It has been a while since I have written about a new designer.
But it was worth waiting, because I think you are all going to live this one.
OK, so we all know the biker jacket. A piece generally with a rock style, which has become a basic in our wardrobe. Last seasons, maybe we dared to wear it in different colours, such as red, white, powder pink, but the originality stopped there.
And then, Alice Balas (one of my friend again, I know, but what can I do if my friends are talented?), who is an Art Director, but very recently also a designer, has created a collection entirely dedicated to this famous leather jacket.
Being a Parisian who also lived in London, she was inspired by the effortless chic of the first one, the underground and boldness style of the second, to realise her very first collection.
Her “Perfectos” are feminized and customised, characterised by a combination of different leathers, colours, fabrics and details: golden sleeves, studded backs, fur collars…giving each model a sometimes rock, sometimes boho, sometimes classic style.
Each creation (69 in total) is unique, and has it’s own personalised label that is numbered, signed and dated by the designer.
This first collection is available on demand, by contacting Alice directly here.
You can also follow her on her Instagram!
The sales are the first date I am underlining in my calendar, before my birthday, my lover’s birthday, or before I check if the 4th of July will fall on a Monday or Friday in order to have a long week-end.
My problem: I did way too much shopping after my pregnancy, and, even if I keep persuading myself that I need to do so for my blog (wouldn’t it be boring if I was wearing the same jacket TWICE?), I am, for the first time, trying to stay away from the sales. Continue… →
The Coachella annual festival is the rendez-vous of music aficionados, but not only.
It also has been invaded by fashionistas for a few years, and we have noticed that the hashtag #coachella shows more pictures of boho outfits than music performances.
H&M, who is a partner of the festival, understood this and decided to ride the wave, creating a fashion line dedicated to Coachella.
The pictures have not been revealed yet, but we already know that the collection will embody the spirit of the festival: bohemian, sensual and casual.
Fringes, lace, tie dye, mini-shorts and large pants…to discover starting March 26th!
Here we are, back in California!
As soon as we arrived, we went to Palm Springs, in the Coachella Valley, to attend the Palm Springs Film Festival (do you remember my post from January 14thin the Coachella desert?)
I choose a 100% French outfit (living abroad awakes my patriotism), with this cute navy blue Sandro dress, which I contrasted with rock boots, and a XXL hat.
Chic, confortable, feminine but not cheesy.
Most of the article I am wearing are currently on sales, the links to shop them are at the end of this post ☞ Continue… →
I am very sentimental: every time I leave a place, even if I hated it at first. I feel nostalgic and this is exactly how I feel about the Halle Pajol neighbourhood, where I spent the last few months in Paris.
This is the last outfit we shot in Paris, before we took our plane to Los Angeles.. It was soooo cold and grey, I was freezing! I won’t regret the winter weather in Paris, for sure :-).
I picked, for this last outfit, an urban and rock outfit, wearing my IRO leather jacket (love it so much, but definitely NOT the thing you want to wear in January in Paris),
The highlight of this look is my new The Kooples white fluffy jumper. I love to wear white color in winter, it si so chic and brightens any outfit. The bonus of this one; his leather details on the shoulders, which give a rock touch.
