Giedre Dukauskaite at Givenchy Haute Couture AW2019
Trendspotting lots of plumage details at SS2020 and Haute Couture AW2019 collections, which made me research some of my old favorites from the archives. Also there are plenty from Ann Demeulemeester, which I left out from the photos.
Elsa Peretti Teardrop earrings, Harper’s Bazaar 1974
My December thoughts are now at Flounce.fi. This month I’m very into minimal jewellery with soft lines. I spotted the new Swedish brand, MUR, on instagram a while back and been thinking about their rings ever since.
Here’s some outfit inspirations for rainy Sunday (at least it’s pouring rain in Paris). Lately I’ve been saving several photos of Carolyn Bessette-Kennedy’s chic 90’s looks in my inspiration folders. I’m still very into the combination of midi skirt and knee high -boots.
I lost my faith at one point for fashion exhibitions as I wrote earlier. I understand their purpose, it is to serve the masses and promote the brand to the public as a new way of advertisement.
However, there is a difference between retrospective exhibitions and exhibitions organized by the brand. I recently visited at Palais Galleira, which is currently hosting a Martin Margiela retrospective, art directed by Margiela himself. As having an obsession towards fashion archives and history, this exhibitions was truly food to my soul. Margiela’s influence in fashion could be seen so clearly, plus they were showcasing some most precious archive pieces which would be impossible to find anywhere else. I can’t recommend this one enough. MARGIELA / GALLIERA, 1989-2009, Palais Galliera until 15th July 2018
Stella McCartney for Chloé
A while back I visited Maison Chloé for their Guy Bourdin exhibition, which I have to say was really bad. And don’t take me wrong, I adore Guy Bourdin and Chloé used to be one of my favourite brands, it is just wrong to claim that they have something in common. However, I’m always excited to see some archive pieces. Above the iconic horse dresses from the era when Stella McCartney was the creative director.
Balenciaga dress, AW1958
Few days back I visited Kering’s and Balenciaga’s headquarters and had an opportunity to take a peak to some archive pieces. As I’ve been very into green lately, this dress ended up being my favourite.
It has been a while since I shared my Balenciaga by Nicolas Ghesquiere favourites so here’s one; the shearling biker jacket that was also re-created by Demna Gvasalia. I have to admid I’ve spent unreasonable amount of time at Vestiaire to hunt some pieces from this collection.
Margiela for Hermès AW2001
Céline Pre Fall 2017
Unconditional Magazine SS2017
The Row SS2015
Margiela the Hermès Years – exhibition left me longing for straight and strapless necklines. As refreshing as it was to visit an exhibition where no photos were allowed, I would have loved to share details from some of my favourite looks, such as a strapless wool jumpsuit from AW2001 collection.
This shape can look easily tacky, but combined with long and volumous bottom makes it interesting and in a right way akward.
While I’m writing a bachelor’s thesis about sustainable underwear, my desktop is filling up with images on the subject, or close to it.
