It’s almost mid December now. This means party season has officially started and this also means it’s time to start choosing the right and appropriate look to be the star of the said parties. Generally all we think about is glitter, sequins, satin, jewels and much more too.

Here below some of the the nicest pieces out there:

  1. GLOW DROPS,  Barbara Sturm – The name says it all, it’s a moisturizer able to give a healthy glow, that can be used over the makeup or combined with one’s skincare routine. How to be radiant shine keeping the skin hydrated. 
  2. GOLD DIAMOND CLIP EARRING, Ole Lynggard Copenhagen – such an unique piece of of fine jewelry entirely handcrafted by a team of 45 smiths at the label’s atelier. This says it all, a piece able to make the whole look all by itself.

LIGHTS ON HOUSE OF DAGMAR

LIGHTS ON HOUSE OF DAGMAR

AW18 runaway, buyable on houseofdagmar.com

It’s a fact you already know, I feel inspired by everything that’s Scandinavian. Fashion is no less interesting. As posted ( here here here and also here) the creations of brands based in Copenhagen, Oslo and Stockholm are always up-to-date and fun. Fabrics and patterns used are pretty often their key points. 

House of Dagmar is defintely interesting. 

Based in the Swedish capital, the brand was launched in the spring of 2005 by three sisters, Karin Söderlind, Kristina Tjäder and Sofia Wallenstam, to carry forward the legacy of their fashionable tailor grandmother, from who was inspired its name: Dagmar. Their aim is to keep alive the sense of quality and ambition that was so dear to her and that can help in the process of establishing a timeless offer in the industry. 

The brand has now become a cult thanks to its sporty and vaguely eccentric feel. It creates sustainable ( sustainability is in fact fundamental for the owners ) and expressive collections with knitwear at the very core. Each garment shows Dagmar’s design language, giving the pieces a strong personality, and therefore continuing to be wearable,year after year.

“TOGETHER” AW18 MANGO CAMPAIGN

“TOGETHER” AW18 MANGO CAMPAIGN

Playing chess, going skateboard, gardening, tasting coffee, laughing together during dinner and posing for a family portrait .. together. It’s what Adrien Brody, Amber Valletta, Carolyn Murphy, Adwoa Aboah, the Sorrenti family ( family of the commercial director )  and friends show us in the latest MANGO autumn winter campaign, while rocking the new collection. 

Coats and blazers in check or animalier prints, oversized chunky sweaters, wool and velvet for a metropolitan apparel that never go out of date.

The aim is clear, showing the importance of emotional bonds, of sharing the simple things in life and also of appreciating the environments that make a group of people “family”. Probably the easiest technique to raise good and positive thoughts on people, still hugely used to reach the various targets.

Tell me your thoughts on this.

 

TOTEME ON MY MIND

TOTEME ON MY MIND

San Remo scarf / Sedona shirt / Santos jacket / Leon tights black monogram

One of the best brand around, the emblem of the Scandinavian simplicity. The one brand that easily helps you to stock the closet with daily basic, yet never boring pieces.

What would you choose to buy first? Hard decision.

CPH SS19

The August edition of the Copenhagen Fashion Week, which is the largest fashion week among the Nordic regions, just ended. It is one of those I always enjoy and in which there is always some new designers that draw the attention the most. The nordic style is not really for everyone, but once you start to understand and enjoy it.. then it’s always source of big inspiration for the everyday attire choices.

Here below some of the runaways I enjoyed the most, in which floral patterns and both loose and voluminous structures seem to be the common points.

BAUM UND PFERDGARTEN

The sporty vibes, part of the essence of the brand, are being mixed with more romantic and vintage shapes that are currently sweeping the fashion world. Loved how the brand used the flower print in various shades from blue, green, purple to yellow and pink. Also, is all about check prints including prince of wales and gingham. Amazing. 

 

CECILIE BAHNSEN

This is how I see myself strolling around the next year. Romantic and feminine with voluminous shapes, large puff sleeves and bell-shaped skirts in colored lace – lime, rose, baby blue and navy; or rose, white and yellow. A summer dream for sure. 

 

MUNTHE

A runaway I totally loved, full of must-haves: from see-through shirts to dresses with flowing ruffles and ample sleeves, that gives a relaxed and laid back feeling. Totally inspired, as the designer herself said, to the fauna of Bali. 

 

 

STINE GOYA

The perfect catwalk for everyone who loves floral pattern, medium length shirts, the art of combining patterns and layers.. like me. Styling definitely played a vital role in getting that edgier and somehow retro message across the show. 

 

THE FLORAL ( NEVER-ENDING ) TREND

THE FLORAL ( NEVER-ENDING ) TREND

Tutia maxi dress from Horror Vacui / Floral bead-embellished drop clip-on earrings from Etro

Dainty georgette floral-print wrap skirt from Ganni / Golden plissé floral-print dress from Zimmermann

Floral patterns, floral embroideries, floral shapes. It is an ever-green that never fails to show up in each season. It’s all about embracing the joy and romance of spring, actually not just in those months but 365 days a year. Perhaps this is why the floral trend is one that just won’t go away.

The variety is huge. Printed mini-dresses like the plissé one from Zimmermann, that looks exactly like an April country side field with its little shy flowers and herbs. Or the wrap skirt from Ganni that plays with daisies, myosotis and poppies. 

One brand that’s going strong lately its Horror Vacui, a German brand based in Munchen, the capital city of Bavaria. It is inspired by vintage sleepwear and Liberty prints. Every style features thoughtful details that go from scalloped edges and delicate smocking to the intricate prints themselves. Flowers are some of the most used prints. Surely not easy-going but also surely a statement pieces that can be paired with white t-shirt and denim for every day looks.

This trend does not stop at clothing, as there’s always the entire universe of accessories. Silk scarves, purses and even earrings. You just have to choose.
