Céline Blankets

Slide1-kopia 8

Phoebe Philo knows the art of laid-back like no other. And her autumn-winter 2017 collection for Céline proves that with a piece you surely haven’t predicted to become the new style trick. I’m speaking of the ultra-big blankets, that have a thing or two to say. Philo took her cue from a pub menu, emblazoning those fleecy, fringed shawls with ‘Beef Stew’, ‘Sticky Toffee Pudding’ and ‘Bangers and Mash’. Just imagine, how these heartfelt blankets might warm you up on a breezy day in the countryside this autumn (while eating one of Phoebe’s favourite dishes, I guess).

Cozy. A Détacher AW17

_lll2525

Mona Kowalska differs from the rest of New York pack. Her collections at A Détacher always feel so tranquil and distant from the fuss. No celebrities, no far-fetched venues. It’s oure focus on the clothes. For autumn-winter 2017, the New York-based designer thought of cozy knits – from striped skirt with matching cardigan to wispy in texture sweaters, A Détacher’s clients will have a lot to choose from this autumn in the flagship store on Mulberry street. There was urban-cool tartan plaid; a bit of florals on the baggy dresses; lovely ‘townhouse’ print on sweatshirts. Daily essentials, which can be worn in many ways, according to your mood.

Cool Pajama. Rodebjer Pre-Fall’15

Rodebjer_001_1366

The Scandi girl, Carin Rodebjer, makes her New York-based label cooler and cooler every season. For pre-fall 2014, Rodbjer offers botanical culottes, varsity jackets and… yes, gorgeous, sexy pajama outfits. A sheer floral shirt, a crop top / bra and over-sized trousers are the pieces Carin introduces for autumn. Well, surely it won’t work for every-day, but for cozy, home-made evenings with a romantic movie or other pleasures… coming back to the topic- for Rodebjer, I see only huge successes in the future!

Liza Odinokikh

IMG_9148

During the Aurora fashion week, I always love how the Russian designers go back to their roots from economical, religious and cultural heritage. This time, for SS15, I felt the love to the super warm and cozy Liza Odnokikh collection. The models, wearing hand-embroidered decorations on their beautiful cotton dresses and shirts, walked not down the runway but down the… thatch floor. Barefoot. That felt as relaxing as Dries Van Noten’s summer that we saw a month ago in Paris. The tapestry shown as flower appliques; the dried heair covers; the mood of a soviet farm. Surely, the collection of this Saint Petersburg based designer is a highlight!
