Bonpoint Spring-Summer 2017 The fashion guitar

My most recent Haute Couture week in Paris was a little extra special than it usually is, because this time not only the dreamy shows and beautiful dresses made it to an unforgettable week, but even more the fact that I had James and Stella, and my lovely husband by my side. And the reason they travelled with me this time was the kids’ invitation to their very first fashion show: Bonpoint Spring-Summer 2017. And they’ve been talking about it ever since…

ELIE SAAB FW16

Elie Saab FW16 Charlotte Groeneveld

This has to be the best Elie Saab look I’ve ever had the chance to wear to one of their shows – Haute Couture and RTW! A “Period-feel” with the leather details on the skirt, combined with romantic lace. See-through, yet almost completely covered-up. More is definitely less, and the Victorian-style here to stay – for a little longer…

AFTER VALENTINO HAUTE COUTURE PARIS

Charlotte-Groeneveld-Valentino-Haute-Couture-July-2016-16

I’ve been called looking like a shaved cucumber wearing this dress… Yes! Really! I truly don’t understand why “people out there” can compare something so beautiful with a cucumber!?! Maybe it was me… I don’t know, but let’s be honest, you don’t have to be into fashion, nor loving-it-to-bits like I do, to understand the beauty of a piece like this. Anyway, haters will be haters, and fortunately it was only on The New York Time Fashion’s Instagram this trolling person acted out. Green of envy of course lol. That’s how I like to see it…

Chanel SS16 Charlotte Groeneveld

To me Haute Couture is like a dream. If I think about fairy princesses, I think about Couture dresses, preferably with myself in it. There’s no prince nor kissing a frog involved in getting me to feel that magical, a Couture dress would simply do. And I guess that’s what makes me come back to the Couture shows in Paris every season… Last July I was in Rome with Valentino, in January I went to my first Chanel Haute Couture show, and this season it was all my favorites in a row: Valentino, Chanel, and Elie Saab. Dreams do come true…

BERLIN WITH MARC CAIN

Berlin with Marc Cain Charlotte Groeneveld

And before I knew it, I left Berlin for a short stay at Mykonos, and it was Paris on the horizon. Again, working from some place else than I’m actually writing about. In Paris and reflecting on an amazing time in Berlin with Marc Cain. It wasn’t my first time there, but surely the best one of all. The beautiful weather helped, that’s for sure, I saw the city with such different eyes in the beautiful evening lights. But even more the great team behind this German heritage brand. Young and fresh. Inspired by runways from all over the world, bringing an amazing collection to all of us.
