I'ts ll about the details

Balmain you've got my head spinning

BALMAIN, what a crazy collection, I mean that in a good way....Normally I would never like anything that is over the top, but this collection is balancing on the edge of being too much and being perfect. The cut of the pieces is so refined and the  elaborate embroideries of the fabrics have the most beautiful patterns. Balmain has a new head of design: Olivier Rousteing. The difference was really clear: Balmain is not tacky, but Chic with the capital C!
I love it how he combines this elaborate pieces with a simple white Tee. The black leather embossed suit, is so well cut, and beautiful! Also the light blue washed denim that he combines with the black leather, tones down the look and gives it just that little bit of elegance to balance it out. My favorite is the white bomber jacket with the star studs. I just can't get enough of this collection....

insane B A L M A I N !

Ooooh my god! How amazing are these shoes!? B A L M A I N they are. I know it is so blase to just talk about shoes, but these are an exception on the rule! I guess my taste is changing a bit...I am just going MAD for these. Love the cut out leather and the pointy boot cut. The whole collection made me drooling (love that word) by the way, more about the good stuff tomorrow...

Today it is friday! I am so looking forward to the weekend somehow! So, time for some sinful materialistic wanders.... Gorgeous clutch from KURT GEIGER. Amazing color, I would be so happy if I could put my hands on this one! Also these studded slingbacks, would look killing on me. Although the weather is good lately, I am looking forward in finding my way in this cozy KNIT dress from Isabel Marant! BON WEEKEND!

All Tomorrow's Parties...

Paul Smith, oooooh yes, I say rock n ROLL! Love the nonchalant silouette. Hands in the pockets and S T R O L L . I would love to have heard the music that was playing:  "All Tomorrow's Parties," by the Velvet Underground. New lengths of the trousers; "high water length" as we say in holland. Good skirt length and love the color. Also the loafers are lovely, especially the ones in the last two pics. The pyjama feel is just right, just combine one piece of the pyjama in one outfit. Only the top or only the bottom, S T R I K I N G!

Streets of London

I wish I was there, it has been ages that I have been to London....I will go there soon, I have just decided. I love the chunky bracelet on the first pic. The hippy feel of the second pic is unmistakenly, I L O V E it! The burgundy cardigan is of the hook and the oversized knit + bag in the last pic are RAD! L O V E the last outfit as well! Have a nice sunday....

Turn your Head

Somehow I got fascinated by the headwear seen at the karen walker SS12 show. When you first look at the headbands you think of a cleaning lady that is scrubbing the floors all day long, but then the girl with the cap walked in and I realized that that seeing the headbands in a colorful row like this is actually quite spectacular!
Especially with the orange/ rose-hip colored lipstick. I love this modern fifties feel!

Stine Goya SS12

I wanted to show you this movie a lot earlier, but somehow I forgot. Now I found it again, STINE GOYA for stockholm fashionweek. I love this clip partly because of the song I guess... The seventies hairdo's with the bangs are tres cool....

Doo Ri SS 12

What I noticed by looking at a lot of collections presented at the New York fashionweek is that the designers not choose one look, but go for a few segmentations within their collections. I personally love the handwriting of Doo Ri, elegant with a certain finesse and very feminine. I didn't liked all the looks of the SS 12 collection, but there were a few looks that I absolutely LOVED. The fringed suit-dress in this pinkish color is RAD, also the black variant looks very tasty. There was a lot of draping in the collection, wich is new for Doo Ri who is normally more into subtile lines. The white short suit, with the round lines on the short is still a winner look according to me. Beautiful necklace as wel!

WANG! or do I mean BANG! What a new collection! It has a lot of sports influences; athletic chic, as I refer to the style.com comment. Mesh is popping up everywhere! Felocity, or the need for speed....was definitely the feeling I got when I first looked at the collection. You see the ALL OVER flower print that we have also seen in a lot of previous resort collections. But this is presented in a FAST way, that it is really funky! 
The collection is segmented in a lot of different "GANGS" as Alexander refer to them himself. A few different styles, that work together in a collection very well. A very fresh vision that is very inspiring for me. I love the wet look as well!
