proenza schouler woven sandal. amazing. these would totally make the spring come early for my wardrobe that's definately lacking some yellow. think these matched with a smart black trouser suit or fresh light blue needle jeans cut just above the ankle - i'm going breathless.

on collar

now here's a trend alert continuing with the suit theme - focus on collar. i think i've seen the same thing in all men's shows, can't wait to see womens lines. change of texture, color, material or all of them at once. i remember seeing a light beige blazer with white collars which looked amazing, just couldn't find the picture anymore again. please let me know if you know the blazer i'm talking about.

1 kate lanphear rocking shiny collars on matte. i love the combination of the smart jacket, ripped shirt and a silver armor-like jewellery. 2 black on black at lanvin ss 2010 + beautiful match of warm beige and black chloë (l'officiel) 3 light browns get a twist of cream + d&g fw 2010 wool jacket sharped with sheer black collar

some finnish news - and i'm talking about GOOD NEWS.

1 nomad shop. i have no idea what brands is the store opening in helsinki feb '10 going to sell. i'm almost certain by the look of their site that it's going to be good. helsinki welcomes you.

2 love contemporary magazine. a newest child of paola suhonen (designer of ivana helsinki) is a magazine. teaming with the design duo ahonen&lamberg the outcome already sounds interesting. the themes behind the magazine doesn't sound bad either: 'new movement back to pure love, with a modern edge'. modern hippie-ism is all we need.

thanks kim for indirect hints

irina shaposnikova : crystallographica

irina shaposnikova's graduate collection at the antwerp royal academy of fine arts 09 show. how many things a year old look this fresh?! there's a resemblance to gareth pugh there - think fw2008 triangular print, the sci fi elements of ss2009 + christopher kane 3D organzas on ss2009. anyhow irina's a name to keep in mind.

acne A1 clutch. this is what i love about fashion, just when you feel like everything's starting to feel a bit boring (especially in between seasons) you find something amazing that makes it all clear again. look at this craftmanship and understanding of detail and simplicity, amazing.
