Lanvin x Ladurée

One of my favourite places in Paris…Ladurée, place to be for the best macaroons!

Due to the latest collaboration between Lanvin and Ladurée, shops have been decorated in Lanvin-style and a special stylish box has been created with 8 macaroons in 3 colours, all bubblegum-flavoured.

Lana Del Rey’s second H&M Campaign

Luxury design firm Mulberry has already named a bag after her and following a first Campaign in September for H&M, Lana Del Rey is now back in a second Autumn Campaign.

She poses against a classic Rollys Royce in a blue-coloured environment (remember Blue Velvet) while wearing cosy knitwear and warm coats.

Collar Magnificence

Opulence rules! This Fall opulence, baroque, brilliance and embellishment find their place again.

Combine this trend with collars and you get perfect statement collars!

I really like these collars, decorated with pearls, feathers, jewels, lace or just metal-plated and you can easily combine them with your black (gold, white,…) tops and dresses.

They are a perfect way to ‘renovate’ your wardrobe!

Maison Martin Margiela for H&M campaign shots

First images of the Maison Martin Margiela for H&M collection have arrived!

The pictures have been taken by British artist Sam Taylor-Johnson on the streets of Paris.

The avant-garde Belgian House went back to the archives and showed its typical MMM signature with re-editions of some house classics.

Tod’s Signature Spring 2013 Collection

Last week Tod’s presented its new Signature Spring 2013 Collection at the Italian Embassy in Paris in a party hosted by Tod’s CEO Diego Della Valle.

The guest of honour was Scarlett Johansson and several personalities from the world of media, economy and politics were invited.

The Signature Collection is a tribute to the footprint of the iconic and classic Gommino, which is engraved in the leather bags.

For me the bags belong to the ‘New Classics’ bags as they are elegant, beautiful and forever…

The store offers several Baguette styles, including New Collection, Limited Editions, Vintage, Accessories and the Fendi Baguette book.

And then there was Chanel…

Karl Lagerfeld impressed once more with a very beautiful and young collection during Paris Spring 2013 RTW Runway Show.

A-lines and boleros dominated the silhouettes and big but elegant accessories embellished with pearls completed the looks.

Once again it had been confirmed “Pearls (and diamonds) are a girl’s best friend”!

Men’s Jacket must-have for this Fall

As seen on several Runway shows for Fall Winter 2012 the double-breasted jacket is back.

Just a small selection how it could look like (Gucci,Valentino)…
