White on White

white on white

In the midst of going through my favorite Steve Jobs quotes this past week grieving for one of the world’s greatest and most inspiring entrepreneurs, I re-discovered this statement which is – also – perfectly applicable to fashion:

“Simple can be harder than complex: You have to work hard to get your thinking clean to make it simple.”

Makes so much sense right now, doesn’t it?

So consequently I’ve made my closet undergo a thorough cleanse (really not much left there) and feel like I’m ready for a fresh start into fall. Literally FRESH. Now what feels fresher than going all-white on a dull fall day? PLUS it is so simple. All I need is to reactivate my white skinny denim (which luckily turned up last weekend – I haven’t taken it off since), get an off-white knit sweater (check Sandro!) and add my favorite pair of strappy sandals (the above ones are Giuseppe Zanotti btw). Now this may not be exactly weather-appropriate but let me tell ya that dressing weather-appropriate is for bores. It just is. As for me, I won’t even bother shopping for autumnal colors (Halloween says hi) but look cool in white on white. Cheers!

I love getting ready with Constantin in the morning and watch him put together his outfits! This one has just the perfect color palette for fall: burgundy, different shades of brown and some leopard of course..!

Today, Constantin is relaunching his blog Jesuswassize0.

Make sure to check it out and add it to your blogreader for your daily dose of Constantin glamour ;)


Paris Girl


I just had the most amazing time with my dearest Coupine during Fashion Week in Paris!

LOVE this picture of her on the way to the Carven showperfect Paris girl style.

Carola was wearing an Equipment blouse with her vintage Kiliwatch leather skirt (a little treasure found during our previous Paris trip), Chanel bag, Bottega Veneta sunnies and her brand new Maje booties!

Stay tunned for more Paris memories ?

Amanda Brooks before the Carven show at Jardin des Tuileries. She’s been appointed Fashion Director for Barneys NY beginning of this year and was frontrow at all of the shows here in Paris. I have always loved her effortless blend of high-end designer pieces and individual style.

If you want to know what Parisian girls dress like right now, just take a look at the October issue of Vogue Paris! It’s all about black & white, a dash of vintage Chanel and – this is new! -sporty elements like track pants, biker jackets and denim.

Miss Vogue Editorial_October 2011_II

Tough glamour à la Parisienne: white leather perfecto, chunky vintage jewelry and a black bodysuit. Add a heeled boot et voilà!

Miss Vogue Editorial_October 2011_III

I’m really into the idea of revamping a white denim mini (I mean really, this is something I hide deep-down in my closet!) with those Giuseppe Zanotti two-tone pumps and a little black jacket. The golden Chanel chain is obligatory. Anyone who can pull this off?

Oh I almost forgot about this one: the Peter Pan collar. It’s a mega trend here! And it starts spreading all over Europe… Love the idea of accenting a fluffy mohair sweater dress with a golden collar-shaped necklace! Now try to find one…Tss!

#PFW: Mixed Media at Dries van Noten

Dries van Noten prints

My favorite off-catwalk style so far! I love how this stylish Dries van Noten show-goer expertly mixes different prints, colors and materials. By the way, a super-smart VOGUE editor once said ‘If you can’t match it, CLASH it!’. Remember that when you are desperate in front of your closet;-). X

#PFW: models off-duty

Hanneli Mustaparta

Wide-legged pants and tank tops on Hanneli and her friend. Perfect for the late-summer heat here in PARIS!

Model off-duty at Dries van Noten

Mini leather shorts and a lose-fit white silk top. Simple. Casual. Cool.

Red pants/jeans/corduroys are really having a moment here in Paris. Got a feeling we’ll be seeing them a lot this winter!

Later, babes!


Bonjour Paris!

Bonjour Paris_Fashioncoup

For a start, here’s a pic of the gorgeous Columbine Smille trying on THE Topshop dress of the moment. I really hope she got this one;-)…

Catch up with you later, babes!


Gipsy summer


Right now, I just wanna put on that dress, let my ombre hair down and hit the beach on Ibiza…


Hippie-esque jewelry. All the way!


Love it when the necklaces are longer than the actual dress.

I found these pics in PlanetBlue‘s lookbook and thought they were perfectly capturing that gipsy summer feel of late August days when everyone just seems to need some time OUT. Like away from it all.

The mid-August list

So here’s my Gipsy Summer essential kit:

1. Fringed leather top: All Saints

2. Arty ring in turquoise: YSL on

3. Pelicane ring: Bimba y Lola

4. Crochet mini dress: Topshop

5. Long gold toned necklaces: Topshop

Feather necklace: Isabel Marant on

6. Braided leather clutch: Bottega Veneta

Enjoy your (urban) summer, girls!




An unexpected and truely refreshing choice for the cover of French Vogue September issue: the gorgeous Charlotte Casiraghi.

In the backseat with Kate Moss

In the backseat Kate Moss wedding

Vogue US just revealed an inside look at THE fashion wedding of the year with a collection of amazing and partially never-seen-before shots by no other than superstar photographer Mario Testino. You HAVE to check this out! It’s gonna be the new benchmark for a dream wedding, seriously! My favourite take? The above is an hommage to Mick & Bianca Jagger’s backseat wedding portrait from 1971. Major!

Oh and the bridemaids line-up wasn’t bad either! From left: Stella McCartney, Vivienne Westwood, Jess Hallett, Kate Moss, Rosemary Ferguson.
