Bimba y Lola

The spanish brand with the leaping dog was always one of my favorite places to shop when in Portugal. Since I’m planning to return to Lisbon soon, I wanted to check out what they had and noticed they had an online store. I knew about their gorgeous accessories but I didn’t know they made super smart and beautiful ready-to-wear fashion (check out the coats!).

This is their christmas lookbook:

Crazy furs and envelope clutches, yay!

Versace for H&M

The highly anticipated Best of Versace collection for H&M finally had it’s presentation, or shall I say spectacle, in New York and everyone was invited: Celebrities, fashionistas, bloggers – Uma Thurman, Jessica Alba, Blake Lively, as well as Elin Kling and Bryan Boy on the blogger side, just to name a few. I guess people who have the most influence on the potential costumer. Watching the video of the show I felt like the entire cast of Gossip Girl was sitting in the front row.

Honestly, I loved the trailer for the collection – but this is about clothes. There seems to have been a huge amount of effort put in to promoting a collection, which frankly does not knock me off my socks. Sure it’s glamourous, there’s a lot of bling and bold prints. Yet it seems dated and weirdly inconsistent.

The lookbook is good – the picture with the two blondes has a creepy vibe to it, which I like. Plus, there’s Abbey Lee Kershaw – who looks good in anything, let’s face it.

I’m very curious to see these clothes hanging on the racks of a crowded H&M – I think that will cost them their glamour factor. And how many people can pull off tropical prints and all-over studs? We shall wait and see.
