LOOK | SILHOUETTE

Ph. by Maximilian P.
New season; new silhouette. A new season is all about experimenting with new silhouettes, patterns, colors and materials. We watch the designers during the fashion weeks to see what they came up with for this season. I also love to do that. Trying new things, interpreting what I see on the catwalks and adding my own ideas, my own twist to looks. Aren't we all Always looking for new ways to create that even better look for ourselves?

On the other hand (how beautiful a contradiction is..), there are always timeless pieces..those looks that never lose their strength. In this post I want to share on with you: the simple black and timeless look. Good for every occassion and styled with one of my favourite all time pieces: the peplum skirt. I am also extremely happy to wear my second piece of Louboutin here on the blog. The heel is a perfect mix of golden glitters and black suede with a hot red sole. On top of this classic look I added a bold and golden piece from Chopard, which suprisingly turned out to be a good match with the golden doorhandles on the huge door you see in the pictures (thanks to Maximilian P.) The photos are shot in Mdina at the Mediterrean island Malta, one of my favourite places for a quick get-away. We had a great day of shooting in this quiet little old town, while the late September sun was shining bright and the temperature was still 30 degrees centegrade with hardly any wind. It made me feel lazy and comfy and after the shoot at the table of a lovely small and typical Maltese restaurant in Valletta, I kept on dreaming of the old people in the small streets and how  it would be to live a quiet live without rushing and stressing, enjoying the sun, the food and the clear blue sea.

LOOK | MODERN MUSE

 Ph. by Maximilian P.
 
From Rome to Hamburg! This time I'm writing from my cozy hotel room in Hamburg. The city is very modern and one of the biggest metropoles in Germany. So a girl needs a compliant outfit for a visit. Did you know that Hamburg is the second largest city in Germany? It has everything. Shops from high end (Neuer Wall) to normal and low budget (Monckebergstrasse), good food (especially the German sweets are amazing), both classic cultural and modern flashy architecture and a vibrant city life. The small lake called Alstermeer in the middle of the city centre gives the city something edgy and fresh and if you want night life you can go wild in St Pauli. Hamburg is full of modern trends which are worth following and enjoying.
 
Talking about modern trends; a massive one of the past year is definitely the sneaker. Nowadays it's trendy to wear it under a dress, skirt or other girly outfit, instead of just with jeans. And although I'm more a heel person, I really love it. So this is one of the first times that I wear sneakers at this blog. And not just regular sneakers, the Isabel Marant ofcourse. I found them in a concept store in Rome and couldn't be more happy. They are so comfortable and perfect for a day in the city. Another souvenir from Rome is this gorgeous orange leather bag that I got from Fabi, the brand we were shooting for in Rome. It's the perfect eyecather to spice up your Fall look and big enough to bring all my daily stuff. Another modern item, that I'm totally in love with is this blazer from Supertrash. I'm a big fan of the brand since the beginning, but this is my ultimate favourite. This blazer is so versatile, because you can wear it as a little black dress and the big golden details finish it. So this post is actually about all my new  favourites items in my wardrobe for now and Fall of course. I hope you like them too!

LOOK | ITALIAN GET AWAY

Ph. by Maximilian P.

In my last two posts you could see what I was doing in Rome for Fabi. But between shooting with that fabulous brand and a little sightseeing, there was also time to make this editorial post with my own team. And what better place is there to shoot the Italian way? In these small streets, immense old buildings, the ruins, the hectic busyness of the Italians and the warm late summer sun I felt totally at home. But I told you that before, sorry, but I can't stop writing about it. We just had a great time. We stayed at the Waldorf Astoria, which is on a mountaintop overlooking the city. The view is the best especially at night in the famous restaurant La Pergola, that is considered one of the best restaurants in Rome. The Waldorf Astoria has everything and it was a great hideaway. Especially the botanic garden and the pool area were quiet and make you calm. I can recommend it to anyone of you.

Louboutin

I am wearing my first pair of Louboutins in this post. I am very excited about showing you these classic ones. I already had the clutch with spikes of Louboutin, which I showed you in a couple of other posts on Lararosestyle.com and it was time for matching shoes now (although it was a big investment for me). Louboutin is well known for its red soles and that is why I chose for matching typical red accents in my outfit. What do you guys think of Louboutin? Just let me know whether you like it as much as I do.

LOOK | CLASSIC BLACK & WHITE

Ph. by Maximilian P.

Today a short impression of the shoot I did in the current Summer collection of Fabi. In the previous post I already told you about the story behind this great Italian brand.
 
It was a great day shooting with the Fabi team in the inner city of Rome. Rome is such a romantic destination with all kinds of old Streets and hidden corners, I really love this city. When you go there with the one you love, I promise you that you will have the best time in your live. Rome is lively, loud, busy, but the atmosphere: mamma mia, this city combines antique and contemporary in a wonderful way and it is just made for lovers. Take a little time to find the not-too-touristic restaurants and you will be dazzled by the best Italian food and the most romantic hide-away terraces. And fashion! Believe, Rome has it all. There's really not a major brand that I haven't seen in this city in the few days that I was there. Top this off with the quiet parks you can walk in, the wonderful warm weather and you understand that Rome is definitely one of my favorite cities.
 
So, it was very nice to shoot in the city centre in a great Fabi outfit and feeling a bit 'Italian' myself. I am wearing a classic black and white outfit in the pictures. A contrast dress with a low back and long sleeves, a city leather bag, a silver cuff with Fabi initials and heels in the same tone with straps. A perfect outfit if you ask me for a day of shopping or meetings in a dream city like Rome.

TRAVEL | IN ROME WITH FABI

 Ph. by Maximilian P.

Last week I was in Rome for a project with the Italian brand Fabi. I was invited to see and experience the brand and to show pieces of their current collection, which will be also revealed in the next post. Recently they opened a new boutique of 700 squared meters in Rome dedicated to the maison of Fabi, including a courtyard garden and a lounge, where we shot these pictures. The store is amazing. It has depth and hidden corners, is several stories high and gives a new meaning to the word variety with many different 'theme rooms'. The managers and sales advisors are very friendly and make you feel at home. You can have coffee, tea or other drinks in the lounge which is very clean with that typical Italian vibe. The collection is set out in a gracious way, with attention to small details like matching colors, lights and pictures on the wall.

But Fabi is more than well designed conceptstores. The brand is established in 1965 by the family Fabi and focusses on handmade Italian shoes and bags, made from the best premium Italian leather. The whole process from design to concept and sales, take place in Monte San Giusto, Italy. Fabi has developed through the years into a worldwide brand with collections for woman and men, with stores in Beijing, Shanghai, Moskow, Monte Carlo, Dubai and Milano.

I'm wearing a strapless maxi dress with a high split and detailed flowers. Fabi is known for its amazing shoes and bags, so it wasn't hard for me at all to find a great and matching combination of a girl's beloved leatherwear with the dress and ended up with strappy and classis heels and a clutch of patent leather with diamonds. All in all a great outfit for a gala or chique party. Thank you Fabi, I felt like a little princess while we were taking the pictures.
