Lookbook: Paris Haute Couture Week - FW 2017/2018


Here is some of my looks from the Haute Couture Fall/Winter 2017/2018 Week in Paris where I attended a selection of shows and presentations such as Rami Kadi, Alexis Mabille, Georges Hobeika, Tony Ward, Georges Chakra, Xuan Couture, Julien Fourni√© and Rami Al Ali. 

Starting with this red hit look that has been posted on the Street Style section of Vogue British, Vogue Germany, Vogue Arabia and WWD. I know right? This was a big moment for me. Seeing yourself under the Vogue word is like a red and white billboard telling you "you've got approved" and even if you trust your style and your message, it definitely feels (soooo) good and motivates you for the next steps. I'm wearing the Le Coq Sportif by Jean-Charles de Castelbajac hoodie, a Cortefiel Palazzo and a Mint&Berry fanny bag.

Summer breeze


There are dresses that you want to wear all summer. Maxi-dresses are my go-to when temperatures rise and inspiration on how to be covered, fresh and still look stylish goes down. Effortless, chic, incredibly light and delicate, this Mint&Berry dress had my heart as soon as I tried it on. Combined with a hat for the beach or a voluminous scarf for when the sun sets its rays, this dress is a summer call for thoughtless and peaceful vacation moments.

Seeing Red


This year's runways are bold and bright as they are bringing back the striking colour red playing it casually like it was the colour black. Red, finally back and far from the Cindy Crawford's 1991 plunging Versace gown at the Oscars. This time we have seen a range of revisited red. Including different tints, models and materials: Valentino's vinyl trench, Dior's red bright party dress or Balenciaga's haute oversized hoodies. Therefore, it's only natural that I embrace this mode with one of the few colours that has its own language of braveness and power. To realize this, and since everything from the 90's is having a revival, I chose a tracksuit kind of bottom from Lost Ink. To cope with that much statement I added a black scarf, a destructured white shirt and here we are, spring ready for fall and ready to talk without speaking. 

Blue Stripes x Yellow


Sometimes, Instagram is a great source of inspiration. Who would combine blue stripes and yellow except the Uruguay flag? Well, a lot of stylish women apparently so I gave it a try and frankly, I loved the effect. In a moment of audacity, I even added a red lipstick which contrasts with this blue shirt perfectly. And as I'm breaking almost all my codes, I wore the shirt in reverse. I know, living on the edge. Wearing yellow and smiling to walls: bloggers, right? Don't worry I still faithfully wore my black scarf and sunglasses to compensate with these fabulous wide leg trousers. Final word? Dare my dear. 

50 textures of black


We are back with Athleisure on a darker version. Switzerland is shiny and has amazing spots for industrial shots. This one was next to a rail train and the little bridge bringing to the other side was everything but inevitable for this photoshoot. This time I combined black pleated trousers with a Missguided hoodie and black high heels. Don't look for the statement piece, the look is a statement itself. Differences of textures, style plays, transparent hand sleeve on a touch of red on the lips. 

Rami Al Ali - Fashion Forward Dubai


We don't introduce him anymore. Rami Al Ali pieces were worn by Beyonc√©, Kelly Rowland, Kerry Washington and more. I was delighted to try one of his dresses and I directly put my eyes on this short and blue piece. Pleated trousers and a falling scarf on the sleeveless part of the dress to have a balanced composition. A Rula Galayini clutch later and I was ready to be photographed under a rainy Paris in front of a door that reminded me more of a sunny Sidi Bu Said.
