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…)

Dutch model Cato Van Ee is starring the July 2013 lookbook of fashion label Mango and yet very literally rocking the leather biker jackets, combat boots and ripped denims. Since the festival season is constantly on we all want to add a sense of cool and edgy to our summer wardrobe, and that’s exactly what Mango has for us. Since the Kurt Cobain era I tend to think that blonde woman dressed in ripped jeans and chequered shirts are the hottest on Earth hence – in my opinion – Mango couldn’t have found a better model than Cato Van Ee who’s previously walked the runway from Miu Miu through Prada to Marni. Besides the pastels and sheer fabrics the grunge effect is definitely back this summer in terms of ripped and worn-out denim shorts and skirts, black leathers, boots matched with minis. How do you guys feel about it?

Rick Owens‘ American designer’s style has been many times described as ‘glamour-meets-grunge’ and his Fall 2013 collection definitely lived up to that. The designer showed appealingly direct and simply beautiful pieces in layered and oversized proportions. The collection delivered both high-aesthetics, plenty of dark romance, gloomy colour palette and some drama – boosted by the enormous and windblown hair-style. What I frankly appreciate about Owens is that he stands still – his aesthetic changes in only the smallest, subtlest ways from show to show, while never getting any boring. Less feminine and closer to his menswear line than ever before is what he created for the season. The kimono sleeves and high neck fastenings referred to Japanese traditional wear, as did the braided leather weaved into jackets. It was all about volume and contrast in the textures, proportions, styling: the big sturdy boots against the skinny legs. I guess he believes in unconventional beauty, and does it rightfully.

Rick Owens’ amerikanischer Designerstil wurde schon oftmals als ‘Glamour-trifft-auf-Grunge’ beschrieben und seine Herbst 2013 Kollektion bringt dies definitiv zur Geltung. (more…)
