Guaranteed to make head turns, this By Malene Birger faux fur coat has never failed me at keeping me warm, cozy, and stylish when it’s cold outside.
Even though nowadays everyone seems obsessed with Simon’s creations, my avid Jacquemus fandom began since 2014, when I first bought and wore my very first piece from the label (an asymmetric skirt scored for €120 at Lagarconne), which was back then an underground, under-the-radar designer brand. As a proud owner of 10 pieces by Jacquemus (admittedly most bought on sale), my collection won’t stop growing. And to me, it has never been about the hype or about buying pieces from a designer label just because it’s trendy or makes you look cool. My unconditional love for Jacquemus began and continues simply because Simon’s playful architectural designs, which combine avant-garde with wearability and understated sexy resonated with my style and taste since day 1. I never adapted my taste and aesthetic to it, it actually represented my taste and aesthetic and still does. Like I’ve mentioned countless times before on the blog, to me it feels as if Picasso had designed clothing, Jacquemus creations would have been it. And that’s saying something, because Picasso has been a lifetime obsession to me.
While I love both the Spring Summer 2018 and Fall Winter 2018 collections, both of his 2017 collections still remain my favorites. However, I am really digging his shift from blue-ish (his favorite color) and black-and-white tones to warmer and earthy tones in his past two collections.
The pieces above are high on my Jacquemus wishlist, particularly those asymmetric earrings and Le Sac Chiquito (love at first sight!).
How about you? Are you also a Jacquemus fan? What is on your wishlist at the moment?

If you are thinking about how to wear sock boots this season, look no further than to pair them with a full length coat and deconstructed jeans for edgy vibes, yet elegant vibes.
Stumbled upon this fashion editorial a while back and I just needed to share it with you guys as it’s probably one of the most beautiful editorials I’ve seen as of late. It has me dreaming of summer already and looking forward to wear linen, flowy fabrics, straw, and cotton. Let’s not even mention how incredible the shooting location is, which has me already craving a summer getaway! While the styling is pretty straightforward, it does go perfectly well with the beautiful architecture and it does encapsule the concept of slow fashion. Obsessed. x
When your style has multiple facets: casual and relaxed, edgy, and luxe, yet it is always faithful to a neutral palette, clear lines, and playful silhouettes, it is necessary to classify them and pinpoint their main characteristics. In my previous post I showed you some of my favorite casual looks last year. However, here are some of my absolute favorites, which are edgier and more elegant looks.
From labels like Jacquemus, Beaufille, Jil Sander, and Tibi, my wardrobe is full of structured, elegant, and statement minimalistic pieces alongside high quality basic staples. While in my closet you will find cozy cashmere knits, full length and fluffy coats, sneakers, and all things hygge, you will also find asymmetric, ruffled, and statement garments. Open back tops, ruffled hemlines, cold and off-the-shoulder cuts, sculptural shoes, and dramatic silhouettes are a huge reason why I love fashion and why I started blogging in the first place.
