How about those jewelry pieces on her hands (last pic). I WANT THIS GOLD THING.

Miuccia WAS RIGHT!

Apparently, we do need a spacious coat, a fur add-on and gloves for this year’s Spring.
I, per se, do need those dusty rose gloves for whatever season they are made for.

Weather joke aside – though there is all-knowing sadly truth about aforementioned – I LOVE THIS Miu Miu collection. The best one of all Miu Miu collections (in my humble opinion) and one of my special favorites of all SS 13 collections with the remarkable ad campaign (remember?)

See some more of this elegant, seductive, yet über-cool heroine.

And on a fur note. Yes, I would love, looove to have that one to wrap myself in it. I don’t possess the info whether it’s faux fur. Excuse me PETA people, but I want it, anyway.

SS 2013 Ad Campaigns

Here they are and February issues of magazines will be filled with them. Most of these have been online for a while but they keep on coming. I’ve already seen over 360 photos.

Take a look who survived through my not-so-easy-to-please eyes so far.

My Absolute Favorite

Miu Miu
What photography, colors, scene settings, captures. Beautiful! One of Miu Miu’s best ever. I’m digging the clothes too.

and some other ads that I like, in no particular order:

but favorite brands first : ). Always lovely. Cool romantics.


Great photography and model selection. Super like.
(And that bag and the top in the middle)


Reed Krakoff
Love it. Love the art direction – stylish, chic, luxe-feel, yet not pertinacious.


Piece d’Anarchive
starring arizona Muse. Love it. Unexpected, simple yet great.

more black and white.

(oh, those sunnies)


Saint Laurent
Hedi Slimane photo-magic.


Loius Vuitton
Checked. Like the ads, learning to like this collection.


Finally something from Gucci ads that I like. Starring Anja Rubik and Carmen Pedaru and that fine towards-violet-blue color.


I love this particular ad from Prada. Other ads are perfect as well but I kind of have a problem with some of the clothes – you know, sock-shoe moment.

Romantic, but with an attitude, at first look a bit modest with color reduction but they’ve got the power. Like it.


Max Mara Studio
lovely 60s vibe.


And still not sure about this one

Proenza Schouler
New thing – yes. Different – yes. Do I like it – not sure. I like it for an editorial (i.e. Dazed and Confused) but I’m not sure it’s right for the campaign. I don’t like the hair on any of the campaign ads and on this you can barely see the clothes. So no, methinks.
