Chanel Resort 2013 Backstage

When Chanel sent me those backstage photos of the Resort 2013 show, I could not wait to share them with you. It is so nice to see the jewelry and details up close.
Personally speaking, this collection is absolutely divine and the floral embellishments on those dresses above leave me absolutely speechless.

“It is Coco rock, French rock with a very 18th century frivolity, one that’s been updated with new materials and new proportions,” Karl Lagerfeld explained.

Mulberry S/S 2012 Ad Campaign


Mulberry takes us to the seaside for its S/S 2012 campaign

Mulberry’s S/S 2012 season visits the Great British Seaside by way of the UK’s Brighton Beach, inspired by Creative Director Emma Hill’s memories of the English seasides of her childhood. 
This seaside scene was captured by one of my favourite photographers Tim Walker, starring models Frida Gustavsson and Lindsey Wixon. It is Walker’s third campaign he has shot for the English brand. I love the gigantic ice-cream scones and cupcake colours which are a huge trend for S/S 2012. Nostalgic and eclectic, capturing the Mulberry charm in perfection!

LoL, Sandra

At the Versace S/S 2012 Show


It might not be for everyone, but if you like Versace, you are going to fall in love with this S/S 2012 collection. It was truly sexy. Short mini dresses and hot pants were all over the runway. If you were looking for pants, no chance! Pastel colours gave a very feminine approach and even made the studded materials look soft. Of course, there was leather and lots of beautiful embellished  evening gowns. The final look resumed the beginning having a sparkling coral on the belly. And with the help of the Neptune-like prints showing sea shells and corals, Donatella has whetted our appetite for the next summer already.

Get the Look: Candy Colours

Thank you for all your sweet comments on my outfit that I wore to the Stella McCartney F/W 2011 show. Candy colours are just great for summer, they feel fresh and light.



W 2011

The linen blazer and pants are by Stella McCartney as well as the gorgeous Falabella crochet bag and the python-print scarf. I combined the look with nude sandals by Prada and a cardigan by Ralph Lauren Black Label. The taupe-coloured headpiece by Miu Miu is definitely an eyecatcher. I have even made it on the French Vogue website.
