a/w 2014: by malene birger

_dsc2327-1

I fell in love with Danish fashion designer, Malene Birger when I purchased this By Malene Birger coat in early fall, so checking out her Autumn/Winter 2014 show online during Copenhagen Fashion Week was an absolute must.  Looking back, early fall was probably just a crush since after seeing this new collection, I can now say with serious conviction it’s a full on obsession.  Like the real deal kind.  I have never witnessed styling as in sync with my personal taste, so much so that I feel like Malene and I could have collaborated together in a past life.  One look after the next was/is brilliant and I’d wear entire head-to-toe ensembles, changing nada!  Relaxed, edgy, hints of boho, effortless layering, impeccable details, embellishment in just the right places and all completely wearable!  It’s what I like to describe as my BP (best possible).  Consider me over the moon inspired, which I really needed as of late!  Here’s a snapshot of some favorites, but check out the entire show here.  And of course, happy Monday!  xx jenny
