i have always seemed to be robotically attracted to all things leather, studs & denim & upon seeing this editorial from the ss 2011 stockholm magazine was no different. i love the teenage rebellion inspiration that stylist robert rydberg incorporated & models Ilda, Isabelle S, Sophie, Anna L and Nomi make for the perfect team to portray the young, rough n tough gang!!!
Italian stylist Anna Dello Russo pushes fashion to the extreme in this bad ass, multiple trend, daring leopard-print minidress with gold fringing. Something only the likes of Anna can get away with, but the milkmaid braid on the other hand is certainly a style we can all embrace..... love it! I will definitely be trying this throughout the Christmas party season.
One To Watch: The "La belle et la bête" clutch bag
If you haven't heard of or seen an 'Olympia Le Tan' bag as of yet, I have a feeling that after seeing Clémence Poesy donning one at the latest Harry Potter premier might have put it well & truly under the fashion worlds radar. Carrying what looks at first glimpse like a “La Belle et la Bête” (Beauty and the Beast) book is actually a clutch byOlympia Le Tan.So I thought it would be nice to give you a brief history lesson behind this very clever women & her brilliant designs.
Olympia Le Tan launched her collection of minaudières (small ornamental case for a woman's cosmetics, jewelry, or personal items that is often carried as a handbag) and bags which wear the covers of first
edition novels, stolen from the library of her esthete and artistic father, Pierre Le-Tan. These minaudières
are lined in a liberty pattern and crafted with delicacy, as the tag says, "Made in Paris with Love.” This
season she's supposedly inspired by Paris, the 1940's, surrealism, old book covers of books that were turned into great movies. The mini clutches are like surrealist little evening boxes on which she play with the words.
