Golden Needle: Kuldnõel 2014

The first day of Tallinn Fashion Week ended with the Golden Needle gala-show. It truly was the highlight of the evening. The previous shows, not that much. Somehow there was something in the air. I could almost feel the hard work, tears and sleepless nights the nominees have seen, in the air. 

Some comments about my personal favourites:

Marit Ilison fascinates with simplicity and great ideas. You do not have to invent a bicycle to be genious. Coats made of old blankets have never looked so good.

Lilli Jahilo knows what is elegance. It all seems very simple, but there's a lot of details. The entire collection  really touched my heart. Everything was so pure, feminine and fragile. 

Probably I do not have to indroduce you Kriss Soonik, the creator of loungerie. She really brought amazing contrast to the event. It was fun, quirky and fresh. I love her designs and everything she does. Also, she was rewarded with the Golden Needle.
 I just have to mention, soundtrack of her show was 50cent - In da club(remix).  Go Charlie, it's your birthday!

Esimene Tallinn Fashion Week'i päev on läbi ning emotsioonid on head. Enim nautisin loomulikult Kuldnõel 2014 gaalat, kuid eelnevaid kollektsioone mitte just eriti(ühe erandiga küll #jonurm). Gaala ajal oli õhus tunda lausa disainerite pisaraid, rasket tööd ning magamata öid. Armastust oma töö vastu.

Lühidalt ka minu lemmikutest

Marit Ilison on ehe näide sellest kuulsast ütlusest, et pole vaja jalgratast leiutada. Geniaalne saab olla väga lihtsate vahenditega. Vanad nõukogude tekid pole iial nii head välja näinud. Muideks, ennemuiste oli  kodus endal see roheline ;).

Lilli Jahilo teab, mida ta teeb. Ta teab mis on elegants. Kõik tundus väga lihtne, kuid seal oli peidus hulgaliselt detaile. Terve kollektsioon tõesti puudutas mind, kananahk tekkis. Kõik oli nii puhas, naiselik ja õrn. Oeh. Tõeline muinasjutt.

Ilmselt ei vaja Kriss Soonik kellegile tutvustamist. Temanimeline bränd loob maailmas suuri laksuvaid laineid. Tihtipeale võime tema disainitud pesu leida Elle, Vogue või Harper's Bazaari moelehtedelt. Ühtlasi on ta ka loonud termini loungerie.
Kogu tema esitlus mõjus värsket ning lustakalt. Ma armastan tema pesu ja kõike mida ta teeb. Teda pärjati ka aasta parima moedisaineri auhinnaga ehk Kuldnõelaga. Ma katsun täna enda Krissi pesu välja otsida ning seda natuke eksponeerida mõne läbipaistva pluusikese näol.
Mainimata ei saa ka jätta, et show taustamuusika oli 50cent - In da club remiks. Ja kui äge see siis oli. Go Charlie, it's your birthday!

New in: shoes and magazines

When I was visiting Warsaw, Poland back in April this year, I fell in love with the local fashion-design-music-art magazine KMAG. Although, I can't read polish, happily some sections happen to be in english. They have very inspirational editorials and the coolest covers ever.

Since we have horrible winter coming up with -30 degrees accompanied by storms and snow, I decided to buy myself these patent slip-on shoes from Zara. I just couldn't leave them in the store.

___________ Kui külastasin tänavu aprillis esimest korda Varssavit, siis ikka uudistasin ajalehe leti juures. Lootuses, et leian mingi ägeda kohaliku ajakirja. Loomulikult oli valik suur, lai ja väga värviline, kus domineeris kollane ajakirjandus ning pulmateema. Õnnekombel sattusin KMAGi otsa mis on äge, stiilne ning nautida saab peamiselt moodi-kunsti-muusikat -disaini. Mainimata ei saa ka jätta, et neil on alati väga tasemel kaanefotod.  Väga tore, et mõned lõigud on neil tõlgitud ka inglise keelde.

Kuigi ees on ootamas üks mu vihatumaid aastaaegu - talv, siis otsustasin, et mul on siiski vaja neid lakknahast kingakesi Zarast.  Liiga ilusad, et neid poodi jätta. Vahet pole, et tegelikult oleks vaja silm lahti hoida saabastele.

Love at second sight: Alexander Wang & H&M

Most of my favourite blogs are full of this amazing collaboration, but it's never too late.

When I first heard about the news, I could not wait to see those first ''secret pictures'' of the collection. Wang has always been full of surprises and his work is modern and you just can't get bored. 

When I saw the first campaign photos, I was little confused. Thinking how I'm going to mix-match these items with my style. Seemed impossible. Big logos were a bit scary. But if the whole collection and the product photos were open to the public. I was sold! Those mesh sweaters and bikinis!

Suurem osa mu lemmikud blogisid juba on jõudnud jagada armastust selle imelise koostöö kohta,  kuid kunagi pole liiga hilja.

Kui kuulsin et Alexander Wang ja H&M teevad koostööd, ei jõudnud ma ära oodata ,et saaks juba neid esimesi ''salapilte'' näha Interneti avarustes. Wang on alati olnud täis üllatusi ning iga tema loodud kollektsioon mõjub värskelt ning uudselt.  Tema järgi võiks lausa panna võrdusmärgi sporty chic.

Nähes esimesi kampaaniafotosid, olin natuke segaduses. Mõtlesin, et kuidas ma neid esemeid küll enda stiiliga sobitaks. Tundus võimatu. Suured logod on päris hirmuäratavad.  Aga kui sai näha tervet kollektsiooni tootefotode näol, I was sold! Need pusad, mesh pluusid ja bikiinid - need on ju kõige ideaalsemad üldse.
Those bikinis!


Pretty autumn: Sunday funday

Sundays must be my favourite day of the week. You have no responsibilities and you can do what you want. You get up at noon, go to the movies, museum, have sushi or some junk food and  lay in the bed for the whole day. This time was no different.

Pictures taken just after visiting the Art Deco exhibition in the KUMU garden.

Art Deco: Alexandre Vassiliev

 Art deco was a period of great experimentation and drastic changes in women's fashion and personal lives. It was very shocking for old-fashioned people. For the first time female cut their hair short, showed off their legs and started to enjoy life.

Last week, something amazing was opened to the public at local art museum in Tallinn, KUMU.

A Moveable Feast. Art Deco Fashion Design from Alexandre Vassiliev's Collection.

You can enjoy 80 breathtaking haute couture dresses from well known fashion houses such as Vionnet.  And 200  accessories with paintings and photos.
Exhibition is based on the collection of Alexandre Vassiliev, a fashion historian, interior designer and scenographer well known in Europe.

I can guarantee, this exhibition is definitely the most glamorous and extravagant we have had here in Estonia. I have never seen so many people on  Sunday evening at a museum. It was seriously difficult to get some decent photos.

 I just have to mention, the exhibition was curated by my seriously talented course mate - Marion Piirmets!


Glitter: You have hit me hard

Although. I don't wear much color. This dark and rainy autumn morning takes my mind on sparkling and fun items. And this happens quite frequently lately.

I find myself browsing different designer retailers daily, looking for inspiration and enjoying the uniqueness.

Here's a little collage of my favourite pieces, that caught my eye.


Goodiebag: Review

I wanted to review some latest goodiebags from Halens press event, Tartu Kaubamaja Moekuulutaja and Kadri Kruus leather show.

My favourite items has to be the Maxeyelash conditioner and Body Shop Color Crush  Hemp Over Heels nail polish.

 I've heard a lot of good things about Maxeyelash products. They say it really works and make your lashes longer and thicker. But we will see about that ;).

Tone of the Body Shop Hemp Over Heels nail polish is crazy! A true eye-catcher. Zero wear issues, high gloss and looks very awesome. With two coats stayed on for 3 days.


Review: Canon EOS M

For some months now, I've had the honour to test drive small, yet powerful hybrid camera Canon EOS M. 

If you like taking pictures, but hate the weight and size of a regular DSLR, then a hybrid is your thing. You can switch lenses, and that's just awesome. All of my latest pictures are tiken with the camera, so you can enjoy the outcome yourself.

Like.Well designed and fits perfectly into every bag. Touch screen. Sharp images.

Dislike. Autofocus can be a little slow. Slow starting. No built-in flash. Battery life is poor

Key Features: 18MP APS-C CMOS sensor; ISO 100-25,600; 4.3fps burst mode; 1080p Full HD video capture; 3.2in, 921k-dot TFT LCD display
Manufacturer: Canon


Autumn vibes: the lines

Tallinn and Estonia hides more than you could think. The remains of Soviet Union has left many extreme real estate. One of them is definitely Kopli pensinsula and the ''lines'' there. 17 hectars of wooden slums, built for the labour workers in 1913.

I love places where I can sense history and architecture at the same time. So, yesterday we took some quick photos in the ''lines'' about in 5 minutes. It's quite frightening out there, some people even live there , although most of the buildings are abandoned.

Perfect tune, for this lazy-rainy day:

 TRIFTED jeans&bag, LINDEX blouse, MANGO SUIT blazer, H&M hat, necklace, boots.


Something new, something old

When I saw these concrete barricades-spheres yesterday before movies(we went for Gone Girl, creepy as hell) I just had to take some photos with them, they go together with my monochrome outfit just perfectly.

As you have probably  noticed, I have two houndstooth coats. Although this one I bought from a flea market just for 3€. I really have a thing for this pattern, so chic and classic. 

This grey furry cardigan is another great 2€ find from  ta trift store.
