My Look: Love This

One more look from the Maldives. I just love this. The colors blend in so nicely with the beautiful island that is the postcard perfect backdrop.

My look: Ascu cropped open-back one-shoulder ribbed linen-blend topicon by Jacquemus, crystal-embellished stretch-mesh midi skirticon by Alessandra Rich, cutout acetate butterfly sunglasses in shiny black smoke by Fendi, open-toe platform-sole sandals, and long silver floral earrings, both by Gucci, black bikini bottoms with white piping by CHANELPalmette crystal-embellished suede cross-body bag by Christian Louboutin, and Oyster Perpetual 36 with a turquoise blue dial by Rolex.

My Look: Maldives Memories

Maldives memories… the clear turquoise waters, the white beaches of the Indian Ocean paradise are a magnet for anyone with an interest in marine life. There is a lot to do and on the other hand, there is nothing to do. The Maldives is a haven of peace, quietness, solitude, and relaxation. Something I absolutely needed.

However, as the scenery was so stunning, I booked a photographer to shoot some amazing outfits. While staying at the Ritz-Carlton Fari Islands resort, we had moved one day to a water villa where I shot this vibrant look overlooking the ocean. Personally speaking, the composition of these photos might be one of my favorites of all time.

My look: Manosque tiered taffeta maxi dressicon by Jacquemus (S/S 2020 «Le Coup de Soleil» Collection), pink high-heel platform mules by Versace, Baguette leather wallet on chain in pink by Fendi, toy choker necklace, and gummy bear hoop earrings, both by Balenciaga, and DiorSignature B1U cat-eye acetate and gold-tone sunglasses by Dior.

Trending: The Hot Pink Jacket

Hot pink is trending – it’s THE shade that has been seen allover the streets during Paris Fashion Week last week. For Valentino’s F/W 2022 collection, Pierpaolo Piccioli focused on this single color and created 48 head-to-toe looks in the mood-boosting hue, that was developed in collaboration with Pantone. It so catchy and energetic that it got even its own name, Valentino Pink PP.

I recommend getting a blazer, expertly tailored, to sport the electrifying shade on a daily basis. The buttons should be neutral, no gold ones or anything else that could distract from the color that has come a long way from its days of simply being a staple in a little girl’s closet.

Below you can shop the best chic pink explosion jackets of the moment!

My Look: Windy

Mykonos is also known as the «Island of the Winds». Indeed, Mykonos can be extremely windy. It is rare to find windless days in the islands but thankfully I was not affected unduly. However, of course, the day when we shot several looks, the wind was extreme as you can see.

I love this black and white look by Jacquemus. The label is the brainchild of Simon Porte Jacquemus, a thirtysomething designer‚ who is gaining more and more in popularity. His key to success? An innate ability to create viral hits and to quickly convert new collections into revenue at a price point unheard of in luxury fashion.

My look: Baci cropped gathered organic cotton-jersey T-shirticon, and Draio cutout shell midi skirticon, by Jacquemus, LV Link square sunglasses by Louis Vuitton, Niki mini studded quilted textured-leather shoulder bag by Saint Laurent, and quilted leather mulesicon by Bottega Veneta.

My Look: Sporty in Crete

Hello from Crete! Finally I am on «real» vacation, which means for me, no make-up, curly hair, lots of sports, reading and sleeping. I am staying at the Blue Palace Resort, located between the small fishing village of Plaka and the increasingly chic port of Elounda in one of their Island Luxury Suites, that features a private pool, and a beautiful spacious outdoor area. I have barely left my room so far and exercised on my terrace in this fucking fanastic outfit!

My look: Pralù cropped embellished ribbed-knit cardigan, Valensole ribbed-knit braletteicon, and Arancia ribbed-knit shortsicon, all by Jacquemus, Double-Up hat, and Fucking Fantastic socks, all by Ayda, and Balenciaga Triple S sneaker by Balenciaga x adidas.

My Look: Summer Time

Color blocking at its best with Hublot‘s new Big Bang Unico Summer Purple watch. It’s summer in the city and vibrant colors are trending. Matching your watch to your look is the ultimate style goal. I personally love the combination of lime green and fuchsia. An unexpected mixture, that feels fresh and modern.

My look: Marino crepe double-breasted blazer, Limao cropped crepe halterneck topicon, Meloia paneled neon canvas straight-leg pantsicon, and Notte embellished satin shirt, all by Jacquemus, The Mini Twist knotted leather clutch by Bottega Venetaicon, fuchsia suede Tribute sandals by Saint Laurent, and Big Bang Unico Summer Purple by Hublot.

My Look: The Cape-Sleeve Coat

A cape-sleeve coat is one of the most practical items you can have in your wardrobe as it always leaves enough space for your sleeves, especially when they are more voluptuous. This coat features powerful cape-like sleeves and a unique sculptural belted silhouette.

My look: Cape-sleeve belted Milano coat by Max Maraiconpaneled cotton-terry and jersey bi-color sweatshirt, and matching paneled cotton-terry and jersey track pants, pink chain-embellished leather slippers, all by JW Anderson, Playboy Lips appliqué canvas book clutch by Olympia Le Tan, shell chain necklace by Jacquemus, and Carrera Automatic Chronograph by TAG Heuer.

My Look: Pink Is My Color

Truth is, I love everything pink. It is such a powerful color. Pink comprises pop culture and fashion, playfulness and girlhood. It can be innocent and not so innocent, luxurious and tacky. This weekend, I am feeling like floating on a pink cloud because it is my birthday. Therefore I have prepared this post as I will indulge in my special day and take some time off.

My look: La Veste Esterel jacket, matching Valerie cutout woven midi skirticon, Le Haut Pampelonne bralette, and Riviera frayed cotton pumpsicon, all by Jacquemus, small flap bag with top handle by CHANEL, Horsebit blue topaz diamond white gold ringicon by Gucci Fine Jewellery, and Pasha C chronograph in steel (2000) by Cartier.

My Look: Thousand in One Ways Sweater

In January I told you about this must-have sweater for fall the first time (click here for the previous post). Rosie Assoulin‘s «Thousand In One Ways» sweater is named for its seemingly endless styling options – the sleeves can be shrugged off your shoulders, knotted neatly around your waist or detached completely, which turns it into a cropped camisole. It’s been cable-knitted in Italy from a luxuriously soft blend of wool and cotton and has a relaxed fit.

To shop click on the highlighted product description.

My look: Thousand in One Ways convertible cropped cable-knit wool and cotton-blend sweatericon by Rosie Assoulin, Albi ribbed-knit stirrup leggings by Jacquemus, Fiona sandals by The Attico, Diana leather-trimmed printed suede tote by Gabriela Hearst,  GG jacquard pastel shawl by Gucci, and cat eye frame glasses a tortoiseshell effect by Tom Ford.
