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

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.

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.

As most of you know, I’m basically a ripped denim addict mostly because it makes an outfit instantly edgy and interesting, especially if you are wearing mostly basics. And if you got them in white: even better. Don’t ask me why I love it even more combined with a leather jacket and strappy sandals, but this is a combo I can’t have enough from. x

DE

Wie viele von euch schon gemerkt haben, bin ich süchtig nach zerrissenen Jeans. Der Grund dafür ist, dass sie ein Outfit automatisch interessant machen, insbesonders, wenn das Outift aus Basics besteht. Boyfriend Denim-Hosen  sind noch besser in Weiß und ich liebe die Kombination mit schwarzem Leder und Riemchen-Sandaletten. Ich kann einfach nicht genug davon haben.

ES

Como muchas de vosotras habéis notado, soy una adicta a los vaqueros rotos, más que todo por que hacen un outfit instantáneamente interesante y rockero, en especial si el conjunto consiste más que todo de piezas básicas. Y si los tenéis en blanco? Mejor aun. Me encanta la combinación de vaqueros blancos con una cazadora negra de piel y sandalias. Es una combinación que nunca me va a aburrir.

Outfit | The Perfect Not-So-Basic Biker Second Skin Skinny Jeans

Fashion LandscapeFashion Landscape240 Wearing: Topshop Biker Skinny Jeans c/o Topshop, Topshop Draped Blouse, H&M New Icons Leather Jacket(shop similar herehere, here, here, here, and here), Isabel Marant ‘Andrew’ Boots, Ray-Ban Wayfarer Sunglasses, and a Proenza Schouler Bag(the smaller version here)

EN

These jeans are exactly like this supercalifragilisticexpialidociously cool (and long) title describes them: Super comfty, super flattering, and with an unexpected twist in form of zippers. They are, by a far stretch, the best jeans I’ve ever had and only god knows how I’ve searched for them in the past two years.

While I agree with the idea of splurging on basics, it’s kinda hard to think about spending over 100 Euros in a pair of black skinny jeans, but this dilemma came to an end as soon as I spotted this edgy number from Topshop. The biker style and zipper details just makes it a stand out piece and the material is so soft, stretchy, and comfortable, which are the main reasons why they are the best jeans I’ve ever had. They fit like second skin from hip to ankle and there is no such slouchiness at the bottom as you often find in the high street. These are really like designer jeans, so I strongly recommend them.

It was a no-brainer to pair them with my new Isabel Marant booties and a leather biker jacket, so this is the result. Wishing you all an awesome week. x

P.S. They fit 100% true to size.

DE

Diese Skinny-Jeans sind genau wie der Titel dieses Posts sie beschreibt: Extrem bequem, extrem schmeichelnd, mit extrem coolen Details, einfach  perfekt. Sie sind die besten Jeans, die ich bisher gehabt habe und ich kann euch versprechen, dass ich in den letzten 2 Jahren ohne Erfolg nach solchen Jeans gesucht habe.

Obwohl ich glaube, dass man in gute Basics investieren sollte, finde ich es schwierig mehr als 100 Euro für ein Paar schwarze Skinny-Jeanshosen auszugeben. Aber dieses Dilemma war zu Ende, als ich diese von Topshop gesehen habe. Der Biker-Stil und die Reißverschluss-Details machen die Jeans ein besonderes Kleidungsstück. Sie bestehen aus weichem und dehnbarem Material und deswegen sind sie unheimlich bequem. Von den Hüften bis zu den Knöcheln passen sie wie eine zweite Haut und es gibt keine Schlampigkeit, wie man oft bei anderen High Street Marken findet. Deshalb kann ich sie nur weiterempfehlen.

Selbstverständlich habe ich sie mit meinen neuen Stiefel von Isabel Marant und einer Biker-Lederjacke kombiniert, da sie zusammen wie für einander gemacht aussehen.

Ich wünsche euch eine tolle Woche. (PS: Die jeans fallen ganz normal aus)

ES

Estos vaqueros de pitillo son exactamente como el título del post los describe: perfectamente cómodos, perfectamente favorecedores, y con los detalles perfectos en forma de cremalleras, lo que les agrega un toque roquero y único. Son los mejores vaqueros skinny que he tenido hasta ahora y os prometo que he buscado el par perfecto en el último par de años sin éxito alguno.

Aunque pienso que uno debe invertir en piezas clásicas de calidad, encuentro difícil gastar más de 100 Euros en un par de jeans pitillo negros, pero este dilema llegó a su fin en el momento que ví éstos de Topshop. El material es muy, muy suave y extensible, lo cual los hace muy cómodos y es por ello más que todo por lo cual los considero los mejores jeans que he tenido.

Son tan favorecedores por que quedan como una segunda piel y no se forman bolsas en la parte inferior como normalmente pasa  en los que encontramos en las tiendas de moda. Son como vaqueros de diseñador y no me queda más que recomendaroslos.

PD: Quedan normal, así que si los compráis, compradlos en vuestra talla normal.

New In | Isabel Marant ‘Andrew’ Boots

Fashion Landscape Isabel Marant Andrew BootsFashion Landscape Isabel Marant Andrew Boots  Fashion Landscape Isabel Marant Andrew Boots

Isabel Marant ‘Andrew’ Suede Boots (also here and here)

 

Yet another new in and this time a long term investment.

To be 100% honest, I was looking for a timeless and extremely simple, slick pair of walkable suede ankle boots with a normal stiletto heel and a long shaft for winter(boots like these look great not only with skinny jeans, but with skirts), but I simply cannot be bothered to spend over 500 Euros in a pair of shoes that can be found in the high street in pretty decent prices, quality, and designs.

Initially I was eyeing these ones from Balenciaga and these ones from Saint Laurent(the lower heel version here), but like previously said, I think their design can be better and it might be way too simple and “common” (nothing wrong with simple and common, but for over 500 Euros, you really reconsider it) to invest in.

At the end, I feel that as long as the design is not fairly unique and with a je ne sais quoi or a twist, I cannot justify such a big purchase, which was the main reason why I decided at the very end to purchase these Isabel Marant boots. Why? It’s all about the cone heel(which makes them more comfortable and easier to walk with), the suede and leather contrast, the blackest blackness, the slouchiness, and they literally go with any kind of outfit.

At the start I was a bit hesitant about purchasing them, since I already own a pair of Isabel Marant boots(the ‘Lazio’) which look not exactly similar to these ones, but you can see that it’s the same designer and I usually always opt for going for different designers and diametrically different styles for the sake of variety in my wardrobe. However, I might next year invest in an extremely simple pair, but for now, I am happy with these and their edginess, since they do add variety to my shoe collection.

So welcome home, second pair of Isabel Marant boots.

New In | Fleur of England Lace Triangle Bra

fleur of england lace brafleur of england lace braFleur of England ‘Heiress’ Lace Triangle Bra c/o Fleur of England

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you just can’t miss the lace/triangle bra hype going on, and for a good reason.

I was contacted by Fleur of England a little while ago and they offered me a piece of their amazingly beautiful and delicate lingerie collection, and of course, I was beyond stoked about it.

This ‘Heiress’ Triangle bra is already a classic from the label and it was THE bra that started the trend in the first place. I have neither seen nor touched a more beautiful, delicate, and sensual piece of lingerie and I think Fleur of England is the best at producing them.

Get it here.

Outfit | FL X Machine Jeans

LA based denim brand Machine Jeans contacted me a while ago and offered me a couple of their awesome destroyed denim pieces. I wasn’t surprised to see that their jeans have been sported by the likes of  Rihanna and Selena Gomez, because they have just the perfect amount of holes strategically placed in the right places, which adds this awesome bad girl (RiRi) vibe to any look.

As per usual, I went for a monochromatic look with these white, perfectly baggy and distressed boyfriend overalls and paired them with my all time favorite sneakers and a sweater to make them appropiate for the already not-too-cold-but-still-chilly weather over here. The fit is so perfect, so comfty, and of such great quality, that I can run, bike, and basically do anything in them. I felt so comfortable in them, that my normally awkward self in front of the camera felt super relaxed for once. Can just recommend them. (P.S. Got also a pair of skinnies from them and they are super soft, stretchy and have a perfect, second skin fit that is virtually impossible to find in the high street).

DE

Die Denim-Marke Machine Jeans mit Sitz in LA hat mich vor einigen Wochen kontaktiert und sie haben mir ein Paar ihrer perfekt zerrissenen Jeans angeboten. Als ich gesehen habe, dass Promis, wie Rihanna und Selena Gomez, diese Jeans gerne tragen, war ich nicht überrascht, da die Marke wegen ihrer Denim-Technologie einen Kult-Status verdient. Die Risse sind perfekt platziert, so dass sie jedem Look einen Rock-Chic Vibe geben.

Wie gewöhnt trage ich diese Boyfriend-Overalls in einer Schwarz-Weiß Kombination. Ich habe sie mit meinen Lieblings-Turnschuhen und einem Rollkragen-Pulli kombiniert, da das Wetter hier schon ein bisschen kühler wird.

Die Qualität ist hervorragend und die Passform perfekt. Sie sind so bequem, dass ich in diesem Overalls laufen und Fahrrad fahren kann. Ich habe mich so wohl gefühlt, als ich sie trug, dass ich endlich total relaxed im Photoshoot erschien (normalerweise bin ich  aufgeregt vor der Kamera). Ich kann diese Overalls nur weiterempfehlen. (P.S. Ich habe auch eine Skinny-Jeanshose von Machine Jeans bekommen, und sie sind so weich und passen wie eine zweite Haut, was schwierig zu finden ist).

ES

La marca de vaqueros Machine Jeans con sede en Los Angeles, California me contactó hace algunas semanas y me ofrecieron un par de sus vaqueros rasgados. No me sorprendió ver que famosas como Rihanna y Selena Gómez los llevan, porque la marca con su tecnología se especializa en colocar los hoyos en lugares estratégicos y en la medida perfecta, lo cual los hará ganar un estatus de culto, ya que agregan la perfecta dosis de chica mala a cualquier look.

Como de costumbre, llevo estos petos vaqueros en un look en blanco y negro y los he combinado con mis zapatillas deportivas favoritas y un jersey, ya que aquí las temperaturas han bajado algo en las últimas semanas. La calidad del peto es incuestionable y son tan cómodos, que creo que puedo correr y andar en bicicleta en ellos. Generalmente soy muy tímida y poco natural frente a la cámara, pero me sentía tan a gusto en el peto que al fin aparezco relajada y natural. Sólo  puedo recomendarlos. (PD: Machine Jeans me han también enviado un par de sus jeans pitillo y el tejido es tan suave y liviano, que quedan como una segunda piel, algo casi imposible de encontrar, os los recomiendo).

Your Opinion | Should I go light brown or dark?

Fashion Landscape

 

Sorry for the lack of updates this week, especially regarding outfits, but it has been impossible to shoot, since it’s been raining non-stop here for the last couple of weeks and it has also been incredibly dark, which makes it also super  hard to even shoot indoors. Good news is that the weather is supposed to get better from today onwards, so yup, I have busy day today shooting.

The reason I am writing this post is to ask you, my readers, what hair color should I go for, light brown as in the left picture above or a darker shade like in the right? My hair at the moment (picture below and you can see it even better by scrolling down on my last outfit post)is really not how I wanted it, because it is way too blonde to suit my skin color, and there is no transition to the darker hairs, which makes it unflattering and unnatural. I am considering going full honey/caramel light brown and get rid of the ombré effect.

Normally, I would know what to go for, but at the moment, I can’t really decide and don’t really know what looks best and most flattering. Going back to my natural raven black hair is not an option, since it hardens my features and makes me look older. I get the general impression that hair in a lighter shade softens my face, but it’s hard to tell, so I would really appreciate your help and opinion on this one. x

My mother always told me that when I was 4-5 years old, I got up early in the morning, took a shower by myself, and picked my outfit, which were always color and style coordinated, or at least so she said. This is how you will normally see me while running errands. I mostly aim for comfort when I know I have to walk a lot or simply for being at home, which is why I wear often  sneakers and boyfriend jeans. Then again, when I do have to think more about how I want to dress, it turns out completely different than this, because for me, fashion is a form of self expression, even artistic expression. I love to create whether it be through painting, design, or fashion. I like to play with silhouettes, lengths, layers, and textures and the end result can look quite excentric. I don’t intend to look “excentric” and I don’t dress for other people. They can often make fun, or say “those shoes are beautiful, but they look uncomfortable”. However, art or artistic expression does need to fulfill a function, it is what it is for its own sake.

Now you know why my style is divided in two parts: what I wear for practicality reasons, and what I wear to express myself.

DE

Meine Mutter hat mir immer davon erzählt, dass, als ich 4-5 Jahre alt war, ich früh aufgestanden bin und dass ich meine eigenen Outfits immer selbst gewählt habe. Die Farben und Stil von den Outfits haben immer zusammengepasst, sagte sie.

Was ihr gerade seht, ist, was ich fast jeden Tag trage. Da ich oft hin und her laufen muss, trage ich aus praktischem Grund fast immer Turnschuhe und Boyfriend-Jeans. Jedoch, wenn ich tiefer nachdenke, wie ich mich wirklich bekleiden möchte, ist das Resultat ganz anders, da die Mode für mich eine Art von Selbstausdruck ist. Nach meiner Meinung ist sie sogar eine künstlerische Ausdrucksform. Ich bin eine Person, die gerne durch Malerei oder Design Kunst schaft. Deswegen spiele ich mit Silhouetten, Längen, Schichten, Materialen, und Texturen und am Ende kann das Ergebnis “exzentrisch” aussehen. Natürlich ist das nicht absichtig, da ich mich nicht für die anderen bekleide. Man kann entweder sich darüber lustig machen oder sagen, “die Schuhe sind schön, aber sie sehen unbequem aus”, aber Mode genauso wie Kunst muss keine Funktion erfüllen. Kunst ist Kunst um der Kunst Wille.

Jetzt wisst ihr schon, warum mein Stil zweiseitig ist und zwar besteht er aus: Praktische Outfits für den Alltag und was ich trage, um mich selbst auszudrucken.

ES

Mi madre siempre cuenta que, cuando yo tenía 4 ó 5 años de edad, me levantaba muy temprano cada día y escogía solita lo que me quería poner. Ella narra que los conjuntos siempre consistían de colores coordinados y estilos que armonizaban combinados. Sin embargo, el outfit de hoy es lo que normalmente llevo en el día a día y me guío por el comfort y la practicidad, ya que, a veces, camino mucho. Por ello, las zapatillas deportivas y los vaqueros boyfriend son mis aliados favoritos. Pero si debo investir más tiempo en pensar qué me gustaría llevar, debo decir que el resultado es completamente diferente a lo que véis, por que, para mí, la moda es una forma de expresión individual, incluso una expresiüon artística. Soy una persona a la que, desde la infancia, me encanta crear, ya sea en la forma de pintura, diseño o la moda. Por ello, me encanta jugar con cortes, siluetas, materiales, texturas, largos y el resultado puede verse algo “excéntrico”, lo cual no es intencional, ya que yo no me visto para complacer a otras personas. Otros pueden hasta burlarse o decirme “esos zapatos son chulos, pero se ven incómodos”, con lo cual siempre estaré en desacuerdo, ya que el arte o la expresión artística no debe cumplir ninguna función. L’art pour l’art.

Ahora sabéis el porqué de mi estilo bifacético, el cual consiste en 1. Lo que llevo por comfort y practicidad y 2. lo que llevo para expresarme.

Fashion | The “Wang-a-licious” Spring Summer 2015 Collection

alexanderwang3alexanderwang1alexanderwang4alexanderwangalexanderwang5alexander wang alexander wangPhoto Credit: Vogue.com, Now Fashion!, Tumblr

As some of you might have noticed, I never post single collections and only just a summary of my favorites each season. But the Alexander Wang Spring Summer 2015 Collection is so amazing that it deserves an exclusive post in its own right.

The collection might neither be groundbreaking nor avant-garde, also not as artsy as his Spring Summer 2013 collection, but it is a solid set of well-crafted and covetable items, which I believe will be amongst his classics. With lots of scuba-inspired dresses, mesh bombers combined with tailored high-waisted satin trousers and sleek, out-of-this-world heels, it is evident he went back to his signature and trademark sports-luxe designs.

I think I am already obssessed with all the shoes in this collection and I will already have to start saving for a pair next season. What about you? What are your thoughts on this collection?
