Anna Dello Russo accessorises H&M

She is the absolute queen of quirky accessories and italian bling, the editor-at-large at Vogue Japan branded  ‘fashion supermaniac’ and she has now created a line of accessories for H&M.

http://mistermort.typepad.com/.a/6a010535d07789970c013487c8bc27970c-800wi

Available in stores from 4th of October, the collection includes sunglasses, jewellery, hats, shoes and handbags – and even a particularly stylish suitcase.

“I am excited by this collaboration – it’s the first time H&M has involved a fashion director in a special project,” said Dello Russo. “This is the sign of an important evolution in fashion, and I am both thrilled and humbled to be the one chosen to lead it. I wanted to create precious accessories that are impossible to find.  As a stylist I know accessorising is essential – it is the personal touch to any outfit. With these pieces everybody can have fun, turning an ordinary day into a fantastic fashion day.” (vogue.com)

This lady surely knows how to make her day special! Not mentioning she is looking hotter than hell at the age of 50 – we love you Anna!

Style over Speed

As of next week I am starting a new job which means cycling to work every day and I am beyond excited! I have seen many beautiful and stylish girls on their bikes in London and Paris and really want to check out Copenhagen which is famous as a capital of city cycling.  I have collected some photos of cool girls on their bikes below and although I am not brave enough to cycle without a helmet, I will sure have fun finding new ways of cycle-dressing up.

This is my favourite photo…she is so beautiful I almost overlooked her prosthetic leg. Moving and inspiring..amazing shot!

Madonna Mia!

I totally missed Her Madgesty’s birthday last week – belated Happy Birthday to the Queen of Pop! Why oh why do people make all those nasty comments about her? Yes I agree, her music might not be anywhere as good as she used to be but I will forever cherish Immaculate Collection.  Yes she might be trying a bit too hard but I admire her work ethic, her ability to change looks so easily and successfully and also her fearless approach to life. Yes her films were never good and she made so many wrong choices but life is nothing but boring if you don’t try new things. It is comforting to know that even the rich, talented and famous can fail! And would I wear hot pants and fishnet tights at 54? ABSOLUTELY if I had her body. Plus, she is a pop star, remember, she can wear whatever she wants..8)) Here are some of her best looks through the years:

Coleen goes retro

Whether you are a fan of Coleen or not, I thought you would enjoy these cool photos she did with the legendary British photographer Terry O’Neill, who has worked with so many icons including Audrey Hepburn, The Queen, Michael Caine, David Bowie and Mick Jagger. As Littlewoods celebrates its 80th birthday, the store has recreated some of its most iconic catalogue covers from throughout the decades. Check it out, I love the 80s!!

My summer icon

My style icon for this summer is Brigitte Bardot. I always loved her photos and the strong mix of femininity and innocence. I love her hair, her sunglasses, her cropped trousers, her summer dresses, her stripes and gingham…and that certain je ne sais quoi about her!

Kaiser Karl in a Little Black Jacket

Chanel’s latest project celebrating the timeless appeal of their classic tweed ‘little black jacket’ is an interesting project. Karl’s favourite celebrities were photographed accessorising it in different ways. The photos are all made by Karl himself and very visually pleasing.  The book will come out in autumn and you can see all 113 photos here:
