Seriously crushing on Stella McCartney’s A/W-14 knitted creations, knits awesomeness I’d say, and if knitwear didn’t peak this season I’m pretty sure it’s gonna be one of next falls major trends (Céline too!). For those of you talented and creative knitters out there, here are your next DIY projects!
Knits knits knits! They still remain my favourite piece every winter season, and apparently I can never get enough of them, something that the ever growing pile in my wardrobe clearly proves. On another note it’s not so strange, I mean, we wear them 9 months a year in the northern hemisphere, and they pretty much go with anything, especially if you’re more of a minimal dresser like me who prefer simple lines and easy-go-to-combos.
With this mohair beauty it was love at first sight, and I will definitely try to squeeze as many looks out of this little investment piece in the time ahead.
Let fall begin!
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.
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.
Spending time at home nursing my baby can be seriously dangerous for my wallet(!), and in between her naps I find myself searching for all those “necessary” pieces for spring. I’ve wanted a bomber jacket for a long time and my final choice lands on this bulky beauty by Stella McCartney, so versatile and goes with everything, LOVE!
Many of the pre-fall collections that usually tend to get me all wow’ing and so did very little for me this time around. Having that said, as to no surprise (to myself at least), like Phoebe Philo, Stella McCartney always delivers and these are my favourites looks, androgynous classic pieces with maxi proportions signed either of these two ladies can hardly go wrong, can they……
After 2 fantastic relaxing weeks on beautiful Santorini I’ve hopefully charged my batteries to last through the coming darker months.
Today I’m heading back to London to prepare for a very busy fashion month ahead, kicking off in NY next week, and I cant wait! Feeling beyond ready to leave my summer wardrobe and modus behind and dive into a new season, a fresh start, like every fall.
Time to wake up from my coma, bye bye clear blue waters, sandals, black beaches and tranquilo, wishing you all a great day and see you back in London!
Wide dress made by my mum, sandals from Zara, bag by Stella McCartney and Ray Ban’s.
We’ve finally got a little more taste of summer in London and I don’t need to be asked twice to make the best out of it, though I’d would be very happy to see more of the sun itself. Anyway, sun or not, I felt inspired to wear a hint of tropics in form of this bag paired with an otherwise monochrome look yesterday. As we constantly need to bring along an umbrella and jumper these days the size of this bag is perfect even if I optimally wish it contained a beach towel and “beachy” literature.

Stella McCartney hosted a carnival garden party in NY the other day to present her resort collection for 2013 that includes lots of lovely pieces and monochrome looks. Stella and Phoebe Philo worked together at Chloe in late 90’s and there’s no doubt they share the same style aesthetique, which I personally find so appealing, loving the leopard and floral pieces, not to mention the wide legged trousers in this collection.
Hhmmm, I’ve long time had this canvas bag by Stella McCartney in the back of my head, especially on hot days like this I really don’t want to drag along a black leather shopper. The kitschy hawaiian print would add something to any simple tee+denim look, and it would work just as well in the city as on the beach, ok I could go on justifying it forever, perhaps time to strike (?)
