Since quite some seasons designers provide us with mini versions of our favourite “not so small purse styles”, like tote or satchel. Consequently, the mini bag has evolved as a major competitor to classic small bags like flap bag or clutch. The mini tote shape is by far my favourite among the new generation of shrunken bags. So what are the coolest mini tote bags 2015?
Since 2010 a really huge number of designers started to shrink the totes, satchels and bowlers … in oder to adjust all our favorite big bags for occasions where we do not want to carry a lot of stuff with us. Let’s have a closer look at the Saint Laurent Sac de Jour Nano today!

Let’s continue the makeover of the skirts department of our wardrobe for the upcoming fall. As we already discussed in a previous post midi surely was the major skirt length that was snapped by street style photographers during the most recent fashion month! But somehow major online stores didn’t feel that this skirt length is going to become a mainstream favorite any time soon and continued to strongly focus on mini skirts. So how to wear them and which ones are the best this fall?
Guess that even those persons with only the slightest fashion interest have recognized that 60ies are back this fall. In a previous post I already showed you the softly draped side of the era by means of Ossie Clark style flouncy dresses. But sure there is also another more structured and tailored side – its the original mod shift dress.
We already analyzed the fall 2014 trends regarding headgear, coats and sweaters. What else usually makes an impression on the runway? For sure the most integral component of most collections – The dresses! Just take Bottega Veneta with an entire fall collection based on dresses. Despite of this runway situation I feel that most people in the streets no matter whether its fashion week street style or just everyday city life rarely buy dresses. Here everything seems to be about separates and pants! That said I want to keep the dress trend section quite short, because I feel that there is only one major trend called 60ies revival!
Since some seasons coats got bigger and bigger and oversizing started to be all around. This fall things seemed to change a little bit – besides the oversized pieces several leading designers seemed to concentrate more on tailored coats!
Two is a coincidence 3 a trend! But when it comes to hats on the fall 2014 runways its more than just a trend! Its a must for every woman, who pays just a little attention to fashion! There were floppy wide brim styles with just a bit of 70ies factor at Saint Laurent (EURO 790.00) and Coach – Great for oblong and very angular faces, but incredibly good looking with a perfectly round face too. A patchwork fedora at Chanel fall winter pre-collection and Rag & Bone fedora hats – Best for round faces, but equally well working with an oblong face when the brim is strictly facing downward (that’s the case for Maison Michel Henrietta but not so much for the Virginie)! And not to forget, besides Rag & Bone fedora hats, Chanel, Saint Laurent and Coach, oversized melon hats at Emporio Armani – likely to look good on everyone, who is brave enough to wear them with attitude!
In general I am a huge fan of “French style” and love to keep all the looks of woman like Caroline de Maigret, Inès de La Fressange, Carine Roitfeld or Clémence Poésy on my pinterest pinboards. However, among all those French style icons one is my personal standout. Its Emmanuelle Alt, editor in chief of Vogue Paris! Comes fashion or couture week I am always totally excited to spot some street style pictures of her on the internet to get some new inspirations! Find some Emmanuelle Alt summer style from the couture week below!
Day 1 – Emmanuelle Alt summer style
For her appearance at the Schiaparelli and Dior shows on Monday Emmanuelle opted for a black pant suit with a black top underneath. The standout element were a pair of red kitten heels with a black cap toe.
Regarding fashion mid June is a busy time. Pre fall collections hit stores and summer sale 2014 kicked off. What are the best bargains to hunt for during summer sale 2014? Of course, basic pieces, wardrobe staples of high quality, that might be out of reach at a non sale price. Thinking about the upcoming beach holidays one of the best sale purchases might be light weight summer dresses. Preferably those that work from pool to evening! Here is a list of my 3 favorites.
