It has come to my attention that lately, while shopping in Zara, I’ve been browsing through men’s accessories more than through women’s. And I even liked some of the pieces more than women’s. So I’ve decided to do a post on accessories for men, which can be used on women as well. I love the idea of mixing and matching ‘male’ and ‘female’ together all in one look. So here it is. My favorite pieces in Zara Menswear Fall/Winter 2012. And yes, I would LOVE to have all the following pieces in my closet:)
The herringbone cap – love the pattern. So chic!
The stockinette stitch hat. Have it:)
The hooded scarf. So cool.
The jacquard pattern collar. I want to have this collar. Asap.
The micro pattern scarf. Again, love the pattern and the color.
The plaited collar. I heart this collar.
The latest trend for fall/winter 2012 is a bow tie for women, as seen on Diane Kruger. One usually wears a bow tie together with a blazer or tux and the whole shebang that goes with it; that’s why it’s very easy for women to overdo it and look too butch. In order to maintain some sort of balance and still be feminine and sexy, it actually all comes down to hair and accessories.
If you decide to wear your hair in a bun, make sure you wear at least one very feminine piece to soften this look. Diane Kruger pulls it off splendidly with a gorgeous clutch and a pair of high heels.
If you decide for a more casual look, wear your hair loose, play with accessories; add a nice shoulder bag, sheer blouse with a bowtie, sexy black shorts with cute buttons on it and a great pair of shoes.
Unisex bowties in Zara:
The polka dot bowtie. Cute!
The checked bowtie.
Happy Wednesday everyone!
Yesterday, I went to the Ljubljana Film festival and saw A Dangerous Method, a historical film about Freud and Jung. The film is entertaining and educational and the acting is very impressive. Keira Knightley did a marvelous job portraying a young hysterical patient who during the process of therapy falls for the young charismatic Jung, played by the wonderful Michael Fassbender.
What impressed be more about Knightley’s acting is that she also managed to keep a continuous accent of a Russian Jew throughout the film. As a major cinephile, I’ve noticed that actors sometimes ‘’lose’’ the accent during the film (e.g. Anne Hathaway butchering the British accent in ‘’One Day’’; an American trying to unsuccessfully imitate the British accent is truly the saddest thing in the world) thus making a complete mockery of the role and the character. Luckily, this is not one of those films.
Viggo Mortensen. Need I say more? Very convincing acting, a nice continuous British accent throughout the film and a lovely on-screen charisma. And great make-up. He really, really looked like Freud with that white beard. Nice! I also love the fact that Fassbender and Mortensen starred in the same film. They are my two favorite actors.
David Cronenberg did a marvelous job; the scenery in the film, Switzerland and Austria, is fantastic, I even recognized one of the cafes in Vienna, where I had a Sachertorte;) Cronenberg also managed to answer almost a hundred year old question: what caused the dispute between Freud and Jung? And the answer is: Keira Knightley. The world makes sense again. Bless you Cronenberg for putting so many analytical psychologists at ease. Phew!
