Leopard never seem to leave the spotlight and one or two leopard pieces “should” be included in every wardrobe, and sales periods are the perfect time to keep your eyes open for classic leopard additions. This knitted jumper with a graph back by Stella McCartney is certainly a clear favourite of mine, and will be perfect for fall 2013. If interested you’ll find it here and here.
Hope you all had a fabulous weekend and a great kickoff in the new week!
Summer, yes, what was that again, someone please remind me, I seem to have forgotten the meaning and content of it by now, and realised that the only way of getting one is to escape England at some point very soon.
A lesson learned for me this year is not going bananas for summery stuff (fully prized) early in the season, unless it’s one of those really rare pieces that sell out immediately. I mean by the chance you get to wear them they are already in the summer sales so whats the point (think I just made a pair of retailer enemies right now!).
You haven’t missed out that some summer sales have officially kicked off in Europe? As usual during sales I only look for classic pieces or stuff I know for sure I will use all throughout next season. And if I hadn’t already got a new bag (a checked bargain by Dries Van Noten, hurra!) I might have been up for one of these suede mini beauties by Saint Laurent, 30% off and yours for £661.
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…
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.
Ok, so it is, Isabel Marant for H&M is confirmed the latest collaboration out there. Not really sure if I’m feeling much to be honest, it feels like we’ve seen Marant’ish stuff on the highstreet already, but you can be sure of a digital explosion worldwide of product images until the collection will launch 14th of November.
Searching for a super comfortable, glam, yet understated sandal with functionality, then look no further, and look up delRioLondon. These are unisex slippers with a Spanish heritage and come in all sorts of leather, fabrics and colours (pony hair, leopard anyone?). Mine are SS14 and special editions in vintage Chanel fabric and I absolutely love them!
Summer has (finally!) arrived and it’s time to get those pale legs out there shall we. I intend to do so with the help of dresses and floppy skirts after traumatising many months locked up in jeans.
I prefer investing in separates that can be worn and put together in a million ways, and a new skirt of mine is this soft denim piece by Hofmann Copenhagen, perfect to throw on, dressed up or down, comes with elastic waist and pockets (I just love my pockets!). Though the shape is quite “girly” I’m up for the challenge and will wear it with nothing too too pretty if you know what I mean.
Do you know those days when you’ve got no clue what to wear and you grab for whatever closest to you?Well, I know very well what that’s about these days, and the result may end up being slightly schizophrenic……
Hehe, no more words needed but I hope you all had an absolute fabulous weekend and may the sun be on your side the coming one too!
London weather is crap right now and lightyears from summery, well, the miserable weather can be used as a good excuse for long catch-ups with friends, here at The Waterway yesterday, and as extra “comfort” I’ve got a new bag beauty by my side by Tod’s.
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.
Alicia Vikander by Saskia Lawaks for Vogue Paris
Beauty Alicia Vikander has been one of my favourite Swedes since ‘A Royal Affair‘, one of my movie highlights of 2012. And except from looking gorgeous on red carpets and award ceremonies lately, she sported one of the cutest summery looks I’ve seen from Cannes this week, just loving this breezy look.
