Greece Style

This morning, I went on a little Mediterranean shopping spree. I already got those fabulous Pucci boots and cannot wait to wear them with this stunning blue bead embellished tunic.
The Emilio Pucci S/S 2011 collection is so divine and should be on your shopping list.
In Zurich it is available at Bloom’s.

Doesn’t it remind you of a beautiful Greek island? Ready to make an entrance at cocktail hour?
This is `70s boho  glamour at its best!

A New Day at Balmain

W 2011

Christophe Decarnin

Paris Fashion Week has a new rumour going around since Balmain’s designer Christophe Decarnin was a no-show at the F/W 2011 show yesterday. Decarnin reportedly is in a „mental hospital“ and wasn’t even involved in the fall collection at all, and Melanie Ward, who was previously named to be working along with Decarnin on the designs, actually created it all with the French brand’s in-house team. Ward is best known for her work with the nineties fashion star Helmut Lang.

Today, a Balmain spokesman said that „Decarnin was involved in the design and absent from the show under doctor’s order, after having been treated for depression.“ Poor designers, they seem to suffer from all their stress and some go bananas. After Galliano, who’s show on Sunday got cancelled after his problems this week, now it is Decarnin.

W 2011 -2

It’s definitely a new day at Balmain, the collection was missing the embroidered glitz and second-skin tight trousers, more seventies than eighties. The new pant is deeply cuffed and cropped below the knee, worn with kind of cool lace-up boots. My favourites are the metallic leather blazers that come in ice blue (love!) and yellow gold.

Aiming High


Camilla Skovgaard F/W 2010

Camilla Skovgaard F/W 2010

High heeled, stilettoed, up to the thigh, those boots are insane and definitely to become the hits of the season. Just imagine your legs in them! Those jaw-dropping models from the F/W 2010 collections will make you speechless and others green with envy.

The overknee is going to stay for another season, love the Burberry ones. You could feel a saloon-girl approach in detail and line at Balmain or Givenchy, lace-up and mid-calf, you are ready to dance the Can-Can. But no worries, it is a very modern look, not at all disguised.

Architecturally amazing are the soles of Viktor & Rolf, even if they seem to be a copy of Camilla Skovgaard`s signature style (see left).

Buckled, fringed – there are certainly no rules, experiment with such a variety of shapes and models. I am sure that there is already one that has conquered your heart! To be in stores soon…

LoL, Sandra
