ENG: It's almost spring time! In honor of the first sun rays, I decided to parade my new shoes (as seen here). But the beginning of spring doesn't only give permission to wear open-toed shoes again, no it also allows to wear lighter jackets! I opted for a sporty blazer (its best feature: electric blue lining on the inside!) paired with tailored chiffon trousers. As the shoes make the outfit appear quite formal, I dressed it down with a statement shirt...

Fashion Week 14 - London


Mary Katrantzou

ENG: My favorite show from the London Fashion Week was Mary Katrantzou. I especially enjoyed the combination of dark colors such as red, blue and green paired with lighter, silvery colors and the material mix, for example the outfit on the bottom right -an embroidered fur sweater paired with a shimmery skirt. The collection reminded me of Alice in Wonderland, I'm not sure why -maybe because of the long dresses, the detailing and the splendid embellishments. The designer got inspired by uniforms -which is why the usual prints and patterns were replaced by graphic symbols. Although the looks, especially the shapes, were quite plain, the symbols gave it an interesting imaginative touch and managed to create a lot of different looks based on one idea.

Fashion Week 14 - New York


Rebecca Taylor

ENG: Finding a show to review from the New York Fashion Week was quite difficult. There are just so many, it's impossible to look at all of them and for some reason I had trouble picking one that I entirely enjoyed. Finally I came across the Rebecca Taylor show. It's a very untypical collection, considering it's for autumn/winter and there were a lot of spring-related colors such as baby blue, nude, lilac and even pink snakeskin patterns. 
Most of the looks consisted of laser cut mesh tops, cocoon shaped coats, flowing trousers as well as loose cut skirts and fuzzy sweaters. The collection showed a very cool, yet sophisticated vibe with a lot of wearable pieces and a new, independent touch. 
Besides, the shoes were A+.

Fashion Week 14 - Berlin


Kaviar Gauche 14

ENG: As most of you know, it's fashion week time, and I have spent the last few days impatiently waiting for uploads on youtube, online streams or even just Instagram photos. (On that note: Most of the popular fashion magazines, like Vogue or Elle, have videos of the shows on their websites!) 
Since there are so many fashion shows in so many different cities, I decided to pick one or two that I enjoyed most from each city. This one is the défilé of the label "Kaviar Gauche" represented at the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in Berlin. 
Now, where to start? If I had to sum it up in one sentence I would probably say it was a modern, bohemian interpretation of ascot (the hats!) in the twenties (feathers!). Although there were a lot of dandy elements, such as monkstraps, smoking jackets and trousers the collection also had a very feminine touch, created by long transparent dresses, lace detailing and small black belts. Almost the entire collection was monochrome, just a few looks in orange and white replaced by an ivory-color. 
I really liked the simplicity and elegance of this show, it's definitely a label to keep an eye on in my opinion!

Grey Stripes, Take 2

Coat : Zara 
Shirt : Cos
Skirt : H&M
Shoes : Asos
This post has been featured on Teen Vogue Fashion Click.

ENG: It's actually blue stripes this time...Just because I was wearing a blue coat and I found the blue stripes much better than the grey ones! This makes me feel more guilty than it should!
However, for Take 2 I'm wearing a new pleated leather skirt (see it's first blog appearance here) and a blue cocoon coat. Since the first outfit with a grey striped shirt was quite casual I thought it would be suitable to dress up this time, therefore I wanted to wear a skirt. Besides I really like material mixes such as wool and leather.
Click here to see Grey Stripes Take 1!

DEU: Eigentlich sind es blaue Streifen dieses Mal. Da der Mantel blau ist, fand ich blaue Streifen angemessener als graue! Wie auch immer, für Take 2 habe ich einen Faltenrock aus Leder (hier könnt ihr sein erstes Erscheinen auf dem Blog sehen) und einen blauen Cocoon Mantel ausgewählt. 
Hier könnt ihr Grey Stripes Take 1 sehen!

FR: Pour être honnête, ces sont des rayures bleu cette fois-ci. Vue que le manteau est bleu, j'ai préférée les rayures bleus aux rayures gris! Enfin, pour Take 2 j'ai choisi un jupe plissé en cuir (dont le première post sur le blog vous pouvez voir ici) et un manteau bleu en forme de cocon.
Voici vous pouvez voir Grey Stripes Take 1!

Waiting for Spring

Crop Top : Zara
Shorts : H&M
Heels : Zara
Sunglasses : Urban Outfitters
Nail Polish : Chanel N°491

ENG: I know it's only february, but I'm already impatiently waiting for Spring. Spring has always been my favorite season, especially fashion-wise. I can wait to wear all the nice stuff that has been hanging on my clothing rail since October, desperately waiting to be worn (okay that is too dramatic, but honestly I've been desperately looking at them!) Recently I got these amazing Zara Heels, they are quite versatile and can easily be dressed up or down. The outfit shown above is definitely corresponding to dressed up, concerning the shorts are completely covered in sparkly embroidery. Unfortunately the lightning does not allow the top to be shown properly -I tried to edited the first one, but well....It's rib knitted and has very long sleeves. To add some springlike colors I would use a pinkish/reddish nail polish and add some "summer bracelets" -friendship bracelets or woven bangles etc. to create that effortless style. 

DEU: Obwohl es erst Februar ist, warte ich schon ganz ungeduldig auf den Frühling. Frühling war schon immer meine Lieblingsjahreszeit, besonders was Mode betrifft. In Gedanken stelle ich schon Outfits mit den Sachen zusammen, die seit Oktober ungetragen auf meiner Kleiderstange hängen.
Vor ein paar Tagen habe ich diese perfekten Sandalen bekommen, sie sind ziemlich vielseitig einsetzbar und können sowohl sehr elegant als auch sehr unbemüht aussehen. Das oben gezeigte Outfit trifft wohl eher auf elegant zu, besonders durch die Kombination mit den bestickten Shorts. Leider ist die Belichtung nicht sehr vorteilhaft für das schwarze Top, es ist aus Rippstrick und hat überlange Ärmel. Um das Ganze etwas frühlingshafter und weniger up-dressed wirken zulassen, würde ich einen roten oder pinkfarbenen Nagellack auswählen -außerdem vielleicht ein paar Sommerarmbänder, also Freundschaftsbändchen oder Flechtarmbänder.

FR: Bienque le février vient juste de commencer, je pense déjà au printemps. Le printemps a toujours été ma saison préférée, surtout concernant la mode. Dans ma tête je suis déjà en train de créer des tenues avec les vêtement qui attendent depuis le mois d'octobre sur mon porte-manteau.
Il y a quelque jours que j'ai reçu ces sandales au talon formidable. Elles sont très polyvalentes, on peut les porter d'une façon élégante mais aussi d'une façon léger. Le photo montré au dessus correspond plutôt à la façon élégante, grâce au short brodé. Malheureusement on ne peut pas bien voir le top noir, l'exposition n'est pas assez claire. C'est un top côtelée avec des manches très longues. Pour ajouter un look plus printanière, je porterais un vernis rouge/rose et des bracelets d'été comme des bracelets tressé.
