a week in fashion #79

By Marlene | Published: 14. October 2012

*Last week, I wrote about the jewellery I wear every day. Putting it on is as much of a habit as putting on mascara every morning. I don’t really think about it – but I’ll notice when I’ve forgotten. And then there’s the jewellery that you wear like a kick-ass red lipstick. Sabrina Dehoff makes jewellery like that. I especially like her cocktail rings. One of those on your hand can change a whole outfit. This one is from the wonderfully named collection “Hollywoodish Holidays”.

*Completely different jewellery, but just as good: heavy metal chains with a flash of neon from Noise Girl.

*I saw a few leftovers of the Anna dello Russo for H&M collection in the store this week. Not too exciting. But then I also saw the first campaign pictures of the Maison Martin Margiela for H&M collection. Very exciting! What do you think?

*”She couldn’t even throw a staged red couch to give it some life?” A red couch – this is what people expect from a house tour who can afford to pay a few million for a house. Even if it’s Stella McCartney’s house. I’ll file this under “problems I’d like to have”.

*After working on Twenty8Twelve with her sister Sienna, Savannah Miller is going solo with her own label. It’s called, simply, Savannah Miller and it launches this month. You can see the lookbook for the first collection here. Looks good, I think. The “Jerry” jumper and the “Zora” blazer especially.

*”Even I had to admit, this job does not suck” – the Style.com team has put together a scrapbook of their month of fashion weeks. Fun!

*While you’re over at Style.com, have a look at Rodebjer’s video of the Spring/Summer 2013 collection. Ah, those Swedes.

*I want every day of my life to look like a photo from the Project Merit Badge tumblr. (link via dooce)

*“The Little Black Jacket”, the book about the Chanel classic, is still on my wishlist. An exhibition of pictures from the book has been traveling the world and is making a stop in Berlin between November 23 and December 14.

*Speaking of Chanel: Remember when Brad Pitt landed the gig as the new face of Chanel No. 5? And did you imagine, like me, what the campaign would look like? In my imagination, it certainly never looked like this: Brad Pitt having an imaginary conversation with a perfume bottle. Oh dear.

Have a great week!

    My hand, but no longer my ring – someone has stolen it. I’m so sad about it. 🙁

      Oh noooo! So sorry to hear that. If you can, you should get it again. It was such a beautiful ring.
