H&M Spring 2013 Press Preview

I went to the H&M showroom this Friday for a sneak preview of its Spring 2013 collection and let me tell that it's gonna be LEGEN, wait for it, DARY! Oh H&M, you never cease to amaze me.
The collection features a range of tasseled and fringed skirts, embossed leather jackets, sheer printed maxi skirts, embellished jackets, cargo shirts, studded vests, pineapple print shirts and slip on shoes that fit in just right with the boho chic style.
The piece that caught my eye and stole my heart was a Spanish red tasseled miniskirt. Scarlett O'Hara had the iconic curtain dress made from the draperies at Tara, so why can't you enjoy a skirt made from drapery tassels this spring?
But the pièce de résistance was definitely the patchwork brocade sculpted jacket. All the women there sighed when they saw it and realized that they would have to wait a few more months before wearing this outstanding jacket.

V for Vintage- Escapade à Paris

In weekendul 17-18 noiembrie 2012, V for Vintage a transformat Sala Dalles in capitala mondiala a modei, Paris. Peste 3.500 de vizitatori au pasit pragul celei de-a 9-a editii a celui mai mare targ de cultura vintage si design romanesc din Romania, facand din „Escapade à Paris” cea mai de succes editie a targului.

Tematica „Escapade à Paris” a sedus cei peste 3.500 de vizitatori ai targului V for Vintage, care au petrecut 2 zile cautand comori vintage autentice, proband piese din colectiile speciale ale designerilor romani si incercand bunatati si cosmetice bio. Etajul Salii Dalles a fost transformat in totalitate intr-un bistro parizian. Pe melodiile acordeonului frantuzesc, vizitatorii au savurat croissante, degustat cocktailuri sau delicioase si colorate macarons.

Suede over the knee boots

Every autumn I decide to buy suede boots and every autumn I realize it's a bad idea. As much as I love suede shoes, keeping them spotless, soft and supple in this season is quite challenging. 
I have to watch my step all the time and watch the weather forecast before leaving home every day. 
I remember this one time when I was wearing the infamous UGG boots and it started pouring like crazy.
I had to seek shelter inside a shopping mall for 5-6 hours until the rain stopped. Oh, the humanity!

Maison Martin Margiela for H&M Fall 2012

The much-anticipated collaborative release from Maison Martin Margiela with H&M will hit stores on November 15th. I got to see the entire collection yesterday at the H&M showroom and because I am such a good sport I will share this great experience with you guys.
To be completely honest with you, I wasn't over the moon when H&M first released the lookbook of its collaboration with Maison Martin Margiela a couple of weeks ago.
I thought to myself: The pieces are minimalist, ambiguous, oversized and masculine and I would never see myself wearing these.
Boy, I was wrong about this collection. I loved everything about it when I saw it up close.
The shoes are to die for! I saw the most spectacular pair of leggings, mirror disco ball leggings. How cool is that? Candy wrapper clutches, invisible pumps, face-less watches, just to name a few of the items that had impressed me yesterday.
Take a look for yourselves. Here are the pictures I shot at the showroom, enjoy!

V for Vintage Escapade à Paris


V for VINTAGE
ESCAPADE À PARIS
targ de moda & cultura vintage
editia a IX-a
17 – 18 noiembrie 2012, 11:00 – 20:00
Sala Dalles (
B-dul Nicolae Balcescu, nr. 18)

Toamna se intampina in picioare, cu bagajul facut si pasaportul in poseta! Destinatia? Paris, orasul luminilor, alfa si omega scenei de moda, balansoarul iubirii, unicul loc din lume unde poti sterge firimiturile de croissant de pe bluza de matase fara a risca sa pari mai putin chic.
V for VINTAGE nu cere, nu te invita, nu te previne, ci te duce direct in inima capitalei lumii modei pentru o escapada scurta si de neuitat: un weekend la Paris! V for VINTAGE Escapade à Paris are loc in weekendul 17 – 18 noiembrie 2012 in spatiul generos al Salii Dalles (Bd. Nicolae Balcescu, nr. 18).

Numai aici poti gasi vintage autentic, cunoaste designeri romani de haine, bijuterii si accesorii, gusta bunatati sanatoase si incerca cosmetice pentru trup si voie buna. Ca in fiecare an, Molecule F va asteapta cu colectiile tinerilor designeri romani iar zona vintage cu mici comori din cufere de demult. Iar calatoria e de-abia la inceput, pentru ca editia aceasta am rugat participantii nostri sa se abandoneze spiritului calatoriei. Pornind de la tema Escapade à Paris, fiecare dintre expozantii nostri a creat un set de piese unice, inspirate direct de tumultoasa capitala a modei. Un stand special il are castigatorul concursului pentru designeri debutanti, un new entry in lumea modei triplu-premiat de V for VINTAGE, the Place Concept Store si Molecule F.

Spiritul calatoriei e si in tombola V for VINTAGE de toamna. Vizitatorii care completeaza taloanele de participare pot castiga un bilet de avion dus-intors pana la Paris, oferit de Blue Air. Oricand vor, capitala modei le poate sta la varful pantofilor. Premiul deux este un set de litere decorative murale in stil parizian, marca Deco Letters.
V for VINTAGE aloca intreg etajul Salii Dalles zonei de lounge, de data aceasta denumita zona Bistro. Aici noi si partenerii nostri declinam toate sensurile cuvantului escapada - o scufundare totala in placerile rezervate de obicei perioadei de vacanta: se pot incerca savuroasele macarons Madame Lucie si bea o ceasca delicioasa de cafea alaturi de un croissant. Velocipedul te va astepta cuminte alaturi, incarcat desigur cu pachete, pungi si funde. Biletul de intrare trebuie pastrat bine, pentru ca numai in baza sa puteti primi un delicios cocktail cu Chambord si un pahar de Vinul Cavalerului, in limita stocului disponibil.
Unul cate unul, cei 2.372 de km care despart cele doua orase se vor topi, lasand in urma doar amintirea sunetului unui acordeon si un oras redevenit Micul Paris.
