Wunderkind S/S 2013 – Wolfgang Is Back


Wolfgang Joop is back on the Paris Fashion Week calendar with his label Wunderkind. Yesterday, the German designer presented his beautiful S/S 2013 collection to the fashionable guests.

After the show, he was talking about how the world will change in the next years and that we should be prepared for it. He said that “at times of change, we look for new directions – earthly heaven and paradise. Grace and gravity is the theme of the collection: effortless but understated and circumspect.”

Wunderkind S:S2013

Personally speaking, I have liked the collection a lot, especially the second part of it. The prints and soft feminine colours were so pretty. Paradiso and Heaven are the centerpiece prints and iconic drawings by Wolfgang Joop, along with Butterfly and Tipsy dots in light coloures shades.

The soft fluid tailored coats, jackets and dresses in crêpe du chine, silk gabardine, silk georgette, cotton batiste and coarse-meshed linen in taupe and chalk, azure, peppermint, lotus, watermelon and yellow interplayed between multiple combinations and layering. Cartridge folds, facings and organza ribbons tuck the light falling fabrics.

Below are some of my favourite looks. Hope you like them, too!

LoL, Sandra

Trend S/S 2010: Focus on Legs

Focus on the Legs

The focus is on legs for summer, tons of mini skirts and hot pants paraded down the runways. According to the remarkable decrease in the length of the hemlines, the lower part of the body seemed to become the main attraction for decoration. Tights, along with other types of legwear like leggings, legwarmers or socks, made a sizzling fashion statement.

As nylons had always been a no-go in sandals, the trend of the open toe booties posed a real dilemma to me this winter especially that I hate cold feet. I am always admiring the French journalists during the fashion weeks showing-up effortlessly bare-legged whatever the weather. So honestly, I am curious if French ladies are going to adapt to the new trend. They have that nonchalant way of looking elegantly stylish that I truly so adore.


Fact is that there were also many Parisian designers like John Galliano for Christian Dior or Jean-Paul Gaultier who sent their models in sandals combined with sweet little socks down the runway.


The photos give you a taste of what is to come. Do not be shocked by those, they might show the look in an extreme way. Get inspired by those tendencies and interpret them in your very own way. Remove taboos and stimulate your spirits!

Tied Up

Plus if you do not have those perfectly tanned marvellous legs, tights will be the perfect alternative to go mini. I am totally in love with those laced-up ones below from the Chanel S/S 2010 show. Wolford has a similiar version for sale on their website at the moment. Enjoy this young look!
