Mary Janes

MARY JANE

The women shoes worn in the 60’s (fun fact: in the 20’s by kids), are back in fashion! Our icon Twiggy is considered to be the trendsetter back then. So they could be the shoes you would associate to your grand mum. Well, times changed. It’s incredible how quickly they were spread all over the streets. Still there’s a difference to then: It’s all about strong colours and satin. Take a look at our professionals and do it their way.

My personal favorite is Chiara’s pair by Valentino:

Friday Favorites, Jil Sander

Jil Sander 15

When looking at this kind of style, I immediately think of Leandra Medine and her blog manrepeller. She started writing her blog with the idea that fashion would often be man repelling where I totally share the same opinion with her. Even here, I mean come on, who would date a girl wearing socks in heels?! But does this hold us fashion infatuated girls back from still wearing it? It definetly shouldn’t! Because it sets a statement and that’s reason enough. The boyish kind of look has always been a way to dress for strong women with courage and self-determination. As I have never really been the ballet kind of girl but rather the girl growing up with boys and wanted to go doing karate instead of dancing, Jil Sander would absolutely match my spirit (which sounds rather ironic because that’s not what I have been representing on this blog at all). I’m still trying to find out about my personal style and it might be a thing that will accompany everyone of us through the rest of our lifes and I might start and give it a go with this kind of look. What I actually wanted to say: this whole collection is a killer ! sneekpeak here:

Friday Favorites, Hermès

HER_0593

If luxury had to be represented by one brand, for me it would probably be Hermès. Of course we could start to argue about that and some people might come up with Chanel and many more houses worth mentioning, but only if you think about the bags, what comes to your mind?
Right, if you own a birkin you are pretty much well supplied. It’s the bag that comes at the end of your wishlist when you could have afforded any other bag. That’s how I would define luxury.
So I picked this outfit because it’s burning hot in Zurich right now and it had to be something light. Otherwise I wouldn’t have been able to write about it.
I’ve always liked the ancient Roman style. Even as a kid I used to wrap towels around me so that I could look like one of them. It’s such a simple and beautiful way to dress! The pale pink tone of this overall gives this delicate touch every woman would look for in an outfit. Some high sandals and you’re perfectly styled from head to toe.

Friday Favorites, Thakoon

Thakoon

Free the shoulders! What a nice way to get through summer. And as you know that I’m a big fan of oversized pieces and lace up sandals you shouldn’t wonder that this got into my Friday Favorites. & I admit, it also might have been Sanne Vloet that made me like this look so much. Since I caught her on the streets in Paris I’m a big fan of her. Whenever she turns up in a fashionshow I’m tending to like the outfit. That girl definitely fulfills her duty concerning modelling. Thakoon gets the fashionistas on a tropic holiday with this collection. Palmtrees, strips of raffia and everything that makes you feel on vacation represents the ready to wear SS15 show.

Friday Favorites, Blumarine

BLU_0368

One more week is over and it’s time for our ‘Friday Favorites’. I was inspired by Chiara Ferragni’s latest Blumarine dress she wore at the AmfAR Gala. I personally think that she looked flawless in it and so I refreshed my mind and went through the whole ready-to-wear spring/summer 15 collection of Blumarine again. I couldn’t explain myself why I forgot about this look because as soon as I saw it I went like “wow!”. I didn’t know that ‘mermaid meets antique Roman’ could be that fantastic!
