colour therapy/inspiration, fall-winter 2014

this is probably the first time ever in my almost 8 years of living abroad that i’m excited about fall & winter. the reason? these beauties.colortherapyinspiration

clockwise from top left: Marimekko Matsi tunic, Ikea PS 2014 storage table, Marimekko Toteemi fabric, COS Printed Round-Neck jakcet, COS Braided Loops necklace, Alexander Wang tunic, Valentino dress, Marimekko Trepp over-knee socks, Balenciaga sweater, & Other Stories Kaleidoscope ankle boots, Chanel mini flap bag, Chanel rainbow flap bag (okay, this one was actually from the spring-summer collection :p). pictures borrowed from the brands’ websites and

i added the Fazer Lakritsi (licorice) bag picture there just for fun, since i think it resembles the Valentino dress so much! ๐Ÿ˜€

i’m just happy to see colours for this coming season, and also the fact that handmade details are on-trend. i’d love to say that this collage is my wishlist, but some of these things are of course incredibly expensive that i don’t think i would ever get it even if i can afford it (since i’d rather use the money for something else). so instead i’m gonna treat this as my inspiration board. yeah, people use pinterest & instagram for that, but since i don’t useย them then this blog will have to do!

my hope isย to be able to implement these trends into my coming sewing projects, but before i rush out to buy new fabrics, i couldn’t help but notice that i might already have a few old self-made clothes that i can now re-use because of their similar colours/theme to the current trends.

like this old Marimekko overall i made in 2009.and this kaleidoscopic flower tunic i made in 2012.

and of course, the moreย recently sewn braided Tarot top (hey, it counts for “handmade detail”, though everything i sew is of course handmade :p).tarottopdetail2

can’t wait to see how other people will interpret the fall-winter 2014 trends. ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. ๐Ÿ˜€ So you’re already trendy before it’s in trend ๐Ÿ˜€ One day you should send foto of clothes you sewed from Marimekko fabric to them, it would maybe be much appreciated!

    • hahaha, or then the fashion trend is repeating itself (as it usually does every now and then). ๐Ÿ˜€

      thanks for the idea… i might just pop into one of their stores one day while wearing that overall. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    • actually, it IS just the licorice package/pussi, which is why i translated it to “bag”. ๐Ÿ˜€ it’s just there because it came to my mind when i saw the Valentino dress, hahaha… don’t you think they look alike? perhaps Valentino design team got the inspiration from Fazer. ๐Ÿ˜€

      hope you’ll also enjoy the coming fall! ๐Ÿ™‚
