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!

Lorenza Rosé


Let me introduce you to Lorenza, well actually Michele Lorenza Ouellet.

This girl is a fashion model turned…ta-dawinemaker!! Seriously, HOW COOL IS THAT?

Michele produces a blended, dry rosé wine with a wonderfully distinct fruity/spicy note. The grapes are grown on her parents’ vineyard in Nothern California. Lorenza is not only a great alternative to French rosé, but stands out through its fun packaging (yes, above we see a picture of the label) and marketing concept.

I guess we found ourselves the most fashionable drink for this summer ;) You can order it here.

Oh, and this is Michele Lorenza shot by Garance Doré in the middle of her vineyards:


Just love her style!


What to wear for work

grey suit the sartorialist

Today is Nati’s first day at her new job in Paris! And knowing my beloved Coupine I also KNOW that she’s been searching her closet and every trusted store in the city for the entire past week to find a suit-able outfit. Now with workwear it totally depends on the job and the sector you’re working in. In Nati’s case I would say it has to be chic and professional rather than formal. Which can be tricky! Therefore, I have picked out a couple of fail-safe outfits that seem to fit the bill!

Be inspired, dearest!

camel coat and YSL bag

Apart from searching for the perfect suit (which can take years) it is probably a smart move to invest in a classic camel coat for fall. I like mixing it with whites and a hat for early fall!

A peek at Viviana’s fall shopping list

shopping guide_viviana volpicella

Girls, you HAVE to check out’s fall shopping guide! Why? International Fashion Influencers like Anna dello Russo, Garance Doré and Rachel Zoe reveal what’s on top of their shopping list for the new season and share their favourites in a beautifully edited guide. My personal highlight is Viviana Volpicella’s choice, whose cool Italian style I simply ADORE.

One of Viviana’s picks for fall is this super-cute leopard messenger bag from FENDI. I really can’t wait for that bag to hit the stores! It’s gonna be my fast-track to cool for any plain outfit.

Here’s one of my favourite Viviana outfits. A beautiful lace dress set off with a cool military parka, YSL sandals and the gorgeous Prada plastic clutch. So simple, so cool! Her signature style includes Rayban Wayfarers (I’ve actually never seen her without) and a pop of color.

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!

at Dior: Garance Dore

After meeting Garance last season in Paris, I saw her again yesterday in front of the Dior show. And this time I did not hesitate to ask my all time favourite blogger for a picture..


As always she was incredibly sweet and stylish with her cropped coat and her Chloe lace-up booties – no wonder the Facehunter wanted to take a pic of her..


So I followed Garance a bit, while she was searching a new motive…


…which she found with the incredibly gorgeous Miroslava Duma in a total Chloe look


…so I tried myself with the same motiv..


Hmm, guess whose picture is gonna be better…;)?!

Alexa’s style diary


Alexa Chung is one of our favourite it-girls and always a source of inspiration when it comes to quirky and creative dressing. Now, thanks to Vogue UK, we have the possibility to follow Alexa’s style choices every day for a whole month. Unfortunatelly, the quality of the pics is not the best, yet they offer us a little glimpse into Alexa’s daily fashion choices. We wanna see more of that!

Valentine’s countdown


It’s one week until Valentine’s and here are some of the best picks for our all time favourite holiday:

1.+2.: If you wanna go truely luxe for Valentine’s don’t miss out on Miu Miu‘s capsule collection for this special occasion. I love the little embalished patent-leather pochette and the plain tee with puffy heart-shaped sleeves.

3. (Diptyque) Red special edition candle. Its vanilla/ rooibos fragrance is just delicious, plus it helps a good cause!

4. Marc by Marc Jacobs Electro Pop cosmetic case. Seen at MyTheresa.

5. If you wanna go sweet on Valentine’s , there is no way around some Laduree macaroons. Get them in this most girly gift box by Yazbukey.

6. Carlota’s heart-shaped biscuits. Seen at Colette Paris.

Finally, if you’re looking for a more personal and creative gesture for Valentine’s day, get inspired by this super cute Garance Dore story!!


Garance Doré

Garance Dore

Garance Doré is one of our all time favourite bloggers!  She has an incredible talent to take pictures of girls, which underline their inner beauty. And Garance has a great sense of humour. We LOVE her stories about her newest style addictions, little fashion emergencies and all the other girl talk. So it has become one of our favourite daily routines, to check her blog in the morning! Garance has been doing some great work and has been rewarded for that: recently, she launched a limited collection of T-shirts with the GAP (which sadly sold out immediately) and is now working very closely with French Vogue (could there be a better match?) to do some behind the scenes coverage.

Taking our high appreciation for Garance’s work, you can certainly imagine that we had the most surreal moment ever, when we met her and the Sartorialist in the Metro on the way to the Chloe Show, during Fashion Week. Garance was stunning in person! So natural, and sweet and very chic wearing her short- sleeved Max Mara coat. So we talked to her – actually Garance did most of the talking, we were so taken by her charisma that we could merely sit there and listen. We were even too excited to ask for a picture (sooo stupid of us!!).

Well, I promise I stop obsessing now…but let me still show you some of my very favourite pictures by Garance…

subtrend: aviator chic

Aviator Chic

The first impressions of the new Alexander Wang collection for Spring 2010 really surprised me: here I had  expected yet another grunge inspired collection with lots of black leather and sexy denim. However, Alex turned to a more sporty theme, without compromising his usual sexiness, though. Inspired by his collaboration with the GAP earlier this year, he stayed true to the all-American sportswear spirit. He used lots of khaki and grey, red and white rugby stripes and brown leather, all spiced up with some pretty hot leopard peep toe booties. There was one particular elemenent of his collection, which immediately caught my attention: aviator inspired pieces like an aviator cap, a great jacket and little applications all in caramel-brown leather.

I always had a thing for the aviator look, so I started thinking of how to work the look for the upcoming season already…
