Todays look inspired by the one and only Bianca Jagger that rocked the white suit like no other. Effortly chic.

I dont know WHEN my suit obsessions started but I know from WHERE. The 70’s of course. David Bowie, Mick Jagger, François Hardy and then of course the goddess Bianca Jagger. WHY such a suit obsession?

I feel confident wearing a suit. I enjoy mixing the two pieces. I like wearing more masucline pieces and I find it more flattering than any other oufit in my wardrobe. It’s wardobe staple that can be worn through all seasons.

I am always on the lookout for a suit when buying stock for my shop and yesterday was one of those lucky days. A white suit. I’m also slowly but surely collecting some key pieces for summer and I am definitely building up more of a 90’s Italian wardrobe. Cotton shirt, sailor stripes, balloon sleeves, silk scarfs and lots of gold jewellery. And I cant wait!

For now, I’ll just live in my white suit till warmer weather.

I’d love to know how you building your wardrobe for summer? Which style are you leaning torward and what are the key pieces?

 

Thank you for reading! Happy week all!

Versace - Time is key

Mia Williams

Time is key

With summer approaching, our rails and drawers are slowly but surely making room for our summer dresses, sailor shirt, slipdresses, hats and accessories.

After a long, dark and harsh winter, I am looking forward to getting a golden tan, drinking Aperol Spritz/ice coffees in the sun and having picnics by the lake with friends.

With less layers, more exposed skin, I enjoy to accessorise with bold accessories, such as sunglasses, hats and my new favourite watch, gifted from Versus Versace.

Versus Versace creates watches that needs no introduction or any extra layerering. I chose the gold watch with small lion head carvings and a see-through face. A versatile colour that can be worn with delicate/sheer or paired up with an oversized workers shirt and roughly rolled up sleeves, for an every day look.

So no more excuses for running late nor simple summer looks.

Thank you Versus Versace and Grove Communication. Check out their website for more fabulous watches ~

Take me out tonight

Mia Williams

It all started with a ‘Hi’, a night out on town and of course the love we have for fashion.

The inspiration behind our story? Music videos from the 60’s, 70’s and 80’s, also everyday people recreating a simple outfit without spending thousands of pounds and of course looks from the runaway, such as Balenciaga, Saint Laurent, Gucci, John Lawrence Sullivan and few others.

Over the top layers, textures, patterns and accessories was key to each look. Multiple belts around the waist, draped faux fur, earrings and a pair of Gucci’s to complete the outfit. We also incorporated streetwear to compliment the delicasy of lace and sheer from the Madseventies collection.

Photography done by Lucio Lupacchini. The ability to capture the perfect combination between delicate and bold. Hair and make-up by Holger Hoelkeskamp, also the owner of Stresemann hairsalon in Düsseldorf. If you need a chic new hair cut, complete pampering then head down Streseman. Hair created in Take me out’ styled using Bumble and Bumble. Make up inspired by artists from the 60’s and 80’s, using the brand Smashbox to create Twiggy lashes and bold eyeshadow from the 80’s.  Vintage pieces from my shop Madseventies, styled and modeled by me. Using a variety of materials to create different layers of textures and really playing with colours.

With mimosas in hand, Blondie playing in the background and fabulous company we created ‘Take me out’ in Düsseldorf.

P.S They are also the best kind of people to know.

Talking layers. Self portaits and styling by me.

Mia Williams

Can one wear too many layers of clothing? Never!

Being the owner of my vintage shop ‘Madseventies’ has given me the opportunity to play dress up, style garments, describe and sell.

Depop app itself, has grown immensley in the last two years, with more sellers to the app. With more people selling (which is a step into the right direction to help our planet) means simply working harder, finding ways to make your brand even more desirable but most of all, staying true to what your brand stand for.

As a lover of fashion, I have always preferred more of a masculine style, and this comes from years back, raging through my dads wardrobe trying on his suits and making all kinds of knots or tucks to make an oversize shirt look stylish. So the times I get most inspired is during London Fashion Week Men’s which has been recently. And I am very excited to incorporate some of my favourite runaway looks into my shop as well as my personal wardrobe.

Exciting things are happening with Madseventies and all will be revealed soon. But for now, I thought I share some of my favourite looks from fashion and week and talk on how to work that into your daily looks.

The first look is inspired by the amazing John Lawrence Sullivan AW18 collection. Its all about the well tailored trousers, cinched-waist and detailed shirts. So I’ve paired up a pair of vintage leather trousers, with a 60’s high neck top, pullover knit, oversized leather jacket and of course a pair of fun kicks and fire socks to break the-all-leather-look.

In my second look Ive taken inspiration from the fabulous Ann Demeulemeester’s AW18 collection. Totally in love with the layers, different textures and patterns perfectly styled together. I’m wearing my pinstripe suit, layered with a gorgeous silk skirt, cinched with double belts and a leopard print bucket hat to clash patterns.

I’ve really enjoyed Alex Mullins AW collection. Im all about men’s trousers, oversized blazers with patterns to create depth.  So in my third look Im wearing oversized olive green trousers, Dolce and Gabanna shirt layered with a striped roll sleeve and a chocolate pinstrip blazer. Ive added a strapped sandal and glitter socks to soften the masculine look.

And onto my last look.  Mochino AW18 collection. The statement boots, the boxy jackets and bold patterns I could not resist. So I paired up a vintage boxy suede jacket with slim leggings and killer patent knee high boots. Ive added a sheer blouse with ‘sleeves for days’ to create movement to the look.

All these inspired looks has been styled with pieces from my Madseventies shop. As much as I (and maybe you) would love to wear a lot of these runaway looks, its just not possible budget wise, but that shouldnt stop you from taking inspiration from the catwalks and all walks of life. The fun part is create your own style and be comfortable with it.
