Daily luxuries s/s 2016

The spring and summer collections for 2016 are beautiful and cool. The cool season began in New York with chic daywear inspired by the nineties. For example the slip dress is a summer essential, according to Courrges, Balenciaga, Givenchy and the Row. The spring-summer collections in NY had a minimalistic and romantic design with beautiful lines, from the dresses by DKNY, Tibi, Thakoon, Vera Wang, Altuzzara to Givenchy and Carolina Herrera. The chic day collection by Altuzzara, for example, was made of soft white dresses with beautiful beading and Spanish espadrilles. The collections by Alexander Wang, Vera Wang and Cushnie et Ochs had a more grungy and hiphop nineties style.

The inimitable collections by Dior, ChloΓ©, and Balenciaga in Paris had a soft and delicate style. Summer lace is a lovely luxury for another summer season, as seen by Burberry. Balenciaga’s last collection by Alexander Wang had a soft tenderness with white day dresses in cotton, silk and lace, inspired by lingerie and nineties’ coolness. Balmain had a beautiful and feminine collection of daily luxuries in beige and brown tones with emerald green, in suede and macramΓ©.

The escapism of the summer collections in Milan was made for romantic souls. The romantic collections are set in another time and in another place, from the desert nomad collection by Alberta Ferretti, the vintage world traveller collection by Gucci, the under the sea collection by Pucci, to the nostalgic Italia collection by Dolce & Gabbana.

Winter luxury πŸ’™

This winter is going to be a cool season. The beautiful winter luxuries that are in store now make you forget about summer and long for the snow. My wishlist of winter luxuries is a long one. First of all, I would love to have the lovely, winter beige Choo high top trainers and beautiful, black Valentino boots with decorative studs (Valentino, Choo, Shoebaloo). A beautiful backpack or bucket bag are the coolest bags of the season (Valentino, Liu jo, Patrizia Pepe, Paul Warmer). Secondly, the lovely Liu jo jeans and the Liu jo down jackets from the Les Plumes collection are beautiful basic items for all your winter looks (Liu jo). The warm and comfy cashmere dresses and sweaters in winter white and lovely beige are essential winter luxuries (Repeat Cashmere, Liu jo, MaxMaraTwin-Set, Patrizia Pepe). For beautiful, dewy skin you need the delicious soft Dior sorbet cream and Dior serum sorbet against the winter cold. A lovely winter makeup in beige and brown tones, inspired by the nineties look, can be created by a little Dior nude air foundation, Dior bronzer and the Dior sunkissed nailpolish (Dior).

Love her style πŸŒΊ

Some women own a naturally beautiful style 🌺 You may find them within your family and friends, in magazines, in old movies, in fashion blogs, and in the streets and boutiques of beautiful cities like Barcelona, New York, Milan and Firenze. These beautiful, classy women are truly an inspiration to me. And also the cool kids, models, Brooklyn babies and fashion bloggers inspire me with their casual coolness. I love the mix of classic elements with my own casual and cool style. The new chic is presented by cool and comfy clothes in beautiful silhouettes, soft fabrics and textures. For example, a beige cashmere dress, a soft white tee with a Liu jo jeans and Valentino or Acquazzura heels, a white knit dress from Twin-Set or a beige silk dress from Patrizia Pepe with a denim jacket. A sporty cool style is upgraded by the softest materials and chic designs. While classy pieces are dressed down with a tee, denim and sneaks.

Summer sadness

So while the summer is coming to an end, a feeling of summer sadness comes to me. As the schools are welcoming back the kids, offices are back in running again, and the memories of summer vacations fade away, the summer season seems to be over again. Before you know it, you are in school again or back in the office, back in the daily rhythm of life. Don’t give up on the cool summer feeling, though, this easy-like-Sunday-morning-sitting-on-the-dock-of-the-bay kind of feeling. The summer days are not over yet, and need to be spent near the sea, on the beach, and in the city parks. When the days are still warm and the evenings are becoming cool and crisp, you can still wear a lovely tee dress with a denim or leather jacket (Liu jo, Armani Jeans, Nolita), a warm cashmere knit dress over bare legs (Patrizia Pepe, Repeat Cashmere, Twin-Set), or beautiful Liu jo jeans with an off shoulder sweater (Liu jo, Maje). Enjoy an ice cream and late summer dinners on the beach. I feel a little comforted by the beautiful fall and winter collections that this feeling of summer sadness will pass, and make way for excitement for the cool season to come πŸ’™.

Twin-Set

The inimitable pieces from the Twin-Set collections are little love notes to romantic souls. The lovely winter collection from Twin-Set is all about love. The cool and casual denim collections are beautifully combined with the soft cashmere sweaters and lovely lace dresses from the Le Coeur winter collection.

Those were the days

I remember my daily luxury when I was growing up in the nineties. I remember when I bought my first cd, Crazy sexy cool by TLC. I loved Aaliyah, TLC, The Fresh Prince of Bel Air, Friends, Blossom, Sleepless in Seattle and Clueless. I loved the comfort and coolness of the nineties, the long hair, natural makeup, tees and jeans. The natural nonchalance of those days is a source of inspiration for the present. These are your daily luxuries inspired by the nineties for the cool season to come:

  1. Denim and a tee, cool and distressed. A mini denim skirt is perfect πŸ’™. The cool denim and tees from the Liu jo collection are beautiful! (A Liu jo store is opening in the PC Hooftstraat in Amsterdam, the Netherlands in the beginning of September πŸ’™)
  2. Soft sweaters (Armani Jeans, Patrizia pepe)
  3. Casual dresses in soft cotton and cashmere (Repeat Cashmere, Isabel Marant, Maje)
  4. Long hair, don’t care.
  5. Natural makeup in beige tones (Dior)
  6. Denim jacket and down jacket (Liu jo, Patrizia pepe)
  7. Black and white tees and tops with a beautiful lace bra (La Perla, Eres)
  8. High top sneakers (Jimmy Choo trainers are classic)
  9. Sporty and casual styled anything. Dress it all down with a baseball cap, tee, denim and sneakers.
