Stella x Taylor Swift

To support the release of her new album «Lover,» out this week on August 23, 2019 Taylor Swift announced that she’s working with British fashion designer Stella McCartney on a special—and sustainable—fashion collaboration, featuring organic fabrics, leather made from recycled polyester and vegetable waste oils, and even a reusable water bottle.

«She’s been a friend for a really long time, and also just a woman I respect so much,» Swift said of McCartney during an Instagram Live. The collection is inspired by the songs on the album, and is including a bomber jacket, purse, and many tees in all sorts of amazing pastel hues and tie-dyes. You don’t need to be a teenager to like those pieces…

Tune in to Taylor’s YouTube channel at 5pm EST on August 22, 2019 to see Stella and Taylor reveal more about their creative process.

The collection will be available in a special pop-up store in New York City called «The Lover Experience» that will take place between August 23-25, 2019 and online here. It seems to be the only place fans will be able to purchase the limited edition tees (at least for now). The jacket and purse, however, will also be available on Stella McCartney’s website starting the night of August 22, 2019.

LoL, Sandra

My Look: Jurassic World

Sandra_Bauknecht_Jurassic_World_Saint_laurent_Dinosaur_Jacket_Gucci_Sandals

«Dino Cool» – the hype and success of Jurassic World hit the catwalk. Combined with one of the oldest dyeing techniques (with first traces found in ancient Egypt) that was popular in the 70’s, tie dye, it creates a cool look. The cherry on the cake is Marc Jacobs‘ eye-catching take on the American Flag. Perfect for me as I am leaving to New York today… stay tuned.

My look: Embellished striped wool and linen-blend and leather bomber jacket and tie-dyed cotton-jersey T-shirt, both by Saint Laurent, black jeans by Dolce & Gabbana,
embroidered denim clutch by Marc Jacobsicon, embellished metallic leather sandals and aviator-style metal sunglasses, both by Gucci.

LoL, Sandra

At the Miu Miu S/S 2013 Show

Miu Miu S:S 2013 Cover

“It’s about elegance, not elegance. Couture, not couture. Tailoring, not tailoring,” Miuccia Prada told WWD.

Her S/S 2013 Miu Miu collection was all about contrasts, the Italian designer let herself be inspired by the silhouettes of the ’50s and ’60s, to which she offered her own iconic twist.

Miu_Miu_SS2013_4

Flats worn to glamourous embellished outfits, rich luxurious fabrics downgraded through tie-dye and crushing and fur all over for summer walked down the runway to the sounds of “I’ve Got You Under My Skin” which almost seemed macabre in a good way. Think Mad Men meets Hitchcock in a contemporary way.

Splendid yet effortless, and with ease, she changes her style without never loosing her signature. The ideas and inspirations may be complicated, but this is her intelligent approach to fashion. And amazingly as it seems, she always makes it look easy.

Miuccia Prada had converted the Palais d’Iéna into a wooden maze designed by Rem Koolhaas’ OMA, with thick velvet curtains changing the ambiance  of the venue, that is usually bathed in natural light, into something mysterious right before the show .
