After weeks of terrible weather and rain, summer seems to be back in Paris!
The pink hair trend was spotted on this Spring’s runway shows of Giles, Zac Posen and with some variations also at Proenza Schouler. At first, I was a bit skeptical about the actual wearability of this trend…but now that I saw it on favourite Swedish fashionblogger Carolina , I think its kinda cute!!
What do you guys think of it?

Les Coupines just love the Helmut Lang Collection for this Spring…its the right mix of clear lines and edgy prints!
1. Spray ombre silk dress, 2. Cellophane print jersey top, 3. Dry crepe ruched dress, 4. Cotton blend burn-out t-shirt, 5. Crackled leather jacket.
I’m particularly obsessed with the dry crepe ruched dress. Actually, it does not look too special on the picture above. But I tried it on last week at Merci Store here in Paris and it has the perfect fit and a sublime cut-out at the back. So, I’m currently making up all kinds of fancy events, which could justify the investment into this dress. Then again, do you ever need an excuse for a great fitting LBD?!?

As always when there’s a change of season, you start wondering what to wear…well, I’ve the feeling I just have winter clothes here in Paris, so I really need to do some Spring shopping asap!
Voila, a small selection of my favourite streestyle inspirations for Spring:

…and some of our favourites from last seasons like sharp shoulders, leopard and good old chucks in bright colours.
What do you think are the essentials for Spring?!
Today its the official start of Spring!
I’ve waited so long for this, so lets hope that the mild temperatures stay around…

Isabel Marant + Me = Total Love Story
Season after season, I’m a huge fan of Marant’s effortless and oh so Parisian style! So for next Spring it’s gonna be the sexy Pirate girl look with embellished jackets, hot pink and as always very short dresses. I don’t know about you, but I’m totally digging it !! Check the whole collection here.
Time during fashion weeks is CRAZY…it almost feels like being in a race against your blogreader, trying to keep up with all that new fashion material each day. There are so many new pictures and inspirations, it’s total information overload – in a good way! So, while all the attention already shifted to London, I am still catching up with New York! Voila, a few of my personal highlights from NY fashion week…
This picture by Jak & Jil is definitely today’s highlight! I like how it all blends together: Heidi Mount’s dark make-up, the pattern of her Alexander Wang romper, the pops of blue in the background and the tattoo like arm painting kept from the Rodarte show. Speaking of which, Kate and Laura once again managed to create a truely fantastic collection with an incredible mix of materials, lots of deconstruction and an “out-of-this-world” vibe. Check out the pictures of their collection here.
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…
