Shoes for US!
I am so happy for creative designers and amazing shoes! Shoes are art. Walking art that makes the owner happier, confident and hopefully not in pain. I love heels because they make me longer and my legs look great.
Heels make me strut and walk with more confidence and I would love to buy a new shoe wardrobe for this summer! I mean... just LOOK at these beauties! How can you NOT fall in love and now I feel sad about online shopping. My patience wouldn't last for long if I couldn't try them on and touch the fabric. Daydreaming is cheaper haha :p
DOLCE & GABBANA
Give me spring and bare ground to walk on!
Sweet shoe shopping dreams...
Hi, finally February! In Sweden we celebrate 'fettisdag' and we eat semlor. But the day after is Valentine so go easy on the indulgement haha. Or not!! Another month has gone by and we're closer to spring, closer than before at least and everywhere you go, stores invite you to the new fashion. I started to think about swedish design... I read about Stylein in a magazine, Elle I think, and became curious.
"Stylein is a Swedish fashion brand, founded in 2001 by designer Elin Alemdar. The first hand tailored collection was created while Elin was working as a stylist during her studies at Fashion Institute of Technology (F.I.T.) in New York City.
Stylein combines a timeless yet contemporary design expression, creating fashion for all occasions. Scandinavian minimalism, fine fabrics and a perfect fit are all essential elements."
I'm new to this, I don't lie about it. I don't know every brand in my country or the world.. yet. I found stylein and if you like minimalism this is the brand for you!

Her name is legendary and the brand is well known world wide to say at least. I like the chic jackets and skirts for work but I must admit I am quite new to the fashion brand today. Chanel, for me, stands for high class, a classic feminine style with a lady boss statement. 1920's length on clothes and white pearl necklaces.
When I saw this new collection on Vouge.com, I could almost smell wet by rain concrete on big city streets; salty winds from the ocean and feel the fabric of wool from uniforms underneath my fingers... Chanel's theme is clear as day and I like the mix and history behind them. It's flirting with the old and the new and I would love to wear the jackets and coats any day no matter the occasion. Timeless fashion. Powerful and chic.
Here are my favorites:
The jackets & coats
If you doubt yourself, ask yourself, what would Coco wear?

I love Japan and I can't wait to go there one day, especially Kyoto since I am a huge fan of the geisha. I can talk for hours about their dresses, education, culture... but I won't. I also love the street style in Tokyo, so cool, creative, daring and youthful! Especially Harajuku district but also in the music industry.
I found some street style photos so if you're new to the japanese fashion here is your chance to see for yourself (Pinterest).
While looking for Japanese designers I stumbled upon a few names of importance:
(Lous Vuitton Resort 2018)
"Kansai Yamamoto served as both muse and collaborator for Nicolas Ghesquière’s latest outing at Vuitton, creating classic Japanese art and Kabuki-inspired patterns and prints for the Cruise collection. Yamamoto was a pioneer in Japanese fashion design and gained worldwide fame after taking his wares outside of his home country to London and Paris and later, dressing a legendary music star in looks that would become synonymous with his stage presence and offbeat sartorial allure. "
"Yumi Katsura presented her new couture collection “The awakening of nature“, autumn-winter 2017-2018 in Paris. A collection inspired by two Japanese artists Kiitsu Suzuki and Sotatsu Tawaraya, valuing Japanese crafts. The love of tradition and modernism will blend without compromise"
"We often take for granted the gray area between a piece of clothing being on or off, open or closed; but Yamamoto’s ideas are never black or white, even if they present exactly that way on the surface."
"Act Two depicted girls whose looks toggled between vintage and future thanks to deconstructed patchwork dresses and optical separates like frilled bike shorts that looked great under boxy, double-breasted blazers and oversize shirting"
See the fashion show here
"PERMINUTE is a fashion label born in Tokyo in 2016 by YOSHIKI HANZAWA. He stayed in Fukushima prefecture until his boyhood and then moved to Tokyo to learn fashion. After studied for 4 years at BUNKA FASHION COLLEGE and coconogacco He started his own project at 23 years old. PERMINUTE develops collections focusing on the diversity of life through unique cutting and material experiments"
"Expressing energy of sensibility unique to women in a pleasantly comfortable design, and obtaining broad support"
"AKIRA ISOGAWA IS ONE OF AUSTRALIA’S MOST ICONIC DESIGNERS. BORN IN KYOTO JAPAN, AKIRA MOVED TO AUSTRALIA IN 1986 WHERE HE STUDIED FASHION DESIGN AT THE SYDNEY INSTITUTE OF TECHNOLOGY, DRAWING INSPIRATION FROM CONTEMPORARY JAPANESE DESIGN"
"Attended high school at Le Rosey in Switzerland, and university at Rhode Island School of Design in America. 1991 Debut as an independent designer in charge of “miss ashida”. 2012 Autumn: Awarded the Special Prize by FECJ (Fashion Editors’ Club of Japan). 2016 Celebrated her 25th anniversary as a designer.

Some designers are inspired by Japan and a japanese theme, for example...
I could wear all the outfits from this collection...! I love the style, colors, details. How much for a piece? $2,180 - $5,590? approx.
