Brics Autumn/Winter 2011 Collection

Today I dream about the wonderful A/W 2011 collection from the young Danish brand, Brics.

Behind the brand there's a trio of three talented ladies - Ingrid, Elise and Stephanie who are also the creators of one of the most popular Scandinavian fashion and beauty blogs, Anywho.dk.

Brics is a collection of outerwear and it's all about simplicity and minimalism. I love the pastel hues as much as the oversized shapes, they are perfect for layering!

Aubin & Wills Spring 2012 Collection

Today I dream about the charming Spring 2012 collection by British brand Aubin & Wills.

Aubin & Wills was launched in 2008 as a junior label to the well established brand, Jack Wills. It's targeting an older audience but it's still made with the typical passion for British culture and heritage that can be seen in Jack Wills collections.

The Spring 2012 collection is a mixture of timeless wardrobe staples with a modern twist. It's so wearable, comfortable, effortless and chic - what more could you ask for?

I love the collection as much as I love the accompanying shoot featuring Irina Lazareanu & Alex James.

Have a look at some of my favourite looks and a few of the amazing pictures from the campaign.

Tati Cotliar in Vogue UK February 2012

Today, I dream about this interesting editorial photographed by Raymond Meier and styled by Charlotte Pilcher, starring the adorable Tati Cotliar.

The editorial is entitled 'I Am a Camera' and tells the story of a front-row fashion blogger in the hotel, getting ready to see the Parisian shows.

As much as it's nice to see appreciation and acknowledgement of the existence of fashion bloggers in the hermetic world of high fashion, I'm pretty sure that it may include a cheeky satirical wink to infer that us bloggers blindly follow the latest trends, no matter what... :)

Tranquil House in Cape Town

Today I dream about this peaceful looking house located in Cape Town, South Africa.

The house belongs to the photographer Adrian Nakic and his wife June. The inside is filled with open space and natural light. It looks even more tranquil and minimalist thanks to the white walls and floors.

The whole interior is very well organised, it looks like there is nothing random in it, every item is carefully chosen to match the rest.

The exterior is even more impressive and very unique; I love the swing chair outside as well as the amazingly well designed roof. Despite the big amount of white colour inside the house still looks warm and cosy. Breathtaking!

Spike and Cone Bracelets & Rings

Today I dream about these super cool spike bracelets.

I noticed them first on Aimee's amazing blog, Song of Style and then I spent ages trying to find out where it was from.

Aimee's bracelet comes from CC Skye's collection but there are a few other places where you can get a similar one. Eddie Borgo makes them too but they are much more expensive. As a cheap alternative I found a very similar style at ASOS and I'm already waiting for the delivery :)

It's hard to tell if they are all copied from each other or just 'inspired'. I chose the cheap version as the state of my finances is quite depressing, but when I do have a spare $1000 I promise you Eddie, I'll get one of yours too! :)

I'm still looking for the pave cone bracelet so if you see it anywhere at a reasonable price please let me know!

Personal Style - Karmen Pedaru

Today I dream about Karmen Pedaru's amazing style.

The 22-year-old Estonian model took the modelling world by storm and currently she's ranked at number seven on the top models chart at Models.com.

She appeared in advertisements for Chloe, Gucci, Missoni, Ralph Lauren, Michael Kors and many more as well as in editorials in the best fashion magazines. Her style is sleek and sophisticated; it's a perfect balance between smart and fabulous and a rebellious rock chick.

Her style is simple, based on great quality wardrobe staples spiced up with edgy accessories. Have a look!

Keep Karmen; Carry on :)

Stefanel Spring/Summer 2012 Collection

Today I dream about the new Spring/Summer 2012 collection from Stefanel.

I was very impressed with Stefanel's Autumn/Winter 2011 collection so my expectations for this next one were really high. Thankfully I can say that I'm not disappointed at all!

The collection is really great! The soft pastel colours and slouchy, slightly sporty silhouettes reminded me of Philip Lim's Spring 2012 collection which I wrote about here. The collection is very feminine, minimalist and just perfect for the summer.

The slouchy and sophisticated silhouettes, beautiful, soft and flowy fabrics and great accessories (especially the bags) take this collection to my top ten of S/S 2012 collections!
