Current status: missing my bike. Also current status: second winter anyone? It doesn’t look like I’m going to use that bike anytime soon. At least not tomorrow or the day after that. So, in the meantime, I’m going to stare at the stunning white version above…

Folch Studio
This picture found on the beautiful tumblr coffee stained cashmere almost makes me want to base my decisions uniquely on the look of the product, so everything can fit together perfectly. Maybe this is going „a bit“ too far, and yet: from time to time I can’t help but think that making my bathroom visually as streamlined as this would be quite fantastic.
In case you were wondering: black q-tips are an actual thing, at least in Japan. And they say you can learn nothing from blogs.

Wanted

There are a few posts lined up this week, some of them covering heavier topics (such as the oh-so-much-discussed Saint Laurent collection). So, before things get a little deeper, let’s take a look at a few lovely things…

(6) Mr Porter is known for all kind of things such as menswear and style. They are also known for giving good advice where advice is needed and for portraying beautifully style icons. Put all those things together and in print: you have a very much coveted book. (4) This tiny camera by Minox would certainly fit into any bag that I own. That could be reason enough, but let’s not kid ourselves: I would probably buy that one for the looks only. Same thing applies when it comes to this watch. (3) I sure do need (!) one on my wrist by now and yet…the Uniform Wares version could be easily seen as nothing more than an accessory. (1) and (2)  There is still snow outside, people! And all I can think about is spring. And all white looks. The off-white sweatshirt by Iro seems like a good option (I quite like the  short sleeves with turned-up cuffs), especially when combined with a white jean (slightly on the slouchy side). (5) The final touch would be brought courtesy by Converse. Good old chucks. They don’t need any introduction, right? For some, they might be too „cliché“. For me, they seem just right.

(1) Iro: Leola Sweat Top (2) Rag & Bone: The Dash Jean (3) Uniform Wares: 250 Series Steel Wristwatch (4) Minox: DCC 14.0 Camera (5) Converse: Chuck Taylor All Star (6) Mr Porter Paperback

Just a quick post to wrap up the weekend and it just seems right to throw in some black and white action.

It is nice to throw a few pictures together and see how they interact. That is after all how this blog started out initially. A few relaunches and a Tumblr site later, I still enjoy playing around visually. Especially when the outcome is as gorgeous as above.

Julio López Saguar is not a new name on this blog (the post can be found here). Nevertheless it deserves yet another mentioning and the reason for that can be found above.

Sometimes you just have to put two and two together. Or in that case combine a lighter/ brighter shade with a darker/ subtler one.

Back then: the transparent clutch. Right now: the chrome handle leather tote. Maison Martin Margiela knows how to stay on our minds for sure.

Valentino fall 2013
Another day. Another cape. Or so they say. As you know I’m leaning heavily toward a wool coat investment wise. But then again, seeing all these beautiful capes leave me wondering…
Let’s snap back to reality. And to the picture above. Yes, it is indeed one of these looks which remind me of the Céline aesthetic. Exquisite tailoring and no fuss. Maybe the overall longing for minimalism and less frills have caught on with others designers and translates therefore in a cleaner approach here and there. What counts in the end is that you can still spot the signature of each individual label and as a matter of fact Valentino’s designer duo did this successfully even with an all white and all clean look (the  hood, the shoes, the headband, the styling).
Even though I could probably go on and on about this all white look, I would like to direct your attention to yet another eye candy from their fall 2013 collection. Now, who doesn’t want to snatch that dress right from the runway?
