It is Monday, week 40 and the fall has finally arrived, and is here to stay. With red toned tree tops and chilly weather we just want to cosy up in big jumpers, drinking hot beverages while, of course?!, reading fashion biographies. This GS EDIT, the second one, is all about the latest fall trends and how to survive the cold weather, still looking super chic. Let’s get into it!


Current Obsession

Our number one current obsession is the Saint Laurent SS17 catwalk collection. One word: WOW! Even though we are all about fall at the moment, we can not wait for this collection to drop. The catwalk show was a perfect mix of casual styles with jeans and soft velvet + leather tops and glamorous gowns styled with statement earrings. Which by the way are TO-DIE-FOR! And can we talk about the heels? For this season the brand showed heels with the iconic YSL logotype. If you scroll down you will find them under “Details that matter”, which you do not want to miss!


Things we LOVE

At the moment we are all about everything that fall has to offer us. We want to embrace the season of tea drinking, colourful photos, turtlenecks and acoustic music! To get all the inspiration it is time to pimp up your Instagram feed with FALL. By following these cosy inspiration accounts you will for sure have a feed full of bright colours and falling leaves…

Latest Fashion Update

One of this season’s great trends is VELVET. First we saw it on the catwalk at Prada, Vetements, Valentino and many more, then it totally exploded on social media and spread to the streets. Making velvet look casual is not easy but looks gorgeous if successful. You may not dare to go full suited but why not try wearing a velvet choker or another accessory? For example would a velvet bag, in some fall colour, really make your outfit on point and fashion forward!


Details that matter

Fun heels, the perfect way to spice up any outfit. For this season shoes with sculptured heels was seen in every other collection. Designers who loves the trend are Miu Miu, Dolce and Gabbana, Dries van Noten and Marni. + the trend seems to continue this spring as Saint Laurent (SS17) showed these logotype heels, which we are in LOVE with.


Places to visit

Granger and co – A London favourite! Visit this lovely restaurant in Notting Hill (or King’s cross, Clerkenwell) for the BEST breakfast in town. If you go there you must try the honeycomb pancakes, which are insanely delicious! But they also serve other sweet dishes as acai bowl, chia pudding, avocado toast and the classic scramble eggs, for example.

People of importance

Bella Hadid is the Fashion Industry’s rising star. Lately we have REALLY seen her everywhere. Not only doing iconic shoots as the towel series by Mario Testino, but also walking down the runway. Bella opened for Alberta Ferretti, Versus Versace and Fendi, just to mention a few of the designers the IT-girl walked for this season. The question is: What’s her next move? I guess we’ll soon see!
