Remember when I posted something about a t-shirt brand Conflict of Interest? Well , I still haven’t managed to order one ( I am kind of a online shopping skeptic) but their new collection just may have convinced me to. My favorite is the “Brawlmain”, COI’svdiscreet sense of humor is even more present in the new pieces. So the question remains , to order or not? Hmmm… I’ll get back to you on that.

I really need a small perfect little black leather bag. I like this one from Dylan Kain , the leather looks gorgeous and I am starting to love gold chains. Black and gold is the best color combination don’t you think? I really would not mind Rodriguez.
You can get one here and check out the other bags too , it’s hard to pick just one.
Resort 2013 was somehow more intresting to me than pre-fall . Something about thinking of what I will be wearing next winter turns me completly off , especially in these below zero temperatures. As you know , I am a great advocate for casual no-fuss clothing for the spring. Loose silky pants are possibly my favorite thing to wear in the summer , since I can never seem to find shorts that don’t make me look like an akward hipster. I will definitely need to fix that this summer but for niw the obvious solution is silky pants. These looks from Céline , Margiela and Stella McCartney keep my hot weather motto alive: no leg-tan , no problem.

With her porcelain complexion and striking stare are on of the reasons that Rooney Mara is my favorite actress. The way she morphed entirely into the skin of The Girl With The Dragon Tatoo’s Lisbeth Salader last year left me in awe , leading me to reading all three books. This is her second time covering Vogue and yet again the photographs are painstakingly beautiful. She has the elegance of old Hollywood toughened by her modernity and edge.Hope she inspire’s you as much as she does me.

Eventhough it’s literally -30 outside , I am thinking about summer already. I just can’t wait to walk around my favorite spots in the city without wearing as much layers as an onion. These sandals from Alexander Wang are exactly what I want to be wearing whilst walking around aimlessly in said city. Summer for me can be summed up in one word : casual.
Have a nice weekend , I have some work to do but I’m going to try to relax anyway! You should too.
Forgive me for saying this but, I was not impressed with Wang’s Pre-Fall collection. Maybe he was just a little distracted from his new gig at Balenciaga (are you as exited as I am?). I just though it was bleak , something we had seen before . But Helmut Lang on the other hand was one of my favorite Pre-Fall collections. The tailoring is relaxed but polished , not stuffy. The fabrics are black/grey/white , my favorite color scheme and the fading keeps it from looking bleak.My favorite piece is probably the dress with a grey-black dégradé and beautiful draping. I have always thought that back-baring dresses are the epitome of elegance , showing just the necessary amount of skin. Eventhough Wang’s pre-fall was weak , I am sure he has created marvels for the up coming seasons at Alexander Wang and Balenciaga.
P.S : Have you guys been keeping up with the couture shows? I’m kind of behind but I have a few I really want to look at.
Loving this editorial of Kinga. She is wearing Jil Sander , one of my favorite designers. So minimal and clean and the all white trend for spring again (told ya!). And did you see that hair? A beautiful mess indeed.

I am currently loving my Piazza Sempione linen shirt , it just makes me want to fast forward into summer so I can pair it with some baggy jean shorts and pumps. The cut is perfectly loose and the strait slit down the neckline shows just a sliver of skin. I can’t wait to show you guys how it will look on but first , the blizzard outside of my window needs to go away. Speaking of summer , I really need to find the perfect loose, just above the knee denim shorts since I am kind of rejecting my short shorts this summer.
Happy Sunday !
This campaign has reminded me why I chose to call my blog What Would Wang Do , because sometimes I do truly wonder how the hell he does it. Creating perfect collections season after season is tough, but he and his team manage to create pieces to suit so many personalities each time. I think a way to tell a great designer apart from others is to see if the pieces he or she makes can be worn by many different people. Great fashion should adapt itself to the wearer , not the other way around.
I spoke about my current favorite trend for spring last week , piling simple thick and thin rings on all your fingers but I didn’t show you some of the rings I would do said piling with ,apart from the Balenciaga ones. I am loving Repossi jewlery collection , even though it’s sort of pricy and Margiela pieces have always been favorites. Forget what your mother told you about mixing metals and pair thick sleek rings with thin ones. You could also put one ring on each finger for a more Balenciaga-esque hand. Don’t forget to check out sites like Etsy , you can usually find lovely rings there for less .
1. Repossi black Berbère ring
2. Maison Martin Margiela double rings ( pile them on top of one another or put the smaller one on another finger)
3. RP encore Canary Bone rings
