I’ve always had a taste for pictures taken on pedestrian crossings that I could see on Fashion Week street style reports and magazines. It makes you look dynamic, spontaneous, as if the picture had been taken on the spot, catching that particular moment you were crossing the street. But what those pictures can’t tell is that I actually walked back and forth a dozen times to finally find the perfect angle without too many people and cars in the background. Another thing a like is the contrasted effect of the white lines on the dark ground that adds more structure to the shots.
My outfit was pretty simple as usual combining staples but with a little twist. Take that Gauchère shirt for instance, it actually is fully perforated with tiny holes which erase its usual wise connotation. My camel maxi vest is also one of the main players there. This piece isn’t the handiest one, it get dirty and wrinkled easily, it doesn’t keep you warm, always conveys a dramatic and alluring style to any plain outfit. If you’re eager to buy a similar one, make sure to pay special attention to the fabric, it must be thick and heavy enough to make you look taller and elegant. The cherry on top is obviously the Furla mini bag I’m wearing (and not only for its color). You may have noticed that it’s a brand I feature quite often on the blog since I work with their press agency in Paris. I had the chance to discover the new collection on Wednesday and I loved it so get ready to see some more! Bisous.
