Karl Lagerfeld, guest editor for Marie Claire Spain

Karl Lagerfeld has been the guest editor for this month’s issue of Marie Claire Spain, that celebrates its 25th Anniversary. Happy Birthday Marie Claire! :)

The issue is filled with lots of articles about Karl, a very interesting interview, and a great selection of his work as photographer. Diane Kruger, Claudia Schiffer, Vanessa Paradis… His usual muses. They tell the anecdote of how he began to photograph the collections and ad campaigns. Twenty years ago, he saw the photos of his collection on a magazine and he thought they were awful (he probably said it aloud), and his friend Eric Pfrunder, artistic director of Chanel, encouraged him to take the photos himself. That’s how Karl Lagerfeld began his career as photographer.

The content revolves around Gabrielle Chanel style, black and white, and Karl’s personality. Here you have some of my favourite photos from the magazine, all taken by Karl except for the editorials. The issue is already on the newsstands.

PS: The issue comes with a very nice tote bag!

Swimsuits and sunglasses, all I need for the next few weeks

Summer is my favourite season of the year (well, it was kind of obvious as this blog is called Miss at la Playa for some reason). Sun, the beach, spending the afternoon at the swimming pool… The perfect plan.

Beautiful swimsuits are difficult to find, and even more if you’re looking for one-pieces. I wanted to share with you some of my favourite labels: dosMares is a label based in Barcelona designed by Anna Maria Settimi, who was born in Brazil and is inspired by their colourful and shiny style. I love its classic feel. We are handsome, the very popular aussie swim label, is known for their iconic prints. Too bad it’s a little bit expensive. Rihanna and Diane Kruger are fans. Wildfox, which you probably know of, have also launched a swim line with hip designs. And Bohemian chics, a spanish label, is very nice too.

And the sunglasses… Is there a more awesome accesory? I love the vintage styles, but also the futuristic and crazy ones. The bad thing is that lowcost isn’t an option, the glasses must be the best quality!
