I guess we are in a little post-and pre fashion week panic in terms of finding the right bag that ‘swallows’ all the necessities such as laptops, iPads a bunch of origami invites and a pair of comfy shoes for the end of the day. While busy searching blogs, I bumped into the brilliant 3.1 Phillip Lim pre-fall 2013 collection and I couldn’t resist sharing with you some of my favourite snapshots of this sight-pleasing simplicity that the collection carries. The range of accessories include hip and chic pieces inspired by tough bikers, and urban allure through the eye of the statement-making Phillip Lim. I particularly appreciate the ease of achieving such beautiful toughness by cleverly dealing with colour and texture that flawlessly completes an outfit but it is also a functional piece for your day-to-day essentials. The collection discovers an array of cool, while staying certainly loyal to the Lim-like woman and yet satisfying sartorial cravings in terms of accessories such as bags, shoes, sunnies and iPad cases. Fashion Week season, here we come!

Ich fürchte, wir befinden uns in einer kleinen Post und Pre Fashion Week Panik, was das Finden der richtigen Handtasche angeht, die alles Nötige ‘schluckt’, wie zum Beispiel Laptops, iPads, einen Haufen Origami Einladungen und bequeme Schuhe für das Ende des Tages.  (more…)

What’s your favourite accessories-type, ladies; shoes, jewellery or bags? Either of them, you’ll probably turn out to be a bag-lover as you discover the brand new ‘Le Dix’ model from Balenciaga. The dark-toned Calfskin Cartable bag is the prettiest piece of Alexander Wang’s first handbag collection for the Parisian label. ‘The name, which is French for ten, alludes to the fashion house’s original address at 10 Avenue George V and the handbag having the ‘perfect ten’ in terms of craftsmanship.’ The beautifully structured, minimalist piece of the line of satchels is the perfect choice for the ladylike-but-modern woman, who wants simple yet functional quality in her wardrobe. I’m sure that these bags will not fail to toy with your heart however the trick is that some of us got used to the Balenciaga-like edgy glam, so decide it on your own whether Alexander’s aesthetic isn’t too simplistic and minimalistic. As for us, we couldn’t resist wearing it! What about you? PS The video was shot by Toby McFarlan Pond under the artistic direction of Wang to a song titled ‘Light Foot’ by Terry Devine-King.

Mädels, was ist euer Lieblingsaccessoire: Schuhe, Schmuck oder Taschen? Egal welcher Typ ihr seid, ihr werdet höchstwahrscheinlich zur Taschen-Liebhaberin, wenn ihr das brandneue ‘Le Dix’ Model von Balenciaga entdeckt. Die dunkle Kalbsleder Cartable Tasche ist das schönste Stück aus Alexander Wangs erster Taschenkollektion für das Pariser Label. (more…)

I’m sure that the following statement won’t be valid for all of you guys due to the international readership, but I do feel that Autumn is coming. The nights are a little chilly, the summer breeze often brings rain instead and I feel comfortable wearing biker boots or denim jacket, so I guess it’s time for a little wardrobe inspiration for the colder days this time from Mango. Victoria’s Secret darling, Miranda Kerr literally rocks the edgy looks in Mango‘s Fall 2013 lookbook, thank to the leather-stud-checques match. The whole collection suggests the ‘lets get the grunge chic mood’ in a mix of plaid, denim and floral prints styled by Geraldine Saglio. The images were shot by Inez Van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin with NYC as her backdrop. “I had a great time shooting the Fall/Winter campaign for Mango with Inez and Vinoodh,” she said to ELLE. “They are an amazing team to work with – we had such a good time together. The clothing is especially fun this season with a punk‐inspired edge.” Happy shopping!

Ich bin sicher, das folgende Statement wird wegen der internationalen Leser nicht für alle von euch zutreffen, aber ich fühle den Herbst nahen. (more…)

How to throw a girly party?

So ladies, the question is up; how to throw a proper girly party? We much like random things, but there are moments in life that need careful planning – and such party definitely belongs to the latter. As we talked together with the girls at SilkSoFine about the topic, we sort of agreed that each of us starts with collecting inspiration (a theme, a colour, a taste, a place or dress code). I remember doing a real girly gathering a couple of summers ago and my fantasy had no limits. Since then, we now have such inspirational sources as the beloved Pinterest or Etsy, where you can find all sort of themes and fancy DIY ideas (which we can’t stop loving). Party planning should always be fun in the first place – creative decoration, good music and thoughtful preparation are the most important parts of a successful party, besides the proper group of guests. Now it’s time for a proper summer-ending garden-party with balloons, champagne and colourful finger-food, so we’ve gathered some of our favourite must-have items for your (and our) next event! Don’t forget to share your ideas and experience with us, we would love to hear your stories!;)

Also Ladies, die Frage ist: Wie schmeißt man eine richtige mädchenhafte Party? Wir mögen gerne einfache Dinge, aber es gibt Momente im Leben, die eine sorgfältige Planung benötigen – und eine solche Party gehört definitiv zu letzteren. (more…)
