Happy Birthday Funky Jungle! - and a Marc Jacobs Giveaway



It's hard to believe, but it really has been over 1 year ago that I wrote the very first post for Funky Jungle. And how much my little one has grown since then. A growth that wouldn't have been possible without you, dear funky readers.

As "Thank You!" from me to you, I am bringing you this exciting giveaway. I almost wish I could take part myself! We are talking Marc Jacobs here Ladies (and Gentlemen).

Here's to many more funky posts! Cheers!

È dura crederci, ma è già passato un anno da quando ho scritto il primo post per Funky Jungle e quanto è cresciuto il mio piccolo da allora. Una crescita che non sarebbe stata possibile senza di voi, cari funky lettori!

Come "Grazie" da parte mia verso di voi, vi porto questo eccitante "giveaway". Quasi quasi vorrei potervi partecipare io stessa! Stiamo parlando di Marc Jacobs qui gentili signore (e signori).

Un augurio per molti altri funky posts! Saluti!

Es ist fast nicht zu glauben, aber es ist bereits ein Jahr vergangen seit dem ich diesen Blog ins Leben gerufen und den ersten Artikel veroeffentlicht habe. Und wie mein kleiner Blog seither gewachsen ist! Ohne Euch, liebe Funky Leser waere das nicht moeglich gewesen.

Als "Danke Schoen" von mir an Euch bringe ich Euch diese Verlosung. Wuerde da ehrlich gesagt selbst gerne mitmachen! Ich meine, wir reden hier von Marc Jacobs, Maedels (und Jungs).

Da bleibt mir nur noch der Wunsch auf viele weitere Funky Posts! Prost! ;-)

LFW SS15 - Special Love to Jonathan Saunders



I admit that London Fashion Week for me was about 50/50. I didn't find quite as many collections spectacular, inspiring, covet worthy as during its sister event in New York. Here is one of those that was all of these things. And more.

Clearly he took inspiration from nature, flowers and leaves are present through out the collection, whether directly or in a more abstract way. He himselfs cites a piece of cotton voile, light and thin like paper, from a Japanese mill.

Ammetto che La settimana della moda a Londra per me era bella a metà. Non ho trovato molte delle collezioni né spettacolari, né ispiratrici, né tanto meno degne di essere desiderate, certo non quanto quelle dell'evento di New York. Qui però ce n'è una che è tutte quelle cose assieme e anche di più.

Ha chiaramente preso ispirazione dalla natura, dai fiori e le foglie presenti in tutta la collezione, a volte in modo diretto, altre volte in modo più astratto. Lui dice che è stato un pezzo di cotone, sottile e leggero come un pezzo di carte, proveniente da una filanda giapponese

Ich gebe zu, dass die London Fashion Week fuer mich so eher 50/50 war. Fand sehr viel weniger Kollektionen spektakulaer, inspirierend oder schlicht "haben will" als waehrend der Schwesterveranstaltung in New York. Hier ist eine, die aber all das dann eben doch war. Und mehr.

Es ist deutlich zu sehen, das er sich an der Natur orientiert hat, Blumen und Blaetter sind durch die gesamte Kollektion weg present, ob jetzt in direkter oder eher abstrakter Form. Er selbst gibt ein Stueck Baumwoll Voile, leicht und duenn wie Papier, aus einer japanischen Spinnerei an.

Fashion Find - 15 Very Fashionable Coats for Winter



During the winter months, a coat is your number one way to be both stylish and stay warm. Whether it is trendy or classic, it basically becomes your outfit whilst you are out and about, your business card, the first impression you are giving. Investing in a good coat is a smart decision, because the (for you) perfect coat will be a trusty friend for many occasions and many seasons.

NYFW SS15 - Special Love to Vivienne Tam



Take one look at those prints and you know one reason why I love the collection. Another one? The mesh inserts. Not enough? The silhouettes.
