Blake Lively on the Set of Gossip Girl

Blake Reed Krakoff Trench

When I came across those photos of Blake Lively last week on the set of Gossip Girl, I fell immediately in love with the colour combination of her aqua blue clutch by Emily Cho, the yellow of her bi-colour trenchoaticon by Reed Krakoff (S/S 2012 collection) and the pale pink of her pumps by Rupert Sanderson.

Bag Fight

What do you think? Isn’t the Emily Cho clutch a little too similiar to the iconic folded-over style of the one made by Alexander McQueenicon?! And the prices are pretty much the same.
Which one would you buy? I would definitely go for De Manta clutch by McQueen…

At the Tommy Hilfiger Men S/S 2012 Show

IMG_8981

The Tommy Hilfiger Men S/S 2012 collection celebrates the house’s iconic look, true preppiness.

Tommy seems like being on a mission to turn the world into a preppy place. With the success of his own Prep world pop-up tour, the American designer created with the help of consulting designers Simon Spurr and stylist Karl Templer, a collection filled with colour blocking, varsity jackets, chinos, seersucker and nautical stripes. Colours inspired by pop art made even classic knits and polos a bit twisted. The camouflage prints reminded me a little too much of Prada, but they were still fun.

A surprising and very wearable collection: Highly civilized, slightly rebellious! Well done!

Enjoy all the behind the scenes and runway photos!

LoL, Sandra

Male models waited for the arriving guests with a cool bottle of beer. What a lovely idea as the sun was burning down on the High Line in Chelsea where the show took place.

The Chanel Patchwork Bag

The Patchwork Bag


Today I would like to share my newest addition to my closet. For me it was love at first sight!
Let me introduce you to the multicoloured Chanel patchwork bag that is part of their Cruise 2011 collection.
A unique and interesting looking flap bag that is very versatile due to its many different shades, perfect for travelling. Already spotted on Blair Waldorf in Gossip Girl’ s first episode of Season 4 and on Lilly Becker last week.

Ready for a Catfight?

Catfight

My object of desire at the moment is this animal print trench dress from Gucci`s pre-fall 2010 collection, available now at Neiman Marcus and Gucci stores for approximately $2300.-. Spotted this month already at Queen B Leighton Meester on the Gossip Girl set in New York, this piece is a must!

The dress is so versatile and works perfectly for different occassions. You can wear it in the office with a blazer and dress it up with some sharp overknee boots plus a `70s inspired fur bolero or vest for a night out. I am totally in love with the shoulder details.

So Ladies, sharpen your claws and get ready for the catfight!

LoL, Sandra
