I love summer and I love white, and these two go so very well together. A casual white shirt paired with denim, or a simple white dress, is the perfect summer outfit. And with a splash of white in your interior you are not only adding light to your home but it also give a crisp and clean look. Today’s post is my ‘ode’ to white and to summer. Enjoy!

FRIDAY’S FASHION FILES: MOTHER AND CHILD COLLECTION

elisa-1

Chic Italian-Egyptian, mother, model and actress Elisa Sednaoui has designed a mother-and-child collection called ‘Little-a-Like’. This collection, which is exclusively created for Yoox, features lovely pieces for boys, girls, babies and mothers. Inspiration was drawn from the beautiful textile traditions of Egypt. All of the profits goes to the Elisa Sednaoui Foundation, a charity which helps children and young people in Egypt and Italy. “The main inspiration for patterns and embroidery are the ones from the Egyptian Bedouin tradition,” says the London-based Sednaoui whose son Jack is about to turn one. “As for the women’s and girls’ pieces, I thought about those which to me are the classic indispensable summer shapes: the long dress, the long-sleeved tunic, and the striped light dress to wear at the beach. For babies I thought of what my son had worn the most last summer, like T-shirts and light-weight shirts with his nappy.”

FLY VIOLET: MY NEW FAVORITE BAG

omybag-4

The Fly Violet from Dutch bag label O My Bag is my new favorite bag! Apparently I am not the only one loving this bag as every time when I’m carrying this bag at least one person comes up to me asking me where I got it from. Fly Violet is a sophisticated, multi-function satchel – an elegant work bag large enough to fit your laptop, which can be transformed into a statement bag by adding a chain. And good to know: all bags are made from a unique kind of eco-leather and created with love in the safe and positive atmosphere of Fair Trade, where fair wages and benefits are paid, women are empowered and training and education is offered.
