It may come as a surprise that I bought my first ever “I’m going to wear this hat” hat and not a “this would look good on the wall till I get myself to put it on” hat last year when I went out shopping and it unexpectedly started raining, leaving my frizzy hair in an unspeakable shape, forcing me to finally consider a fedora. The first one was of course black, an all black simple fedora from Urban Outfitters. I loved it so much that the family started to grow rapidly, an heather grey felt hat from Lack of Color (see irl here) and a camel fedora from Asos (on me). Next in line? This Janessa Leone straw hat. Now I’m not calling it a trend because I have three but because I’ve been seeing hats everywhere, so if three’s a trend what exactly is a million?
I know they won’t even be in the stores for at least another 6 months, but the shoes were all I could think about during fashion month. Shoes are all I can think about most of the time. From Proenza‘s knots to Phillip Lim‘s laceups, Céline‘s square toes to Valentino and Rouland Mouret‘s zippers, Isabel Marant‘s buckles to Christian Dior‘s patent knee highs; there were a lot of trends to take note of but there was only ONE trend that’s worth the attention because Gucci & Maison Margiela & Fendi & Vivienne Westwood & Salvatore Ferragamo and Balenciaga said so, together: FUR. Fur is the only thing you should carry on, around and under your feet this fall.
If you live in a country where in a diagram, all the arrows eventually point to the answer “winter is coming”, this next thing I’ll say is going to make so much sense to you: sunglasses are actually a winter accessory. When endless snow meets the frostbite herald sunlight, you either put on sunglasses or go blind. My husband found it a little hard to accept this fact but eventually he gave in. But how could you not, especially when there’s so many beautiful eyewear to shop for in the middle of the season? The two must have designs? This Céline pair with the metal bridge (or get it for a fraction of a price *wink wink* here) or the RayBan rounds. .
Rochas Spring/Summer 2015 Among hundreds of trends swooping down on us from S/S 2015 runways like sperms reaching out for the ovary, this caught my attention the most because, well, it’s about shoes. From Rochas to Simone Rocha, Sharon Wauchob to Dries Van Noten; it’s all about feathers, confetti straps or leather fringes. Another way to get your feet in the mood for spring is satin knots, thanks to Cédric Charlier and No.21 – a rather saner option.
This up there is the only way I can deal with my hair when it’s actually summer out there. When you have frizzy, kinda curly hair that you can not tame or leave as is (because not everyone has dreamy shampoo commercial curls) a headband as big as your head and a flirty little bow (or a turban knot) is all you need. .
