Do you know that lazy feeling when you are in you are in your pj’s all day and just don’t want to get out of them? You’re lucky then this spring/summer season, because one of the most cozy and comfortable trends this season are pyjamas. Yes, pyjamas. Stella McCartney already proved that you can look very classy in this nightwear-as-daywear trend. Will you step outside wearing your pj’s or will you leave them behind in your bedroom?

The Spring/Summer lookbook 2012 of Canadian bag company Herschel Supply Co. is beyond beautiful. Does it not make you want to get one of those backpacks and go on a roadtrip? Where would you go?

I am obsessed with this nude leather Obsedia bag from Givenchy. Too bad the price is somewhat comparable to my monthly salary.

And have you seen this? How to pronounce Givenchy? It made me laugh out loud.
On March 8 2012, the Marni for H&M collection will hit the stores. Yesterday, the complete lookbook has been revealed and the collection features a series of elegant and playful pieces with eclectic prints in some quirky color combinations. To be honest, I am not the biggest fan of Marni, the signature colors and prints which of course also mark this Marni for H&M collection, are a bit too much for me. But boy do I love some of the ‘simple’ accessories. And this blouse from the men collection. I love the baby blue color. Ph/ Marni for H&M via Vogue.com
P.S. Have you seen the beautiful Marni for H&M video directed by Sofia Coppola?
Lana Del Rey with the new Mulberry tote Rey of Light / Ph. Mulberry blog
As a huge fan of both Mulberry (and also proud owner of an oak colored Mulberry Bayswater) and the gorgeous singer Lana Del Rey, I could not be more excited this morning to read about Rey Of Light. That is the name of the new beautiful Mulberry tote named after, and inspired by Lana Del Rey. It is her old Hollywood style combined with an edgy sense of fun that made Mulberry fall for the mysterious Lana, also famous for her luscious lips.
The Del Rey bag is an elegant, timeless tote with a vintage touch that fits perfectly to Lana’s style. This new addition to the Mulberry family will launch in May 2012 and it part of Mulberry’s Autumn/Winter 2012 collection.

New York Fashion Week has come to an end. London Fashion Week has taken over the fashion spotlight. BUT, I still want to share 3 of my New York fav’s with you.
3.1 Phillip Lim autumn/winter 2012
(ps. did you read my previous post about Phillip Lim?)
Proenza Schouler Autumn/Winter 2012
Vera Wang Autumn/Winter 2012
Let’s start this Friday morning with some laughs.
Scary music, flickering candles and 10 models laying in open-casket coffins. That is how designer Thom Browne debuted at New York Fashion Week last monday. The theme of Browne’s collection was -not surprisingly- dead women. Women who died for fashion to be more specific. Thom Browne’s Fall/Winter 2012-2013 consisted of unusual pieces which looked more like sculptures and even though I am amazed by the construction of it, I personally do not like the collection. I do love how Browne’s show was truly shocking and surprising, and how he made something very creative of it’s debut.

Speaking of women who died for fashion, one day after Browne’s horror show, the 95-year old beloved socialite and fashion icon Zelda Kaplan died at the Joanna Mastroianna show during New York Fashion Week. The old fashionista was sitting front row when suddenly she collapsed. She was a true inspiration for many fashion designers and admired for her lively spirit.
According to Time, designer Richie Rich told the New York Post, “Passing away in the front row was how it was meant to be. Zelda loves fashion so she died for fashion. She would have wanted to go out in style. Zelda always said, “live, live, live and have fun’…I hope the angles are holding her right now.”
It’s odd how Browne’s collection focused on women who died for fashion, and only a few days later one dies front row.
Happy Valentine’s Day.
And also, happy birthday Ladurée. Apparently, the French pastry house is celebrating its 150th birthday this year. Thanks for bringing us delicious, overly-expensive macaroons. Causing cavities since 1862.
