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.

miamii ayay πŸ’™

Miamii beach is a beautiful place for ocean souls, to escape the winter blues for tropical temperatures, to explore the white sandy beaches, and to swim in the turquoise blue oceanπŸ’™. So go with the waves to beautiful Miamii and explore all the lovely beaches, boutiques, and island adventures that this city on the beach has to offer. The only daily luxury you’ll need in your suitcase is a bikini and havaianas.

πŸ’™ A day on the beach: you can find beautiful beaches in Sunny Isles with oceanside hotels, chique spas and dream apartments like Jade Ocean and Marenas. In South Beach you can photograph all the colourful beach houses along the coast, enjoy a chique lunch at Nikki beach, and take a bike ride through the art deco district and to the islands on the Venetian Causeway. Secondly, you can go to the tropical Miami keys (try a key lime pie) and beautiful Naples on the Gulf of Mexico (visit sea turtles on Marco island or collect seashells on Sanibel island). 

My daily luxury: a turquoise bikini from Victoria’s Secret, Kopari‘s organic coconut oil is essential to hydrate summer beauties’ hair, skin and sandy feet, Dior Bronze will give you sun protection and a delicious scent, a bkr water bottle and Fiji water will keep you cool and hydrated from within. 

πŸ’™ Shopping: you can find beautiful shops in Aventura mall, South Miami Beach, and the Japanese inspired outdoor mall the Falls. Also Naples is a chique place to shop. I love the spring-summer collections in white, sand and blue, for example Dream Angels lovely lace lingerie from Victoria’s Secret, knit dresses by Michael Kors, cotton off shoulder tops by Sea NY, and customized havaianas

πŸ’™ Daily luxury_food: another thing you need to try in Miamii is the South-American cuisine.  Try these nice restaurants, too: oceanside Nikki Beach, brunch at Sense beach house, sushi at Samurai, Italian at George’s, Cuban at Bongo’s.

πŸ’™ Beautiful places to go on an adventure outside of Miami are the Keys, Naples, and the Bahamas. Secondly, you can visit the Disney resorts, Seaworld and Universal Studios in Orlando.

One in a million

I’m swimming in my thoughts, diving deep into my soul, finding an ocean of love for you πŸ’™. Even though you made me feel sad, I know that I’m a beautiful soul. I’m one in a million, too, and I don’t need to feel sad and heart-broken. I’m going to dream and go with the waves to my own beautiful island. My dreams and intuition know where to go. I’m going to sleep, write, eat a lot of dolci and love my daily luxury. I love and I’m loved, too πŸ’™ and this is all I’ll ever need.

Daily luxury_FebruaryΒ 

In February the winter season is (hopefully) coming to an end, and the boutiques will be filled with the new spring and summer collections. My daily luxury and inspiration for February:

πŸ’™ The Vogue EspaΓ±a, Italia and Paris have always been a source of inspiration for me. At the moment, you can find the new collections on the runway for fall/winter 2017-2018. If you feel like I do and long for the summer and spring, you can find beautiful inspiration from the s/s 2017 collections in Vogue, for example the white macramΓ© dresses from Oscar de la Renta.

πŸ’™I love these beautiful blogs for my daily inspiration of fashion and daily luxury: A Bikini a Day, the Fashion Guitar, Theyallhateus, Damsel in Dior, the Blonde Salad, the Fashion Fruit, Olivia Palermo, the Zoe Report, Oraclefox. Am I missing one that you love?

πŸ’™ I love the Choo collection for spring and summer 2017! Creative director Sandra Choi has created a beautiful collection of Choos and bags with an inimitable sense of style, for example the cute Rebel soft mini bag and suede Choo trainers with big rhinestones in sand.

πŸ’™ The Liu Jo collection for spring and summer 2017 features daily chique items in dark blue, white and beige, for example Liu Jo’s Divine bottom up jeans and white lace top.

πŸ’™ Lovely lace lingerie by Intimissimi, La Perla and Victoria’s Secret.

πŸ’™ Dior sorbet cream, hydralife serum sorbet and Dior Nude in sand will hydrate and replenish your face, and gives a beautiful glow and dewy skin.

πŸ’™ Create a beautiful summer home in white, blue and beige, even in the winter, with the  handmade collection in wood, teak and rattan from home and living boutique from the Netherlands Riviera Maison, inspired by beachy places like Sanible island.

πŸ’™ February mood: if it doesn’t feel like 90’s RnB, I don’t want it.
