The cropped cut


bruno pieters x weekday knit
weekday coat
vintage belt

If you have been looking closely, you might have noticed me wearing pieces from the bruno pieters collaboration with weekday quite frequently. One of those rare high-street collaborations that just work. Simple garments with extraordinary cuts and details, sometimes it's about stripping it down rather than the opposite. Speaking of which, what were your thoughts on the versace x hm collection? I have to say it was a little bit too much for me... but I did however like the oriental flower print, and some of the stuff from the men's collection, I'll try to post some of my closet newbies over the next few days.

Anyway back to the knit.. I have been wearing variations of the crop top with high-waisted jeans more that I've had time to photograph. Last few weeks I have been especially fond of the combo paired with this beautiful pastel kimono to break up the black every once in a while... maybe the light blue does not have to be as seasonal as I originally thought.

I personally wasn't a huge fan of the Versace + H&M collaboration. Maybe sense it was overly hyped about it didn't appeal to me as much. But anyways, I adore your Kimino & I swear your hair is perfection.

Love the Kimono! I'm not too excited about the Versace for HM collection but did love some of the mens stuff. I love your cropped knit also!

I totally agree with you about the Versace for HM collection I am a bit of a minimalist so some of the designs are a bit over the top for my taste.

Monica said...

I'm obsessed with kimonos right now! I think that beautiful blue is great with the all black. The perfect way to brighten up the winter blues.

Agreed, I think the Versace collection was great with some amazing prints but some pieces were very in-your-face.
I love your outfit too, turquoise is so refreshing.

Definitely not a fan of Versace collaboration, especially after some comments miss Donatella has given afterwards. Enjoyed their leather pieces, but as I am on a tight budget, couldn't buy them even if I wanted to.

Back to your outfit: it looks really great, I like that kimono very, very much :) have a great weekend! xoxo

Vicki said...

I'm not a fan of the versace x H&M collection too...

Go with the white pair. There's something futuristic about them.
