Dr Marteens: In between the crazyness of celebration my country Chile has defeated Spain’s football team-the former leader- at the world cup in brazil. I give you this post of one of my latest obssesions. A pair of black Dr. Martens, dated back in the days of prewar this boots later became an icon of Punk culture. Everyone -on internet-appears to have them, and so I think I need my own pair right now. They look like they fit every outfit wich is really a big must. Love them.
The puffy jacket: ok I know most of you are starting summer but here in Santiago, Chile, we are freezing down the andes mountains with -2Cº early morning. It’s been crazy this past week, new job, new city and a new life, no time for nothing so excuse me for the lack of updates. Freezing here made me think about this look of this two power players in fashion. Emmanuelle Alt always inspiring back in 2012 Paris Fahion week in a Rick Owens oversized parka and Raf Simons before Dior in his own bomber jacket. A look to try very safe-and warm- for me at least in my effort no to freeze.
Bomber Jacket from Raf Simons.
Postcard: More than a week has past and my life has been a storm of changes, first travelling to Colombia was a great experience to meet so many new people, a lovely country It surprised me alot. Then coming back to the city -Santiago- to get a new job and started to live here again after almost four years since I leave. A lot of changes as you can read. Again I will like to apologize for the lack of post I’ll start to catch up soon. By the meantime here are a few pics of my trip to this big and beautiful suthamerican country. #LoveColombia
Run Town: As I called the Tight+short trend seen in most of the mayor street style blogs this style is a translation of sportswear to the street upbeated in a darker underground way by designers like Damir Doma or Rick Owens it has been maximized by brands like Nike in colaboration with Undercover Gyakusou. It looks comfortable and modern even though I liked is not a style for me at this point at least.
Quilted: A trend born inspired in the armor clothing used by knights back in the times of castles. Transalted to furniture lining named “capitoné” has always been made of leather or padding cotton. Chanel was one of the first to translate this to fashion -in the modern time- with the now famous 2.55 flap bag. Now it has turn over mens fashion as I saw a few days in the mens section of a store while I was shopping. All pictures from Balmain SS 2014 lookbook.
Louis Vuitton Cruise 2015: This post may not be a surprise for you since every fashion blogger arround the globe has shown/writed or -for the more lucky ones- attend the 2015 Cruise show in Monaco last week. Here our attention would emphasize into accessories especially the bags, in this second collection by the new head designer Mr. Nicolas Ghesquiere has done something very expected for Vuitton fans like me. He has redesigned and proposed a new version of the classic, coveted and copied “LV” logo. This new versions as we can see in pictures are bold resembling sometimes the 70’s decade sometimes the art deco streamline or the steamer travel era and in the other hand for the bucket style bag he has used the architecture lines resembling the “V” very used in the mans bag collections in the latest ready to wear shows. He has also used the “LV” inside a circle old logo from the first years of the brand back in 1800s. Sublte, elegant sophisticated like the “pre-season” collections created in house before he arrived to the brand as designer. A total win!
Blue Light: That’s the new name of an especial edition of 2000 models of the super-famous J12 watch from Chanel. This new edition will be available only at Colette the exclusive luxury multibrand store in Paris and will display a special corner and window for Chanel L’instant (watches division).
