Interior Inspiration Ideas - Dusty Hues

Today I dream about these beautiful dusty tones which you can see in the pictures below.

I've always been a fan of clean, all-white interiors but recently I've been obsessed with these muted pastel, powdery hues. They give me the feeling of serenity, tranquillity and real peace of mind which has always been important for me when designing interiors to work and sleep in. Dusty pink combined with powdery baby blue, mint or grey make an amazing combination, subtle and not over-powering without making the interior look too dark.

As you can see, they look great in any style, blended with antiques, modern pieces or with copper elements. What do you think about this decorating idea?

Haider Ackermann Spring 2015 RTW

Today I dream about the stunning Spring 2015 ready-to-wear collection by Haider Ackermann. Just today I was looking at Haider's latest Fall 2016 collection which he showed in Paris. Then I remembered this collection, which I really wanted to share here but unfortunately didn't have enough time :(

Haider first caught my attention with his amazing Spring 2012 collection which was full of heavy silk, ruffling and draping. It made a huge impression on me and it seemed so sexy in a not very obvious way! For me, Haider is the master of mixing prints, patterns and colours and his every show and collection is a visual masterpiece.

This time the colour palette is much softer, from pale pink, through to my beloved mauve to moss green and a super trendy shade this year - marsala. This may be caused by Haider's inspiration for this collection - “I was thinking about broken flowers - I always have to go dark!” he said. “But in the end it's much softer than I could ever have imagined.” Again, there is a lot of layering, draping and ruffling and deconstruction. Haider is fantastic when it comes to using different kinds of fabrics, from lightweight chiffon and silk to heavy suede, cashmere and distressed sweatshirt cotton. Perfection!

The Great Spring 2015 Collection

Today I dream about the Spring 2015 collection by The Great. The Great is a women’s collection by Emily Current and Meritt Elliott, best known for the super-cool denim brand Current/Elliot, launched in 2008. Since then, the creative duo have been dressing celebrities for red carpets, styling editorials and advertising campaigns.

Emily and Meritt who have been best friends since they met as students at UCLA more than 15 years ago left Current/Elliot in late 2012 and now they are getting back into design as they have just launched their new and much anticipated project - The Great.

Their debut collection described by the designers as the Casual Americana Wonderland consists of easy to wear pieces that unite both tomboyish and ultra-feminine influences. This time, Current and Elliott are working with a wide range of fabrics and silhouettes and leaving out denim for now. Fingers crossed that they will enjoy the great success that this collection deserves! 

How do you like their first collection?

Les Chiffoniers Autumn/Winter 2013 Collection

Today I dream about the edgy A/W 2013 collection by the cult London label, Les Chiffoniers.

The brand was founded by Leena Similu who has worked at Stella McCartney and Jill Sander. Leena took the fashion world by storm by re-inventing and revamping leggings, designing pieces in PVC and sequins.

The brand is adored by some of the world's most famous super models like Kate Moss, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley or Anja Rubik who wore Les Chiffoniers' trousers in one of the episodes of the Polish edition of Project Runway.

The new collection is innovative, raw and full of unexpected details. I love the combination of different textures and fabrics. Leena is using difficult fabrics like leather, heavy silk and organza. It's quite hard to make them look flattering and feminine but Leena cleverly managed to do so by folding the leather into pleats to make it look feminine or by adding the texture of a knitted jumper to a leather sweatshirt.

What do you think?

Heimstone Spring/Summer 2014 Collection

After being asleep for a long time ;) today I dream about the wonderful Spring/Summer 2014 collection by Heimstone.

This lovely French label was founded by Alix Petit in 2007. Originally it was an accessories brand, then swimwear was added and finally Alix decided to design a whole collection. 

The newest collection, titled "Iceberg", was inspired by Alix's trip to Australia and its name refers to the natural pools of water formed in the white stone overlooking Bondi Beach in Sydney. The collection is also influenced by the Alice Springs desert park and Bondi Beach surf culture. 

In the collection we can see many references to Australian culture like the polka dot print which is a reinterpretation of Aboriginal paintings, prints of surfers which were photographed by the designer on a beach in Sydney and the beer print drawn in watercolour which is taken from the design of an Australian beer. 

I love the eclectic mix of prints and patterns - it reminds me a bit of the style of Julie Sarinara from Sincerely Jules who in my eyes is the master of mixing and matching different prints. The collection is very feminine with all the flowy dresses and silk shorts but also urban and definitely comfortable.

In my opinion it has a slight Isabel Marant feel to it as it combines loose dresses with suede boots and brave combinations of prints.

Below are my favourite looks from the collection, how do you like it?

Tory Burch Resort 2014 Collection

Today I dream about the latest super chic Resort 2014 collection by Tory Burch.

Firstly, I have to admit that I was never a huge Tory Burch fan but this amazing lookbook has changed my mind completely. I don't think that there is one person who is interested in fashion and has never heard of Tory Burch. This talented American designer has gained a huge amount of loyal fans, won several fashion awards for her designs as well as earning Oprah Winfrey's endorsement since founding her label in 2004.

The new collection is a mix painterly impressionist-like florals, chic stripes, delicate pastel colours as well as classic crisp white and navy, all with a subtle nautical feel. I know you might think "Florals? For spring? Ground breaking" but then again, what's spring without florals?! :) 

The mesmerising lookbook was shot around the pool and among the palms of the legandary Chateau Marmont. To get more of the spirit of the shoot, you have to see the campaign video made by filmmaker Shane Sigler who captures models Laura Kampman and Mirte Maas. 

What a nice break from the surrounding winter!
