Michael Kors Spring- Summer 2015

11 Sep

KOR_0099Normally we talk about fashion on Wednesdays but… have you seen the amazing collection that Michael Kors presented yesterday in New York? As soon as I saw the first images on Instagram I fell in love. Absolutely gorgeous yet wearable. I’m sure you can picture yourself in at least three of the looks. I don’t think that you have to be a super model to look beautiful in these outfits, they seem to be designed for real women. Here you have my favourite looks, if you’d like to see. (And please take a look at the shoes! Flats!)

7 travel destinations for design lovers

15 Jul

1. Barcelona

One name: Gaudí. His work is admired by architects around the world as being one of the most unique and distinctive architectural styles. His work has greatly influenced the face of Barcelona architecture and you will see stunning examples of Gaudí’s work all around the city centre.

2. New York

One area: the meat packing district. Design-forward restaurants, bars, clothing boutiques, galleries, and artists’ residences in a neighborhood formerly known for its meat warehouses.

3. Berlin

One place: The Bauhaus Archive Museum of Design collects art pieces, items, documents and literature which relate to the Bauhaus School (1919–1933), one of the most influential schools of architecture, design, and art of the 20th century.

4. Paris

One sight: the futuristic skyscraper business district known as La Défense.  Plans have been approved for the Hermitage Towers — a project designed by British architect Norman Foster. When finished, these twin towers will be the tallest skyscrapers in Europe.

5. Marrakech

One garden:  Jardin Marjorelle. The garden is named after its creator, Jacques Majorelle, a French born artist who settled in Marrakesh in 1919 to continue his career as a painter. Majorelle died in 1962 and the gardens remained unkept, until 1980, when the French fashion designer Yves Saint Laurent and his partner Pierre Bergé bought the property and restored it.

6. Milan:

One museum: the Triennale Design Museum. Opened in 2007, this is the first museum of Italian design. It offers the visitor the chance to discover the excellence of Italian design through unedited points of view. The permanent collection holds an interesting cross-section of Italian furniture and housewares.

7. Porto:

One river: at the mouth of the Douro River, the medieval city of Porto, Portugal, is undergoing an architectural renaissance. Old world icons, such as the baroque Torre dos Clérigos bell tower , contrast with contemporary buildings by Pritzker Prize–winning architects Álvaro Siza Vieira and Eduardo Souto de Moura.

Moodboard: New York

We’ve never been to New York. There, we’ve said it. Everytime we plan to go there… well, something happens and we change our plans. But we can’t stop thinking about this city. We think about how romantic it would be in Autumn, how charming spending Christmas there might be, how intriguing a Summer in the empty city could feel.. and we’d love to get to know New York in Spring.

Katharine Hepburn: Dressed for Stage and Screen

21 Nov

If you happen to be in New York before January 12, 2013 you should visit Katharine Hepburn: Dressed for Stage and Screen, the exhibition organized by the Kent State University Museum at the New York Public Library.
This woman was amazing. I love the magnificient elegance in her filmography and her tomboy style outside the screen. She was a truly trendsetter.
More information about the exhibition here
