PURPLE LOVE WITH IENKI IENKI

Charlotte Groeneveld Thefashionguitar wearing Ienki Ienki vest

I love Balenciaga A LOT lately, but going all out in one brand is not my thing, so I tried to recreate my favorite Fall look… One of the best things Balenciage EVER did – in my opinion – is bringing these sock boots to the market. Not anything new, they’ve been around, but these have just the right amount of edge to be up my street! I’ve been wearing them a lot, and they are in fact quite comfortable. You don’t believe me? Of course, they’re “high”, and in more than one way (you really don’t have to wear tights when you wear these) but when a shoe has a certain level of quality, they usually come with a great deal comfort. Though, I’m not wearing them when I know I’m going to have to walk a lot. It’s for the slower days, taxi in, taxi out, meeting here, meeting there. ANYWAY, I recreated this Balanciaga-inspired look with a few of my favorite new winter pieces. Want to know which ones? Read more…

BONPOINT FALL 2017 PART II

Charlotte Groeneveld styling Bonpoint Fall 2017 for Thefashionguitar

And so the story begins… Summer 2016, in Toronto, getting accustomed to our new “temporary” home-town, but longing back to our New York days. An email reaches me, from the one brand – I always told myself – I would want to work with, with James and Stella: Bonpoint. A little dream that came true, one that I never really talked about with anyone, because I prefer to stay away from the term mommy-blogger, which for many automatically occurs when you work with your kids. Nothing negative about it, though, but it’s just not where my ambitions lie. Nor do I want to expose my kids to the industry too much, yet. But here we are, three seasons down the road, three shows further, of which James and Stella walked one, and I feel much more comfortable with them being involved “in my work” once in a while. It’s more the negativity in general, around sharing your kids on social media, that worried me in the past, I think. I now know, that it all comes down to the way you do this. To me, the most important thing in doing this; it has to stay far away from being “commercial” looking, I try to keep it highly tasteful, and as I like to think “real” and artistic in the way I capture them and share this. Hence, 3 campaign shoots – in winter and summer – later, in urban vibes or countryside, from New York, to Paris, and Toronto; it’s time for Bonpoint Fall 2017! It’s time to get ready for the next show…

COUNTING DOWN THE DAYS, AND THREE THINGS I LOVE TO DO IN NEW YORK OVER THE HOLIDAYS…

Charlotte Groeneveld for Tiffany & Co fragrance

Slowly, I’m getting accustomed to the idea that yet another year is coming to an end, and we’re spending another Christmas and New Year’s Eve far away from many of our close friends and family. Generally I’m not too sentimental about it – I mean, life goes on – but as mentioned in an earlier article on Thefashionguitar.com, scents/fragrances tend to bring back memories… They can take me back in time… So in the spirit of the holidays, and since we are talking fragrance today, here’s a little breakdown of a few favorite things I like to do in the days leading up to the holidays! Just because it smells so good…
