Silky Summer

Image

My favorite fabric to wear in the summer is silk , or anything resembling it. The lightness is perfect for when the weather heats up , although that does not seem to be happening anytime soon where I am. i just recently got a black silk and thin leather strap camisole and I think it’s one of those pieces I will just wear and wear. Perfect for frolocking around or night ,bonus points if it’s under a suit .

Happy Saturday !

Domino

As you have probably noticed , I am really into sneakers lately . My latest find are the ASOS Domino sneaks , the perfect vintage Nike/Alexander Wang look alike sneakers. I  picture  myself wearing these just a little too much this summer , with anything from jeans to my samouraÏ skirt.

The real dilemma now is , which color to pick?

Alexander Wang’s much anticipated first collection was definitely, worth the wait . Wang’s usual downtown roughness was toned down with the parisian’s brands classicism, upgrading Cristobàl Balenciaga’s familiar rounded theatrical cuts to modern cocoon coats. The cracked marble effect was a recurrent theme , from the runway to most of the pieces. As predicted , the show was in a much more intimate venue and less of a conceptual spectacle then Wang’s usual show , but that only emphasized the simple beauty of the clothes. My favorite pieces where the marble inspired pumps, again a reconstructed classic silhouette .Looks like the edgy urban Wang girl has grown up into a proper( but still effortlessy cool) parisienne.

The only thing all white right now in Montreal is the weather since the snow has been falling in a way tourists would probably think is romantic for the past 24 hours . But when it’s been snowing since November , it gets sort of irritating when all I want to do is look as clean crisp and summery as Kati Nescher does in these images. I am not always fond of studio pictures because I think they don’t always make the pieces look as good but in this case , I think the all white set makes the clothes look even better. Kati looks so youthful and fresh in these crystal clear images , maybe because apart from wearing Alexander Wang , Comme des Garçons , Balenciaga and Givenchy ( hello , dream team!) , the bleached out color scheme makes her features more prominent. If it wasn’t clear enough , I want white in my wardrobe , not in my weather forecast!
This editorial is definitely going in my inspiration file for Sunday’s shoot with Maureen , more on that later!

Leather,Fuzz and such at Alexander Wang

Image

Image

ImageAlexander Wang’s Fall 2013/2014 pieces are exactly what I would wear next winter , or even right now since Montreal is still freezing. As per usual , the collection exuded a coolness only Wang could create. The texture mixing was an obvious theme , alternating between cashmere to fur and to leather. The pieces had a cozier look to them than usual , more relaxed and the edges where softer. The drop-waists where something I was not to sure of in Pre-Fall , but these drop-waists coats appeared to me more of a modern 30’s , Great Gatsby meets downtown 2013 New York. Also , the slicked back pony tails reinforced the fact that I need to try slicking back my hair. So for next Fall, boxier , softer looks than usual at Alexander Wang but still very sharp and modern.

Hope Monday won’t be too rough!

Fashion Week Prep: Ideally

I am attending one event in Montreal’s fashion week tomorrow and I’ll tell you guys as soon as possible how it was but until then , I have put together my ideal fashion week survival outfit for those venturing to NYFW or MFW . A perfect mix of cozy , warm and practical without being unattractive.

Image

1 . A Acne shearling jacket because it’s warm , soft and therefore perfect for New York and Montreal’s below zero temperatures.

2. A Yankees cap because your hair won’t look good if you get rained on and forget to carry a umbrella ( like yours truly)

3.  Alexander Wang sneakers because they are black leather and sleek , so you can prance around the city like a ninja. ( Can be replaced by the Zannoti’s I spoke of)

4. Céline bordeaux perfection because it’s huge so you can fit everything , it’s a dark bordeaux color and it’s Céline , therefore it will possibly make you Tommy Ton’s next street style star. Possibly.

I personally don’t have a super hectic fashion week since I am in school and will be watching the New York shows from the comfort of my bed and handy-dandy style.com but , ideally I would be at the various fashion weeks and wearing the above mentioned pieces.

Happy Tuesday!
