Looking for a leather biker this season? Then a hot tip is this beauty by Swedish brand Hunkydory seen on Anna Seleznava in their SS13 campaign, you’ll find it soon in their online shop.
Except for classic pointy pumps and sling backs (my favourites!) are sort of every-season-trends, also trending this spring are cut-outs and gladiator styles as seen at Altuzarra, Alexander Wang, Proenza Schouler and Isabel Marant. PVC details and clear surfaces on everything from soles, heels and straps as seen at Chanel, Valentino, Celine, Stella McCartney and Givenchy, are also here to stay this coming spring and summer.
Vogue Paris what takes you so long to hit counters in London, cause I can’t wait to dive into this February issue that looks fully packed of inspiration. Especially this editorial styled by Emmanuelle Alt modelled by Andrea Diaconu, that includes cool casual denim styling, trench coats, streets of NY, a great model, Dries, hairy Celine sandals (better get used to these I’m afraid), and stunning images by David Sims. Absolutely love this spread!

Woop, woop, happy Monday morning!
I’ve been spending some time this weekend going through all spring collections again (!), and one of the ones I’m looking forward myself to hit stores soon is Unique’s chic, airy and sophisticated collection. It includes everything from graphic pieces, asymmetric dresses to all monochrome looks for a (little!) more affordable penny.
Ok, I can’t say that it happens very often that Max Mara has been source of my inspiration, but ever since I came across the spring campaign a month ago it’s been hiding in the back of my mind, suddenly I’m dreaming of sandy colours and classic-safari-minimalism come spring. I totally agree with Cathy Horyn who gives her thumbs up to this campaign, which is strong, polished and elegantly beautiful, and just like that Max Mara is on my radar……
Givenchy’s Spring 2013 campaign is one of the most beautiful and interesting I’ve seen in a while, Riccardo Tisci’s muse, Mariacarla Boscono, poses with her own baby daughter and radiates vulnerability, femininity and strength all in one go. Styling by Carine Roitfeld and photographed by Mert & Marcus.
Today I popped by Vassilisa’s showroom and had a closer inspection on Nadja Solovieva’s SS13 collection, and gosh does it include some amazing printed silk and cashmere scarves that I wouldn’t mind have hanging around my neck come spring. I couldn’t leave empty handed and brought something incredible soft and luxurious along home with me, yeah!
Well I do, and wouldn’t have minded having this beauty in my arms when I head for the Drapers Awards tonight. If you haven’t already seen the accessories to go with Saint Laurent Paris’s SS13 sharp-rockn’roll-Californian-wiiiiide-brimmed-hat silhouettes, then Hedi Slimane’s first line of accessories for Saint Laurent is now ready for pre-order here. This beauty is yours for £735.

I’ve been crushing on these overloads of golden rings ever since they strolled down the Balenciaga SS13 runway back in September. These are some of my absolute favourite accessories for spring, and something I think will sell quick as a flash when they hit stores in February/March, sadly I want (need!?) them right now…..

I wasn’t too found of some of Balmain SS13 80-90’s power-suit-women marching down the runway, with shoulder paddings out of this world, but I absolutely loved their hair. I used to wear this kind of not-so-perfect-braided-hair as a kid, and now I feel tempted to give it another go, with a pair of cool earrings, denim, leather, or a cozy knit, it’s so fresh!
Either you’re a true Isabel Marant girl at heart or usually like parts of Marant’s collections, I’m sure you’ll find pieces in the “hawaiian-Elvis”-inspired SS13 collection qualifying for your spring-wish-list. We all know that the most coveted Marant pieces usually fly off the shelves, especially the shoes. But if you want to make sure to lay you’re hands on your favourite runway pieces you can pre-order at Moda Operandi right now until 11pm (EDT) 18th of October. My favourites are the brown studded high heel sandals, shown above in white, and the gorgeous blouse worn by Aymeline Valade, mmmm…..
