NYC. We snapped these pictures the day before the snow blizzard hit New York and I can’t believe how quickly the weather changed! I’m so happy that I brought this emerald green cashmere sweater with me to NY to keep me warm + brighten up my looks, it’s definitely been a lifesaver during these past couple of days. Tonight I’m heading to the Bloglovin x Kenzo party which I’m co-hosting, and I’m so excited to finally get to catch up with all the people I haven’t seen due to the usual fashion week madness!

NYC. I have no idea how, but in the midst of fashion week madness I totally forgot to post my nyfw photo diary, but better late than never I guess. I honestly can’t believe these pictures were taken two months ago, where did time fly?

PARIS. As I mentioned in my previous post, I did a second trip to Paris from tuesday to wednesday to attend the Louis Vuitton S/S 13 show. Although we may look relaxed in these pictures I can tell you that was totally not the case. On our way to the show, me and Andy got stuck in traffic and ended up having to run the last 200 meters (in high heels) to the sound of the guards outside the show space counting down the minutes until the show started. We arrived at 09.59 and as soon as we found our seats, the lights went down and the show started. Talk about last minute!!
The show itself was a magical ode to the 60′s featuring cute mod girls in couples of two, cascading down four massive escalators onto the checkered runway. The models sported cute beehives, pea coats, maxi skirts, mini dresses, crop tops and short jackets, all covered in graphic squares in white and sunshine yellow - a fresh contrast to last years romanticly themed runway show.
Huge thanks to LV for inviting me, and to my running partner Andy for not leaving me behind when my left shoe almost fell off during our sprint to the show. Never ever thought we would make it on time but somehow we did and I could not have picked a better team mate!

DAGMAR. Started my morning with Dagmar’s ss 13 show and loved every second of it. The collection, which was inspired by bio-architecture, is all about dynamic contradictions; high tech meets tradition, delicate vs rough, neon brights/sand tones. On top of my wishlist are the chunky knitted jumpers, the amazing leather pieces (!!) and that stunning gray coat with zippers in the front. Seriously can’t wait for this collection to hit the stores next year!
