My friend Y. has one of the biggest private “collections” of Hermes scarves I know! When you question her about it, she humbly and wittily explains that it is because she had time to collect models over the years with each Christmas or birthday being a new opportunity to complement her collection! I love her answer and get her point: a scarf collection is something you develop over the years.. with passion and knowledge.
Today to celebrate this lovely late Spring time, I photographed a selection of her amazing scarves, all in the shades of mauve, one of my favourite colours to wear in late Spring when I want to start to show off my skin but that it is not too tanned yet. The colours of the scarves are incredible and the patterns transport you from India to the bottom of the sea.. Enjoy and happy Bank Holiday!
A bit of a controversial “look of the week” this week with the… Madame look!
I saw this girl in Paris outside a show at Fashion Week.
Her outfit was one of the sexiest I ever saw in the street. For the first time, this was not the ‘sexy chic‘ I am used to see (in Italy for example) nor the ‘trashy sexy‘ that I sometimes see in California (Paris Hilton are you still there?). This was just a plain outrageous and provocative sexy ‘madame style‘.
And what stunned me was that she managed to do this by just playing with her legs (if you observe her shirt is buttoned till the top)… ahah.. you can tell that she sticked to the fashion rule of so many classy women: “showonly one thing at a time and cover up the other entirely“!
I met this girl at the Trussardi party in Milan the other week.. and thought her almond shaped nails (and whole style) were quite awesome. Definitely something I will try this summer! Continue reading →
So I am now back home from what trendy people call “Fashion Month” (people do not say “Fashion Weeks” anymore but “Fashion Month” as yes, technically, it lasts about a month and it is chicer to show that you attended all of them and not just one of course..)
And as I promise you the other week when I showed you the special Carnival de Venise scarf from Hermes, here is a quick (and easy) new tutorial to show you how to rock your scarves (= how to tie them in a cool way).
This time with a Tie Knot. Here are the pictures. I did not put any comment as, hopefully, it is self explanatory (if you have any question, don’t hesitate to just leave a msg!). Continue reading →
A very quick post today cause I am on my way to Paris for the last Fashion Week of this season. I am going to be sad it is ending but on the other end, my liver really need a break (again, as I often tell you, I do not know how the other bloggers do! they are super-human beings). Continue reading →
Milan Fashion Week started yesterday and my first show over there was the fashion show of the famous Fur DesignerSimonetta Ravizza.
Milan being, as you can imagine a bit the mecca of luxury fur, I was particularly happy to be able to attend this show and get to discover how does a true luxury fur collection look like (especially since I never dared to enter any luxe fur shop and all I know from it is cheap accessories or slightly outdated vintage models).
Fashion Weeks is starting in 2 days for me (I am not going to New York unfortunately yet this year but am going to – and this is a first for me! – each of London, Milan and Paris.. wouou!) and I have not decided what to wear yet, i.e. I am going to be a fashion after-show parties outcast if I don’t find any genius look ideas very soon…
While I was working on my look, I discovered lots of super cool and fun pictures of the new look of 2013: the “Seapunk” Look. Continue reading →
The Carnival of Venice just started and I know, me too, I wish I could be there to celebrate with the chic Venetians, sipping Bellini in costume d’époque and with a beautiful hat at the bar of the Daniele hotel. One day maybe (hopefully next year..).
In the meaning, I discovered that Hermes created a gorgeous scarf for those of us who feel like adding a Carnival touch to their outfits this February. The scarf tones are all in the winter seasonal hues of Continue reading →
When I was in Paris last time, I got invited to come visit the Van Cleef & Arpels exhibition at the Musee des Arts Decoratifs. The exhibition was one of the most prestigious exhibitions to visit this winter in Paris (along with the Dior curated exhibition about Fashion in the Impressionist Paiting at the Musee D’Orsay).

One day for Christmas, I had an idea a bit crazy to ask Mother Christmas (in my family it is “Mother” Christmas more than “Father” Christmas dealing with the Christmas gifts..) for hangers. Except not normal hangers.. Chanel hangers! I had been looking for some for quite time on eBay (I love eBay for all these crazy things which you would not even know where to buy in normal circumstances) and one day, after several weeks of seeing only cheap fake Chinese copies or real ones at 1500$ (true), I found someone selling a whole set of hangers plus garment bags from a fashion show at a reasonable price.

Good evening ladies! How are you? Have you started to follow the Haute Couture Shows in Paris this week? If so, what do you think? I personally got very excited over many pieces, accessories or make up details already, let alone the news of Galliano coming back.. (oh my..). But anyway, full report on these Haute Couture Shows (and the just as interesting Street Style Looks) very soon on the blog don’t worry!
