis, boots Giambattista Valli and bag Celine.

Blank page

Ok, from now on I’ll be posting here as normal, my mum has left London and this holiday season has come to an end, time to roll up those sleeves, get back to business and try to stick to those new year resolutions. I always like to see the beginning of year as a blank page that you’ve got one year to fill, day 3 of January and mine is pretty empty but I’ll catch up I promise.

Images taken on a shopping spree with my mum on Saturday, didn’t buy much for myself but I’ve got to admit I’m pretty good at pushing my company to. I wore a shirt by Dior, angora knit H&M, skirt Whyred, coat Topshop Boutique, boots Giambattista Valli and bag Celine.

Soon baby soon

Wow, it’s getting cold out there so this weekend I’ve wrapped up in layers of wool, on chilly days like these my wool pants are a saver and if you’re interested to get a pair of your own you’ll find them on sales right now.
Anyway, there are no snowflakes in sight but I hope it will arrive in time and at least where I’m heading later this week, to the north of Norway, there’s a much bigger chance of a white Christmas. Cannot wait to go home to meet family and friends again, soon baby…. soon!

A missing month

Got back from a Christmas market with a bag full of delicatessen, saucisson and cheese, not very Christmacy but so damn good. As for the Christmas spirit I still have a long way to go, I don’t know about you, but I’m a little confused this year, not a minus degree in sight yet (won’t complain about that!) and December arrived so suddenly, what happened with November?

Anyway, why I’m clearing that mystery out here’s what I wore today, as I’m starting to get tired of being wrapped up all the time in big coats I put it aside for the photos and then it went straight back on again. I wore skirt by James Perse, knit Alexander Wang, booties Giambattista Valli, bag Acne and ring Pamela Love for Topshop.

Happy Friday

Say hello to my new suede shoes by Giambattista Valli, my goodies from last week’s Black Friday sale finally arrived on my doorstep. I know they are high but would you believe me if I told you they’re comfortable, in fact they are. Did you get anything on the sales?
