This shirt by R13. You can get it at sites like Net-A-Porter and LaGarconne. I pretty much love everything R13 makes, but this one reminds me of zines and drawings my friends and I used to make on the backs of our notebooks in high school. It's a cashmere and cotton blend, and it costs $195.
Next up, a classic. I've wanted one of these Moschino logo belts for a long time and this may be the year to finally save up and get one. They've been around since the 80s-90s, and have recently been seen on "celebrities" yet again. Just a simple way to really give any outfit that always-needed touch of badass. Moschino has a lot of different styles, sayings and colors on their website, but I prefer this classic black one with gold letters. ($295)
Since were on the logo kick, I'm living for this incredible necklace, with "mantra" motto, from I STILL LOVE YOU NYC, and available at internationalplayground.com. I found out about this site a while back, forgot about it, then rediscovered it (love it when that happens) ;) also, this piece is handmade in New York, which I think is awesome. There's also a smaller "candy" colored version, and different sayings. This XL one is $75.
This post could probably have something from Swedish designer ACNE on it every time, like R13 they can do no wrong in my eyes. Amazing balance of a rock / grunge, humor and high fashion. I'm including 3 of my fave pieces here...
I mean, how awesome is that hard case clutch($1000)? ._. I'm kind of a whore for accessories, I suppose, but the slashed jacket ($3000) and bondage sandal ($670) ? Works of art. What I like about all these pieces is that they are bold, but still very wearable and add instant sass and irony to an outfit (if both those things are possible at once.) Also, I seem to be leaning toward a very neutral palette for s/s '14. I have to say I'm not feeling pastels or the crazy florals that I'm seeing on a lot of the interwebz. How will I translate these ideas to my everyday look? I'll be posting about that in the next upcoming months...stay tuned and as always thanks for reading x
