Rock 'n Roll Giorgio

There was something pretty amazing at the AW12 Giorgio Armani Show. There is just something about it that I really like. I don't like all the silhouettes, but there was some rock 'n roll vibe going on that was hard to miss. 
The Hot Pink half cut out gloves!! I don't know if they are practical in any kind, but they look stunning! Modern eccentric you can call it. There was even a little bit of a "Rockabilly" feeling in it as well. I also like the open back silhouette. I think this will be crazy for the next summer as well. But already seen it here for winter is RAD. I for sure say yes to those brightly hued creepers! They are scary and awesome at the same time, grrrr

NOW

OK, I am thinking SUMMER PASTELS.....I like this drawing below so much. I don't know who the artist is. I remember it seeing it on the runway, but I also can't remember the designer....What I do know is that it is  a really striking silhouette and color combination. I just found the cheesiest line ever on the lovely website of Ana Montiel. Here it comes: 

The past is history
The future is a mystery
and 
This moment is a gift, 
that is why we call it present
live in the N O W

It makes me think of this. Brilliant name.
That was it for today.....

The perfect ACNE Boots


OK, seriously: I NEED these SS12 Acne Star high heeled ankle boots with scalloped edge elastic inserts. They are the perrrrfect color and shape and heel and everything. They remind me a little bit about these ones that I got with the square nose. They were so comfortable and great with Everything that I have worn them out in just a few months.
I know it such a shame to have such materialistic dreams, but these ones, OH these ones are simply going to make my life so much brighter!

S T A R S at Rodarte

Rodarte FW12 was for me all about the hair. The metal or silver stars in a bunch look so striking. Really nice how a classical bobline like this can be modern at the same time. The S T A R S are absolutely rocking this look!

Kimono-Bomber

This is my favorite look from the ACNE FW 12 collection. Burgundy Lack leather, with this Kimono-like Bomber jacket in this beautiful soft pink. And the shoes.....I would like to see a close up of those!

S I M P L E

This editorial is shot by Henrik Bulow for the Danish magazine COVER is STUNNING. I love the styling done by Emelie Johansson. The clean lines in this simple color scheme is so fresh. I am obsessed by SHIRTS lately, they can be so crispy and clean, and give you that feminine and nonchalant look. The key is just to keep it simple. You can wear a print once in a while......And when you do: go for the extra bold ones like seen on the last picture. Layer it up, as I would say. Wear a skirt over your trousers to give it this playful silouette!

C E L I N E

I am addicted to this color. I call it "this" color, because I don't have a name for it: SMASHING PINK, DAZZLING PINK, or the name of my new MAC lipstick: GIRL ABOUT TOWN. This color just makes everything OK. Seen at the resort collection from C E L I N E, and the C E L I N E bag spotted during NY fashionweek, JE TAIME!

Grey Melee

My Outfit of today....Please don't mind the headless pictures. Believe me, you do not want to see my sleepy head at the moment.. I somehow am inspired by jewelry implemented in clothes. This is a small scarf that I have bought at Topshop. It is a scarf necklace THING! I quite like it, only I am doubting the scarf rings, I might take those of....
Imagine to make this in real silver and with a bigger scarf. I wish I had time to experiment with that! This large sweater is by COS, I am living in it literally. Normally I am not really into wearing grey, but this mellee, looks somehow fresh. The belt is by Rika, a really versatile piece, I wear it with everything! Ciao!

Hey there Turtle!

I found this picture of this little ring collection. I have no clue from who they are, but all together they make such a nice party! Also this fragile knit, with the subtle colored slubyarns is lovely. So I say: Bon weekend little turtle! Ps. If someone knows from who these rings are, please let me know! LOVE

HELMUT LANG

 
It has been a while that I looked at a Helmut lang Collection and thought, ok now there is happening something. Maybe it is me, but I see a lot of leather popping up in the ready to wear collections. Leather in combination with non-leather, or how would you call it wovens and knits!
This collection to me still is very conservative, but I see a slightly more edgy feel coming up. The sky high suede pointy boots are so good. Worn in just the right way, that you hardly see were the boot stops and were the trousers begin. The rest of the collection has a sort of nonchalance, which I like. The hair of the models looks great. My NONCHALANCE longing for this season's pieces begins....

Surrealistic Approach

For me this season Alexander Wang's FW12 collection was all about the bottom parts. These shoes......what can I say about these shoes other than MARVELOUS! The whole collection is in Black, Milk and Burgundy, but used in many different textures. The Mesh is something that we have seen from this designer also in previous collections, but now he has taken it to another level! Meshed stockings and Meshed leather tops! 

This silhouette with the cropped trousers; Baggy but slimmer at the bottom, are so me! It really puts the accent on the ankle and draws attention to these GRAND shoes! I am sorry but Ialmost want to end all me sentences with an explanation mark, it is just such an exciting collection!

"a surrealistic approach to fabric manipulation," as he explained in a preview. "It's this idea of shrink-wrap, lamination, covering up and lacquering." Nearly every surface seemed to have a slick sheen or gloss. There is washed leather with shiny accents and also the washed leather trousers with the suede is really rocking. I also absolutely like the a-symetrical sky high splits in the skirts and also in the jackets. LOVE!

Balenciaga in a bottle

 
I just really love this advertisement with Charlotte Gainsburg for the Balenciaga Fragance L'essence. I am a big fan of her personal work as an actrice and as a singer. I think with her, it is either you like her or you don't, there is no middle way. I like her for sure, there is something fascinating in her face. She is fragile, feminine and she has something masculine as well. Bringing her together with Balenciaga is just a match made in heaven.
