Marant's Crochet, Clements Ribeiro and Monki

This sale-season I felt more like saving for the upcoming collections than to splurge on items that are almost last season. I did buy some that are more into the neutral (timeless) category:

* Clements Ribeiro Cashmere Sweater

Originally in the 400 pricerange and discounted to a €150.
Actually, this has been a RTS (return to Sender) but I liked the cosiness of the picture that I put it on first.

The designs of (married) Suzanne Clements and Inacio Ribeiro have been on my "wanna-have" style radar since seeing his Esher-esque prints in 2011 (see here). A quirky spin on the cashmere sweater in one of the more flattering tones for my complexion would be a good buy:


Unfortunately, the cashmere wasn't so soft. I have a COS sweater that is much softer.
 
Adding to that: the size is perfect but the lenght made it a croptop. Not something I am looking for in a classic and time-lasting cashmere sweater. Also, the jewellery detailing? Kinda plastic, don't you think?

  • Isabel Marant √Čtoile Crochet dress 
Discounted from €200 (something) to €75. 

I have been seeing quite some crotchet clothes on other blogs recently and realised it is a perfect piece of dressing during summer. Moreover, it can also work as a trans-seasonal piece to tone down the bright and tropical gear I adore to wear.

  • Monki Sequin collared sheer blouse

This is not a sale but people who know Monki know it's a similar price range as H&M or Forever 21. I love this one for it's delicate sequin collar. They opened a Monki store in Utrecht this year and I am not sure if it is in Amsterdam as well.

Have you splurged during the sales or do you wait for the newer collections?
