Alberta Ferretti’s Rainbow Week

Launched for the first time as a limited-edition capsule collection directly after the Pre-fall 2017 runway as a see-now-buy-now movement, Alberta Ferretti‘s so-called «Rainbow Week» consists of seven wool and cashmere sweaters in mood-boosting hues, each dedicated to a day of the week. Some come in cropped versions, others such as «Friday» in a more comfy oversized look.

I am sure that you do remember this «days of the week underwear» that probably many of you wore as a child. I actually loved those and here is the adult version. Now, the Italian designer takes its successful idea to new heights with a re-issue of the «Rainbow Week» in different vibrant or pastel colors as well as striped pieces that say «Today», «Tomorrow» and «Yesterday». Moreover there are now bathing suits, T-shirts, cropped tops, hats and fake fur jackets available in matching shades.

You can mix and match the colors and style the must-have pieces with your favorite pair of jeans for the perfect off-duty look or dress them up with a sexy lace skirt as Alberta Ferretti has shown it on the runway. I love all combinations!

My Next Balenciaga Shoe Crush

After the fabulous and already iconic Knife boots and sequin-embellished satin pumpsDemna Gvasalia looks to Balenciaga‘s archives for inspiration for Pre-fall 2017, sifting through 30 years’ worth of founder Cristóbal‘s imagery. Exploring the link between couture and fetishism and set on a slanted kitten heel, these sharply pointed mules have been crafted in Italy from smooth satin and topped with a bow. The plunging vamp creates the illusion of longer, leaner legs. I prefer them in vivid jewel-tone colors.

Be fast as they are selling out like crazy and opt for one of the season’s most iconic silhouettes:

Pimp Your Ace

When you have thought that your GUCCI Ace Sneakers were already on top of the fashion tribe, you are mistaken. It is time to pimp you footwear and make them truly unique.

For Pre-fall 2017 Gucci offers a large variety of fun embroidered leather embellishments that can be secured and removed using the metal snaps at the back. But careful when you order, they ship as single pieces. So if you prefer the same ones on both shoes, you have to get two.

Have fun mixing-and-matching with your compatible Ace styles!
Available for pre-order by clicking hereicon. Delivery between now and 15/06/2017.
And I am sure that the clips work for other sneakers, too…:-).

LoL, Sandra
