If there’s something you should know about me is that I definitely don’t buy/wear/do things just because others do. I also don’t stop wearing things just because everyone else does. I confess that even as a teenager I never understood this mindset. If I buy or wear something it is because I genuinely love it and it adheres authentically to my style and aesthetic. It doesn’t matter to me whether anyone or everyone wears it. So is the case of this J.W. Anderson Pierce bag, which was love at first sight on Farfetch as I was looking for the infamous ruffled boots, even before anyone started wearing it. However, it’s not as if everyone is wearing it (yet), but trust me, if there is an ‘It’ bag in the making for the upcoming season, it is this one.
I’ve been an avid fan of fashion’s wunderkind J.W. Anderson since I was first introduced to his minimalistic, yet playful designs around 3 years ago. To my surprise, his eponymous label started introducing shoes and a handbag last season and both were covet worthy and instant wishlist candidates.
The sleek and minimal shape, clear lines, and distinctive and edgy hardware of this J.W. Anderson bag gives it potential to be the bag of 2016. I am pretty sure we’ll be seeing it during Fashion Week. However, if I could name one detail about it that I love the most is that you can carry it in different ways: as an elegant handbag, as a practical shoulder bag leaving your hands free, and last, but not least, as a clutch.

As we’re going to be moving to Munich in a couple of months, I’m already thinking about how to decorate our new place. Not surprisingly, I will opt for a minimal black and white design with Scandinavian aesthetics. Some of my favorite shops like the awesomeTrendmöbel24, Connox, and Furniturebox have already provided me with a few of these things and they offer Scandinavian classics at great prices.
The awesome chair is from Zuiver and available at Trendmöbel24. It’s originally a dining table, but I want to use it as my workspace table (and I think it’s actually perfect for it). I received this marble table from Furniturebox a while back and I’ll be posting soon an update of my living room with it, since it’s amazing! You also can’t find it cheaper anywhere.

The new season is ahead and new fabrics, colors, and silhouettes will dominate fashion. Camel anything and everything is perfect to wear when the leaves start changing color. Layering and knits slowly start making their way into our outfits when the air starts getting cooler.
Above you find my favorite picks for fall, all of which you can find at LuisaViaRoma, aka designer heaven. I’ve also linked to similar budget and high street versions as you can see.
The must-haves for the upcoming season are:
The perfect camel coat in the perfect color and silhouette
The ‘It’ bag of the season by J.W. Anderson (huge crush!)
The Gucci backless loafers we’ve seen on everybody, but which are the hottest shoe trend and are perfect for fall
Cold shoulder or off the shoulder knitwear, because who says you have to give up on the trend during the colder season? Swap lighter fabrics for knitwear and presto.
and last, but not least: Deconstructed jeans you can wear with anything and everything during any season. Besides, how awesome do these look with high schaft ankle boots?
On a different note, I just ordered the Vetements jeans, even though I must confess I am most definitely not a fan neither of the label, of Demna Gvasalia, and even less of his work at Balenciaga. However, I am a huge fan of these jeans! I’ve been ordering for the past two seasons different high street versions and even though I found many similar, none fit quite like these! This is why I ended up returning them all. So it’s preferrable to invest in one single pair of jean style you are 100% happy with, than a lot of ill-fitting high street versions. I think I like these and decided to get them, because it might be one of the only pieces of the brand and one of the only non-basic jeans styles I can see me wearing for years to come. Yup, they are awesome.
