Winter luxury πŸ’™

The winter is comingΒ πŸ’™ It is the season to be cozy at home, in beautiful cashmere knitwear with a lovely cup of tea. On a snowy day, it is also nice to be outside in the city and see all the x-mas decorations in the boutiques. Christmas time is here before you know it, and you may want to write down your x-mas wish list. In this winter chic edition, you will find my daily luxury for the chilly season to come.

πŸ’™ Tiffany and co: At the newly opened Blue Box Cafe in the beautiful boutique in New York, you can finally have breakfast at Tiffany’s (maybe in a winter weekend in NY). Secondly, Tiffany and co has launched a new luxurious home collection, including a diary in Tiffany blue. Oh and the mini diamant earrings are still on my x-mas wish list, too.

πŸ’™ Choo: I love my Choos in beige and blue, the chique winter knitwear with precious stones, and the white Choo trainers with a written label saying the obvious, “I want Choo”.

πŸ’™Burberry: The fall/winter collection combines knit dresses and sweaters with delicate lace. The beautiful combinations are suitable for any occasion, and can be dressed up or dressed down with Choo heels or trainers.

πŸ’™ Repeat Cashmere: The knitwear is soo soft with lovely little details, like cashmere laces on the sides. The cashmere collection comes in beautiful colors and subtle prints, which you can shop now with 15% discount in the online boutique.

…More winter chic items: an off the shoulder or laced cashmere sweater,Β the mini bag in blue by Furla, a limited edition coffee table book by Taschen on fashion design, Choo shawl with stones in blue, Tiffany’s mini diamant earrings, and Kopari’s caring sheer coconut oil for soft hair and dewy skin. Now what will be on your x-mas list this winter?

Paris s/s collections 2018

Oh la la, the spring-summer collections 2018 presented in the city of love and macarons are trΓ¨s chique, feminine and sensual. The s/s collection 2018 by Saint Laurent presented at the Tour d’Eiffel was beautiful and breathtaking. The sculptured silhouette was small and chique, but also the mini dresses with poofy volume and delicate fabrics created a beautiful collection for the femme sensuelle and innocent. The spring-summer trend of (one or two) long earrings was seen in many s/s collections in Paris.

Elie Saab presented a beautiful collection for the modern Amazone.Β Lanvin went back to its roots with the cool minimalist collection of clean lines and sleek mini dresses in black and blue. Dior‘s s/s collection by Maria Grazia Chiuri, inspired by the art of Niki de Saint Phalle, showed mini and long dresses in tule with an animated or written story to tell. Another s/s collection for 2018 that was chique as ever, was from Giambattista Valli, Valentino and AltuzzaraΒ with lovely dresses of artwork.

Milano s/s collections 2018

La cittΓ  della moda Milano was the place to be last week for the beautiful s/s collections 2018. La moda e il lussoΒ is an essental part of Italy’s cutural heritage. The spring-summer collections presented at Milan Fashion Week celebrated the luxurious fashion made in Italy with a lot of prints. The lovely Pucci collection from Firenze featured chique printed mini dresses presented in a fun poolside runway. Etro celebrated its fiftieth anniversary with a new version of their signature printed dresses in boho white, green and blue.

Salvatore Ferragamo has a beautiful s/s collection with lingerie inspired tops, midi skirts and delicate dresses in satin, organza and tule. The small bags carried around the waist actually looked chique! Another collection that I love is from Blumarine with beautiful see-through dresses, as well as the cool and chique collections by N.21 (Numero ventuno), Byblos and MaxMara. On the last days of MFW, Dolce & Gabbana presented their very Italian collection with black lace and organza dresses for your inner Monica, Pia and Sofia πŸ’™.

NYFW s/s collections 2018

The end of summer is always a little less sad with the beginning of New York Fashion Week, continuing the coming weeks in London, Milan, Madrid and Paris. Last week the most beautiful spring-summer collections for 2018 were presented in New York. NY was the perfect setting for the casual and cool, nineties inspired spring-summer collections 2018 presented to the fashion editors, bloggers, Brooklyn babies and models.

Alexander Wang had an actual streetway runway for his beautiful minimalist collection with mini dresses and a mix of nineties streetwear essentials. Oscar de la Renta‘s inimitable s/s collection for 2018 combined city chique daywear (stripes, t-shirt, denim, written words, and paint dots) with the beautiful signature dresses in delicate tule, organza and silk. Another s/s collection 2018 presented in NY that I loved, was the collection of cool oriental dresses by Tadashi Shoji, and the romantic dresses by Marchesa inspired by bygone days and faraway places.

Il dolce far niente in Italy πŸ’™Β 

Il dolce far niente in Italy πŸ’™ beautiful places in Italy to be lazy_

il-dolce-far-niente-in-italy

I don’t know about you, but sometimes, between summer sadness and winter blues, I need some days to sleep and chill a little. Some lazy daysΒ in a beautiful place in Italy would be a good idea! In Italy, il dolce far niente, the sweetness of doing nothing, is a lifestyle. It is about living on a Mediterranean rhythm and loving the daily luxury in your life. The daily rituals have become a form of art in Italy, from a beautiful pizza margherita, the perfect cappuccino to raspberry icecream, from spending time with family, l’amoreΒ to dressing well. La dolce vita is celebrated in the little streets, boutiques, restaurants and homes of each Italian city. These are beautiful places in Italy to be a little lazy:

πŸ’™ Milano and il lago di Como. Even though Milano is known as a busy city, it is a nice place to visit the beautiful white Duomo, and to shop in the monumental Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II, la RinascenteΒ and in Via Montenapoleone. For a day away from busy Milano, you need to go to Como at only half an hour distance. The view over il lago di Como is beautiful and you can go to romantic places across the lake, like Bellagio. IlΒ dolce far niente: you can sit on the rooftop of il Duomo to read a book and enjoy the view, visit Armani CasaΒ for some home inspiration, taste the delicious mozzarella dishes and pizzas at mozzarella bar ObicΓ , and try all the icecream you can find in Como.

πŸ’™ The lovely, little places on the 1920s beach in Viareggio all have nice entrances with wooden names. This is where the local Italian families go for a day on the beach. The place has a sweet scent that comes from the orange and pine trees. Along the seaside you will find the chique boutiques from for exampleΒ Liu Jo, Patrizia Pepe, Intimissimi, andΒ Atos Lombardini.Β In a two hour walk along the sea, you can go to Forte dei Marmi, another lovely coastal town in Lucca, Toscane. il dolce far niente: don’t miss all the boutiques in Viareggio and Forte dei Marmi, go to a spa, and try all the icecream at gelateria Grom.

πŸ’™ La bella cittΓ  di moda_ Firenze is a beautiful city and home to many boutiques, musea, and restaurants.Β In Via Roma, Via dei Calzaiuoli, ViaΒ de’ Tornabuoni and Piazza della Repubblica, you will find the boutiques fromΒ Liu Jo,Β Tiffany and co, Luisa via Roma, Patrizia Pepe,Β Fratelli Rosetti, la Rinascente, and you can visit the Gucci museo.Β il dolce far niente: drink a cappuccino or cioccolato at CaffΓ¨ Gilli, visit the Liu jo store, visitΒ il giardino diΒ Boboli, try the mezzelune pasta at Fuori Porta, and pizza a taglio at Pugi.
