I came, I saw, I wanted, I wept.IMG_5811 IMG_5814Address: 801 Greenwich St #1, New York, NY 10014

First, let’s just get it out of the way and state the obvious: These shoes aren’t the best choice for this outfit. I really don’t remember what I was thinking. Perhaps I just wanted to wear them no matter what – they are gorgeous, after all. The jacket, on the other hand, is a really old wardrobe staple of mine. I bought it at H&M’s men’s department many years ago; sometimes, I almost forget that I own it, until it suddenly comes back from the depths of my closet to be my daily companion again. I really like its military feel and how it gives a relaxed vibe to anything you wear. Last, but not least, the jumpsuit… Well, what is there to say about it! It’s a jumpsuit! I don’t think that there is a jumpsuit out there I wouldn’t love – and wouldn’t mind owning, for that matter. Oh, and nope, I don’t usually hang out in industrial areas, I just thought the blue metal thingy would make for a nice background for the blue jumpsuit!DSC_2450DSC_2504DSC_2454DSC_2516DSC_2584DSC_2569DSC_2493DSC_2591Shoes: Chloé, jumpsuit: Zara, jacket: vintage H&M, belt: Maison Martin Margiela for H&M, bracelets: Marni for H&M

So, we all know by now what the next H&M collaboration will be. I’m not as excited yet as I was last Fall with Margiela, so we’ll see what French designer Isabel Marant will have to offer. In any case, I’m still very curious, I really just love me a designer-highstreet collaboration (I even like getting up at 5 in the morning to stand in line for hours with other fashion-crazed people). So, while we wait for the cheap edition of the coveted clothes, here is a look at the current Fall 2014 campaign for the fashion brand’s regular line. The Canadian model Daria Werbowy was shot by Karim Sadli and styled by Marie-Amelie Sauvé.

I better not tell you how much stuff I bought last Fall from the Margiela for H&M collection, so of course I’m always excited to see the Belgian designer collective’s designs. The whole collection was made from reworked vintage fabrics, curtains, embroideries and petticoats. It took an insane amount of time to make these masterpieces from all the old clothes.

I like the idea of a basic white t-shirt and simple jeans dipped in latex.

This coat was made from a tulle and cotton 1950s prom dress found in New York. The flowers at the hem are sewn from vintage fabric flowers found in L.A., London, Paris, and Brussels. The whole thing is worn over a 50s sequined dress found in Phoenix.  And it took seventy-six hours to finish the whole outfit.
Gorgeous face-masks; it’s just such a shame that you basically don’t see anything when you put them on – and I totally would!Margiela_4cMargiela_4bMargiela_4aMargiela_4d
