The last show created by Karl Lagerferd, who passed away on February 19th, started by 1 minute of silence in memory of him, his massive impact on the fashion industry, his brilliant ‘assaults‘ and his genius (unfortunately some people could not resist themselves from recording it with their mobile phone devices…).

Cara Delavigne opened the winter wonderland show and Penelope Cruz made her debut on the runway, in total white, angelic look, holding white rose in honor of Karl. Show finale with all of the models, walking in the rhythm of Heroes by Bowie, was just breath-taking.

Show was filled up with mono-color looks, but spiced up with combination of different kinds of check pattern, traditionally for Chanel, in tweed. I was amazed by details like jewellery and matching outfits hats and bags, lining of coats in patterns like check, zigzags. although runway was dominated by neutrals and whites, we could spot total looks in strong turquoise, pink or red.

Spring has a big role in my life – I was born in Spring and every year I can’t wait till the end of March! Although  I’m not in stage where I want to get older anymore, and sometimes reality hits me hard when someone asks me about my age, Spring brings me an inexplicable feeling of joy and new beginnings, and I know I’m not the only one (probably because people used to celebrate New Year during Spring way back before Christianity kicked (aggressively) in and we have it in gens).

Anyways, with New beginnings comes new inspirations, and we going to focus on these straight out from Runways!

IMG_5576Oversized Trench Coat from &Other Stories

If you don’t have trench coat in your collection, you definitely need to get one – it’s going to serve you ages, as it never goes out of style, makes ANY outfit look ‘put together’ and you can literally wear it every day – with everything from cocktail dresses, to classic denim and t-shirt day, to after gym throw on. Total beige looks are prognozed to be a BIG trend and trench coat is essential in creating them! I choose the one from &Other Stories, because it’s extra affordable regarding it’s amazing quality, and for its oversized hourglass shape , which gives you that extra dramatic vibe during casual days!

Stella McCartney Square-frame acetate sunglasses

Big sunglasses are officially back! This time we are taking inspiration from ’70s, so either dig in your parents wardrobe for some vintage pieces, or get the ones from Stella McCartney! Why the ones from Stella? These sunglasses are made of recycled plastic and come with vegan leather case, so if you care about our planet and animals (if not, you should start), these babies are just made for you!

 

 

1Maria La Rosa Striped cotton-blend socks

These are an amazing idea for extra affordable yet luxurious present or well deserved treat for yourself. I love the contrasting shades situation and a smart sneak-in of this seasons most famous neon-green, so if it’s not the color that compliments you, or you just can’t cotton on to neon-green, this is the way to try it!

Ksubi straight-leg white jeans

Nothing feels better than a good pair of denim jeans on! I was never quite convinced to white jeans, but I have changed my mind when I saw these Ksubi jeans! I want to invest in good quality pieces (as I mentioned in My 5 New Year resolutions – fashion edition!), and these are on my list! I already see them with my oversized trench coat and ’70s sunglasses!
