Clothes to get now (or start saving for them as soon as possible)

With almost all new season´s must haves at the shops we made for you a selection of pieces that (for now) should be on your wishlist. Said “for now” because you know how it works…Next week we will love new things for sure. Avoiding unaffordable picks (always in my heart) let´s dream with low cost fashion and some very trendy pieces worthy to spend on.

Con casi todos los imprescindibles de la temporada ya en las tiendas, hemos hecho nuestra propia lista con las prendas que (por ahora) deberían estar entre tus más profundos deseos. Y decimos “por ahora” por una simpre y realista razón: sabemos que la semana que viene nos gustarán cosas nuevas. Evitando los inalcanzables (que llevamos en el corazón por no poder llevarlos puestos) vamos a soñar al menos con la mejor moda low cost y algunas piezas muy trendy que harán que merezca la pena gastar un poco más en ellas.

30 accessories to love

Nothing like a cool accessory for a great look. I´m sure your mum told you many times that a good pair of shoes is always an investment. You´d rather have a good one and not fifteen no quality. I know…girls -and some fashionist guys- want everything. Different colors, styles, heights, brands… In this way, we spend a lot on key pieces but can´t resist to buy also the low cost beautiful ones. What we must know is that details have the ability to make a wonderful look. Bags, hats…Give two different people the same black dress or a pair of jeans and a white shirt and will see. They can create completely different things. London Fashion Week made stronger my beliefs. It bags and cool beanies, sunglasses, sneakers or heels have the power. The most of them are a dream. Chanel Lego bag, Céline…But basically, all you need is taste and inspiration to find all the must have items for this season and forever. AP

Nada como un buen complemento para hacer de un look insípido algo genial. Entre otras cosas, vuestras madres os habrán enseñado que en zapatos hay que invertir. Más vale un par bueno que quince malos. Pero sí, las chicas -y mucho chico fashionista-, queremos tenerlos de todos los colores, estilos, alturas y marcas. Así sucede que lo de invertir se hace de vez en cuando en piezas clave pero no podemos resistirnos a preciosidades low cost. Lo importante es llevar siempre detalles que alcen un look corriente a la altura de obra maestra. Así la teoría del calzado como pieza crucial del puzzle de tu outfit se extiende por consiguiente al bolso y poco a poco a todo lo demás. En el accesorio está la clave, ¿lo sabes? Dale el mismo vestido negro a dos personas o los mismos vaqueros y una camisa blanca y ya verás…La semana de la moda refuerza nuestra creencia en los bolsos it, los sombreros con poder, gafas de sol y unos bonitos tacones u originales sneakers. Muchos de ellos un sueño para la mayoria, como el Lego bag de Chanel del que estoy perdidamente enamorada (desde hace un año) o el precioso Céline azul Klein. Salvo excepciones como estas, lo único que se necesita es inspiración y mucho ojo para encontrar los must have de la temporada o clásicos para siempre (sin caer en la bancarrota).

Fashion ‘wows!’

This weekend of AW14 shows was a colorful and extravagant party at the British capital. High levels of sophistication and taste, without typical and easy or essenceless outfits and always with fashion as absolute word, Somerset House got all the glamour and elegancy -also the weirdness made distinction-  of her admired trendsetters. As an article that I read recently says, six are the kind of person who have been there leaving us enjoy with their outfits like if it was a catwalk of trends. Of course, has been worthy shooting all of them. It people, fashion editors, stylists, bloggers, students and photographers. Everyone with a different purpose but an only thing in common, looks to say wow! A.P

El fin de semana en el que se presentaban las tendencias del otoño-invierno que viene, la capital de la moda británica celebraba su fiesta de color y extravagancias. Con altas notas de sofisticación y gusto, sin caer en lugares comunes de estilismos insustanciales; y con la moda por bandera, la Somerset House se contagió del glamour y elegancia –también de la rareza convertida en distinción- de sus admirados trendsetters. Como decía un artículo que he leído estos días en un periódico inglés, seis son los tipos de personas que allí se dejaron ver pasar como en un desfile de tendencias sin control, todas ellas dignas de ser fotografiadas. Gente it, editores de moda, estilistas, bloggers, estudiantes y fotógrafos. Cada uno de ellos con diferente cometido pero una única coincidencia, looks de wow!

Anche in italiano: Dopo la festa degli innamorati, a scaldarci il cuore, ci ha pensato la Fashion Week della capitale Britannica, rendendoci partecipi di uno show colorato e stravagante. Ci troviamo davanti ad un alto livello in fatto di gusto e del sofisticato, escludendo quel lato tradizionale e monotono, facendo la parola “fashion” un termine assoluto, Somerset House ottiene tutto questo, mescolando anche un po’ della stranezza provocata dai suoi ammiratori trendsetters. Come dice un articolo inglese, sei sono i tipi di persone che sono state lì, lasciandoci godere dei loro abbigliamenti sfociandoli come su una passerella, Blogger, stilisti, fashion editors, studenti e qualche fotografo un po’ egocentrico. Tutti differenti ma tutti spinti da una cosa comune, la ricerca di un look da fare gridare wow!

Fancy London

Oh yeah! Today is the day! Valentines’? Of course…But what else?! Maybe a new London Fashion Week starting? Somerset House, main place of the event, is today the best style laboratory ever. Between one show and another is really recommendable having a look to the great looks that bloggers, journalists, stylists or cool guests have chosen for the occasion. Naomi Rowland and Amy-Rose Watts (Two shoes, one pair); Fiona Jane (spotding.com); Nikita Andrianova; Jimmy King or Olivia Kijo (oliwiora) have a lot of that called transgressive and original chic glamour .

Monday morning

It´s incredible how many different and fancy outfits a fashion sensitive eye like ours can find on a weekly day. Unfortunately, it´s still very cold in the city Samuel Jonhson once said if you are tired of it, you’re tired of life…Faux fur coats, denim jackets, beanies, or high top boots don´t give way to new trends and for what I heard maybe will be for long. Apparently it´s gonna snow! By the way, I´ve confidence in my londoners. They will add them to their looks (hot or not). So, there will be a time in between winter and spring when we´ll start to see bright colors, sandals with socks, boxer shorts or crop tops. But, for now, we´ve  all new season must haves just on the windows of the shops.
