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!

As much we don’t like predictability that much we crave some sort of consistency that among others, Stella McCartney masters. She knows exactly what works best for the women who fall for her designs that are merging the attributes of simple, clean, feminine-sporty and vegan. The pieces she creates season after season are so called creative layers, embracing her signature style of sharp tailoring, and adding a natural confidence and sporty femininity to the wearer. Her Spring/Summer 2013 accessories are designs that no one can say no to; it brings optimism, colour, youth and life into our wardrobes. The luxe appeal range includes chain-trimmed falabella bags in the shades of metallics made out of faux leather and half-wedges with tropical prints and transparent twist. Mixing masculine and feminine references has always been a speciality of hers, aiming the Stella woman who is naturally sexy, naturally confident and modern in mind with a crave for a constant effortless flair.
So sehr wir Vorhersehbarkeit nicht mögen, so sehr lieben wir ein wenig Beständigkeit, die unter anderem von Stella McCartney gemeistert wird. Sie weiß genau, was am besten zu den Frauen passt, die sich in ihre Designs verlieben, welche die Attribute einfach, gradlinig, feminin sportlich und vegan verschmelzen lassen. (more…)
As much as the Los Angeles glam attracts us that much it’s tossing with it’s overly commercial and materialist morality – but there are a few exceptions…and such great ones. The sister design duo – Maryam and Marjan Malakpour who are artists in multiple mediums – behind the accessories label NewbarK, enchants its customers with pieces that are handcrafted in Los Angeles out of the best leathers, canvas, felt, and suede, thus reflect edgy sophistication. Our favourite Spring/Summer 2013 collection includes simple designs: flat shoes, handbags and jewellery while providing a stylish alternative for the contemporary woman on the go. The monochrome texture-clash and oversize designs perfectly demonstrate our deepest desires when it comes to accessories – of course all impeccably crafted from prime materials. Luckily, NewbarK continues to constantly expand, but their design aesthetic always remains intact: clean, sophisticated, timeless – exactly as we like it.
So sehr der Los Angeles Glam uns anzieht, so sehr stößt er uns mit der übertriebenen kommerziellen und materialistischen Art auch ab – aber es gibt auch einige Ausnahmen…und was für wunderbare. (more…)
