Twisted basics

I can’t seem to get over this Apiece Apart collection. The New York duo nailed it one more time with a collection full of perfectly edgy basics. Every little detail counts: from the fall evoking colours, to the silhouettes, the fabrics or those shoes! Perfect inspiration for a damp Monday morning.

One man’s trash is another man’s treasure

After years of devoted love to endless high heels, the fashion industry has found a new affection for sneakers. The designer’s final wave is serving as a source of inspiration as much as the show itself, with the likes of Joseph Altuzarra and the always über-stylish Phoebe Philo in the spotlight.

One man’s trash is another man’s treasure, or so the old saying goes. The clever minds behind Golden Goose were one of the first to spot the trend and soon started selling an updated worn-out version of the Stan Smiths. The price tag isn’t that enticing, but they surely save you years of rain and mud. For those of you who prefer the old pristine classic, you’d be happy to know Adidas is relaunching the white leather upper tennis shoe. It’s up to you, but whatever you decide, remember it is about time to give your feet the rest they deserve.

My long dreamt road trip to California finally became a reality a couple of weeks ago. I left for LA full of hopes and I wasn’t deceived any minute of the time I spent there. We visited Yosemite, Napa Valley, San Francisco, Big Sur, Santa Bárbara, the OC county…and I came back home yearning for more. The pictures can hardly reflect the beauty of what I saw and experienced, but they surely help the mind remember.

Margaret Durow, part I

It seems everybody is taking pictures these days. First came digital cameras and then Instagram. It can get a bit annoying at times, but we all are entitled to store our memories any way we want. However, the habit doesn’t make the monk. Having a camera does not magically turn you into a photographer. At the end of the day, those who are capable to move with their pictures are rare.

Margaret Durow is one of them. Through her photographs you can experience isolation, joy, fear…And all that happens at some point of the American Midwest. But it could be anywhere. And that is because everything feels very personal, very touching as if she was pouring her heart and soul into her work, knowing no boundaries, no shyness.

This is some of her black & white work. Part II will be about colour.
