A sunny dream: Club Monaco spring 2012

A romantic daydream is the mood Club Monaco sets off for the spring/summer 2012 season. Under the artistic lens of Belgian photographer Serge LeBlon (whose work I ashamedly admit I just discovered) the versatile and always fascinating Sasha Pivovarova plays a nostalgic muse, making us dive into a sea of introspection. Soft lights and shadows, the use of contre-jour (backlighting) or sepia tones and peaceful landscapes give the impression of a sweet reverie.

Fairy tales and glamorous decadence at 2010's Golden Globes

Awards shows that take place at the year’s debut are the best preview of the upcoming spring season’s top trends. Golden Globes is my favorite award event (next to the Oscars, of course) and this year it was such a visual treat. Amazing, unique looks compensated for those several disappointing winning results (for me, anyway). So here are my favorite looks:

Handmade folk belts

"All our belts are made from fabric from an age old Italian webbing supplier… After we get the webbing back here, it’s sent off to a factory in Northampton to handmake the belts. The leathers we use also come from Italy [and are] veg tanned rather than chrome dyed."

GQ brings back old school elegance

A great looking menswear fashion editorial published in the December issue of GQ Italy Magazine brings back the nonchalant elegance of the 1940s. Shot by talented self-taught English photographer Matthew Brookes, "Garçons Terribles" puts on view timeless images of a restless yet polished masculinity.

Vintage folk charm at Nygardsanna

These wonderful images with a vintage effect, signed by photographer Carl Bengtsson draw together the fall/winter 2010/2011 lookbook for Swedish brand Nygårdsanna. The romantic sepia tones, outdoorsy country side setting and a blue-eyed, freckled, innocent but fierce looking model set these images in the right mood.

His pictures are dramatic and lyrical, making use of bright day light (shadow and light effects, contre-jour) digital manipulation (sepia tones, out-of-focus) and striking natural settings, showing sensuality, dreaminess and a very personal expression.


70s revival and a lot of pink

Golden Globes 2011 brought pleasant surprises both awards and fashion wise. Pink is a favorite color for the upcoming season and that was seen on the red carpet. Reddish hue “honeysuckle” seen on Lanvin gown worn by actress Julianne Moore is already nominated as it-color of the season; also lighter pink shades such as pale salmon, coral and ethereal "silver-peony" are also very fashionable.
