So Frenchy

Hello Fashionistas!!! I don’t know about you but I’m really looking forward to the Paris Fashion Week which takes place in few days. I’ll have an article for you on this very soon… Bring on the shows, I can’t wait anymore! While we wait, here are some photos of my look of the moment, very Frenchy, made up mainly of “Made in France” brands on the superb Place de la Concorde.

My Parisian Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2017 (Ready to Wear) #PFW #SS17

For the Spring/Summer 2017 Fashion Week in Paris, I was lucky enough to be invited to two shows, none but Lanvin and Hermès ! It was a real pleasure, especially since I am a huge fan of these two brands!!!!

  • Lanvin Spring/Summer 2017 :

On the second day of Paris Fashion Week, I am invited to attend the presentation of the collection on Wednesday the 28th of September at 12pm at the town hall in the fourth arrondissement of Paris. I arrive fifteen minutes early, which is plenty of time as the shows always start late, so infact I’m really early!

A horde of photographers are on the scene to capture the most daring looks (the famous street-styles that I love so much), the crowd, magazine editor-in-chiefs, models, etc….

Street-style before the show…

I take a seat, as the show is starting soon. On each seat there is a folding hand-fan (Lanvin, of course) because it is ridiculously hot (because of the spotlights), plus an information sheet describing the show to come!

It’s the first collection of Bouchra Jarrar for the Lanvin fashion house, who was named the artistic director several months before, so the show is much-awaited.

To kill some time, I take some selfies in this typically Parisian setting.

I cross paths with Mademoiselle Agnes, who I like very much, and take the opportunity to get a photo with her!

My top 10 looks :

A feminine and glamourous collection. The Lanvin motifs are there – transparency, tweed, flowers, feathers, light and airy materials, and the tuxedo revival…. Anyway, both elegance and sensuality are at the meeting. Here is my selection of the best looks.

  • Hermès Spring/Summer 2017 :

On Monday the 3rd of October, I go to the Republican Guard in the fourth arrondissement of Paris, which is the ideal place to host this show, where the horses and brand emblems are part of the décor.

The atmosphere inside is impersonal and refined, with long corridors covered in white panels. A serious atmosphere, without extravagance.

My top 10 looks :

A summer collection in bright colours, ranging from pastel pink to fuschia, yellow, green, etc. The cuts give a stylish, strict and sophisticated look all at the same time. The waist line is emphasised, smocked or belted, to create the perfect hourglass figure. A Hermès requirement, leather is very much present: on blouses, on dresses, on coats but also with fringing, which I preferred.

Dans quel monde Vuitton ?

Here’s me at the Louis Vuitton Foundation in the 16th arrondissement of Paris, to discover the Chtchoukine exhibition. I love this place with modern and vast architecture. To honour the place, I’m wearing some Louis Vuitton pieces, an immortalised wink with a burgundy look which I particularly appreciate in the autumn-winter season!

Parisian Retro

A chic look with a false retro feel made up of a long trench coat and an officer-style cap. The nude tones make it very soft and chic. I really like to wear bright colours in winter as it adds a bit of brightness during a time when the weather is grim and everyone wears dark colours!

Urban & Sequins

The military style jacket is one of the big trends this year. You can wear it with several different looks, from the most sophisticated to the most simple;  a sexy tight fitting dress, shorts, ripped jeans…it will instantly give a rock and alternative edge to your outfits! I chose sequins and pearls for mine its more refined and feminine look… See for yourself!

In Black

A black look which breaks from the norm is certainly possible! Despite its sombre feel, dressing in black can be original thanks to some strong and unique pieces, the proof is in the photos!

For my look I have chosen a mesh crop top with fringing paired with some high-waisted trousers. For the accessories, a clutch bag with gold jewelled detail and ONE touch of color with some green ankle boots and another hint of gold.

Singapore party dress!

Here’s me in Singapore, an incredible city where tradition and modernity come together. I found the perfect dinner outfit, inspired by the traditional Chinese dress called “Qipao” with its high Mao-style collar and motifs. This Asian-influenced dress, reinvented by Alfredo Villalba, is made for this place!                                                                                                                                                             Here are some photos of this look by Marina Bay in Singapore!!

“In the navy”

A new take on the navy look by House of Holland, an eccentric English brand which teams originality and feminity. I love this lace-up skirt and crop-top combo… And you?

Dolce Vita

This short is part of the “Carretto Siciliano” Spring/Summer 2016 collection by Dolce & Gabbana. These prints give off the real soul of Sicily! This collection is perfect if, like me, you like colour and originality, and is ideal for taking holiday! Avoid wearing the prints all over I’d say just one piece is enough to make the most of the look.
