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:

For the first time, I’m going to have a couture look in my Friday Favorites. As haute couture fashion week found its end yesterday in Paris, I have to report a bit about it. A big highlight during these days was the Alexandre Vauthier show. Full of glamour and outfits for the night time. Lots of fringes and plunging necklines, at least in every second look! The dress your looking at, took 1600 hours of handwork. Probably one of the most precious and stunning things I’ve ever seen in my life. No wonder I would just go for it. Who wouldn’t?

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.

Derek Lam for this time. A collection inspired by the 70ties. Designers in general seem to get a lot of inspiration from the 70ties these past few seasons. What made me want to pick this look for this week? I’ll start from the bottom: the wide camel crepe pants were probably the main reason. The fact that they left out the belt on purpose makes me love it. Less is more, as they say. They are the pants you would put in the category ‘Parisian fashion’. This simple blouse almost had to be white. Guess the stylists wanted to be on the safe side, well done. Last but not least, the sunnies. Round frame sunglasses are the trendiest ! He actually shares this opinion with a few designers. Here some others:
