La Blouse Roumaine

Hello, dearest readers! I know I've been quite absent for a while, but I figured that this is the best moment for my comeback. 

Today we celebrate the Great Union in Romania and I believe one of the best way to promote your country and to show your love for it is to wear the Romanian folkloric costumes (the Romanian dress). I remembered that Yves Saint Laurent was inspired by said costumes and in 1981, he created "La blouse roumaine".  Other designers that have been influenced by the Romanian dress are Tom Ford,  Phillippe Guilet, Joseph Altuzarra, Jean Paul Gaultier, Oscar de la Renta.

Here's what the blouse looked like and below that you can see a Romanian traditional blouse (ie):

Maison Martin Margiela x H&M Lookbook

And here it is, one of the most anticipated collaborations of 2012, Maison Martin Margiela for H&M. After seeing the preview photos all over the internet a few days ago, I was dying for the lookbook to appear. I must say, although this is probably the collaboration that shocked me the most, I really was expecting it to be the greatest so far, since I've always been a fan of MMM. 

I absolutely adore the shoes, the coats, jackets and the accessories (how cool is the glove shoulder bag?!), I'm not really a fan of what they came up with regarding the clothes. The do have the Margiela touch, but I'm positive that they could have done much, much better than this. 

My intention is not to offend the collection or those who like it, I believe that sometimes, fashion really is a matter of taste. 

What do you guys think about the collection? Will you be buying the pieces?

Lana Del Rey for H&M Campaign Photos

A few weeks ago I was telling you (on Facebook) that Lana Del Rey is the new face for the H&M autumn/winter 2012-13 collection. Well, today H&M shared the campaign photos, shot by Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin, which feature the star with her usual pout, amazing  lashes and her trademark sixties hairdo. The singer is also set to record a cover of "Blue Velvet", which will be featured on the mini-film for this campaign.

Fashionable Oympics

Ok, let's hope that those who read this post didn't stay up to see the closing ceremony of The Olympic Games last night/yesterday (depending on where you live), because words won't be able to describe how wonderful the show was, with all its lights and music aaand SUPERMODELS! Yes, that's right, supermodels were present, people! All born and breed in the United Kingdom and dressed up in clothes created by even "Britisher" designers.
 Below you can see the models strutting their stuff on the catwalk, but also their photoshoot for the September issue of British Vogue.

Rihanna for RIVER ISLAND

Ok, so Rihanna. I can't say I liked the way she dressed at the beginning of her career, but I've definitely admired her style evolution for the past two years or so. I absolutely love it how she can go from grunge to glam in a blink of an eye. To find out that she will be launching a capsule collection for River Island, one of my favorite British retailers made my day! I'm sure I'll be thrilled with most of the collection, so I can't wait for Spring 2013, when it's going to hit the stores! 

Here's what Rihanna had to say about the collaboration: “I’ve been wanting to design my own collection for some time. River Island is the perfect partner for me to collaborate with and working with a British, family run business also really appealed to me. I find London really inspiring and River Island loves to have fun with clothes. I’m looking forward to working with them and creating something really special.”

So, what do you think about today's news? Excited to see the collection or not so much?

Below you can see a few of Rihanna's most striking outfits:
