Another good looking pre-fall 2011 collection. The super 70's look is clear and also the minimalistic touch. Go A-lines, go flared pants and go natural waistline!

The creativity shouldn't stop during Christmas and since I am the "architect" for the yearly gingerbread Christmas house I have looked at different inspirations. The last years it has been the Bengtskär's lighthouse, Alvar Aalto house and a log home. I thought about going higher this year; some of these?

The perfect home. At the moment it is all about qualities and contrast in your home. Velvet, fur and leather together with metal, paper and wood. These fantastic pictures are taken from  the website;

No doubt that Diane von Furstenberg's pre-fall 2011 collection is the best so far! Get inspired by the colour combinations - the perfect variety of shades and the minimalistic twist. I love it!

For example, Yves Saint Laurent’s role as an influential proponent of trousers for women is exemplified by a navy blue woman’s pantsuit from 1967. It is shown alongside a man’s suit in dark blue velvet, also by Saint Laurent. "

"The Japanese "fashion revolution" of the 1980s dramatically transformed the world of fashion.  Avant-garde Japanese designers such as Issey Miyake, Yohji Yamamoto, and Rei Kawakubo of Comme des Garçons introduced a radically new conception of fashion to the catwalks of Paris. Utilizing innovative textile technologies, together with aspects of traditional Japanese clothing culture, these designers were instrumental in creating a new relationship between body and clothes, a new attitude toward the beauty of imperfection, and a new appreciation of avant-garde fashion as "art.""

Nathalie Fordeyn experimented with shape and proportion to striking effect in her MA knitwear collection, Royal Academy of Fine Arts. I find the diversity of her silhouettes - from voluminous forms to bubble hem - as well as the playful felted hats and sophisticated colour palette very interesting.
