According to Carine Roitfeld and co of French Vogue these young and fresh-faced models are thé rising stars at the moment. They are all French models and could be seen as the next generation of power players. Well, and we all know how significant Carine's influence is in fashionworld.....Besides, this photo was shot by Viktor Demarchelier, son of great fashion photographer Patrick Demarchelier.
With or without a little knit? Knit sweaters tight around the shoulders is a trend we see more often lately. What do you think, is it just 'a thing' for chic men in Milan and golfers? Or should it be allowed again...? Photo from Jak & Jil.

FOAM Fotografie Museum presents a unique fashion blog photo exposition! Fashion blogger Garance Doré was asked to take pictures during AIFW and all these photos from shows, fashionable people and streetstyle pictures were immediately placed on the walls of FOAM. Sounds wonderful, I want to go! Photo from Fashionscene.

About 15 years ago I bought my first real jeans jacket in London. This jacket was from the brand French Connection and I really felt in love with it at that time. Through the years a few Levi's jeans jackets did their best to please me.... But now I found myself a new 'best jacket', in Italy. This Dondup jeans jacket has got a beautiful faded colour blue, the perfect length and is worn out at the right places. (Picture of the jacket later this week...)

In a small but very nice typical Amsterdam setting in the Oude Spiegelstraat (Nine Streets) initiator Bart de Groot has succeeded in bringing the spirit of Acne to the Netherlands.

Kate Moss is always ahead of the game and now she has been spotted with these black patent ´Jackson´ loafers by Repetto. The Repetto store in Paris said that there is an increased interest in these patent shoes available in black or white. The ´Jackson´ loafer will be online available from ASOS and in the Repetto stores from August. Let´s beforehand practice the moonwalk!
Pietrasanta is a small village on the coast of northern Tuscany in Italy. A town with lots of artists, sculptors and galleries. It is considered as the number one place in the world for marble working. And with his narrow cobbled streets and lovely restaurants it is 'a visit you can't refuse'!

Emmanuelle Alt was born to work at Vogue Paris. And together with Carine Roitfeld they really rock as a fashion editors team. Here we see Emmanuelle with Geraldine Saglio, probably the new 'apprentice' at Vogue at the moment. What a dream job!
