Weekend Diaries XII: Beatrice

December 16, 2012


This is Beatrice, the AFS exchange student from Italy. Last friday, we were just talking about art and things like that and suddenly, a really cold breeze blew her hair. I couldn't help it, I had to take this picture.

How to choose frames?

December 13, 2012

Glasses inspired by Warby Parker

These days I've been locked in my house, just studying for my midterms. I've had like 7 exams already, yup, it's like a nightmare.

All this studying thing stresses me out. And since my glasses broke, I can barely see when I'm reading, writing or drawing. 
Seriously, the other day we were in math class and I had to strain my eyes sooooo much to see what the teacher had written on the board. 

For the first time, my eyes were tired. My friend Martha was like 'Why don't you just buy new glasses?'

November 30, 2012

Don't you love carrying a notebook wherever you go to write down all your ideas? Or just to keep track of everything you have to do? Well, I do that a lot. And I think these little notebooks are just perfect for that. I mean, we have tablets and smartphones these days, but there's nothing cooler than having a nice notebook.

They're made by Cool Material and they're available in six different colors, including three different camo patterns. And yes, there's tan camo which is one of my favourites ;)

How to wear camo?

November 26, 2012


Today, we're going to talk about a trend in menswear for this Fall. Camouflage. These days, our eyes get a bit tired of seeing camo everywhere. Outside the shows, on street style photos... Wherever you go!!

Things I love about Fall

November 13, 2012


Hey! Maybe it's a bit late to post this, but whatever. It's finally starting to feel like Fall in my country, that means it's a bit foggy in the morning and there's a cold breeze during the day and I looooooove it!

Now, when I wake up, I have this urge to grab a jumper and just put it on. But... around 12pm it gets a little bit hot. And, at 5/6pm, that cold breeze comes back!! Well, who understands this weather?!

Inspired X

November 11, 2012

Hello! I know, I promised you guys I was going to update this blog as soon as I could. It's just... School's driving me crazy!! But you've heard enough about that. Well, here it is.

It's been a while since my last 'inspired' post. That's because I couldn't find any inspiring images to post here, but now I did! I've been looking for images on Tumblr, Pinterest and sites like that. But at the end, I will always get my inspiration from the magical world of Flickr.


But Victor!!! Only two images?!   ...Sadly, yes. These are the images that are inspiring the most right now, I guess it's because of the season, they feel kind of cold and warm at the same time and I love the cinematic atmosphere they have. Ahhh, I wish it snowed in my country. Well, I have to go now. I need to finish my homework (arghhh).


Have a nice day!

Wishlist: The Coat

October 25, 2012

Coat inspired by Maison Martin Margiela x H&M

Last time, I talked about overthinking and... the collaboration between Margiela and H&M. So, let me tell you something, about the overthinking post... Well forget about it, because I can't stop overthinking about that collaboration, seriously.

I developed some kind of obsession towards it, each piece is perfect. But there's especially one thing from that collection that's stuck in my head, and that's the wool overcoat.

Overthinking

October 23, 2012

Inspired by L'Officiel Hommes Germany Fall 2012

Okay, so while everybody is talking about the Margiela x H&M preview party... I'm just sitting here... overthinking some things.

It's not that I'm not excited for the collaboration, I loveeee it. I've seen a bit of the lookbook and it's just so amazing. I'm in love with the proportions and the structures of each piece.

Silence!

DUCHAMP LONDON AW12

October 09, 2012

Have you heard about Duchamp London? Well, let me tell you a bit about it. Duchamp is a luxury menswear brand based in the UK. Their clothes are so beautiful and well made. They put a lot of focus on luxury fabrics, hand finished detailing and vibrant colors.

And I love this season's campaign, it's so refreshing. I love the simplicity and cleanness of these photographs. Matthew Zorpas is the face of their new AW12 knitwear campaign, which was shot by Jonathan Daniel Pryce, a very talented photographer. You can find these Duchamp London knits online or in-store at Westfield White City and the Jermyn Street Store, in London.

VALENTINO FW12

September 29, 2012


I really like these photos of Benjamin Eidem by Pablo Arroyo for the new Valentino campaign. And I absolutely adore that tailored silhoutte that Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pier Paolo Piccioli created for this season.

These black and white photos feel so cold and dramatic, that's exactly the way I like campaigns!

Weekend Diaries IX: First days of fall


Hey guys! I've had a hell of a week. My blog is not being updated that much because of school :( can you believe that?

Layers?

September 25, 2012

Outfit inspired by Acne Fall 2012

Fall is finally here! That means is time to wear layers!! For this season, they're something basic. Everybody wears at least 3 layers of clothes. It looks so cool, but there's a problem: I live on an island in the middle of the Caribbean.

MR PORTER AW 12

September 18, 2012

I'm so in love with Mr Porter's new advertising campaign for this season. It's just so refreshing, I really like what Tom Craig has captured here. This campaign is called 'Style Wherever You Are'  and it was shot in different locations.

I love the campaign's concept, when I first looked at it, I was very surprised. I mean, their campaigns are always really cool. But I think this is one of the bests.

I don't care!!

WARNING: This is a late night post, so please don't take it very seriously.

New York Spring 2013 favourites

September 14, 2012

I've been so busy! This has been officialy the most stressful week I ever had. I mean, I've had tons of homeworks and like 10 exams (I know, craaaazy!!). But that didn't stop me when it was about watching the New York collections for Spring 2013.

What I love about New York collections is that they're always kind of fresh.

I love the way the aesthetics are really different from Paris or Milan, they're like more relaxed. I have to say, it was a little difficult to me to choose my favourites this time.

I loved those stripes from Tommy Hilfiger and the way the collection was kind of preppy. The thing I loved about J.Crew was the explosion of colors, it was so cool. And the suits looked very nice.
And what about J.Lindeberg? Well, I really liked that presentation they did in New York Fashion Week. I think they were amazing clothes, I loved the blue palette and the biker jackets were amazing!!

What about you? Do you have any favourites from the New York Collections?

Tommy Hilfiger
J.Crew

My daily essentials #3: Sketchbook

September 10, 2012


There's something I can't definitely go a day without it, and that's my sketchbook.

His name's Juan

September 07, 2012



This is my friend Juan. I don't know why I'm taking so many photos of my friends lately, it feels weird. I think I told you about this a while ago. I used to be in Kindergarden with him and since then I never got to see him. He contacted me a few months ago and said that he wanted some photographs, so I said yes!

This shoot was kind of a nightmare, but at the same time it was fun. It was the middle of summer (still) and he had to wear these clothes, so I believe it was a nightmare for him too. 

Well, that's everything I have to say. Hope you like the photos!

Weekend Diaries VIII: Liz

September 02, 2012


This is my friend Liz. We hanged out a bit this weekend. She's such a beautiful person, both, inside and out. The only bad thing is that she only comes for the weekends, because she lives really far from the city. But it's so good to talk with her, she's a bit shy but we talk about everything. I hope she comes again next weekend, that way I can take more photos of her!

Sunglasses day

August 31, 2012

Sunglasses inspired by Warby Parker, shirt by Carven

I think I'm writing a lot about eyewear lately. Well, today we're having a 'sunglasses day' at my school. We're all supposed to wear sunglasses, and I find it a bit strange, what do you think about that? Have you ever had a sunglasses day at your school or something?

My daily essentials #2: Eyeglasses

August 30, 2012


Hello guys! I started school last week, which means I'm super busy.

Now I have essays, homeworks and loads of readings to do. But oh, it's finally my senior year (yeaaaahh) that's one of the reasons because I can't complain, because I'll be done with school!

Dior Homme FW12

August 26, 2012



Some images of the Dior Homme Fall/Winter 2012 lookbook by Willy Vanderperre (seems like I can't get enough of his work). The lookbook features Janis Ancens and Victor Nylander, it was shot in Wall Street District. I'm totally loving the dark and mysterious mood, the way Kris Van Assche always manages to design well-tailored silhouettes and the super cool look of the trenchcoats.

Here's a preview of what I'll be wearing this fall.

COS FW12

August 19, 2012

This is a sneak peek for COS Fall/Winter 2012 Campaign. I love the way Chris Beek gave this photos such a dramatic look. And the way Willy Vanderperre worked for this campaign, he captured such a strong mood and a nice essence for Fall. Another thing I really like, is how the clothes match with the color of the architecture, it's genius!

This fall collection looks so good and sharp (as always). I love how they're always trying to keep it minimalistic and simple. You can take a look at the entire collection here.

ZARA AW12

August 17, 2012

I don't really blog about womenswear, but this is an exception. I've always liked Zara's campaigns, especially this one. I love the mood, the music, and of course, Freja. I'm so glad she's back and I feel so happy to see her as the face of the video. I love her expression and her rebel style, I think it suits her perfectly! Another thing I love about this video, it's the kind of cinematic vibe it has, it looks like one of Sofia Coppola's film (don't you think?). My favorite part is when she's driving the car, I don't know why, but I just love it! Here's the video:

Weekend Diaries VII: Marymar

August 12, 2012


Yesterday, I met this girl after the photoshoot. Her name is Marymar and she's got a really beautiful smile. She's very easygoing, we talked for a while about almost everything. I get happy when I meet someone so warm and special like her.

Weekend Diaries VI

August 11, 2012



I took this photo, during a photoshoot this morning. The sweater belongs to my friend Juan. He's got a really good taste on things like that. Even though, you can't really appreciate the details of the sweater, I love the way this photograph came out!

Hello!

Inspired IX

August 01, 2012

Hello, I'm glad you're reading this post. I'm just trying to do what I said on my other post. So yeah, that means I'm currently sitting in my desk.

This is what's inspiring me at the moment, this is my moodboard for August. These photos have caught my attention for the past two weeks. And as you know, we were talking about the way my photos are starting to look a little bit like film, remember? Ahh, I just love the way film looks, it's very nostalgic and full of color. It also takes me back to my earlier summer days; when I was a kid and we used to have slr film cameras and take random photographs.

Well; when I found these photos, I inmediatly remembered those moments. So I wanted to share them with you, they're very beautiful.
