blast from the past: five favourite haute couture shows

It was incredibly difficult for me to choose just 5 couture shows. These are the ones from the 2000s, which I remember seeing on a Czech TV show about fashion (cancelled for years now...). It is a bit nostalgic to see these pictures, while as beautiful as they are, three of the four designers do not do couture anymore. I miss Alexander McQueen as well as the couture creations of Riccardo Tisci, but most of all, I miss Christian Lacroix. By the way, these  5 collections are ordered completely randomly.

Tick it! Wear sneakers with elegant clothes and mix the unmixable.


Ever since Chanel introduced the sneakers during their HC show, bloggers wear them with everything. They are comfy, they look good and they completely change the way I look at the tick logo. I never craved them. I hate the word 'trend', yet the clash of styles in these outfits changed my mind. Now I really want them...

my mag collection + favourite issues


It is hard to say whether my collection of fashion and lifestyle magazines is overly extensive or not. I wish I could have more of them, though. I have to say I do not add that many print issues into it as 1) I live in the Czech Republic where these kind of mags are difficult to obtain/are extremely pricey 2) bought an iPad so I store the majority of the mags in there... I also no longer crave British and American Vogue (even though American Vogue is the magazine I own the most issues of), yet the German, French and Italian versions are still awesome. Among the other favourites of mine, LOVE, i-D, W, Dazed, Numéro and Frankie have their spot.

HERE ARE SOME OF MY FAVOURITE ISSUES:

Numéro #129; Karlie Kloss photographed by Greg Kadel, a lovely gift from a friend brought to me from Marseilles.

I couldn't pick just one since I love the covers so much. I got the Karlie and Jourdan one from a friend as a gift, the one with Grace Coddington I bought in WH Smith in Oxford and the one with Karlie at the bottom was ordered directly from id.com (cost me 9 quid including shipping, in CR it would be 500 CZK...)

personal favourite: LOVE magazine, Katie Grand is a fashion goddess and so is Kendall Jenner, the mag comes out twice a year and is an absolute delight to both read and flip through, rich in editorials and wonderful photographs, I bought both of them in the UK and prayed the weight of my luggage was ok at the airport :)

anything with Karlie that I can get hold of goes straight to my collection, the September issue of UK Vogue was photographed by Nick Knight (who is a favourite photographer of mine) and the other one from December is a German edition, which MIRACULOUSLY, you can buy in Olomouc


the Sunday Time Style supplement, a lovely gift from Magička, with yet again, the one and only KK on the cover


the September issues of US Vogue. If you saw the documentary, you understand the hype.


two issue of Italian Vogue: the controversial one with KK (a debate was sparked as she is thought to be too skinny), brought to me directly from Italy by my twin sister Haňule and another issue with Linda and a pug!!!, which I found at the Czech equivalent of ebay, Aukro


two issues of a magazine I have been reading a lot lately, the Australian Frankie, which focuses on art and design rather than Fashion as such
