Musette Spring/Summer 2017 Fashion show

Nu stiu cum sunteti voi, insa eu iarna nu ma pot gandi decat la vara. Prin urmare, in anotimpul rece, dupa ce termin de cumparat cizme si paltoane (dupa cum va spuneam, sunt de neoprit in acest sector), incep sa imi planific garderoba de vara.

Prezentarea Musette de zilele trecute nu a facut decat sa imi alimenteze gandurile aproape necurate in privinta shoppingului, facandu-ma sa adaug rapid 3-4 piese pe short list-ul pentru sezonul urmator.

Piesele colectiei ce urmeaza sa ne incante garderobele in primavara viitoare urmeaza o directie stilistica ce se observa deja de cateva sezoane in stilul Musette, o directie ce mizeaza pe stilul modern, urban si pe impletiturile de texturi surprinzatoare : glitter, nylon, piele, bumbac si satin.  Continue reading

Velvet Shoes – This season’s must have trend

The Fall/Winter 2016 season bring back a texture we seamed to forgot in the past years: the velvet. Everything this season will be covered in velvet, from dresses, to blazers and trousers, lingerie or chokers.  Misterious, sexy, glam and uber-trendy, the must have pieces of the season have at least a touch of velvet.

While the main problem with this texture is that it really needs to be high quality, otherwise it will probably look cheap – and we don’t want that , it also can make you look bigger than you actually are. So, to solve this issues and not give up on this lovely trend, I advice you to take a look at the velvet shoes on the market this season.

A pair of velvet shoes  is just the item you need to embrace the fall trends, but also keep your usual style in place. They are also versatile, so you can mix them up with any outfit of your choice, because they go perfectly well in the day and in the night, from casual look to super elegant ones.

I personally love the velvet sandals, I this they work best with this noble and elegant texture. On the other hand, I also love slippers and loafers, which I can mix with a pyjama set for a casual look. alexandre-birman

 

Of course you will find stilettos,  70’s inspired boots or over-knee boots, sneakers, all in velvet, you’ll be able to choose your favorite from a wide range of models.

In the end, because I’m really intro flats lately, I must show you this pair of velvet pointed flats by Paul Andres, in a perfect shade of dark blue. Aren’t they beautiful?

Anyway, whatever you will choose, I do advice you not to wear more than 1 piece of clothing in velvet in your outfit. It may look good on the catwalk, but It’s a little too much for every day life, no matter the occasion. Wear a pair of velvet shoes and mix it with denim, lace, silk, cotton, maybe even cashmere in the colder days, whatever you think it works for a stylish outfit.

PS: I think velvet shoes are here to stay, at least for the next 2 seasons so they just might be a good investment!

Dedicated sandals for a hot summer

You know how much I love shoes and for this reason, I am constantly searching for new shoe providers, new brands, new shoe artisans, etc.

I don’t always fit with standard shoes found in stores, not because they have a problem, but because my feet are sometimes in between numbers, the laces are to short or any other common reason. This is why I always tend to personalize my shoes, choosing the color I want, the heel, the laces.

It’s  been a month or so that I visited Gabriel Basso showroom, a new name for me, a brand that offers custom made shoes, for men and women. Continue reading
