Trend: Radiant Orchid

Orchid, the color which appeared on the catwalk during shows of  DKNY, Max Mara and several others. It’s been presented as one of the vibrant colors we can wear this summer. In my opinion, a sumptuous addition to our wardrobes. If only I had a garment in Orchid, so before I leave for Portugal I have some serious shopping to do.

Besides fashion, Orchid has also found it’s way into the beauty industry this season. Confession: I truly envy those women who can pull off such an intense haircolor. If I could, I wouldn’t hesitate and give myself this Orchid hairtone immediately. Would you mind wearing something in Orchid? Would love to hear your thoughts about it. 



Trend: Fringing Things Up

Fringes, a trend which I’m welcoming back with open arms. You can see them everywhere, on bikerjackets, purses, heels, bracelets… Everything got a little bit fringed up this season. To be honest, I used to dislike fringes when I was younger. I associated them with the country style and I didn’t know that fringes could have an other appearance than that.


Collections: Jean Paul Gaultier ss14

I have always been a fan of Jean Paul Gaultiers designs; he makes women look strong, feminine and a bit mysterious. I think it is great how he can create such variation in his collection but still make it a beautiful entirety. This time an entirety of feathers, tulle, honeycomb patterns, butterflies and leather. “She’s a butterfly in the day, and a showgirl at night..”
