Harem Pants

This seasons hottest trend – Harem pants spring/summer 2009!

Harem pants have been seen in past seasons, but this summer they have truly made it to the catwalks of most designers. I picked out a few that I would like to own myself. Until recently, I haven’t really considered harem pants as having the most flattering shape, but if they are high waisted and worn with a belt it’s not too bad, not too bad at all… Have to admit though, they do look much better on taller thin girls.

Ode to Malene Birger

One of my favorite Danish designers is Malene Birger. I probably own half of her summer 2009 collection by now and I’m not done yet. Every year she manages to blow me away with her fantastic collections. Malene has a way of combining the ideas of elegance and sassiness to her designs that seem to appeal to most women.

malene

Following are a few words about the woman behind the brand “by Malene Birger”. After completing her degree at Denmark’s Design School in 1989, Malene became a designer. She worked for various Scandinavian brands as a fashion designer before she finally established her first company, Day Birger et Mikkelsen in 1997.

In 2003, when Malene started her own brand BY MALENE BIRGER, she caught the eye of the international press who was impressed by her talent. During the next few years Malene won numerous Design Awards and the prestigious Gazelle Award from a Danish Business newspaper Børsen, as the fastest growing company in Copenhagen.

Outside the design studio Malene is just as influential. She is a philanthropist and has contributed to charity as a special Ambassador to UNICEF Denmark.

Here are a few of my favorite pieces from this summer’s collection:

Marc by Marc Jacobs – Silk Colorblock Playsuit

I stumbled over this gorgeous playsuit today when I was carefully going through all the new fashions on net-a-porter.com. Fresh from the spring collection 2009 and almost sold out. It is definitely a must have for this summer! It is going to look fabulous on a summer day with a nicely tanned skin in contrast to the bright colors. I ordered the last one, sorry…

the Boyfriend Blazer

One of this seasons hottest trends is the boyfriend blazer. I’ve always been into menswear and often found myself shopping for polo shirts and bags in mens department. And I absolutely loooove mens watches! Nothing wrong with spicing a feminine dress with a little masculine style. And the boyfriend blazer can be worn with pretty much everything. I especially like it with a belt around the waist because it creates a nice body shape…
