Mario Testino for MATE

Now this is the OMG! Mario Testino is one of my most inspiring artists. I adore his work and I admire his personality. Such a creative, amazing person. I recently had the pleasure to enjoy his panel at the Vogue Festival, and safe to say I learnt… a lot!

So obviously I was super excited about his collaboration with (or more likely for) net-a-porter.com. And I must say I am delighted with what I see. Literally, I have no words for all the designs, colours, fabrics! I must love (and buy) them all!!!!

The whole collection was inspired by the vibrant costumes and artisan craftwork captured in his iconic Alta Moda pictures. Trust me, worth google these images, if you haven’t seen them so far!

Not to mention that a percentage of each sale will be donated to the Testino’s Lima-based charity, MATE. Genius man! 

My personal favs below, but I am always interested in your thoughts, so comment here or on my Facebook page!

Rihanna for River Island

Fun facts about E:

I like Rihanna…

But this is just rubbish, and this is the second attempt now.

After the ever so anticipated, but not exactly ground breaking first part, the second aka summer collection stayed under the bar too.

I probably have never seen so many ugly and boring clothes under one roof.

This collection is dull, and I would certainly not pay a single penny for it. Saying that being a proper shopaholic/collector, which means that I do buy all the “special editions” purely for the joy of owning it, but this is just not working.

Well, see for yourself, but these pieces will  certainly be missing from my wardrobe, and I kinda am proud of myself for this!

Love,

E xx
