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 ?

Before Carven: Amanda

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.


#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

Paris Fashion Week has officially kicked off! Highlight of the day: Dries van Noten. Stay tuned for our #PFW adventures;-). Xx

Garance x Reiss


The good news first: all of us who missed out on those highly coveted T-shirts by Garance Dore for Gap, have now the possibility to get one of these goodies for Elle UK readers!!

The bad news: if you’re not a UK resident or have your BBF living there (who will run to the newsstand and fdex you Elle’s newest issue + t-shirt) it might be difficult to score one of them!

LUCKILY, Garance thought of us… and all we have to do is share our worst (fashion) advice ever!!

Bon, we should be able to come up with something, right…;)??

Happy weekend and good luck!

She looks stunning in her Chanel Haute Couture gown.

Happy Monday to everyone!! xx

Miu Miu’s new face


New talent and True Grit star Hailee Steinfeld is officially the new face of Miu Miu.

14-year old Hailee has given proof of an excellent, and above all age appropriate, style! She has rocked red carpets outfits from Marchesa to Prabal Gurung, but it’s indeed Miu Miu, which suits her the best:


To me Hailee and MiuMiu are a lovely match! What do you think about Miuccia’s choice of the new face??


Together with Elle Fanning, Hailee represents a new generation of natural and down-to-earth, young actresses, who have fun with fashion, without overdoing it. We want to see more of that!!!


Hailee and Elle styled by Julia von Boehm for the Hollywood issue of Vanity Fair!

Hannah’s Chloe

Today, Chloé announced the end of Hannah McGibbon’s contract as creative director of the fashion house.

During the past three years, Hannah’s work has always been quite controversial…especially her last collection, which went way too heavy on snakeskin prints. Despite all, Hannah did a great job at Chloe, so let’s have a look at Les Coupines’ favourites:

This spring’s collection was full of wonderfull ballet references (which are perfectly captured in this video featuring prima ballerina Janie Taylor)…we loved the tulle and pleated skirts, the mix of nude and red, and also those sublime black leather shorts.


Our highlights of past collections include the very vintage-like denim patch work look, those perfect dark green velvet pants with the cute cristal and bow embellished ballet flats and the little silk shorts and scallop appliques from Hannah’s debut collection.


New creative director succeeding power women Hannah McGibbon, Phobe Philo and Stella McCartney, will be Pringle of Scotland’s Claire Waight Keller. We’re excited to see where Chloe is heading next…

If I may add this (Carola):
