I had been waiting too long for the time to arrive that this gorgeous Stella McCartney jumpsuit would come out of my closet. Especially bought a few months ago for my best friend’s wedding in Rome, this silk satin dream with cut-outs decorated with tiny oranges in baby blue color was created for me from the very beginning, although Stella ignores the trivia.
Pared with my Jil Sander sling-backs and sprinkled with some crystal-cluttering, when I slip in it I insistently refuse to take it of.
Following the first post of my visit at Lanvin headquarters, here comes the second part that includes almost all the accessories from the Lanvin Summer 2013 collection. Python pumps in metallics, gorgeous shoulder bags and tiny minaudieres and the famous Lanvin crystal jewels. Knock yourselves out.
For the new Spring-Summer 2013 collection, Christian Louboutin asked again Peter Lippmann to shoot the lookbook images. The inspiration this time is «fishing men» and the images are a realistic staging of Peter Lippmann’s idea.
I was recently asked by missbloom.gr, among other girls, to present my Christmas essentials. Since my wardrobe palette is rather boring with lots of blacks and blues, I usually add some color with my accessories, mainly shoes and jewelry. Pointy shoes, crystals and some luxury goodies like my Serge Lutens perfume or a good facial day creme is what got on my list.
I now take it a step further and make a xmas wish list.
This Stella McCartney light blue shirt dress is on top of my wish list, together with a pair of Jil Sander color-block sling backs, that I instantly fell in love with when we first met in March at Raf Simon’s very last fashion show for the house.
I love luxury paper. I keep collecting personal stationary since the age of 6. I also love birds. Can I ask Santa for this Bird Box by Bernard Maisner?
It includes post cards and statement cards with hand painted exotic birds *sigh* by Mr. Maisner himself.
The best way to wear a total denim outfit is escorted by a cluster of crystals. Mariaflora and me tried different combinations the other day and I ended up with a tiger necklace and a pair of bold earrings that I totally love.
All jewelry by Accessorize.
Last night at the private view of the famous A.N.G.E.L.O collection (which, as I mentioned before, opened its doors to public today), I fed my eyes and vintage hunger with the most beautiful looks of previous decades. Apart from the designer pieces, such as Celine, Jean-Paul Gaultier, Pucci, Chanel and Valentino just to mention a few, you can also find vintage treasures that don’t carry a precious signature, all in extremely good prices (trust me, I checked). A ride up to McArthurGlen Designer Outlet deserves to be ranked high into your next month’s t0-do list.
Riccardo Tisci introduces printed paisley motifs, across a variety of Givenchy’s men’s clothes and accessories.A bold version contrasts white and green whilst another appears in vintage army aircrafts intertwined in coloured kakhi paisley.
Fashion Director of Vogue Hellas Michael Pandos, in coordination with George C.Carabellas, owner of TR2 concept boutique, curated the creation of a capsule collection by five Greek designers. The result is a limited edition of unisex pieces (in consumer-fiendly prices), with the signature of some of the best names in greek fashion (Sotiris Georgiou, Dimitris Petrou, Katerina Psoma, Stathis Samantas and Chris P.), and it was presented yesterday at TR2 The Kolonaki edition, in another “Dolce Far Niente” Wednesday.
Small treats for summer holidays (or how to spend more time pampering yourself):
Precious Moroccanoilhair treatment: It smells like heaven and it’s the perfect not-oily oil (magic I tell you!) that I use e v e r y d a y. I’ll need psychological support when it’s finished.
T.E Pareo: Two girls make beautiful greek inspired pareos, of cotton mix fabrics and locally sourced materials. The ideal summer accessory to wear/ lie on/get dry. See here all the designs that will make your day.
Clarins Sun Wrinkle Control face cream 50+ and the perfect Korres Cooling after-sun gelwith edible yoghurt: your skin will love you for that.
Miu Miu just won’t stay still for a moment. This time the company launches a special accessories collection, made exclusively for selected stores in London, consisting of Bauletto bags, clutches, sandals, hairbands and brooches in hot hues of gold, bronze and silver.
“This season Riccardo Tisci presents an ankle shoe merging the details and the ergonomics of a high-top trainer with the characteristics of an oxford shoe. The idea morphs a basketball playground sneaker with an Italian gangster’s brogue.”
And that says almost everything about the new men shoes of Givenchy for next Fall!
My latest thrill would be it, big statement jewels with crystals, from those that you wear over a white long tank top and look all dressed up and ready to go. I made a selection of the greatest ones, the “fake” treasures that have nothing to be jealous of white gold and diamonds.
