Great Outdoors, The Gentlewoman Magazine


I hardly get enthralled by photoshoots nowadays, but when I stumble upon something that is as enchanting as this one I immediately have to share it with you. “Great Outdoors” is photographer Liz Collins and fashion editor Jonathan Kaye’s work for the forth edition of the biannual style magazine, The Gentlewoman. The issue was released back in 2011 for the following Fall & Winter season.

As an avid lover of vintage and romance, these pictures have pretty much brightened my day. Romantic, gallant, grant and precise…these are the words that define the style approach and the theme of this photoshoot. And how do you enjoy the outdoors? In the most romantic brands, Jil Sander, Céline, Lanvin or the classics, Burberry Prorsum and Tom Ford. I hope you like this photoshoot as much as I do! Enjoy!

Morning Inspiration: White

ELLE-Czech-Republic-February-2013-kamila-model-white-suit-fashionIt is part of my perfect morning routine to wake up and find something creative or inspiriting on one of my favorite blogs. Usually tumblr is my source of beautiful things that always cheer me up in the morning and make me start fresh even though it’s only Wednesday. Add a cup of my favorite tea to that and it’s perfect!

I have always found the white layering in clothes a perfect expression of minimalist sophistication. Whether it is a suit or other ensemble, it reflects that airy refined beauty of style which is so desired for spring and summer.

Gatsby, what Gatsby?…

…Carey Mulligan’s character, Daisy Buchanan, asks softly in the newest trailer for the awaited “Great Gatsby” movie, starring household names such as Leonardo Dicaprio, Tobey Maguire or Joel Edgerton. Yet, I won’t talk about the movie, but the enchanting style inspired by the jazz era and culture. We have already seen it used by Gucci in their spring 2012 art deco inspired collection, and now Rodarte delights us with wonderful hairstyles for the Fall 2012 collection. Lovely barrettes lighten the heavy fall looks. If you want to recreate this feminine hairstyle you should check out this post on on how to do it yourself:

Also, enjoy these pictures by photographer David Vasiljevic, for the May issue of Elle France. With the movie coming out this year, I expect to see more and more editorials of this kind.

Part of the interview:

On her view when it comes to eating:”It’s not about depriving yourself; it’s about having a balance and eating healthily the majority of the time.”
On being friends with Orlando Bloom before starting a relationship:”We were friends for at least six months first after we met, so it was a very nice way to start. Romance followed friendship.”
On what she loved about Orlando that led her to marry him:”There were plenty of things. He just has a really big heart and he’s a very nice person. And I think that’s important.”
