Summer, Love & It- stripes

First spotted on the backs of sailors in nineteenth-century France, the nautical stripe has evolved from military garb to stylish staple in little more than a century. Since then, the so-named nautical stripe has exhibited some survival skills of its own. Its simple design has a beauty and a utility that make it the perfect contrast to more luxe statements—next to bolder hues and jewelry, the stripe is practically spare.

The nautical stripe has become synonymous with legends as diverse as Pablo Picasso and Brigitte Bardot. Black-and-white photos of Beat poets and Left Bank starlets imbue the striped shirt with chic insouciance, and, of course, its ubiquity on yacht decks connotes jet-set glamour. But it is not just the province of the globetrotting avant-garde. Emblazoned on swimwear, handbags and, as always, the simple cotton tee, the nautical stripe evokes a sporty, all-American elegance that works year-round, at sea or on land on the French Riviera to the Hamptons. It is a testament to the nautical stripe’s enduring appeal that season after season it reappears as bright as ever, making it a true Classic. Mix it up with any bold colourful jewelry to make this summer’s must have stripe your own.

In love with green

It’s all about green this season and not only the ever trendy olive or military green, but ranging from earthy and more woody muted tones to more fresh and intense apple greens. We simply love the versatility this colour brings to any outfit. Combined with luxe materials for a festive evening look or just as an accessory for a relaxed day street style – this is the it-colour of this season!

Chella Fabulousness

It’s an early start to the festival season each year thanks to Coachella in the vast Colorado Desert, Indio, California.  While the other festivals’ field fun won’t kick off properly until June, the US gets us longing for summer now.

Coachella is arguably the most fashionable festival attracting celebrities and common folk alike with its variety-filled line-up, art exhibits and stylish reputation.

As the year’s first big festival, Coachella is where to spot the trends that will dominate not only the festivals this summer, but also the streets. Individuals from all over the world doing their most coveted pieces for the elaborate photo ops.

Evoke your free spirit and get inspired to easy summer styling!

Hello Spring

It seems that — fingers crossed — here in Hamburg the cold months (and their layers and layers of anything warm, oversized and yet stylish) are finally behind us. The good news: Sun is out and Spring is here! The bad: It’s not going to wait for you to slowly transition your wardrobe — or your waistline.

Reality is that the transition of seasons is a slow process that takes easing into and the secret to a smart transition (except for a proper work-out or a spring detox to lose those extra winter kilos) is the colour coding, so say hello to a brighter spring palette and to relaxed figure-flattering wardrobe essentials such as: colourful, crazy comfy and must-have sneakers, t-shirts topped with fabulous at any time scarves and leather jackets, denim in all shapes and forms all teamed up with latest hype of smaller cross body bags for the ultimate relaxed spring outfit! Don’t forget the latest fashion accessory – well manicured and colourful nails inspired my the Garden of Eden and smashing jewelry!

Choose your favourite flattering mix and get ready for spring!
