Lady in Red, Céline Spring 1995

celine-spring-1995-campaign-red-dress-style-fashion-vintage-photographyIt’s Saturday which means that I can delve into beautiful photography and enjoy the charming visuals of past ad campaigns. Today, I stumbled upon this breath-taking photograph of Karen Mulder taken for the Spring 1995 Céline campaign. I haven’t found out who the photographer was, but he/she surely did an incredible job. I love the striking cinematic vibe. It is amazing how picturesque a red dress can be if captured in the right moment; and of course, artistic and ravashing at the same time…

Have a beautiful and sunny weekend!

Leather Cravings: Yvonne Konè

yvonne-kone-gladiator-heels-sandals-fashion-style-shoes-leather-bag-clutch-leather-goods-2013I discovered this beautiful Danish brand Yvonne Konè founded by a very talented young lady, Yvonne, who is a graduate of the Royal Danish Academy of School Arts. The label, which is named (as you have already guessed) after her, specializes in leather goods and accessories. The bags are my favorites as they exude in minimalism and contemporary functionality. Also, I love the sandals which carry this gladiator-themed design but do not come off as heavy. It’s a charming understated style that goes perfectly with the leather, the central piece of all this work. Here are some of my favorite items:

Calvin Klein: The Perfect Cut

Calvin Klein, spring-summer 2011 rtw

I have always thought that the best plunging neckline can only be achieved thorough minimalism. It’s a matter of aesthetic: the right combination of boldness and elegance woven together with the perfection of the cut. Calvin Klein is probably my favorite brand when it comes to it and the art of highlighting the best of a deep neckline. Francisco Costa knows exactly how to balance simplicity with the right amount of sensuality to create an utterly feminine piece for women.

I am irremediably in love with beige and all of its shades. There is something so charming, so enjoyable and so chic about it,  I cannot resist it! I just love the warmth and understated elegance that are so effortlessly reflected by this color.

It makes me dream of  a refreshing coffee latte served in the early morning, the soft sand underneath my feet on a hot summer day, the alluring Moroccan desert, the sunset in Tuscany or a delicious slice of Tiramisu cake. It is always on my list of favorite colors for summer!
