Polished perfection: Hermès ‘Constance’


Bye bye slouchy bags! The new shape for bags is small and square with a long strap and ‘retro-feel’. While everyone else seems to go crazy about Celine’s Heritage model I’d rather take that money straight to Hermès. Not exactly an understatement accessory, the classic ‘Constance’ does offer a prestige that is priceless. Plus we probably won’t get tired of it all too soon as Hermès bags always stay refreshingly fad-resistant!

Anastasia Barbieri featured the Hermès Constance in one of my all-time favourite editorials in Vogue. Très Parisienne! What do you think, Nat?

Birking Watcher

I love how it perfectly matches elegant and simple outfits in soft tones. Quite my bag;-)!

anna dello russo

Oh oh and even Anna wears it! Right there, that’s the proof! It IS a must-have accessory for the global best dressed (see where I’m aiming at? Ha ha!). No I just have to figure out a financial plan (crisis, crisis!) and then this will be my door-opener for Paris Fashion Week. Better than paper tickets. Definitely!

warm weather uniform

Girls, get your jeans shorts out now!! There is just nothing else you could wear with this hot hot weather!

Some of my favourite stylings:




Btw, today is the start of the ventes privees here in Paris. I’m gonna check out IRO and Sandro later today for some good bargains on their current summer collection. I am gonna be so broke at the end of this week…

un week-end a Capri…

As promised, a few impressions of my amazing trip to Capri last weekend. But first of all thanks to my lovely girls for all the fun we had and a huge thank you to the hard-working regatta team, which made this great time possible!!!


Coolest “girl boat” ever… promoting true regatta spirit, all dressed up in our cute Kappa polos…


… our boats…


…unfortunatelly, I did not quite manage to keep my ideal regatta dresscode, but I tried to keep it at least a bit fashionable by wearing this vintage marine scarf from Kiliwatch


…the girls fooling around…

A few more impressions:

H&M festival collection

Just as a small reminder: the highly anticipated H&M Fashion against Aids festival collection is hitting stores today!

These are my favourite pieces:


I love the denim dress and shorts, the little embellished blazer, the leather jacket seems to be just perfect, and this leo print dress is very Lanvin-like… and how cute is the girls festival kit??? Not that I’m lucky enough to have a real reason to buy this stuff (like attending Coachella or Glastonbury), but the Jalouse rocks Paris festival in June could be a good excuse! In any case, I am gonna start my trip through H&M stores in Paris right now and hope to snap at least one of those great pieces! I’ll report back to you;)

Dresscode: Regatta

I just came back from my school’s amazing regatta, which took place this weekend on Capri.

Voila, a little selection of my ideal regatta wardrobe (I meant to post this earlier, but the pre-departure got a bit stressful…)


1. THE essential for each sailing trip is a stripped shirt. This one is by American Vintage, but usually Petit Bateau has some great ones too or just try to go Vintage.

2. Brioni Lurex-knit shorts via net-a-porter. You could just not go to Capri without adding a touch of Missoni glam to your beachwear!

3. Kody leather wedge sandals by Juicy Couture via net-a-porter.

4. Another classic: the espadrille. The Gap has some great ones this summer!

5. Howlite multi-strap drop earings via net-a-porter. Spice up each summer outfit with Isabel Marant’s boho-chic jewelry pieces.

6. Ray-ban wayfarers in red. The Italians just love it!!

7. Panama hat. Just take inspirations from Diane on how to style it!

8. DFV Omaya cutout tunic via net-a-porter. The right choice for the insane white party held at Villa Marina Hotel in Capri.

9./10. As for the beauty essentials: Make sure to have (at least) a little tan, which you could boost with Kiehl’s Facial Fuel Healthy Bronze, and go for bright, orange/red nailpolish. Les Coupines’ favourite for this summer: Monsooner or later by OPI!

I will post some pics of this great trip very very soon!

Picture of the day: Diane in action


I love this picture of Diane playing boules in Chanel. Her outfit is pure perfection: the mix of black&white, the texture of the skirt, the loose braid tied together with a ribbon (note to myself: that is how to wear the hair all summer long), the Panama hat…

Thanks to Garance for sharing the pics of this very intimate Chanel event in St. Tropez, they made my day, here in rainy Paris!

I found you!


I finally found the YSL arty ring, which I have been craving for soooo long! 

After being sold out forever, it miraculously resurfaced in Paris…in my favourite colour and in my size!!! So although it is technically last season (ok with YSL, there can never really be a “last season”), I had to get it immediately. This is gonna be my very favourite summer accessory, next to this oh-so Parisian Vintage scarf, I got a Kiliwatch this weekend.

Obsession du jour: headbands


Recently, I have been totally obsessed with headbands. Ever since my dearest friend Helena sent me one for my birthday, I cannot stop wearing them. Last week I got one from Jennifer Behr, they’re just the best! I’m telling you, headbands are gonna be THE hottest accessory for the summer, so better get your stock up soon!!

1. You can never go wrong with this chain-embellished headband by Jennifer Behr (via net-a-porter).

2. Take some inspirations from THE Queen of headbands Rumi.

3. Camilla headband by Eugenia Kim (via net-a-porter) , the ultimate accessory for a girls’ night out .

4. Spice up a simple “Tee + Jeans” outfit with the circle feather headband from Topshop.

5. Missoni plaited woven headband if you wanna go hippie de luxe (via net-a-porter).

6. Headbands are an obligatory part of the festival uniform (as captured by the Facehunter at Coachella).

Les Coupines in Paris


My dearest Carola is coming to Paris for the weekend!!! Finally, les Coupines are reunited again!
Stay tuned for lots of exciting Paris adventures!

Met Gala 2010

The Met Gala is definitely one of the hottest and most covetted red carpet events of the year. Without doubt, there were lots of beautiful ball gowns, but I’m mostly intrigued by the more daring and unexpected looks. Voila, my very personal favourites:

Chloe Sevigny in a sublime Proenza Schouler frock


Alexa Chung rocking a Phillip Lim tuxedo


Charlotte Kemp Muhl + Sean Lennon (aka hottest couple in town) and Sasha Pivovarova, all übercool in Marni


Charlotte Gainsbourg in Balenciaga


and Les Coupines’ darling Emma Watson in a custom Burberry dress
