My first look from Paris Fashion Week finally relates the the current season of the year. No more summer dresses and shorts. It’s getting colder and colder so my wardrobe is slowly transforming. I wear more jumpers and jackets, because they are the only ones that keep me warm.
You know that I’m a big fan of two-piece outfits (look here and here) and I found a great solution for autumn. This PINKO two-piece is knitted, it keeps me warm, it’s really cosy but also I feel very elegant wearing it. I would say it’s perfect for Paris, as I always feel the pressure to dress more elegantly and wear more feminine clothes when I’m there. I also wore my new Miu Miu sunglasses, Chanel sling-back shoes and the mini bucket bag from Simon Miller. I’ll show you my other PFW looks soon!

During my last trip to Paris I had a chance to stay in hotel Le Pigalle, located in my favourite Montmartre. I’m always happy to stay in this area, otherwise I never have a time to go there – most fashion week shows, events take place in Le Marais, Saint Germain or near Louvre.
I loved everything about my stay in Le Pigalle. Every single detail, a furniture, a room or even a bathroom were perfectly designed. I could feel the art spirit. I hope to stay there next time I’m in Paris!

Paris it’s always a good idea! I’ve just come back from a few days long trip to Paris for Men’s Fashion Week. I had the pleasure to stay in The COQ Hotel my favourite boutique hotel located very close to Jardin de Luxembourg and Saint Germain. I feel like it’s my home away from home. I’ve stayed there for the second time and enjoyed it even more than the last time. I love small boutique hotels because they’re cosy, very often run by its members, who take care of their guests with special attention and it feels like home. The lobby and the lounge in COQ hotel is arranged in a beautiful living room setting ( I wish I had such an amazing one in my London flat! ) with designer furniture and home accessories, from magazines to photography books. Plus a lot of plants and a glasstop roof which gives the whole area a winter garden look where you can enjoy your time with a glass of French wine and eventually play Scrabble or Monopoly, or more realistically work on your computer or iPhone.
You can see more photos from my trip on my Instagram. And if you’re planning to visit Paris soon, I can highly recommend a stay in COQ hotel.

Paris is always a good idea! Two weeks ago I had a pleasure to visit Paris to take part in the shooting of the new video commercial for the launch of the ultra lightweight suitcase by Samsonite. It was a great experiance to see the creative process of this kind of initiative and meet the amazing people from Samsonite. For the first time Samsonite used drones to enlight the weight of the suitcase. It was incredible to watch the suitcases fly over Paris, I have never experienced anything like it, it was even more like an artistic performance than a commercial. Check out the result HERE.
