RE Photo Inspo of the week!

Image

Landed and settled back in New York for fashion week we let ourselves look for
different influences this time around. I have always been a great fan of Nick Knight and his art. Recently he released a photo selection with a variety of designers participating in a
shoot for V magazine.
While we work on our reports I wanted to share some of my favourite shots from the shoot here in at Milk studios in LA.148453_960n 148455_960n 148446_960n 148448_960n 148447_960n 148443_960n 148442_960n 148450_960n 148454_960n 148451_960n

Pop of Blue Accents SS15

Image

Black and beige are the classic staple colors for sure, but I have always considered blue to be one of the top candidates to complement the staples. Blue, being the color of denim has a natural home in the staple closet and has always showed up in one tone or another on the runway.

Spring/Summer 2015 is no exception, and this season’s shades of blue range from almost turquoise (scuba blue) to beautifully saturated “classic blue” which surprisingly has made it feel updated and fun again (classic blue has a tendency to appear in a marine setting which I think has gone and come back one time too many). This inspires lovely new combos of blue where the shades can be mixed and matched in an endless number of trendy combos as well as worn as a pop accent on shoes or handbags.

Below we’ve collected a number of examples where these shades of blue can be found on the runway and on the high street. As you can see it pairs beautifully with darker shades of blue, classic white summer pieces, light gray and even matt deep red lip tones. So dont be afraid to pick it up in your makeup!

I’ll wear blue as a splash of color with a clutch, or in a funky t-shirt print with some black pants or jeans. I’m also keen to see if I can find a summer sandal with a dusty blue contrast color. I’ll keep you posted!

OOTD – Layer Cake

Image

Simply put, in cold weathers you layer. However if you care about what you are wearing more than anything, you are probably finding ways of doing so in all ways possible.
I have always been a fan of long sleeve. Long sleeve t-shirt, sweater, dress pretty much anything that you wear on your upper body will most likely be with a long sleeve. Until l came across that perfect tuxedo dress that just so happened to be with NO sleeve. The horror. Obviously it had to be bought and figured out later, so my idea for this including considering the weather was to implement a warm cashmere piece in an earth tone to slow the sexiness down a little bit. However if you want to avoid being mistaken for a librarian wearing that kind of layering, something needs to be added to this look. So I went for my to-go-to safe card which is leather, suede or faux leather 😉 . You could never go wrong with a leather Balenciaga anything so pants and clutch its was.

INSPIRATIONAL SPRING TRENDS SS15

Image

We have just entered the new year and we are finally starting to see a new vision for spring  2015. There will always be a few obvious themes for the spring season such as pastels florals and most likely flowy fabrics and whites, but this time we would like to focus on those trends that are more likely to become hot further ahead in time (maybe even SS16).
I have always been a fan of a futuristic and very innovative look and for this spring we are  seeing a very interesting iridescent and transperant element on the runway, in the accessory department and in jewelry.
The thought of wearing a plastic coat or a corset for a night out might not sound so appealing, although I believe that this trend will become a great outlet for us “taste makers” to express ourselves and have fun with eccentric fashion!
