The Marni x H&M collection from my point of view. I have to say this collection is waaay more me than the Versace x H&M one, more toned down, awesome materials and some strong pieces. My favorites are the patent caramel leather mixed with grey fabric top, a bag in that same caramel color, the shoes (so comfy!), the pyjama suit, the patent black leather mixed with blue fabric jacket and even those yellow earrings. I know I haven’t exactly been a spokesperson for earrings in the past few years, but I’m getting more and more into them and they could really make a statement, no?
These Alaïa lace-ups (and every other version/color of them) have been growing on me lately. They are the ultimate sexy shoe and I could use a shoe like that. I can see ‘em collaborating with my Dr Denim (rolled up) jeans, with my Acne boyfriend jeans and even with a leather skirt. Too bad I need to be thinking interior now – since I’m moving in together with my boyfriend this weekend – so no happy feet for me in the next few months. That is unless I want to sit on the floor instead of an actual couch… Hmm, have to think about it.
The show that I of course was most excited about while in London for Fashion Week is Burberry Prorsum. I would have never thought I’d be visiting shows this big, but my little girls dreams have been really coming true lately (I mean, Margiela, Viktor & Rolf, Rodarte). So, if Christopher Bailey would be dressing all women next season, the streets would be filled with cool cropped jackets in either a brown suède or an army green bomber version, with an exception of a tiny houndstooth printed wool coat or a chocolate brown suède button down one. I could live in a world like that. Especially in a world where also an oversized forest green cropped cardigan, crocodile leather gloves in either an orange or yellow hue are added and where peplums are taken to the next level.
afterDRK was created by Sabrina Meijer in 2009 with the intent of appealing to all fashion seekers, especially the ones that have a slight appreciation for simplicity, but always with some sort of edge.
