Before I jump back into the show reviews and that post that BIG shoot I did during the most recent Paris Haute Couture week, I wanted to share all my looks from that week with you. I’ve never done a “Fashion Week outfit recap” before, because I prefer to give every single look I wear during Fashion Week the attention it deserves: by dedicating one full blog post around it. However, it happened to not work out the way I envisioned it… And basically what happened is that over the past YEAR – argh shame on me – I’ve created a huge folder on my computer with way too many looks, from way too many different Fashion Weeks, that are still “waiting to get posted”. Now is having a lot of content as a back-up not really a problem you would think, yet the problem is though, the content – meaning the looks – are not all completely relevant anymore… Some are too trend sensitive, some are too wintery – and we’re in summer now – and some are basically too special to get posted on a regular Monday, so to speak. Sh*t, so what am I going to do with all those beautiful images I have still left??? On the other hand, it is my job to create relevant content for you, no matter what time of the year, what looks, or what topic. So I see it as a fun challenge – which I love to take on – to MAKE IT WORK anyway! For now, something you will find more often in the future: A recap of my Fashion Week looks!
Take your oldest pair of jeans – like I did with the flared MIH Jeans I’m wearing in today’s post – and combine it with your latest purchase: this Rosie Assoulin top. Voila, a fresh new look you probably never thought off, simply created with a piece from your wardrobe you most likely forgot about – yes, you will have to dig in that closet of yours to find what you will need, but it will be worth it!
So many emotions and so proud looking back at the images from the Bonpoint Spring-Summer 2018 show in Paris last week. But let me start with a little note to those out there who still like to judge the fact I let my kids walk a fashion show: Your comments are not needed. James and Stella walked the show out of free will. Nobody ever forced then, in fact it came from the fact they asked to walk the show after they saw the one from last year. Moreover, there is nothing wrong with offering your kids a wide spectrum of experiences. Remember you did your ballet performance when you were little? Well it’s a bit like that. Of course, I’m not going to deny there are parents out there who do force their kids to perform, on whatever level or subject, but trust me on this one: We do not, and James and Stella loved being part of The Bonpoint Spring-Summer 2018 show!
Having that said, I’m so excited to share all these beautiful images with you! Jamie, one of my super talented friends from The Netherlands came in for the day to document everything from start to finish. Usually it was me doing all of that, with Thomas being the super dad as he is, making sure the kids would behave when on the front row. But with James and Stella walking the actual show this season, I couldn’t risk missing anything while taking photos of other little sweethearts, so she there she was: Jamie as the best backstage photographer I could have wished for. Shooting those little moments of my kids, just as I would have done. Nothing posed, only real moments.
A print for a late summer weddings in the countryside, just right for when the golden hour hits, sundown perfection. Or simply to stand out in the office on a gloomy summer day. No matter where to, you wear this pair of Dolce & Gabbana pants, you will lighten up the room. And we’ve talked about this before, you know where I stand when it comes to colors and patterns; it can be a deal breaker.
Officially I can’t call this a double denim look, but it surely has everything to it to make it feel like one. Double denim has always been my thing… I love to wear it in combination with a retro pair of glasses, or with a cool pair of shades, or simply because it’s a different kind of denim that I like to try. However, what all my denim looks have in common, is the color. As particular I am with bright colors and prints, so am I when it comes to my favorite color of denim. You probably haven’t seen me often with a light denim washing – though I might need to give it another try now my hair is less white blond – or jeans and jackets with those washed out patches on the arms or legs. I like my denim to be on the medium darker end and with enough “blue” in it, which is why today’s look to me qualifies for the category “Double Denim”. Yet recently I kind of feel myself pulled towards black washed denim too… I might have to give it a try soon, what do you think? And of course, I still feel the need to get this Balenciaga jacket. Such a wardrobe staple!
