Fashion LandscapeFashion Landscape Fashion LandscapeFashion LandscapeWearing: Suguru ‘Hari’ Japanese Silk Twill Scarf c/o Suguru, Elizabeth and James Ring via Edited,  Cos Wide Legged Trousers (shop similar here, here, here, herehere, here, and here), Zara Pinstripe Waistcoat (find similar herehere, herehere, herehere, and here), Zara Sandals(buy similar here, here, here, and here), & Other Stories Sunglasses(similar here and here), and a Proenza Schouler Bag

I had been looking like a madwoman for the perfect oversized silk scarf with a playful monochrome graphic print to spice up my outfits, but I never found it, until I was contacted by Suguru, a Japanese designer who dedicates himself to the art of Japanese silk printing (known as ‘Nassen’),  and I had the chance to pick one of his amazingly beautiful scarves.

These look in person exactly how they look in the pictures. The material is as soft, silky, and of supreme quality as it seems and the prints are really the prettiest-without-being-kitsch ones I’ve ever seen in a scarf.

And it’s no wonder it is Japanese, as Japanese arts and architecture are practically the parents of Western modern art and design. They are the masters of minimalism and this scarf is a showcase of that master craftsmanship. I promise you, you will not find a scarf this beautiful and of such lovely prints and materials anywhere, so needless to say I’m more than happy with it.

Regarding the outfit: It’s all about the wide silhouette and  balancing it by wearing heels. This season’s star is grey, so this is a color I will wear to the point of saturation this season. Wishing you all a lovely weekend. x

Ich habe ohne Erfolg nach dem perfekten Seiden-Schal mit graphischen Prints gesucht, bis Suguru, ein Japanischer Designer, der sich auf die Kunst von japanischem Seiden-Printing spezialisiert,  mich kontaktiert hat und mir einen Schal ihres Sortiments angeboten hat.

Der Schal ist genauso schön, wie er auf den Bildern aussieht. Das Seiden-Material ist weich und aus unglaublich guter Qualität. Die Prints sind fein verarbeitet und einzigartig und sie sind auch die besten, die ich auf einem Schal gesehen habe.

Kein Wunder, dass diese wunderschönen Schals aus Japan sind, da japanische Architektur und Kunst die Eltern der westlichen Kunst und Designs sind. Bewegungen wie Minimalismus, Funktionalismus, und sogar Jugendstil wurden von japanischer Architektur und Kunst inspiriert. Der Schal ist ein Beweis und Beispiel von Japans feiner Handwerkskunst. Man kann einfach keine besseren Schals wie diesen finden, glaubt mir, deswegen bin ich vollkommen zufrieden und kann ihn nur weiterempfehlen.

Übers Outfit: Diese Saison gehts weiter mit der Oversized-Silhouette und ich trage zu meinen Hosen mit unglaublich weitem Bein von Cos Heels um die Proportionen auszugleichen. Grau ist die Star-Farbe des Herbsts und deswegen werde ich sie ohne Ende tragen. Ich hoffe, ihr habt ein tolles Wochenende.

ES

Había estado buscando por meses el foulard perfecto en blanco y negro con estampados gráficos sin éxito alguno, hasta que Suguru, una disenador japonés que se dedica al arte del estampado japonés en seda  me contactó y me ofreció uno de su increíblemente hermoso surtido.

El foulard se ve en persona exactamente como lo véis en las fotos. El material es suave, sedoso, y de una calidad insuperable. Los estampados son finamente elaborados y son los más bonitos que he visto alguna vez en un foulard.

No es raro que estas bellezas provengan de Japón, ya que el arte y arquitectura japonesa son los padres del arte y diseño Occidental, habiendo influído movimientos del arte modernista como lo son el minimalismo, el funcionalismo y hasta el Art Nouveau. Los japoneses son expertos en el arte del minimalismo y este foulard es sólo una pequeña muestra de sus finas elaboraciones. Os prometo que no encontraráis foulards así de bonitos, con tan hermosos estampados y de la más fina seda. Es obvio que estoy más que feliz con mi nueva adquisición y sólo me queda recomendaroslo.

Respecto al outfit de hoy: Esta temporada continúan las siluetas sobredimensionadas y he combinado estos pantalones súper anchos de Cos con tacones, ya que los últimos refinan y agregan balance al conjunto. El gris es el color estrella del otoño y lo veráis mucho por aquí. Os deseo un feliz fin de semana.

Outfit | Dirndlfest

Fashion LandscapeFashion LandscapeFashion LandscapeFashion LandscapeFashion LandscapeWearing: Dirndlfest ‘Edles-Landhaus’ Dirndl  in traditional look c/o Dirndlfest, Zara Ballerinas (similar here), Daniel Wellington Watch

EN

After living for exactly 10 years in Bavaria, I finally have a Dirndl thanks to Dirndlfest, who offered me a while back one of my choice from their beautiful assortment. Dirndls are the traditional dresses worn in Bavaria, especially during traditional events and Volkfeste(beer or wine festivals), so the city’s fall festival this Sunday was the perfect opportunity to wear it.

I always wanted to have one, as I think they are the most flattering dresses that exist, because they are meant to highlight the female silhouette in a very subtle way.

The quality is really amazing considering the price (they are all in sale for 50% off right now) and the dirndl looks even expensive due to the beautiful fabrics and fine prints on them, so I really recommend them. What I like the most is that they don’t look costume-y like budget Dirndls tend to look like, which is exactly why I opted for this Dirndl in tradtional look and colour. And the fit? Don’t even get me started. I ordered it in my normal size and it fits like a glove, as if it had been tailored exactly for my body.

So if you’re around in Bavaria, buying one never hurts, as you can wear them literally for anything, plus Halloween is coming soon and dirndls make awesome ‘Bavarian maiden” disguises.

DE

Nachdem ich knapp 10 Jahre in Bayern wohne, habe ich endlich ein Dirndl dank Dirndlfest, die mir vor kurzem eines aus ihrem tollen Sortiment angeboten haben. Das Stadt-Voksfest am Sonntag war die perfekte Gelegenheit, dieses wunderschöne traditionelle Dirndl zu tragen.

Ich wollte immer eins haben, da ich glaube, sie sind die schmeichelndsten Kleider, die überhaupt existieren, weil sie so gut die weibliche Figur betonen.

Für den Preis (jetzt kann man alle mit 50% Rabatt kaufen) ist ihre Qualität ausgezeichnet und man kann sogar sagen, dass sie  wegen ihren feinen Stoffen, Verarbeitung und Prints teuer aussehen. Ich habe deswegen dieses Dirndl im traditionellen Look bestellt. Das beste daran ist, dass ich das in meiner normalen Größe bestellt habe, und das Dirndl sieht so aus, als ob es für mich genäht wurde.

Also, wenn ihr nach Bayern kommt, schadet es keinem, ein Dirndl zu kaufen, da hier immer Veranstaltungen stattfinden, bei denen man sie tragen kann. Auch finden bald Halloween Parties statt und ein Dirndl ist nach meiner Meinung das perfekte ‘Mädel’ Kostüm.

ES

 Después de vivir exactamente 10 años en Baviera, al fin tengo un Dirndl gracias a Dirndlfest, que me han ofrecido uno de su precioso surtido. Como muchas de vosotras sabéis, el Dirndl es el vestido tradicional que llevan las mujeres en Baviera, Austria y Suiza, en especial durante eventos tradicionales y Volksfeste (festivales de cerveza o vino), así que el festival de otoño de la ciudad que tomó lugar este domingo fue la oportunidad perfecta para pasear con él.

Siempre quise tener uno, ya que pienso que son los vestidos más favorecedores que existen, por que están hechos para especialmente acentuar la figura femenina.

La calidad es impresionante considerando el precio y justamente ahora los podéis comprar con el 50% de descuento. Me atrevo a decir que el vestido se ve caro debido a los tejidos, estampados, colores y su elaboración, así que os los recomiendo. Lo que más me gusta es que no se ven como disfraces, como acostumbran a verse los dirndls baratos y por ésta razón he optado por éste en look tradicional. Y mejor ni comienzo a hablar del corte, el cual pareciese hubiese sido tejido especialmente para mi figura.

Así que, si estáis de viaje por Baviera, investir en un Dirndl no es una mala idea, ya que siempre hay oportunidades y eventos en los que se pueden llevar. Además ya pronto se celebrarán las fiestas del día de brujas y un dirndl es el disfraz perfecto.

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

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

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.

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.

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

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.
