In case anyone hasn’t noticed yet: Zara is kicking ass these days. Showcasing my favorite non-colorful color combo of black and navy and a juxtaposition of sexy slip dresses with bulky coats (honestly can’t think of a better example of ‘opposites attract’), they are nailing it. Want. Now.
So on November 14th fashion lovers on a budget all over the world will be able to get their hands on something designed by the one and only Isabel Marant. The photos of the collection were leaked (how unfortunate.. or is it?) and show some very typical Marant pieces. Gorgeous of course, but I can’t help feeling like this is very expected.
“I thought this was a good opportunity to say, ‘That belongs to me’,” designer Isabel Marant said to British Vogue about the collaboration. Instead of having fast fashion chains knock off her designs, Marant decided to partner with H&M so she could ensure her standards of design and quality were followed. Awkward, since H&M has knocked off her designs plenty of times. Remember the jeans with the print along the side of the leg? Yeah, H&M knocked those off and now they are selling them again but with Isabel Marant’s approval.
I don’t think I will be getting in line and fight other girls for this collection on November 14th, however the coats and knit wear are so beautiful, I might find myself refreshing H&M.com over and over to snatch one of the coveted pieces of this collaboration.
While the first half of the Proenza Schouler collection didn’t really convince me, the second half was magical. I can’t get enough of those shimmery pleated skirts with the crop tops and the boxy jumpers. Great silhouettes and beautiful color palette.Louise Goldin’s spring/summer ’14 collection is just too cute. She takes the tennis player look from the court to the streets and I love it.
Can’t really talk about fashion week without mentioning Alexander Wang, who brought back logo mania this year. If I could have one item it would be the parental advisory sweater – this is for sure the hot piece.

This weekend I’m in Prague and since the weather was incredibly nice I went for some sightseeing with my favorite photographer yesterday. What I’m wearing: T-Shirt from Asos, scuba skirt from H&M trend, sunnies from Zipper with a Monki chain and my new lipstick of choice from Inglot (no. 420). Also, I have another beauty favorite that I need to talk about. The Kiehl’s BB cream. Super smooth and perfect for someone who doesn’t like to wear makeup.

This one is going to be hard to beat. The Rag & Bone S/S 2014 collection is that good. And it’s so me! It is like they made my sartorial dreams come true and presented exactly what I want to wear right now – which is the only thing that makes me doubt the success of this collection: Will it still be cool in 2014? It’s very nineties with the neckholder crop tops, thin straps, dungarees and bare belly buttons and it’s combined with sportswear which is also very now. Somehow I feel if they had launched this collection last year it would have felt more new and innovative but now I feel like David Neville and Marcus Wainwright simply jumped on the bandwagon of cool with this collection. Nevertheless, I love it and I do not mind whatsoever that the 90s will stick around for another season. All those shimmery dresses, sheer fabrics and the polo shirts are fantastic and don’t get me started on those shoes! Here are some of my favorite looks (via Style.com)
Topshop has arrived to Amsterdam. On Monday I went to the opening at De Bijenkorf and of course I couldn’t resist buying something. Got this sporty long sleeve with airtex details from Topman actually (guys they have great stuff!). But I have my eye on a white teddy bear fur jacket as well as a powdery pink trench coat.
Love these crazy lipstick colors from MAC in this shoot for Hunger magazine. Hunger Fashion Editor Alexander Harley teamed up with make up artist Suzy Rycroft, senior artist at MAC, and made these seemingly unwearable colors, black, blue, purple and even green, really desirable. This model pulls off these odd shades with minimal eye make up and looks beautiful. Personally, I recently bought a purple lipstick just like the one in the picture and I am in love with it. But now, I am considering black..
