Style Scrapbook: Psychedelic Daze

Uncategorized

It’s summer, and I’m eager to take a weird trip with out of the box prints, holographic metallics, decadent jewels, and accessories that are a bit surreal… Psychedelic inspiration is easy to find in trippy colors, off-beat works of art, and especially in vintage imagery — the summer of love can provide endless ideas, perfect for summer festivals, or every day demonstrations of peace and love. See below for some great inspiration and clothing and accessories that you can shop now to get the perfect psychedelic look.

Shoe of the season; Flatforms for Spring / Summer 2013

Uncategorized

Screen Shot 2013-03-16 at 11.16.26 AM

Loving this trend for it’s ease [chunky platforms are just so much simpler to walk in than heels] and cool factor, most definitely a style I am going to snatch up for spring.
Spotted a few cool pairs in shops and online, loving these options from Prada’s chunky gold wedge to Fendi’s jelly-sandal redux.
They’re a bit of a practical alternative to Prada’s out of control geisha platforms from the brand’s Spring / Summer 2013 show [see below]

MARNI WINTER EDITION 2013

collections

”Clothing suited for the needs and speed of the concrete jungle. A military attitude filtered through a feminine sensibility. Girls that dress like boys. Marni Winter Edition 2013 is urban and tough.”

This season’s essentials took influence from menswear — the double breasted blazer and coat; slouchy trousers; the parka; the duffle-coat. Sportswear by way of functionality is highlighted with utilitarian detail: a scarf-hood; deep pockets. The zip-up anorak, an urban warrior’s uniform for pre-fall.
