TRENDWATCH: THE MIDI SKIRTS

On top of my wishlist for fall: the midi skirt. Darlings like Emma Elwin (left picture) or Dree Hemingway (right picture via) and designers like Phoebe Philo for Céline FW 2013 show you how to style it. Combine it with some flat boots (if you’re tall enough) or boots with chunky wooden heels. And if you are afraid to look too frumpish, look at Dree and just punk it up with a see-through shirt. Done. 

And here’s how to shop this trend on a budget: 1.) Pleated Wool Skirt in aubergine from COS // 2.) A-Line Skirt in tangerine also from COS // 3.) Pleated Skirt from Zara // 4.) Faux Leather Skirt from Whistles // 5.) Long Skirt from Base Range via La Garconne // 6.) Dark red Leather Skirt from Zara.

NEW IN: THE PERRET SCHAAD JACKET

I met Tutia and Johanna, the charming duo behind Perret Schaad earlier this year at the Mode Suisse Zurich to catch a glimpse of their FW 2013 collection. And I spent like hours in that place, so many beautiful pieces, colours, fabrics. Daaang. In the end I turned my head off and ordered two items: the jacket in the picture above and a fantastic red shirt (will be featured soon in another post). Like a little girl for her birthday I’ve been waiting for my order for the last few months. And now it’s finally here (and, yes, this time I DID scream when the postman arrived) – isn’t it lovely? And it looks so nice with my new other new innies: sandals from &other stories, Chanel "Frenzy" nailpolish and copper hangers from HAY.

SWIMSHORTS FROM WE THE KNOT

Swimshorts are probably the only thing I wouldn’t steal from my boyfriend’s wardrobe. But those are pretty cool, they come from Portuguese label We The Knot. Filipe and Sérgio came up with the idea to collect broken umbrellas and craft beautiful swim shorts out of the umbrella textile (40 EUR each). Recycling at its best!

BYCO, A CROWDFUNDING DESIGN WEBSITE

imageimageimageimageimageimageimageimage

The main idea behind this blog is to give young designers a platform, that’s why I’m really excited about this project: Byco is a crowdfunding site for fashion and home design, where everybody can submit a design – established designers, students or practitioners from other design disciplines. If the design is good, the sketch will be posted to the “fund page”, where you can invest in the designs you like. Once a sample is produced it will be available at Byco Shop for a limited time. The designers receive 20% of sales plus one of their designs and investors receive 10% of sales and of course support good work. Wow. I mean, where else do you have the possibility to buy unique design for surprisingly reasonable prices?

Marlene Søerensen’s blog spruced is one of my daily reads and, curious as I am, I’ve always been wondering how a person with such a great sense for style would live like. Then Marlene listed her space at airbnb and my jaw dropped while browsing through these pictures. (For those who don’t know airbnb yet: it’s a trusted online marketplace that connects travelers seeking authentic experiences with hosts offering unique, inspiring spaces around the world). So you Berlin travelers if you don’t know where to stay, Marlene’s apartment is the place to be!
