Let’s have a look at Miu Miu’s S/S 2013 ad campaign that is formed of a series of mise-en-scenes and still lives, in a mysterious domestic setting. The muted tones and painterly light of the theatrical setting highlight the vibrant vitality of the cast.
Photographed by Inez Van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin in New York, the campaign follows Miu Miu’s tradition of subverting traditional advertising imagery, this season offering a fresh view of contemporary femininity, rich with nuance and authenticity. High and low materials meet in rooms that have no sense of time or place, bleached wooden paneling and ruby red satin mirroring the duality of materials in the collection.
The cast itself embodies the many facets of a woman’s personality, femme fatales and innocent ingénues, playful belles and nostalgic beauties. This diverse constellation of women share their own private language, in an intimate series of poetic interactions. Nonchalant groupings and abstract close ups reflect both a harmonious closeness and their distinct individuality. Looking in through doors and windows that seem to lead to another world, we encounter a new kind of elegance in this seductive celebration of contemporary femininity.

2013 is starting with a fashionable comeback of previous season’s must-haves of which some could be truly named vintage pieces. Another proof for my closet theory, keep everything, there will be a time to wear it again. So I am very happy to have all those pieces still in my wardrobe…
Olivia embellished leather waist belt by Moschino
The return of the iconic Moschino belt is probably the biggest surprise for me. I bought mine in Rome during my final school trip… a long time ago. It looks so used that I have ordered a new one now. Gosh, who would have thought that?!
The Britannia Skull leather box clutch by Alexander McQueen
This Union Jack-inspired clutch has become officially a true classic and will vamp up every outfit in seconds.
Double-breasted wool-blend blazer by Balmain
First launch for Pre-fall 2010, this blazer of glory sold out in seconds. Now, it is back in black. Hurry up to stock up your colour palette or to finally add this classic to your wardrobe selection.

Dear Santa, I have been a very good girl, so please bring me the BERLINE MINI BAG by Hermès, it is totally my object of desire! And probably yours now, too!
BERLINE BAG by Hermès
Introduced for F/W 2012, the original Berline Bag is available in the size 28 (28×21x9 cm). While it takes on a new colour for S/S 2013, vermillon red, its features, inspired from the Kelly bag and the automobile universe, pay tribute to the house’s unique saddler-stuffer know-how.

BERLINE MINI BAG by Hermès
For the S/S 2013 season, it will be available for the first time as a miniature version in the size 21 (21×17x6 cm). This little sister of the Berline bag showcases Hermès’ saddler-padding know-how with its cushioned leather sections. Although its strap is thinner and longer for relaxed crossbody wear, its clasp and snap hooks take a strong stand in retaining their original size. Available in six colours, with matching strap.

One year ago, 3.1 Phillip Lim launched the PASHLI bag which has become one of the most desirable objects for fashionistas around the globe. This sleek leather satchel is big enough to fit all of your everyday essentials, much like the Céline Boston or Trapeze bag that has become a staple in editors’ wardrobes—but with a slightly more feasible price tag.
I love the functional zip pockets and the under the radar branding – just the perfect balance between classic and contemporary.
For this fall, rich spice tones make up the prevailing colour palette for fall, so upgrade your current carryall to 3.1 Phillip Lim’s burgundy ‘Pashli’ tote. Slide the top handles into the crook of your arm and let this piece complement hushed prints and muted shades. Or opt for a vibrant colour such as pink or fuchsia. The black version will keep your look fashion-forward no matter how busy the day is. 3.1 Phillip Lim bags are available at Net-à-porter, Monnier Frères, Matches and Farfetch among others.
At Saks Fifth Avenue, you can pre-order the upcoming Resort 2013 Pashli totes now.
“The Pashli is cool, easy and chic,” Phillip Lim told Vogue. “The perfect bag for the Phillip Lim girl.” Why is it that as soon as something sells out it becomes even more desirable?
