Bring on the Kirkwoods

Shoe genius, Nicholas Kirkwood, collaborated with some big names for the SS11 collections - Rodarte and Peter Pilotto to name a few.

The only problem is which ones to choose.. Here are some of the options:

Kirkwood for Peter Pilotto

Another successful (and sculptural) collaboration with the Mulleavy sisters for Rodarte

Emmanuelle Succeeds to the Throne

As you might know, Emmanuelle Alt has been named the new rédactrice en chef of Vogue Paris - and thank GOD (and Condé Nast) for that! Who else would be worthy of running one of the world's best styled magazines after the legendary Roitfeld?

But what is Kaiser Karl's verdict? To WWD he said, "Her style is her big shoulders, long legs, tight jeans, sleeves up to the elbow, one hip out." "I personally like her. She's a handsome French woman. She has a style, but is it enough to make a whole magazine?" "As editor-in-chief, she may blossom." We believe in you, Emmanuelle!

The Other Karl

I'm off to the Canary Islands for a week so while I'm away, I encourage you all to take a look at the amazing stylist/fashion editor, Karl Templer's work. He's worked with everyone from Alexander Wang to Christy Turlington and I especially love the work he's done for Interview and Vogue Italia.

Here are some of the awesome pics that Karl has worked on.

Cozy Christmas (and stylish, of course!)

Perfect for the cozy (and COLD!) days around Christmas and New Years: a warm shearling vest and a soft grey shirt underneath combined with a statement necklace (like this silver chain) for just a hint of glamour.

Put on a pair of heels if you're going out and you'll be dancing in no time!

Go Grey! London

Wow for a wonderful cape! And with those boots!! Wearing only grey sounds a bit boring in theory, but this woman shows how cool it can look in reality - so thanks for that.

Happy Christmas everybody! (in Denmark we celebrate it on the 24th).

Carine Stops at Vogue!!!

NOOOOO! At only 56 of age, Carine Roitfeld is leaving Paris Vogue to work on personal projects. I just really hope that these projects will be for magazines and great designers (can you say Tom and Mario?) so we can enjoy more of Carine's incredible eye for style.
It's really the end of an era for me personally, since I've never seen a French Vogue without a touch of Carine and I'm wondering (fearing, one might say) WHO the new editor in chief will be.

According to Vogue.co.uk Carine is leaving at the end of January and her replacement will be announced in a couple of weeks.

Carine will be truely missed at Vogue! - funny leg pose and all.

Popular Bags at LFW SS11

The PS1 bag from Proenza Schouler is everywhere at the moment, and of course it was also to be seen during LFW. Notice the girl's amazing jacket!
Chanel's Classic Flap Bag - designed by Karl in the 80s (not to be confused with the Reissue 2.55 designed by Miss Chanel herself) - still rocks the fashion world and was made up-to-date with a leather/shearling aviator-style jacket.

Well, I'm off to London for a couple of days (Selfridges' shoe heaven, here I come!) so have a great weekend guys.

Feminine Skirt and an Army Green Coat, London

A lovely combination of an army green coat, a feminine skirt, and a cool attitude.

A Jacobs Inspiration, London

Yes, the fifties do come to mind when I think Marc Jacobs and Fall 2010, but Marc also felt a grungy vibe, and, apparently, these two London fashionistas felt it too.
