The blue lagoon ๐Ÿ’™

Do you ever dream about a beautiful island somewhere in the blue lagoon? I dream about it even when I’m not sleeping ๐Ÿ’™. On my dream vacation this winter, I travelled to the two islands Maui and Honolulu, Oahu in Hawaii. It was soo beautiful! I’m daydreaming again to go with the waves. I can see myself in my turquoise bikini or my Liu jo dress between the palm trees on a deserted white beach, overlooking the sparkling blue ocean. If in May or June I am stranded on an island in the blue lagoon, this is my summer luxury that I would take with me:

๐Ÿ’™ La Perla mare: the swim collection is beautiful in white and blue, very suitable for il dolce far niente on a pure white beach.

๐Ÿ’™ Choo’sย spring/summer collection is perfect for a summer expedition in the city or for exploring an island with classy Choo trainers in beige suede, together with a one in a million golden lockett bag or small rebel bag in sand.

๐Ÿ’™ Kopari beauty: I love all things coco from Kopari beauty, based on organic coconut oil. The new face oil, introduced in May, has all the caring sweetness from coco and avocado. For sunkissed skin, mix the coconut face oil with Diorskin nude foundation and finish with the new Diorskin mineral nude bronzer in 002 soft sunlight (Dior).

๐Ÿ’™ The spring and summer collections 2018 from Milano, Paris and New York are so beautiful and now available in the (online) boutiques. My daily luxury for the summer is inspired by the delicate dresses from Salvatore Ferragamo, Oscar de la Renta and Saint Laurent.

A lovely summer to you, wherever you’ll be ๐Ÿ’™ For moda, daily luxury and beautiful places, you can follow me on www.nickybianca.com andย https://nl.pinterest.com/nicky_bianca/

Milano s/s collections 2018

La cittร  della moda Milano was the place to be last week for the beautiful s/s collections 2018. La moda e il lussoย 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 ๐Ÿ’™.

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.

Nuit en blanc

Dressed in white for a midsummer night, a dรฎner en blanc, or a lovely summer sunset, feels beautiful and chique ๐Ÿ’™. Spanish or chantilly lace looks beautiful on bare skin, paired with nude Valentino heelsย or white Choo’s. Lovely lace dresses are essential summer pieces, for example in the spring-summer collections by Valentino, Burberry and Chloรฉ. Secondly, an embellished white dress is an essential daily luxury on summer days, for example by Altuzzara. Another white dress that is very en vogue is the silk slipdress, inspired by lingerie and nineties coolness (Balenciaga, Courrges, The Row). Lastly, with a minimalist mini dress with long sleeves, you can wear a beautiful clutch and embellished heels by Choo or Acquazzura,ย showing long tan legs. And for your man? He needs a classic white tuxedo jacket, black trousers and classy Choo’s for Cuban vibes.

Liu Jo s/s collection 2016

Liu Jo’s spring-summer collection 2016 is beautiful and cool ๐Ÿ’™.

The safari chic essentials in white, khaki and beige combine beautifully with the Liu Jo denim collection. For example, the white macramรฉ and cotton shirts with lace on a white, khaki or beige embellished Liu jo jeans or denim skirt is lovely for a khaki spring. Don’t forget to bring your Liu jo backpack in soft beige leather to complete your city safari.

Since 2008, the beautiful Liu Jo jeans have been an essential daily luxury for my summer and winter collection. Liu Jo’s denim collection becomes even more beautiful each year and seems custom made for me due to the small and comfortable fit. The sexy, low waist divine denim jeans with a light shimmer, the lovely white denim skirt and dark blue denim jacket with embellisments; that’s my Liu Jo denim for the spring and summer season. To fall in love with Liu Jo’s denim collection and to find your perfect fit, you can visit Liu Jo’s online boutique and denim guide.

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, Chloรฉ, 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 macramรฉ.

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.
