Every day, new designers collections are out; every minute I discover new cool things, amazing places and I am tempted to try exquisite experiences. What I am #dreamingof this week? These are the 7 discoveries of the week. 

Optimef – the first bags collection

The inventors of the coolest watch Fără Zece (READ the interview and the story HERE) are determined to explore the idea of quiet luxury by transforming beautiful stories into designs. This time, they have launched a bags collection, including models as Prima, Arthur, Celest. Check out your favourite. (www.optimef.com)

Diesel X Coca Cola

Coca-Cola and Diesel joined forces to create The (Re) Collection – an edgy capsule collection made with craftsmanship that incorporates recycled materials. The range includes materials such as recycled PET from plastic bottles and recycled cotton. I fell in love with the T-shirts and the original logo #DieselXCocaCola, I put on my shopping list a hoodie and a swimsuit. #DieselxCocaCola #TheREcollection – @diesel @cocacola

The cool Chanel shoes from Cruise collection

Inspired by travelling, the CHANEL 2019/20 Cruise collection focuses on a silhouette in motion, powerful and yet delicate. Comfort, functionality and elegant simplicity form the basis of this allure that nothing can hold back. And to accessorise it, Virginie Viard has imagined a shoe that shakes up the lines of a great CHANEL classic: the two-tone pump. #CHANELCruise – @chanelofficial

Bauhaus Archive Editions by COS 

If I needed another reason to love COS collection… I just have discovered COS Bauhaus capsule collection. To celebrate this centennial anniversary of Bauhaus movement, COS curated 13 pieces from its complete personal archive to create a capsule collection consisting of 6 pieces for women and 6 for men, plus an accessory, all initially inspired by the current Bauhaus and its affiliated artists. cosstores.com/archive-editions – @cosstores #COSArchiveEditions 

Lucie Houdková jewellery 

This Czech designer makes incredible jewellery from paper. Origami style, her pieces of jewellery are perfect to stand out from the crowd. Her inspiration comes from natural forms that transforms by her fantasy. She started to study at Academy of Arts, Design and Architecture in Prague. (www.luciehoudkova.com – @luciehoudkovajewellery)

Native Village, Japan 

NATIVE VILLAGE is a Tokyo-based sister houses, well-known on their native market for using only natural materials and minimalist, yet poetic designs. I liked a lot the oversized grey blazer and the white ivory dress. They presented the spring/summer 2020 collection at Paris Fashion Week, first time outside of Japan. (http://nativevillage.jp

Therma Kōta, Iceland

I follow for some time their Instagram account, and not only for the beautiful landscapes of Iceland (READ here a travel guide to Iceland). But for the cool outwear pieces of the brand founded by sisters Mosha and Sophie Lundström Halbert and their mother, Linda Lundström in 2017. The label remakes familiar coats in daring new fabrics: a traditional raincoat is given the holographic treatment with material coated in microprismatic glass particles meant to echo the colours of the aurora borealis. @termakota
