To me, a slightly bizarre sight, Kanye West performs at Coachella in my dream blouse by Celine……
Yesterday I had a look on Jaeger’s Collection for Spring 2011 in their flagshop store on Regent Street and there were several pieces I liked. I’m not a typical Jaeger girl, parts of the collections are usually “too kind” and classic to me but I always find those items I would wear straight away and in this collection there were many of them. The color scheme was a mix of sand, blue, green, choral and black & white, highly wearable sportswear that definitely should appeal to a younger generation.
I’m gonna grab one of the belted bags myself when they’re in store and wear it with a wide, white summer dress and sandals, oh spring come soon.
Images doesn’t do some of the items justice so please see below in movement.
Today I went to a press event where we had a look through spring/summer collections from brands like Sass&Bide, Twenty8Twelve, David Koma, Calvin Klein, Massimo Dutti, Pringle of Scotland and several others. As I’ve posted earlier my heart beats for David Koma’s Spring collection that was presented during LFW but also the shoes and robust accessories Mawi for David Koma stood out. There were some beautiful silk fabric pieces from S&B Vie by sass & bide and on the beauty side a new fragranced series from my personal favorite Philosophy.
Today I attended a press view at Armani on New Bond Street, where collections from both Emporio and Giorgio Armani were presented. There’s one thing to see things on a runway show or images of it, but I love to be able to study every garment up close and the quality and fabrics in both these lines were excellent. Statement jewellery was an ingredient in both lines and the small box shaped purse to hang around the neck and the rain coat where among my favorites.
I’ve been asked about these images and yes, they are taken by me with my little pocket camera
On Friday the british designer Hannah Marshall presented her Spring/Summer Collection 2011, I’ve kept an eye on her the last year and really like her designs. See-through was the main theme in her new collection and for the first time she took a step away from black and included new colors, grey and mint, beautiful, simple and sleek and the whole collection can easily be layered. The details on the tops and dresses are gorgeous, I know, I’ve felt them with my own fingers and also tried on the fantastic long silk frock with, already on my wish list.
I find it hard to pick favorites in this collection, I would love to wear every single item and layer them in different ways and colors, one of my absolute favorites for SS11, love it!

The british and ethical designer Ada Zanditon presented her Spring/Summer Collection 2011 called ‘The Pyramora’ yesterday at the Victoria House. A quite unknown designer to me so I really didn’t know what to expect but when I read through the idea and thoughts around this collection there was something that caught my interest, words like geometry, architecturally cut, pyramid structures and mathematical exploration, this was the right place for me, 2 interests of mine combined, fashion and mathematics, and yes, I do have a degree in math.
Summed up it was a beautiful show where all the references above suddenly made sense, Egyptian pyramids formation throughout the whole collection, the details on the dresses and hair and the models also moved in a triangular choreography. Images are taken by me with my little pocket camera, sadly the avant-garde dress in metallic brown that almost made me loose my breath came out blurry so not included above but hopefully I will have time during the day to snap it at Esthetica.
The collection will be shown at Rendes-Vous Femme in Paris, from 1st-4th October for those of you there.
Acne presented their Spring/Summer Collection 2011 yesterday in a small venue at Princess Margaret’s former apartment in Kensington Palace. This is one of my personal favorite brands and everyone who knows me probably picked up on that one by now.
I do have to admit I’m a bit disappointed, nothing really revolutionary or big surprises but Jonny Johansson also said this about his collection “Nothing retro, no references,” on the other side that’s also why I love their design, where each piece shine with the simplicity and can so easily be put together to your own style.
The highlight for me was the red pieces, a fresh breeze into a collection that mainly consisted of black, nudes and neutrals, see the whole collection here
