ON MY MIND – BASICS

ON MY MIND – BASICS

Jeans from Jean Atelier / Sweater from Proenza Shouler / Cowboy boots from Zara / Bag from Mango / basic beret from Zara 

Following trends is definitely cool, challenging and inspiring but sometimes it’s better to stick with old-good-never-boring basics. Grey jeans, white sweater, satin knot bag, beret and a bit of trend with colorful cowboy boots, it’s what I have in mind for this Monday.

 

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.

Polaroid in: dress from COS, sunglasses from Zara, artisan straw bag 

Got to spend a day in this hilltop village that gives you the best view on the Azure, that’s the coastline of course. As you can see I embraced the straw bag trend which did not affect me until a few months ago… now I own two of them, couldn’t resist. They are nice both during holidays and in the city, as it can give a twist to the basic jeans and shirt look ( what I go for the most when I am in the office, boring. )

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. 

 

BEAUTY FAVE #1

BEAUTY FAVE #1

Huile Prodigieuse Dry Oil by Nuxe 

Since buying it in the early spring months, this multifunctional dry oil created in 1991 by the French brand Nuxe, I am able to understand the hype around this product that can be found in every French girl’s medicine cabinet. As they always say. 

It is intended to work between body, face and hair. It’s packed with vitamin E and six different plant oils, including macadamia and St. John’s Wort. Important to note is that it is also silicone-free. One thing I really like about the oil, is totally its smell that reminds me of a mix between camellia and almond oil. You just need the littlest amount of product, both if you are using it on your air and on your skin, in which I’ve noticed the smell stays for such a long time.

A product that should be found in every girl’s medicine cabinet, not just in the French girls ones.

 

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.
