My Look: Cat Lady

«Stay committed to your decisions, but stay flexible in your approach. Flexibility is a requirement for survival. Have the will of a tiger, the strength of a leopard, and the heart of a lion.»

I like being a cat lady. If I was an animal, I would love to be a big cat. In my world, leopard is a color. This season, the classic print has been given a serious rebranding, and has been spotted allover. The best brand to look out for animal prints is by far Dolce & Gabbana! No doubt about that.

My look: Kim leopard-print cotton-blend chenille jumpsuit, and Sicily small crystal and leather handbag, both by Dolce & Gabbanalaser-cut leather corset belt by Alaïa, Mitza ring by Dior Fine Jewellerygrooved cabochon clip earringsicon and Cherry leather platform ankle boots, both by Saint Laurent.

My Look: Saloni

Saloni Lodha’s Indian heritage and nomadic lifestyle inspire her brand – the name of which means ‘beautiful’ in Sanskrit. Since launching in 2011, its collections have become known for vibrant colors, playful prints and flattering draped dresses. However, one of her absolute bestsellers is this velvet jumpsuit. No wonder why… it is so comfortable yet stylish and chic at once.

My Look: Tropézienne

Feeling very «tropézienne» in the small seaside town of Saint Tropez on the French Riviera. Its fame started in the 50s and 60s, when Brigitte Bardot set foot on the soil of this fishing town. From then until today, this place never ceases to intrigue with its tiny streets and beautiful colors. A great time to come here is at the end of the season for the Voiles de St. Tropez, which is one of the most prestigious regattas in the Mediterranean. Both ultramodern yachts and rare wooden yachts participate in it. This year, it takes place between September 29, 2023 until October 8, 2023.

My look: Fringed wool and cashmere-blend jacquard scarficon, and printed stretch-jersey leggings, both by Valentino, Playboy Lips appliqué canvas book clutch by Olympia Le-Tan, black bandeau topmetal glass pearls leather earrings, and logo metal chain belt, all by CHANEL, and Jodie black suede platform sandals by Saint Laurent.

My Look: Make Change Together

Greeting from Mykonos where the Meltemi, a dry northern wind blows over the Aegean during summer strongly. A headscarf is then a great idea to keep hair in place and prevent it from tangling.

Shopping sustainably starts with investing in the right pieces and keeping them for many years to come. An Hermès silk carré is a great example for such an item. My grandmother gifted me with my first one when I was a kid. If you take good care of your collection, you can hand them over to the next generation. Making change together is all about making little transformations within your own behaviors toward a more beautiful and happier life. Trust me on that!

My look: Embellished tulle-trimmed stretch-jersey and open-knit maxi dressicon by PatBO, Tess small embossed two-tone leather shoulder bagicon by Chloébead-embellished flat sandalsicon by Saint Laurent, «Caparacons de la France et de L’Inde» 90cm silk twill scarf (designed by Philippe Ledoux, first launched in 1959, re-editions in 1997 and 2008) by Hermès, leopard print lens sunglasses by Dolce & Gabbana, Ras Du Cou silver-tone, shell and beaded necklaceicon, iconand gold-tone and shell earrings, both by Isabel Marant.
