From left to right: Look 3, Look 10 and Look 12

An ode to both seventies and our modern times is what you see and get from the latest
 Calvin Klein Collection resort 2015. To this impeccable formulation, Francisco Costa added minimalist color blocking, architectural embellishments and high rich texture to get one of the most winning resort
 collections, available now for a limited period of time at MODA OPERANDI.

BEAUTY CUES. E.COUDRAY.


I may have an obsession with roses, I can't even cut out one from my own little garden but that never stopped me from wearing a perfume and a body cream, scented with the lovely flower. 
The rose has a well established place in the fragrance arsenal but when its powers are doubled by the ones of the Iris, well... things get a little bit crazy. You end up like me, wearing two beauty products
 at the same time. In my defense, I would like to state that the Iris Rose is signed by E.Coudray Paris, a French label that exist since 1822.

3 FROM 1. THE SHAPE OF THINGS TO COME.

From left to right: Look 18, Look 14 and Look 19

Always fascinating, ELLERY is the Australian label that struck you not only because its contemporary 
designs, but mostly because artistic approach to which it adds just that right amount of
modern elegance. Hard to believe that in our days someone finds tine to also tell a story
through the clothes it creates but Kym Ellery does. The designer that has sharpened her skills at
Central St. Martins, now mavens the audience media as well, with her breathtaking creation.
I declare myself completely in love with the Ivory Infinity dress, part of the Look 14 
and available now at MODA OPERANDI.

BEAUTY CUES. MISTER MARVELOUS.


The very first Mister Marvelous featured hair stylist Christiaan Houtenbos. The renowned character is just like the perfume dedicated to him: like nothing else, exquisite and with a bit of strangeness
 (how I like the sound of that).
To my delight, recently, BYREDO took the famous Eau de Perfume, gave it a spin and placed the result in form of an Eau de Cologne, in a bigger container, with a top, heart and base as follows: Mandarin Leaves, Neroli Flower/ Green Lavender, Bamboo/ Green Lavender, Bamboo.

BEAUTY CUES. THE 50 UV PROTECTION .



Despite the fact that all of us should use a UV protective cream all year long, only when summer comes we kind of remember that this might be a good time to either pull out from the cabinet the one we forgot about and purchased on our last ski trip or simply do the smart thing and go straight to our favorite
beauty store and purchase the best one out there. Of course, in most of the cases, the hardest part 
of the job is selecting the one that won't clung our pores, matches our skin type and offers the best protection
but somehow, this is not the case of La Mer's SPF 50 UV Protecting Fluid
I could say many things about La Mer but when it comes to this label, is just like one of my friends said a long time ago: find what works and stick to it.

Find out more about La Mer's Sun products right here.

THE DREAM BUY

MAWI, Geometric gemstone necklace with crystal leaves and spikes

Usually, behind the success story of an accessory label we tend to find a woman. Usually. But MAWI is anything but usual. It is successful, but not usual. And following this path, behind its success story
there is not only a woman but also a man.

TAGGED. THE STYLE DETAIL.

HERMÈS S/S 2014

Christophe Lemaire is not best known for jungle inspired prints but luckily for us, this SS he decided to give them a go. Influenced by Henri Rousseau, he took his pendulous flora, placed it in a jungle set among some more strict yet easy  and floaty looks, and gave us even more reasons to thing about taking the trend and work it a our everyday lives.
