Spotted. Collars popped in this crisp très chic leopard dotted trench that craves cool, fall afternoons meandering along the windy Seine browsing the aged wooden bookstalls.

Soft, earthy, deconstructed moss tinted pieces combine a lovely sense of natural elegance, with the perfect touch of sensuality for a cumulative effect of irresistible enchantment.

Jacquemus’ new generation French style feels refreshingly sincere and youthful, with his charming, wide-eyed approach to style. Jacquemus is celebrated for his deconstructed, broken-down silhouettes, playing with proportions, and sensational eye for pigment.

Jacquemus’ take on the tailored suit is gamine and intriguing, with it’s soft, folded draping, exquisite wool fabric, and light almond color. Get ready for an afternoon perusing narrow Saint-Germain streets for vintage record stores and smokey cafes.

Drawing upon inspiration reminiscent of ‘80s Parisian haute couture, a playful spirit, and fresh take on classic style, Jacquemus is taking French style through a metamorphosis. Style tip: navy is the new black.

Mad For Plaid

‘Tis the season to wear plaid. Designers including Fendi, Saint Laurent, Prada, and Calvin Klein feature gray plaid in their Fall 18 collections, making it the standout pattern for the season. But plaid isn’t even the original name of this checkered pattern: proper plaid is actually tartan, a woven wool cloth donned with the iconic pattern. Different variations of the pattern were used in Scotland during the 1500s to distinguish one clan or geographical region from another — so basically, it was style with a purpose.

With my today’s look I mean business. I wore my plaid blazer over a short sleeve turtleneck, and paired it with wide leg pants. To create an edgy look, I completed my look with oversized sunglasses (which I am obsessed with) and an eye popping red bag. Check out my outfit deets below.

Shades Of Fall

This season is all about Camel and Leopard print! There is no denying animal prints’ enormous presence on the Fall/Winter 2018 runways. Classic camel is incredibly easy to work with, since its neutral shade pairs with literally everything, while animal prints can be incorporated through accent pieces. Or if you’re into prints you can work with printed layerings – a fur coat, cardi, or overcoat. I always find myself in some kind of variation of casual, neutral and oversized. Get my outfit details below.

Chloé Spring 2019 Lookbook

For Chloé’s Spring 2019 season Natacha Ramsay-Levi presented a feminine, refined and confident collection. Check out the entire lineup below.

Jil Sander Resort 2019

Femininity, simplicity, the strength of intimacy. The source of Jil Sander’s Resort 2019 collection is in everyday life. Utilitarian objects are transformed into design pieces. A Vichy story, with large and small checks in cream, pale blue, cocoa, yellow, and black, translates familiar motifs and hues, warm and comforting, into a statement. Corsetry, a symbol of feminine strength, turns structure into form, shaping jackets and tops: desire, protection and control, but without restraint, off the body. Quilted and striped dimensional skirts float, transforming domestic patterns into light, soft forms.

There is a carefully designed sense of ease. A voice, clear and soft-spoken, sensitive and recognizable among diverging sounds, creates a bottom note that you can clearly hear. The expressions of Lucie and Luke Meier’s Jil Sander are crisp, bold, and aware. Most dis­tinctively their own. The world we need to design for is our life: clothes need to make us feel confident and safe, to enhance our power to enter, individually, into the future.

Now the future is spring: rebirth, growth, freshness, youth, skin. There are shorts, bare arms and legs. Tailoring is presented directly on the skin, representative of a lighter approach but also one that is inti­mate and caressing. Silhouettes are sharp and in motion; sculptured with folds and creases, animated by malfilé linen/viscose, and pleats. Skirts are worn over trousers. Everything is layered; an invitation to combine garments at will. Volumes are luscious, trousers are comfortable, the mood is relaxed.

White, cream, camel and black, pastel colours. Fabrics that seem solid at a closer look reveal subtle weavings of yarns of different hues. Shirts and shirt-dresses are fluid. Classic coats, long and short, beige or navy and black, are generous, display contrast stitching and magnified checks.

The research of materials is accurate and deep. The synergy between shapes, fabrics, patterns and touch is forward looking. Touching is as important as looking. There is a constant interplay between what is seen and what is felt in wearing a garment. Refined wools, cottons and silks match, and sometimes double, polyester and nylon. Bags are soft and malleable or structured and edged, iconic and functional. A transparent nylon hand-knitted bag transforms the everyday reality into an elevated proposal. Different worlds meet and merge. This is an age of ambivalence: we are multiple, everything changes. The future is us.

 

 

Polka Dotted

I’m so glad that polka dots are back and as Marc Jacobs once said: “There is never a wrong time for a polka dot.” Designers offer a selection of polka dots for Spring Summer 2018, like Dior’s Parisian looks with ladylike polka dots, or a new take on the motif, the exaggerated dots at Carolina Herrera, or micro dots at Balenciaga, and mixed dotted patterns at Jason Wu. This classic print gives you a strong vintage vibe.

My today’s look is all about this polka dot ruched midi dress from TopShop, which I paired with the softest suede moto jacket from Old Navy and black suede ankle boots.

And Other Stories

I am in a total spring mood wearing this pink frilled one shoulder top by &otherstories. I can’t get enough of this color. We’ve seen head-to-toe pink looks at Spring 2018 runways like Tom Ford, Off-White, Marco de Vincenzo, Missoni, to name a few. I paired it with black cropped pants and striped mid heel slingback shoes by Zara. Check out the images below.
