Welcome to the jungle!

Japanese designer Tsumori Chisato’s signature style is celebrated with her innovative and luxurious textiles, intricate beading, embroidery, appliqués and prints of her own design. For her FW 2014 collection, presented during Paris Fashion Week, she  is kind of bringing the jungle to the Fauvism exhibition and spitting it the FW 2014 out as fashion. The wild color mix is perfectly adapted to the elegant silhouettes of the 20s and 40s. Check it out:

Chanel Shopping Center

It’s Tuesday.
11.14 pm.
And a friend of mine is sending me the first live Chanel A/W 14 runway show pictures on WhatsApp. I did understand that this brand turned the freaking room into a big ass supermarket with Chanel food and beverage products all over the place. Like the water Eau de Chanel N°0, the Coco Choco or the Chanel door mat. But the dimension of it all just hit me today. It turns out not only to be a supermarket, but a freaking superstore! Like are you fucking serious? This is genius!!! Although it’s funny that Karl doesn’t even remember the last time he was in a supermarket.

I find the clothes being dope, which I expected it to be. Like let’s be honest: anything else would just be disappointing. And who would have thought that Kim Kardashian’s sister Kendall is taking over Paris Fashion Week!?But what really stroke me are the accessories, which are designed to be smart as fuck and perfectly played out. Time to shop some groceries…

Favorite Aussie

Today I realized I am way behind with everything: studying (actually, that realization has been there all along but I’m a great suppresser of feelings), Christmas shopping and, yes, until yesterday, also rent. And I am especially late with the Paris fashion week street style pictures, of which I took so many. So, in order to begin with the street style series, let’s look at Christine Centenera, senior fashion editor at Australian VOGUE, and her amazing outfit at the Chanel show: she has hit the mark on favorite fall styles, a balance between Parisian chic (them Parisiennes love their sheer, sleek silk shirts and leather pencil skirts) and edgy-cool (hate both words, but cannot be bothered to look up a more fitting one). Love everything about this, the gold necklaces, the oversized coat (WANT) and the bold sunglasses to protect her from the non-existent French sun and street peepers like me.

P.S.: Exaggerated on the title, though. My list of favorite Aussies goes like this:

1. Abbey Lee Kershaw

2. Catherine McNeil

3. Hugh Jackman

4. Christine Centenera

But being placed right behind Hugh Jackman is certainly not the worst thing in the world…

The Shit I’m Wearing: Prints

Let’s call today #throwbacktuesday and flashback to Paris Fashion Week. I think one of the main unwritten rules in the book for amazingly dresses people who just happen to land on street style blogs and special fashion week edition magazines, is to just pretend they fell out of bed, threw the first thing on they could find (which in my case would be my duvet… NOT something you want to wear out and about unless it’s Margiela) and look incredibly polished in their avantgarde pieces they just happened to find hanging in the back of their closets. Yeah right. Fashion weeks off the runways are all about wearing beautifully weird (let’s call it fashion forward), most carefully planned outfits and then pretend to be busy talking on your phone or just striking a perfect pose somewhere in the middle on the street, long enough for the bloggers and photographers to take the perfect “candid” but not too long so it doesn’t seem to willingly.

I’m guessing this little revelation makes me lose a lot of cool points…Whoops.

Thank you to the lovely Marcy Swingle from Gastrochic for the lovely post and the amazing pictures!

The amazing Grace Coddington after Chloé. If you haven’t picked up The September Issue (documentary, not magazine, come on!) yet, it is definitely worth watching. Forget Lauren Weisenberger’s too naive to be true tale of the Devil Wears Prada, this … Continue reading
