Zaha Hadid for Caspita

Zaha Hadid for Caspita diamond pave Skein rings.

Zaha Hadid threw a party at her East London gallery on Thursday night to celebrate her collaboration with Swiss jewelry brand Caspita.

Hadid and Caspita designer Arlène Bonnant have collaborated on “Skein,” a limited edition ring and bracelet which come in variations of white, yellow, black and rose gold, some inlaid with pavé diamonds. Cellular structures found in nature inspired the mesh-like designs.
The Pritzker prize winner is no stranger to the fashion world, since She’s designed runways for Chanelshoes for Lacoste, and was even named Woman of the Year by Glamour Magazine in 2012. 
One of her latest foray into fashion—designing shoes in collaboration with Rem D. Koolhaas’s brand United Nude— brings her architectural style to the feet of ladies willing to shell out $2000 USD for a pair of daring, cantilevered heels.

the midweek post

Hello!!! Hope you have had a nice week so far. Mine is been quite boring so far, nothing special. Anyway I made these photos two days ago when I hound this vintage cardigan I hadn’t wear in a long time and mix it up with some beige pants. I like the colors of the cardigan from brown to different shades of green. And also I think it looks great with my new snake bag! The only problem is I haven't come up with a name for this post so just leave it the midweek post.
Have a nice day!

The fashion dolls for UNICEF

Forty-two fashion designers are participating in UNICEF’s designer dolls initiative known as Les Frimousses (or little faces, in English), now in its 11th edition. It's not the first time for fashion houses like Chanel, Dior and Lanvin to partecipate reports WWD. 

The dolls are to be on show at the Petit Palais from Nov. 26 to Dec. 1 and then go under the hammer during an auction on Dec. 2 at the Four Seasons Hotel Georges V.

Last year, the reserve price for each little toy was 500 euros, or $647 at current exchange. UNICEF is to distribute funds raised from the sale to help vaccinate children in Sudan’s Darfur region.

Here are some of the fashionable dolls.  Which is your favorite?

All wrapped up

How are you doing? This week has been a little boring, because of the bad weather and I haven't been very active.  For a rainy day like this I decided to mix a floral skirt with a military jacket. It's a nice combination and I can't take credit for inventing it because I have seen it often on magazines or internet. It works very well for a daily outfit since it is fun and cute. I really like the colors of this Zara skirt I have bought like 7 or 8 years ago but still is part of my wardrobe. The jacket is also not this season but worn together they look works (I hope :P)

Have a nice day!!!

Isa Arfen

Another favorite collection was that of the London label Isa Arfen Designer Serafina Sama's clothes were relatable and sophisticated, with a winning touch of the eccentric; Sama has a nuanced sense of color and material, and an intriguing way of layering strong silhouettes. Her latest collection reiterated several key shapes, such as long culottes, slouchy trenchcoats, and twisted crop tops, and elaborated other established themes in new, winter-friendly ways. A double-breasted alpaca coat, for example, echoed the slouchy cut of the trench; her signature trim pants were done in wool and a vinyl-like technical silk. There were some new ideas, too: This collection emphasized a long, lean silhouette, with pencil skirts and narrow shifts, and Sama was up to something interesting with her "denim" looks made of wool. She also made a couple of fantastic coats from colorful Steiff teddy-bear fur. At first, it was hard to see the news in this collection, because all of the development was so organic.

Sweater is one of the nicest fall garments and is so fashionable right now!!! They look great with a skirt or pants, worn alone or with a shirt underneath. Love the colors of this H&M one pink and beige.  Have a nice week!

Delpozo AW 2013-2014

After the big cities of fashion presented their proposals for the spring of 2014, I thought to share some of my favorite collection from the Autumn Winter 2013 shows. Delpozo was definitely on of my favorites. Actually I had never hear of this spanish brand, before it presented its first New York collection during the fashion week this September and since then catching the attention of everyone in the fashion business.So looking around in the internet I found the AW 2013-2014 collection and what an exquisite collection it was. The collection, designed by Josep Font, is an unique prêt-à-couture with modern and gracious shapes in the same time, gorgeous colors and exclusive textiles. It was obvious the designer tried to bring a very feminine collection with floral elements.

It feels like autumn

After the glorious sunny and warm days, autumn has come at in its. Well I wore tight for the first time this season. I like very much the blue shade of this denim jacket (I think it really looks great with everything you wear it).  The colors of the skirt are very autumish, but the scarf is in my opinion what really makes you feel like fall. Isn't how we imagine our outfit during this season? Wrapped in a warm scarf. I have bought these scarf years ago, but since then it has been my favorite!

Have a nice day!
