MICHAEL KORS PRE-FALL 2014

Michael Kors

My opinion about collection released so way in advanced has been recently shaken from the ground by Michael Kors's Pre-Fall 2014 (transseasonal does sounds better) Collection. His sneakers, brooches and chic street wise tomboy looks instantly caught my attention. This borrowed from the boys trend is not new but Kors took it to the next level.

BUZZ WORTHY

In the festive mood we all tend to find ourselves whenever Christmas is approaching I have 
to stop for a moment at Lanvin and Alber Elbaz buzzing jams. The master of modern glamour 
showed me that too much is never enough. It is a matter of ingredients in the end and Alber's ones
have wings this season and pearls, and letters, and colorful stones.

GIVENCHY SPRING/SUMMER 2014 CAMPAIGN

When Mert & Markus put their camera at work, the world stops and stares. When Riccardo Tisci 
picks his female models for his campaigns, the world takes notice. Make no mistake: if the woman chosen by the designer is not yet an icon, he turns her into one. All that being said, for Givenchy's S/S 2014 Campaign, Tisci stopped at the one and only Erykah Badu. So stop, stare and notice.

THE DREAM BAG


Under no circumstances, this is not a fortune cookie for Christmas. This is my latest bag obsession.
Beyound a regular bag, Celine's minimalistic Berlingot is a contemporary piece of art, surprisingly inspired 
by the pyramid candy. Its texture is omnipresent on the catwalk, its unique shape that features two zippers on opposites sides makes it even more interesting and desirable.

go thru her collections, follow her projects and her activity as well.

BORN READY


You probably know Bruce Weber as the photographer of erotica. I only became familiar with his work not because of this famous status but because of his dogs and after that, because his distinctive way of surprising the moment. Always casual, always American inspired, always playful. Even if his portfolio includes portraits with celebrities both men and women, the way he redefined the male beauty ideal along his career is peerless. 
His All American series of books reveal a very personal and original version of America and the latest one, "All-American Volume Thirteen: Born Ready" celebrates individuals whose risk-taking and personal vision set them apart from the crowd. The limited edition released in only 5000 copies is available now at Colette.

There is something magical about Christian Louboutin's shoes. They always seem to tell a story. They are jewelry on heels. On 120 mm heels to be more precise. And if the heart wants what the heart wants, Louboutin knows his way to women's heart.
All that being said, here is another masterpiece signed Christian Louboutin.

FUTURE PERFECT


2014 suddenly looked promising at the moment I laid my eyes on the Celine 2014 Resort collection signed by Phoebe Philo. I don't know how the rest of you received the S/S 2014 collection but what she did with the Resort one made me remember what Celine is all about.

HIGH EMBELLISHMENTS


With my last strengths, since I am stuck at home feeling super sick and drinking only lemon juice mixed with honey (a proven recipe against the worst cold one could ever have), I am trying to focus on some of my favorite fall embellishments. My arm candy favorites.

THE NEW CLASSICS

and to own, mix and wear all season long.
