MY SUMMER'S STANCE

 

 

A time to be your laid back, selfish self. The breeze, the summer rentals by the sea, orange tinted skies with a glass of cheap wine. Summer is all about being the you you've been wanting to be throughout all the other seasons. I am here to give you my summer stance. Whether it includes a heavily printed pyjama set or my favorite bookstore. Not to mention my bow down worthy choice of zines. Read and see if you can relate to the creativity the summer brings forth out of my being.

 

A LITTLE TUNE FOR WHILE YOU SCROLL...

 Wang Tao said she was inspired by a contemporary Chinese drama depicting Qing Dynasty characters crossing over from ancient times to the present-day world. Tao showed us a new side to her design aesthetic, mixing masculine classics (with an oversized twist) and lingerie-inspired pieces. Contradicting an assured femininity with a sharp lined boldness. Restrained and subtle. Taoray gives us a new outlook on day to night womenswear. Timeless with nerve.

CHANGE OF SPACE

CHANGE OF SPACE

At the start of every year I always like to make space for some light changes around my environment; either something to stick up on the wall or the everyday handy object. The following are my start of the year wanted items, things I can create some sentimental value with for the upcoming years. There is something about evolving the inns and outs of my interiors or accessories that gives me an airy happy mood to start the year. The smallest of things around our environment can inspire our innovative, motivated, and peaceful selves...

Blurring the line between chic and the streets this trend combines a sense of femininity and professionalism and exudes unadulterated confidence. Keeping the color and textures of these garments simple, cutting out the chaos of pattern. Being quiet has never been so loud. This trend doesn't discriminate against age, shape or size. It is flattering, modish, and sophisticated. This styles roots lay deep in the minimalist movement, which began post WWII. This trend isn't the newest, but it isn't going anywhere. There has always been a simple elegance In dressing up by dressing down, so you may as well invest in a pair of neutral slacks and a sharp coat.

happy Instagram find.

Young Frankk was presented to me amongst Instagram's recommendation's page, and now I want nothing more than to de-virginalize my earlobes. The urge to put holes in my ears has been blossoming in this late year, Young Frankk would definitely take its place in being my first.

Here's a some background as stated in their wonderful about section -

An accessory that found its origins in sports wear, now a worldwide trending headpiece.  From Korea to Bali, you can see the visor making a subtle yet grand advent. They vary from leather with exaggerated seams to visors inspired by space travel - what I adore most about this trend is everyone making this style their own, draping it with mesh or adding animated patches. Adding a line straight across your hairline to add symmetry, which according to science is beauty. Bugs also seem to be impacting the ornaments of this hat as well. Some add tiny horns, giving them an element of geometry. An element that bugs seem to pertain to in general. Honestly the best places to find these sorts of visors would be at your local boutique shop, Nike (Adidas, Billionaire Boy's Club, etc), high end concept stores (ex - Atelier in New York), or just head over to an Urban Outfitters - they usually have anything you could think of. Wether you're going out for coffee with some co workers or headed over to the green market a visor will always add some balance and pop to your outfit. Do as you please with this headgear, because the whole purpose of this trend is to match it to your daily (minimalist, sporty, spunky) character.

happy Instagram find.

So as always, I was scavenging through Instagram trying to find some publicly hidden gems -and so I found --- Undone.

Honestly I find it basic if I try to describe the label so i'll just let the Undone team do it for us -

 

ABOUT
 
“Undone began with the idea that simple, high quality underwear and basics should be available all in one place. We love soft fabrics, perfect cuts, and the kind of clothes you wear every day and can’t live without. The labels we work with take a thoughtful and progressive approach to design and construction: production is smaller-scale and sustainable, and each piece is made to be worn season after season. We’re inspired by independent thinking and an aesthetic that responds to the way we live.” - Undone peeps

For the season of summer my automatic bag choice would have to be what I like to call the (geometric bag.) From symmetrical lines to completely disruptive lines, the wrist clutch, or even just the generally odd shaped bags. I had recently gotten this pear shaped bag via Opening Ceremony, its pear shaped but the space where you put all your gear is in a circular shape. Another store where you can find le trend is via Maryam Nassir Zadeh (not to mention her shoe collection a J.W Anderson trousers kill my soul overtime I go in.) Another thing is wood, i've noticed a lot of independent small brands from Arizona or Brisbane are using wood and suede to create these sort of 1970's backpack mixed with a cross body bag, it's hard to find but i'm on my hunt. Keep a lookout via your local thrift shop or if you can spend good money go online shopping at stores like ssence or Colette. - T.F.

CHANEL FALL RTW 2016

CHANEL FALL RTW 2016

Photographer: Tatiana Farkas

Location: Paris, France



Chanel's RTW Fall 2016 Collection couldn't have been more laid back. No, there was no luxurious Zen garden. Yet I felt is was way more luxurious and intimate that any of his other sets. Everyone sat front row. Now that is something I look forward to during these usual fashion weeks, doing something innovative and personal with you're audience. I couldn't get enough of  the doused shades of pink over his classic tweed mixed with 80'ish denim, plus the Chanel emoji charms that were worn in the necklaces. I have to say my favorite part was how he infused an equestrian feel, with the riding boots to the khaki mackintoshes. During most of his shows I often don't feel the legendary Coco Chanel in his designs, but this collection opened some old doors for me (in a fabulous way.)
