I have to say it, but I confess that I am a much bigger fan of Alexander Wang’s work at Balenciaga than at his own label. The main reason for it is that he seems to invest  his whole expertise on craftsmanshift, his finest work, attention to details, and the most futuristic clear-lined designs at the fashion house, whereas he seems to put less thought and effort at his eponymous label, because –let’s face it— sweatshirts with a ‘Parental Advisory Explicit Content’ print on them are hardly ‘groundbreaking’.

The more time passes by, the more his collections grow on me and the more I conceive how amazing all his designs are. What I love the most is that, although still luxurious and very Balenciaga, his designs are still representative of his trademark style, while at the same time being fashion forward and avant-garde.

Wishing you all a lovely Sunday. x

Outfit | Same but different

Fashion LandscapeWearing: Machine Jeans Distressed Overalls c/o (shop similar here and here), ASOS Cropped Top, Ray-Ban Wayfarer Sunglasses, Birkenstock ‘Arizona’ Sandals (also here), and a Proenza Schouler Bag

I was wearing this some days ago, while it was still warmer than now. I like to keep things relatively simple and comfortable whenever I am wearing overalls, so I just went for my usual black-and-white combo and added Birkenstock.

I have some projects coming up which I am excited to show you, but more of that soon. x

DE

Ich trug dieses Outfit vor einigen Tagen, als es noch wärmer war. Immer, wenn ich Latzhosen trage, kombiniere ich sie relativ einfach und bequem. Deswegen trage ich heute meine übliche Schwarz-Weiß kombi und dazu Birkenstock.

In den nächsten Tagen habe ich ein Paar Projekten vor, worauf ich mich schon sehr freue. Bald werde ich sie euch zeigen.

ES

Ésto es lo que llevaba hace algunos días, cuando aun hacía algo de calor. Me encanta mantener todo relativamente simple y cómodo cuando llevo peto, por eso he recurrido a mi fórmula infalible de blanco y negro y a eso simplemente le he agregado birkestock.

Tengo un par de proyectos en los próximos días de los cuales estoy muy emocionada. Pero os mostraré a lo que me refiero pronto.

Interior Design | Cozy Corners

Fashion LandscapeFashion Landscape Fashion Landscape Fashion Landscape Fashion Landscape Fashion Landscape Fashion Landscape Fashion Landscape Fashion Landscape Fashion Landscape Fashion Landscape  Fashion Landscape Fashion LandscapePhoto Sources: Stylizimo, The Design Chaser, Ferm Living, Homesick, My Scandinavian Home, Nordic Days, Tumblr, Pinterest

Today’s interior post is all about details that can make an ordinary spot in your living room a cozy corner. What makes a corner cozy? I would say:

1. Lighting. Adding different kinds of lightning such as candles, standing and wall lamps, or even vintage oil lamps.

2. Textures. Playing with different textures such as fake fur rugs, blankets, or cushions and different materials such as leather in sofas and chairs as well as wood in side tables and others.

3. Graphic Prints. Adding graphic prints does not only add a playful touch to any space, but it also makes it look more inviting and depending on how you place it, it can also create the illusion of a bigger room. They can be in cushions, blankets, rugs, framed graphic posters, or even in wallpapers.

4. Plants. Let’s face it: Greenery gives life to any room, so if you are not the kind that can take care of a plant due to lack of time or any other reason, then simply get cacti or any other plant that does not need so much care. There are plenty of options out there.

Outfit | Thigh High Side Slit

Fashion LandscapeFashion Landscape Fashion LandscapeFashion LandscapeWearing: ASOS Thigh High Slit Pencil Skirt (shop similar herehere, here, here, herehere, here, here, here, here, here, and here), Zara Draped Blouse(similar here), & Other Stories Sunglasses(similar here and here), Zara Suede Court Pumps(find similar here, herehere, here, here, here, here, and here), and a Sophie Hulme Bag (budget option here)

May I present you my  own version of the ‘Angelina leg pose’, which I was kind of forced to make in order to show this skirt’s cut, so go easy on me.

Last season’s Altuzarra show was by a far stretch one of my favorites last season and this look is obviously inspired by it. There something so sexy yet understated about side slit skirts, that I simply can’t have enough of and I have no idea why the high street has been so slow in producing similar models. I had to buy this one on Ebay, because I found no affordable options anywhere else. Anyhow, they are here to stay since they also made an appearance on multiple shows this Fashion Week. I won’t complain. x

DE

Ich präsentiere euch meine eigene Version des “Angelinas rechtes Bein”. Ich war dazu gezwungen, diese Pose zu machen, da ich den Schnitt des Rocks zeigen muss, deswegen solltet ihr mich entschuldigen.

Altzuzarras Kollektion der letzen Saison war eine meiner Favoriten und selbstverständlich ist dieser Look davon inspiriert. Es gibt etwas sehr sexy an Röcken mit seitlichem Schlitz, wovon ich nicht genug haben kann. Ich habe keine Ahnung warum die High-Street Filialen so langsam gewesen sind, um solche Röcke herzustellen. Nirgendwo habe ich ähnliche und erschwingliche Modele gefunden und deswegen musste ich diesen Rock auf Ebay kaufen. Trotzdem werden diese Röcke nächste Saison bei uns bleiben, da sie in vielen Kollektionen während Fashion Weeks erschienen. Darüber beschwere ich mich nicht.

ES

Os presento mi propia versión de “La Pierna Derecha de Angelina Jolie”. Tuve que posar de esta forma ya que debo mostrar el corte de la falda, así que no riáis demasiado de mí. ;)

La colección de Altuzarra la temporada pasada fue una de mis favoritas y obviamente me he inspirado en ella con este look. Hay algo tan sexy sin parecer vulgar en las faldas con apertura alta lateral de lo cual no me aburro. No tengo idea por qué tiendas como Zara y Mango se han tardado tanto en fabricar modelos parecidos. Estuve meses buscando y nunca encontré nada barato y similar, por lo cual tuve que recurrir a Ebay. De todas formas, estas faldas no irán a ninguna parte  ya que aparecieron por doquier en los shows de Fashion Week para la próxima temporada. No me quejo en lo absoluto ya que me encantan.

Outfit | Denim on Denim + Camel

This season it’s not only all about all shades of grey, khaki, and beige, but also about camel. While my colour palette consists mostly of black, white, and grey, I am digging camel trenchcoats, camel knits, camel skirts, just about anything and everything camel and what I love the most about it is how amazing it looks in combination with blue denim, black, and grey. I am gonna try all these combinations this season, so expect more of that soon. x

DE

Die Trendfarben der Saison sind nicht nur Grau, Khaki, und Beige, sondern auch Camel. Und obwohl meine Farben-Palette meistens aus Schwarz, Weiß und Grau besteht, liebe ich momentan alles camelfarbige, wie z.B. Trenchcoats, Pullover, Röcke, Strickjacken, etc. Was ich am meisten an dieser Farbe liebe, ist, dass sie so unglaublich toll in Kombination mit blauem Denim, Schwarz, und Grau aussieht. Ich werde diese Saison all diese Kombinationen tragen und ich werde sie euch bald zeigen.

ES

Los colores de la temporada son definitivamente el gris, caqui, beige y, sobre todo, el camel. Aunque mi armario consiste más que todo de blanco, negro y gris, debo confesar que me encanta el camel y todo tipo de prendas en ese color, como por ejemplo gabardinas, abrigos, jerseys, faldas, etc. Lo que más me encanta del color es que se ve increíble en combinación con tela vaquera azúl, negro y gris. Voy a probar todas estas combinaciones esta temporada así que podéis esperar más de eso pronto.

Vogue Russia September 2014

Stylist: Olga Dunina

Makeup: Justine Purdue
Model: Ophelie Guillermand

OK, so this is one of the most amazing editorials I have ever seen. All things knitted in a nutshell and above you can see all the season’s best designer knitwear. If you are a fan of cozy and oversized style, this editorial might just be right up your alley. However, what I mostly like about it is not only the styling, but the colour coordination, which is a colour composition artwork per se. Grey and camel is the most brilliant combination of colors and the most appropiate for fall and winter.

And what about Ophelie Guillermand? She has such a rare and alluring kind of beauty and amazing features. I have a HUGE girl crush on her. x

Outfit | Tao Tee

EN

My dear friend Sophia sent me one of the t-shirts of her collection with different printed messages, which consist of what taoism defines as the “Steps to Happiness”. If you are a firm believer in Feng Shui and arrange your furniture and interior in need to harmonize with the environment you live in, wearing a t-shirt with a positive message is basically the same principle.

I for one need to be reminded of the obvious all the time, being it through moodboards, posters, notes etc., so this “Smile More” tee does the same trick for uptight me. There is infinite wisdom and truth in Eastern philosophies and practices, which is why it’s something I’ve always been interested in. The tee is made of organic cotton and has the perfect slouchy fit. You can purchase it and others with different taoistic messages here.

DE

Meine liebe Freundin Sophia hat mir vor einiger Zeit dieses T-Shirt aus ihrer Kollektion geschickt. Das besondere daran ist, dass es hinten mit der taoistischen Weisheit “Schritte zum Glück” bedruckt ist. Wenn ihr an Feng Shui glaubt und wenn ihr eure Möbel einrichtet, so dass ihr mit eurer Umgebung harmonisiert, dann ist es im Prinzip nichts anderes,  als dieses T-Shirt mit einer positiven Botschaft zu tragen.

Ich bin eine jener Personen, die immer an das Positive erinnert werden muss, auch wenn es logisch und selbstverständlich ist. Deshalb ist diese “Smile More” Botschaft perfekt für mich. Es gibt unendliche Weisheit und Warheit in östlicher Philosophie und deswegen hat sie mich immer interessiert. Das T-Shirt ist aus organischer Baumwolle und hat die perfekte und bequeme passform. Ihr könnt es und andere mit verschieden Botschaften hier bestellen.

ES

Mi querida amiga Sophia me ha enviado esta camiseta de su colección con diferentes mensajes que consisten en lo que el taoísmo define como “Los Pasos a la Felicidad”. Si vosotras creéis en el Feng Shui y colocáis vuestro mobiliario de tal forma que estéis en armonía con vuestro ambiente, pues entonces llevar estas camisetas con mensajes positivos es el mismo principio.

Yo soy una de esas personas que necesita ser recordada de todas las cosas obvias y lógicas todo el tiempo, ya sea por medio de afiches y notas y es por ello que ésta camiseta con el mensaje “Sonríe Más” me viene como anillo al dedo, ya que soy muy nerviosa y tensa. Hay una infinita sabiduría y verdad en las filosofías orientales y por ello siempre me han interesado. La camiseta está hecha de algodón orgánico y es muy cómoda. La podéis ordenar junto a otras con distintos mensajes taoístas aquí.

We are experiencing here really crazy weather. One day it’s 9°C and the next it’s 27°C, hence the outfit with bare legs and still on summer mode. Not complaining, though. I am gonna really take advantage of days like these to wear my strappy heels and allow my legs outside for the last time this year. Couldn’t resist this H&M shirt dress which was immediately sold out and it’s something I wouldn’t normally buy, because it’s flared and too girly. However, I think life is too short to stick and to religiously commit to one single style and I am a girl after all who wants to have fun with clothes. x

DE

Derzeit ist das Wetter verrückt. Heute kann es 9°C sein und morgen 27°C, deshalb trage ich das kurze Kleidchen mit Riemchensandaletten. Ich beschwere mich nicht und ich muss sagen, dass ich solche sommerlichen Tage ausnützen werde, um meine Beine zum letzten Mal dieses Jahr frei zu lassen. Dem Kleid von H&M Trend konnte ich einfach nicht widerstehen und es war natürlich sofort ausverkauft. Es ist ein Kleidungstück, das ich normalerweise nicht kaufen würde, da es viel zu weiblich ist, aber ich glaube, das Leben ist viel zu kurz und man sollte sich nicht auf nur einen einzigen Stil festlegen, sondern einfach Spaß mit Mode haben.

ES

 Estamos experimentando un clima loco, el cual un día tenemos 9°C y al siguiente 27°C. Lo que véis es el resultado de un día caluroso y por ello llevo el vestido corto y sandalias. No me quejo y debo decir que continuaré aprovechando estos últimos días calurosos para permitir que mis piernas disfruten del aire libre por última vez este año. No pude resistir comprar este vestido de H&M Trend, que, por cierto, se agotó inmediatamente. Y digo que no pude resistirlo por que, como ya sabéis, no acostumbro a llevar piezas demasiado femeninas como ésta, pero pienso que la vida es demasiado corta para llevar un sólo estilo siempre y religiosamente. Después de todo soy una chica y me gusta divertirme con la ropa. Os deseo un buen fin de semana.

Outfit | Jacquemus

Fashion LandscapeFashion LandscapeFashion LandscapeWearing: Jacquemus Asymmetrical Skirt (shop similar here, here, herehere, here, herehere, here, and here), Rag & Bone Crop Top(find similar here and here), Zara Blazer (buy alternatives herehere, herehere, here, and here), Zara Ankle Strap Sandals (similar here, herehere, here, and here), Ray-Ban Wayfarers, and a Proenza Schouler Bag (smaller version here)

EN

Jacquemus is, without a doubt, one of my absolute favorite designers. His creations breathe and have a life of their own. They are minimalistic, clean, structural, and above all, extremely playful and with a sense of humor.

This skirt is one of those architectural and unique pieces that you see and know that it will be something you will always cherish in your wardrobe, and  I was lucky enough to purchase it with over 50% off during the sales last season. The asymmetrical design on the hem is exactly how I would have designed the skirt myself.

One of my biggest dreams is to someday launch my own line, whether independently or in collaboration with a brand and this look is somewhat how I would love it to look like. I already started sketching a while ago and I’ll show you my creations one of these days. x

DE

Jacquemus ist ohne Frage einer meiner Lieblings-Designer. Seine Kreationen haben ihr eigenes Leben. Sie sind minimalistisch, mit einer klaren Struktur, spielerisch, und mit einem Hauch Humor.

Dieser Rock ist eins jener Kleidungsstücke, die man sieht und sofort weiß, dass man es immer schätzen wird. Glücklicherweise habe ich ihn mit über 50% Rabatt in der letzten Saison gekauft. Das architektonische und asymmetrische Design am Saum ist genau, wie ich einen Rock selbst entworfen hätte.

Ich gestehe, dass es einer meiner größten Träume ist, eines Tages meine eigene Kollektion herauszubringen. Entweder selbständig oder in Zusammenarbeit mit einer Marke würde ich gerne einzigartige Kleidungsstücke entwerfen und dieser Look sieht irgendwie ähnlich aus, wie ich diese Kollektion gestalten würde. Ich habe schon einige Illustrationen gezeichnet und ich werde sie euch eines Tages zeigen.

ES

Jacquemus es, sin duda alguna, uno de mis diseñadores favoritos. Sus creaciones tienen vida propia. Son minimalistas, con cortes claros, estructurales, y más que todo con un gran sentido de humor.

Esta falda es una de esas piezas únicas que uno ve y sabe immediatamente que serán algo que uno siempre atesorará en su armario. Tuve la suerte de comprarla con más del 50% de descuento durante la temporada pasada. El diseño de corte asimétrico es exactamente como yo hubiese diseñado la falda.

Confieso que uno de mis sueños es el lanzamiento de mi propia línea de ropa, ya sea independientemente o en colaboración con alguna marca con la que me identifique. Este look es como me gustaría que la colección se viera. Hace meses comencé a dibujar ilustraciones de esta colección y uno de estos días os las mostraré.
