Blue is the new black

Take cue from MGC second Dior show

Trying to find her place at the French house Dior designer Maria Grazia Chiuri suggests blues as the new black for the upcoming season. She’s toying with school girl uniforms and denim in a collection that seems hits all the right ideas – allowing women feel at ease while wearing the clothes rather than constraint for example – but isn’t fully achieved yet. One of her ispirations, though, a quote by M.Dior from the “The Little Dictionary of Fashion” struck me, though: “Among all the colors, navy blue is the only one which can ever compete with black. It has all the same qualities.” Hence I’ve selected my outfit of the day to be all blue – for the giddy version of a blue monday!

From top left to bottom right you’re looking at The Pansy beanie made from Wool by Acne Studios. I keep getting asked what makes Acne Studios a brand known for its ethical fashion so let me thake the chance to explain briefly, while also pointing you to its Brand Portrait: Acne Studios are a member of the Fair Wear Organisation, that only accepts members who provide secure working standards in all facilities of production – and check upon the progress a brand makes in this area annually. I also like the fact that Acne Studios will always provide you with info on where any particular garment has been made, that’s its coutry of origin.

Then there’s a blue silky dress by Stella McCartney who meets three of the four criterias I use for the Fair-a-porter Standard. The Mykita glasses on the top right don’t only look smart and lovely like an uber-intelligent secretary who could well rund for president but are also locally made in Berlin from A-Z. The light blue denim jacket ( nice length here!) is by Stella McCartney, the denim Jensen boots and the indigo blue denim both by Acne Studios. And the latter is on sale. Happy monday!
