Katja Hentschel

I recently came across a fashion shoot by the London/berlin-based photographer Katja Hentschel and now I'm stuck. Love it! Also check out her blog Glamcanyon.

Red Statements

Choice of Red

I am delighted that my favourite colour red will adorn us all during Fall/Winter 2010. As I mentioned before, my favourite piece of clothing in red this fall is without competition Isabel Marant’s leather pants. However, these are the other pieces I would choose to add to my wardrobe.

Clockwise from left:

These übercool fingerless gloves by Vivienne Westwood would glam up any type of autumn outfit according to me. I love the details with the chain and the charm on the back.

We’ve seen variations of this Alexander McQueen clutch bags all over town a number of times, but I am still not sick and tired of it and I adore this red version.

My lips will be statement red with the help of Candyfuture Opaque Lipstick by Retrofuturist and could be combined with these rectangular sunglasses by Arnette Agent. Never mind their plastic look, it just adds a twist to the whole outfit.

I love my statement boots and therefore I cannot resist these leather patent ankle boots by Versace.

Up until now I haven’t really understood the new relieved hype around Diane von Furstenberg. However, when trying out her new Fall/Winter collection I realised that the simplicity in the dresses and the way they fall on the body is too flattering for any woman’s body to be able to resist.

Ann Demeulemeester has always been a favourite of mine and I always found something to die for in all her collections. This is a perfect dress for a night out during this autumn. Or if going for trousers instead, this one-shoulder silk blouse by Halston Heritage is just as perfect for the event.

Finally found what I was looking for

I've been searching for this belt for ages, ever since I first noticed it in a Gucci advert. I love the big metal bar in front, which makes it suitable both with jeans, a skirt or with a winter coat. However, none of the Gucci boutiques in Hong Kong had it. I've now finally found it at Saks and thinking about whether I will order it or buy it when I go to NYC in October. But I am really worried that it will already have sold out by then. Hmmm...

Leopard for Fall/Winter 2010

I really love the fact that leopard prints will stay on for another season. These are my choices from head to toe for Fall/Winter 2010 – but I would obviously not wear them all on the same time.

On a bad-hair-day I would prefer to cover up with this beautiful print bowler hat by Anthony Peto, which you can find at Browns.

Moving on I would dress for cold weather in this leopard print cropped coat by Love Moschino.

Around my neck, I would not say no to this silk leopard print scarf by Yves Saint Laurent.

Jimmy Choo Bree Large calf hair bag doesn’t look that good on this particular photo, but looks absolutely fab IRL. I would definitely combine this with Jimmy Choo Ubai leopard-print leather wallet.

During daytime I would cover up my feet in Giuseppe Zanotti printed leopard low boot wedges and at night time when going out with the girls I would change into these leopard-print platform bootie by Miu Miu.

The Queen and I

Just like one of my favourite bloggers, Hanh, I also collect Alexander McQueen pieces. This amazing scarf with a lip-pattern is the next thing going into my collection.

A Second Skin

Except for the übercool red leather pants by Isabel Marant that I showed you earlier, I definitely think it is worth investing in a pair of black leather pants this fall which goes with everything and can be used both during daytime (with a simple, white shirt) or in the evening with the right top and ankle boots. My choice goes to one of these; Leather suede-panelled motocross pants by Versace, Helmut Lang leather and stretch-jersey leggings or Leather and stretch-jersey leggings by Rick Owens. Photos from

The It coat

The only boring thing with Hong Kong is the almost nonexistent changes of seasons. We never get a proper winter and therefore you don’t really get to use a winter coat. Don’t get me wrong, I love the sun and the heat which is one of the main reasons I moved here to get away from the horrible Swedish winters. However, I miss wearing my coats. Since I will be travelling a lot this autumn and winter (trips to New York, London, Shanghai and Paris are already booked) I might anyway invest in this wonderful coat from Max Mara, since I will need it. Or what do you think?

Halston 2010

Is Halston back? I mean ‘back’ for real, as in “yes, I would wear it”-kind of way. After spotting this Halston-model at New York fashion week I would agree that the design – which was a popular fashion wear in mid-1970s discotheques as well as very influential in airline uniform designs – is back for real.


These beauties are out on Ebay right now. Unfortunately they are the wrong size for me, otherwise I would have put in a bid straight away. I love the combination of colours and the "office"-look.
